witches

A Quote by Elder Cleopa on god, christianity, protection, magic, witches, victory, freedom, truth, life, and peace

Do not do anything without signing yourself with the sign of the Cross!  When you depart on a journey, when you begin your work, when you go to study, when you are alone, and when you are with other people, seal yourself with the Holy Cross on your forehead, your body, your chest, your heart, your lips, your eyes, your ears.  All of you should be sealed with the sign of Christ's victory over hell.  Then you will no longer be afraid of charms, evil spirits, or sorcery, because these are dissolved by the power of the Cross like wax before fire and like dust before the wind"
Elder Cleopa (+1998)

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on afraid, dark, witches, christianity, and candles

I believe that men are generally still a little afraid of the dark, though the witches are all hung, and Christianity and candles have been introduced.

A Quote by Jeanette Winterson on stories, storytelling, women, princesses, witches, stepmothers, mermaids, fairy godmothers, wickedness, and beauty

Tell me the story...
It was a woman.
You always say that.
There's always a woman somewhere, child; a princess, a witch, a stepmother, a mermaid, a fairy godmother, or one as wicked as she is beautiful, or as beautiful as she is good.
Is that the complete list?
Then there is the woman you love.
Who's she?
That's another story.
