Viniferous quips

I was a collector in general before I became a wine collector. Among the items I cull are quotes. Here are some of my favorite wine drolleries:

“Wine improves with age. The older I get, the better I like it.  ““ Unknown

“I shall drink no wine before it is time! OK, it is time.” — Groucho Marx

“Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink I feel shame. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this wine, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, ‘It is better that I drink this wine and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.’ ” ““ Author/comedian Jack Handy

“God in his goodness sent the grapes/To cheer both great and small./Little fools will drink too much/And great fools none at all.  — Unknown

“What is better than to sit at the end of the day and drink wine with friends, or substitutes for friends? — James Joyce
