A Quote by Patrick Jake "P.J." O'Rourke on alcohol, drugs, greed, ignorance, love, people, power, society, stupidity, and trouble

Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs; we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed, and love of power.

P.J. O'Rourke (1947 -)

I would advise you to keep your overhead down; avoid a major drug habit; play every day; and take it in front of other people. They need to hear it, and you need them to hear it

A Quote by George Merck on business, drugs, and justice

Remember the Three Princes of Serendipity who went out looking for treasure? They didn't find what they were looking for, but they kept finding things just as valuable. That's serendipity, and our business (drugs) is full of it.

A Quote by Fran Lebowitz on drugs, illness, impossibility, love, pleasure, reality, and romance

Romantic love is mental illness. But it's a pleasurable one. It's a drug. It distorts reality, and that's the point of it. It would be impossible to fall in love with someone that you really saw.
