Good wine needs no bush.
      - William Shakespeare

I am known to be a humorous patrician, and one that loves a cup of hot wine with not a drop of allaying Tiber in't; said to be something imperfect in favoring the first complaint; hasty and tinder-like upon too trivial motion; one that converses more with the buttock of the night than with the forehead of the morning.
      - William Shakespeare, Coriolanus
         (Menenius at II, i)

Give me a bowl of wine.
  In this I bury all unkindness. Cassius.
      - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
         (Brutus at IV, iii)

Come, come, good wine is a good familiar creature if it be well used. Exclaim no more against it.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at II, iii)

O thou invisible spirit of wine, if thou hast no name to be known by, let us call thee devil!
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Cassio at II, iii)

Give me a bowl of wine.
  I have not that alacrity of spirit
    Nor cheer of mind that I was wont to have.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at V, iii)

Wine is bottled poetry.
      - Robert Louis Stevenson

Day and night my thoughts incline
  To the blandishments of wine,
    Jars were made to drain, I think;
      Wine, I know, was made to drink.
      - Richard Henry Stoddard, A Jar of Wine

Wine has drowned more than the sea.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus)

You need not hang up the ivy branch over the wine that will sell.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims (968)

When the wine's in, murder will out.
      - The Talmud, Talmud, Erubin (65)

A man may acquire a taste for wine or brandy, and so lose his love for water, but should we not pity him.
      - Henry David Thoreau

Drinking of wine brings poverty, shame, quarrels; leads to calumnious talk, unchastity, murder, and the loss of freedom, of honor, of understanding.
      - Tosafot

He has had a smack of every sort of wine, from humble port to Imperial Tokay.
      - Rev. James Townley, High Life below Stairs

The hop for his profit I thus do exalt,
  It strengthened drink, and it favoureth malt:
    And being well brewed, long kept it will last,
      And drawing abide--if you draw not too fast.
      - Thomas Tusser,
        Five Hundred Points of Good Husbandrie--A Lesson to Plant A Good Hop-Yard
         (ch. XLIII)

The proper union of gin and vermouth is a great and sudden glory; it is one of the happiest marriages on earth, and one of the shortest lived.
      - Bernard De Voto, in "Harper's Magazine"

And must I wholly banish hence
  These red and golden juices,
    And pay my vows to Abstinence,
      That pallidest of Muses?
      - Sir William Watson (2),
        To a Maiden who bade me shun Wine

Liquor and love rescue the cloudy sense banish its despair give it a home.
      - William Carlos Williams
