WILLIAM DE MORGAN
English craftsman and novelist
(1839 - 1917)

I expressed just now my mistrust of what is called Spiritualism-- . . . I owe it a trifle for a message said to come from Voltaire's Ghost. It was asked, "Are you not now convinced of another world?" and rapped out, "There is no other world--Death is only an incident in Life."
      - Joseph Vance (ch. XI) [Death]

For I never have seen, and never shall see, that the cessation of the evidence of existence is necessarily evidence of the cessation of existence.
      - Joseph Vance (ch. XL) [Immortality]

. . . There are two distinct classes of people in the world; those that feel that they themselves are in a body; and those that feel that they themselves are a body, with something working it. I feel the contents of a bottle, and am curious to know what will happen when the bottle is uncorked. Perhaps I shall be mousseux--who knows? Now I know that many people feel like a strong moving engine, self-stoking, and often so anxious to keep the fire going that they put too much fuel on, and it has to be raked out and have the bars cleared.
      - Joseph Vance (ch. XL) [Life]

A Corpse or a Ghost-- . . . I'd sooner be one or t'other, square and fair, than a Ghost in a Corpse, which is my feelins at present.
      - Joseph Vance (ch. XXXIX) [Spirits]
