"One fault of many occult students is to read too much - all too often the new student is so interested in reading the latest thing that he never gets round to actually doing any of it."
"I suppose you can at least feel what it is like to be 'a lone voice crying in the wilderness' - I think even John the Baptist, in time, would have packed up his traps, said 'Sod it' (or 'Sod them') and gone home, maybe to start a locust and wild honey farm."
"I am, I suppose, trying to pass myself off as a grand old man these days, after a long career as a slowly maturing and now possibly decaying enfant terrible."
"Your remark that the devil works by compromise and subtlety is altogether too glib a simplification. He works equally well through uncompromising 'principles' very often. The thing that bothers me though is your preoccupation with the insinuations of the devil, which seems at times to verge on 'old maid's insanity'. I get the impression - I hope wrongly - that I stand a good chance of being cast in the role of the serpent offering the poisoned, or forbidden fruit."

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
