I love wine. I drink it almost every day. A glass of wine is all I need to unwind from a hectic day. One of my other favorite things is quotes. While I was reorganizing my wine rack today, I got the idea to look up some quotes on wine and share them with my fellow winos out there. Enjoy!
“Close friends contribute to our personal growth. They also contribute to our personal pleasure, making the music sound sweeter, the wine taste richer, the laughter ring louder because they are there.” – Judith Viorist. I love this. The way she ties in wine with all the best things in life makes so much sense to me.
“Age appears to be best in four things; old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.” – Francis Bacon. This quote makes me wish for a rainy day when I can curl up with a glass of wine and re-read a favorite book.
“Men are like wine – some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.” – Pope John XXIII. This of course makes me think of my husband.
“O thou invisible spirit of wine, if thou hast no name to be known by, let us call thee devil.” – William Shakespeare. Ha! I can’t say I share Shakespeare’s sentiment, but I definitely know what’s saying.
“It is time to get drunk! So as not to be the martyred slaves of Time, get drunk; get drunk without stopping! On wine, on poetry, or on virtue, as you wish.” – Charles Baudelaire. Sometimes drunk isn’t a bad thing afterall!
Last but not least, my favorite wine quote: “I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food.” – W.C. Fields
I hope you enjoyed reading my favorite wine quotes, friends. I would love to hears yours as well! Be merry!
