The Mysterious and Intimidating World of
Product Development and Manufacturing

I have the greatest respect for engineers, who labor with 
great intelligence in obscurity, developing wonderful products 
for my enjoyment.

I've been enjoying about a zillion, perhaps two zillion,
wonderful products which were developed by others;
while I've made no such contribution.

I found the following when I entered "humility - engineering"
into an Internet search engine:

Engineers' Creed

As a Professional Engineer, I dedicate my professional knowledge
and skill to the advancement and betterment of human welfare.

I pledge:

To give the utmost of performance;

To participate in none but honest enterprise;

To live and work according to the laws of man
and the highest standards of professional conduct;

To place service before profit, the honor and standing
of the profession before personal advantage, and the
public welfare above all other considerations.

In humility and with need for Divine Guidance, I make this pledge.

Adopted by National Society of Professional Engineers, June 1954
