Day 76: March 17 – Bacchus Has Drowned More Men Than Neptune

~ The Temple of Apollo, Ancient Corinth


Garden Obelisk

All men can know themselves and control themselves.

A man when he is drunk is led by a beardless boy, stumbling, not knowing where he goes, his soul moist.

A dry soul is wisest and best.

~ Heraclitus
