Two Quotes

“But we shall never understand Druidism, unless we grasp the fact that it was recognized that all knowledge must be sought two directions: one, by searching the outer world – Science; and two, by searching the depths of the human souls and the secrets of the human body – Art.”

– Eleanor Merry ‘The Flaming Door’

“Among all the Gallic peoples, generally speaking, there are three sets of men who are held in exceptional honour: the Bards, the Ovates, and the Druids. The Bards are singers and poets; the Ovates, diviners and natural philosophers; while the Druids, in addition to natural philosophy, study also moral philosophy.”

– Strabo – Geographica
