Lamerica Wine quotes by Edith Wharton
#1. They had paused before the table on which the bride's jewel were displayed, and Lily's heart gave an envious throb as she caught the refraction of light from their surfaces – the milky gleam of perfectly matched pearls, the flash of rubies relieved against contrasting velvet, the intense blue rays of sapphires kindled into light by surrounding diamonds: all these precious tints enhanced and deepened by the varied art of their setting. The glow of the stones warmed Lily's veins like wine. More completely than any other expression of wealth they symbolized the life she longed to lead, the life of fastidious aloofness and refinement in which every detail should have the finish of a jewel, and the whole form a harmonious setting to her own jewel-like rareness. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Lamerica Wine quotes by Joe Bob Briggs
#2. The Italians always made good wine, but you had the impression they were friendly guys in straw hats running family vineyards with slaves or something so that the vino was never more than ten bucks a bottle. #Quote by Joe Bob Briggs
Lamerica Wine quotes by Josiah Bancroft
#3. Senlin loved nothing more in the world than a warm hearth to set his feet upon and a good book to pour his whole mind into. While an evening storm rattled the shutters and a glass of port wine warmed in his hand, Senlin would read into the wee hours of the night. He especially delighted in the old tales, the epics in which heroes set out on some impossible and noble errand, confronting the dangers in their path with fatalistic bravery. Men often died along the way, killed in brutal and unnatural ways; they were gored by war machines, trampled by steeds, and dismembered by their heartless enemies. Their deaths were boastful and lyrical and always, always more romantic than real. Death was not an end. It was an ellipsis. There was no romance in the scene before him. There were no ellipses here. The bodies lay upon the ground like broken exclamation points. #Quote by Josiah Bancroft
Lamerica Wine quotes by Kristen Callihan
#4. She ought to call him Benjamin, but it was too intimate, too soft.
"My lord?" she ventured, only half serious.
"Good, God, no."
She bit back a smile. "Husband?" she took a sip of wine.
He grunted. "Are we to become Quakers? #Quote by Kristen Callihan
Lamerica Wine quotes by Jennifer Rosen
#5. If Dracula would be happy there, so will your wine. #Quote by Jennifer Rosen
Lamerica Wine quotes by Alton Brown
#6. Wine is like women. It tempts you; it comforts you; it confuses you and can even turn on you when you least expect it. It can be your friend one day and your enemy the next. #Quote by Alton Brown
Lamerica Wine quotes by Nora Roberts
#7. Thinking of Macintosh's reaction to Veronica, Grant felt a wave of empathy. "Poor kid's going to be mooning like a puppy for a month. Did you have to smile at him?"
"Really,Grant.He can't be more than fifteen."
"Old enough to break out in a sweat," he commented.
"Hormones," she murmured as she found Fairfield's sparse selection of wine. "They just need time to balance."
Grant's gaze drifted down and focused as she bent over. "It should only take thirty or forty years," he muttered. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Lamerica Wine quotes by John Green
#8. That night, the booze felt great, as the warmth of the wine in my stomach spread through my body. I didn't like feeling stupid or out of control, but I liked the way it made everything (laughing, crying, peeing in front of your friends) easier. #Quote by John Green
Lamerica Wine quotes by William Shakespeare
#9. O thou invisible spirit of wine, if thou hast no name to be known by, let us call thee devil. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Lamerica Wine quotes by Horace
#10. O drink is mighty! secrets it unlocks, Turns hope to fact, sets cowards on to box, Takes burdens from the careworn, finds out parts In stupid folks, and teaches unknown arts. What tongue hangs fire when quickened by the bowl? What wretch so poor but wine expands his soul? #Quote by Horace
Lamerica Wine quotes by Martial
#11. Wine and women bring misery. #Quote by Martial
Lamerica Wine quotes by Yehuda Amichai
#12. In the Middle of This Century"

In the middle of this century we turned to each other
With half faces and full eyes
like an ancient Egyptian picture
And for a short while.

