1. You must never act in a way that you cannot will to become a universal law.
2. There are crackers in the pantry, but they are being eaten by mice.
3. I like to do the right thing, and my mommy’s happy when I do.
4. If you would like to come to my party, you must bring a gift.
5. If fifteen rampaging elephants show up at the party, you ought to drive them out with your broadsword.
6. Always treat other people as an end in themselves, not merely as a means to your own ends.
7.If you would like to live, then you should not jump off cliffs.
