What is strong drink?

Famous quotes containing the words drink and/or strong:

    Her face is like the moon.
    Her mouth tastes like the drink of life.
    Her wild, hot kiss
    with a pull of her hair ...
    what’s THAT like?
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)

    Perhaps I stand now on the eve of a new life, shall watch the sun rise and disappear behind a black cloud extending out into a grey sky cover. I shall not be deceived by its glory. If it is to be so, there is work and the influence that work brings, but not happiness. Am I strong enough to face that?
    Beatrice Potter Webb (1858–1943)
