Possession, Part II: Possession Means What You Want It To Mean

We've all heard the phrase that "Possession is nine-tenths of the law." Which means the courts are really on the side of the demons. Way to go, courts.

Some really important people have had opinions on the subject of possession. Some quotable quotes are below. It's really quite fun to twist the meanings around and imagine that they were actually talking about demonic possession. In some cases, they just might have been (at least I hope so).

"See the things you want as already yours. Think of them as yours, as belonging to you, as already in your possession." ~ Robert Collier

"The belief that there is only one truth, and that oneself is in possession of it, is the root of all evil in the world." ~ Max Born

"Riches do not consist in the possession of treasures, but in the use made of them." ~ Napoleon Bonaparte

"A true friend is the best possession." ~ Benjamin Franklin

"The Desire of Man being Infinite, the possession is Infinite, and himself Infinite." ~ William Blake

"The will is a beast of burden. If God mounts it, it wishes and goes as God wills; if Satan mounts it, it wishes and goes as Satan wills; Nor can it choose its rider...the riders contend for its possession." ~ Martin Luther

"Those in possession of absolute power can not only prophesy and make their prophecies come true, but they can also lie and make their lies come true." ~ Eric Hoffer

"The desire for possession is insatiable." ~ Albert Camus
