Values

We all have them.  Our core values are fundamental beliefs which govern our attitudes, behaviors and actions.

Values have broad cultural variations.  For example – attitudes about life and death, desirable versus undesirable behaviors, honesty versus dishonesty, youth versus elderly, gender differences and biases.  Values arise from both cognitive and emotional functions of the human psyche.

Philosophical ethics and an active spiritual belief system help us define who we are and achieve our life’s goals.

“All life demands struggle.  Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life.  The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.”

~Pope Paul VI

“If you look at great human civilizations, from the Roman Empire to the Soviet Union, you will see that most do not fail simply due to external threats but because of internal weakness, corruption, or a failure to manifest the values and ideals they espouse.”

~Cory Booker
