• Wine give strenght to weary men. and
    And wine can of their wits the wise beguile.
    Make the sage frolic, and the serious smile. and
    Let those who drink not, but austerely dine,
    Dry up in law; the muses smell of wine. and
    No poem was ever written by a drinker of water. and
    Bacchus opens the gate of the heart. and
    Might to inspire new hopes and powerful
    To drown the bitterness of cares.
