Occult Quotations

The road to freedom lies not through mysteries or occult performances, but through the intelligent use of natural forces and laws.
Ernest Holmes

Karl Marx

Alice Morse Earle

Followers of the occult believe in only what they already know, and in those things that confirm what they have already learned.
