Flesh Quotes


“I have always eaten animal flesh with a somewhat guilty conscience.”
Albert Einstein


“Professors never eat boiled beef, out of respect for their principles and because they know the incontestable truth that boiled beef is flesh without its juice.”
Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826) ‘Meditation VI’


“Give me yesterday's Bread, this Day's Flesh, and last Year's Cyder.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) ‘Poor Richard's Almanac’


“We were taken to a fast food cafĂ© where our order was fed into a computer. Our hamburgers, made from the flesh of chemically impregnated cattle, had been broiled over counterfeit charcoal, placed between slices of artificially flavored cardboard and served to us by recycled juvenile delinquents.”
Jean Michel Chapereau


“It (pheasant) is the king of earthly poultry, as the primacy of aquatic birds belongs to the swan. What more exquisite flesh can you eat.Olivier de Serre
It is only by softening and disguising dead flesh by culinary preparation that it is rendered susceptible of mastication or digestion; and that the sight of its bloody juices and raw horror does not excite intolerable loathing and disgust.”
Percy Bysshe Shelley, 'Queen Mab' (1813)


“O God! that bread should be so dear,
And flesh and blood so cheap!”
Thomas Hood, British poet (1799-1845)
