Quotes Christopher Liked

Austin Osman Spare
“Others believe in prayer . . . . have not all yet learnt, that to ask it to be denied? Let it be the root of your Gospel. Oh, ye who are living other peoples lives! Unless desire is subconscious, it is not fulfilled, no, not in this life. Then verily sleep is better than prayer. Quiescence is hidden desire, a form of "not asking"; by it the female obtains much from man.”
Austin Osman Spare, The Book of Pleasure (Self-Love): The Psychology of Ecstasy
