"I have made a lot of mistakes falling in love, and regretted most of them, but never the potatoes that went with them."
Nora Ephron, ‘Heartburn’
"When the cook makes a mistake, it is the flute player who receives the blows."
ancient Greek proverb
“Indigestion: A disease which the patient and his friends frequently mistake for deep religious conviction and concern for the salvation of mankind. As the simple Red Man of the Western Wild put it, with, it must be confessed, a certain force: 'Plenty well, no pray; big belly ache, heap God.'”
Ambrose Bierce, American writer (1842-1914)
‘The Devil's Dictionary’ (1906)
“The dipsomaniac and the abstainer are not only both mistaken, but they both make the same mistake. They both regard wine as a drug and not as a drink.”
G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936)
“Wine gives a man nothing. It neither gives him knowledge nor wit; it only animates a man, and enables him to bring out what a dread of the company has repressed. This is one of the disadvantages of wine: it makes a man mistake words for thoughts.”
Samuel Johnson, English writer, lexicographer, critic and conversationalist (1709-1784)
