LEGS and FOOD QUOTES

“Restore human legs as a means of travel. Pedestrians rely on food for fuel and need no special parking facilities.”

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
'Quotable Feast' by Sarah E. Parvis (2001)

 

“Let the leg of mutton be awaited as the first lovers' meeting, mortified as a liar caught in the act, golden as a young German girl and bloody as a Carib.”

Des Essarts (1740-1793)
French actor in Comedie-Francaise
‘Larousse Gastronomique’ (1961)
