Bacchus Quotes
Food & Bacchus Quotes

“Bacchus, n. A convenient diety invented by the ancients as an excuse for getting drunk.”

Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)
'The Devil's Dictionary' (1911)



“I love drinking now and then. It defecates the standing pool of thought. A man perpetually in the paroxysm and fears of inebriety is like a half-drowned stupid wretch condemned to labor unceasingly in water; but a now-and-then tribute to Bacchus is like the cold bath, bracing and invigorating.”

Robert Burns (1759-1796) Scottish Poet
