According to How Stuff Works....

You think you know witches. You think you know how they act.Well witches aren't what you think. Modern witches don't exactly fit most of the TV and movie characters you'v seen.

Are they nice,are they bad,do they cast spells to cause bad things to happen?The true definition of a witch, as well as the history of witches in general, is widely debated. Many texts describe witchcraft as pacts with the Devil in exchange for powers to do evil and harm others. While this may have some truth in certain sects, for most modern-day witches it is quite far from their actual beliefs and practices.But in my opinyon if you learn it or do it it insults are amazing God but he still loves you nomader what.

praise singing

according to wikipedia the praise singer is a historical novel by Mary Renault first published in 1978. Its narrator and main character is the real-life lyric poet Simonides of Keos, whose life (ca. 556 BC-469 BCE) spanned the transition from an oral to a written culture in Ancient Greece. Renault's fiction argues that this transition was in part responsible for the cultural flowering known as the Golden Age of Athens--though she also gives credit to Hipparchus, Tyrant of Athens, who attracted talented artists like Simonides to live in his city. Renault depicts him as having the works of Homer set down in writing for the first time.:)
