Integrity has no need of rules

JOHAN Jaaffar’s ‘We need integrity crusaders’ on March 20 is a timely reminder of the importance of integrity in the public, professional and private arenas.

A person with integrity works with the same honesty and good moral values in any environment.

Albert Camus’ quote “Integrity has no need of rules” underlines the notion that a person with integrity will behave rightly because it is right, rather than because it conforms to a standard of behaviour. An integrity crusader - whether in politics, government, business or social leaders such as teachers - sets an example for their organisation and society. As the saying goes, “if you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don’t have integrity, nothing else matters”.
