• O drink is mighty! secrets it unlocks, Turns hope to fact, sets cowards on to box, Takes burdens from the careworn, finds out parts In stupid folks, and teaches unknown arts. What tongue hangs fire when quickened by the bowl? What wretch so poor but wine expands his soul?

    Horace (2013). “Delphi Complete Works of Horace (Illustrated)”, p.362, Delphi Classics
