“Each rune is a complete representation of wyrd. Just as one drop of water reflects a perfect image of all that is around it, so each rune reflects the totality of wyrd. The rhythm of wyrd may be observed at all levels, whether it be the movement of the stars across the sky or the cutting of shapes into a patch of earth.”
Brian Bates, The Way of Wyrd

“us to comprehend, for we are ourselves part of wyrd and cannot stand back to observe it as if it were a separate force.”
Brian Bates, The Way of Wyrd

“Thoughts are like raindrops,’ he persisted, introducing yet another of his interminable images. ‘They fall, make a splash and then dry up. But the world of wyrd is like the mighty oceans from which raindrops arise and to which they return in rivers and streams.”
Brian Bates, The Way of Wyrd
