Strive to obtain the maximum value for each dollar of expenditure. 3. Decline personal gifts or gratuities. 4. Grant all competitive suppliers equal consideration insofar as state or federal statute and institutional policy permit. 5. Conduct business with potential and current suppliers in an atmosphere of good faith, devoid of intentional misrepresentation. 6. Demand honesty in sales representation whether offered through the medium of a verbal or written statement, an advertisement, or a sample of the product. 7. Receive consent of originator of proprietary ideas and designs before using them for competitive purchasing purposes. 8. Make every reasonable effort to negotiate an equitable and mutually agreeable settlement of any controversy with a supplier; and/or be willing to submit any major controversies to arbitration or other third party review, insofar as the established policies of my institution permit. 9. Accord a prompt and courteous reception insofar as conditions permit to all who call on legitimate business missions. 10. Cooperate with trade, industrial and professional associations, and with governmental and private agencies for the purposes of promoting and developing sound business methods. 11.

St. Augustine - Confessions And this, but to do what we liked only, because it was misliked. Behold my heart, O God, behold my heart, which Thou hadst pity upon in the bottom of the bottomless pit. No, behold, let my heart tell Thee what it sought there, that I should be gratuitously evil, having no temptations to ill, but the ill itself. It was foul, and I loved it: I loved to perish, I loved mine own fault, not that for which I was faulty, but my fault itself. Foul soul, falling from Thy firmament to utter destruction: not seeking aught through the shame, but the shame itself!
