I live for life.
I live life to experience the joys,
life around me,
rejoicing in raising my voice in harmony to the wind, the water, the sun, the earth.
I live to laugh,
to help others laugh, live.
I live for myself,
for my friends,
I live for strangers,
to smile and offer a hand when they need it.
I live to see things grow around me.
To smell the flowers.
To listen to the wind in the trees.
This is why I live.
In Life's Name, And For Life's Sake, I Say That I Will Use The Art For Nothing But The Service Of That Life. I Will Guard Growth And Ease Pain. I Will Fight To Preserve What Grows And Lives Well In Its Own Way; And I Will Change No Object Or Creature Unless Its Growth And Life, Or That Of The System Of Which It Is Part, Are Threatened. To These Ends, In The Practice Of My Art, I Will Put Aside Fear For Courage, And Death For Life, When It Is Right To Do So- Till Universe's End.
