Its all one thing both tend

It’s all one thing – both tend into one scope –
To live upon Tobacco and on Hope,
The one’s but smoke, the other is but wind.
~Sir Robert Aytoun (Ayton)of Kincaldie, "Sonnet on Tobacco"

Hope deceitful as it is serves at

Hope, deceitful as it is, serves at least to lead us to the end of our lives by an agreeable route.  ~François Duc de La Rochefoucauld
