Master's Message —

THE POWER OF WORDS

As spoken words can inspire, motivate, heal, and drive positive outcomes. They can also humiliate, hurt, discourage and damage relationships. As masons, we should choose our words carefully before sharing them with others, and most importantly, share them with ourselves to ensure we express our message in a positive and beneficial manner that would drive positive responses and results. Here are but a few quotes by famous Masons that I hope would inspire and promote humility.

FAMOUS MASON QUOTES:

“Freemasonry embraces the highest moral laws and will bear the test of any system of ethics or philosophy ever promulgated for the uplift of man.”
~ Douglas McArthur

“Freemasonry is an order whose leading star is philanthropy and whose principles inculcate an unceasing devotion to the cause of virtue and morality”
~ Lafayette

“I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”
~ Thomas Jefferson

“Freemasonry is 'veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols' because these are the surest way by which moral and ethical truths may be taught. It is not only with the brain and with the mind that the initiate must take Freemasonry but also with the heart.”
~ Carl. H. Claudy

“What we have done for ourselves alone, dies with us; what we have done for others and the world, remains and is immortal”
~ Albert Pike

“Freemasonry teaches us not merely temperance, fortitude, prudence, justice, brotherly love, relief, and truth, but liberty, equality, and fraternity, and denounces ignorance, superstition, bigotry, lust, tyranny, and despotism.”
~ Theodore Roosevelt
