Some of you may be old enough to remember the black and white western tv show “the Lone Ranger.” Other may only remember his black mask and trusty horse “silver.” But I came across an article recently in a trade magazine that outlined the morals by which the Lone Ranger lived. After reading it I thought it was fitting to post. If more men followed these timeless tidbits we might all be a little better off.


• I believe that to have a friend, a man must be one.

• I believe that all men are created equal and that everyone has within himself the power to make this a better world.

• I believe that God put the firewood there, but that every man must gather and light it himself.

• I believe in being prepared physically, mentally, and morally to fight when necessary for that which is right.

• I believe a man should make the most of the equipment he has.

• I believe that men should live by the rule of what is best for the greatest number.

• I believe that sooner or later.. Somewhere, somehow, we must settle with the world and make payment for what we have taken.

• I believe that all things change but truth, and that alone lives on forever.

• I believe in my creator, my country, and my fellow man
