Sparkling words

Champagne inspires us all, or at least it should. It certainly has moved some great writers to wax semi-poetically about it:

“If the aunt of the vicar has never touched liquor, watch out when she finds the Champagne.” — Rudyard Kipling

“I like Champagne, because it always tastes as though my foot’s asleep.” — Art Buchwald

“What’s your hosts’ purpose in having a party? Surely not for you to enjoy yourself; if that were their sole purpose, they’d have simply sent Champagne and women over to your place by taxi.” — P.J. O’Rourke

“I’m only a beer teetotaler, not a Champagne teetotaler. I don’t like beer.” — George Bernard Shaw

“Why do I drink Champagne for breakfast?  Doesn’t everyone?” — Sir Nöel Coward
