Let the church come to God in the strength of a perfect weakness, in the power of a felt helplessness and a child-like confidence, and then, either she has no strength, and has no right to be, or she has a strength that is infinite.

There is nothing but God, nothing but the Goddess, nothing but Spirit in all directions, and not a grain of sand, not a speck of dust, is more or less Spirit than any other.

It's not my style, but if it's other people's [style], that's perfect."
But the worst slaughter, though with least hullabaloo Suffered hens.

He each bird in turn throttled and in one heap stacked, perfect poultry, which never for pearl barley lacked.
