Famous quotes containing the words crowley and/or father:

    Roughly speaking, any man with energy and enthusiasm ought to be able to bring at least a dozen others round to his opinion in the course of a year no matter how absurd that opinion might be. We see every day in politics, in business, in social life, large masses of people brought to embrace the most revolutionary ideas, sometimes within a few days. It is all a question of getting hold of them in the right way and working on their weak points.
    —Aleister Crowley (1875–1947)

    My father fight against you last time. We give you one good licking then and we do it again.
    Emeric Pressburger (1902–1988)
