“Mistress of love or of hate, occult science can dispense paradise or hell at its pleasure to human hearts; it disposes of all forms and confers beauty or ugliness; with the wand of Circe it changes men into brutes and animals alternately into men.”

– Eliphas Levi. Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie. Part I: The Doctrine of Transcendental Magic. p.1 (Translation: A.E Waite. Transcription 2001: Benjamin Rowe).
