25 Whiskey Quotes from the Famous Drinkers Who Loved It Best

created at: 03/27/2014

Most have heard, and can quote, the famous line attributed (probably inappropriately) to Benjamin Franklin, “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” And plenty of us have likely created our adages to remind ourselves of experiences with tequila, wine, or some other overindulgence. But, throughout the last few hundred years, many of our greatest writers, thinkers, and humorists have dedicated their lines to that most aged and crafted of spirits: whiskey.   First We feast has gathered twenty-five homages (and eulogies?) to the spirit, and assembled them in this worthwhile collection. Some standouts:

  • “Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.” – Mark Twain
  • “Always carry a flagon of whiskey in case of snakebite and furthermore always carry a small snake.” – W.C. Fields
  • “There is no bad whiskey. There are only some whiskeys that aren’t as good as others.” – Raymond Chandler
