Famous quotes containing the word alcoholic:

    An alcoholic has been lightly defined as a man who drinks more than his own doctor.
    Alvan L. Barach (1895–1977)

    The alcoholic trance is not just a haze, as though the eyes were also unshaven. It is not a mere buzzing in the ears, a dizziness or disturbance of balance. One arrives in the garden again, at nursery time, when the gentle animals are fed and in all the world there are only toys.
    William Gass (b. 1924)
