"...Nevertheless, today the secrets are still securely guarded; not by
societies and oaths, but by the subte profundity of the teachings
themselves; and the unwillingness of all but the most tenacious students
to devote even a little time and attention to the quest. It is indeed
ironic that in an era when bookstore shelves overflow with the secret
teachings of the ages, the secrets are more deeply hidden than ever."
~ Lon Milo DuQuette, Tarot of Ceremonial Magick, p. xx
