Tobacco, divine, rare, super excellent tobacco, which goes far beyond all the panaceas, potable gold, and philosophers’ 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.
– Robert Burton, (1577-1640), English clergyman author, Anatomy of Melancholy
