OH 1/14/20 1p. "I believe in the stuff I am handing out, in the firm I am working for; and in my ability to get results. I believe that honest stuff can be passed out to honest men by honest methods. I believe in working, not weeping; in boosting, not knocking; and in the pleasure of my job. I believe that a man gets what he goes after, and that one deed done today is worth two deeds tomorrow, and that no man is down and out until he has lost faith in himself. I believe in today and the work I am doing, in tomorrow and the work I hope to do, and the sure reward which the future holds. I believe in courtesy, in kindness, in generosity, in good cheer, in friendship and in honest competition. I believe there is something doing, somewhere, for every man read to do it. I believe I'm ready -- RIGHT NOW!" Hubbard's motto can be found in: "The motto book; being a catalogue of epigrams. East Aurora, N.Y., The Roycrofters, 1914, p. 13-14."
