A Club 
                 
"Is a haven of refuge and accord in a world torn by strife and discord: 
         
Is a place where people of quality gather to have fun and make friends:
                
Is a place of courtesy, good breeding and good manners: 
                   
Is a place expressly for camaraderie, merriment, good cheer and good will:
              
It humbles the mighty, draws out the timid, and casts out the sorehead:
                        
And is one of the noblest inventions of mankind! "
