Love these toasts!

A friend forwarded this to me and I thought I would share... love these

Here's to lying, cheating and stealing
Lie to lie to save a friend
Cheat to cheat to cheat death
Steal to steal the heart of someone you love.

For better or for worse, but never for granted.

Three be the things I shall never attain: Envy, Content, and Sufficient Champagne.
--Dorothy Parker

May you live as long as you want
And may you never want as long as you live.

May all your joys be pure joys,
And all your pain champagne.

I think that God in creating man somewhat overestimated his ability.
--Oscar Wilde

Here's to steak when you're hungry,
Whisky when you're dry,
All the girls (boys) you ever want,
And heaven when you die.
Here's to those that love us,
And here's to those that don't,
A smile for those who are willing to,
And a tear for those who won't.

Amor Vincent Omnia (Love Conquers All).

"Love doesn't make the world go ‘round,
but it sure makes the ride worthwhile."
--Mae West

Giving the perfect toast turns an ordinary occasion into an extraordinary celebration. But before you grab your pen and start crafting a twenty-minute speech, heed our advice and make it short, sweet, and snappy.

Northing ruins a party faster than a terrible toast-don't try and be the funny guy or write up a three-page acceptance-letter-cum-speech.

Make a fabulous statement by using a tried-and-true toast, a famous quote or poem, or even a line from a movie that sums up the moment.

If you need to say something incredibly special, a great starting point is finding a line or proverb that almost fits and making it your own by adding a memory or a personal thought.

But whatever you say, just get to the point, quickly! And remember, when you end the toast, raise your glass and look everyone in the eye. Clink, clink!

Here are some memorable toasts, quotes, and movie lines:

"Here's looking at you, kid."
--Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca

"Carpe diem, seize the day, boys, make your lives extradordinary."
--Dead Poet's Society

"When choosing between two evils, I always like to take the one I never tried before."
--Mae West

"For better or worse, but never for granted."
--Arlene Dahl

"Three be the things I shall never attain, /Envy content and sufficient champagne."
--Dorothy Parker

"The best and the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor even touched, but just felt in the heart."
--Helen Keller

"Love doesn't make the world go round, but it sure makes the ride worthwhile."
--Franklin P. Jones

"Here's to lying, cheating, and stealing. Lie to a friend, cheat to cheat death, steal to steal the heart of someone you love."
--Irish Blessing

"May you live as long as you want, and may you never want as long as you live."
--Irish Blessing
