“My body is a temple…to Dionysus”

"My body is a temple...to Dionysus” is a drinking saying that has been printed on ecards. “Well, you can always say that your body is a temple of Dionysus, and it’s always time to party at Dionysus’ place!” was posted to the newsgroup alt.fan.cecil-adams on March 2, 2001. “My body IS a temple. To Dionysus” was posted on Twitter August 23, 2010.

“My body is a temple. The fact that the temple is dedicated to Dionysus is irrelevant”—the full saying on one ecard—was posted on Twitter on March 20, 2013.


Wikipedia: Dionysus
Dionysus (/daɪ.əˈnaɪsəs/; Greek: Διόνυσος, Dionysos) is the god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness, fertility, theatre and religious ecstasy in ancient Greek religion and myth. Wine played an important role in Greek culture, and the cult of Dionysus was the main religious focus for its unrestrained consumption. He may have been worshipped as early as c. 1500–1100 BC by Mycenean Greeks; traces of Dionysian-type cult have also been found in ancient Minoan Crete. His origins are uncertain, and his cults took many forms; some are described by ancient sources as Thracian, others as Greek.

My body is a temple. A temple for Dionysus with plenty of liquid offerings, of course.
