„He moves in darkness as it seems to me,
Not of woods only and the shade of trees.“

—  Robert Lee Frost, Context: He moves in darkness as it seems to me, Not of woods only and the shade of trees. He will not go behind his father’s saying, And he likes having thought of it so well He says again, “Good fences make good neighbours.”

„To plant the trees that, after we are dead, shall shelter our children, is as natural as to love the shade of those our fathers planted.“

—  Albert Pike Confederate States Army general and Freemason 1809 - 1891
Context: The true Mason labors for the benefit of those that are to come after him, and for the advancement and improvement of his race. That is a poor ambition which contents itself within the limits of a single life. All men who deserve to live, desire to survive their funerals, and to live afterward in the good that they have done mankind, rather than in the fading characters written in men's memories. Most men desire to leave some work behind them that may outlast their own day and brief generation. That is an instinctive impulse, given by God, and often found in the rudest human heart; the surest proof of the soul's immortality, and of the fundamental difference between man and the wisest brutes. To plant the trees that, after we are dead, shall shelter our children, is as natural as to love the shade of those our fathers planted. Ch. XIX : Grand Pontiff, p. 312
