Patrick Süskind quote: the persuasive power of odor

Odors have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions, or will. The persuasive power of an odor cannot be fended off; it enters into us like breath into our lungs; it fills us up, imbues us totally. There is no remedy for it.
