    And graven with diamonds in letters plain
    There is written her fair neck round about:
    “Noli me tangere for Caesar’s I am,
    And wild for to hold though I seem tame.”
    Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503?–1542)

    Not to these shores she came! this other Thrace,
    Environ barbarous to the royal Attic;
    How could her delicate dirge run democratic,
    Delivered in a cloudless boundless public place
    To an inordinate race?
    John Crowe Ransom (1888–1974)

    In a number of other cultures, fathers are not relegated to babysitter status, nor is their ability to be primary nurturers so readily dismissed.... We have evidence that in our own society men can rear and nurture their children competently and that men’s methods, although different from those of women, are imaginative and constructive.
    Kyle D. Pruett (20th century)

    Indubitably, Magick is one of the subtlest and most difficult of the sciences and arts. There is more opportunity for errors of comprehension, judgement and practice than in any other branch of physics.
    Aleister Crowley (1875–1947)
