Famous quotes containing the word mystic:

    I have no mystic faith in the people. I have in the individual.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    The mystic purchases a moment of exhilaration with a lifetime of confusion; and the confusion is infectious and destructive. It is confusing and destructive to try and explain anything in terms of anything else, poetry in terms of psychology.
    Basil Bunting (1900–1985)

    Uncontrolled, the hunger and thirst after God may become an obstacle, cutting off the soul from what it desires. If a man would travel far along the mystic road, he must learn to desire God intensely but in stillness, passively and yet with all his heart and mind and strength.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
