Just an Honor Code I wrote up for myself.
Honor Code

This is the code I, <my name>, strive to live by:
My Creed:
I, <my name>, intend to live with integrity (Section I.A) and morality (Section I.B) to the utmost degree as described in (Section II), not judging others based off race, religion, political stance, or creed (Section III). I shall view others as friends until hostile actions, as shall be determined by logical intent and spoken words, have proven otherwise.
When such instance occurs, I shall strive to resolve this conflict in an ordered and disciplined manner as described in Section IV, unless prevented from doing so by some means. Failing such attempts, I shall break off communication and contact with said person(s) for a period of no less then twenty-four (24) hours and no greater then ninety-six (96) hours.
After said time period has expired, I shall attempt once more to resolve the conflict between myself and said person(s) (Section V). Failing such, I will permanently break communication and contact with the person(s) involved.
In doing the above, I shall maintain my honor, dignity, and discipline (Section VI) at all times. I shall act only in a manner considered reasonable and cautious. I shall strive to better myself and others in this attempt. I shall not lower myself to other's standards, but adhere to this creed at all times.
