F. Scott Fitzgerald about drinking (“The Beautiful and Damned”, 1922) - But he hated to be sober. It made him conscious of the people around him, of that air of struggle, of greedy ambition, of hope more sordid than despair, of incessant passage up or down, which in every metropolis is most in evidence through the unstable middle class.
