“Be of good cheer, therefore, since both my failure and my success are arguments of courage for yourselves.”
De Lege Libellum, Liber CL

 

“Success is your proof; courage is your armour; go on, go on, in my strength”
Liber AL vel Legis, Book of the Law

 

“The price of success was moral courage up to the theatrical limit.”
Confessions of Aleister Crowley, Chapter 76

 

“Let him beware of the ‘lust of result’, of expecting too much, of losing courage if his first success is followed by a series of failures.

For success makes success seem so incredible that one is apt to create an inhibition fatal to subsequent attempts. One fears to fail; the fear intrudes upon the concentration and so fulfils its own prophecy. We know how too much pleasure in a love affair makes one afraid to disgrace oneself on the next few occasions; indeed, until familiarity has accustomed one to the idea that one’s lover has never supposed one to be more than human. Confidence returns gradually. Inarticulate ecstasy is replaced by a more sober enjoyment of the elements of the fascination.”
Liber Samekh, Liber DCCC

 

“I think that every failure will be certainly traceable to my own dam foolishness; every little success to courage, skill, wit, tenacity. If I had but a little more of these!”
John St John
