Homer (flourished c. 700 BCE)

“This is the effect of wine – it makes people do crazy things;
it sets the wisest man singing and giggling stupidly; it lures him
on to dance and it makes him blurt out what’s better left unsaid.”

  • The Odyssey (Book 14, approximately between lines 460-470) by Homer, translated by E. V. Rieu and edited by D. C. H. Rieu. New York: Penguin Classics, 2009
