The Secret Teachings of Mary Magdalene by Claire Nahmad and Margaret Bailey (p. 146):
"It sounded a note, a song of such beautiful refrain that, even though many destroyers and deniers and silencers came to stamp it out forever, they never could succeed, for it echoes on today and haunts our hearts still, sweet and soul-piercing as ever it was, waiting for a suffering world to take it up again and, finally, to swell its strains with such a united voice that the inner wastelands which devastate our collective consciousness will break into blossom and proclaim the springtide of the new era, as the Song of Songs predicts:
'Lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle dove is heard in our land.' " ~~The Song of Solomon, 2:11-12.
