Day and night my thoughts incline to the blandishments of wine. Jars were made to drain, I think; wine, I know, was made to drink.
Prodigality is indeed the vice of a weak nature, as avarice is of a strong one; it comes of a weak craving for those Blandishments of the world which are easily to be had for money, and which, when obtained, are as much worse than worthless as a harlot's love is worse than none.henry taylor
Blandishments will not fascinate us, nor will threats of a "halter" intimidate. For, under God, we are determined that wheresoever, whensoever, or howsoever we shall be called to make our exit, we will die free men.
