Howard Schultz
“For more than three decades, coffee has captured my imagination because it is a beverage about individuals as well as community. A Rwandan farmer. Eighty roast masters at six Starbucks plants on two continents. Thousands of baristas in 54 countries. Like a symphony, coffee's power rests in the hands of a few individuals who orchestrate its appeal. So much can go wrong during the journey from soil to cup that when everything goes right, it is nothing short of brilliant! After all, coffee doesn't lie. It can't. Every sip is proof of the artistry -- technical as well as human -- that went into its creation.”
Howard Schultz, Onward: How Starbucks Fought for Its Life without Losing Its Soul

Iain Banks
“I'm too drunk to recall much of what I've said. Which, come to think of it, is probably just as well, judging by the way people who are normally quite sensible dissolve into gibbering, rude, opinionated and bombastic idiots once the alcohol molecules in their bloom-stream outnumber the neutrons, or whatever. Luckily, one only notices this if one stays sober oneself, so the solution is as pleasant (at the time, at least) as it is obvious.”
Iain Banks, The Wasp Factory

Bill Callahan
“A drink centers me but I usually make myself wait until at least 9:00 PM for that. Or 8:00 PM. Whichever comes first.”

Thrity Umrigar
“Liquor is the kiss of the angels as well as the curse of the devil. It can conceal but also can reveal”
Thrity Umrigar, The Space Between Us

“H. L Mencken's Dictionary of the American Language supplies a long list of slang terms for being drunk, but the Irish are no slouches, either. They're spannered, rat-arsed, cabbaged, and hammered; ruined, legless, scorched, and blottoed; or simply trolleyed or sloshed. In Kerry, you're said to be flamin'; in Waterford, you're in the horrors; and in Cavan, you've gone baloobas, a tough one to wrap your tongue around if you ARE baloobas. In Donegal, you're steamin', while the afflicted in Limerick are out of their tree.”
Bill Barich, A Pint of Plain

Santosh Kalwar
“I beg your pardon; I am drunk without a drink. English wine & words are vulnerable to every man.”
Santosh Kalwar

José N. Harris
“Ive created a new drink! I'm calling it the Piñata Colada! Its sweet and tasty, but when you wake up the next morning your head feels like its been hitten with a stick.”
José N. Harris

Ron Currie Jr.
“Partying means drinking. It also means playing records by Lou Reed and Chicago, which I thought was a city but is also a band it turns out.”
Ron Currie Jr., Everything Matters!

Nelson Algren
“The devil lives in a double-shot", Roman explains himself obscurely. "I got a great worm inside. Gnaws and gnaws. Every day I drown him and every day he gnaws. Help me drown the worm, fellas.”
Nelson Algren, The Neon Wilderness

Arthur C. Clarke
“There were, however, a few exceptions.
One was Norma Dodsworth, the poet, who had not unpleasantly drunk but had been sensible enough to pass out before any violent action proved necessary. He had been deposited, not very gently, on the lawn, where it was hoped that a hyena would give him a rude awakening. For all practical purposes he could, therefore, be regarded as absent.”
Arthur C. Clarke, Childhood's End

James A. Murphy
“Life is this simple ~ birth, eat, drink, play, explore, and relate to family and friends; be happy and enjoy life…!”
James A. Murphy, The Waves of Life Quotes and Daily Meditations

Ernest Hemingway
“How would that premise stand up if he examined it? That was probably why the Communists were always cracking down on Bohemiansism. When you were drunk or when you committed adultery you recognised your own personal fallability of that so mutable substitute for the apostles' creed, the party line. Down with Bohemianism, the sin of Majakowski.”
Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls

“Claret is the liquor for boys; port for men; but he who aspires to be a hero must drink brandy.”
Samuel Jackson

Tod Goldberg
“Sam took another sip of the pruno. It went down smoother this time, possibly because he no longer had feeling in his extremities.”
Tod Goldberg, Burn Notice: The Reformed

“Colter searched for original Mexican tiles to use as patterns for copies, and during the search, a barrel of old tile letters was found in a cellar corner.

Above the bar was "A vuestra salud" [to your health], and in another room, "Not with whom you were born, but with whom you pasture.”
Virginia L. Grattan, Mary Colter: Builder upon the Red Earth
