Cheers

I have drunk since I was fifteen and few things have given me more pleasure. When you work hard all day with your head and you know you must work again the next day what else can change your ideas and make them run on a different plane like whiskey? When you are cold and wet what else can warm you? Before an attack who can say anything that gives you the momentary well being that rum does?

»Ernest Hemingway in a letter to the Russian critic Ivan Kashkin.
