Much there is I can stand, and most things not easy to suffer I bear with quiet resolve, just as a god commands it. Only a few I find as repugnant as snakes and poison These four: tobacco smoke, bedbugs, garlic, and †.
Tobacco, divine, rare, superexcellent Tobacco, which goes far beyond all their panaceas, potable gold, and philosopher's stones, a sovereign remedy to all diseases? But, as it is commonly abused by most men, which take it as tinkers do ale,'tis a plague, a mischief, a violent purger of goods, lands, health, hellish, devilish, and damned Tobacco, the ruin and overthrow of body and soul.

This very night I am going to leave off Tobacco ! Surely there must be some other world in which this unconquerable purpose shall be realized.Charles Lamb
It's all one thing both tend into one scope To live upon Tobacco and on Hope, The one's but smoke, the other is but wind.
Tobacco is a traveler, Come from the Indies hither; It passed sea and land Ere it came to my hand, And 'scaped the wind and weather. Tobacco's a musician. And in a pipe delighteth; It descends in a close, Through the organ of the nose, With a relish that inviteth.
Tobacco's but an Indian weed, Grows green at morn, cut down at eve; It shows our decay, we are but clay. Think on this when you smoak Tobacco.

In legislation we all do a lot of swapping Tobacco across the lines.joseph gurney cannon
I have been up to see the Congress and they do not seem to be able to do anything except to eat peanuts and chew Tobacco, while my army is starving.robert e. lee
All they that love not Tobacco and boys are fools.Christopher Marlowe
Often, very often, I am alone. My studio in Amsterdam, (Beckmann lived in the center of Amsterdam during World War 2.) an enormous old Tobacco storeroom is again filled in my imagination with figures from the old days and from the new, like an ocean moved by storm and sun and always present in my thoughts. Then shapes become beings and seem comprehensible to me in the great void and uncertainty of the space which I call god.max beckmann
Sublime Tobacco! which from east to west Cheers the tar's labor or the Turkman's rest.lord byron
The puritanic potentialities of science have never been forecast. If it evolves a body of organized rites, and is established as a religion, hierarchically organized, things more than anything else will be done in the name of "decency". The coarse fumes of Tobacco and liquors, the consequent tainting of the breath and staining of white fingers and teeth, which is so offensive to many women, will be the first things attended to.wyndham lewis
“Beer, Tobacco, and music,” he went on. “Behold the Fatherland.”thomas mann
I went to Salt Lake City and the Mormons tried to convert me, but when I found they forbade tea and Tobacco I thought it was no religion for me.bertrand russell
Bible 's the greatest book ever written. But I sure don't need anybody I can buy for six bits and a chew of Tobacco to explain it to me. When I need preachers I buy 'em cheap.
For thy sake, Tobacco, I Would do anything but die.Charles Lamb
Sublime Tobacco! which from east to west, Cheers the tar's labour or the Turkman's rest; Which on the Moslem's ottoman divides His hours, and rivals opium and his brides; Magnificent in Stamboul, but less grand, Though not less loved, in Wapping or the Strand: Divine in hookas, glorious in a pipe, When tipp'd with amber, mellow, rich, and ripe; Like other charmers wooing the caress, More dazzlingly when daring in full dress; Yet thy true lovers more admire by far Thy naked beauties Give me a cigar!lord byron
Neither do thou lust after that tawney weed Tobacco.Ben Jonson
Ods me I marle what pleasure or felicity they have in taking their roguish Tobacco. It is good for nothing but to choke a man, and fill him full of smoke and embers.Ben Jonson
King Cotton, phrase frequently used by Southern politicians and authors prior to the American Civil War, indicating the economic and political importance of cotton production. After the invention of the cotton gin (1793), cotton surpassed Tobacco as the dominant cash crop in the agricultural economy of the South, soon comprising more than half the total U.S. exports.
