quod me nutrit me destruit. ( what nourishes me also destroys me. )

Some things seem to be necessary: drink, drugs of all kinds and excess in general. While this is true only in moderation, excess in moderation, what a strange concept. Yet it is so, too much excess will in time destroy, too little excess will tire and bore. So it would seem we should find the right level of excess. The path of excess leads to the palace of wisdom. (William Blake) quod me nutrit me destruit. (What nurishes me also destroys me.)
