Let me eat when I am hungry, Let me drink when I am dry, A dollar when I am hard up, Religion when I die, The whole world’s a bottle, And life’s but a dram, When the bottle gets empty, It sure ain’t worth a damn.
“She was more than human to me. She was a Fairy, a Sylph, I don’t know what she was - anything that no one ever saw, and everything that everybody ever wanted. I was swallowed up in an abyss of love in an instant. There was no pausing on the brink; no looking down, or looking back; I was gone, headlong, before I had sense to say a word to her.”—Charles Dickens (via suzywire)
