"Thirst knows no season."
James Hamlyn, of the Buckleboo Football Club, South Australia,
after someone suggested during a committee meeting that fewer
kegs should be ordered for an upcoming show because it was winter.
"The Christian religion, then, is not an affair of preaching, or prating, or ranting, but of taking care of the bodies as well as the souls of people; not an affair of belief and of faith and of professions, but an affair of doing good, and especially to those who are in want; not an affair of fire and brimstone, but an affair of bacon and bread, beer and a bed."
William Cobbett, Rural Rides (1830)
