“You cannot dream yourself into a character, you must hammer and forge yourself into one.”
It all started with a simple idea to find a way to express that Freemasonry isn’t a set it and forget it process. It is a lifelong endeavor that requires constant and fierce examination of yourself and the world around you.
The quote “You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself into one.” is the best example of the only thing left after we have all passed the veil, is our character and we should constantly be putting ourselves through the rigor of improving it.
The Source of the quote is from “The Nemesis of Faith” (1849) by James Anthony Froude; Markham Sutherland’s father, quoted in Letter I and is often mis-attributed to Henry D. Thoreau, as no authentic source for it has yet been found.
