The five parts of Cormac's Code:
1. Honor, not honors
2. Speak the truth, but speak it in a way that does not cause undue pain.
3. Do not make promises lightly, and when you do make a promise, treat it with the gravity it deserves.
4. Treat all people with respect until they show you they don't deserve respect.
5. Bitch less, do more.
1. My word is my word, if i make a commitment i follow through with it
2. Don't complain about useless stuff
3. I speak the truth, dont beat around the bush just say it
4. quality over quantity, especially when it comes to friends
5. have fun, do what you want to do not what someone else says to do
1. Keep an open mind and listen to all sides of an argument
2. Respect opinions that differ from your own
3. Defend and protect those weaker than yourself
4. Honor your commitments
5. Never stop learning
It is our primary purpose to serve our Lord and develop our relationship with Him. All our values, morals, and principles begin in God. As God began His commandments by which we should live our lives so should we begin any system by which we would judge our lives.
2. Responsibility to family.
It is our duty as men to provide for those on our family. We provide not only sustenance, but leadership, comfort, Godly example, care, protection, and loving discipline to our children and wives. We are also to provide refuge for family in need of what we would give any of our own children. As our parents gave to us so we should freely return to them.
Honor for not just our selves but for our neighbors as well. Respect is a word that honor must walk hand in hand with. I know of no better show of honor than that displayed in the Knights Code of Chivalry that includes traits such as: loyalty, faithfulness, honesty, trustworthiness, bravery, etc.
4. Diligent work ethic.
A man should take pride in any task that he sets his mind and body to. It has been said that it is a great gift of God for a man to work hard at work worth doing. If we believe a job is not worth our full effort, then we dishonor ourselves with our own sense of self-importance.
Empathy for those who are not as blessed in one area or another as we might be. The ability to take a step out of our controlled world and help our neighbor through a difficult time by not merely acknowledging their situation but also taking action to assist them in this struggle.
"What I learned from this thread is that people spell asafoetida "acifidity" -- that is, they don't just pronounce it that way.
I'm no expert, but I think if you put asafoetida in a bag, you've got an acifidity bag.…"
