Wherein Amuse-Biatch Seeks Redemption for Lapse of Taste by Further Quotation of Samuel Johnson


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

"A man who exposes himself when he is intoxicated, has not the art of getting drunk."

"Wine makes a man more pleased with himself. I do not say that it makes him more pleasing to others."

"A cucumber should be well sliced, and dressed with pepper and vinegar, and then thrown out, as good for nothing."
