             FFA CREED
I believe in the future of agriculture with
a faith born not of words but of deeds--
achievements won by the present and past
generations of agriculturists; in the
promise of better days through better
ways, even as the better things we now
enjoy have come to us from the struggles
of former years.
             FFA CREED
I believe that to live and work on a good
farm, or to be engaged in other agricultural
pursuits, is pleasant as well as challenging;
for I know the joys and discomforts of
agricultural life and hold an inborn
fondness for those associations which,
even in hours of discouragement, I cannot
           FFA CREED
I believe in leadership from ourselves
and respect from others. I believe in my
own ability to work efficiently and think
clearly, with such knowledge and skill as
I can secure, and in the ability of
progressive agriculturists to serve our
own and public interest in producing and
marketing the product of our toil.
          FFA CREED

I believe in less dependence on
begging and more power in
bargaining; in the life abundant and
enough honest wealth to help make it
so--for others as well as myself; in
less need for charity and more of it
when needed; in being happy myself
and playing square with those whose
happiness depends on me.
          FFA CREED

I believe that American
agriculture can and will hold true
to the best traditions of our
national life and that I can exert an
influence in my home and
community which will stand solid
for my part in that inspiring task.
