Athenaeus 4.129f (tr. S. Douglas Olson):
He who drinks the most will also be the happiest.

ὁ πλεῖστα πίνων πλεῖστα κεὐφρανθήσεται.

Thanks to Eric Thomson for the corollary (Horace, Odes 1.18.3-4; tr. Niall Rudd):
For the gods have ordained thay everything should be hard for the abstemious, and there is no other way to dispel the worries that gnaw the heart.

siccis omnia nam dura deus proposuit neque
mordaces aliter diffugiunt sollicitudines.
