Other countries drink to get drunk, and this is accepted by everyone; in France, drunkenness is a consequence, never an intention.

Something of vengeance I had tasted for the first time; as aromatic wine it seemed, on swallowing, warm and racy: its after-flavor, metallic and corroding, gave me a sensation as if I had been poisoned.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I may not here omit those two main plagues, and common dotages of human kind, wine and women, which have infatuated and besotted myriads of people. They go commonly together.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Ritual will always mean throwing away something: destroying our corn or wine upon the altar of our gods.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Most Americans are born drunk, and really require a little wine or beer to sober them. They have a sort of permanent intoxication from within, a sort of invisible champagne. Americans do not need to drink to inspire them to do anything, though they do sometimes, I think, need a little for the deeper and more delicate purpose of teaching them how to do nothing.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Power will intoxicate the best hearts, as wine the strongest heads. No man is wise enough, nor good enough to be trusted with unlimited power.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The short bloom of our brief and narrow life flies far away. While we are calling for flowers and wine and woman, old age is upon us.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Good wine needs no bush, and perhaps products that people really want need no hard-sell or soft-sell TV push. Why not? Look at pot.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Water for oxen, wine for kings.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Withnail: Monty used to act.
Monty: I'd hardly say that. It's true I crept the boards in my youth, but I never had it in my blood, and that's what so essential isn't it? The theatrical zeal in the veins. Alas, I have little more that vintage wine and memories.More [11/18/2005 12:11:00]

There are moments when anger spits out of him at Harry and other moments when he can be almost pleasant. You never quite know what he's going to do. People are incredibly scary when they're charming but you suspect they might suddenly do something very violent. If you sit across the table from someone who offers you a glass of wine and a present, but you know that he stabbed his wife to death, it's quite unnerving.More [05/30/2006 12:05:00]
“Instead my life has been like being mashed and mashed through a wine press until finally there will be nothing left but the desire to live by divine will, knowing what I'm really supposed to do and doing it.”More [08/03/2006 12:08:00]

Philip: Ah!You listen more like your mother. Attalus is my family now, the same as you.
Alexander: Then choose your relatives more carefully. Don't expect me to sit here and watch you shame yourself.
Philip: Shame?
Attalus: You insult me!
Alexander: I insult you? Am I not fit to lick the ground my mother walks on?

Paula McFadden: [to woman on the street] Lot of weirdos in this neighborhood.
Elliot Garfield: But just in passing I'd like to say that last night was teriffic, okay? It was the Super Bowl of romance. I give it a fat nine on a scale of ten. You lose one point for burping your wine but all in all it's still a very respectable score.

Paula McFadden: [to woman on street] He is laughable. And silly! You are the silliest man I've ever met.

Paula McFadden: If you don't let go of me I'm going to punch your other eye out!
Elliot Garfield: Paula, you know yourself too well to ignore what I'm saying.
Paula McFadden: Yes, that is exactly why I am trying to ignore it.
Elliot Garfield: You know what we got here? We got Taming of the Shrew, that's what we got here.
Elliot Garfield: [climbing the stairs in the apartment building] Despite the fact that you're one large pain in the arse, last night was the best thing that ever happened to me, girl-wise, and if you weren't behaving like such a horse's rectum you would know that we could be inside touching and fondling all day long until about 5 o'clock when I gotta go to rehearsal. Personally, Madam, I think you blew it.More [01/01/2008 12:01:00]
