Carolyn MacCullough
“I was born on the night of Samhain, when the barrier between the worlds is whisper-thin and when magic, old magic, sings its heady and sweet song to anyone who cares to hear it.”
Carolyn MacCullough, Once a Witch

Anthon St. Maarten
“Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass - to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.”
Anthon St. Maarten

Aleister Crowley
“I've often thought that there isn't any "I" at all; that we are simply the means of expression of something else; that when we think we are ourselves, we are simply the victims of a delusion.”
Aleister Crowley, Diary of a Drug Fiend

Nathan Reese Maher
“All is as if the world did cease to exist. The city's monuments go unseen, its past unheard, and its culture slowly fading in the dismal sea.”
Nathan Reese Maher

Zeena Schreck
“Shapeshifting requires the ability to transcend your attachments, in particular your ego attachments to identity and who you are. If you can get over your attachment to labeling yourself and your cherishing of your identity, you can be virtually anybody. You can slip in and out of different shells, even different animal forms or deity forms.”
Zeena Schreck

Aleister Crowley
“In this book it is spoken of the Sephiroth and the Paths; of Spirits and Conjurations; of Gods, Spheres, Planes, and many other things which may or may not exist. It is immaterial whether these exist or not. By doing certain things certain results will follow; students are most earnestly warned against attributing objective reality or philosophic validity to any of them.”
Aleister Crowley, Magick in Theory and Practice

Phil Hine
“One cannot shape the world without being reshaped in the process. Each gain of power requires its own sacrifice.”
Phil Hine, Condensed Chaos: An Introduction to Chaos Magic

Michael W. Ford
“Black Magick is the process of self-transformation through an antinomian initiatory structure, Black meaning the hidden wisdom, power of darkness, dreams and staging the reality you wish and Magick being the process to ascend, become immortal in spirit.”
Michael W. Ford, Adamu - Luciferian Tantra and Sex Magick

Anthon St. Maarten
“In this lifetime we are like Superman who must remain disguised as the nerdy newspaper journalist Clark Kent, or Harry Potter and his friends who are not allowed to do magic while they are on holiday, away from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry... but even Harry Potter and Clark Kent get to tap into their ‘special powers’ once in a while, especially when the going gets tough.”
Anthon St. Maarten, Divine Living: The Essential Guide To Your True Destiny

Alan Moore
“The disciplines of physical exercise, meditation and study aren't terribly esoteric. The means to attain a capability far beyond that of the so-called ordinary person are within the reach of everyone, if their desire and their will are strong enough. I have studied science, art, religion and a hundred different philosophies. Anyone could do as much. By applying what you learn and ordering your thoughts in an intelligent manner it is possible to accomplish almost anything. Possible for an 'ordinary person.' There's a notion I'd like to see buried: the ordinary person. Ridiculous. There is no ordinary person.”
Alan Moore, Watchmen

Dacha Avelin
“Witches listen to the secrets of the Earth, work in harmony with the powers of the moon and understand the longings of the human soul.”
Dacha Avelin

Rainbow Rowell
“He smiles, and he's made of trouble. We should have dropped him in the Thames in a bag of stones. We should have left him out for the fairies.”
Rainbow Rowell, Carry On

Aleister Crowley
“Indubitably, Magick is one of the subtlest and most difficult of the sciences and arts. There is more opportunity for errors of comprehension, judgement and practice than in any other branch of physics.”
Aleister Crowley, The Confessions of Aleister Crowley: An Autohagiography

Peter J. Carroll
“There is no part of one’s beliefs about oneself which cannot be modified by sufficiently powerful psychological techniques. There is nothing about oneself which cannot be taken away or changed. The proper stimuli can, if correctly applied, turn communists into fascists, saints into devils, the meek into heroes, and vice-versa. There is no sovereign sanctuary within ourseles which represents our real nature. There is nobody at home in the internal fortress. Everything we cherish as our ego, everything we believe in, is just what we have cobbled together out of the accident of our birth and subsequent experiences. With drugs, brainwashing, and other techniques of extreme persuasion, we can quite readily make a man a devotee of a different ideology, the patriot of a different country, or the follower of a different religion.”
Peter J. Carroll

Dacha Avelin
“Magick happens when you step into who you truly are and embrace that which fulfills your soul.”
Dacha Avelin, Embracing Your Inner Witch: The Maidens Guide to Old World Witchcraft

Dacha Avelin
“Witches do not need to fix problems.
Witches fix the enegery AROUND problems.
Then the problems fix themselves.”

