A custom loathsome to the eye, hateful to the nose, harmful to the brain, dangerous to the lungs, and in the black, stinking fume thereof, nearest resembling the horrible Stygian smoke of the pit that is bottomless.

James I
King James I (1566-1625) King of Great Britain
A Counterblaste to Tobacco (1604)
