Random quote of the day:

“I don’t see why people make such a to-do about choosing a new cook. There is only one thing that is absolutely essential. I always ask at once, “Do you drink?” and if she says “No!” I bow politely and say that I am very sorry but I fear that she will not suit. All good cooks drink.”

—James S. McNeill Whistler, quoted in Life Was Worth Living by Graham Robertson

Random quote of the day:

 

“I only drink Champagne when I am happy, and when I’m sad.  Sometimes I drink it when I am alone.  When I have company, I consider it obligatory.  I trifle with it when I am not hungry and drink it when I am.  Otherwise I never touch it—unless I’m thirsty.”

—Lily Bollinger, London Daily Mail, October 17, 1961
