More from Morley

Christopher Morley

I found this quotation in Rick Newcombe’s In Search of Pipe Dreams, a book I highly recommend. The words were written in 1916 by pipe-smoking enthusiast Christopher Morley, author of The Haunted Bookshop, for which the Cornell & Diehl tobacco is named. (C&D’s Morley’s Best is named after the author himself. I like both blends.)

I define life as a process of the Will-to-Smoke; recurring periods of consciousness in which the enjoyability of smoking is manifest, interrupted by intervals of recuperation.

Quote for Today

Christopher Morley

What with filling my pipe and emptying it, lighting it and relighting it, I don’t seem to get much time for the serious concerns of life. Come to think of it, smoking, soiling dishes and washing them, talking and listening to other people talk, take up most of life anyway.
