Were't the last drop in the well,
As I gasp'd upon the brink
Ere My fainting spirit fell,
'Tis to thee that I would drink.
-- Byron

May friendship, like wine, improve as time
advances, and may we always have old wine,
old friends and young cares.

Fire Logs, by Carl Sandburg
Nancy Hanks dreams by the fire;
Dreams, and the logs sputter,
And the yellow tongues climb.
Red lines lick their way in flickers.
Oh, sputter, logs.
Oh, dream, Nancy.
Time now for a beautiful child.
Time now for a tall man to come.

May you live all the days of your life.
-- Swift

May friendship, like wine, improve as time
advances, and may we always have old wine,
old friends and young cares.

Don't worry about the future,
The present is all thou hast,
The future will soon be present,
And the present will soon be past.

A glass is good, and a lass is good,
And a pipe to smoke in cold weather,
The world is good and people are good,
And we're all good fellows together,
Let schoolmasters puzzle their brand with
grammar and nonsense and learning,
Good liquor, I stoutly maintain,
Gives genius a better discerning.

Here's to those who love us,
And here's to those who don't,
A smile for those who are willing to,
And a tear for those who won't.

I thank you for your welcome which was cordial,
And your cordial, which was welcome.

May those that love us, love us.
And those that don't,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He cannot turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping.

Here's champagne to our real friends,
and real pain to our sham friends.

Your illustrious bustiness makes dinner a must for us.

You are my friends, for you have smiled with me,
My help and hope in fair and stormy weather;
I like you for the joys you've whiled with me,
I love you for the griefs we've wept together.
-- Nixon Waterman

Here's to the tears of friendship.
May they crystallize as they fall
And be worn as jewels by those we love.

May the best of your past be the worst of your future.

Here's to the man who is wisest and best,
Here's to the man who with judgement is blest.
Here's to the man who's as smart as can be --
I mean the man who agrees with me.

Here's to the fellow who smiles
When life rolls along like a song,
And here's to the chap who can smile
When everything goes dead wrong.

A dinner, coffee and cigars,
Of friends, a half a score,
Each favorite vintage in its turn --
What man could wish for more?

Here's health to them that we love
And a health to all those that love us,
And a health to all those that love them that we love,
And to them that love those that love us.
