- Aleister Crowley
"The greatest, like Rembrandt, paint a gallant, a hag, and a carcass with equal passion and rapture; they love the truth as it is. Â They do not admit that anything can be ugly or evil; its existence justifies itself. Â This is because they know themselves to be part of an harmonious unity; to disdain any item of it would be to blaspheme the whole. Â The Thelemite is able to revel in any experience soever; in each he recognizes the tokens of ultimate Truth. Â It is surely obvious, even intellectually, that all phenomena are interdependent, and therefore involve each other."
