    Love to hear of any Masonic quotations you have. I'll start with one:

    "Those who speak of irregularity are forced to throw a veil over their
    own origins and do not forget they were the irregular yesterday"

    I heard this one today, Worshipful Joe...."Worry not about the empty seat in your lodge...Worry about the empty experiences that led to it."-Dyson Jeda

    ...what you have seen praiseworthy in others, you should carefully imitate; and what in them may have appeared defective, you should in yourselves amend.

    A very similar quote is to be found in Preston's Illustrations

    Sometimes W.Bro Dyson, we have to step back and make some very tough and emotional decisions for the betterment of oneself and The Craft in particular.

    When I was a young man I often asked myself why the men that I admired most were much different than myself. It finally dawned on me that maybe I should change my ways and actions to better reflect the the traits that I so admired.

    The most important operative working tool of the Speculative Freemasons Lodge is not the square, compass nor even the level; it's the telephone!

    WHY DID YOU KNOCK
    I once requested to enter in
    A place unknown a place within
    I had a guide, cause I was blind
    I could not see what was inside
    Instructions given to knock three times
    So I obeyed, and did it thrice
    Before I knew a sound was made
    A door flew open, admission gained
    Escorted in, conductors path
    To different places I could not grasp
    Three times they asked, was it my choice
    I said, "it is", in nervous voice
    Once this had ended, I came again
    Once more to enter a second day
    After it all, I was requested
    To come once more, complete the lesson
    On my third time, I did not know
    That I must die a death untold
    But to explain what happen then
    It was a miracle I rose again.
    The mysteries, of arts, of Mind
    Philosophies that prove divine
    To seek and learn the lessons told
    Improve yourself, a voice had echoed
    It came so clear, why I had asked
    To enter in, the door of paths
    Subconscious thoughts an endless clock
    In all I realized, why I had knocked

    Are you walking in light
