Celebration Toasts

Drink and be merry, for our time on earth is short, and death lasts forever

To the good old days - which we are having right now.

As Baba Meher said, "Don't worry, be happy."

After everything that has happened, I can only quote the last words of Czar Alexander I of Russia: "What a beautiful day."

Drink today and drown all sorrow,
You shall perhaps not do't tomorrow.
Best while you have it, use your breath;
There is no drinking after death.
-Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher

In the words of Bill and Ted, "Party on, dudes" and "Be excellent to each other."

Eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart. -Ecclesiastes 9:7
