Accountability Quotes

"Accountability breeds response-ability."

Stephen R. Covey


"It is not only what we do,

but also what we do not do,

for which we are accountable."



"Life is not accountable to us.

We are accountable to life."

Denis Waitley


"I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself."

Walter Anderson


"I am not bound to win

but I am bound to be true;

I am not bound to succeed

but am bound to live up

to what light I have."

Abraham Lincoln


“A person may cause evil to others not only by his actions but by his inaction, and in either case he is justly accountable to them for injury.”

John Stuart Mill

I love this one. One word or even a smile can have the overwhelming affect of saving someone's life. You never know if the person you come across is contemplating suicide and you are unknowingly their last hope. Look people directly into their eyes as if they matter, because they do! We're all the same, all of us!
