Quote me on drinking? [Apr. 30th, 2004|12:16 pm]
Peter Sheil
After posting an entry in pearls_b4_swine I was hunting for the attribution of a verse and came across many quotes on drinking. Here are a few for your delectation, they are certainly a fair selection to make you smile and ponder.


For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command or faith a dictum. I am my own God. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.
Charles Bukowski

Be wary of strong drink. It can make you shoot at tax collectors and miss.
Lazarus Long, "Time Enough for Love"

Strategy is buying a bottle of fine wine when you take a lady out for dinner. Tactics is getting her to drink it.
Frank Muir

Drink to me.
Pablo Picasso (1881 - 1973), last words
