Liber LXV, Cap. I, v. 12-14

12. Then was there silence. Speech had done with us awhile.
There is a light so strenuous that it is not perceived as light.
13. Wolf's bane is not so sharp as steel; yet it pierceth the body more subtly.
14. Even as evil kisses corrupt the blood, so do my words devour the spirit of man.
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."

Spirit, its manifestation in Earth (Mal'khoot,The Kingdom) is subtle, its effect on the phenomena of the Earth fundamentally and wholly transformative.

Subtle:
So delicate or precise
As to be difficult to analyze or describe.

Words are too cut and dry
To effect, or even explain,
The profound changes
That a wispy cloud
Of tiny gestures
Are capable of

There are truths unspoken, even more relentless than those we are able to say.
"But all we say and do, however casually, adds up to more, far more, than our most strenuous Operations. 'Take care of the pence, and the pounds will take care of themselves.'" - Commentaries of AL
