I've been here before, but most of you probably don't remember.

Aleister Crowley is my personal favorite.

I also like the following people and their respective bodies of work:

Austin Osman Spare
Joseph Campbell
Israel Regardie
Kenneth Grant
Eliphas Levi
Carl Jung
John Dee
Madame Blavlatsky
Alice Bailey

I am currently learning several different languages...Greek, Arabic, and Latin being among them.

Latin is incredibly easy, if you're a native English speaker who's never picked up a second language; highly recommended for the occultist in general, I say. There is many a great, old text related to Magick and its founding fields written in Latin.
