    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    Wine gives a man nothing. It neither gives him knowledge nor wit; it only animates a man, and enables him to bring out what a dread of the company has repressed. It only puts in motion what had been locked up in frost.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    till disproportion’d sin
    Jarr’d against natures chime, and with harsh din
    Broke the fair musick that all creatures made
    To their great Lord, whose love their motion sway’d
    In perfect Diapason, whilst they stood
    In first obedience, and their state of good.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
