Beans: Food Quotes

“And this is good old Boston, The home of the bean and the cod...”
John Collins Bossidy in Charles Wysocki
‘Americana Cookbook’


“Beans are highly nutritious and satisfying, they can also be delicious if and when properly prepared, and they posses over all vegetables the great advantage of being just as good, if not better, when kept waiting, an advantage in the case of people whose disposition or occupation makes it difficult for them to be punctual at mealtime.”
Andre Simon (1877-1970)
‘The Concise Encyclopedia of Gastronomy’ (1952)

    "There was an old man of Orleans,
    Who was given to eating of beans;
    Till once out of sport,
         he swallowed a quart,
    That dyspeptic old man of Orleans."

    Edward Lear, English artist, writer; known for his 'literary nonsense' & limericks  (1812-1888)


“Inhabitants of underdeveloped nations and victims of natural disasters are the only people who have ever been happy to see soybeans.”
Fran Lebowitz, journalist


“Red beans and ricely yours."
Louis Armstrong loved red beans and rice so much he signed his personal letters thus.


“Some people are fat, some people are lean.
But I want you to show me the person who doesn't like butterbeans Yay!”

B-52's Song, 'Butterbean' 1983