I stroked your hair
In the opposite direction to your journey,
We called to each other,
Like calling out the names of towns
Where nobody stops
Along the route.

Lovely is the world rising early to evil,
Lovely is the world falling asleep to sin and pity,
In the mingling of ourselves, you and I,
Lovely is the world.

The earth drinks men and their loves
Like wine,
To forget.
It can't.
And like the contours of the Judean hills,
We shall never find peace.

In the middle of this century we turned to each other,
I saw your body, throwing shade, waiting for me,
The leather straps for a long journey
Already tightening across my chest.
I spoke in praise of your mortal hips,
You spoke in praise of my passing face,
I stroked your hair in the direction of your journey,
I touched your flesh, prophet of your end,
I touched your hand which has never slept,
I touched your mouth which may yet sing.

Dust from the desert covered the table
At which we did not eat
But with my finger I wrote on it
The letters of your name. #Quote by Yehuda Amichai
Lamerica Wine quotes by Zora Neale Hurston
#13. All gods who receive homage are cruel. All gods dispense suffering without reason. Otherwise they would not be worshipped. Through indiscriminate suffering men know fear and fear is the most divine emotion. It is the stones for altars and the beginning of wisdom. Half gods are worshipped in wine and flowers. Real gods require blood. #Quote by Zora Neale Hurston
Lamerica Wine quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#14. Go to the devil with your Latin. Let us drink, my dear d'Artagnan, MORBLEU! Let us drink while the wine is fresh! Let #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Lamerica Wine quotes by Edward Steinberg
#15. Great wine works wonders and is itself one #Quote by Edward Steinberg
Lamerica Wine quotes by William T. Vollmann
#16. But how could he explain anything to them, when they understood good but not goodness, strong but not strength, black but not blackness?
Give us bread! the Savages cried. Heal us!
They were frightened by the consecrated wine, believing that the Black-Gowns drank human blood.
This is the blood of JESUS, said Pere Masse.
Was that a man? they asked.
He was the SON OF GOD, but He became a man to die for us. In memory of his sacrifice, we drink His blood.
At this they drew back and whispered in their language, with many terrified glances. #Quote by William T. Vollmann
Lamerica Wine quotes by Freya Stark
#17. Good days are to be gathered like grapes, to be trodden and bottled into wine and kept for age to sip at ease beside the fire. If the traveler has vintaged well, he need trouble to wander no longer; the ruby moments glow in his glass at will. #Quote by Freya Stark
Lamerica Wine quotes by Jarod Kintz
#18. I have bread, water, and love - what more can a man ask for? How about pasta, wine, and sex. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Lamerica Wine quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#19. Commodore Koudelka had just taken a mouthful of wine to chase his last bite of salmon. The atomized spray arced nearly to Delia, seated across from her father. A lungful of wine in a man that age was an alarming event in any case; Olivia patted his back in hesitant worry, as he buried his reddening face in his napkin and gasped. Drou half-pushed her chair back, as she hesitated between going up around the table to assist her husband or, possibly, down the table to strangle Mark. #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Lamerica Wine quotes by Allegra Goodman
#20. The wines were great, and better by the minute, even as the drinkers softened. Just as wines opened at the table, so the friends' thirst changed. Their tongues were not so keen, but curled, delighted, as the wines deepened. Nick's Latour was a classic Bordeaux, perfumed with black currant and cedar, perfectly balanced, never overpowering, too genteel to call attention to itself, but too splendid to ignore. Raj's Petrus, like Raj himself, more flamboyant, flashier, riper, ravishing the tongue. And then the Californian, which was in some ways richest, and in others most ethereal. George was sure the scent was eucalyptus in this Heitz, the flavor creamy with just a touch of mint, so that he could imagine the groves of silvery trees. The Heitz was smooth and silky, meltingly soft, perhaps best suited to George's tournedos, seared outside, succulent and pink within, juices running, mixing with the young potatoes and tangy green beans crisp enough to snap. #Quote by Allegra Goodman
