“…shared her disdain for witches like me who could draw on the elements without any careful study of the witch’s craft tradition.”
Even the art I absorb is divinely guided. Between this book and the universal signs studying has become priority. Knowledge is power, soon I’ll have my own book of shadows. Diana, the protagonist in A Discovery Of Witches is literally me, trying to live a normal life but fated for something extraordinary, incredibly powerful yet hasn’t had to work at it.

“You can try to keep the magic away, but it won’t work, any more than it worked for Robert Hooke or Issac Newton. They both knew there was no such thing as a world without magic.
Hooke was brilliant, with his ability to think through scientific problems in three dimensions and construct instruments and experiments. But he never reached his full potential because he was fearful of the mysteries of nature.
Newton? He had the most fearless intellect I’ve ever known. Newton wasn’t afraid of what couldn’t be seen an easily explained- he embraced it all. As a historian you know that it was alchemy and his belief in invisible, powerful forces, growth and change that led him to the theory of gravity.” Photographer: Partha Nair
