"The world is not at all what it appears to be. Every solid object is made of whirling atoms. Everything is in movement - has colour, has sound. Nothing dies. Everything changes. There are Beings,potencies, powers, love infinite and in so many forms you would melt with ecstasy if you could know them all. You can call these Guardian Angels, Extra-Terrestrial Intelligencies, Spirits, or whatever you like. Magic knows that you have friends everywhere, that the Universe is conspiring to help you fulfill your dream, that blossoming, flowering and radiating your best is what you were always meant to do, and that life and Spirit and all these Beings around you are ready to help you - at any time. All you have to do is ask."

"Ask and you shall receive."

  • Victor Hugo "It is nothing to die. It is frightful not to live."
  • Jean-Luc Godard "Objects exist and if one pays more attention to them than to people, it is precisely because they exist more than the people. Dead objects are still alive. Living people are often already dead."
  • Oscar Wilde "Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault./Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only beauty."
