INTEGRITY

INTEGRITY

Integrity is standing up for what you believe in.

It is treating everyone equally and fairly, acting independent of others that do otherwise.

It is being open and honest, responsible for all of your actions.

It is speaking out when others are treated poorly.

It is refusing to participate in actions detrimental to others.

It is admitting and apologising for your errors, when mistakes are made.

It is respecting your environment, your fellow humans, and your self.

Integrity is not a characteristic, it is a way of life.

It is what you do, and what you say, always.

It sets you apart from others, it defines you as a person.

Treat others as you would want to be treated.

Be upstanding, be forthright, be conscious of your actions.

Remember to always act with integrity.

Let It Be Forgotten

WINTER FIRE

“Let It Be Forgotten”

by Sarah Teasdale

Let it be forgotten, as a flower is forgotten,
   Forgotten as a fire that once was singing gold,
Let it be forgotten for ever and ever,
   Time is a kind friend, he will make us old.
  
If anyone asks, say it was forgotten
   Long and long ago,
As a flower, as a fire, as a hushed footfall
   In a long forgotten snow.

 

Sara Trevor Teasdale was born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1884. She is the author of Love Songs (The Macmillan Company, 1917), winner of the Columbia University Poetry Society Prize (which later became the Pulitzer Prize for poetry) and the Poetry Society of America Prize. She died in 1933.
