"To those of you who will begin, as I did, at an early age to be interested in creative effort, I have a word or two to say: Follow no one. Only you can lead yourself. Be open-minded and ready to reject every extraneous influence. Use your own. Talk is cheap; let others talk. Pay no attention to them or to me. Shun them and me with your self discipline. Value your freedom from the shackles of the straight jacket. A rose is a rose regardless of its position in the bush. Approach your line of activity as an individual. Be independent. There is but one law to obey, the law of freedom; and obedience to that law is liberty." - Aleister Crowley, The Revival of Magick, p. 212

Crowley on Creativity - Empty LJ's bleeding everywhere

Hey didn't I see this on LJ this morning? Twisted Evil

It's an important quote, but lacks context here. It is ironically amusing though given the meaning of the quote itself that it is taken from Crowley and then taken from LJ and soon will probably be taken from here. One quite obviously "follows" after the other. In the real spirit of this idea it would seem that an original idea and not a hackneyed out of context Crowley quote would be in order. Cool

I have to say though the RSS feed for this forum is fun. Not sure yet that I prefer it to the yahoogroup. Time will tell I guess.

Possibly. I found it here.

I don't think adding context is necessarily the best way to provoke conversation. Wink
