Hermann Hesse
“The bird fights its way out of the egg. The egg is the world. Who would be born must first destroy a world. The bird flies to God. That God's name is Abraxas.”
Hermann Hesse, Demian: Die Geschichte von Emil Sinclairs Jugend

Anthon St. Maarten
“Never surrender your hopes and dreams to the fateful limitations others have placed on their own lives. The vision of your true destiny does not reside within the blinkered outlook of the naysayers and the doom prophets. Judge not by their words, but accept advice based on the evidence of actual results. Do not be surprised should you find a complete absence of anything mystical or miraculous in the manifested reality of those who are so eager to advise you. Friends and family who suffer the lack of abundance, joy, love, fulfillment and prosperity in their own lives really have no business imposing their self-limiting beliefs on your reality experience.”
Anthon St. Maarten

Pat Frayne
“Favorite Quotations.
I speak my mind because it hurts to bite my tongue.
The worth of a book is measured by what you carry away from it.
It's not over till it's over.
Imagination is everything.
All life is an experiment.
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls the butterfly.”
Pat Frayne, Tales of Topaz the Conjure Cat: Part I Topaz and the Evil Wizard & Part II Topaz and the Plum-Gista Stone

Nikki Rowe
“It wasn't exactly love at first sight, but it was deeper than that. A sense of belonging to a place I never knew I wanted but somehow always needed. It was a home that carried a heartbeat.”
Nikki Rowe

Brian Jacques
“I am that is, my sword shall wield for me.”
Brian Jacques, Redwall

Tom Robbins
“Religion is nothing but institutionalized mysticism. The catch is, mysticism does not lend itself to institutionalization. The moment we attempt to organize mysticism, we destroy its essence. Religion, then, is mysticism in which the mystical has been killed. Or, at least diminished.”
Tom Robbins, Skinny Legs and All

Ludwig Wittgenstein
“The mystical is not how the world is, but that it is.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein

“Fear has always been a very important whistleblower. Our emotion and our history can provoke fear that may arrest us at any time or at any place. Above and beyond, fear might be contagious and its scent, sometimes sensual, sometimes mystical or animal, can exude the musty and arcane smell of destiny. ("One could still feel the smell of fear" )”
Erik Pevernagie

Nikki Rowe
“Everything seemed possible, when I looked through they eyes of a child.
And every once in a while; I remember,
I still have the chance to be that wild.”
Nikki Rowe

Brian Froud
“Perhaps all women are part faerie, for what woman can deny her faerie blood when the portals to her own land are open; when the full moon sings its insistent song; when sorrow and passion and rage pulse through her body at moon times. This is why women are the chosen ones of Faerie, pat of the vibrant, fluid, emotional soul of the world…”
Brian Froud, Brian Froud's World of Faerie

Sanober  Khan
“Love, be
mystical

as the flickering
blue flame
of night

as the fully-awoken
moon

beneath cobwebs
of passing clouds

amidst chanting
high-tides

fuzzy,
as my blanket

big enough
to illuminate a hundred
thousand billion galaxies

and just small enough to fit
into my embrace.”
Sanober Khan, Turquoise Silence

George Orwell
“The words kept coming back to him, statement of a mystical truth and a palpable absurdity.”
George Orwell, 1984

Brendan Myers
“To my mind, ‘magic’ is the hard-to-define quality of the things that stir up mystical feelings like amazement, curiosity, imagination, and above all wonder.

Magic is that which renders something beautiful in a spiritual sense. It is that which makes one feel as if the world is more than it is presently understood to be, and yet at the same time the world is working itself out in a good and beautiful way.

Magic underlies the relationship between us, and the greater immensities of birth and death. Thus the experience of being in the presence of something magical is an empowering, uplifting experience. Magic, understood this way, contributes meaning to life.

Brendan Myers

Ana Claudia Antunes
“Like the moon shining bright
Up high with all its grace,
I can only show you at night
And hide half of my face.”
Ana Claudia Antunes, Pierrot & Columbine

Tamara Rendell
“Dreams are like the old stories where wolves are seekers always running, and women carry fire in their bare hands and light the dark paths before them.
Old stories hold that the birds will fly all the miles of the world to tell your secrets to the rising moon, and men will walk over oceans of ice to find one truth.”
Tamara Rendell, Mystical Tides

Tamara Rendell
“WINTER'S GHOST:
Autumn moon
incautious in the dark river
Winter’s ghost walks
with a covered face
and silver bones wait in all animals
to be bone cloth upon her shoulder
wait for her happiness in that they are silver”
Tamara Rendell, Mystical Tides

Jack Gilbert
“Duende

I can't remember her name.
It's not as though I've been in bed
with that many women.
The truth is I can't even remember
her face. I kind of know how strong
her thighs were, and her beauty.
But what I won't forget
is the way she tore open
the barbecued chicken with her hands,
and wiped the grease on her breasts.”
Jack Gilbert

Rahma Krambo
“Marco could not have known about the mystical effect of a full moon on cats and books left on their own in the library. Not until he saw the lines breathe, the words unveiled.”
Rahma Krambo, Guardian Cats and the Lost Books of Alexandria

Crystal Woods
“As in most fairy tales, there's a prince and a princess, dragons and some magic, and the feeling it gives you that anything is possible if we could stay this way forever.”
Crystal Woods, Write like no one is reading

Ana Claudia Antunes
“It's all a series of serendipities
with no beginnings and no ends.
Such infinitesimal possibilities
Through which love transcends.”
Ana Claudia Antunes, The Tao of Physical and Spiritual

Walter Isaacson
“Jobs had begun to drop acid by then, and he turned Brennan on to it as well, in a wheat field just outside Sunnyvale. "It was great," he recalled. "I had been listening to a lot of Bach. All of a sudden the whole field was playing Bach. It was the most wonderful feeling of my life up to that point. I felt like the conductor of this symphony with Bach coming through the wheat.”
Walter Isaacson, Steve Jobs

John Cowper Powys
“There occurred within a causal radius of Brandon Station one of those infinitesimal ripples in the creative silence of the First Cause. In the soul of the great blazing sun there were complicated superhuman vibrations [connected] ... with the feelings of a few intellectual sages who had enough imagination to recognise the conscious personality of this fiery orb as it flung far and wide its life-giving magnetic forces. Roaring, cresting, heaving, gathering, mounting, advancing, receding, the enormous fire-thoughts of this huge luminary surged relentlessly to and fro, evoking a turbulent aura of psychic activity.”
John Cowper Powys, A Glastonbury Romance

Vanessa Fewings
“Consider the coincidences that you do not see." - Fabian Snowstrom, A Vampire's Reckoning”
V.M.K. Fewings, A Vampire's Reckoning

Helene Cardona
“I now wear the memory of nothingness
a piece of white sail wrapped like second skin.”
Helene Cardona, Life in Suspension: La Vie Suspendue

Helene Cardona
“I become ocean, mercury, silver
shimmers, fairy tales, fascinated.”
Helene Cardona, Life in Suspension: La Vie Suspendue

Tamara Rendell
“You were the ocean
and we were the land
You lay down unflinching
You lay down forgetting
And you were the ocean
and we were the land”
Tamara Rendell, Mystical Tides

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Birds are magical.
Their flight alone can arouse a clever thought.”
Michael Bassey Johnson, Song of a Nature Lover

Pratik  Mishra
“We lived a moment without wishes.”
Pratik Mishra, A Thousand Places

A.D. Aliwat
“To most people down there, they seem like everything. Clouds. They seem mystical and very important. As if they carry out God’s will.”
