.....the personal commitment to Integrity means: Speaking the honest truth at all times, even though it might hurt the listener, and create conflicts for you personally. It also means never to settle for anything less than what you deserve in your relationships with others. Living with Integrity is not easy, because she demands your total commitment to your personal values that must be higher than ordinary. She also expects you to make choices based on what you believe, and not what others tell you to believe. All being said, living with Integrity even for a day is million times better than countless years of life without her. A life with Integrity is the only life well lived, in my view. So go ahead, take that bold step, and live the life with Integrity.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

A "Bandwagon Effect" is a most common phenomenon wherein the rate of uptake of any beliefs and misbeliefs increases the more that those have already been adopted by others in the society. Shallow people will get carried away by what others do, and will always hop on the bandwagon. You mustn't get swayed by what others do or tell you to do, and mustn't jump on the bandwagon. You must stand with your own values, confidently, and without fluttering, even though you have to stand alone - because you are the Gold, and the Gold must maintain her Color, Character and Charisma that set the highest standards for others.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Cultural Values Determine Behavior

Tom Zegan

I am convinced that attitude is the key to success or failure in almost any of life's endeavors. Your attitude--your perspective, your outlook, how you feel about yourself, how you feel about other people--determines your priorities, your actions, your values. Your attitude determines how you interact with other people and how you interact with yourself.

Caroline Warner

Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Our whole life is an attempt to discover when our spontaneity is whimsical, sentimental irresponsiblity and when it is a valid expression of our deepest desires and values.

Helen Merrell Lynd

We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Whether you want to be a Thermometer or a Thermostat is really up to you. You see, a Thermometer simply reflects the temperature of its environment, always quickly adjusting to the situation; while a Thermostat goes one step above and beyond to make a positve change in the temperature of its environment. You can always opt to "go with the flow" to follow what others and society norms dictate to you, or you can stand firm with your values to bring about a differentiating change in the world that would make it a better place than ever before. Be the Change Ambassador, and importantly, be the Change that you want to see in the world. In my view, one should strive to become a Thermostat rather than a Thermometer, because the world needs more Thermostats.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.

Mahatma Gandhi

The aim of education is the knowledge not of fact, but of values.

William Ralph Inge

Contrary to popular belief, transformation cannot be based on a single event, advice, book, or seminar. These things may lead to a new insight or even a temporary change, however, real transformation requires the formation of new thinking patterns and behavioral habits. Transformation requires consistent action and time to reinforce new learned values and drop old ones. Once the process of transformation is completed, it will change who you are, your life and the lives of the people around you.

Med Jones

The secret of a good life is to have the right loyalties and to hold them in the right scale of values.

Norman Thomas

A civilized man is one who will give a serious answer to a serious question. Civilization itself is a certain sane balance of values.

Ezra Pound

A family is a family not because of gender but because of values, like commitment, trust and love.

Gray Davis

A moment's thought shows that man's feeling of isolation has no foundation, biologically or sociologically. We grow out of the Universe, we are an expression of it. The iron in our blood comes from the high temperature fusion of stars. We constantly interact with our environment. The force of gravity keeps our feet upon the earth and has a vital effect upon our metabolism. The air we breathe comes form the seas and the leaves, and the sun allows the process to take place. Society gives us all that makes us human our culture, our symbols, our concepts and our values. Without society, the notion of the individual would have no meaning.

Paul Ingram

A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.

Dwight D Eisenhower

Age, health, and stage in life have nothing to do with serving or not serving. In each season of life there are attributes and qualities of life and experience that God values in service.

Bruce Kemper

All fine architectural values are human vales, else not valuable.

Frank Lloyd Wright

All of childhood's unanswered questions must finally be passed back to the town and answered there. Heroes and bogey men, values and dislikes, are first encountered and labeled in that early environment. In later years they change faces, places and maybe races, tactics, intensities and goals, but beneath those penetrable masks they wear forever the stocking-capped faces of childhood.

Maya Angelou

All sciences are now under the obligation to prepare the ground for the future task of the philosopher, which is to solve the problem of value, to determine the true hierarchy of values.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Although a system may cease to exist in the legal sense or as a structure of power, its values (or anti-values), its philosophy, its teachings remain in us. They rule our thinking, our conduct, our attitude to others. The situation is a demonic paradox: we have toppled the system but we still carry its genes.

Ryszard Kapuściński

America now is stumbling through the darkness of hatred and divisiveness. Our values, our principles, and our determination to succeed as a free and democratic people will give us a torch to light the way. And we will survive and become the strongernot only because of a patriotism that stands for love of country, but a patriotism that stands for love of people.

Gerald Ford

As long as I stay with my values, something valuable happens.

Kevin Sparks Janeway

Culture is the name for what people are interested in, their thoughts, their models, the books they read and the speeches they hear, their table-talk, gossip, controversies, historical sense and scientific training, the values they appreciate, the quality of life they admire. All communities have a culture. It is the climate of their civilization.

Walter Lippmann
