Although I hold the highest civil honour in the world, I have always regarded my rank and title as a Past Grand Master of Masons the greatest honour that had ever come to me. I value it above all others because to be a Grand Master Of Masons one must be more than a good public relations man–he must have a background based upon the noblest of principles, and he must bear the respect and esteem of the good men who make up the Craft.

Modern civil society was invented during the Enlightenment in the new enclaves of sociability of which Freemasonry was the most avowedly constitutional and aggressively civic.
Freemasonry was one of the social practices that transmitted to the continent a vocabulary that put freedom and equality central on the word list
We should never under estimate the emotional pull of Masonic rituals, the intensity of loyalty they could inspire
