If a nation values anything more than freedom, it will lose its freedom; and the irony of it is that if it is comfort or money that it values more, it will lose that too .
Strive for integrity - that means knowing your values in life and behaving in a way that is consistent with these values.
Life's up and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals - Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want.
If we are to go forward, we must go back and rediscover those precious values -- that all reality hinges on moral foundations and that all reality has spiritual control.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
It is not our affluence, or our plumbing, or our clogged freeways that grip the imagination of others. Rather, it is the values upon which our system is built.
Se. J. William Fulbright
As you live your values, your sense of identity, integrity, control, and inner-directedness will infuse you with both exhilaration and peace. You will define yourself from within, rather than by people's opinions or by comparisons to others.
Stephen R. Covey
Values provide a framework for living. They make it possible to weigh options and make decisions you won't regret. When you make choices that are aligned with your values, you build your character and self-worth. When you compromise your values, you're living a lie. The stronger your values, the more stable and secure you'll be.
