Food Despair Quotes


“If there were no such thing as eating, we would have to invent it to save man from despairing.”

Dr. Wilhelm Stekhel, 'The Depths of the Soul'

 

“According to a companion, Thackeray, when presented with a half-dozen 6 to 8 inch oysters common at the time: "He first selected the smallest one...and then bowed his head as though he were saying grace. Opening his mouth very wide, he struggled for a moment, after which all was over. I shall never forget the comic look of despair he cast upon the other five over-occupied shells. I asked him how he felt. 'Profoundly grateful,' he said, 'as if I had swallowed a small baby.'"

William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863)
