I saw this quote on my way out of The Dutch last night after having a cocktail with a friend. As a champagne lover, it struck a chord. While some may interpret it as words spoken by a lush, I see it more as a reminder to take time and revel in the moment when you’re happy – preferably with champagne, or any other celebration to mark the time. In my opinion, there is not a more festive beverage that is usually reserved for special occasions, toasting to newlyweds and the new year. The other wonderful thing is that as a beverage, it has inspired some of your favorite stars and literary figures to say some fabulous things. Here are a few of my favorite quotes about the bubbly.
“My only regret in life is that I did not drink more Champagne.” – John Maynard Keynes
“Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right.” – Mark Twain
“Champagne is the only wine that leaves a woman beautiful after drinking it.” –Madame De Pompadour
“Champagne is one of the elegant extras in life.” – Charles Dickens
“Champagne makes you feel like it’s Sunday and better days are around the corner.” –Marlene Dietrich
Now go out and celebrate something!
