Hi,

I am looking for a quote to put on my blog. It should be something related to beauty, getting drunk and being dizzy. Background is I had an experience with a friend who thinks I am drunk all the time since I look dizzy all the time :roll: . Why beauty in the quote?? Just to make the quote more interesting.

Thanks for the help!! I will send you the link to my blog once I complete it.

Thanks again
Phani

That might be a tall order to fill with one quotation.

"Drinking makes such fools of people, and people are such fools to begin with, that it's compounding a felony."
-- Robert Benchley

It is sometimes possible to kill two birds with one stone but killing three birds with one stone is a pretty rare hat trick. Since I like hat tricks then I will attempt to coin an expression or two or three for your consideration. The bettter part of my judgement hints that there is no such animal as a quote that incorporates beauty, dizziness and drunkeness. For quotes on beauty I would suggest skimming John Keats. It is easy to become enamoured with beautiful women to such extents as a to be become intoxicated on beauty. Being IN love can cause one to be dizzy as well.

There was an pop song in the 60's that I am reminded of ;;

Dizzy, I'm so dizzy my head is spinning
like a whirlwind it keeps a spinning.
I'm so dizzy
Dizzy

The word tumbleweed comes to mind.

:D

The paintings–the paintings! O luxury! O love!–who, gazing on those forbidden beauties, shall have eyes for the dainty devices of the golden frames that besprinkled, like stars, the hyacinth and the porphyry walls?
But the Duc's heart is fainting within him. He is not, however, as you suppose, dizzy with magnificence, nor drunk with the ecstatic breath of those innumerable censers. C'est vrai que de toutes ces choses il a pense beaucoup–mais! The Duc De L'Omelette is terror-stricken; for, through the lurid vista which a single uncurtained window is affording, lo! gleams the most ghastly of all fires!
~Edgar Allan Poe, The Duc de l'Omlette (1850)

To aid the memory these four stages are sometimes called dizzy and delightful, drunk and disorderly, dead drunk, and danger of death.

So the world is spinning faster
Are you dizzy when you're stoned
Let the music be your master
Will you heed the master's call
Oh-whoa-oh, Satan an' man

Led Zeppelin — Houses of the Holy

There is about as much beauty in drunkenness as dizziness in sobriety.

(That is about the most sense that I can make of the three words in a single statement. Beauty is a quality that is based on individual or collective perception.)
