Famous quotes containing the word magic:
“Religion differs from magic in that it is not concerned with control or manipulation of the powers confronted. Rather it means submission to, trust in, and adoration of, what is apprehended as the divine nature of ultimate reality.”
—Joachim Wach (18981955)
“Without being forgiven, released from the consequences of what we have done, our capacity to act would ... be confined to one single deed from which we could never recover; we would remain the victims of its consequences forever, not unlike the sorcerers apprentice who lacked the magic formula to break the spell.”
—Hannah Arendt (19061975)
“The magic of procedure: do this after that and thus before so; then your wish will be granted.”
—Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
