The Value of Values - Swami Dayanada Saraswati
Excerpts from the books: " The expression of my life is just the expression of my well-assimilated value structure. What I do is but an expression of what is valuable to me. For comforts to be enjoyed I must be there to enjoy them. When I am split with guilt, I am rarely anywhere but with my anxieties, regrets and guilt. When I clearly see this fact, I will see the value of applying universal ethical standards to myself. Therefore, a value, universal or situational, is a value for me only when I see the value of the value as valuable to me. "
