  7. To gain understanding that wisdom may be vouchsafed to me.
    To develop and prize health and vigor of body.
    To cultivate acquaintance with many whom I meet.
    To cherish friendships with but a chosen few and to study the perfecting of those friendships.
    To welcome the opportunity of contributing to the world's work in the community where I am placed because of the joy of service thereby bestowed and the talent of leadership multiplied.
    To honor my home, my country, my religious faith.
    To hold truth inviolable, sincerity essential, kindness invaluable.
    To covet beauty in environment, manner, word and thought.
    To possess high ideals and to attain somewhat unto them.
    This shall be my purpose that those who know me may esteem Alpha Gamma Delta for her attainments, revere her for her purposes and love her for her Womanhood.