Lamerica Wine quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#21. I had hooked up my iPod to the speakers. The air was filled with the raw, sexy purr of Etta James. "The thing that's great about the blues," I told Luke, pausing to sip from my glass of wine, "is that it's about feeling, loving, wanting without the brakes on. No one's brave enough to live that way. Except maybe musicians. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Lamerica Wine quotes by Dorothea Benton Frank
#22. I love to cook, my husband and I collect wine, and in my head, I am always on Sullivan's Island, walking the beach listening to the song of the ocean. #Quote by Dorothea Benton Frank
Lamerica Wine quotes by Jamie Goode
#23. Are two people drinking from the same bottle of wine having a common experience? #Quote by Jamie Goode
Lamerica Wine quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#24. Faith," she says, "is a catch-and-release sport. And standing at the altar receiving the bread and wine is the release part. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Lamerica Wine quotes by Dezso Kosztolanyi
#25. He knew everything. He knew at least a thousand Hungarian folk songs, all the words and tunes, he could handle Gypsies, give them instructions and keep them in order, check their familiarity with the flicker of an eyelid, then win their affection with a lordly, condescending, and yet fraternal-playful sidelong glance, he could call 'acsi' perfectly, shout at the first violin when he didn't strike up Csendesen, csak csendesen quietly enough and the cimbalonist when the padded sticks didn't make the steel strings thunder and rumble sufficiently in Hullamzo Balaton, he could kiss the viola player's pock-marked face, give the double bass a kick, break glasses and mirrors, drink wine, beer and marc brandy for three days on end out of tumblers, smack his lips at the site of cabbage soup and cold pork stew, take ages inspecting his cards (with relish, one eye closed), dance a quick csardas for a whole half-hour, urging and driving himself on to stamp and shout and toss his partner high in the air and catch her, light as a feather, with one arm: so, as I said, he could do everything that raises Man from his animal condition and makes him truly Man. #Quote by Dezso Kosztolanyi
Lamerica Wine quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#26. We now have a strong desire for living combined with a strange carelessness about dying. We desire life like water and yet are ready to drink death like wine. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Lamerica Wine quotes by Mark Carwardine
#27. China is responsible for a lot of the major conservation issues we're facing. It's the main market for rhino horn. Tigers are being killed for tiger bone wine. They're driving the tropical timber trade and illegal logging in Indonesia, and the trade in tropical reef fish. #Quote by Mark Carwardine
Lamerica Wine quotes by Elin Hilderbrand
#28. But for now, the aioli. Garlic, egg yolks, a wee bit of Dijon mustard. In her Cuisinart she whipped these up to a brilliant, pungent yellow; then she added olive oil in a steady stream. Here was the magic of cooking- an emulsion formed, a rich, garlicky mayonnaise. Salt, pepper, the juice of half a lemon. Marguerite scooped the aioli into a bowl and covered it with plastic.
She barely made it through the marinade for the beef. Her forehead was burning; she felt hot and achy, dried up. She whisked together olive oil, red wine vinegar, sugar, horseradish, Dijon, salt, and pepper and poured it over the tenderloin in a shallow dish. #Quote by Elin Hilderbrand
Lamerica Wine quotes by Walter Raleigh
#29. Except thou desire to hasten thine end, take this for a general rule, that thou never add any artificial heat to thy body by wine or spice. #Quote by Walter Raleigh
Lamerica Wine quotes by Jarod Kintz
#30. I have liquid lips, and my kisses are smooth as wine. Why pour you a glass when you can drink from the bottle? #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Lamerica Wine quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#31. Mr Mowett,' called Stephen in the pause while the table was clearing to make room for the pudding, and pudding-wine - in this case Frontignan and Canary - was handing about, 'you were telling me about your publishers.'
'Yes, sir: I was about to say that they were the most hellish procrastinators - '
'Oh how dreadful,' cried Fanny. 'Do they go to - to special houses, or do they ... '
'He means they delay,' said Babbington.
