“Alcohol is a misunderstood vitamin.”
P. G. Wodehouse (1881-1975), English novelist

“In the United States all business not transacted over the telephone is accomplished in conjunction with alcohol or food, often under conditions of advanced intoxication.  This is a fact of the utmost importance for the visitor of limited funds . . . for it means that the most expensive restaurants are, with rare exceptions, the worst.”
John Kenneth Galbraith, economist
 

“An alcoholic is someone you don't like who drinks as much as you do.”
Dylan Thomas
