Letter "V" » Values
«When we talk about values, I think of rationality in solving problems. That?s something I value. Fairness, kindness, generosity, tolerance. When they talk about values, they?re talking about things like going to church, voting for Bush, being loyal to Jesus, praying. These are not values.»
«The time we enjoy wasting is usually a good indicator of our real values? The best things in life feel like we feel when we waste our time!»
«Aldo Leopold, the early 20th century's Henry David Thoreau, said that we should think like a mountain, with a sense of permanence and a long view. At the beginning of the 21st century, we are at a peak of human power, wealth and information... We need to look back at our wonderful natural and human heritage, and cherish and protect the abundant values to be found there. We need to look out to the sides and see other parts of the world that need our help and can provide good ideas to go forward... We need to look ahead to be certain that our actions of today will make the world a better and richer and more varied place for our grandchildren and their grandchildren.»
«Values are not just words, values are what we live by. They're about the causes that we champion and the people we fight for.»
«And it is time for those who talk about family values to start valuing families.»
«Every man, at the bottom of his heart, wants to do right. But only he can do right who knows right; only he knows right who thinks right; only he thinks right who believes right.»
«Great men have not been concerned with fame. The joy of achievement that comes from finding something new in the universe is by far their greatest joy.»
«We believe that what matters most is not narrow appeals masquerading as values, but the shared values that show the true face of America; not narrow values that divide us, but the shared values that unite us: family, faith, hard work, opportunity and responsibility for all, so that every child, every adult, every parent, every worker in America has an equal shot at living up to their God-given potential. That is the American dream and the American value.»
«Just to make certain that I wasn't missing anything, as we see a lot of people running around talking about the basis for all these values, I went back and reread the New Testament the other day, from one side to the other, and make certain that I hadn't missed anything. You know what? In the three years of Jesus Christ's mission, of his ministry, there is no mention whatsoever ? or even a hint ? that you ought to be taking health care or educational opportunity away from children in order to give to the richest people in the world. None whatsoever.»
