QUOTES ON ALCOHOLISM

ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON, Treasure Island

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

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, Othello

Drunk, if you like; so much the worse for those who fear wine, for it is because they have some bad thoughts which they are afraid the liquor will extract from their hearts.

ALEXANDRE DUMAS, The Count of Monte Cristo

I clear my conscience--the name of rum for you is death.

ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON, Treasure Island
