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
No lesson seems to be so deeply inculcated by the experience of life as that you should never trust experts. If you believe the doctors, nothing is wholesome: if you believe the theologians, nothing is innocent: if you believe the soldiers, nothing is safe. Theyall require to have their strong wine diluted by a very large admixture of insipid common sense.Marquess of Salisbury Robert
And wine can of their wits the wise beguile, Make the sage frolic, and the serious smile.Alexander Pope
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

what little blood is left
will fizz like wine in a keg

He who desires a lifetime of happiness with a beautiful woman desires to enjoy the taste of wine by keeping his mouth always full of it.George Bernard Shaw
Grape on the vine... why not be crushed to make wine?MewithoutYou
Sparkling and bright, in liquid light does the wine our goblets gleam in. With hue as red as the rosy bed which a bee would choose to dream in.Charles Fenno Hoffman
With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come, And let my liver rather heat with wine Than my heart cool with mortifying groans.william shakespeare
Outdid the meat, outdid the frolic wine.
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
Of threads of palm was the carpet spun Whereon he kneels when the day is done, And the foreheads of Islam are bowed as one! To him the palm is a gift divine, Wherein all uses of man combine, House and raiment and food and wine! And, in the hour of his great release, His need of the palms shall only cease With the shroud wherein he lieth in peace. "Allah il Allah!" he sings his psalm, On the Indian Sea, by the isles of balm; "Thanks to Allah, who gives the palm!"john greenleaf whittier
Old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.
Forsake not an old friend; for the new is not comparable to him: a new friend is as new wine; when it is old, thou shalt drink it with pleasure.
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
One that loves a cup of hot wine with not a drop of allaying Tiber in ’t.
"I'd rather see you drink a glass of wine than a glass of milk."jack la lanne
