In the Vineyard

Hail noble fruit - by Homer sung,
Anacreon and Khayyam,
Thy praise is ever on the tongue
Of better men than I am. (Ambrose Bierce)

Bacchus we thank who gave us wine

Which warms the blood within our veins;

That nectar is itself divine. (Pierre Matin)

If God forbade drinking, would He have made wine so good? (Cardinal Richeleu)

Drink wine, and you will sleep well. Sleep, and you will not sin. Avoid sin, and you will be saved. Ergo, drink wine and be saved. (Medieval German saying)
