Traveling across the seething caldron they call the Internet, I came across this site Quisby Quote. I was looking for a memorable quote to add to a short article I had written. Two of my favorites are...

Sir Winston Churchill:
"I make a martini by glancing across the room at the vermouth while the bartender pours the gin."

Or this one by Phillip, Duke of Edinborough:
"Champagne and orange juice is a great drink. The orange improves the champagne. The champagne definitely improves the orange. "

So, what is your favorite quote from a famous drinker? :drunk:

I always drink martinis, one or two at the most.
After three I'm under the table, after four I'm under the host.

Ha! Reminds me of Mitch Hedburg..

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
― M. Python.

Son, never trust a man who doesn’t drink because he’s probably a self-righteous sort, a man who thinks he knows right from wrong all the time. Some of them are good men, but in the name of goodness, they cause most of the suffering in the world. They’re the judges, the meddlers. And, son, never trust a man who drinks but refuses to get drunk. They’re usually afraid of something deep down inside, either that they’re a coward or a fool or mean and violent. You can’t trust a man who’s afraid of himself. But sometimes, son, you can trust a man who occasionally kneels before a toilet. The chances are that he is learning something about humility and his natural human foolishness, about how to survive himself. It’s damned hard for a man to take himself too seriously when he’s heaving his guts into a dirty toilet bowl.”
― James Crumley

Personal Statement: One drink beyond
“Drinking is an emotional thing. It joggles you out of the standardism of everyday life, out of everything being the same. It yanks you out of your body and your mind and throws you against the wall. I have the feeling that drinking is a form of suicide where you're allowed to return to life and begin all over the next day. It's like killing yourself, and then you're reborn. I guess I've lived about ten or fifteen thousand lives now.”
Charles Bukowski

“I like to change liquor stores frequently because the clerks got to know your habits if you went in night and day and bought huge quantities. I could feel them wondering why I wasn't dead yet and it made me uncomfortable. They probably weren't thinking any such thing, but then a man gets paranoid when he has 300 hangovers a year.”
Charles Bukowski

“An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools.”
Ernest Hemingway

“For art to exist, for any sort of aesthetic activity or perception to exist, a certain physiological precondition is indispensable: intoxication.”
Friedrich Nietzsche
