A man is born, he lives and, at some point, he dies.
At best he can expect to live with honor, to fight with courage, to father children and die in dignity.
We raise and enrich our children with these qualities, for the future is beyond our vision.
To us we take a wife. This woman is to love, to treat with dignity and hold fast throughout life.
To live with joy and peace, gather unto you only that which is necessary. Waste destroys harmony.
In our creation, we borrow a modest amount of earth and water. One day these elements will be surrendered.
