Human Being Food Quotes


“The introduction of cooking may well have been the decisive factor in leading man from a primarily animal existence into one that was more fully human.”
Carleton S. Coon, ‘The History of Man’ (1962)

 

“In general, I think, human beings are happiest at table when they are very young, very much in love or very alone.”
M.F.K. Fisher (1908-1992)
'An Alphabet for Gourmets' (1949)

 

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”
Robert A. Heinlein

 

“Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly.”
M. F. K. Fisher, An Alphabet for Gourmets (1908-1992)

 

“It is a curious fact that no man likes to call himself a glutton, and yet each of us has in him a trace of gluttony, potential or actual. I cannot believe that there exists a single coherent human being who will not confess, at least to himself, that once or twice he has stuffed himself to bursting point on anything from quail financiere to flapjacks, for no other reason than the beastlike satisfaction of his belly.”
M.F.K. Fisher (1908-1992)
'An Alphabet for Gourmets' (1949)
