- Brotherly Love: Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and will behave with compassion and understanding to his fellows.
- Relief: From earliest times Freemasons have been taught to help those in distress without detriment to their dependents, and to give their support to outside charities.
- Truth: Freemasons strive for truth both in their view of themselves and in their dealings with others. Masonry requires high moral standards and its members endeavor to uphold these principles in their public and private lives.
