Famous quotes containing the words forms and/or drug:

    Year chases year, decay pursues decay,
    Still drops some joy from with’ring life away;
    New forms arise, and diff’rent views engage,
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    He’d been numb a long time, years. All his nights down Ninsei, his nights with Linda, numb in bed and numb at the cold sweating center of every drug deal. But now he’d found this warm thing, this chip of murder. Meat, some part of him said. It’s the meat talking, ignore it.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)
