Vice Food Quotes

“The worst vice of the solitary is the worship of his food.”

Cyril Connolly (1903-1974)


Gin-drinking is a great vice in England, but wretchedness and dirt are a greater; and until you improve the homes of the poor, or persuade a half-famished wretch not to seek relief in the temporary oblivion of his own misery, with the pittance which divided among his family would furnish a morsel of bread for each, gin-shops will increase in number and splendour.”

Charles Dickens in 'Sketches By Boz’ (1837)


“The casuists have classed gluttony as one of the seven deadly sins, but if it is not tainted by the vice of drinking to inebriation or eating to excess, it deserves to be on a par with the theological virtues.”

Lucien Tendret (1825-1896)
