Man, being reasonable, must get drunk

Stop Button Clutter!
'Tis melancholy, and a fearful sign
Lord Byron, English poet (1788-1824)

'Tis melancholy, and a fearful sign
Of human frailty, folly, also crime,
That love and marriage rarely can combine,
Although they both are born in the same clime;
Marriage from love, like vinegar from wine
A sad, sour, sober beverage by time
Is sharpened from its high celestial flavor
Down to a very homely household savor.

Canto II, stanza 5 from Don Juan (1857)
