“You don’t need to be a sorcerer to cast a spell over yourself by saying, ‘This is how I am. I can do nothing about it.'”

– Alain, French philosopher

“You don’t need to be a sorcerer to cast a spell over yourself by saying, “This is how I am. This is how the world is. I can do nothing about it – myself and the world.'”
