Nobody knows you when you're down & out

"I said nobody knows you
When you're down and out
In your pocket, you ain't got one penny
And your friends, you didn't have any"
--Nina Simone


Unexpected find halfway around the world from where one would usually see such a sight.

Get the balance right

"You think you've got a hold of it all
You haven't got a hold at all
When you reach the top, get ready to drop
Prepare yourself for the fall, you're gonna fall
It's almost predictable"
--Depeche Mode

On the road again

"On the road again
Just can't wait to get on the road again
The life I love is makin' music with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again
On the road again
Goin' places that I've never been
Seein' things that I may never see again,
And I can't wait to get on the road again"
--Willie Nelson

One more addiction

"Oh, oh, one more addiction in my world
Oh, one more connection to let go
Oh, floating down the river
Out of sight forever from my world
It's the only thing I know how to do"
--Natalie Imbruglia

"Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate"

"Per me si va ne la città dolente,
per me si va ne l'etterno dolore,
per me si va tra la perduta gente.
Giustizia mosse il mio alto fattore:
fecemi la divina podestate,
la somma sapienza e 'l primo amore.
Dinanzi a me non fuor cose create
se non etterne, e io etterno duro.
Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate"
--Dante Alighieri

In vino, veritas

Drink to celebrate, drink to drown; drink to cheer up, drink to depress; drink to open up, drink to close in; drink to speak your mind, drink to bite your tongue; drink to do, drink to avoid; drink to live, drink to numb life; one man's trash is another man's treasure; in the same vein, each of the preceding are different sides of the same coin; if life didn't have ups and downs you'd never know you were moving; for every occasion, an antithesis exists somewhere. You know, that for every single bottle that occasioned a joyous occurrence for one, one other who was very close was summarily shot down. The irony is that alcohol, a depressant, is being used to celebrate. C'est la vie.
