Example of Values

The word 'values' itself has only one meaning, but multiple frames of reference:

Numeric values
Moral and ethical values
Personal values
Monetary values
Spiritual values

Values are literally measures. A value, by definition, is a quantification. Depending on the context of the use of the word, values may be expressed in either positive or negative terms. Metaphorically, the use of the word values when referring to a person related to that person's ethical or moral condition.

Examples of Values:

It's not a question of spiritual values - I just want to buy these shoes.
So your system of values allows you to be a bigamist, but not a hypocrite?
