A Very Present Help in Trouble

Emil Cioran (1911-1995), Syllogismes de l'amertume (tr. ‎Richard Howard):
In the crucial ordeals, a cigarette is more effective help than the Gospels.

Dans les épreuves cruciales, la cigarette nous est d'une aide plus efficace que les Évangiles.
A.E. Housman (1859-1936), A Shropshire Lad, LXII, lines 21-22:
And malt does more than Milton can
To justify God's ways to man.
