A Dictionary of Freemasonry
Robert Macoy

3 "The 'creed' of a Mason is simple. It is belief in a God 'in whom we live, and move, and have our being.'"

4 "Those old Grecians and Egyptians saw in all the phenomena of nature – in all the motions of the starry spheres, and in all the miracles of the world – the shadow of that mysterious One, who, although infinite and indivisible, yet in some manner individualizes himself to every human thought, and localizes himself in every place."

5 "There is something divine in man, which prompts him to look beyond the mere supply of his necessities, and to aim continually at higher objects."

6 "The center of unity is not material nor visible. It is an internal principle which dwells in all its parts, and binds them altogether in one harmonious whole."

7 "The circle has ever been considered symbolical of the Deity; for as a circle appears to have neither beginning nor end, it may be justly considered a type [archetype] of God, without either beginning of days or ending of years."

8 "God is immanent in all created things, working in each blade of grass, and swelling bud, and opening flower."

9 "The Eye of God is in every place."

10 "Faith is the foundation of justice, the bond of amity, and chief support of society; we live and walk by faith."

11 "Everything is the perpetual transformation or metamorphosis of God."

12 "The Alcoran [Koran] describes Allah's character and attributes thus: 'He alone is self-existent; has no rival; is from everlasting to everlasting; fills the universe with his presence; is the center in which all things unite.'"
