Arthur Edward Waite was a scholarly mystic who wrote extensively on occult and esoteric matters, and was the co-creator of the Rider-Waite Tarot deck. As his biographer, R.A. Gilbert described him, "Waite's name has survived because he was the first to attempt a systematic study of the history of western occultism←viewed as a spiritual tradition rather than as aspects of proto-science or as the pathology of religion."

Quotes by Arthur Edward Waite  (?)

“A winged angel, with the sign of the sun upon his forehead and on his breast the square and triangle of the septenary. I speak of him in the masculine sense, but the figure is neither male nor female. It is held to be pouring the essences of life from chalice to chalice. It has one foot upon the earth and one upon waters, thus illustrating the nature of the essences. A direct path goes up to certain heights on the verge of the horizon, and above there is a great light, through which a crown is seen vaguely. Hereof is some part of the Secret of Eternal Life, as it is possible to man in his incarnation. All the conventional emblems are renounced herein.”
Arthur Edward Waite, The Pictorial Key to the Tarot

“pictures are like doors which open into unexpected chambers,”
Arthur Edward Waite, Pictorial Key to the Tarot

“The true Tarot is symbolism; it speaks no other language and offers no other signs.”
Arthur Edward Waite
