In Stratton’s Advice by Gary



Memorize and believe in the Jaycee Creed

We Believe:
That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;
That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;
That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;
That government should be of laws rather than of men;
That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality;
And that service to humanity is the best work of life.

I shall pass through this world but once,
If therefore there be any kindness I can show or any good thing I can do,
let me do it now.
Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

For the want of a nail the shoe was lost,
For want of a shoe, the horse was lost,
For want of a horse, the rider was lost,
For want of a rider, the battle was lost,
For want of a battle, the kingdom was lost,
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

From Poor Richard by Ben Franklin.

Quality is like buying oats.
If you want good, clean oats,
you must pay a fair price.
However, if you are satisfied
with oats that have already
been through the horse, well
they are a little cheaper.

From Salesman’s Desk

The way that you wander
is the way that you choose
The day that you tarry
is a day that you lose
Sunshine or thunder
a man will always wander
where the fair wind blows
