Food quotes
Food
The art of dining well is no slight art, the pleasure not a slight pleasure.

- Michel de Montaigne
Unable to create a meaningful life for itself, the personality takes its own revenge: from the lower depths comes a regressive form of spontaneity: raw animality forms a counterpoise to the meaningless stimuli and the vicarious life to which the ordinary man is conditioned. Getting spiritual nourishment from this chaos of events, sensations, and devious interpretations is the equivalent of trying to pick through a garbage pile for food.

- Mumford, Lewis
There is such a thing as food and such a thing as poison. But the damage done by those who pass off poison as food is far less than that done by those who generation after generation convince people that food is poison.

- Goodman, Paul
Not necessity, not desire --no, the love of power is the demon of men. Let them have everything --health, food, a place to live, entertainment --they are and remain unhappy and low-spirited: for the demon waits and waits and will be satisfied.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
I've been on a diet for two weeks and all I've lost is two weeks.

- Totie Fields
He looked about as inconspicuous as a tarantula on a slice of angel food.

- Chandler, Raymond
The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you're hungry again.

- George Miller
There are realities we all share, regardless of our nationality, language, or individual tastes. As we need food, so do we need emotional nourishment: love, kindness, appreciation, and support from others. We need to understand our environment and our relationship to it. We need to fulfill certain inner hungers: the need for happiness, for peace of mind for wisdom.

- Walters, J. Donald
HEART, n. An automatic, muscular blood-pump. Figuratively, this useful organ is said to be the esat of emotions and sentiments -- a very pretty fancy which, however, is nothing but a survival of a once universal belief. It is now known that the sentiments and emotions reside in the stomach, being evolved from food by chemical action of the gastric fluid. The exact process by which a beefsteak becomes a feeling -- tender or not, according to the age of the animal from which it was cut; the successive stages of elaboration through which a caviar sandwich is transmuted to a quaint fancy and reappears as a pungent epigram; the marvelous functional methods of converting a hard-boiled egg into religious contrition, or a cream-puff into a sigh of sensibility -- these things have been patiently ascertained by M. Pasteur, and by him expounded with convincing lucidity. (See, also, my monograph, _The Essential Identity of the Spiritual Affections and Certain Intestinal Gases Freed in Digestion_ -- 4to, 687 pp.) In a scientific work entitled, I believe, _Delectatio Demonorum_ (John Camden Hotton, London, 1873) this view of the sentiments receives a striking illustration; and for further light consult Professor Dam's famous treatise on _Love as a Product of Alimentary Maceration_.

- Ambrose Bierce
We are indeed much more than what we eat, but what we eat can nevertheless help us to be much more than what we are.

- Adelle Davis
Children today are tyrants. They contradict their parents, gobble their food, and tyrannize their teachers.

- Socrates
Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.

- Burbank, Luther
Eating is really one of your indoor sports. You play three times a day, and it's well worth while to make the game as pleasant as possible.

- Dorothy Draper

- Miller, Henry
The food here is so tasteless you could eat a meal of it and belch and it wouldn't remind you of anything.

- Foxx, Redd
The most dangerous food to eat is a wedding cake.

- Proverb
What is food to one, is to others bitter poison.

- Lucretius
Taking food alone tends to make one hard and coarse. Those accustomed to it must lead a Spartan life if they are not to go downhill. Hermits have observed, if for only this reason, a frugal diet. For it is only in company that eating is done justice; food must be divided and distributed if it is to be well received.

- Benjamin, Walter
The Museum is not meant either for the wanderer to see by accident or for the pilgrim to see with awe. It is meant for the mere slave of a routine of self-education to stuff himself with every sort of incongruous intellectual food in one indigestible meal.

- Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Yes, we are all different. Different customs, different foods, different mannerisms, different languages, but not so different that we cannot get along with one another. If we will disagree without being disagreeable.

- Kohe, J. Martin
