When we set out on the path, we always have a fairly clear idea of what we hope to fine. Women are generally seeking their Soulmate, and men are looking for Power. Neither party is really interested in learning. They simply want to reach the thing they have as their goal. But the path of magic - like the path of life - is and always will be the path of Mystery. Learning something means coming into contact with a world of which you know nothing. In order to learn, you must be humble.
Brida, Paulo Coelho
