The Anti-Bartlett's

My three favorite quotations from Pagans and occultists of note:

"The student who sets out to be an eclectic before he has made himself an expert will never be anything more than a dabbler." -Dion Fortune

"All ancient mysteries were selective in their admission of new members. This must be so to preserve the power, the integrity, the purpose of the cult. Thinning the blood makes it weaker; spreading the secret truths too far afield lessens their impacts where they are most needed." -Hans Holzer

"I feel friendly to you, whoever you are." -Olivia Robertson

Honorable mention:

"I'm a Witch, for Christ's sake, not a goddamned saint." -Yvonne Rathbone

If anyone took the Fortune quote seriously it would transform this frickin community.

I know, right? And if they took it seriously in conjunction with the Robertson quote...

Ah, to dream. The locals are up in arms right now. Business as usual.

Dude! Try typing your blog address in, but invert the "p" and the "s" in blogspot. You'll see some stuff.
