A Quote by Van Morrison on magic, time, and wonder

Don't lose the wonder in your eyes
It's right there when you smile...
If we go back, for a while
Let me go back, for a while
To that magic time

A Quote by Dave Matthews on dream, magic, mind, science, and wonder

A dream is a massive magic trick of the mind.  No amount of science could explain away the mysterious wonder.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on dragons, princesses, disguises, magic, reality, enchantment, and manifestation

We think, sometimes, there's not a dragon left.  Not one brave knight, not a single princess gliding through secret forests, enchanting deer and butterflies with her smile.
We think sometimes that ours is an age past frontiers, past adventures.  Destiny, it's way over the horizon; glowing shadows galloped past long ago, and gone.
What a pleasure to be wrong.  Princesses, knights, enchantments and dragons, mystery and adventure... not only are they here-and-now, they're all that ever lived on earth!
Our century, they've changed clothes, of course.  Dragons wear government-costumes, today, and failure-suits and disaster-outfits.  Society's demons screech, whirl down on us should we lift our eyes from the ground, dare we turn right at corners we've been told to turn left. So crafty have appearances become that princesses and knights can be hidden from each other, can be hidden from themselves.
Yet masters of reality still meet us in dreams to tell us that we've never lost the shield we need against dragons, that blue-fire voltage arcs through us now to change our world as we wish.  Intuition whispers true: We're not dust, we're magic!

Richard Bach (1936 -)

You can call it nostalgia, I don't mind
Standing on that windswept hillside
Listening to the church bells chime
Listen to the church bells chime
In that magic time...

Shivers up and down my spine
It's a feeling so divine
Let me go back for a while
Got to go back for a while
To that magic time...

A Quote by Montague Whitsel on awareness, imagination, life, magic, quest, self, soul, spirit, time, winter, and wisdom

Mid-December is thus one of the most positively magical times of the year.  Things are possible during December's darkening days that are not even dreamt of at other spokes of the Wheel of the Year.  We should use this magic as a vehicle for deepening our awareness of the world around us and preparing our souls for the ongoing pilgrimage of our lives.  A seeker of Wisdom in the thrall of Winter's Solstice should consider their celebrations as a spiritual pilgrimage or even a quest, during which, through the disciplined use of the spiritual imagination, he or she may encounter one's own truest self along the way and in communion with Spirit.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on magic and perception

It is the function of art to renew our perception.  What we are familiar with we cease to see.  The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and, as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it.

Anaïs Nin (1903 - 1977)

A Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on childhood, dream, light, and magic

Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new-created in all the freshness of childhood.
