What is better than to sit at the table at the end of the day and drink wine with friends, or substitutes for friends?
                                  ~ James Joyce

Wine has been to me a firm friend and a wise counsellor. Wine has lit up for me the pages of literature, and revealed in life romance lurking in the commonplace.  Wine has made me bold, but not foolish; has induced me to say silly things, but not do them. If such small indiscretions standing in the debit column of wine's account were added up, they would amount to nothing in comparison with the vast accumulation on the credit side.
            ~ Duff Cooper, "Old Men Forget"
