Ravenous Stomach Food Quotes

“The ravenous stomach....It is the least refined of organs, a fetid, rank and gaseous trough that knows but the pressure of fullness, the cavernous echo of emptiness - a pink, moist, hairless creature whose call is a belch, and who responds to its ingesta with delirious contractions and metallic bleeping. It is, all in all, an uncouth performance. Devoid of dream and imagination, lacking the lambent finesse of the heart, ignorant of the sweet language of the sex organs, the stomach sweats and steams and grunts most happily.”

Richard Selzer, 'The Belly' (1975).
Consuming Passions’, Jonathan Green, ed. (1985)
