Witchcraft versus Sorcery

Another tidbit from Peter Somerville-Large's Irish Eccentrics:
'The distinction between witchcraft and sorcery seems to be one of degree; sorcery is the more sophisticated pursuit, since its practitioners seem to be rather masters of the devil than his slaves. Of course, the advantage is only temporary.'
So remember that the next time a winged man-goat offers you wealth, success, and eternal life for a nominal fee.

Give me sorcery! I prefer the intellectual to the base any day.

[SNORT] But really.

Harry Potter has got me hooked on witchcraft and wizardry myself.
