10 Quotes by Freemasons for 2017

I read somewhere that in ancient Babylon, the days between the Winter Solstice and the New Year were seen as the time of a struggle between Chaos and Order, with Chaos trying to take over the world. With a new year comes new opportunities- a chance to better ourselves. The following are select quotes by our late Brothers that will hopefully help bring Order out of Chaos and make us a better man in the process. 

  1. Bro. Benjamin Franklin on Dealing with Realities of Life 



  2. Bro. Winston Churchill On Being Consistent



  3. Bro. Henry Ford On Not Giving Up



  4. Bro. Mark Twain On Stress Free Living



  5. Brother Jose Rizal on Building Courage



  6. Bro. Manly P. Hall on Friendship and Brotherhood



  7. Bro. Ralph Waldo Emerson On Leadership



  8. Bro. George Washington on Choosing Friends and Acquaintances


     
  9. Brother Winston Churchill on Hardship



  10. Bro. James Naismith (Inventor of Basketball) on Mind, Body, and Soul

Always conduct yourself as if someone is watching you – then you can always look yourself in the mirror with honesty and integrity. Always act with integrity: then no one can question you.
