On Ethics...

"Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do."

Potter Stewart

Former Associate Justice of the Supreme Court

"Personal leadership is the process of keeping your vision and values before you and aligning your life to be congruent with them."

Steven Covey
