Food Swallowing Quotes

“I hate a man who swallows, affecting not to know what he is eating. I suspect his taste in higher matters.”
Charles Lamb (1775-1834)


“Between the ages of twenty and fifty, John Doe spends some twenty thousand hours chewing and swallowing food, more than eight hundred days and nights of steady eating. The mere contemplation of this fact is upsetting enough.”

M.F.K. Fisher (1908-1992) 'Serve It Forth' (1937)


“When compelled to cook, I produce a meal that would make a sword swallower gag.”

Russell Baker (1925-?)


“A daydream is a meal at which images are eaten. Some of us are gourmets, some gourmands, and a good many take their images precooked out of a can and swallow them down whole, absent-mindedly and with little relish.”

W. H. Auden (Wystan Hugh Auden) (1907-1973)
