What cannot wine perform? It brings to light The secret soul; it bids the coward fight; Gives being to our hopes, and from our hearts Drives the dull sorrow, and inspires new arts. Is there a wretch whom bumpers have not taught A flow of words, and loftiness of thought? Even in th oppressive grasp of poverty It can enlarge, and bid the soul be free. Francis Horace.Book I. Epi. V. Line 23.
