"Since I was stoned all the time, I tried in all ways to behave like Queen Victoria. Thus I probably appeared to be a little cracked."
-- Laurie Colwin, "The Achieve of, the Mastery of the Thing"

He ordered a light absinthe. Suddenly he flung the glass and its contents into my face. I managed to duck and grab him,... [and] a few minutes later, Vincent was in his own bed...not to awaken until morning.

-- Paul Gauguin, "Drinking Absinthe with Van Gogh"

"It is drunk by the sick man as medicine at sunrise, partaking of it strengthens the limbs, preserves the legs from breaking, wards off all disease and lengthens life.

-- Rig Veda, "Soma"

"Twenty-four hours later, I'm beginning to get my neocortex back (I think). Soon, I hope to be human again."
-- Jim Hogshire, "The Electric Cough Syrup Acid Test"
