precept

(noun) Rule of personal conduct.

Synonyms: principle

Usage: I forget who it was that recommended men for their soul's good to do each day two things they disliked: it was a wise man, and it is a precept that I have followed scrupulously; for every day I have got up and I have gone to bed.
