Chicken Soup for the Drinker’s Soul

Chicken Soup for the Drinker's Soul

Okay, so we’re a day late, but oh well – this is worth sharing. Yesterday, November 12th, was Chicken Soup for the Soul Day.  I’m super serious. It seems like every day is devoted to something, and yesterday was solely dedicated to the inspirational book series Chicken Soup for the Soul.

I’m sure most, if not all of you have been given, gave, or read one of these books at some point in your lives. They’re actually quite nice. But unfortunately, there’s no Chicken Soup for the Beer Geek’s Soul, or the Wine Lover’s Soul, or the Cocktail Connoisseur’s Soul. So, today, I bring you a series of 10 drinking-related quotes and quips to warm your soul. Enjoy! 

  1. “I feel sorry for people who don’t drink. When they wake up in the morning, that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day. ”  – Frank Sinatra

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

  3. “Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.”  – Ernest Hemingway
    Ernest Hemmingway
  4. “Ho! Ho! Ho! To the bottle I go
    To heal my heart and drown my woe
    Rain may fall, and wind may blow
    And many miles be still to go
    But under a tall tree will I lie
    And let the clouds go sailing by”

    ― J.R.R. Tolkien

  7. “Everybody’s got to believe in something. I believe I’ll have another beer.” –  W.C. Fields

  8. “In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is Freedom, in water there is bacteria.” – Benjamin Franklin

  9. “Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.” – Dave Barry

  10. “The problem with the designated driver program, it’s not a desirable job, but if you ever get sucked into doing it, have fun with it. At the end of the night, drop them off at the wrong house.” –  Jeff Foxworthy