Nikolas Schreck
“Left hand path magick is generally socially unacceptable.”
Nikolas Schreck

“The mystery religions were instituted in order to protect the marvels of the commonplace from those who would devalue them.”
Peter Redgrove, The Black Goddess and the Unseen Real: Our Uncommon Senses and Their Common Sense

“To comprehend Crowley, one must comprehend what he meant by "Magick"—the "discredited" tradition he swore to "rehabilitate."

Magick, for Crowley, is a way of life that takes in every facet of life. The keys to attainment within the magical tradition lie in the proper training of the human psyche itself—more specifically, in the development of the powers of will and imagination. The training of the will—which Crowley so stressed, thus placing himself squarely within that tradition—is the focusing of one's energy, one's essential being. The imagination provides, as it were, the target for this focus, by its capacity to ardently envision—and hence bring into magical being—possibilities and states beyond those of consensual reality. The will and imagination must work synergistically. For the will, unilluminated by imagination, becomes a barren tool of earthly pursuits. And the imagination, ungoverned by a striving will, lapses into idle dreams and stupor.”
Lawrence Sutin, Do What Thou Wilt: A Life of Aleister Crowley

Lon Milo DuQuette
“It is only by working the rituals, that any significant degree of understanding can develop. If you wait until you are positive you understand all aspects of the ceremony before beginning to work, you will never begin to work.”
Lon Milo DuQuette, The Magick of Aleister Crowley: A Handbook of the Rituals of Thelema

Dacha Avelin
“For centuries we have been ripped apart by the hands of others as well as ourselves. Our personalities have been conditioned to become disconnected from our most Earthly ancestral knowledge. The days of disconnectedness are over. We must begin anew.”
Dacha Avelin

Dacha Avelin
“A witch does not need to fix problems. She fixes the energy AROUND problems. Then the problems fix themselves…”
Dacha Avelin, Embracing Your Inner Witch: The Maidens Guide to Old World Witchcraft

Philip Carr-Gomm
“The risks involved in the pursuit of magic are--put simply--either getting frightened by unpleasant perceptions or becoming deluded. Unfortunately it is possible to suffer from both symptoms at the same time.”
Philip Carr-Gomm, The Book of English Magic

Dacha Avelin
“You are the most powerful tool in your life. Use your energy, your thoughts and your magick wisely!”
Dacha Avelin, Embracing Your Inner Witch: The Maidens Guide to Old World Witchcraft

Dacha Avelin
“Magick is an art; using reality and the world as its canvas.”
Dacha Avelin, Old World Witchcraft: Pathway To Effective Magick

Dacha Avelin
“There is no such thing as White Magick or Black Magick. If you are participating in magick, you are interfering with the natural order of how life would have developed without your hand in it. You are manipulating reality to suit your own personal needs. Regardless of whether you perceive it as "positive" or "white light", you are manipulating life. If you are afraid of this responsibly or are intimidated by this statement, I encourage you to reexamine your belief structure. Witchcraft requires confidence and courage.”
Dacha Avelin, Old World Witchcraft: Pathway To Effective Magick

“Sacred space is not just an external place. It is an internal place as well.”
Mat Auryn, Psychic Witch: A Metaphysical Guide to Meditation, Magick & Manifestation

Mat Auryn
“What we do internally affects the world around us and the world around us affects our inner world. With this notion, nothing is separate, and our inner and outer worlds are intricately tied to one another.”
Mat Auryn, Psychic Witch: A Metaphysical Guide to Meditation, Magick & Manifestation

“The deepest of powers are often the most subtle. Something that most fail to realize... ☥”
