Only Here And There The Stout, Strong Heart And Vigorous Arms Struggle On Toward Ultimate Success.
~ Albert Pike

Two-story Men Compare Reason And Generalize, Using Labors Of The Fact Collectors As Well As Their Own. Three-story Men Idealize, Imagine, And Predict. Their Best Illuminations Come From Above Through The Skylight.
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
Good Men Must Be Affectionate Men.
