I picked up this quote from Ulysses somewhere, I didn’t read the book. 

“It is the Wine that leads me on, the wild wine. The wine that sets the wisest man to sing at the top of his lungs and laugh like a fool. Sometimes it drives a man to dancing, it even tempts him to blurt out stories better left untold.”
