For many years I believed that I remembered helping my grandfather drink his whisky toddy when I was six weeks old, but I do not tell about that any more, now; I am grown old, and my memory is not as active as it used to be. When I was younger I could remember anything, whether it had happened or not; but my faculties are decaying, now, and soon I shall be so I cannot remember any but the latter. It is sad to go to pieces like this, but we all have to do it.mark twain
This gift... which God gave us in order to enable us to perfect ourselves, to learn and to teach, must not be employed in doing that which is for us most degrading and perfectly disgraceful... Those who employ the faculty of thinking and speaking in the service of that sense which is no honour to us, who think more than necessary of drink and love, or even sing of these things; they employ and use the divine gift in acts of rebellion against the Giver, and in transgression of his commandments.maimonides

We disagree so violently on almost everything that it's a real pleasure to drink with him. If nothing else, he's absolutely honest in his lunacy — and I've found, during my admittedly limited experience in political reporting, that power & honesty very rarely coincide.hunter s. thompson
We take a drink only for the sake of the benediction.isaac leib peretz
Wealth is like sea-water; the more we drink, the thirstier we become.Arthur Schopenhauer
They're sharing a drink they call loneliness, but it's better than drinking alone.
Real poverty comes only to those who indulge in food and drink. They have made themselves poor.
'I think this calls for a drink' has long been one of our national slogans.james thurber
By the time a bartender knows what drink a man will have before he orders, there is little else about him worth knowing.
I haven't had an alcoholic drink in 22 years, but when I did drink I'd go for either Canadian whisky or Budweiser. Sometimes both. For a long time I used to think "Hey you, get off the floor!" was my name.alice cooper
drink is in itself a good creature of God, but the abuse of drink is from Satan.increase mather
And if I drink oblivion of a day, So shorten I the stature of my soul.George Meredith
We keep the day. With festal cheer, With books and music, surely we Will drink to him, whate'er he be, And sing the songs he loved to hear.
I prythee, take the cork out of thy mouth that I may drink thy tidings.william shakespeare
