My word is my bond.

"My word is my bond" was a phrase I often came across when working in The City years ago. Rarely heard today. Strange how one can be reminded of such values in unexpected situations. Was watching a DVD of a 1960's western "The Professionals" recently, and heard this piece of dialogue:

Rico ( Lee Marvin) - "We gave our word to bring the woman back."
Dolworth (Burt Lancaster) - "My word to Grant is not worth a plug nickel."
Rico ( Lee Marvin ) - "You gave your word to me..."

Any other interesting bits of dialogue/quotes about integrity that come to mind to add interest and authenticity to presentations and speeches?
