To acknowledge and respect the views, accomplishments and
prerogatives of others and to accept being wrong shows me
the way of humility. To practice the principles of
A.A. in all my affairs guides me to be responsible.
Honoring these precepts gives credence to Tradition Four --
and to all other Traditions of the Fellowship. Alcoholics
Anonymous has evolved a philosophy of life full of valid motivations,
rich in highly relevant principles and ethical values, a view
of life which can be extended beyond the confines of the alcoholic
population. To honor these precepts I need only to pray,
and care for my fellow man as if each one were my brother.
