Food quotes
Food
Words do two major things: They provide food for the mind and create light for understanding and awareness.

- Rohn, Jim
When I get a little money, I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes.

- Erasmus, Desiderius
If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house and eat with him... The people who give you their food give you their heart.

- Cesar Chavez
FRYING-PAN, n. One part of the penal apparatus employed in that punitive institution, a woman's kitchen. The frying-pan was invented by Calvin, and by him used in cooking span-long infants that had died without baptism; and observing one day the horrible torment of a tramp who had incautiously pulled a fried babe from the waste-dump and devoured it, it occurred to the great divine to rob death of its terrors by introducing the frying-pan into every household in Geneva. Thence it spread to all corners of the world, and has been of invaluable assistance in the propagation of his sombre faith. The following lines (said to be from the pen of his Grace Bishop Potter) seem to imply that the usefulness of this utensil is not limited to this world; but as the consequences of its employment in this life reach over into the life to come, so also itself may be found on the other side, rewarding its devotees: Old Nick was summoned to the skies. Said Peter: "Your intentions Are good, but you lack enterprise Concerning new inventions. "Now, broiling in an ancient plan Of torment, but I hear it Reported that the frying-pan Sears best the wicked spirit. "Go get one -- fill it up with fat -- Fry sinners brown and good in't." "I know a trick worth two o'that," Said Nick -- "I'll cook their food in't."

- Ambrose Bierce
Our minds are like our stomachs; they are whetted by the change of their food, and variety supplies both with fresh appetites.

- Quintilian
The poor on the borderline of starvation live purposeful lives. To be engaged in a desperate struggle for food and shelter is to be wholly free from a sense of futility.

- Eric Hoffer
The sweetest honey Is loathsome in his own deliciousness And in the taste confounds the appetite.

- William Shakespeare
When I gave food to the poor, they called me a saint. When I asked why the poor were hungry, they called me a communist.

- Camara, Dom H.
Just as animal research tells us that gluttony and sloth are side effects of a drive to accumulate body fat, it also says that eating in moderation and being physically active (literally, having the energy to exercise) are not evidence of moral rectitude. Rather, they're the metabolic benefits of a body that's programmed to remain lean.

- Gary Taubes
Upscale people are fixated with food simply because they are now able to eat so much of it without getting fat, and the reason they don't get fat is that they maintain a profligate level of calorie expenditure. The very same people whose evenings begin with melted goats cheese... get up at dawn to run, break for a mid-morning aerobics class, and watch the evening news while racing on a stationary bicycle.

- Ehrenreich, Barbara
I knew a man who gave up smoking, drinking, and rich food. He was healthy right up to the day he killed himself.

- Johnny Carson
He who comes first, eats first. [Familiar as: First come first served.]

- Eike von Repkow
The tools I need for my work are paper, tobacco, food, and a little whiskey.

- Faulkner, William
Thou shouldst eat to live; not live to eat.

- Socrates
We may find in the long run that tinned food is a deadlier weapon than the machine-gun.

- Orwell, George
We have to have the money to do the work we want to do, as well as to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. Fat commissions are good, but not always easy to come by, and each new painting takes its time. So we need to find every way possible to earn extra income from our work.

- Elizabeth Aston
I've been on a diet for two weeks and all I've lost is two weeks.

- Totie Fields
Art is merely the refuge which the ingenious have invented, when they were supplied with food and women, to escape the tediousness of life.

- W. Somerset Maugham
There are few things so pleasant as a picnic eaten in perfect comfort.

- W. Somerset Maugham
Any healthy man can go without food for two days - but not without poetry.

- Charles Baudelaire
