Values

Famous quotes containing the word values:

    [University students] hated the hypocrisy of adult society, the rigidity of its political institutions, the impersonality of its bureaucracies. They sought to create a society that places human values before materialistic ones, that has a little less head and a little more heart, that is dominated by self-interest and loves its neighbor more. And they were persuaded that group protest of a militant nature would advance those goals.
    Muriel Beadle (b. 1915)

    The traveller who has gone to Italy to study the tactile values of Giotto, or the corruption of the Papacy, may return remembering nothing but the blue sky and the men and women who live under it.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    The return to solid values is always hard.... Distress, panic, and hard times have marked our pathway in returning to solid values.
    James A. Garfield (1831–1881)
