A Quote by Nikos Kazantzakis on happiness, heart, simplicity, and wine

How simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. . . . All that is required to feel that here and now is happiness is a simple, frugal heart.

A Quote by Maxwell Anderson on certainty, character, diet, faith, justice, leadership, life, mind, motherhood, mystery, secrets, and wine

Rudolph (the leading character): If you's go stop three tradesmen on the street, and ask the three what it is they live by, they'll reply at once, bread, meat and drink, and they'll be certain of it; victuals and drink, like the rhyme in Mother Goose, makes up their diet; nothing will be said of faith in things unseen, or following the gleam, just bread and meat and a can of wine to wash it down. But if you know them well, behind the fish-eyes and the bellies, if you know them better than they do, each one burns candles at some alter of his mind in secret; in secret often, from himself, each is a priest to some dim mystery by which he lives. Strip him of that, and bread and meat and wine won't nourish him . . . without his . . . hidden faith, he dies and goes to dust.

A Quote by Marty Stuart on day, familiarity, future, heart, losing, mind, past, wine, and world

A Hundred Years From Now When you left I nearly lost my mind And I tried to drown my sorrows every night in warm red wine My old heart broke to pieces but I'll get by somehow 'Cause I won't care, Lord a hundred years from now From the top of this old world to the bottom of the glass I've thrown away my future by drowning out the past When you walked out the door, girl, you broke every vow But I won't care, a hundred years from now Tonight I'm still hurtin' in an old familiar way Oh and I've got lots of reasons why I come here every day Lord I'm tired, unloved and lonesome, that's how ol' Travis feels right now But I won't care, a hundred years from now From the top of this old world to the bottom of the glass I've thrown away my future by drowning out the past When you walked out the door, girl, you broke every vow But I won't care, a hundred years from now Lord I won't care, a hundred years from now

A Quote by Mao Tse-tung on dance, death, defeat, earth, good, heaven, loneliness, losing, soul, tears, wine, and wives

The Gods on the death of his wife Yang Kai-hui I lost my proud poplar and you your willow As poplar and willow they soar straight up into the ninth heaven and ask the prisoner of the moon, Wu Kang' what is there. He offers them wine from the cassia tree. The lonely lady on the moon, Chang 0, spreads her vast sleeves and dances for these good souls in the unending sky. Down on earth a sudden report of the tiger's defeat. Tears fly down from a great upturned bowl of rain. May 11, 1957
