Delta Zeta Creed

 
To the world,
I promise temperance and insight and courage, 
To crusade for justice, To seek the truth and defend it always.
 
To those whom my life may touch in slight measure,
May I give graciously of what is mine.

To my friends,
Understanding and appreciation.

To those closer ones,
Love that is ever steadfast.

To my mind,
Growth.
 
To myself,
Faith, that I may walk truly in the light of the flame.

– Dorothy M. Williams
