Էջ 4 - The wisdom of a learned man cometh by opportunity of leisure: and he that hath little business shall become wise. How can he get wisdom that holdeth the plough, and that glorieth in the goad, that driveth oxen, and is occupied in their labours, and whose talk is of bullocks?
Էջ 118 - Master by those that work under him. The Craftsmen are to avoid all ill language, and to call each other by no disobliging name, but Brother or fellow ; and to behave themselves courteously within and without the Lodge. The Master, knowing himself to be able of cunning, shall undertake the lord's work as reasonably as possible, and truly dispend his goods as if they were his own ; nor to give more wages to any Brother or apprentice than he really may deserve.
Էջ 4 - Without these cannot a city be inhabited: and they shall not dwell where they will, nor go up and down: they shall not be sought for in public council, nor sit high in the congregation: they shall not sit on the judges...
Էջ 119 - If any complaint be brought, the brother found guilty, shall stand to the award and determination of the lodge, who are the proper and competent judges of all such controversies, (unless you carry it by appeal to the grand lodge...
Էջ 118 - So that if a Brother should be a Rebel against the State, he is not to be coun tenanc'd in his Rebellion, however he may be pitied as an unhappy Man ; and, if convicted of no other Crime, though the loyal Brotherhood must and ought to disown his Rebellion, and give no Umbrage or Ground of political Jealousy to the Government for the time being; they they cannot expel him from the Lodge, and his Relation to it remains indefeasible.
Էջ 118 - Fellow could be absent from it, especially when warned to appear at it, without incurring a severe censure, until it appeared to the Master and Wardens that pure necessity hindered him.
Էջ 119 - You are not to hold private committees, or separate conversation, without leave from the master, nor to talk of any thing impertinent or unseemly, nor interrupt the master or wardens, or any brother speaking to the master...
Էջ 120 - ... rancor, (not in the common way,) saying or doing nothing which may hinder Brotherly Love, and good offices to be renewed and continued; that all may see the benign influence of Masonry, as all true Masons have done from the beginning of the world, and will do to the end of time.
Էջ 119 - Behaviour after the Lodge is over, and the Brethren not gone. You may enjoy yourselves with innocent Mirth, treating one another according to Ability, but avoiding all Excess, or forcing any Brother to eat or drink beyond his Inclination, or hindering him from going when his occasions call him, or doing or saying any thing offensive, or that may forbid an easy and free Conversation ; for that would blast our Harmony, and defeat our laudable Purposes.
