Magaly over at Pagan Culture is being kind enough to host this little get together, so here is my contribution to Witches in Fiction.
My Favorite Non Alive Person (or A Tribute to Granny Weatherwax).
Here is my Bit 'o Granny Wisdom for today:
From Witches Abroad
You can't go around building a better world for people. Only people can build a better world for people. Otherwise it's just a cage.
This one reminds me that I need to think carefully about my motives when I am doing a working for someone else. Just because I can do something, doesn't always mean I should. One thing that Granny has mastered is that magic doesn't just go 'poof' and make everything better. People, working their butts off, make things better. No spell I do will ever on its own be enough to enact change. I have to act and follow it up to really make change.
