Sit at the foot of a native elder and listen as great wisdom of days long past is passed down.

The four agreements are these: Be impeccable with your word. Don't take anything personally. Don't make assumptions. Always do your best. It's the how and why one should do these things that make The Four Agreements worth reading and remembering.
