Those who forget this critical tenant of freemasonry are surely running amiss of their promise. But remember this my fine young brothers. Masons are human and subject to all the imperfections of the species. Be ye diligent, prudent, temperate, discreet. We're all subject to shortcomings. Masonry arms us with the ability to overcome.
