During the course of living our daily lives, Rotarians use this simple test to insure that the way we live is consistant with the spirit of Rotary by asking these 4 simple questions:

1. Is it the TRUTH?
    2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
      3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
        4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
