p. 239

„Let natural consequences teach responsible behavior.“

— Stephen R. Covey
Context: Let natural consequences teach responsible behavior. One of the kindest things we can do is to let the natural or logical consequences of people's actions teach them responsible behavior.

We care enough for their growth and security to suffer their displeasure. Ch. 11

„Give no answer to contentious arguments or irresponsible accusations.“

— Stephen R. Covey

„Different cultures may translate these principles into different practices and over time may even totally obscure these principles through the wrongful use of freedom. Nevertheless, they are present. Like the law of gravity, they operate constantly.“

„Are your values based upon principles?“

— Stephen R. Covey
Context: Values are social norms — they're personal, emotional, subjective, and arguable. All of us have values. Even criminals have values. The question you must ask yourself is, Are your values based upon principles? In the last analysis, principles are natural laws — they're impersonal, factual, objective and self-evident. Consequences are governed by principles and behavior is governed by values; therefore, value principles! p. 49
