The Toolperson's Creed

These are my tools. There are many like them, but these are mine.

My tools are my best friend. They are my life. I must master them as I must master my life. Without me, my tools useless. Without my tools, I am useless. I must use my tools safe and true.

My tools and I know that what counts in life is not the screws we use, the noise of our hammers, nor the dust we make. We know that it is the results that count.

My tools are human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn them as a spouse. I will learn their weaknesses, their strength, their parts, their accessories, their uses and their options. I will keep my tools clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other.

Before God/Allah/Brahma/Buddha/Confucius, I swear this creed. My tools and I are the defenders of civilization and the infrastructure that defines it. We are the masters of our fate. We are the saviors of our life.

So be it, until all things are fixed or built, and there is nothing left to do, but rest!

<p>Congratulations on your (our) creed.</p><p>alow me a litle contribution, with de portuguese translation.</p><p><strong>&quot;Credo da Ferramenta<br>pessoal</strong></p><p>Estas s&atilde;o as minhas ferramentas. H&aacute; muitas como elas, mas<br>estas s&atilde;o minhas.</p><p>As Minhas ferramentas s&atilde;o meu melhor amigo. Eles s&atilde;o a minha<br>vida. Eu deve domina-las como eu devo dominar minha vida. Sem mim, as minhas<br>ferramentas s&atilde;o in&uacute;teis. Sem as minhas ferramentas, eu sou in&uacute;til. Devo usar as<br>minhas ferramentas de forma segura e verdadeira.</p><p>As Minhas ferramentas e eu sabemos que o que conta na vida n&atilde;o<br>s&atilde;o os parafusos que utilizamos, o ru&iacute;do dos nossos martelos, nem a poeira que<br>fazemos. Sabemos que s&atilde;o os resultados que contam.</p><p>As Minhas ferramentas s&atilde;o humanas, assim como eu, porque s&atilde;o<br>a minha vida. Assim, vou conhec&ecirc;-las como uma extens&atilde;o de mim. Vou aprender as<br>suas fraquezas, a sua for&ccedil;a, as suas<br>partes, os seus acess&oacute;rios, os seus usos e as suas op&ccedil;&otilde;es. Vou manter as minhas<br>ferramentas limpas e prontas, assim como eu sou limpo e pronto. N&oacute;s nos<br>tornaremos parte um do outro.</p><p>Diante de Deus / Allah / Brahma / Buddha, eu juro este<br>credo. As Minhas ferramentas e eu somos os defensores da civiliza&ccedil;&atilde;o e da infraestrutura<br>que o define. N&oacute;s somos os mestres do nosso destino. N&oacute;s somos os salvadores da<br>nossa vida.</p><p>Assim seja, at&eacute; que todas as coisas sejam consertadas ou<br>constru&iacute;dos, e n&atilde;o haja nada a fazer, a n&atilde;o ser o descanso!&quot;</p>
<p>Thank you for translating OUR creed! It looks great.</p>
Love it
