Thomas S. Monson
“Courage becomes a worthwhile and meaningful virtue when it is regarded not so much as a willingness to die manfully but as a determination to live decently.”
Thomas S. Monson

“They all have excellent resumes... So what I’m trying to find out is how they will behave under pressure.”
Hyman G. Rickover

Elizabeth Goudge
“Because of course she had known she must go. She always did the thing because in obedience lay the integrity that God asked of her. If anyone had asked her what she meant by integrity she would not have been able to tell them but she had seen it once like a picture in her mind, a root going down into the earth and drinking deeply there. No one was really alive without that root.”
Elizabeth Goudge, The Scent of Water

“Your integrity is sacrosanct. It is who you are. Never let anyone step on your integrity - that's absolutely where you must stand solid.”
Ret. Gen. Peter Pace

Charles Haddon Spurgeon
“God grant, if we must have two eyes, that they may be both clear ones, one the eye of faith wholly fixed on Christ, the other the eye of obedience equally and wholly fixed on the same objective!”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“I knew, as every peasant does, that land can never be truly owned. We are the keepers of the soil, the curators of trees.”
Lisa St. Aubin de Terán, The Palace the Palace

Willa Cather
“Cavenaugh rubbed his hands together and smiled his sunny smile.

'I like that idea. It's reassuring. If we can have no secrets, it means we can't, after all, go so far afield as we might,' he hesitated, 'yes, as we might.'

Eastman looked at him sourly. 'Cavenaugh, when you've practiced law in New York for twelve years, you find that people can't go far in any direction, except-' He thrust his forefinger sharply at the floor.'Even in that direction, few people can do anything out of the ordinary. Our range is limited. Skip a few baths, and we become personally objectionable. The slightest carelessness can rot a man's integrity or give him ptomaine poisoning. We keep up only be incessant cleansing operations, of mind and body. What we call character, is held together by all sorts of tacks and strings and glue. ("Consequences")”
Willa Cather, American Fantastic Tales: Terror and the Uncanny from Poe to the Pulps

“You don't have to walk on water, it's how you walk on land.”
Jason Crabb

Wil Zeus
“Deep layers of context are missed when cursorily reading for quantity at the expense of comprehension - only the vapid are impressed by those who try to squeeze as many books as possible into each passing month as if shoving one more oiled hot dog down the gullet in a food eating contest to prove accumulation superiority.”
Wil Zeus

Gideon Haigh
“Sambit Bal may be right that this is a scandal the IPL needed. It certainly brings fans face-to-face with the tangled reality of their amusement, based as it is on a self-seeking, self-perpetuating commercial oligarchy issued licenses to exploit cricket as they please. Whether the fans care is another matter: one of the reasons Indians have embraced economic liberalisation so fervently is a shoulder-shrugging resignation about the efficiency and integrity of their institutions. Given the choice between Lalit Modi, with his snappy suits and his soi-disant 'Indian People's League', and the BCCI, stuffed with grandstanding politicians and crony capitalists, where would your loyalties lie?”
Gideon Haigh

Sam Harris
“Honesty can force any dysfunction in your life to the surface. Are you in an abusive relationship? A refusal to lie to others – How did you get that bruise? – would oblige you to come to grips with this situation very quickly. Do you have a problem with drugs or alcohol? Lying is the lifeblood of addiction. If we have no recourse to lies, our lives can unravel only so far without others noticing.

Telling the truth can also reveal ways in which we want to grow but haven’t.”
Sam Harris, Lying

“When there is confusion as who to select between the two individuals for the confidential work, it is apparently worth to put the confidence on a person who believes in Luck than one who doesn't.”
Anuj Somany

“Compromise where you can. Where you can't, don't. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye, and say 'No, you move'.”
Christopher Markus

Mark Waid
“You're not perfect. Sometimes, you can be a real jerk. Not on purpose. Just sometimes. But no matter what, you are a man of integrity. That is your defining characteristic. You can't see this, but it comes off you so strong that I have watched Avengers be intimidated by it. Be inspired by it. Your integrity carries a weight you can't imagine. It has meaning.”
Mark Waid, Daredevil by Mark Waid, Vol. 7

“Treat others like your life depends on it.. because it does.”
VaeEshia Ratcliff-Davis

“Legacy is more than leaving possessions behind. It's about investing in people with passion and integrity through leadership and love.”
Farshad Asl

“Some people are more interested in making good on a promise—rather than in doing what they promised.”
Clifford Cohen

Criss Jami
“On the whole the modern world has been conditioned to have a chip on its shoulder against devoutly religious people. I disagree with this in some instances - particularly in, believe it or not, matters of integrity. Deep down I often rather believe the man who honestly thinks he has an omnipotent Judge breathing down his neck, holding his every word and his every move accountable, than the man who much like his modern peers, and ironically enough, claims to bask in complete independence.”
Criss Jami

“People say the truth or lie or keep silent for the same reasons:
when they're afraid of the consequences,
when they'll be affected,
and when they don't care.”
Aniekee Tochukwu Ezekiel, Psychology of Friendship for Leadership

“Lies can't sell without an atom of truth.”
Aniekee Tochukwu Ezekiel, Psychology of Friendship for Leadership

John C. Maxwell
“Developing and maintaining integrity require constant attention. John Weston, chairman and CEO of Automatic Data Processing, Inc., says, “I`ve always tried to live with the following simple rule: Don`t do what you wouldn`t feel comfortable reading about in the newspapers the next day.” That`s a good standard all of us should keep.”
John C. Maxwell

“Great leaders are those who have faith, are trustworthy, and serve others with integrity.”
Farshad Asl

“The sun and the moon and the stars would have disappeared long ago . . . had they happened to be within the reach of predatory human hands.”
Henry Ellis

“Just because you say you will do something does not mean that you are also willing to do that thing. Ensuring that both things are true is especially important in the matter of either making or receiving a proposal of marriage.”
Clifford Cohen
