    I've always thought H.L. Mencken was a good source for funny and enlightened quotes, especially about American culture/politics and especially if you share his absurdist view of the world.

    Two of my favorites are: "Nature abhors a moron." and what is written on his epitaph, "If, after I depart this vale, you ever remember me and have thought to please my ghost, forgive some sinner and wink your eye at some homely girl."

    So I got emailed and chastised for not listing quotes by women on my website. I'm guilty of the oversight. Here is a quote from the Peace Pilgrim for the newlyweds.

    " Pure love is a willingness to give without a thought of receiving anything in return."

    I liked your way of humour and intelligence can you give some more quotes like this.

    The fundemental laws of magick, expressed by too many to count throughout history, paraphrased and updated:

    1) Truly know yourself. (How many of us can truly say we do?)

    2) I will it, so must it be. (Think about it, this is the basis of pretty much every self help book and all modern psychology.)

    3) Do as you wish so long as it harms no one. (I'm a Libertarian.)

    4) Everything you do will be returned to you three times over in like kind. (It will all catch up to you sooner or later.)

    And before everybody flames me: No, I don't believe in Hocus Pocus. But, you can have worse words to live by.
