Four-Way Test

The Four-Way Test of the things we think say or do is a test used by Rotarians world-wide as a moral code for personal and business relationships. 

  1. Is it the truth?
  2. Is it fair to all concerned? 
  3. Will it build good will and better friendships? 
  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
