    I'll give a quote from a book, you figure out what book it came from.

    I'll give you a hint:

    The book was published in English

    The quote:

    "the road to hell is paved with self medication"

    Good luck!

    Try your own!

    Being that a google search returns exactly 3 results, and two of them are this thread, I think the quote is pretty obscure...

    I'm not familiar with the book.

    "A heavy black volume, amateurishly bound, with no name or title on the cover. The print also looked slightly irregular. The pages were worn at the edges, and fell apart easily, as though the book had passed through many hands."

    A speech, more likely. He made rather a lot of them, several of them rightly famous.

    Necronomicon?

    Here's one:

    "They dauncen, and they pleyen at ches and tables."

    (Spelling is correct... and that's a hint.)
