You notice what I drink, and not the thirst I feel.

The Doctor’s opinion is that we have a physical allergy to alcohol:

“We believe, and so suggested a few years ago, that the action of alcohol on these chronic alcoholics is a manifestation of an allergy; that the phenomenon of craving is limited to this class and never occurs in the average temperate drinker. These allergic types can never safely use alcohol in any form at all; and once having formed the habit and found they cannot break it, once having lost their self-confidence, their reliance upon things human, their problems pile up on them and become astonishingly difficult to solve.”

The definition for the word “allergy” is, “Excess sensitiveness to certain substances which are harmless to most persons.”

“Purpose is not that far my child—
it’s just a journey’s walk.
It is the One at the end of the journey,
it is the end of the journey, and it is the journey
itself.
And when you thirst, do you not drink?
And when you are cool, do you not warm yourself?
and when you are weary, do you not rest?
And if you need meaning, should you not reach out?
I said out! My child, out!
In all simplicity those in need reach out and receive beyond
themselves.
He’s at the end of the quench,
and the relief of the warmth,
the satisfaction of a rest, and the
salvage of a soul.”

― Quinesia Johnson, Growth In Expression: Modern Christian Poems

0, lizard, if you ent’er the water you will become a crocodile.

As if one said to a man, " Yes, go on, you can do it," 
knowing well that he cannot. To egg him on.

The lizard, when it feels cold at night, says to itself 
" to-morrow I will find a smouldering tree to 
sleep in so that I shall be warm." Next day 
when it basks in the sun it forgets and does not 
do it ; the consequence is that it feels cold again 
next night.

“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. 
I am haunted by waters.”

“The abundant life begins from within and then moves outward to other individuals. If there is richness and righteousness in us, then we can make a difference in the lives of others, just as key individuals have influenced the lives of each of us for good and made us richer than we otherwise would have been.”

Spencer W. Kimball

I consider in my own mind whether thou art a spirit, sometimes, or sometimes an evil imp,” said the lama, smiling slowly.

I drank at every vine, the last was like the first. I came upon no wine so wonderful as thirst.

“That’s what was wrong with drinking too much. You became immune to drunken delights. There was no solace in liquor. Before you got happy, you collapsed.”

“A first child is your own best foot forward, and how you do cheer those little feet as they strike out. You examine every turn of flesh for precocity, and crow it to the world. But the last one: the baby who trails her scent like a flag of surrender through your life when there will be no more coming after–oh, that’ s love by a different name.”

― Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible

You speak of my drinking, yet you don’t know my thirst”

“Our children don’t have to have drinking problems. They don’t have to go through divorce or live defeated lives. You can be the one to stir them up, shake them up, and tell them there is a champion inside of them just waiting to come out. Tell them God has a plan for their lives, and they are destined to do greater things than we ever thought of doing…. You can decide to be the role model and reverse your whole generational pattern from a bad one to a good one.”

It had all been a storm in a teacup. ― David Howarth

“But when we consider how small after all the cup of human enjoyment is, how soon overflowed with tears, how easily drained to the dregs in our quenchless thirst for infinity, we shall not blame ourselves for making so much of the tea-cup.”

― Kakuzō Okakura, The Book of Tea

THE first glass for thirst, the second for nourishment, the third for pleasure, and the fourth for madness.

ANACHARSIS.

LORIKEETS

so many gifts and talents,

birds soaring into their dreams,

and the sea, the sea,

suspended

aroma,

chorus of rich, resonant salt,

and meanwhile,

we men,

touch the water,

struggling

and hoping,

we touch the sea,

hoping.

And the waves tell the firm coast,

"Everything will be fulfilled."
