As Shakespeare said
"Drink, sir, is a great provoker of three things...
Lechery, sir, it provokes, and unprovokes;
it provokes the desire, but it takes
away the performance: therefore, much drink
may be said to be an equivocator with lechery:"
Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through my chambers of my brain.
Quaintest thoughts - queerest fancies
Come to life and fade away;
What care I how time advances?
I am drinking ale today.
- Edgar Allan Poe
