What is integrity? Integrity is a good quality of being honest. It is a fine virtue for everyone. A man of integrity is loved by all. Without integrity, he will lose the best
Integrity is especially important for students. We should finish our homework independently. We must return books when it is due. We should listen to the teacher carefully no matter what kind of lesson it is. If we promise to do something, we should try our best to do it well.
When it comes to honesty, quite a lot of people believe it is essential to a person’s character and success.
They base their idea on the following reasons: on one hand, successful business owes much to mutual trust; on another hand, great people in history such as Abraham Lincoln and Genete Washington set us good examples of being honest, they are great because they are honest.
But some people think differently. They believe honesty is becoming out of date.
Their reasons run as following: to begin with, cheating on exams is becoming more and more popular; in addition, some singers and movie stars cheat on taxes; last but not the least, if you are not careful enough, you’ll buy some defective goods and fake products.
It is high time we emphasized and encouraged honesty. We can take effective measures to restore it.
For example, kids should be taught to tell truth, strict rules and regulations should be carried out to stop cheatings on exams and taxes, etc.
Almost all of us heard the story “Here Comes the Wolf” when we were little kids。 What we can learn from the story is that we must be honest。 However， there’re lots of phenomena of dishonesty nowadays。
Being dishonest does great harm not only to other people but also to yourself。 Take the case of fake milk powder for example。 After drinking this kind of milk， the babies had big heads while their legs and arms were still thin， which badly affected their health。 To our great relief， the producers got accused and punished for all the serious consequences in the end。
Having the reputation of being honest and reliable will make other people trust you， which will provide you many benefits and give you opportunities that others may not get。 Being honest， you will find it easier to cooperate with others and people will be friendly to you and support you。 In a sense， if life is a long journey， honesty will be the backpack that should be taken along all the way。 Let’s pick up our “backpack”—honesty， and start the wonderful journey!
It never be explained why so many students on campus cheat in their examinationsnowadays， regardless of the danger that teachers find their secret， as it did in the case ofthe boy student in the cartoon/photo above。 What is conveyed in the drawing is most thought-provoking and should arouse our social concern。
The implied meaning of the picture is worth discussing。 Firstly， the youngs alwaysbee quite illogical when they try to descide what can be done and what can not be done。
In the light of this statement， some students are often willing to sacrifice theircredibility for the privillage of getting more points and being regarded as outstandingstudents。 Furthermore， some one is afired that he can’t pass the final exams leading to hisdegree， in the fruit of being absorbed into puter games or disappointment in love。
Consequently， only by cheating can they graduate and get the degree on time。 Although manyreasons share the problem of this drawing， one of them can be singled out for recognition:the conditions of our sociaty。 Such is human nature， that we can’t avoid being influenced byenvironment。 In short， the root of cheating in examinations and credibilililess on campus isbinition of many factors。
There is no blinding at the fact that， in dealing with a challenge on such scale， somestrong， effective and necessary counter-measures should be put on our agenda。 To the beginwith， a widespread education campaign should be launched to make students realize theimportance of credibility。 What’s more， the government departments at different levels andrelated orgnizations should make joint efforts and coordination of programs to creat a morecredit environment for us。 Only by this package deal， can build up a harmonious and healthysociaty。
