Cultured Two Paddocks

Quickly, bring me a beaker of wine, so I may wet my mind and say something clever.”      —Aristophanes

Why do we quote the above? Well, firstly we find it amusing. And secondly we want to give the impression that here at H.Q. we are erudite, widely read, scholarly types. Would it were so!

Here’s another one, from The Bacchae:

“To rich and poor alike he (Dionysus) granted the delight of wine, that makes all pain to cease.”      —Euripides

Spookily the Proprietor once appeared in this play, as Pentheus, unfortunately – not the above mentioned Dionysus. Small world! Another wisely forgotten performance…

Alright, just to reinforce how brainy we are, here’s one more:

“Wine was given (to man) as a balm, and in order to implant modesty in the soul, and health and strength in the body.”      —Plato

Are we impressed yet?
