Sivu 31 - It will be entirely dependent on the circumstances in which we are placed, the objects which strike our eyes, the words which fall on our ears, whether the most lively sentiments of gaiety or of sadness shall be produced, or passions of the most opposite character shall be excited, sometimes with extraordinary violence ; for irritation...
Sivu 52 - The minutest incidents of childhood, or forgotten scenes of later years, were often revived : I could not be said to recollect them ; for, if I had been told of them when waking, I should not have been able to acknowledge them as parts of my past experience.
Sivu 52 - The sense of space, and in the end, the sense of time, were both powerfully affected. Buildings, landscapes, &c. were exhibited in proportions so vast as the bodily eye is not fitted to receive. Space swelled, and was amplified to an extent of unutterable infinity.
Sivu 31 - Hachisch : he had made but a few steps, when it seemed to him as if he had been there two or three hours ; and, as he advanced, the passage appeared to him interminable, its extremity receding as he pressed forwards.
Sivu 51 - ... and to disperse the intellectual energies: whereas opium always seems to compose what had been agitated, and to concentrate what had been' distracted.

In that state, crowds become an oppression to him; music even, too sensual and gross. He naturally seeks solitude and silence, as indispensable conditions of those trances, or profoundest reveries, which are the crown and consummation of what opium can do for human nature.
Sivu 97 - B. appeared the whole time to have the most agreeable symptoms proceeding from the epigastrium. All the phenomena presented were those of ecstasy; his features bespoke the greatest happiness ; he could not find language to express his feelings ; he would not wish to leave his present condition, he is so happy. 'How much I thank those who gave me that delicious drink !' 'Tell me what you feel,
Sivu xvii - Indian hemp, are all of great and essential service if administered with judgment and sagacity. In suicidal insanity, when local cerebral congestion is absent, and the general health and secretions are in good condition, the meconite and hydrochlorate of morphia often act like a charm, if uninterruptedly and persevcringly given until the nervous system is completely under their influence.
Sivu 52 - I seemed every night to descend, not metaphorically, but literally to descend, into chasms and sunless abysses, depths below depths, from which it seemed hopeless that I could ever reascend. Nor did I, by waking, feel that I had reascended.
