Which Code is Your Favorite?

Let's take a look at some codes:

Je'daii
There is no ignorance; there is knowledge.
There is no fear; there is power.
I am the heart of the Force.
I am the revealing fire of light.
I am the mystery of darkness
In balance with chaos and harmony,
Immortal in the Force.

Jedi Original
Emotion, yet peace.
Ignorance, yet knowledge.
Passion, yet serenity.
Chaos, yet harmony.
Death, yet the Force.

Jedi Revised
There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force.

Jedi Modern Form
Jedi are the guardians of peace in the galaxy.
Jedi use their powers to defend and to protect.
Jedi respect all life, in any form.
Jedi serve others rather than ruling over them, for the good of the galaxy.
Jedi seek to improve themselves through knowledge and training.

Jedi Lightsaber Code
The crystal is the heart of the blade.
The heart is the crystal of the Jedi.
The Jedi is the crystal of the Force.
The Force is the blade of the heart.
All are intertwined.
The crystal, the blade, the Jedi.
We are one.

Sith
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.

Darth Ruin's Variation
There is no passion…there is solely obsession.
There is no knowledge. There is solely conviction.
There is no purpose. There is solely will.
There is nothing…
Only me.

Smuggler Code:
"Never fight when you can bluff.
Never bluff when you can run.
Never run when you can sneak.
If no one knows you're there, you win.

Mandalorian Resol'nare:
"You will raise your young as Mandalorians—and defend them.
You will wear our armor, and speak our language.
And you will serve the clan, and rally when called.
These are the Resol'nare—the Six Actions—sacred to our movement.
Do them—and you may live to call yourselves Mandalorians!"

So, aside from noticing that the Jedi have too many codes, can't seem to decide on a single formula, and that Luke Skywalker is no poet... Which one do you like best? Which one do you think is most valid? How do you interpret that code?

I decided to add the two non-Force involved codes as an additional contrast.

I think you can figure out which one I follow...
I am Silimaa, Lore Master of the Je'daii. I walk the path of balance, suspended between the Shadow of Bogan and the Light of Ashla. I am one with the Force, at peace with the world. I dwell in Kaleth, Temple of Knowledge, to learn of the past and the future that I may come to understand the present.

You forgot Darth Ruin's creed:

There is no passion…there is solely obsession.
There is no knowledge. There is solely conviction.
There is no purpose. There is solely will.
There is nothing…
Only me.

Please add it. If I was a Sith I would prefer it to the original Sith code


Well, the one I like the most is Luke's code. It describes what the Jedi are. That's what makes the Jedi what they are, not how they deal with emotion or whatever.
I like the Jedi code (original and revised), if it is clear that it isn't the heart of the Jedi Order. It is a mantra to help on light side meditation.

And the Sith code is best understood as a historic document. It describes how the founders of the Sith order wanted to break free from what they felt was oppression by the Jedi. Like the old Jedi Code it is far from describing what defines the Sith.

Edit: Oh, and there are also the principles of Rajivari. Not sure if they count as code, but they are close to Luke's code. Just...ehm... dark side.
"I was one of many. We were servants of the dark side… Sith Lords, we called ourselves. So proud. In the end we were not so proud. We hid… hid from those we had betrayed. We fell… and I knew it would be so."

I prefer the Jed'aii code and the Lightsaber code. The Jed'aii is just powerful, and the Lightsaber is how they view themselves.
STATEMENT: I'm just a simple assassin...I mean bodyguard, master. You have nothing to fear.

I like the Sith code you listed because it is absolutely true. From a certain point of view.
I achieved the ultimate level of SWTOR endgame: Forum ranting & trolling!

IDK, that's what the Je'daii code reminded me of.

The Sith code of Darth Baras:
The cake is a lie, there is only pie.
Through pie, I gain calories.
Through calories, I gain fat.
My belt shall be broken.
The recliner shall free me.

I prefer the Smuggler's Code

The Force is a lie, there is only Luck
Through my Luck, I smuggle Stuff
Through smuggling Stuff, I earn Credits
My Credits Shall Free Me.

Darth Baras's Sith Code:

The Cake is a lie, there is only Pie.
Through Pie, I gain Calories.
Through Calories, I gain Fat.
Through Fat, I gain Girth.
Through Girth, my Belt is Broken.
The Recliner shall free me.

But seriously, I like the Je'Daii Oath and the Original Jedi Code the best.

Lets here it for capin' Z! Good one.

The sith code certainly seems to have a lot more practical application. After all, is there really anyone, aside from people who post in MMO game forums, who really want to be losers?

Everybody likes winning. So a formula for winning and freedom is going to have much more popular appeal in the long run.
