witchcraft

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on women, imagination, creativity, witchcraft, hysteria, wisdom, and wise women

Our imagination is larger than the world around us; we go beyond our limits.  This used to be called 'witchcraft,' but fortunately things have changed, otherwise we would both already have been burned at the stake.  When they stopped burning women, science found an explanation for our behavior, normally referred to as 'female hysteria.'  We don't get burned anymore, but it does cause problems, especially in the workplace.  But don't worry, eventually they'll call it 'wisdom.'

A Quote by Lujan Matus on shamanism, carlos castaneda, dreaming, toltec, nagual, sorcery, spirituality, inspiration, shaman, and witchcraft

As we press upon one another with our intentions, From our hearts fly luminous butterflies, That intermingle and crossover to be absorbed. In abeyance our hearts await.

A Quote by Michael Crichton on science and witchcraft

The past history of human belief is a cautionary tale. We have killed thousands of our fellow human beings because we believed they had signed a contract with the devil, and had become witches. We still kill more than a thousand people each year for witchcraft. In my view, there is only one hope for humankind to emerge from what Carl Sagan called "the demon-haunted world" of our past. That hope is science.
