Integrity is a very powerful word as all character is based on integrity– being true to yourself and others. What does respect or kindness mean if it’s based on insincerity? Integrity is the congruence between how we act and who we really are. What an important word to teach and model to our children!

“Character is much easier kept than recovered.” –Thomas Paine

If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don’t have integrity, nothing else matters.” – Alan Simpson
