Alcoholism

Drunkenness is nothing but voluntary madness.

Seneca (4 BC-65) Roman philosopher and playwright.

I believe, if we take habitual drunkards as a class, their heads and their hearts will bear an advantageous comparison with those of any other class. There seems ever to have been a proneness in the brilliant and warm-blooded to fall into this vice.

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) Politician. President of the United States.

It provokes the desire but it takes away the performance. Therefore much drink may be said to be an equivocator with lechery: it makes him and it mars him; it sets him on and it takes him off.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet and playwright.

O thou invisible spirit of wine, if thou hast no name to be known by, let us call thee devil.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet and playwright.

I'm only a beer teetotaler, not a champagne teetotaler.

George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish writer.

Beauty is in the eye of the Beer holder!

O God, that men should put an enemy in their mouths to steal away their brains! That we should with joy, pleasance, revel, and applause transform ourselves into beasts!

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet and playwright.

There are some sluggish men who are improved by drinking; as there are fruits that are not good until they are rotten.

Samuel Johnson (1709-1784) British author.

Under a tattered cloak you will generally find a good drinker.
