An excerpt from Sage Weston's The Wonder Of Witchcraft:
In the race for recognition many fall at the first fence and in their humiliation generally pick themselves up and continue with renewed vigor. By contrast, there are equally well those who find that the fall to earth is not at all unpleasant and it is with a great sense of relief that they lie there, discovering the pleasures of contemplation and allowing their contemporaries to streak ahead.
Many seek a life of solitude or limited social encounters and those who realize their spiritual connections may well lean towards a mystical path.
Within this category lies the witch - male or female.
