"come loners all, as you pass by
come in and drink, if you are dry
just call your drinks, and think not of me
and pop your nose in a jug of this...
when i am in my grave and dead
and all my sorrows are past and fled
transport me, then, into a fish
and let me swim
in a jug of this..."

"always be drunk. that's the important thing --
it's the only thing that matters. in order to
escape the terrible burden of time that breaks
your back and bends you down to earth, you must be
drunk without ceasing.
but with what? with wine, with poetry, or with
virtue, as you choose. but never, ever be sober.
and if it should chance sometimes, that on the
steps of a palace, on the green grass of a ditch,
in the bleak solitude of your room, you should
wake up and find that you are no longer
intoxicated -- ask the wind, ask the wave, ask the
star, ask the bird, ask the clock -- ask
everything that moves, everything that rolls,
everything that soars, everything that sings,
everything that speaks -- ask them what time it
is; and the wind, the wave, the star, the bird,
the clock, will reply: it is time to get drunk! if
you would not be the martyred slave of time, get
drunk! get drunk! with wine, with poetery, or with
virtue, as you choose."
- charles baudelaire
