Famous and funny alcohol quotes

Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde was known to enjoy a drink, it may have been what he was referring to when he said: “Everything in moderation, including moderation.” The Irish writer and poet also famously said that “Work is the curse of the drinking classes.” As we’ve said previously in db Wilde also talked about Champagne during his libel trial against the Marquess of Queensberry.

And one last quote from Wilde, which perhaps sums up his attitude towards drinking: “There can be nothing more frequent than an occasional drink.”
