"The spirit of Hermes seems to have a pronounced aversion to formal organizations. As soon as a group of humans establishes bylays and begins collecting dues in his name, he's out of there."
The above is from "On Becoming an Alchemist, A guide for the Modern Magician". by Catherine MacCoun. I was passed it by my firend Jenn this weekend, who also happens to be the authors publicist.
I am only in the third chapter, but am loving it so far. I will have a full review when I finish.
