    While I shall not vote for the prohibition amendment, I would like to see a good, wholesome expression of temperance sentiment....

    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    Oh, who will now be able to relate how Pantagruel behaved in face of these three hundred giants! Oh my muse, my Calliope, my Thalie, inspire me now, restore my spirits, because here is the ass’s bridge of logic, here is the pitfall, here is the difficulty of being able to describe the horrible battle undertaken.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)

    And the wind shall say “Here were decent godless people;
    Their only monument the asphalt road
    And a thousand lost golf balls.”
