Johnson.

  Shall I not take mine ease in mine inn?
Shakespeare.

  There is nothing which has yet been contrived by man, by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern or inn.
Johnson.

  He who has not been at a tavern knows not what a paradise it is. O holy tavern! O miraculous tavern!—holy, because no carking cares are there, nor weariness, nor pain: and miraculous, because of the spits, which of themselves turn round and round!
Aretino.
