Strong as a man, the Queen strides in.
          Even she shrank frighted! – my aspect
More dreadful than all shapes of sin
          Her dreams might shape or recollect,
Hideous with fasting, madness, grief,
Beyond all speaking or belief.

Aleister Crowley, Ahab, Part II

Hermetic quote Crowley Ahab more dreadful than all shapes sin hideous fasting madness grief beyond speaking belief
