WHAT DO WE ASK A MAN TO MASTER?

Do we ask a man to master his life?

No! We know in our minds, that can not be done.

Do we ask a man to master his love?

No! We know in our hearts, that can not be done.

Do we ask a man to master his art?

No! We know in our soul, that can not be done.

Do we ask a man to master others?

No, we know in our conscience, that should not be done.

Do we ask a man to master a moment?

YES! One hard fought moment, at a time.

And we ask only the very strong, to string these moments,

one by one, as closely together as possible.

And then pass down this precious string of moments,

so that the next person can add to the eternal labor of life.

The never-ending dream of mankind.

For just one more moment of time, to be itís master.

DEDICATED TO GRANDMASTER DONALD BOHAN
