The boy looked at the girl, tears in his eyes.
“Why can’t you be with me, I don’t understand.”
“YOU, are with someone else. Sorry that I have integrity,” she said as a tear trickled from her face onto her worn out sneaker.

Princeton. Being true and honest and keeping nothing back, hiding nothing. Ironically, The Double, by Dostoevsky. Being who you claim to be.

Integrity is something that everyone should strive to achieve in their life. If you live your life with integrity you are giving others the opportunity to trust you which will intern allow you to form close relationships that should last for a long time. It is hard to live a life with true integrity and there are very few who can do so. Thomas More had great integrity.

Structural integrity was all that came to mind when she thought of the word. She may have lost integrity in every other sense- self-respect and so on- in sleeping with him, but she had not lost whatever it was that fundamentally held her together; she would not fall apart because of him again.

Integrity means being honest and having a high moral stature. Yes, I just looked that up. In a world without integrity, life would kind of be meaningless. What would you do if everyone lied and didn’t care? I know I hate liars, all liars. If you can lie about a little thing you can lie about a big thing.

Integrity is a very complicated word. As a matter of fact, I’m not entirely sure of its definition, and I have no time to Google it. Sounds pathetic, I know. But I am not very knowledgeable in the ways of big words. Therefore I cannot produce a sensible sentence for this word.

integrity is cool cause i dont have it. If I had it, I’d probably be a better person and be like everyone else who seem to float through life effortless. But notme, no sir’ee. But, seriously, do I really need integrity? Only someone with no integrity would ask that, probably. Once I can sail through life in a bad way like I am now, why change to in

Integrity is one of the most important attributes to posses. If you have no integrity, you have nothing. You mind as well go curl up into a corner and starve to death.

I couldn’t just do this, I couldn’t just give up everything. I wasn’t exaggerating, because she was my everything. I was letting her go. I was in the process of letting her go. I couldn’t. I still had my dignity didn’t I? My morals, my integrity? Why was I letting my pride get in the way? I wanted her, but I felt like I couldn’t have her. I stood up and ran out the door before she came back.

prestigious connotations, but most definitely a trait that can be acquired by an individual, and if acquired–so admirable.

Something shouted from top of your lungs; something shouted at the top of that hill on that foggy day, your words turning to mush, dissipating in the cold gray wetness of a young evening. You were honest, but not enough and too late. Integrity means nothing when the damage has been done and what you look for has already left.
I thought you were stronger.
By Parka URL on 04.08.2011
You never had any sense of it.
Grit your teeth and clench your fists
so hard that your nails dig into your palms
and break the skin. Forceful. Lose it.
By Rae ovMoonlight URL on 04.08.2011
integrity is all about being a man of your word. If you have integrity, you will always do the things that you commit yourself to and you will be a person that people can trust. Do the things you say and people will consider you a man of integrity.

Honesty. Mrs. Smith is crap. I’m never honest to her. Hahahahahahahahaha. Glozell is honest. She’s a good Christian girl!

She thought the word
in capital letters
all points and corners and sharp edges
which didn’t reside in her heart
pinned her feet
to the ground

“It’s integrity is what it is,” he tells me again, angry and hot-eyed over the rim of his coffee cup.
“I know,” I murmur, trying to be soothing. I wish he’d stop talking about it and we could just go back to the days when I would run into him on his morning run and we would stop and talk.
By Sophie Calhoun on 04.08.2011
easier to maintain than regain
it’s something that is within but viewed from outside
there’s really no truth to it
i don’t think i have it
it’s not that big of a deal
people pretend they have it
i guess it’s important
makes people feel better

integrity is not writing beyond the time limit given by oneword.com.
integrity is the trust you build with your significant other.
integrity is leading your parents to believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that you will be completely honest with them, even if that means they will think less of you.
integrity living beyond society’s expectations of honesty.
integrity is taking responsibility.

Integrity, what are you ? where are you? Im not insipired, whisper to me what integrity is. Whisper me to the ground. Make me one. Are you a part of me?Tell me if you left me behind or do your remain. Does it exist around or is it on fire? I am you, you are me. What you have i Have, what you lack I lack. I am yours till the end.
By Regina URL on 04.08.2011
who tells you what integrity it? define it by showing it, feel it, know it, own it. It is who you are, if you don’t have integrity what do you have?

Sweat struggles to swim out of my nervous pores. I stand. I face the teacher and cry, “He’s cheating.” An army of eyes target me. I am the new enemy. But bring on the challenge… at least I have a healthy sense of honesty, of integrity.
By Meghan URL on 04.08.2011
integrity is something that is essential in everybodys life. to live without integrity is to have lost something really important in being a good human. sometimes, it really is about intention, and doing things with integrity shows that you care not only about the outcome, but about how you got there in the first place.

i find myself wondering about this very thing on a regular basis. how about you. have you ever wounder about how you stak up? You should.

Integrity is the one thing I look for in a man. If he is faithful to himself and his values, than I can trust that he will treat me with respect and dignity. That is all I need to know.

honor. dignity. fancy word. trust dependability, standing for something. trustworthiness. my grandpa has integrity.
By sen Lee on 04.08.2011
Sadly I don’t even know what integrity is. I’m in high school and I don’t know what integrity means. I know I should, and I mean, like, I’ve heard of it before… doesn’t it mean, like, showing power or something… that you’re higher power than someone else? I think that’s what it means, but I’m probably wrong.

The quality that makes you feel responsible for your own actions. You take pride in what you do and strive to life honorably. People with integrity make great workers because they are very conscious about the work they do.

The integrity of the beam seemed questionable, but he took a step onto it nevertheless. He balanced each move forward with the skill of a tightrope artist, flawlessly navigating it’s narrow width. As he reached the end, he exhaled, then drew a long pull from his cigarette. Heights never were his thing.
By Lotus Bloom URL on 04.08.2011
Integrity is becoming a lost word.
People push their morals aside in hopes of acceptance.
They never stand up for what they believe in.
I’m slowly losing faith in my fellow humans.

The man steps down from the podium and into the next room where he takes off his mask. He peels off his suit and stands butt naked in front of the mirror smiling to himself, foolish people, gullible people, the thinks to himself, I am really the wolf in sheep’s clothing, the devil in disguise, the angel in black.

Everyone needs it. I wish I had more. it’s important for good values. I feel that I have none sometimes but i want integrity. It makes people less dumb if only it came before lust in peoples minds.
By Molly URL on 04.08.2011
Integrity is a virtue that many think they possess, but relatively few actually do, I suspect. It is easy to talk about it in the abstract, but application in the real world, where there are a multitude of grays rather than merely black and white, is a different matter completely.
By lil_nail URL on 04.08.2011
Fight with integrity. Life is filled with battles and everything can cause you pain. But don’t lose yourself while fighting. Stick to your values, follow your morals, and never ever forget your integrity.
