Quotes

I’ve been an admirer of Aleister Crowley, I think that I am carrying on much of the work that he started over a hundred years ago, and I think the sixties themselves... you know Crowley said... he was in favor of finding your own self, and “do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law” - under love - it was a very powerful statement. I’m sorry he isn’t around to appreciate the glories he started.
