Drinking Quotes

The sober devil can hide his cloven hoof; but when the devil drinks he loses his cunning and grows honest. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope Late hours, nocturnal cigars, and midnight drinkings, pleasurable though they may be, consume too quickly the free-flowing lamps of youth, and are fatal at once to the husbanded candle-ends of age. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope A drunkard or a gambler may be weaned from his ways, but not a politician. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope It is a remarkable thing with reference to men who are distressed for money—distressed as was now the case with Mr. Sowerby—that they never seem at a loss for small sums, or deny themselves those luxuries which small sums purchase. Cabs, dinners, wine, theatres, and new gloves are always at the command of men who are drowned in pecuniary embarrassments, whereas those who don't owe a shilling are so frequently obliged to go without them! ~ Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope "I am only myself when I am drunk. Liquor makes me human. At other times I'm merely Charley Steele!" ~ The Right of Way by Gilbert Parker "Fan the sinking flame of hilarity with the wing of friendship; and pass the rosy wine." ~ The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens "I see that a man cannot give himself up to drinking without being miserable one-half his days and mad the other." ~ The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte The dinner was as remarkable for the splendour and completeness of its appointments as the mansion itself, and the company were remarkable for doing it ample justice, in which respect Messrs Pyke and Pluck particularly signalised themselves; these two gentlemen eating of every dish, and drinking of every bottle, with a capacity and perseverance truly astonishing. They were remarkably fresh, too, notwithstanding their great exertions: for, on the appearance of the dessert, they broke out again, as if nothing serious had taken place since breakfast. ~ Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens There are two things that will be believed of any man whatsoever, and one of them is that he has taken to drink. ~ Penrod by Booth Tarkington "I lived on rum, I tell you. It's been meat and drink, and man and wife, to me." ~ Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
