slippery slope

18 09 2015

If once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing; and from robbing he comes next to drinking and Sabbath-breaking, and from that to incivility and procrastination. Once begun upon this downward path, you never know where to stop. Many a man has dated his ruin from some murder or other that perhaps he thought little of at the time.

De Quincey

Surface meets surface. When our life ceases to be inward and private, conversation degenerates into mere gossip. … In proportion as our inward life fails, we go more constantly and desperately to the post-office. You many depend on it, that the poor fellow who walks away with the greatest number of letters, proud of his extensive correspondence, has not heard from himself this long while.

Thoreau

Come my Celia, let us prove

While we may the joys of love

Time will not be ours forever

He at length our good will sever

Spend not then his gifts in vaine

Suns that set may rise again

But when we once lose our little light

It is with us perpetual night

(Jonson)
