Famous quotes with Initiates

  • Passion is the seed of all aspirations i.e. it (passion) triggers-off all aspirations. I mean, it initiates or causes every aspiration to happen or exist. Or better still, to become a reality. Thus, you've got to be passionate for life. ~Emeasoba George.
  • To be passionate is like being used to drinking a lot of water. And whoever that drinks a lot of water hardly falls sick. Similarly, whoever that is positively passionate will hardly fail in whatever he or she does. Or rather, he or she will often emerge a success eventually. Thus, you've got to be passion driven in all you do. For, to be passionate is even better off than to be fortunate. Because, passion initiates and guarantees fortunes. That's just that.
    Emeasoba George
  • A small but significant number of angry and historically minded women comprehend the women's revolution in the visionary sense of an end to the catastrophic brotherhood and a return to the former glory and wise equanimity of the matriarchies. We don't know how this will take place exactly, nor the resultant nature of the new social forms, we know that it take place, and in fact that the process of its development is now irreversibly underway. Of supreme importance in this process is the recovery by modern woman of her mythology as models for theory, consciousness, and action.... The Swiss patrician Jacob Bachofen was one of the first to discover "the female era at the lower seam of history, with its sacerdotal, political, and economic female dominion." …. The fruits of this research were until recently unavailable except to a few initiates and they now form a cornerstone of the second wave in the feminist revolution....
    Jill Johnston

  • Yhe most significant change in the games themselves is the addition of 'Follow the Folower' (p 62), a variation on the 'Mirror' game in which no one initiates and all reflect. This game quiets the mind and frees players to enter a time, space, a moment intertwined with one another in a non-physical, non-verbal, non-analytical, nonjudgmental way.
