"a misfit, a wolf in shepherd’s clothing and one of the end-time agents of the devil sent to lead astray those who would have believed in God."peter jasper (archbishop) akinola
Evil men of every degree will use you, flatter you, lead you on until you are useless; then, if the virtuous do not pity you, or God compassionate, you are without a friend in the universe.henry ward beecher
Every possible effort should be made to stop recruiting for the Armed Forces. This may, and probably would, lead to some form of conscription being proposed or introduced. Thus would be provided a most favourable political platform upon which to fight the National Government.stafford cripps
We cannot avoid conflict, conflict with society, other individuals and with oneself.

A fanciful and flowery and heated imagination beware of; because the things of God are of deep import; and time, and experience, and careful and ponderous and solemn thoughts can only find them out.

Religion, mysticism and magic all spring from the same basic 'feeling' about the universe: a sudden feeling of meaning , which human beings sometimes 'pick up' accidentally, as your radio might pick up some unknown station.
