It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 3, Page 11, Book 13
There are so many men who can figure costs, and so few who can measure values.
relative worth, merit, or importance
We toss around the word value often enough. That has value. That's not valuable to me. Our values are the things that we believe are important in the way we live and work. They determine the priorities in our lives. What I value, may differ from what others value.
We all live by a code of values, whether we know it or not. Values are traits or qualities that we consider worthwhile. Values provide us with a strong foundation; a method for living life to it's fullest. Values can also help you in finding your purpose in life.
Those who value their individuality take responsibility, are self-reliant and act with self-respect. Those who value truthfulness cannot bring themselves to tell a lie. Those who value family or friendship sacrifice their personal interests for the good of others. Those who value goodness cannot bring themselves to do something they know is wrong.
Many of my values were passed on to me from others in my life. My parents, teachers, friends and relatives all took time to pass along what they valued in life and hopefully I'm passing that on to those in my life too. For me, the best way to live a worthy and meaningful life is to align your values with it!
Live for what you truly love, value and appreciate. Fill your life with what you do like, and there will be no room left for what you don’t like.
