this is actually the code i try to live by. i think the world would be a better place if everyone tried to be more chivalrous. but i seriously doubt THAT is going to happen. It isnt always easy to follow this code, especially when it comes to bonding with other females (they do love to gossip). But i feel very strongly that that sort of thing is wrong, and try hard not to indulge in that behavior. Treat others as you would like to be treated..
This code is one of the reasons i am mostly misunderstood by alot of people. and why i simply do not get WHY some people act the way they do.
Laws to Live by.. the code of chivalry
This above all...to thine own self be true...
A Knights word must have the validity of a signed and witness oath. Thus, give thy word sparingly, but adhere to it like iron.
Refrain from speaking ill of others, for not all truths of the matter may be known.
Pass not unverified words about another, for hearsay is, in a large part, a thing of falsehoods.
Be thou honest with others, and have them known that honesty is likewise expected of them.
The fury of the moment plays folly with the truth; to keep one's head is a virtue.
Contemplate always the consequences of thine acts upon others. Strive not to harm.
Other Realms may well have diverse news on love between members and with others. When a Realm is visited or joined, one should discern quietly their practices, and abide thereby.
Dignity, a gracious manner, and a good humor are much to be admired.
As a Knight, thou haste power, and thy powers wax strongly as wisdom increases. Therefore exercise discretion in the use thereof.
Courage and honor endure forever. Their echoes remain when the mountains have crumbled to dust.
Pledge friendship and fealty to those who so warrant. Strengthen others of the Brethren and they shall strengthen thee.
Those who follow the Truth should be above reproach in the eyes of the world.
hard rules to live by. but in doing so one can acheive honor and self respect.
