“Would I choose so again? Well, now that is a question. I will only say that if I have acquired any wisdom from Big Kit, it is to live always with your eyes cast forward, to seek what will be, for the path behind can never be retaken.”

— From Washington Black (2018) by Esi Edugyan

Words to Live By

Doc Savage

The Code of Doc Savage

  1. Let me strive, every moment of my life, to make myself better and better, to the best of my ability, that all may profit from it.
  2. Let me think of the right, and lend all my assistance to those who need it, with no regard to anything but justice.
  3. Let me take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage.
  4. Let me be considerate of my country, of my fellow citizens and my associates in everything I say or do.
  5. Let me do right to all, and wrong to no man.
