Lewis Mumford, urban planner (1895-1990)

 

“...corn provided infant America with a backbone while it was developing the use of its legs. America was growing, quite literally, up the cornstalk.”

Dorthy Giles, 'Singing Valleys: The Story of Corn'

 

He described the pig as "an encyclopedic animal, a meal on legs."

Grimod de la Reynière (1758-1838)

 

“Cantonese will eat anything in the sky but airplanes, anything in the sea but submarines, and anything with four legs but the table.”

Amanda Bennet

French actor in Comedie-Francaise
‘Larousse Gastronomique’ (1961)
