Life’s principles.

It was copied from a book.

• Do not do to others what you would not want them to do to you.

• In all things, strive to cause no harm.

• Treat your fellow human beings, your fellow living things, and the world in general with love, honesty, faithfulness, and respect.

• Do not overlook evil or shrink from administering justice, but always be ready to forgive wrongdoing freely admitted and honestly regretted.

• Live life with a sense of joy and wonder.

• Always seek to be learning something new.

• Test all things; always check your ideas against the facts, and be ready to discard even a cherished belief if it does not conform to them.

• Never seek to censor or cut yourself off from dissent; always respect the right of others to disagree with you.

• Form independent opinions on the basis of your own reason and experience; do not allow yourself to be led blindly by others.

• Question everything.

• Enjoy your own sex life (so long as it damages nobody else) and leave others to enjoy theirs in private whatever their inclinations, which are none of your business.

• Do not discriminate or oppress on the basis of sex, race or (as far as possible) species.

• Do not indoctrinate your children. Teach them how to think for themselves, how to evaluate evidence, and how to disagree with you.

• Value the future on a timescale longer than your own.
