Purcelll: Nestor, who did thrice man’s age attain Z.503


Nestor who did thrice man’s age attain; By vast experience found, That busy statesmen did project in vain, When bumpers pass’d not briskly round. This maxim then he to his master gave, When he in council should debate; Not Trojan like, to sit morose and grave, But drink and so support the state.
