LET ALL EVENT VOLUNTEERS REMEMBER THE LAST LINE OF JOHN MILTON’S (1608-1674) POEM

“ON HIS BLINDNESS”

by: John Milton (1608-1674)

WHEN I consider how my light is spent
Ere half my days in this dark world and wide,

And that one talent which is death to hide,
Lodged with me useless, though my soul more bent

To serve therewith my Maker, and present
My true account, lest He returning chide,

'Doth God exact day labor, light denied?'
I fondly ask. But Patience to prevent

That murmur soon replies, 'God doth not need
Either man's work or his own gifts. Who best

Bear his mild yoke, they serve him best. His state
Is kingly: thousands at his bidding speed,

And post o'er land and ocean without rest;
They also serve who only stand and wait.'

-----

'On His Blindness' is reprinted from English Poems. 
Ed. Edward Chauncey Baldwin. New York: 
American Book Company, 1908.

THE AMATEUR'S CODE

The Radio Amateur is:

CONSIDERATE... never knowingly operates in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of others.

LOYAL... offers loyalty, encouragement and support to other amateurs, local clubs, and the American Radio Relay League, through which Amateur Radio in the United States is represented nationally and internationally.

PROGRESSIVE... with knowledge abreast of science, a well-built and efficient station and operation above reproach.

FRIENDLY... slow and patient operating when requested; friendly advice and counsel to the beginner; kindly assistance, cooperation and consideration for the interests of others. These are the hallmarks of the amateur spirit.

BALANCED... radio is an avocation, never interfering with duties owed to family, job, school or community.

PATRIOTIC... station and skill always ready for service to country and community.

--The original Amateur's Code was written by Paul M. Segal, W9EEA, in 1928.
