Quotes: “Freemasonry is the survivor of the ancient mysteries - nay, we may go further and call it the guardian of the mysteries”; "I consider Freemasonry is a sufficiently organized school of mysticism to be entitled to be called a religion.....I boldly aver that Freemasonry is a religion, yet in no way conflicts with any other religion, unless that religion holds that no one outside its portals can be saved"; "Light is the key which opens the door to our mysteries, and it is the same Light which 'shines in every letter of the Koran,' and is the Light of Mithra, who is the light of Ahura-Mazda. It is the same Light from which Moses shaded his eyes when it appeared to him in the bush, and the sign of a R(oyal) A(rch) is still made by an Arunta native of Australia when he returns from the final degree through which he passes in the mysterious ceremonies peculiar to that primitive people. It is that Light of which it is written in our Scriptures that 'the Light shineth in the Darkness and the Darkness comprehended it not' " ; 'Thus by square conduct, level steps, and upright intentions we hope to ascend to those immortal mansions whence all goodness emanates. This is the great lesson of the second degree, that by ourselves and in ourselves, we can discover God  ;
