Men do not knowingly drink for the effect alcohol produces on the body. What they drink for is the brain-effect; and if it must come through the body, so much the worse for the body.
I was told when a young man that the two occupational hazards of the Palace of Varieties were Alcohol and adultery. 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
Our teenage “druggies” are habituated to drugs rather than addicted. While beer and other alcoholic beverages are preferred drugs, kids have simply not used Alcohol long enough to become addicted. The other drug of preference – marijuana – is not addictive.virgil miller newton
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
L'alcool est le monarque des liquides, et porte au dernier degre l'exaltation palatale. Alcohol is the prince of liquids, and carries the palate to its highest pitch of exaltation.Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
I am more afraid of King Alcohol than of all the bullets of the enemy.thomas "stonewall" jackson
“I think I know the real reason.” “Which is?” “Alcohol in the dust clouds. Goddamn stuff is everywhere. Any lousy species ever invents the telescope and the spectroscope and starts looking in between the stars, what do they find?” He knocked the glass on the table. “Loads of stuff, but much of it Alcohol.” He drank from the glass. “Humanoids are the galaxy’s way of trying to get rid of all that Alcohol.”iain banks
Alcohol is the No. 1 issue on every college campus I've been on. [But] it isn't just the No. 1 issue in fraternities and sororities. It's the number one issue for all students.
I get no kick from champagne; Mere Alcohol doesn't thrill me at all. So tell me why should it be true That I get a kick out of you?Cole Porter
It was my Uncle George who discovered that Alcohol was a food well in advance of medical thought.Plum
In 1969 I gave up women and Alcohol - it was the worst 20 minutes of my life.George Best
Yeah, I graduated with a 4.0… blood Alcohol level.james carville
When I have an idea, I turn down the flame, as if it were a little Alcohol stove, as low as it will go. Then it explodes and that is my idea.ernest hemingway
I was so bad with the food and Alcohol in Nashville. If you saw me naked compared to what I looked like when I did Iron Man 2, when I was exercising every day — I'll get it back together, but I've never eaten so much fried food and white flour in my life, ever.gwyneth paltrow
It keeps you fit - the Alcohol, nasty women, sweat on stage, bad food - it's all very good for you.bon scott
The hallucinogens produce visionary states, sort of, but morphine and its derivatives decrease awareness of inner processes, thoughts and feelings. They are pain killers; pure and simple. They are absolutely contraindicated for creative work, and I include in the lot Alcohol, morphine, barbiturates, tranquilizers the whole spectrum of sedative drugs.William S. Burroughs
Our national drug is Alcohol. We tend to regard the use of any other drug with special horror.William S. Burroughs
The rest of Sitka’s homicides are so-called crimes of passion, which is a shorthand way of expressing the mathematical product of Alcohol and firearms.michael chabon
Orientation in time, space, and status are the essentials of social existence, and the Balinese, although they make very strong spirits for ceremonial occasions, with a few startling exceptions resist Alcohol, because if one drinks one loses one's orientation. Orientation is felt as a protection rather than as a strait jacket and its loss provokes extreme anxiety.Margaret Mead
Freezing concentrates sugar (maple sugar), Alcohol, and salt solutions as efficiently as heating distils water or Alcohol from solutions. Open pans of maple sugar can have the surface ice removed regularly (each day) until a sugar concentrate remains. Salts in water, and Alcohol in ferment liquors can be concentrated in the same way.bill mollison
Two great European narcotics, Alcohol and Christianity.friedrich nietzsche
But just as it sometimes happens that the most temperate people, who have never acquired the habit of drinking Alcohol, or even a taste for it, are tormented by the fear that somehow or other they will one day find themselves drunk, so Isabelle perpetually feared that she might be betrayed into an impulsive act that was destructive to such order as reason had imposed on life. Therefore she was forever running her faculty of analysis over in her mind with the preposterous zeal of an adolescent running a razor over his beardless chin.rebecca west
The effects of mescalin or LSD can be, in some respects, far more satisfying than those of Alcohol. To begin with, they last longer; they also leave behind no hangover, and leave the mental faculties clear and unimpaired. They stimulate the faculties and produce the ideal ground for a peak experience.colin wilson
So one day at a friend's party, where there was plenty of Alcohol, I decided to do a portrait of someone. And from there it just grew.
Note: Ratigan's henchman Bartholomew falls into some Alcohol and emerges very drunk and calls his boss "the world's greatest rat". Since Ratigan hates being called a rat and prefers the term of "a big mouse", he sentences him to death at the hands of his pet cat, who eats him up while he's still drunkenly singing of Ratigan's glory, unaware of what is about to happen despite Ratigan telling him.
Nationalism is like cheap Alcohol: First, it makes you drunk, then it makes you blind, and then it kills you.".
