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
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 deny.
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 the public interest in producing and marketing the product
of our toil.
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 upon me.
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.
