What you do when you are drunk, you must pay for when you are dry. — Scotch. | THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

Nevertheless my uncle Benjamin was not what you lightly term a drunkard, make no mistake about that. He was an epicurean who pushed philosophy to the point of intoxication,—that was all…. He loved wine, not for itself, but for that short-lived madness which it brings…. he maintained that a fasting man was a man still asleep; that intoxication would have been one of the greatest blessings of the Creator, if it had not injured the head, and that the only thing that made man superior to the brute was the faculty of getting drunk. ~Claude Tillier (1801–1844), My Uncle Benjamin: A Humorous, Satirical, and Philosophical Novel, 1843, translated from the French by Benjamin R. Tucker, 1890http://www.quotegarden.com/alcohol.html
