The Code of Honour*

This code was first published in Professional Auditor’s Bulletin No. 40 on 26 November 1954.

1. Never desert a comrade in need, in danger or in trouble.
2. Never withdraw allegiance once granted.
3. Never desert a group to which you owe your support.
4. Never disparage yourself or minimize your strength or power.
5. Never need praise, approval or sympathy.
6. Never compromise with your own reality.
7. Never permit your affinity to be alloyed.
8. Do not give or receive communication unless you yourself desire it.
9. Your self-determinism and your honour are more important than your immediate life.
10. Your integrity to yourself is more important than your body.
11. Never regret yesterday. Life is in you today, and you make your tomorrow.
12. Never fear to hurt another in a just cause.
13. Don’t desire to be liked or admired.
14. Be your own adviser, keep your own counsel and select your own decisions.
15. Be true to your own goals.

*Honour is the British spelling of ‘honor.’ If you are American, you’re more accustomed to the ‘honor’ spelling. Hubbard was living and working in London at the time he wrote this code. Therefore the original spelling he used was ‘honour.’
