1. Family values.
If there is love, there is hope to have real families, real brotherhood, real equanimity and real peace. If the love within your mind is lost... no matter how much material progress is made, only suffering and confusion will ensue. The XIV Dalai Lama When you love a member of your family or a compatriot, let it be with a ray of the Infinite Love! Let it be in God, and for God!

Although the phrase is vague and has shifting meanings, it is most often associated with social and religious conservatives.

Personal values are our core beliefs, values, and philosophies that we hold about life, its purpose, and our own purpose. As we grow up, we take on board the personal values of others around us until we reach the teen years and start to accept or reject such values as being a part of who we are, or not a part of our own selves.
