Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine, a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy.
Isaacson, Walter. Benjamin Franklin: An American Life. New York: Simon and Schuster, 2003. p.374
Commonly misquoted as: "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."
