Health Toasts

"We drink one another's health and spoil our own." -Jerome K. Jerome

As Shakespeare said in The Merry Wives of Windsor, let us "drink down all unkindness.”

Here's health to those I love, and wealth to those who love me.

Here's to your health, and your family's good health, and may you live long and prosper.

To your health. May we drink one together in ten years' time and a few in between.

Here's to your health! You make age curious, time furious, and all of us envious.

Here's to health, peace, and prosperity-may the flower of love never be nipped by the frost of disappointment, nor the shadow of grief fall upon a member of this circle.

Here's to your health. May God bring you luck, and may your journey be smooth and happy.

To your health. May we drink one together in ten years' time and a few in between.

A good wife and health Are a man's best wealth.

Here's to health to my soul and health to my heart;
Where this is going, there's gone many a quart.

Through my teeth and round my gums;
Look out, belly, here it comes.

May the Lord love us but not call us too soon.

To you, and yours, and theirs, and mine, I pledge with you, their health in wine.

Here's a health to thee and thine
From the hearts of me and mine;
And when thee and thine
Come to see me and mine,
May me and mine make thee and thine
As welcome as thee and thine
Have ever made me and mine.

Here's health to all who need it.

Health to our sweethearts, our friends and our wives,
And may fortune smile on them the rest of their lives.

I drink to your health when I'm with you,
I drink to your health when I'm alone,
I drink to your health so often
I'm beginning to worry about my own.

To your very good health. May you live to be as old as your jokes.
