„The word witch is related to the root of the word "willow," a very flexible tree.“

—  Starhawk American author, activist and Neopagan 1951

Bodhi Tree lecture (1999)
Kontext: The word witch is related to the root of the word "willow," a very flexible tree. Since ancient times witches have been known as those who can bend or shape fate. We twist the energies. The idea of witch became synonymous with wise woman, and with others who were herbalists and healers and keepers of the old traditions after the advent of Christianity. We were the ones who really knew the land and knew what grew there, and how to use it.
