Masonic Quotations

  • “I violate no secret when I say that one of the greatest values in Masonry is that it affords an opportunity for men of all walks of life to meet on common ground where all men are equal and have one common interest.” – Theodore Roosevelt
  • “The true Mason takes full responsibility for the condition of his character and ever strives for its perfection”. – William Howard Taft
  • “The greatest lesson in life is to know that even fools are right sometimes.” – Winston Churchill
  • “The true Mason always carries his working tools everywhere.” – William Howard Taft
  • “One thing and only one thing a Masonic Lodge can give its members which they can get nowhere else in the world. That one thing is Masonry.” – George Washington
  • “The genius of Freemasonry is not our Masonic buildings and temples or the trappings of our organizations. It is not our great charities or community activities. It is not our beautiful rituals or their teachings! It is the ‘practice of Freemasonry’ by the Freemasons. Yet we cannot practice that which we do not know or understand. Thus Masonic education is the foundation for our Fraternity. “- Carl H. Claudy
