THIRST
[ Also see Drinking Intemperance Water Wine and Spirits ]

The incessant fever of that arid thirst
  Which welcomes as a well the clouds that burst
    Above their naked heads, and feels delight
      In the cold drenchings of the stormy night.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

The panting thirst, which scorches in the breath
  Of those that die the soldier's fiery death,
    In vain impels the burning mouth to crave
      One drop--one last--to cool it for the grave.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

It's a wretched business
  To be digging a well
    Just as thirst is overcoming you.
      [Lat., Miserum est opus,
        Igitur demum fodere puteum,
          Ubi sitis fauces tenet.]
      - Plautus (Titus Maccius Plautus)
