A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on behavior, books, character, conscience, ethics, excellence, good, guidance, honesty, integrity, laws, life, mediocrity, and rules

The legal system doesn't always serve as a good guide for your conscience. You can step way over the ethical line and still be inside the law. The same thing goes for rules, policies and procedures - you know, the organization's "internal laws." You can "go by the book" and still behave unethically. Still not move beyond mediocrity. High standards-the ethics of excellence-come to life through your basic values, your character, integrity and honesty. Obeying the law is the bare minimum.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on agreement, behavior, certainty, day, ethics, honor, jobs, life, needs, rest, rules, songs, value, and war

"You, who are on the road, must have a code that you can live by-"* You'll find universal agreement on the value of a behavior code, on the need for some sort of ethical system. Even the crooks count on "honor among thieves," and countries actually wage war according to certain rules. On the job and in the rest of our day-to-day living, we each need a "code for the road." *Crosby, Stills & Nash in a hit song.

A Quote by Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde on life and rules

in

Lord Darlington (LD): I think life too complex a thing to be settled by these hard and fast rules. Lady Windemere (LW): If we had 'hard-and-fast rules' we would find life much simpler. LD: You allow of no exceptions? LW: None! LD: Ah, what a fascinating Puritan you are, LW. LW: The adjective was unnecessary, LD.

A Quote by Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler on destruction, force, hope, rules, and world

Fundamentally, the force that rules the world is conduct, whether it be moral or immoral. If it is moral, at least there may be hope for the world. If immoral, there is not only no hope, but no prospect of anything but destruction of all that has been accomplished during the last 5,000 years.

Nicholas Butler (1862 - 1947)
