Anaïs Nin
“Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”
Anaïs Nin, Incest: From "A Journal of Love": The Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin, 1932-1934

Friedrich Nietzsche
“Doubt as sin. — Christianity has done its utmost to close the circle and declared even doubt to be sin. One is supposed to be cast into belief without reason, by a miracle, and from then on to swim in it as in the brightest and least ambiguous of elements: even a glance towards land, even the thought that one perhaps exists for something else as well as swimming, even the slightest impulse of our amphibious nature — is sin! And notice that all this means that the foundation of belief and all reflection on its origin is likewise excluded as sinful. What is wanted are blindness and intoxication and an eternal song over the waves in which reason has drowned.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Daybreak: Thoughts on the Prejudices of Morality

Charlaine Harris
“Niall had been able to mask the odor of fairy from Eric in the restaurant, but I saw from the flare of Eric's nostrils that the intoxicating scent clung to me. Eric's eyes closed in ecstasy, and he actually licked his lips. I felt like a T-bone just out of reach of a hungry dog.
"Snap out of it," I said. I wasn't in the mood.
With a huge effort, Eric reigned himself in. "When you smell like that," he said, "I just wanna fuck you and bite you and rub myself all over you.”
Charlaine Harris

Criss Jami, Killosophy

Aspen Matis
“We opened a second bottle of Merlot on the soft leather of our pretty mint-green couch. I’d been intoxicated only a handful of instances in my life. Bittersweet truth blooming, a dandelion in my heart, I confessed to him that I was feeling rootless. I whispered in the small cave of my love’s ear, “I am a lost ship.”
Aspen Matis, Your Blue Is Not My Blue: A Missing Person Memoir

Aspen Matis
“Shaking my head, I grinned in my defiance, and the room and the whole world became soft and buzzing, lights dangerously unfocused. Our shadows intermingled, a Chagall on the pale wood floor. My thoughts sudden and intriguing, like a rainbow you see for only a second—”

E.F. Benson, Miss Mapp

“Where there is depth, time is irrelevant.”

“I met him & battled not to look into his eyes; secretly drank that yearning eyes. Now I'm a thirsty for lifetime, he made my love intoxicant. We both are deep in this intoxication.

“The [hashishiyyin] Assassins probably knew that the intoxication is a privilege reserved for those who can afford to avoid physical responsibilities. They did not go to work under the influence of the drug for the same reasons that animals in the wild, who must fight for survival, do not overdo their ingestion of intoxicating plants.”
Ronald K. Siegel, Intoxication: The Universal Drive for Mind-Altering Substances

“Picture a man in his living room. He is standing at a closed window opposite the fireplace and looking out at the dark night. As the fire starts to burn, the images of the objects in the room behind him can be seen reflected dimly in the window. As more logs burn and the fire in the fireplace illuminates the room, the man now sees a vivid reflection of himself and the contents of the room, which appears to be outside the window. As the analogy is applied to intoxication, the window is the window of our senses to the world, the fire is the electrical excitation in the brain, and the logs are the drugs that dampen (sedatives) or stoke up (stimulants and hallucinogens) the fire. When the fire is stifled, the man will see very little. But when the fire burns brightly, the glass will reflect the furniture in the rooms of his mind—his images, memories, dreams, and fantasies. The brighter the fire—the more [drugs] in the brain—the more vivid the reflections become until some users step through the window, like Alice going through the looking glass, and behave as if the images were real.”
Ronald K. Siegel, Intoxication: The Universal Drive for Mind-Altering Substances

Robert  Black
“I don’t like to stop drinking, after I start. I would rather not begin at all, than to stop. I don’t like the feeling of sobering up, when I know I could still be drinking. Stopping somehow feels disrespectful to the booze, and the journey.”
Robert Black

“Your drunkenness is so sweet to me that it intoxicates me. You are breathing gently. You are alive. I would like to move over to your side of the world, see into your dreams.”
Mathias Énard, Parle-leur de batailles, de rois et d'éléphants

Mathias Énard
“The beverage is sweet, with a taste of herbs; the first two glasses are drunk quickly, to reach a state one will prolong by slowing down the rhythm. He lets himself give in to the sweet derangement of all his senses.”
Mathias Énard, Parle-leur de batailles, de rois et d'éléphants

“For sensual people, it isn’t the naked body or sex that’s exciting; it’s the anticipation of the unknown.”

“I can feel you
In the air I breathe
I can hear you
In the sounds unimagined
I can see you
In the mists of fantasies
I can touch you
In the hollowness of space
I can think of you
In the movement of time
I can find you
In the words unsaid
I can have you
In my heart for beauty”
iqra iqbal
