And it harm none, do as thou wilt. - My Wiccan HP 1992 Gardnarian-Alexandrian eclectic
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
- I:40 This famous statement derives from several historic precedents, including that ofFrançois Rabelaisin describing the rule of hisAbbey of ThélèmeinGargantua and Pantagruel:Fait ce que vouldras(Do what thou wilt), which was later used by theHellfire Clubestablished by SirFrancis Dashwood. It is also similar to the pagan proverb:An ye harm none, do what thou wilt; but the oldest known statement of a similar assertion is that of St.Augustine of Hippo:Love, and do what thou wilt. - Aleister Crowley 1947
