The earth is an indian thing - I squatted on it, rolled thick sticks
of marijuana on sod floors of stick huts not far from Mazatlan near
the opium center of the world and we sprinkled opium in our
masterjoints - we had black heels. We talked about the Revolution.
Jack Kerouac, Mexico Fellaheen
Hence it came about I concealed my pleasures; and that when I reached
years of reflection, and began to look round me and take stock of my progress
and position in the world, I stood already committed to a profound duplicity
...with every day, and from both sides of my intelligence, the moral and
the intellectual, I thus drew steadily nearer to that truth by whose
partial discovery I have been doomed to such a dreadful shipwreck: THAT MAN
IS NOT TRULY ONE, BUT TWO.
R. L. Stevenson, The strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
