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.
John D. MacDonald
Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not.
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
Harland David "Colonel""" Sanders
Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.
W. Clement Stone
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.
To be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; to be credible we must be truthful.
Edward R. Murrow

"Integrity is the recognition of the fact that you cannot fake your consciousness."-Ayn Rand. Remember that your mind and body are permanently integrated. If your actions contradict your convictions you are on a path to self-disintegration, i.e. self-destruction.

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.
