Go here. Keep refreshing until you’ve collected five quotes that really resonate with you, then post them to your journal.

1. A book burrows into your life in a very profound way because the experience of reading is not passive.
Erica Jong, O Magazine, 2003

2.The lesson which life repeats and constantly enforces is ‘look under foot.’ You are always nearer the divine and the true sources of your power than you think.
John Burroughs (1837 – 1921)

3. Give to every other human being every right that you claim for yourself.
Robert Ingersoll (1833 – 1899)

4. Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
Calvin Coolidge (1872 – 1933)

5. There is nothing new under the sun but there are lots of old things we don’t know.
Ambrose Bierce (1842 – 1914), The Devil’s Dictionary


Your Score: Isis

Indeed, you are 70% erudite, 75% sensual, 54% martial, and 62% saturnine.

This Egyptian supreme Goddess is certainly the most influential deity on subsequent cultures. She was the ideal figure of womanhood, usually compared with the Greek Goddess Demeter or her Roman version, Ceres.

Isis was one element of a Holy Trinity, the remaining two figures being her brother and husband Osiris and their heroic son Horus. She was the Goddess of Magic for her brilliance, as well as the Goddess of Love because of her tenacious devotion.

She is often shown with wings, curving to caress coffins and sarcophagi of many a king. In certain papyri she is shown with her falcon wing headdress, covering her ears. One of her sacred symbols is the sistrum, a musical instrument that was believed to ward off evil spirits. Isis’ sistrum was carved bearing the image of a cat and was representative of the Moon.

Isis was the High Priestess and an omnipotent magician as well as the only being ever to discover the secret name of Ra. She invariably carries the ankh, the symbol for eternal life. Her name is, by the rules of numerology, adding up to the number ?2? and she just so happens to be depicted on the tarot card ?Key 2 ? The High Priestess?.
