‘Be friendly to all and a burden to no one.   Live holy before God;  before yourself, moderately; before your neighbors, honestly.  Let your life be modest and reserved, your manner courteous, your admonitions friendly, your forgiveness willing, your promises true, your speech wise, and share gladly the bounties you receive.’
