The Pub…

“Drink, sir, is a great provoker of three things . . . nose-painting, sleep, and urine. Lechery, sir, it provokes, and un-provokes; it provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance.”
William Shakespeare

An interesting take on the “idea” of the public meeting house better known as “the pub”…

And no, this is not about glorifying alcohol:

In Praise of Pubs

The problem with some people is that when they aren’t drunk they’re sober.
William Butler Yeats

Author:

"If he's honest, he'll steal; if he's human, he'll murder; if he's faithful, he'll deceive. Being at a loss to resolve these questions, I am resolved to leave them without any resolution." I have so much to say to you that I am afraid I shall tell you nothing."
