(This is a distich by wise old Phocylides, An ancient who wrote crabbed Greek in no silly days; Meaning, 'TIS RIGHT FOR GOOD WINE-BIBBING PEOPLE NOT TO LET THE JUO PACE ROUND THE BOARD LIKE A CRIPPLE; BUT GAILY TO CHAT WHILE DISCUSSING THEIR TIPPLE." An excellent rule of the hearty old cock 'tisAnd a very fit motto to put to our Noctes.]
