Words of Vinous Wisdom… or Not

    This observation is credited to the Bishop of Seville, circa
the 7th century:


     “I have enjoyed
great health at a great age because everyday since I can remember, I have
consumed a bottle of wine, except when I have not felt well. Then I have
consumed two bottles.”

     Observed Clifton
Fadiman, host of the radio program, “Information Please,” which concluded a
14-year run in 1952:


     “If food is the
body of good living, wine is its soul.”

demonstrating knowledge of things other than war:


     “Clearly, the
pleasures wines afford are transitory, but so are those of the ballet or of a
musical performance. Wine is inspiring and adds greatly to the joy of living.”

     Former New York
Mayor Fiorello La Guardia, in a rather philosophic moment:


     “I am certain
that the good Lord never intended grapes to be made into grape jelly.”
