Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art...it has no survival value; rather, it is one of those things that give value to survival.
C.S. Lewis quotes
All existing things are really one. We regard those that are beautiful and rare as valuable, and those that are ugly as foul and rotten The foul and rotten may come to be transformed into what is rare and valuable, and the rare and valuable into what is foul and rotten. Therefore it is said that one vital energy pervades the world. Consequently, the sage values Oneness
Chuang Tzu quotes
Too many people today know the price of everything and the value of nothing.
Ann Landers quotes
The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get.
Jim Rohn quotes
The true value of a human being can be found in the degree to which he has attained liberation from the self.
Albert Einstein quotes
How much truth can a spirit bear, how much truth can a spirit dare? ... that became for me more and more the real measure of value.
Friedrich Nietzsche quotes
It is important that an aim never be defined in terms of activity or methods. It must always relate directly to how life is better for everyone. . . . The aim of the system must be clear to everyone in the system. The aim must include plans for the future. The aim is a value judgment.
W. Edwards Deming quotes
Not life, but good life, is to be chiefly valued.
Quality in a product or service is not what the supplier puts in. It is what the customer gets out and is willing to pay for. A product is not quality because it is hard to make and costs a lot of money, as manufacturers typically believe. This is incompetence. Customers pay only for what is of use to them and gives them value. Nothing else constitutes quality.
Peter F. Drucker quotes
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. quotes
