If a man go into the London Docks sober without means of getting drunk, and comes out of one of the cellars very drunk wherein are a million gallons of wine, I think that would be reasonable evidence that he had stolen some of the wine in that cellar, though you could not prove that any wine was stolen, or any wine was missed.william henry maule
Far from New England's blustering shore,New England's worm her hulk shall bore,And sink her in the Indian seas,Twine, wine, and hides, and China teas.Henry David Thoreau
You may think life is sweet now, but when death is a heartbeat away then life becomes unbearably desirable. And when you survive, everything you do will be enhanced and filled with greater joy: the sunlight, the breeze, a good wine, a woman's lips, a child's laughter.david gemmell
There is some delight in ale and wine And some in girls with ankles fine But my delight, yes always mine Is to dance with Jak O’ the Shadows We will toss the dice however they fall And snuggle the girls be they short or tall Then follow lord Mat whenever he calls To dance with Jak O’ the Shadows.robert jordan
Cursed be all those on land and sea who eat their fill, cursed be all those who starve yet raise no hand in protest, cursed be all the bread, the wine, the meat which day by day descends deep in the entrails of the exploited man and turns not into freedom's cry, the murderer's ruthless knife!Nikos Kazantzakis
I have drunken deep of joy, And I will taste no other wine tonight.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Most of the confidence which I appear to feel, especially when influenced by noon wine, is only a pretense.tennessee williams
I am pretty conventional , I was raised by a strict mother who said, 'Be sure to open doors and say please thank you and pull up the chair.' So I would take her for a great dinner with good ambience, low lighting, great food and a good bottle of wine. I like to be inquisitive and ask a lot of questions. I am not an ironic dating guy; I don't say, 'Let's go bowling.'Chris pine
One should worship the Supreme Goddess with blood, meat and wine.Yogini Tantra
We are the greatest people, sitting on our old street, the best wine in the world, much better than that of the French. We are rich and cultural, and we are better than the other nations, richest in the world, high-class beyond other countries, better than England or Germany, we know we will be praised, as Luxies, of Luxembourg.
If you want to start an argument in the wine world – and believe me, it’s not hard to do – all you have to do is mention the word terroir.
The seed of Sufism sown in the time of Adam , germed in the time of Nuh , budded in the time of Ibrahim , began to develop in the time of Musa , reached maturity in the time of Christ , produced pure wine in the time of Muhammad .
Oh, meet is the reverence unto Bacchus paid! We will praise him still in the songs of our fatherland, We will pour the sacred wine, the chargers lade, And the victim kid shall unresisting stand, Led by his horns to the altar, where we turn The hazel spits while the dripping entrails burn.
I love everything that's old: old friends, old times, old manners, old books, old wine.Oliver Goldsmith
Let Nepos place Cæretan wine on table, and you will deem it Setine. But he does not give it to all the world; he drinks it only with a trio of friends.
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
Food probably has a very great influence on the condition of men. wine exercises a more visible influence, food does it more slowly but perhaps just as surely. Who knows if a well-prepared soup was not responsible for the pneumatic pump or a poor one for a war?Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
