Philosophy of Life

Every right-minded man has a philosophy of life, whether he knows it or not. Hidden away in his mind are certain governing principles, whether he formulates them in words or not, [regulating] his life.  
--John D. Rockefeller, Random Reminiscences of Men and Events
Off the top of my head, I would say my governing principles are:  to be kind, to act with integrity, to be fair, and to be open-minded. I am the first to admit that I am not always successful with these.

What about you?  What are your governing principles?
