Nothing Romantic

From what I know about alcoholism, I'd say there's nothing romantic, nothing grand, nothing heroic, nothing brave -- nothing like that about drinking.  It's a real coward's death.

-- Warren William Zevon (24 January 1947 - 7 September 2003), American rock singer-songwriter and musician, as quoted in "Warren Zevon's Resurrection: How he saved himself from a coward's death" by Paul Nelson, Rolling Stone (19 March 1981)
