The hurroosh that follows the intermittent revelation of the sexual goings-on of an unlucky MP has convinced me that the only safe pleasure for a parliamentarian is a bag of boiled sweets.SirJulian Michael Gordon Critchley
When you're as hollow as Enoch Kane, the emptiness aches. He's desperate to fill it, but he doesn't have the patience or the commitment to fill it with anything worthwhile… So a man like Kane obsesses on one thing after another sex, money, food, power, drugs, Alcohol anything that seems to give meaning to his days, but that requires no real self-discovery or self-sacrifice.dean r. koontz

There are those who prefer to get away inwardly, some with the help of a powerful imagination and an ability to abstract themselves from their surroundings?some with the help of opium or Alcohol?
