Inspiring Quotes: To Be Your Best & To Do Your Best

"Integrity is choosing courage over comfort. It's choosing what is right over what is fun, fast, or easy. It's choosing to practice your values rather than simply professing them."

"We are born into a single room. Our first door opens and we crawl through it, expanding our universe. For the rest of our lives, that is what happens. More doors open, but some doors close. Each new gate opens on some new room that we may inhabit for a while and move on again. At the end of our lives, we look back at all the rooms...All we can hope for is that the total home we construct will have integrity...we are builders of homes in the wilderness of time."

- Rabbi Lawrence Hoffman
