While serving as a missionary in Scotland, David O. McKay had an experience that gave him the motto he used for the rest of his life... “What E’re Thou Art, Act Well Thy Part.” After he and his companion returned from visiting Stirling Castle, they passed a building where, above the door was a stone with the carved inscription: "What-e'er thou art, act well thy part." This message struck David O. McKay forcefully, and he decided to devote himself completely to always doing his best in whatever responsibility he had.

 

There is also a riddle associated with the symbols, known as a magic square, each shape has a numerical value.  The sum of the sides of each shape in any direction will equal 18.  If the shapes were rearranged or for example a triangle was in place of a square of this would not be so.  In correlation with the phrase "What ere thou art act well thy part" if everyone in an organization fulfills their responsibility or "part" giving a full measure or 100% then the whole will function perfectly.
