The Motive Power

"The man who would be a Freemason comes at once in contact with what may be called the mechanics of the fraternity.  These, constantly in view from the very beginning, guide his footsteps through the path of initiation, and mould his conduct as a Master Mason.  He is fortunate, indeed, whose vision enables him to see beyond the flying wheels and levers and catch a vision of the motive power behind.  All too many accept the mechanism as the motive power; find in the machinery both a beginning and an end, and so never become Freemasons in the inner meaning of the word."

Carl H. Claudy, Foreign Countries
