„That books do not take the place of experience, and that learning is no substitute for genius, are two kindred phenomena; their common ground is that the abstract can never take the place of the perceptive.“

„The composition and distribution of this book is thus an act of Magick by which I cause Changes to take place in conformity with my Will.“

—  Aleister Crowley poet, mountaineer, occultist 1875 - 1947

Introduction.
Magick Book IV : Liber ABA, Part III : Magick in Theory and Practice (1929)
Контексте: Magick is the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will.
(Illustration: It is my Will to inform the World of certain facts within my knowledge. I therefore take "magical weapons", pen, ink, and paper; I write "incantations" — these sentences — in the "magical language" ie, that which is understood by the people I wish to instruct; I call forth "spirits", such as printers, publishers, booksellers and so forth and constrain them to convey my message to those people. The composition and distribution of this book is thus an act of Magick by which I cause Changes to take place in conformity with my Will.)
In one sense Magick may be defined as the name given to Science by the vulgar.

„Inspiration comes from many places — experiences, places, people, books, and the work of other artists.“

—  Dawud Wharnsby Canadian musician 1972

The Sounds of Taqwa (2006)
Контексте: Inspiration comes from many places — experiences, places, people, books, and the work of other artists. As a writer, it is important to keep one’s senses open to the world around and then trying to capture those impressions to a page. Writing is sort of a game or puzzle to me — playing with words and concepts to present something new to listeners.
