It appears that one's that have made up their mind what "truth" is, care
less about the motto is. May be when they discover real truth, they may
have a nervous breakdown. May be this kind of approach may be one of the
reasons for lack of vitality in theosophical organizations and perhaps the
dwindling membership.
