INTEGRITY

Do to the right thing even when no one is watching.

When you reflect on the scene from the movie “42” Branch Rickey fought to integrate baseball despite what others thought. “A black man in baseball.”  He knew that what people would not take kindly to African Americans and whites playing on the same field.  Ricky asked Jackie Robinson to control his temper and to show integrity despite what he might face.

VALUE QUOTES

“the greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.”

“if you can maintain integrity in whatever you do, you can't go wrong…”

Bob Marley’s quote defines the greatness of a person through his/her integrity and their ability to help others.  In the clip, Branch Rickey’s integrity is shown as he encourages Robinson to help integrate the game of baseball.

 

The quote by George Foreman points out that by showing integrity and staying the course, Branch Rickey and Jackie Robinson’s action would prevail.
