Famous quotes containing the word drinks:

    An alcoholic has been lightly defined as a man who drinks more than his own doctor.
    Alvan L. Barach (1895–1977)

    Who keeps the tavern and serves up the drinks? The peasant. Who squanders and drinks up money belonging to the peasant commune, the school, the church? The peasant. Who would steal from his neighbor, commit arson, and falsely denounce another for a bottle of vodka? The peasant.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    This fellow mixes his metaphors the way a toper does his drinks and, I daresay, gets just as tipsy on them.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)
