WHAT IS A FREEMASON?

A Freemason conducts himself in society as if there were no laws - human or Divine, except those written in his heart by the finger of his Creator.  He kneels before the universal throne of the Divine in gratitude for the blessings he has received and humble solicitation for his future protection.  He does not disturb or mock the Religion of others.  He restrains his passions in a manner that will not injure himself or his neighbor.  He gives no offense, because he does not choose to be offended.  He contracts no debts which he is certain he cannot fulfill, because he is honest upon principal.

"The secret of Masonry, like the secret of life, can be known only by those who seek it, serve it, live it.  If cannot be uttered; it can only be felt and acted.  It is, in fact, an open secret, and each man knows it according to his quest and capacity.  Like all things worth knowing, no one can know it for another and no man can know it alone."  ~Joseph Fort Newton
