"Masonry is an art.  In every art there is a mystery, which requires a progress of study and application to arrive at any degree of perfection.  Without much instruction and some exercise, no man can be skillful in any art; in like manner, without an assiduous application to the various subjects treated of in Masonry, no person can be sufficiently acquainted with its true value.  From this remark, it must not be inferred that persons who labor under the disadvantage of a confined education, or whose sphere of life requires assiduous attention to business are to be discouraged in their endeavors to gain a knowledge of Masonry. 

To qualify an individual to enjoy the benefits of the society at large, or to partake of its privileges, it is not absolutely necessary that he should be acquainted with all its intricate parts.  These are only intended for persons who may have leisure and opportunity to indulge such pursuits.  Some may be more able than others: some more eminent; some more useful; but all, in their different sphere, may prove advantageous to the community, and our necessities as well as our consciences bind us to cherish one another.  It must be admitted that those who accept offices and exercise authority in the Lodge ought to be men of prudence and address, enjoying all the advantages of a well cultivated mind and retentive memory. 

He who wishes to teach, must submit to learn; and no one is qualified to support the higher offices of the Lodge, who has not previously discharged the duties of those which are subordinate/  Experience is the best preceptor.  All men rise by gradation, and merit and industry are the first steps to preferment."
