Integrity, don't leave home without it!2

A quality that many, if not all, say they have, but few actually do.  It's hard to do what you perceive as the "right thing" when everyone else around you would rather take the easy way out, and even harder to do it all the time.  Sometimes it alienates you from your peers. But, if it's any consolation, they didn't make good friends anyway if they don't appreciate that you did the right thing.2

The more you scream about how much of this you possess the less likely you are to actually have it. . .2

Integrity is also being faithful and keeping your word, and just being plain honest and respectable. This is a possession that people are having less of these days. I would have said that love is the greatest possession but love is cheap without integrity. Our world would be a better place if people had integrity because people would keep their word, they wouldn't do stupid things in public.3

Common Sense author Thomas Paine once said, Character is much easier kept than recovered. That is a statement that I wholly agree with. Sometimes, naturally, temptation can be powerful to resist, but the more tempting it is, the more satisfying it is when you finally exclaim, No thanks. and walk away with the smile of victory.6

There may come a time in your life (as has happened once in mine) when the only thing you have left to give is your word. 5

At least for me, this is indeed a prized possession. From a really early age I was taught that to lie, cheat, steal, be decietful, etc., was wrong. It was what I believed (and still believe) was an Old World code of ethics. I can't begin to estimate the number of times I've said No to propositions or ideas I thought were wrong, and have suffered the consequences. I don't regret my decisions at all. I think I'd better start to take another tack here, before I start to sound like I'm pontificating and totally egocentric and self-laudatory. Anyway, part of the way I feel about integrity is also attributable to what numbah said in his post, i.e., that it's the cornerstone of jarhead philosophy. Not that I was a jarhead, but the army is (or was) pretty much the same in its philosophy, i.e., you gotta be honest with your fellow soldiers or officers. That said, there were plenty of times that I ran across dishonesty and lack of integrity in the service (that goes back to my earlier comment about saying no at times (to superiors), and having to suffer the consequences). I got more wound up over this post than I had intended, but it's something I really do feel strongly about.5

This one is an adage. However, the concept of integrity is, unfortunately, subjective in some people's minds. Offer money and integrity on a table, and for some, the former will be choosen. Sometimes we forget what integrity is all about. 1

No one can steal your integrity and just because someone may tell you that your integrity is lost as someone said me on RIA (LOL), you must realize that this is simply his or her opinion. Definition: 1) Steadfast adherence to a strict moral or ethical code. 2) The state of being unimpaired; soundness. 3) The quality or condition of being whole or undivided; completeness. Integrity is a prize and no one knows your heart but you, no one knows your intent with a particular action but you. Who can restore integrity? You can and if you have indeed offended someone then go to that person; apologize and if they reject you then there is nothing more that you can do. Leave it in God's hands and let it go. 6

My problem with this item, as with many of the others on this list, is that they're presented as being universal truths... something that holds true for everyone. In fact, they aren't. Some of them are very subjective. Some people might consider love as their most highly prized possession.. or honor.. or faith.. or something else. We all have our own truths which depend very much on who we are, how we live, and where we come from etc. There's no one answer.3
