Integrity is congruence between what you know, what you profess, and what you do.
When we all pay full attention to our truest nature; when we are all in total, sincere alignment with our own integrity; when we deeply honour our talents and value ourselves; and when we utterly surrender to what we discover within, that is when our world shows up to reflect us.
Annie Zalezsak, April 18, 2020 from blog A World that Works for Everyone
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
Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you.
H Jackson Brown Jr
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
The shortest and surest way to live with honor in the world is to be in reality what we would appear to be.
If you want to be successful, you must respect one rule. Never lie to yourself.
You cannot look at that which you do not want and not join and perpetuate that vibration. Take your attention from that which is not in harmony with who you are, and your “now vibration” will adjust to who you really are – and then you can uplift others.
Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in Portland, OR on Tuesday, June 10, 1997
A man is not much if he can't depend on himself, and nothing if others can't depend on him.
In our culture, snails are not considered valiant animals – we are constantly exhorting people to “come out of their shells” – but there’s a lot to be said for taking your home with you wherever you go.
If a man loses pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured, or far away.
Henry David Thoreau
Confidence on the outside begins by living with integrity on the inside.
If you feel drawn to someone, but you are annoyed because you think that they are telling you some lies, try to look beyond the lies and try to focus upon the feeling. People offer all kinds of words for all kinds of different reasons. Most lies are offered to try to keep things in alignment. We’re not encouraging it, but the motive behind lying is usually a pretty honorable motive. In other words, when a child lies to their parents, it’s usually because they want to be free to do what they want to do, and they don’t want their parents to be upset about it. It’s about wanting an alignment. Physical ears have a hard time hearing this. You keep talking about “We need to be honest.” And we say, we don’t meet any of you who are honest. Even those who claim to be the most virtuous, are not honest, but your vibration always is. We would trust the feeling more than the words.
Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in Houston, TX on Saturday, January 13, 2001
Happiness begins with impeccability of the word. The way to measure the impeccability of my word is to ask, “Am I happy or am I suffering?” If I'm suffering, then I'm not being impeccable with my word.

You really must do what's right for you. Because if it isn't right for you, it isn’t right for them, either.
Annie Zalezsak 13 July 2011
We must do what we conceive to be right and not bother our heads or burden our souls with whether we’ll be successful. Because if we don’t do the right thing, we’ll do the wrong thing and we'll be part of the disease and not part of the cure.
E F Schumacher
I have found that the greatest help in meeting any problem with decency and self-respect and whatever courage is demanded, is to know where you yourself stand. That is, to have in words what you believe and are acting from.
William Faulkner (1897-1962) American Writer
If there is one thing upon this earth that mankind love and admire better than another, it is a brave man, – it is the man who dares to look the devil in the face and tell him he is a devil.
James A Garfield
To think is easy. To act is hard. But the hardest thing in the world is to act in accordance with your thinking.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.
Donald A Adams, former Rotary president
Let no man turn aside, ever so slightly, from the broad path of honour, on the plausible pretence that he is justified by the goodness of his end. All good ends can be worked out by good means.
Charles Dickens (1812-1870) English novelist
To aim at the best and to remain essentially ourselves is one and the same thing.
Janet Erskine Stuart
Honesty is telling the truth to ourselves and others. Integrity is living that truth.
The first virtue of all really great men is that they are sincere. They eradicate hypocrisy from their hearts.
Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not.
