Masonic is a word that is used in reference to freemasonry and the masons who practice the rituals and ceremonies of this secret society. Masonic quotes show that freemasonry is a very secret society, and no one who has not been included will know or understand any of the secret rituals and ceremonies which are performed during the masonic meetings. Many of the top architectural designs and exquisite structures around the world have masonic origins. Free masonry is reserved for stone masons, and this secret society has been around for hundreds of years or more. There are some who believe that the masonic rites and rituals are evil or that the masons have formed the Illuminati but others view the masonic rites as harmless and utilized to strengthen the bond between members.
