N. F. Simpson quotes

  • Oh, 'tis jesting, dancing, drinking Spins the heavy world around.

  • Why, if 'tis dancing you would be, There's brisker pipes than poetry. Say, for what were hop-yards meant, Or why was Burton built on Trent? Oh many a peer of England brews Livelier liquor than the Muse, And malt does more than Milton can To justify God's ways to man. Ale, man, ale's the stuff to drink For fellows whom it hurts to think: Look into the pewter pot To see the world as the world's not.

It is hard, it lasts all day, the lighting is generally fluorescent, and, apparently, drinking at your desk is frowned upon. If you ever needed to ruin someone's fun, I mean really poop a party, just move things to the workplace. Fun terminated.

  • Tonight I'm the designated drinker.

  • The best audience is one that is intelligent, well-educated, and a little drunk.

  • It is best to rise from life as from a banquet, neither thirsty nor drunken.
