JEAN SIRMOND
French Latin poet
(1589? - 1649)

If all be true that I do think,
  There are five reasons we should drink;
    Good wine--a friend--or being dry--
      Or lest we should be by and by--
        Or any other reason why.
          [Lat., Si bene commemini, causae sunt quinque bibendi;
            Hospitis adventus, praesens sitis, atque futura,
              Aut vini bonitas, aut quaelibet altera causa.]
      - attributed to,
        by Menage and De la Monnoye, see "Menagiana," vol. I, p. 172
        [Drinking]

Tippecanoe and Tyler too.
      - political slogan for William Henry Harrison and John Tyler attributed to Orson E. Woodbury
        [Politics]
