Commit to a life of integrity, and you are not deterred from doing what is right even if the outcome may be personally detrimental.
‘Tis better to suffer wrong than do it.
Integrity begets bravery. When Lewis Morris was warned that the British Army was within cannon shot of his estate and that signing the Declaration of Independence would almost certainly lead to his financial ruin, he shouted, “Damn the consequences, give me the pen.”
Cowardice asks the question: “Is it safe?” Expediency asks the question: “Is it politic?” Vanity asks the question: “Is it popular?” But conscience asks the question: “Is it right?” And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one what is right.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
If you inadvertently create conflict or chaos, you immediately accept responsibility and do what you must to set things right.
Honor isn’t about making the right choices. It’s about dealing with the consequences.
You trust that as long as you conduct yourself honorably, the road you find yourself on will always be pointing north.
The superior man thinks always of virtue; the common man thinks of comfort.
