I do not so think as you drunk I am.
You’re not drunk
if you can lie on the floor without holding on.
When angry, count to four;
when very angry, swear.
Mark Twain (1835-1910), American author and humorist
I kissed my first girl and smoked my first cigarette on the same day.
I haven’t had time for tobacco since.
Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.
Warren Buffett (1930- ), one of the wealthiest people in the world
A human being has a natural desire to have more of a good thing that he needs.
Mark Twain (1835-1910), Following the Equator
Wine laughs at you,
and strong drink shouts at you in anger.
The Bible, Proverbs 20:1
At the first cup, you drink wine.
At the second cup, wine drinks wine.
After that, wine drinks you.
Free yourselves from the slavery of tea and coffee and other kettle waste.
That’s all that drugs and alcohol do.
They cut off your emotions in the end.
Ringo Star (1940- )
It is best to hide that we are stupid,
but it is hard to do this when we relax over wine.
Heraclitus (540-480 BC), On the Universe
Smoking is ugly to the eye,
bad to the nose,
and dangerous to the brain and lungs.
James I (James VI of Scotland), (1566-1625),
A Counterblast to Tobacco (1604),
