“Whenever the devil harasses you, seek the company of men or drink more, or joke and talk nonsense, or do some other merry thing. Sometimes we must drink more, sport, recreate ourselves, and even sin a little to spite the devil, so that we leave him no place for troubling our consciences with trifles. We are conquered if we try too conscientiously not to sin at all. So when the devil says to you: do not drink, answer him: I will drink, and right freely, just because you tell me not to.” 
― Martin Luther

My great-aunt once told me that a man becomes what he worships
I was ten and the only reason I remember what she said is because I’d never seen Jesus on earth
I think my ancestors and great-aunt worshipped Old English 800
