Friedrich Nietzsche was very vocally against drinking, he equated it with Christianity in fact. Though he wasn’t shy about drug use, both recreationally and to treat a myriad of physical ailments that he suffered from his whole life.
That being said, he was a brilliant man and his musings on this particular time of year match my own. I’m no fan of summer and those first few crisp fall days, mean everything to me. A renewed hope and sense of vigor deep down inside.
Cheers Mr. Nietzsche, even if you wouldn’t have back.
