“Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of magic.” ― Carl Sagan
“If I went back to college again, I’d concentrate on two areas learning to write and to speak before an audience. Nothing in life is more important than the ability to communicate effectively.” ― Gerald R. Ford

Lesson: The Law of Attraction
“…. By Tast and by Colour thou shalt him well know;
Fowle in the Ayer with it doe fly,
And Fishes doe swim there with in the Sea,
With Reason of Angels you may it diserne,
Both Man and Woman to governe,
With our fixed Body (Son) we must thus begin.
Of him make Mercury and Water cleare,
Man and Woman is them within,
Married together by vertue of our Fire…”
