A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on alcoholics

If we take habitual drunkards as a class, their heads and their hearts will bear an advantageous comparison with those of any other class.  There seems ever to have been a proneness in the brilliant and warm-blooded to fall in to this vice.  The demon of intemperance ever seems to have delighted in sucking the blood of genius and generosity.  ~Abraham Lincoln, address to the Washington Temperance Society, Springfield, Illinois, 22 February 1842
