Albert Pike   Category:

The universal medicine for the Soul is the Supreme Reason and Absolute Justice; for the mind, mathematical and practical Truth; for the body, the Quintessence, a combination of light and gold.
Albert Pike   Category:

To work with the hands or brain, according to our requirements and our capacities, to do that which lies before us to do, is more honorable than rank and title.
Albert Pike   Category:

War is a series of catastrophes which result in victory.
Albert Pike   Category: War

We have all the light we need, we just need to put it in practice.
Albert Pike   Category:

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
Albert Pike   Category: Death

Will is the dynamic soul-force.
