My conscientious self,
Consider duty as sacred as religion.
Use tact on all occasions.
Place people rightly in your estimation.
Be no more to anyone than you are expected to be.
Have regard for the feeling of every soul.
Do not challenge anyone who is not your equal.
Do not make a show of your generosity.
Do not ask a favour of those who will not grant it to you.
Meet your shortcomings with a sword of self-respect.
Let not your spirit be humbled in adversity.
