"Truely the deepest secret is always hidden even though it be laid in the public ways or cried from the rooftops. The search is to be known only to the seeker, it is not to be taught but only to be learned, and then hardly." "The true temple ... is the body of man : and the innermost mystery of the ritual of thought and imagination is past the hierarchy of ancient powers that are once of terror and of beauty." "So this day salvation has come. My 'I and self' has agreed in belief. I would ask of thee thy SUPPRESSED self. Is it not the new thing desired?" "No man shall follow me. I am not thy preservation. THOU ART THE WAY."
