Integrity has no need of rules.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.

Fitzwater, P. B.
Clear conscience never fears midnight knocking.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]

They attack the one man with their hate and their shower of weapons. But he is like some rock which stretches into the vast sea and which, exposed to the fury of the winds and beaten against by the waves, endures all the violence
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
One can easily judge the character of a person by the way they treat people who can do nothing for them.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than what they think laughable.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.

Thoreau, Henry David
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.
Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.
