Character, in the long run, is the decisive factor in the life of an individual and of nations alike.
An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; a villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards.
Position does not make the man. It is the integrity of character, the spirit of Christ, that makes him thankful, unselfish, without partiality and without hypocrisy — it is this that is of value with God.
Behavior is the mirror in which everyone shows their image.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Your life is shaped by the end you live for. You are made in the image of what you desire.
Don't worry so much about your self-esteem. Worry more about your character. Integrity is its own reward.
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
The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
Romans 13:13, NKJV
