Roman playwright of the Old Latin period
Fan the sinking flame of hilarity with the wing of friendship; and pass the rosy wine.charles dickens
Sure there was wine Before my sighs did dry it; there was corn Before my tears did drown it. 398George Herbert
Your pretended fear lest error should step in, is like the man that would keep all the wine out of the country lest men should be drunk. It will be found an unjust and unwise jealousy, to deny a man the liberty he hath by nature upon a supposition that he may abuse it.Oliver Cromwell
This wine is too good for toast-drinking, my dear. You don't want to mix emotions up with a wine like that. You lose the taste.ernest hemingway
If you have a grateful heart (which is a miracle amongst you statesmen), show it by directing the bearer to the best wine in town, and pray let not this highest point of sacred friendship be performed slightly, but go about it with all due deliberation and care, as holy priests to sacrifice, or as discreet thieves to the wary performance of burglary and shop-lifting. Let your well-discerning palate (the best judge about you) travel from cellar to cellar and then from piece to piece till it has lighted on wine fit for its noble choice and my approbation.wilmot, john, 2nd earl of rochester

"A sack," Baudolino explained, like a man who knows a trade well, "is like a grape harvest: you have to divide the tasks. There are those who press the grapes, those who carry off the must in the tuns, those who cook for others, others who go to fetch the good wine from last year.... a sack is a serious job".Umberto Eco
I throw a kiss across the sea, I drink the winds as drinking wine. And dream they all are blown from thee, I catch the whisper'd kiss of thine.joaquin miller
Well might the thoughtful race of old With ivy twine the head Of him they hailed their god of wine Thank God:;! the lie is dead; For ivy climbs the crumbling hall To decorate decay; And spreads its dark deceitful pall To hide what wastes away.philip james bailey
Old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.
When the wine goes in, strange things come out.
This bottle's the sun of our table, His beams are rosy wine; We planets that are not able Without his help to shine.Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Narrated AbuHurayrah: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: If he is intoxicated, flog him; again if he is intoxicated, flog him; again if he is intoxicated, flog him if he does it again a fourth time, kill him. AbuDawud said: And there is a similar tradition of Umar ibn AbuSalamah, from his father, on the authority of AbuHurayrah, from the Prophet (peace be upon him): If he drinks wine, flog him if he does it so again, a fourth time, kill him..
One that loves a cup of hot wine with not a drop of allaying Tiber in ’t.
