Eat, Drink and be Merry Quotes

"A man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry."

Ecclesiastes’ 8:15

Or in other words:
“There is nothing under the sun better for man than to eat, drink, and be merry. Go, therefore, eat your bread with joy and drink your wine with cheer.”

‘Ecclesiastes’ 8:15

 

    “Now Christmas comes, 'tis fit that we
    should feast and sing, and merry be:
    Keep open house, let fidlers play.
    A fig for cold, sing care away;
    And may they who thereat repine,
    On brown bread and on small beer dine.”

    from the 1766 ‘Virginia Almanack’

 

“The leaves and floures of Borrage put into wine make men and women glad and merry, driving away all sadnesse, dulnesse, and melancholy, as Dioscorides and Pliny affirme.  Syrrup made of the floures of Borrage comforteth the heart, purgeth melancholy, and quieteth the phrenticke or lunaticke person.”

John Gerard
‘The Herball, or General Historie of Plantes’ (1597)

 

“Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast.”

William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
