"...Peace, that here on the broad platform of brotherly love, the high, the low, the rich, the poor, may meet together with one common purpose, the perpetuation of each other's friendship and each other's love.

Unity, being linked together by a chain of sincere friendship.

Plenty, that though it may be given to some to have more of the world's goods than others, still the man that has his health, strength, and ambition has indeed his plenty..."

-- The Ritual of Passing, Middle Chamber Lecture

In this chaotic and increasingly impersonal world these are reasons enough for me.
