Ralph Waldo Emerson
What I’ve experienced is that I can’t know the future. I can’t know if anything that I do will change what happens tomorrow. I can’t know with certainty, but what I do know is if I do nothing, nothing will change.
A constructive, useful life, good works, and good relationships are as valid as writing poetry or inventing a machine. Anything that one does well and obtains satisfaction from is a good enough reason for living. To be a decent human being that people like and feel better for knowing is enough.
Peter F. Drucker
Dr. Wayne Dyer
Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn't blow in the wind or change with the weather. It is your inner image of yourself, and if you look in there and see a man who won't cheat, then you know he never will.

Major Williams Tree, Michigan
Integrity is doing the right thing, not because you have to, but because you want to.
Kim N, Sacramento, CA
I think more people should start giving themselves "integrity checks". Then they may start thinking before speaking or acting out of emotion. Once you do or say something,you cannot take it back, so think first and ALWAYS BE HONEST in what you are doing. If your ashamed stop!
Sarah Mullen, the South
I think a big part of integrity is doing what you say you'll do...keeping promises to others and to yourself...being true to your committments. I agree with an earlier post. Integrity is becoming extinct.
Integrity is about looking in the mirror and holding yourself accountable to none other than... yourself.
Beau Hodson, Chicago, IL
The truth can hurt, but sometimes its worth the cleanse of our souls.
