"Of all the materials that we know, the most equally compounded is gold, that having pure elements and untainted by inequality, approaches eternity more than any other matter and provides, made spiritual and applicable to the human body, a medicine that in many ways surpasses all other medicines. (The Cosmopolite, New Light of Alchemy)

"By gold I mean our spermatic, green gold , not the adore lump, which is dead and ineffectual" (T. Vaughan, Aula Lucis)

"Wisdom, like other precious materials , should be wrested from the bowels of the earth." (J. Cardan, My Life)

"According to the philosophers, there exist three classes of gold : the first is an astral gold, whose centre is found in the sun, which communicates through his rays.[.] The second is an elemental gold, which is to say the purest and most fixed part of the elements and of all the substances that these compound, by manner of which all sublunar beings of the three classes contain a valuable seed of this elementary gold in their centre.[.] The third is the beautiful metal whose brilliance and unchanging perfection makes all men to appreciate it as the sovereign remedy for all evils". (Limojon of Saint Disdier, The Hermetic Triumph)

"The gold of the wise is in no way common gold, rather certain clear and pure water upon which the spirit of the Lord is carried, and it is from there that all force of being takes and receives life". (The Cosmopolite, New Light of Alchemy)

"The gold that lies dormant in the mud is just as pure as that which gleams in the sun". (L. Cattiaux, The Message Rediscovered 2, 21)
