Integrity Quote of the Day

Lech Walesa

Nobel Prize for Peace

The education, the background that I had, the straightforward principles that I referred to, based on rules and values -- which is the truth, honesty, decent behavior, decency -- all this really gave me a lot of support around people, among the working people. It was a little bit more difficult to find some understanding among the powerful people, the hierarchy because I would often criticize them. I would point out things that they did wrong or that didn't function well. So, the point was that I got some support and some stimulus from the low levels, whereas I wouldn't get the criticism from the top levels of the people.
