“Know the sub-consciousness to be an epitome of all experience and wisdom, past incarnations as men, animals, birds, vegetable life, etc., etc., everything that exists, has and ever will exist….”

FromThe Book of Pleasure

“For Spare, as for Aleister Crowley, sex is the fulcrum of sorcery and magic, and the key to both their systems… For Spare sorcery is a means of realizing pleasure, of transforming age into youth, ugliness into beauty, nature into art… Spare’s system suggests a new obeah, a science of resurgent atavisms, a primal magic based upon obsession end ecstasy…”

Kenneth Grant, Images and Oracles of Austin Osman Spare

“Like all magicians, Spare believed that any desire deeply felt in the inmost centre of human consciousness is capable of fulfilment.”

Francis King, Ritual Magic in England
