“Even the most rational approach to ethics is defenseless if there isn’t the will to do what is right.”- Alexander Solzhenitsyn

“Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.”- Spencer Johnson

“Individuals are responsible for their own integrity. They will be influenced by many people and events but, in the end, their integrity quotient is of their own making. People are responsible for establishing their own standards, and their choices determine the kind of person they will be.”- Admiral Arleigh A. Burke
