From the desk of the Worshipful Master:


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.  Like all things worth knowing, no one can know it for another and no man can know it alone. – unknown​
