If you wish to keep the mind clear and the body healthy, abstain from all fermented liquors.
      - Sydney Smith

It is all nonsense about not being able to work without ale and cider and fermented liquors. Do lions and cart-horses drink ale?
      - Sydney Smith

There is no difference between knowledge and temperance; for he who knows what is good and embraces it, who knows what is bad and avoids it, is learned and temperate.
      - Socrates

Temperance is a virtue which casts the truest lustre upon the person it is lodged in, and has the most general influence upon all other particular virtues of any that the soul of man is capable of; indeed so general, that there is hardly any noble quality or endowment of the mind, but must own temperance either for its parent or its nurse; it is the greatest strengthener and clearer of reason, and the best preparer of it for religion, the sister of prudence, and the handmaid to devotion.
      - Bishop Robert South

There is hardly any noble quantity or endowment of the mind but must own temperance, either for its parent or its nurse.
      - Bishop Robert South

Temperance is reason's girdle and passion's bridle, the strength of the soul and the foundation of virtue.
      - Jeremy Taylor

O temperance, thou fortune without envy; thou universal medicine of life, that clears the head and cleanses the blood, eases the stomach, strengthens the nerves, and perfects digestion.
      - Sir William Temple

Temperance, that virtue without pride, and fortune without envy, that gives indolence of body with an equality of mind; the best guardian of youth and support of old age; the precept of reason as well as religion, and physician of the soul as well as the body; the tutelar goddess of health and universal medicine of life.
      - Sir William Temple

The universal medicine of life.
      - Sir William Temple

Use, do not abuse; neither abstinence nor excess ever renders man happy.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

Temperance is the nurse of chastity.
      - William Wycherley
