I was told when a young man that the two occupational hazards of the Palace of Varieties were Alcohol and adultery. The hurroosh that follows the intermittent revelation of the sexual goings-on of an unlucky MP has convinced me that the only safe pleasure for a parliamentarian is a bag of boiled sweets.SirJulian Michael Gordon Critchley
L'alcool est le monarque des liquides, et porte au dernier degre l'exaltation palatale. Alcohol is the prince of liquids, and carries the palate to its highest pitch of exaltation.Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
Alcohol is a very necessaryarticle? It makes life bearable to millions of people who could not endure their existence if they were quite sober. It enables Parliament to do things at eleven at night that no sane person would do at eleven in the morning.George Bernard Shaw

When I was young I hated my body because it was so thin -- now I try not to look at it too much because it's so old.
