Stephen Covey

Principles should not be confused with values. Principles describe how things are and how they work, whereas values state where we aim to go. If principles are the territory, then values are maps. Only when we value correct principles, do we have “a knowledge of things as they are.” Practices are helpful in formalizing how to do things, but whereas “practices are situationally specific, principles are deep, fundamental truths that have universal application.”
