A Vital Difference

"Uwais, the Sufi, was once asked:
“What has Grace brought you?” 
He replied: 
“When I wake in the morning I feel like a man who is not sure he will live till evening.” 
Said the questioner: 
“But doesn’t everyone know this?” 
Said Uwais: “They certainly do. But not all of them feel it.” 

No one ever became drunk on the word wine."
