The Pledge

The Pledge

I. I now realize that the greatest power in the world is the power of knowledge.

2. I want to be smart. Dumb, misinformed people go through life missing so many rewards that could be theirs.

3. I will learn my basic skills and be expert in them.

4. I will read books on the subjects that interest me most. But I will also read books and articles on other subjects to broaden my awareness of what is happening in the world around me.

5. I will discuss at dinner time what I have learned or questioned at school today.

6. I will study the ideas and dreams of our history to see how they can help me today.

7. I will set aside some time each day to think about my future, to discuss it with people I respect and to work on accumulating the knowledge that can guarantee that future.

8. I pledge this to those who love me and are trying to help me succeed. MORE IMPORTANT, I PLEDGE IT TO MYSELF