'Oh. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Lamerica Wine quotes by Anna Akhmatova
#32. We will not drink from the same cup -
Neither water nor sweet wine is ours,
We will not kiss as the sun goes up
Or gaze at the night, on the sill, for hours.
I breathe by the moon, you – by the sun #Quote by Anna Akhmatova
Lamerica Wine quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#33. Bring me wine, but wine which never grew
In the belly of the grape #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Lamerica Wine quotes by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles
#34. ... the very least one requires for civilisation to survive is an adequate supply of sound wines. #Quote by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles
Lamerica Wine quotes by Paula Deen
#35. You know, not everybody can afford to pay $58 for prime rib or $650 for a bottle of wine. My friends and I cook for regular families who worry about feeding their kids and paying the bills. #Quote by Paula Deen
Lamerica Wine quotes by Hafez
#36. Oh Cup-bearer, set my glass afire with the light of wine! #Quote by Hafez
Lamerica Wine quotes by Neil Gaiman
#37. Laura made a great chili. She used lean meat, dark kidney beans, carrots cut small, a bottle or so of dark beer, and freshly sliced hot peppers. She would let the chili cook for a while, then add red wine, lemon juice and a pitch of fresh dill, and, finally, measure out and add her chili powders. On more than one occasion Shadow had tried to get her to show him how she made it: he would watch everything she did, from slicing the onions and dropping them into the olive oil at the bottom of the pot. He had even written down the recipe, ingredient by ingredient, and he had once made Laura's chili for himself on a weekend when she had been out of town. It had tasted okay-it was certainly edible, but it had not been Laura's chili. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Lamerica Wine quotes by Alain De Botton
#38. The challenge lies in knowing how to bring this sort of day to a close. His mind has been wound to a pitch of concentration by the interactions of the office. Now there are only silence and the flashing of the unset clock on the microwave. He feels as if he had been playing a computer game which remorselessly tested his reflexes, only to have its plug suddenly pulled from the wall. He is impatient and restless, but simultaneously exhausted and fragile. He is in no state to engage with anything significant. It is of course impossible to read, for a sincere book would demand not only time, but also a clear emotional lawn around the text in which associations and anxieties could emerge and be disentangled. He will perhaps only ever do one thing well in his life.
For this particular combination of tiredness and nervous energy, the sole workable solution is wine. Office civilisation could not be feasible without the hard take-offs and landings effected by coffee and alcohol. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Lamerica Wine quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#39. He whose mouth is out of taste says the wine is flat. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Lamerica Wine quotes by Cynthia Bourgeault
#40. Jesus never asked anyone to form a church, ordain priests, develop elaborate rituals and institutional cultures, and splinter into denominations. His two great requests were that we "love one another as I have loved you" and that we share bread and wine together as an open channel of that interabiding love. #Quote by Cynthia Bourgeault
Lamerica Wine quotes by Thomas Merton
#41. New eyes awaken.
I send Love's name into the world with wings
And songs grow up around me like a jungle.
Choirs of all creatures sing the tunes
Your Spirit played in Eden.
Zebras and antelopes and birds of paradise
Shine on the face of the abyss
And I am drunk with the great wilderness
Of the sixth day in Genesis.

But sound is never half so fair
As when that music turns to air
And the universe dies of excellence.

Sun, moon and stars
Fall from their heavenly towers.
Joys walk no longer down the blue world's shore.

Though fires loiter, lights still fly on the air of the gulf,
All fear another wind, another thunder:
Then one more voice
Snuffs all their flares in one gust.

And I go forth with no more wine and no more stars
And no more buds and no more Eden
And no more animals and no more sea:

While God sings by himself in acres of night
And walls fall down, that guarded Paradise. #Quote by Thomas Merton
