"Principles, once internalized, lead to something. They prompt activity, impel motion, direct choices. A principled person always has a place to stand, knows where he or she is coming from and likely to end up. Principles always lead the person who possesses them somewhere, for some purpose, to do something, or choose not to. Neither principles nor values lead anywhere if they remain abstract, embalmed in print, or are not internalized by human persons. If they are to be taught, the principles need a human face; they must be conveyed in words and images that move the heart."
