"My doctor say that I have a malformed public-duty gland and a natural deficiency of moral fibre and that I am therefore excused from savinguUniverses."
- Slartibartfast, Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Integrity is the quality of wanting to do the right thing- and doing it. Even when- especially when no one is looking and no one will find out. One who does the right thing only when the spotlight is on them cannot claim integrity. Without integrity, we could trust no one. We would have no families, no communities, no one to turn to in time of difficulty or crisis. Without integrity, we would never be able to leave our houses safely; life would be lived moment to moment worrying about defending ourselves from crime.

Integrity, however is not doing what’s right simply to avoid punishment, it’s doing what’s right because it’s right, even if it may result in punishment.
