This week is dedicated to one of my favorite English writers....Charles Dickens. (1812-1870)
- Champagne is one of the elegant extras in life.
-Fan the flame of hilarity with the wing of friendship, and pass the rosy wine.
The Old Curiosity Shop (1841)
-I cannot, with such perception as I have of what is reasonable, go along with those excellent persons in confounding the use of anything with its abuse, or in denying any man the cheerful enjoyment of a glass of wine, or beer or spirits and water, because his neighbor is prone to make a beast of himself by irrational excess in those things.
