Quotes To Live By

posted in Useful Info |


I was home on the couch this weekend trying to ignore the throbbing pain in my head from the night before and watching the Simpsons.  It was the episode in which Homer says:

“All right, brain, I don’t like you and you don’t like me – so let’s just do this and I’ll get back to killing you with beer. ”

… Which got me thinking.  What other great drinking quotes must be out there?  And this is what I came up with:

Top 10 Drinking Quotes of All Time

2 – “I drink to make other people interesting” –George Jean Nathan

3 – “I feel sorry for people who don’t drink. When they wake up in the morning, that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day” – Frank Sinatra

    Great List!!

    However, I must say that the Steve Allen quote definitely needed to be more than an honorable mention
