Aleister Crowley Quote: “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 Quote: “The True Will is thus both determined by its equations, and free because those equation are simply its own name, spelt out fully.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “Chinese civilisation is so systematic that wild animals have been abolished on principle.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “Indubitably, magic is one of the subtlest and most difficult of the sciences and arts. There is more opportunity for errors of comprehension, judgment and practice than in any other branch of physics.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “There are hardly half a dozen writers in England today who have not sold out to the enemy. Even when their good work has been a success, Mammon grips them and whispers: More money for more work.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “Part of the public horror of sexual irregularity so-called is due to the fact that everyone knows himself essentially guilty.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “The priestess of Artemis took hold of her almost with the violence of a lover, and whisked her away into a languid ecstasy of reverie. She communicated her own enthusiasm to the girl, and kept her mind occupied with dreams, faery-fervid, of uncharted seas of glory on which her galleon might sail, undiscovered countries of spice and sweetness, Eldorado and Utopia and the City of God.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “All questions of the Law are to be decided only by appeal to my writings, each for himself.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “To use legal or financial constraint to compel either abstention or submission, is entirely horrible, unnatural and absurd.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “Her cheeks were bright with a soft vermilion of the pomegranate mingling with the whiteness of the lily.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “When one walks, one is brought into touch first of all with the essential relations between one’s physical powers and the character of the country; one is compelled to see it as its natives do. Then every man one meets is an individual.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “It is a sort of sinister warning that there is some person or some thing in the Universe outside oneself: and the realisation of that is as frankly frightening as the other realisation, that one is eternally alone, is horrible.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “If I were a dog,′ he said to me once, ‘I should bark. If I were an owl, I should hoot. There’s nothing in either which is good or bad in itself. The only question is, what is the natural gesture?’ He thinks it his mission in the world to establish this Law of Thelema.” She saw my puzzled look. ” ‘Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law,‘” she quoted merrily. “You must have heard those words before!”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “All this is true and false; and it is true and false to say that it is true and false.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “Some men are born sodomites, some achieve sodomy, and some have sodomy thrust upon them...”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “It is as if the first diviner of absinthe had been indeed a magician intent upon a combination of sacred drugs which should cleanse, fortify and perfume the human soul.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “We can no longer assert any single proposition, unless we guard ourselves by enumerating countless conditions which must be assumed.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “I thought I would stand myself a little dinner. I hadn’t quite enough sense to know that what I really wanted was human companions. There aren’t such things. Every man is eternally alone. But when you get mixed up with a fairly decent crowd, you forget that appalling fact for long enough to give your brain time to recover from the acute symptoms of its disease – that of thinking.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “Further, an excess of legislation defeats its own ends. It makes the whole population criminals, and turns them all into police and police spies. The moral health of such a people is ruined for ever; only revolution can save it.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “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 Quote: “Directly a man begins to say “Yes” without the question “Why?” he becomes a dogmatist, a potential, if not an actual liar.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “If Osiris, Christ, and Mahomet were mad, then indeed is madness the key to the door of the Temple.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “Do not imagine that art or anything else is other than high magic! – is a system of holy hieroglyph. The artist, the initiate, thus frames his mysteries. The rest of the world scoff, or seek to understand, or pretend to understand; some few obtain the truth.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “When we’ve all finished talking, there’s something that never utters a word, but goes right down through the earth, plumb to the centre.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “Beauty is itself so unattainable that it escapes altogether; and the true artist, like the true Mystic, can never rest.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “And allow me again to assure you that when you’ve got yourself going, doing your True Will, you won’t find you have any time to get bored.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “The proper formation and consecration of the Eucharist requires careful attention. The Objects of the Working must be chosen systematically. My own Record has all the faults of pioneer work: it contains much to avoid. There must be proper tabulation of the Experiments, and strictly scientific observation. Sentimentality, sexual or spiritual, must be sternly suppressed. Compliance with these conventions should assure a success far greater than I have myself attained.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “Look at the testimony of literature. In the days of chivalry our sympathies go with the Knight-errant, who redresses wrongs; with the King, whose courage and wisdom deliver his people from their enemies. But when Kingship became tyranny, and feudalism oppression, we took our heroes from the rebels. Robin Hood, Hereward the Wake, Bonnie Prince Charlie, Rob Roy; it was always the Under Dog that appealed to the artist.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “For the first time in my life I was being absolutely myself, freed from all inhibitions of body, intellect and training... I seem to remember asking myself if I was insane and answering “Of course I am-sanity is a compromise. Sanity is the thing that keeps one back.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “Shallow thinkers always seem to be obsessed by the stupidity that if anything is a shadow, dream, illusion, it ceases to exist.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “The mystic’s idea of deliberately stupefying and stultifying himself is an “abomination unto the Lord.” This, by the way, does not conflict with the rules of Yoga. That kind of suppression is comparable to the restrictions in athletic training, or diet in sickness.”
Aleister Crowley Quote: “The Sorcerer may be – indeed he usually is – a thwarted disappointed man whose aims are perfectly natural. Often enough, his real trouble is ignorance; and by the time he has become fairly hot stuff as a Black Magician, he has learnt that he is getting nowhere, and finds himself, despite himself, on the True Path of the Wise.”
