Wisdom From The Bottom of the Bottle 

The key to a philosophical existence is cheap Mexican wine.

That's Fred Reed, who has moved himself south of the border permanently. I fully support his new project:

Instead of working, I’m going to cultivate a talent for quietly disliking a great many people and things. To hell with Marcus Aurelius, Churchill, Pericles, Popsicles, what have you. I’m going to pattern myself on Eeyore, a great thinker and less of an ass than most.

Except maybe the "quietly" part. Instead of working, I'm cultivating a talent for open and notorious dislike for many people and things.
