Quotations of the Day

Pierre Berton

“The cult of spiritualism [mediums, etc.] with all its exotic paraphernalia began with the Fox [Margaret and Katherine] sisters in 1848.” ― The Arctic Grail, © by Pierre Berton Enterprises Ltd., McClelland and Stewart, The Canadian Publishers, Toronto, Ontario, Page 237.

“It was simple enough: the two sisters had double-jointed toes, which they had learned to crack with very little effort.  On this flimsy foundation was constructed the great edifice of modern spiritualism, and that was the work not of the two children but of Leah Fox Fisher, their older, widowed sister, who knew a good thing when she saw it and exploited both girls for most of their lives.” ― The Arctic Grail, © by Pierre Berton Enterprises Ltd., McClelland and Stewart, The Canadian Publishers, Toronto, Ontario, Page 238.
