Rye Whiskey Barrels

Famous quotes containing the words rye, whiskey and/or barrels:

    Poems stirred
    into paper coffee-cups, eaten
    with petals on rye in the
    sun—the cold shadows in back,
    and the traffic grinding the
    borders of spring ...
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    Besides, you start drinking whiskey gambling, it gives you an excuse for losing. That’s something you don’t need, an excuse for losing.
    Sydney Carroll, U.S. screenwriter, and Robert Rossen. Bert Gordon (George C. Scott)

    The idea that information can be stored in a changing world without an overwhelming depreciation of its value is false. It is scarcely less false than the more plausible claim that after a war we may take our existing weapons, fill their barrels with cylinder oil, and coat their outsides with sprayed rubber film, and let them statically await the next emergency.
    Norbert Wiener (1894–1964)
