Champagne wisdom, Part Un

We’re approaching everybody’s favorite time for Champagne (which for me is anytime). So here are some famous folks’ thoughts on this bubbly delight:

• “My only regret in life is that I did not drink more Champagne.” – John Maynard Keynes

• “In victory you deserve Champagne, in defeat you need it.” – Napoleon Bonaparte

• “Champagne, the only true feminine and becoming of viands.” – Lord Byron

• “Champagne for my real friends, real pain for my sham friends.” – Francis Bacon (left)

• “A man must not dream of dying until he has drunk five thousand bottles of Champagne and smoked one hundred thousand cigars.” – Otto von Bismarck

• “Three be the things I shall never attain: envy, content, and sufficient Champagne.” – Dorothy Parker
