“When we use language that fits into the established framework of the culture, when we try to make our ideas respectable, we limit what we can say and think.”
“But when we use a term like “magic,” when we leap out of the constrictions of respectability, and cease to care if people see us as woo-woo, suddenly we can think about anything. We expand the range of our inquiry beyond categories already fixed in our minds.”
~ Starhawk, The Earth Path (p.27)
