Drugs

Woe to you, my Princess, when I come... you shall see who is the stronger, a gentle little girl who doesn't eat enough or a big wild man who has cocaine in his body.

Words are the most powerful drugs used by mankind.

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) British writer.

The worst drugs are as bad as anybody's told you. It's just a dumb trip, which I can't condemn people if they get into it, because one gets into it for one's own personal, social, emotional reasons. It's something to be avoided if one can help it.

John Lennon (1940-1980) British musician.

The basic thing nobody asks is why do people take drugs of any sort? Why do we have these accessories to normal living to live? I mean, is there something wrong with society that's making us so pressurized, that we cannot live without guarding ourselves against it?

John Lennon (1940-1980) British musician.

Under the pressure of the cares and sorrows of our mortal condition, men have at all times, and in all countries, called in some physical aid to their moral consolations -- wine, beer, opium, brandy, or tobacco.

Edmund Burke (1729-1797) British political writer.

Opiate. An unlocked door in the prison of Identity. It leads into the jail yard.

Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914) American newspaperman and short-story writer.

Thou source of all my bliss and all my woe, that found me poor at first, and keep me so.

Oliver Goldsmith (1728-1774) Irish writer, poet, and physician.

Which is better: to have fun with fungi or to have Idiocy with ideology, to have wars because of words, to have tomorrow's misdeeds out of yesterday's miscreeds?

Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) British author.

Take me, I am the drug; take me, I am hallucinogenic.

Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) Spanish surrealist painter.

The human mind is capable of excitement without the application of gross and violent stimulants; and he must have a very faint perception of its beauty and dignity who does not know this.
