  • Sleeplessjim shared from Tantric Brute Grimoire A Magical Grammar of the Psychopathology Stirred by the Night & Magick (Modern Day Rituals Of Transgression , Death And Sexmagick Book 1) by Angela Edwards

We should expect from him no sacrifice or effort for an abstract cause; there is not an atom of martyr's stuff in all that softened marble; but he has a capacity for strong and warm attachment, and might act devotedly through...
