„Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.“

— Stephen R. Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change
p. 239

„Principles are universal — that is, they transcend culture and geography. They're also timeless, they never change“

— Stephen R. Covey
Context: Principles are universal — that is, they transcend culture and geography. They're also timeless, they never change — principles such as fairness, kindness, respect, honesty, integrity, service, contribution. 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. p. 47

„It's not enough to have values without vision; you want to be good, but you want to be good for something. On the other hand, vision without values can create a Hitler.“

— Stephen R. Covey
Context: It's not enough to have values without vision; you want to be good, but you want to be good for something. On the other hand, vision without values can create a Hitler. An empowering mission statement deals with both character and competence; what you want to be and what you want to do in your life. p. 113

„Values are social norms — they're personal, emotional, subjective, and arguable. All of us have values. Even criminals have values.“

— 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

„We present a dramatically different approach to time management. This is a principle-centered approach.“

— Stephen R. Covey
Context: We present a dramatically different approach to time management. This is a principle-centered approach. It transcends the traditional prescriptions of faster, harder, smarter, and more. Rather than offering you another clock, this approach provides you with a compass — because more important than how fast you're going, is where you're headed. p. 12 <!-- Originally added as : Instead of taking two watches, take compass. It is not important how fast you are moving, but where you are moving. -->

„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. They may not like it or us, but popularity is a fickle standard by which to measure character development. Insisting on justice demands more true love, not less. We care enough for their growth and security to suffer their displeasure. Ch. 11

„Selfless service has always been one of the most powerful methods of influence.“

— Stephen R. Covey
Context: Perform anonymous service. Whenever we do good for others anonymously, our sense of intrinsic worth and self-respect increases. … Selfless service has always been one of the most powerful methods of influence. Ch. 11

„Consequences are governed by principles and behavior is governed by values; therefore, value principles!“

Consequences are governed by principles and behavior is governed by values; therefore, value principles! p. 49

„Trust is the glue that holds everything together.“

— Stephen R. Covey
Context: Trust is the glue that holds everything together. It creates the environment in which all of the other elements — win-win stewardship agreements, self-directing individuals and teams, aligned structures and systems, and accountability — can flourish. p. 243 <!-- Originally added as a paraphrase : The moment of making choice is the moment of truth! -->

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

— Stephen R. Covey
Context: Give no answer to contentious arguments or irresponsible accusations. Let such things "fly out open windows" until they spend themselves. Ch. 11
