The Saluki Creed

TO EXALT BEAUTY

in god, in nature, and in art; teaching how to love the best but to keep the human touch.

TO ADVANCE LEARNING

in all lines of truth wherever they may lead, showing how to think rather than what to think, assisting the powers of the mind in their self-development

TO FORWARD IDEAS & IDEALS

in our democracy, inspiring respect for others as for ourselves, ever promoting freedom with responsibility.

TO BECOME A CENTER OF ORDER & LIGHT

that knowledge may lead to understanding and understanding to wisdom.
