O fool of hopes and hates
Arise and begone!
—Aleister Crowley, Orpheus, in Collected Works, Vol III

Boo! Scow! Be off! Out! Vanish! Fly! Begone!
Out! Off! Out! Off!

Begone! I have a fiery flight of snakes
To lash you hence!
—Aleister Crowley, Adonis in The Equinox, I vii

Disturb not the sacred night with your cries! Children of the devil, I am at my prayers, my prayers for your lost souls! Accursed are ye, accursed of God! Begone!
—Aleister Crowley, Snowstorm in The Equinox, I vii

We cast him forth from us, and said: Begone
—Aleister Crowley, Jephthah in Collected Works, Vol I

Begone! Thou hast profaned the mystery; thou hast eaten of the shew-bread; thou hast spilt the consecrated wine! Begone!
—Aleister Crowley, The Cry of the 22nd Aethyr, Which is Called LIN in The Vision and The Voice

Both Patrons and Members get access to Omnium Gatherum immediately and directly via web and email.
