Devil Bat Ghost

Famous quotes containing the words devil and/or ghost:

    We till shadowed days are done,
    We must weep and sing
    Duty’s conscious wrong,
    The Devil in the clock,
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    If an addict who has been completely cured starts smoking again he no longer experiences the discomfort of his first addiction. There exists, therefore, outside alkaloids and habit, a sense for opium, an intangible habit which lives on, despite the recasting of the organism.... The dead drug leaves a ghost behind. At certain hours it haunts the house.
    Jean Cocteau (1889–1963)
