Opium Addiction

Famous quotes containing the words opium and/or addiction:

    The shortest way out of Manchester is notoriously a bottle of Gordon’s gin; out of any businessman’s life there is the mirage of Paris; out of Paris, or mediocrity of talent and imagination, there are all the drugs, from subtle, all-conquering opium to cheating, cozening cocaine.
    William Bolitho (1890–1930)

    All sin tends to be addictive, and the terminal point of addiction is what is called damnation.
