Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. Weak men wait for opportunities; strong men make them.
Orison Swett Marden
If your success is not on your own terms, if it looks good to the world but does not feel good in your heart, it is not success at all.
Theodor Seuss Geisel
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
That you may retain your self-respect, it is better to displease the people by doing what you know is right, than to temporarily please them by doing what you know is wrong.
William J.H. Boetcker
Because life is a living, breathing work of art, you are a painting as you go. Be a masterpiece. Drink in life. Laugh too loud. Compliment others constantly.
I am resolved that I will not through humility become the devil's attorney. I will endeavor to speak a good word for the truth.
Henry David Thoreau
Dr. Wayne Dyer
To be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; to be credible we must be truthful.
Edward R. Murrow
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.

Ernie VSubmitted by Lupe
My hero is my brother! He had to raise me since I was ten years old and he was only 20! He had to put aside his likes and life for me and he never regretted it or complained. He has taught me the values of life and could not be more appreciated. Thank you Ernie for all you do!

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.
