“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

“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

“You are labelling pieces of the world with words, then confusing your word-hoard for the totality of life.”
Brian Bates, The Way of Wyrd
