"Before you tell your life what truths and values you have decided to live up to, let your life tell you what truths you embody, what values you represent." - Parker Palmer "A value is a way of being or believing that you hold most important." - Brene Brown "They know what matters, but they don’t choose it...The hardest thing on earth is to choose what matters.” - Sue Monk Kidd “We hang on to our values, even if they seem at times tarnished and worn; even if, as a nation and in our own lives, we have betrayed them more often that we care to remember. What else is there to guide us?" - Barack Obama "The first principle of value that we need to rediscover is this: that all reality hinges on moral foundations. " - Martin Luther King "Our values and behaviors are incongruent, and this incongruence causes us a certain degree of moral discomfort. In order to alleviate this discomfort, we have three choices: we can change our values to match our behaviors, we can change our behaviors to match our values, or we can change our perception of our behaviors so that they appear to match our values." - Melanie Joy “Courage is not a virtue or value among other personal values like love or fidelity. It is the foundations that underlies and gives reality to all other virtue and personal values." - Rollo May “The values to which people cling most stubbornly under inappropriate conditions are those values that were previously the source of their greatest triumphs.” - Jared Diamond “It’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.” ― Roy Disney “Find people who share your values, and you’ll conquer the world together.” - John Ratzenberger “Ideology knows the answer before the question has been asked. Principles are something different: a set of values that have to be adapted to circumstances but not compromised away.” - George Packer "The key to the ability to change is a changeless sense of who you are, what you are about and what you value.” - Stephen Covey “In our life there is one side which is finite and another side which is infinite. I want you to think about both the sides and design the best life and stand in their true values.” - Amit Ray "But our inactions, like our actions, define who we are and what are true values are.” - Richard H. Eyster "The more choices you have, the more your values matter. ” - Michael Schrage
