Famous quotes containing the words cessation and/or smoking:

    ... we, like so many others who think more of working than of dying, care only to push on steadily, wishing less for cessation of toil than for strength to keep at it; and for wisdom to make it worthy of the ideal of labor and of life which we believe to be the most precious gift of Heaven to any soul.

    Albert Camus (1913–1960)
