Best Quotations for Drinking

Drunkenness is temporary suicide:the happiness that it brings id merely negative,a momentary cessation of unhappiness.
                    -Bertrand Russel.1,The conquest of happiness

There was an old hen
And she had a wooden leg,
And every damned morning
She laid another egg;
She was the best damned chicken
And another little drink
Wouldn't do us any harm
                                                     -American Folksong

It's along time between drinks.

He is drunkard who takes more than three glasses,though he be not drunk

Drink today,and drown all sorrow;
You shall perhaps not do it tomorrow
                                                       -John Fletcher,The Bloody Brother

Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning,that they may follow strong drink;that continue until night,till wine inflame them
                           -Isaiah . V. II

The habit of using ardent spirits by men in office has occasioned more injury to the public,and more trouble to me,then all the other cases.Were I to commence my administration again,the first question I would ask respecting a candidate for office would be,Does he use ardent spirits?

I would appeal to Philip,she said,but not to Philip sober
                                                                              -Valerius Maximu

Drink!for you know not fence whence you came,nor why:
Drink!for you know not why you go,nor where
                                                                          -Omar Khayyam,Rubaiyat

All excess is ill,but drunkenness is of the worst sort.It spoils health,dismounts the mind,and unmans men.It reveals secrets,is quarrelsome,lascivious,impudent,dangerous and bad.
                                                                                                         -William Penn

There St.John mingles with my friendly bowl
The feat of reason and the flow of soul.
                                                           -Pope,Second Book of Horace

Water is the only drink for a wise man
