Indocilis privata loqui
The motto of The Magic Circle translates to not apt to reveal secrets. And that is exactly what a magician strives to live up to. For a magician, especially a close-up magician, it is crucial that we maintain the aura of our talent in a way that leaves people in awe.
Although there are some who decide to tell the mass media all of our techniques, members of The Magic Circle do their best to maintain a level of secrecy. It should be remembered that the greatest element that can contribute to the overall effect of magic is that of mystery.
The Magic Circle teaches us and guides us on maintaining that mystery and brings us all together under one name so we can understand the importance of our work.
