"Magick is a subtle and curious thing and often works in ways you do not expect and at times you do not expect- but it always works. Every magical act brings a result, as you are about to learn." -Rodney Orpheus, from the Introduction

"Abrahadabra is about the practice of the magick of Thelema- a system of physical, mental, and spiritual training and discipline based on two fundamental principles: "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law" and "Love is the law, love under will." -Lon Milo DuQuette
