A Toast

Emily's last post ended with pure poetry, and it got me thinking about all the different toasts people drink to. I've heard some good ones in my day so every now and again I'll pop in and share one or more with you. Today we have two to offer up, hope you like them. I can take credit for neither of them, but the cool thing about toasts is nobody cares if you steal theirs.

"My grand-grandfather once told me, 'I have a desire to buy a house, but I have not the opportunity. I have the opportunity to buy a she-goat, but I have not the desire.' So let us drink to the correspondence of our desires and our opportunities."
- Traditional Russian Toast

"In Vino Veritas. In Cervesio Felicitas."
- Old Latin Toast
(In wine there is wisdom. In beer there is joy.)


  1. A rich man's home is his castle
    a sailor's home is the sea
    a shot in a glass and a piece of ass
    is home sweet home to me

  2. Here's to you, here's to me
    Friends forever may we be
    And if by chance we disagree...
    ... FUCK YOU, here's to me!
