“I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store;

For Life is just an employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial's hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have paid.”
Jessie B. Rittenhouse

David Abram
“Magic doesn't sweep you away; it gathers you up into the body of the present moment so thoroughly that all your explanations fall away: the ordinary, in all its plain and simple outrageousness, begins to shine -- to become luminously, impossibly so. Every facet of the world is awake, and you within it.”
David Abram, Becoming Animal: An Earthly Cosmology

T.S. Eliot
“Whatever you think, be sure it is what you think; whatever you want, be sure that is what you want; whatever you feel, be sure that is what you feel.”
T.S. Eliot

Naomi Wolf
“Are women beautiful or aren't we?”
Naomi Wolf, The Beauty Myth

“And the people believe, because Julian lets them believe... he does not force, suggest, tease, prod -- he lets them believe, he draws margins over which he knows their minds can jump, he unscrews hinges on all the doors.”
Gwendolyn MacEwen, Julian the Magician
