Lily Bollinger was asked “When do you drink champagne?”, and replied:
I only drink champagne when I’m happy, and when I’m sad.
Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone.
When I have company, I consider it obligatory.
I trifle with it if I am not hungry and drink it when I am.
Otherwise I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty.
My only regret is that I did not drink more Champagne.
– Lord Maynard Keynes, on his deathbed
