"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were.
After the second, you see things as they are not.
Finally, you see things as they really are,
which is the most horrible thing in the world."
"Let me be mad...
mad with the madness
of Absinthe, the wildest, most
luxurious madness in the world."
"Art is the soul of life and the Old Absinthe House
is heart and soul of the old quarter of New Orleans."
