First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you - F. Scott Fitzgerald
20 F. Scott Fitzgerald Quotes on Life and Matters of the Heart
Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right. Here's to alcohol, the rose colored glasses of life. First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you. The early twenties when we drank wood alcohol and every day in every way grew better and better, and there was a first abortive shortening of the skirts, and girls all looked alike in sweater dresses, and people you didn't want to know said "Yes, we have no bananas," and it seemed only a question of a few years before the older people would step aside and let the world be run by those who saw things as they were--and it all seems rosy and romantic to us who were young then, because we will never feel quite so intensely about our surroundings any more. Every day we present the best quotes! Improve yourself, find your inspiration, share with friends.
