Some Alcohol Quotes

Some of my favorite quotes linked with alcohol:

Stay busy, get plenty of exercise, and don't drink too much. Then again, don't drink too little. Herman "Jackrabbit" Smith-Johannsen

A hangover is the wrath of grapes. Unknown

Wine is bottled poetry. Robert Louis Stevenson

O God, that men should put an enemy in their mouths to steal away their brains! that we should, with joy, pleasance, revel, and applause, transform ourselves into beasts! William Shakespeare, Othello

If four or five guys tell you that you're drunk, even though you know you haven't had a thing to drink, the least you can do is to lie down a little while. Joseph Schenck

A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside, "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills." Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

I like liquor - its taste and its effects - and that is just the reason why I never drink it. Thomas Jackson

Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, it is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver. Jack Handey

I like to keep a bottle of stimulant handy in case I see a snake, which I also keep handy. W.C. Fields
