Quote of the Week: This Wine is too Good for Toast-Drinking

"I say. You might open it," Brett suggested.

"Yes, my dear, now I'll open it."

It was amazing champagne.

"I say that is wine," Brett held up her glass. "We ought to toast something. 'Here's to royalty.'"

"This wine is too good for toast-drinking, my dear. You don't want to mix emotions up in a wine like that. You lose the taste."

Brett's glass was empty.

—Ernest Hemingway,
