I’m drunk on literature.

‘You have to be always drunk.  That’s all there is to it – it’s the only way.  So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk.

But on what?  Wine, poetry or virtue, as you wish.  But be drunk.’

— Charles Baudelaire  ‘Be Drunk’ (1886)
