I never drink. I cannot do it, on equal terms with others. It costs them only one day; but me three,--the first in sinning, the second in suffering, and the third in repenting.
      - Laurence Sterne

If the bones of all those who have fallen as a prey to intemperance could be piled up it would make a vast pyramid. Who will gird himself for the journey and try with me to scale this mountain of the dead--going up miles high on human carcasses to find still other peaks far above, mountain above mountain, white with the bones of drunkards.
      - Thomas De Witt Talmage

He that tempts me to drink beyond my measure, civilly invites me to a fever.
      - Jeremy Taylor

Drunkenness is an immoderate affection and use of drink. That I call immoderation that is besides or beyond that order of good things for which God hath given us the use of drink.
      - Jeremy Taylor, Holy Living--Of Drunkenness
         (ch. II, pt. 2)

The wine of Love is music,
  And the feast of Love is song:
    And when Love sits down to the banquet,
      Love sits long:
        . . . .
          Sits long and rises drunken,
            But not with the feast and the wine;
              He reeleth with his own heart,
                That great, rich Vine.
      - James Thomson (2) (known as B.V. or Bysshe Vanolis),
        The Vine

A drunkard clasp his teeth and not undo 'em,
  To suffer wet damnation to run through 'em.
      - Cyril Tourneur (Turnour or Turner),
        The Revenger's Tragedy (act III, sc. 1)

In our world, death deputes intemperance to do the work of age.
      - Edward Young
