Herring Quotes

“Your raiment, O herring, displays the rainbow colors of the setting sun, the patina on old copper, the golden-brown of Cordoba leather, the autumnal tints of sandalwood and saffron.  Your head, O herring, flames like a golden helmet, and your eyes, are like black studs in circlets of copper.”

Joris Karl Huysmans (1848-1907) French author, as quoted in Larousse Gastronomique (1988)


“Fools are as like husbands as pilchards are to herrings; the husbands the bigger.”

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) 'Twelfth Night'
