Freemasonry means different things to each of those who join. For some, it’s about making new friends and acquaintances. For others, it’s about being able to help deserving causes – making a contribution to family and society. But for most, it is an enjoyable hobby.READ MORE
The questions of when, how, why and where Freemasonry originated are still the subject of intense speculation. The general consensus amongst Masonic scholars is that it descends directly or indirectly from the organisation of operative stone masons who built the great cathedrals and castles of the middle ages.READ MORE
The values of Freemasonry are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Freemasons are taught to practise charity and to care, not only for their own, but also for the community as a whole – both by charitable giving, and by voluntary efforts and works as individuals.READ MORE
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.
To educate a person in the mind but not in the morals is to educate a menace to society.
I believe that the ability to think is a blessing. If you can think about a situation, you can deal with it. The big struggle is to keep your head clear enough to think.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.
Nobody owes anybody a living, but everybody is s entitled to a chance.
Better to keep a good conscience with an empty purse, than to get a bad opinion of myself, with a full one.
If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.
Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
