“This absinthe! What horror, when I think of those days… and of time not so remote… I repeat in all shame I shall have later to tell of many absurdities (and worse) due to the abuse of this horrible drink; this abuse itself, source of folly and of crime, of idiocies and of shame. The governments should suppress this absinthe and why not?”

Paul-Marie Verlaine
