This beautiful text was sent to me by its author, Arthur Dobrin, who has allowed me to republish it here. He has a blog.

Do no harm to the earth, for she is your mother.

Being is more important than having.

Never promote yourself at another’s expense.

Hold life sacred; treat it withreverence.

Allow each person the dignity of his or her labor.

Open your home to the wayfarer.

Listen to your deepest dreams.

Make restitution to those you have harmed.

Never think less of yourself than you are.

Never think that you are more than another.
