The sign of decay is not in the public- house, but in the private bar; or rather the row of five or six private bars, into each of which a respectable dipsomaniac can go in solitude, and by indulging his own half- witted sin violate his own half- witted morality.- "George Bernard Shaw", Gilbert K. Chesterton.
