One should always be drunk. That’s the great thing; the only question. Not to feel the horrible burden of Time weighing on your shoulders & bowing you to the earth, you should be drunk without respite. Drunk with what? With wine, with poetry, with virtue, as you please. But get drunk. And if sometimes you should happen to awake, on the stairs of a palace, on a green grass of a ditch, in the dreary solitude of your own room & find that your drunkenness is ebbing or has vanished, ask the wind & the wave, ask star, bird, or clock, ask everything that flows, everything that sings, everything that speaks, ask them the time; & the wind, the wave, the star, the bird & the clock will all reply: “It is Time to get drunk! If you are not to be martyred slaves of Time, be perpetually Drunk! With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you please.”……..Baudelaire
