“A fine cigar is like a fine woman.
They come in all shapes and sizes.
Treat them tenderly and lovingly.
Caress their skin, admire their beauty,
fondle them with reverence.
Bring them slowly to your lips,
enjoy their flavor, their aroma.
Contemplate their essence, their dependability,
and forgive them their weaknesses… if there be any.
Revel in the rituals, their simplicity and their enduring meanings.
Do these things, my son, and the blessings of life shall always be upon you.”
~Prince Sined Yar Maharg
