Cornerstones of Character
Honesty:  a facet of moral character that connotes positive and virtuous attributes such as integrity, truthfulness, straightforwardness, along with the absence of lying, cheating, deception; also involves being trustworthy, loyal, fair, and sincere. 
Honesty is straightforward conduct. Honesty is being sincere, truthful, trustworthy, honorable, fair, genuine, and loyal with integrity.* 
Integrity:  the practice of being honest and showing a consistent and uncompromising adherence to strong moral and ethical principles and values; regarded as the honesty and truthfulness of one's actions; having and using one's moral compass. 

Integrity means you can be trusted.  It has been said that integrity is doing the right thing even if nobody is watching.*

Respect: a positive feeling or action shown towards someone or something considered important or held in high esteem or regard; conveys a sense of admiration for valuable qualities.  

Respect is the basis for civility, for politeness, and for consideration toward others.*

Responsibility: the quality or state of being responsible; moral, legal, or mental accountability; dependability; something for which one is responsible; acting for the benefit of society. 

Responsibility is important for the simple fact that is makes us active participants in our actions, both to ourselves and to the community at large.*
