    Hi there,

    My former boss used to quote an old Mennonite Dictum that went something like
    Deal fairly with people, squarely with issues, and __________________________.

    Have you ever heard of this and do you have the full Dictum, I like to use it in business as a guide and I would love the correct wording.

    Thank you so much.
