„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.“

—  Stephen R. Covey, buch The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness

The 8th Habit : From Effectiveness to Greatness‎ (2004)
Kontext: 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

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

—  Stephen R. Covey, buch First Things First

Quelle: First Things First (1994), 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. -->
Kontext: 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.

„Retire from your job but never from meaningful projects.“

—  Stephen R. Covey, buch The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness

The 8th Habit : From Effectiveness to Greatness‎ (2004)
Kontext: Retire from your job but never from meaningful projects. If you want to live a long life, you need eustress, that is, a deep sense of meaning and contribution to worthy projects and causes, particularly your intergenerational family.

The 8th Habit : From Effectiveness to Greatness‎ (2004), p. 63

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

—  Stephen R. Covey

Quelle: Principle-Centered Leadership (1992), Ch. 11
Kontext: Give no answer to contentious arguments or irresponsible accusations. Let such things "fly out open windows" until they spend themselves.

„Are your values based upon principles?“

—  Stephen R. Covey, buch The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness

Quelle: The 8th Habit : From Effectiveness to Greatness‎ (2004), p. 49
Kontext: 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!

„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, buch First Things First

Quelle: First Things First (1994), p. 113
Kontext: 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.

„No gardener, no garden!“

—  Stephen R. Covey, buch First Things First

First Things First (1994), Disputed

„Trust is the glue that holds everything together.“

—  Stephen R. Covey, buch First Things First

Quelle: First Things First (1994), p. 243 <!-- Originally added as a paraphrase : The moment of making choice is the moment of truth! -->
Kontext: 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.
