| As an example to others, and not that I
care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when
asleep and never to refrain when awake.
- 70th birthday speech
Illustration from KANSAS CITY STAR,
November 25, 1897
|...when they used to tell me I would shorten my life ten years by smoking,
they little knew the devotee they were wasting their puerile word upon --
they little knew how trivial and valueless I would regard a decade that
had no smoking in it!
- letter to Joseph Twichell, 19 Dec 1870
