Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Drink
 
Drink to me only with thine eyes,
  And I will pledge with mine;
Or leave a kiss but in the cup,
  And I’ll not look for wine.
        Ben Jonson.—To Celia. The Forest. This song is taken from a collection of love-letters written by Philostratus, an ancient Greek sophist.
  1
Drink boldly and spare not.
        Urquhart’s Rabelais.—Chap. XXXIV.
  2
Drink not the third glass, which thou canst not tame,
  When once it is within thee; but before
Mayst rule it, as thou list; and pour the shame
  Which it would pour on thee, upon the floor.
It is most just to throw that on the ground,
Which would throw me there, if I kept the round.
        George Herbert.—The Temple, Stanza 5.
  3
Drink to-day, and drown all sorrow;
You shall not do it to-morrow:
Best while you have it, use your breath;
There is no drinking after death.
        Beaumont and Fletcher.—The Bloody Brother, Act II. Scene 2.
  4
With frugal nectar
Give the hesitating wheels of life
Gliblier play.
        Armstrong.—On Preserving Health, Line 486.
  5
I see by thy eyes thou hast been reading a little Geneva print.
        Anonymous.—The Merry Devil of Edmonton.
  6
Potations pottle deep.
        Shakespeare.—Othello, Act II. Scene 3. (Iago’s plot against Cassio.)
  7
Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning that they may follow strong drink.
        Isaiah, Chap. v. Ver. 11.
