The Code of Chivalry

i dont know if i posted this already. perhaps i did a year or so ago. but since i feel i need a bit of a refresher, im posting it again. sometimes i get caught up in the way people just ARE and i forget who i strive to be. this is who i strive to be.

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.
