Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die…

A conflation of two biblical sayings: ecclesiastes viii. 15 (AV) Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry ‥ and isaiah xxii. 13 (AV) Let us eat and drink; for to morrow we shall die. There are a number of jocular variants (see for example quot. 2001).

Eat thou and drink; tomorrow thou shalt die.


But far from prompting him to repeat the maxim ‘Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!’ it spurred him rather to a sort of fiery energy, never satisfied with what it had accomplished.


Inchcape‥complained: ‘I've never before seen this place in such a hubbub.’ ‘It's the war,’ said Clarence. ‘Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we may be starving to death.’


No point in getting morbid. ‥What the hell. Eat, drink, and be merry, and all that crap. Lukas signaled the waiter and ordered another two croissants.


Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we diet.
