Theognis 989-990

 

“Drink whenever they drink but let no man discover you’re burdened

whenever you’re sick in the heart.”

 

Πῖν’ ὁπόταν πίνωσιν· ὅταν δέ τι θυμὸν ἀσηθῆις,

μηδεὶς ἀνθρώπων γνῶι σε βαρυνόμενον.

 

I am not positive that this is good advice. It sounds nice…

(Theognis alone is intoxicating.)
