Famous quotes containing the words fire and/or whiskey:
“I sometimes left a good fire when I went to take a walk in a winter afternoon; and when I returned, three or four hours afterward, it would be still alive and glowing. My house was not empty though I was gone. It was as if I had left a cheerful housekeeper behind. It was I and Fire that lived there; and commonly my housekeeper proved trustworthy.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Besides, you start drinking whiskey gambling, it gives you an excuse for losing. Thats something you dont need, an excuse for losing.”
