Relevant Quote #43
What three things does drink especially provoke?
Marry, sir, nose-painting, sleep, and
Urine. Lechery, sir, it provokes, and unprovokes;
It provokes the desire, but it takes
Away the performance: therefore, much drink
May be said to be an equivocator with lechery:
It makes him, and it mars him; it sets
Him on, and it takes him off; it persuades him,
And disheartens him; makes him stand to, and
Not stand to; in conclusion, equivocates him
In a sleep, and, giving him the lie, leaves him.
-- William Shakespeare
