Wine
 
Wine is like anger; for it makes us strong,
Blind and impatient, and it leads us wrong;
The strength is quickly lost; we feel the error long.
            —George Crabbe

Wine is like rain: when it falls on the mire it but makes it the fouler,
But when it strikes the good soil it wakes it to beauty and bloom.
            —John Hay
