Children have always had fairy stories told to them, and these stories will continue to be told as long as there are nurses and mothers. Children have faith and this is what saves them. Imagine a child of seven saying: “I do not want to accept anything I cannot understand.” What could one teach such a monster? Accept what your teachers tell you to begin with, my fine fellow, then study it and, if you are not an idiot, you will understand it by-and-by.
Eliphas Levi (1810 – 1875)
The Great Secret – Book 2, Ch. XI
