Quote on a Sungday


The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one.

— George Bernard Shaw

Dropkick Murphys – Irish Drinking Song

I was actually looking for quotes on drunkenness, but seeing as how I’ve been quite invested in Richard Dawkins’ “The God Delusion”, I found it strangely fitting.

I, however, have discovered that happiness is not a side-effect of drinking in my case. I managed to drink two glasses of red wine on a friend’s goodbye party on Saturday (which is more than I’ve drunk this whole past year) and promptly almost ruined said party by starting to cry. Yeah… no more red wine for me, that’s for sure! And although the guys encouraged me to keep up my drinking pace, I ended up belly dancing with my friend instead – which I believe they liked even better.
