Commit to a life of integrity, and you will consider yourself successful, regardless of whether you achieve career and financial goals, as long as you stay true to yourself and your ideals.
Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.
You recognize that success is determined by the quality of your relationships—with friends and family, with colleagues, with yourself, with God, with the world at large, and, through your words and deeds, even with people you will never personally meet.
He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men, and the love of little children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had; whose life was an inspiration; whose memory is a benediction.
Bessie Anderson Stanley
Commit to living a life of complete integrity, and the universe will test your resolve by presenting you with a series of ethical dilemmas.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
View these challenges as required courses for your master’s degree in integrity from the College of Divine Knowledge. Dropping out is not an option.
If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don’t have integrity, nothing else matters.
Staying true to who you are may occasionally weigh heavily upon your shoulders, but rest assured that your integrity will be a most cherished companion in the winter of your life.
If a man can reach the latter days of his life with his soul intact, he has mastered life.
