About wine...

"...Deep joy of wine,
Who of you has not experienced?

Anyone who had a guilty conscience to calm down,
a memory to remember,
pain to drown,
castles in the air to build,
finally they all conjured up a mysterious god
hidden in the vine juices.

How vast is this wine magic,
veiled with inner sun.

How true and fervent is that other youth
that man draws from it.
But how dangerous and terrible are
its thunderous delight and exasperating fascination.

Yet, say by the soul and conscience,
all you judges, legislators, the world's people,
you all that happiness makes gentle,
where wealth makes a virtue and affordable health,
say, who of you will have relentless courage
to condemn the man who drinks inspiration?"

Charles Baudelaire
