„То, что мы делаем для себя, – умирает вместе с нами, то, что мы делаем для других, – остается навеки.“ Совершённое для самих себя вскоре умирает. Совершённое на благо других и мира обретает бессмертие.

„What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.“


„What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.“

„We must pass through the darkness, to reach the light.“

„That which causes us trials shall yield us triumph: and that which make our hearts ache shall fill us with gladness. The only true happiness is to learn, to advance, and to improve: which could not happen unless we had commenced with error, ignorance, and imperfection. We must pass through the darkness, to reach the light.“

„Let us drink together, fellows, as we did in days of yore.
And still enjoy the golden hours that Fortune has in store;
The absent friends remembered be, in all that’s sung or said,
And Love immortal consecrate the memory of the dead.“

„Fictions are necessary for the people, and the Truth becomes deadly to those who are not strong enough to contemplate it in all its brilliance. In fact, what can there be in common between the vile multitude and sublime wisdom? The Truth must be kept secret, and the masses need a teaching proportioned to their imperfect reason.“

„Less glory is more liberty. When the drum is silent, reason sometimes speaks.“ Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry


„Man's real genius and knowledge remains preserved in books“ Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry

„That which we do for ourselves dies with us … that which we do for others lives forever.“ Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry

„We shall unleash the nihilists and the atheists and we shall provoke a great social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to all nations the effect of absolute atheism; the origins of savagery and of most bloody turmoil.

Then everywhere, the people will be forced to defend themselves against the world minority of the world revolutionaries and will exterminate those destroyers of civilization and the multitudes disillusioned with Christianity whose spirits will be from that moment without direction and leadership and anxious for an ideal, but without knowledge where to send its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer brought finally out into public view. A manifestation which will result from a general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and Atheism; both conquered and exterminated at the same time.“

„The freest people, like the freest man, is always in danger of re-lapsing into servitude. Wars are almost always fatal to Republics. They create tyrants, and consolidate their power. They spring, for the most part, from evil counsels. When the small and the base are intrusted with power, legislation and administration become but two parallel series of errors and blunders, ending in war, calamity, and the necessity for a tyrant. When the nation feels its feet sliding backward, as if it walked on the ice, the time has come for a supreme effort. The magnificent tyrants of the past are but the types of those of the future. Men and nations will always sell themselves into slavery, to gratify their passions and obtain revenge. The tyrant's plea, necessity, is always available; and the tyrant once in power, the necessity of providing for his safety makes him savage. Religion is a power, and he must control that. Independent, its sanctuaries might rebel. Then it becomes unlawful for the people to worship God in their own way, and the old spiritual despotisms revive.“ Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry


„What We Have done for Ourselves Alone Dies With Us; What we have done for Others and the world Remais and is Immortal.“

„Above all things let us never forget that mankind constitutes one great brotherhood; all born to encounter suffering and sorrow, and therefore bound to sympathize with each other.“

„I am Isis, Queen of this country. I was instructed by Mercury. No one can destroy the laws which I have established. I am the eldest daughter of Saturn, most ancient of the Gods.“

„A free people, forgetting that it has a soul to be cared for, devotes all its energies to its material advancement. If it makes war, it is to subserve its commercial interests. The citizens copy after the State, and regard wealth, pomp, and luxury as the great goods of life. Such a nation creates wealth rapidly, and distributes it badly.“ Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry
