It is better to fail in a cause that will ultimately succeed than to succeed in a cause that will ultimately fail.
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
Peter F. Drucker
Dr. Wayne Dyer
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.
I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.
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
Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful.
Dr. Samuel Johnson

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.
