Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
Peter F. Drucker
Baron Guy de Rothschild
Peace is not something you wish for; It's something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away.
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.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

On my return I took a wrong turn and wound up lost at about three in the morning in East St. Louis, a place I had heard horror stories about for as long as I can remember. I drove around until my tank was nearly dry, expecting to get carjacked at every...

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.
