“I don’t see why people…

“I don’t see why people make such a to-do about choosing a new cook. There is only one thing that is absolutely essential. I always ask at once, ‘Do you drink?”, and if she says ‘No!’ I bow politely and say that I am very sorry but I fear that she will not suit. All good cooks drink.”
James S McNeill Whistler quoted in ‘Life Was Worth Living’ by Graham Robertson.
