Mark Twain
“You see, he was going for the Holy Grail. The boys all took a flier at the Holy Grail now and then. It was a several years' cruise. They always put in the long absence snooping around, in the most conscientious way, though none of them had any idea where the Holy Grail really was, and I don't think any of them actually expected to find it, or would have known what to do with it if he had run across it.”
Mark Twain, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

“They were nothing more than modern day pagan worshippers. Congregants of a religion built on greed and hedonism. The trading floor served as their shrine; the phones as their Holy Grail; and the clients as the prophets who would entitle them to choose between putting the next down payment on a Lamborghini or a Mercedes”
Soroosh Shahrivar, The Rise of Shams

Bernard Cornwell

Bernard Cornwell, Heretic

“In order to create light you must first live in light.”
Phoenix, Forgiveness: The Process of Creation that Replaces Darkness with Light

Thomas Pynchon
“We drank the blood of our enemies. That's why you see Gnostics so hunted. The sacrament of the Eucharist is really drinking the blood of the enemy. The Grail, the Sangraal, is the bloody vehicle. Why else guard it so sacredly? Why should the black honor-guard ride half a continent, half a splintering Empire, stone night and winter day, if it's only for the touch of sweet lips on a humble bowl? No, it's mortal sin they're carrying: to swallow the enemy, down into the slick juicery to be taken in by all the cells. Your officially defined 'mortal sin,' that is. A sin against you. A section of your penal code, that's all.”
Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow

“The stock exchange is a poor substitute for the Holy Grail,” warned Schumpeter, who added that the middle class is “rationalist and unheroic.” In fact, middle class man “can only use rationalist and unheroic means to defend his position or to bend a nation to his will.” These are disturbing words for Americans, who are egalitarians to the core. The notion that “all men are created equal” is branded into our consciousness. But let us be honest for a moment. Men are hardly created equal in reality. If you factored in education and training, men would not long remain equal even if they were created so. Some are naturally gifted from childhood. Some benefit from hard training and long study. It used to be that aristocracy, under the best circumstances, was a training in
leadership that would begin at infancy. What we are now left to is the training of opportunists by state functionaries.”
J.R.Nyquist

Laurence Galian
“In regard to its identity in the Holy Grail legends, the Chintamani Stone appears to be synonymous with the Stone of Heaven, the manifestation of the Holy Grail mentioned by Wolfram von Eschenbach in his famous Grail rendition known as 'Parzival,' which is regarded by most Grail scholars to be the most complete and authoritative of the Grail legends.”
Laurence Galian, 666: Connection with Crowley

“I can assure you, to have the carnal Holy Grail snatched from you at the very moment your lips were about to touch its rim is something that will torture your mind forever. Your wild imaginings about what you were just about to experience will haunt you until death.”
Mark Romel, The Mistletoe Murders: A Nietzschean Murder Mystery

“God, far from being alien to us, far from being a distant deity, is inside us all. Our mission is to find him within us, to release our inner divinity. It is not anyone else we should be worshiping, but our own highest capabilities. That is the great test with which we are confronted... do we have the courage and knowledge to look to ourselves rather than external “gods” ? Can we find our divine spark? That is the Holy Grail, the most sacred and spiritual object of all. The quest for the Holy Grail is the most difficult conceivable.”
Brother Abaris, The Illuminist Army

“The Faustian knows that no one is coming to save him. He must save himself. He will try anything, go anywhere, in his quest for the Holy Grail. He commits himself unreservedly to the greatest cause of all – to discover the innermost secrets of creation. And only one person possesses those secrets: God. And that is Faust’s sacred and infinitely inspiring quest – to become God himself. He is the Nietzschean Superman. He has no limits, he bows to no false prophets, he needs no ancient books full of rules and commandments and silly parables and stories.”
Michael Faust, The Right-Brain God

“Read Nietzsche. Reject all mainstream religions. Your objective is not to worship God, but to become God. Only God has all the answers to the mysteries of life. Therefore if you truly seek those answers then you are seeking the ultimate secret: how to transform yourself into God. It is precisely with this quest that the Philosopher’s Stone and the Holy Grail are intimately involved. That is why they have supreme spiritual power, why they command such enduring fascination.”
Michael Faust, Eastern Religion For Western Gnostics

“Are you capable of flying, or will you stay grounded like all the others, too scared to break free from the herd and become what you have it in you to be? What is the Holy Grail? You are, if you choose it to be so!”
Michael Faust, How to Become God

“The Promethean = the Faustian = the eternal seeker = the eternal wanderer = the eternal quester. The Promethean is a romantic, a striving figure, an outsider, a non-conformist. He’s often alone. Conventional society has rejected him and, more importantly, he has rejected conventional society. The HyperHuman plays the Great Game – the God Game. His objective it to transform himself into God ... to undergo the ultimate metamorphosis. The HyperHuman is a new kind of knight, a knight of the mind. He seeks to merit the title of “knight” and lives courageously by a noble code. His life has total focus and purpose. His mind is always focused on the Holy Grail. The search for the Grail is the symbol of the HyperHuman’s search for heaven, for God, to become God.”
Mike Hockney, HyperHumanity

“America, to redeem itself, needs the Grail … the Grail of people power. Rise up, Americans. Free yourselves of the tyrants who oppress you. Reclaim your land. Remove the curse. Turn the Wasteland into an Oasis. Give every American a proper chance to go as far as their talents deserve. Throw open every door that the elite have closed with their inheritance and privilege, with their nepotism and cronyism. A new America is needed. No one needs to go back to the American past. True American greatness lies in the future.”
Mark Romel, The Wasteland: America's Search for Redemption

“The Faustians and Luciferians are those who pursue the greatest challenges of all. They seek the Holy Grail, the Philosopher’s Stone, the River of Life, the Fountain of Youth, the Tree of Knowledge, the means to turn base metal into gold. They seek to sit in God’s throne and wear his crown. Why not? He has sat there long enough.”
Mark Romel, Strange World: Why People Are Getting Weirder

“I know people who repeatedly jump from one guru to the next in search of the Holy Grail of trading. Of course, it doesn’t exist, but you need to know this fact to stop looking for it.”
Naved Abdali
