Thirst Quotes

I drank at every vine. The last was like the first. I came upon no wine So wonderful as thirst.

Edna St. Vincent Millay

It is well to remember that there are five reasons for drinking: the arrival of a friend; ones present or future thirst; the excellence of the wine; or any other reason.

Latin saying

Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.

Jerome K. Jerome

As much as we thirst for approval we dread condemnation.

Hans Selye

If you've never met a student from the University of Chicago, I'll describe him to you. If you give him a glass of water, he says, "This is a glass of water. But is it a glass of water? And if it is a glass of water, why is it a glass of water?" And eventually he dies of thirst.

Shelley Berman

The nearer I approach the end, the clearer I hear around me the immortal symphonies of the worlds which invite me. It is marvelous yet simple. For half a century I have been writing my thoughts in prose, verse, history, drama, romance, tradition, satire, ode and song - I have tried all; but I feel that I have not said a thousandth part of that which is in me. When I go down to the grave I can say like many others, "I have finished my day's work" but I cannot say, "I have finished my life's work"; my day's work will begin the next morning. The tomb is not a blind alley. It is an open thoroughfare. It closes in the twilight to open in the dawn. My work is only beginning; my work is hardly above its foundation. I would gladly see it mounting forever. The thirst for the infinite proves infinity.

Victor Marie Hugo

They speak of my drinking, but never think of my thirst.

Scottish Proverb

Chinese Proverb

It is well to remember that there are five reasons for drinking: the arrival of a friend, one's present or future thirst, the excellence of the wine, or any other reason.

Latin Proverb

No society has been able to abolish human sadness, no political system can deliver us from the pain of living, from our fear of death, our thirst for the absolute. It is the human condition that directs the social condition, not vice versa.

Eugene Ionesco

In your thirst for knowledge, be sure not to drown in all the information.

Anthony J. D'Angelo

Kissing is like drinking salted water: you drink and your thirst increases

Pride costs more than hunger, thirst and cold.

Thomas Jefferson
