Ends and Means, 1921

4. If thou wouldst ponder and revere the universal laws that bind ends and means together in the ordered universe—seek the deep solitudes of the majestic mountains at Silver Bay.

5. If thou wouldst master and obey the specific laws that govern the relation of means to thy chosen end—avail thyself of the fellowship of those who recreate faith and courage, and inspire confidence in God and man; these are the triumphant spirits of Silver Bay.

— From “Aristotle’s Disciple’s Ten Commandments on Silver Bay” by E.G. Simons of Fort Slocum, N.Y., in Association Men, 1921
