Words of Wisdom
Some of you have been following us on Twitter and have noticed that we have been posting quotes and words of wisdom throughout the day. I have been researching wine quotes and have found some really inspiring thoughts. I think we, as enthusiasts, tend to look for the gusto in life and many of us know how to voice that gusto with ease and flair.
A woman drove me to drink, and I’ll be a son-of-a-gun but I never even wrote to thank her. ~ W. C. Fields
Drink is the feast of reason and the flow of soul. ~ Alexander Pope
Wine rejoices the heart of man and joy is the mother of all virtues. ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1771
“Wine is sunlight, held together by water! ~ Galileo Gallilei
From wine what sudden friendship springs! ~ John Gay 1685 – 1732
Wine gives strength to weary men. ~ Homer
One not only drinks the wine, one smells it, observes it, tastes it, sips it and–one talks about it. ~ King Edward VII
Where there is no wine there is no love. ~ Euripides
These are just a few. There are thousands upon thousands of quotes out there.
I am truly thankful for the wonderful people that I have met through this lifestyle both in person and online. The words of the masters and the word of my friends are interchangeable and for the most part impossible to distinguish between. If given a list of quotes I couldn’t tell by the wisdom alone whether it came from one of the great thinkers of all times, the bartender at the local wine bar, one of the many #wine lovers on twitter or the guy I run into every year at the members concert at Chateau Ste. Michelle.
I know that some of you have quotes or words of wisdom either your own or your favorites to share and I would love to hear them. Feel free to leave them here as a comment and I will add it to my encyclopedia of cool stuff with credit given to you of course.
