Famous quotes containing the word scroll:

    This is the Scroll of Thoth. Herein are set down the magic words by which Isis raised Osiris from the dead. Oh! Amon-Ra—Oh! God of Gods—Death is but the doorway to new life—We live today-we shall live again—In many forms shall we return-Oh, mighty one.
    John L. Balderston (1899–1954)

    I am the scroll of the poet behind which samurai swords are being sharpened.
