“A society without standards will be a society without stability and it will one day go down. Not only nations but whole civilizations have perished in the past for lack of righteousness.”

“All men are capable of reason. That is the fundamental principle of democracy. Because everybody’s mind is capable of true knowledge, you don’t have to have a special authority, or a special revelation telling you that this is the way things should be.”

“Blessed is the servant who loves his brother as much when he is sick and useless as when he is well and can be of service to him.”

“Education lays hold of what is best in a person, but character lays hold of what is worse. It takes hold of a failing and by very skillful manipulation and training turns it into a perfection.”

“Every child comes with a message that God is not yet discouraged of man.”

“Everybody really knows what to do to have his life filled with joy. What is it? Quit hating people; start loving them. Quit being mad at people; start liking them.”

“Freemasonry has endured not because of its antiquity, its influence, or its social standing, but because there have been so many who have lived it.”

“Good Masons make good churchmen. Every clergyman can testify to the truth of this. They make loyal and sacrificing patriots. Our colonial history supplies the proof of this assertion. ”

“Ideals are like stars. You will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but, like the seafaring man, you choose them as your guides, and following them, you will reach your destiny.”

“If you have anything really valuable to contribute to the world, it will come through the expression of your own personality, that single spark of divinity that sets you off and makes you different from every other living creature.”

“If you want to know where the future of Freemasonry will grow and prosper it’s simple in the heart, in your heart, in my heart, and in the hearts of those who follow us.”

“Live neither in the past nor the future, but let each day’s work absorb your entire energies, and satisfy your widest ambition.”

“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”

“Partnership is not a principle, but a relationship between persons who share in a common enterprise, involving common risks, common privileges, and common responsibilities.”

“The great lesson in life is to know that even fools are right sometimes.”

“The most beautiful thing that we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”

“The secret of Masonry, like the secret of life, can be known only by those who seek it, serve it, live it. It cannot be uttered; it can only be felt and acted. It is, in fact, an open secret, and each man knows it according to his quest and capacity. ”

“The truth is like a balloon and a lie is like a pin, once you pierce the balloon with the pin the balloon, like the truth, becomes worthless.”

“There are few who have courage enough to admit their faults or resolution enough to mend them.”

“There are one-story intellects, two-story intellects, and three-story intellects with sky-lights.”

“There are parts of a ship which taken by themselves would sink. The engine would sink. The propeller would sink. But when the parts of a ship are built together, they float.”

“Throw away all ambition beyond that of doing the days work well. The traveler on the road to success live in the present, heedless of taking thought for the marrow.”

“To fulfill the dreams of ones youth; that is the best that can happen to a man. No worldly success can take the place of that.””

“Toleration, holding that every other man has the same right to his opinion and faith that we have to ours; and liberality, holding that as no human being can with certainty say, in the clash and conflict of hostile faiths and creeds, what is truth, or that he is surely in possession of it.”

“We Masons are among the fortunate ones who are taught to meet together with others opposing or competitive ideas and yet respect each other as Brothers.”
