To celebrate the start of Party Season, we’ve gathered some quotations from famous writers about eating, drinking, and being merry. John Steinbeck said "It is generally understood that a party hardly ever goes the way it is planned or intended” but whatever happens, we hope you have a good time.
What Not To Wear
“It is easy to decide on what is wrong to wear to a party, such as deep-sea diving equipment or a pair of large pillows, but deciding what is right is much trickier.”
― Lemony Snicket, The Slippery Slope
“Nobody’s ever asked me to a party before, as a friend. Is that why you dyed your eyebrow, for the party? Should I do mine too?”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Food for Thought
“After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relations.”
― Oscar Wilde, A Woman of No Importance
“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”
― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien
“Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.”
― Mark Twain
“There is nothing more luxurious than eating while you read—unless it be reading while you eat. Amabel did both: they are not the same thing, as you will see if you think the matter over.”
― E. Nesbit, The Magic World
“We must have a pie. Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.”
― David Mamet, Boston Marriage
“There’s a friendly tie of some sort between music and eating.”
― Thomas Hardy, Under the Greenwood Tree
Nectar of the Gods
“Here’s to alcohol, the rose colored glasses of life.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Beautiful and Damned
“For art to exist, for any sort of aesthetic activity or perception to exist, a certain physiological precondition is indispensable: intoxication.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
“In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is Freedom, in water there is bacteria.”
― Benjamin Franklin
“We were not a hugging people. In terms of emotional comfort it was our belief that no amount of physical contact could match the healing powers of a well made cocktail.”
― David Sedaris, Naked
“Alcohol, taken in sufficient quantities, may produce all the effects of drunkenness.”
― Oscar Wilde
Dance Like There’s Nobody Watching
“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”
“Almost nobody dances sober, unless they happen to be insane.”
― H.P. Lovecraft
“Life is short and there will always be dirty dishes, so let’s dance.”
― James Howe, Totally Joe
The Morning After
“His head was pounding and his vision skewed in some way and he was vaguely amazed at being alive and not sure that it was worth it.”
― Cormac McCarthy
I have the feeling that drinking is a form of suicide where you’re allowed to return to life and begin all over the next day. It’s like killing yourself, and then you’re reborn. I guess I’ve lived about ten or fifteen thousand lives now.”
― Charles Bukowski
“He shimmered out, and I sat up in bed with that rather unpleasant feeling you get sometimes that you’re going to die in about five minutes.”
― P.G. Wodehouse
