FFA Creed

I believe in the future of agriculture, with afaith born not of words but of deeds - achievements won by the present and pastgenerations of agriculturists; in the promise of better days through betterways, even as the better things we now enjoy have come to us from the strugglesof 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 aschallenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and holdan inborn fondness for those associations which, even in hours ofdiscouragement, I cannot deny.

I believe in leadership from ourselves andrespect from others. I believe in my own ability to work efficiently and thinkclearly, with such knowledge and skill as I can secure, and in the ability ofprogressive agriculturists to serve our own and the public interest inproducing and marketing the product of our toil.

I believe in less dependence on begging and morepower in bargaining; in the life abundant and enough honest wealth to help makeit so--for others as well as myself; in less need for charity and more of itwhen needed; in being happy myself and playing square with those whosehappiness depends upon me.

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

The creed was written by E. M. Tiffany, and adopted at the 3rd National Convention of the FFA. It was revised at the 38thConvention and the 63rd Convention.
