Sacha Achar (Keeping good moral character)
Sikh Missionary Society: Sikhism: Principles: Keeping good moral character

Guru Nanak Dev says,

"Truth is the highest of all, but higher still is the truthful living."
Sachon oarai sab ko ooper sach achar.
schu ErY sBu ko aupir scu Awcwru ]
Sach Karni Sach Ta Ki Reht.
The Sikhs must keep good moral character as a part of daily life, may they be in war or peace. They should not be adulterer. They should not have sinful eye on beauty or wealth of any other’s wife, sister or mother. They must stay away from vices like lust, anger, greed, attachment and ego by leading a virtuous and pious life. 

Guru Nanak Dev says,

“Make thy mind the ploughman, good deed the farming, modesty the water and your  body the field. Let God’s Name be your seed, contentment the earth crusher and garb of humility your fence of the farm.”

Guru Nanak says,
"Make compassion the cotton, contentment the thread, continence the knot and truth the twist. This is the sacred thread of the soul  and if you have it, O Brahman, then put it on me.”

Guru Nanak Dev Ji says,
“The first is truthfulness, second the honest earning and third charity in God’s name. The fourth is pure intent and mind, and the  fifth the Lord’s admiration and praise.”
