Atheists and agnostics: From whence do you derive your moral code?

I get the sense that most of us who reject traditional Christian morality get by on an innate sense of what is right and wrong, or simple rules such as the golden rule, or "Do as you will, and harm no one" (Wiccan, I think).
Is there any secular writing, speech, poem, tradition, etc, from which you derive your code of ethics? Failing that, I'm also interested in non-Christian writings/traditions.
