“And let us ever remember the words of an old writer, with which we conclude this lecture:
‘It is a pleasure to stand on the shore, and to see ships tossed upon the sea: a pleasure to stand in the window of a castle, and see a battle and the adventures thereof: but no pleasure is comparable to the standing on the vantage-ground of TRUTH (a hill not to be commanded, and where the air is always clear and serene), and to see the errors and wanderings, and mists and tempests, in the vale below; so always that this prospect be with pity, and not with swelling or pride. Certainly it is Heaven upon Earth to have a man’s mind move in charity, rest in Providence, AND TURN UPON THE POLES OF TRUTH.’”
Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 553.
