When you meet a sober alcoholic,
You meet a hero.
His mortal enemy slumbers within him;
He can never outrun his disability.
He makes his way through a world of alcohol abuse,
In an environment that does not understand him.
Society, puffed up with shameful ignorance,
Looks on him with contempt,
As if he were a second-class citizen
Because he dares to swim against
the stream of alcohol. But you must know:
No better people are made than this.
Friedrich von Bodelschwingh (1831-1910)
