one should always be drunk.
that's the one thing that matters.
in order not to feel the terrible
burden of Time, which breaks
your shoulders and crushes you
to the ground, one should be drunk
without ceasing. but on what?
on wine, on poetry, or on virtue,
as suits you.
but get drunk...

hmmm, i think i get drunk on blue skies. this quote makes me think you need to read "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" by Kundera.
