Who speaks out about ethics?

Aristotle = Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we an act but a habit.
President Theodore Roosevelt = To educate a person in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society.

Martin Luther King, Jr., Civil Rights Leader = Morality cannot be legislated, but behavior can be regulated. Judicial decrees may not change the heart, but they can restrain the heartless.

Douglas Carmichael, Chief Auditor of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) =
There's obviously a need for better training. We'll be able to tell if companies should be giving their people better training and if they're getting the basics right.
The Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of Treadway Organizations (COSO) =
T raining in the meaning and the application of the code of conduct is one means of alerting employees about fraud and enlisting their support as part of the company's system of internal control.
The National Commission on Fraudulent Financial Reporting (Treadway Commission) = Curricula should integrate the development of ethical values with the acquisition of knowledge and skills.

Lynn Sharp Paine, Harvard Business School = The CEO is certainly the chief ethics officer. But ultimately, you want everyone in the company  
Stuart C. Gilman, President of the nonprofit Ethics Resource Center in Washington, D.C. =
"Ethics training is perishable," Gilman says. "People forget." To deal with this problem, companies should schedule regular refresher courses for all employees.
William H. Donaldson, Chairman, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, 4/8/03 = Our budget ($716.4M) will enable us to meet the remaining fast-approaching deadlines of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, including the need for regular training.
