The believing we do something when we do nothing is the first illusion of tobacco.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
A cigarette is the perfect type of a perfect pleasure. It is exquisite, and it leaves one unsatisfied. What more can one want?
~Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
Thank heaven, I have given up smoking again!... God! I feel fit. Homicidal, but fit. A different man. Irritable, moody, depressed, rude, nervy, perhaps; but the lungs are fine.
