Quote for the new T-shirt. Please vote!


We are creating a new T-shirt for TWH and we need your help to decide which quotes we should use. Choose the ones that you like the most (up to 3 please).

1) Alcohol, if taken in sufficient quantities, can give one the illusion of drunkenness. – Oscar Wilde
2) I have enjoyed great health at a great age because every day since I can remember I have consumed a bottle of wine except when I have not felt well. Then I have consumed two bottles. - Bishop of Seville
3) She gets to keep the chalet and the Rolls, I want the Montrachet. - Anonymous
4) What is better than to sit at the end of the day and drink wine with friends, or substitutes for friends? - James Joyce
5) When asked what wine he liked to drink, he replied, "That which belongs to another." - Diognes Laertius
6) When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading. - Henny Youngman
7) My grandmother is over eighty and still doesn't need glasses. Drinks right out of the bottle. - Henny Youngman
8) I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day. – Frank Sinatra
9) Consuming wine in moderation daily will help people to die young as late as possible. - Dr Philip Norrie
10) Always carry a corkscrew and the wine shall provide itself. - Basil Bunting
11) Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut. - Ernest Hemingway
12) Wine improves with age. The older I get, the better I like it. – Anonymous
13) I spent ninety percent of my money on wine, women and song and just wasted the other ten percent. - Ronnie Hawkins
14) Burgundy makes you think of silly things, Bordeaux makes you talk of them and Champagne makes you do them. - Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
15) Small people talk about things, average people talk about ideas, and great people talk about wine. – Peter Lanberg

Or... you can suggest one…

Your help is greatly appreciated.

I didn't like any of the quotes involving drunkenness. I don't drink wine in order to get drunk. #15 is pretty good. I'd say you need to keep looking.

decanted diva said...

14, 1 & 2 are my picks...but you've left out all of the great quotes from Ben Franklin..."Wine is proof that god loves us and wants us to be happy"..& my personal favorite (with a feminine neckline on the tee) "Champagne is the only wine that leaves a woman more beautiful after drinking." Madame Pompadour

Terroirs (James E. Wilson) said...

This is to me a great idea for a quote:

"I think it is a great error to consider a heavy tax on wines as a tax on luxury. On the contrary, it is a tax on the health of our citizens"
~ Thomas Jefferson

After exhaustive empirical research, I have determined that I am genetically programmed for Pinot Noir.

I teach wine education courses - for which there is an undying thirst!

5,12,4 in that order. Bear in mind that there's not much room for writing on a T-shirt -- in this case, shorter quotes are better.

In my opinion the best is number 15 and I Know a phrase that I like a lot...
"Cristo não consagrou a água, o leite ou a coca-cola, ele consagrou o pão e Vinho, como alimentos do corpo e do espírito" (Fernando Sabino)in Portuguese.
Trasnlating...
"Christ did not consecrate the water, the milk or the coke, he consecrated the bread and wine as food of the body and spirit".
