„Genuine work alone, done faithfully, is eternal, even as the Almighty Founder and Worldbuilder Himself.“

— Albert Pike, Context: Genuine work alone, done faithfully, is eternal, even as the Almighty Founder and Worldbuilder Himself. All work is noble: a life of ease is not for any man, nor for any God. The Almighty Maker is not like one who, in old immemorial ages, having made his machine of a Universe, sits ever since, and sees it go. Out of that belief comes Atheism. The faith in an Invisible, Unnameable, Directing Deity, present everywhere in all that we see, and work, and suffer, is the essence of all faith whatsoever. Ch. XXII : Knight of the Royal Axe, or Prince of Libanus, p. 340
