Whale Food Quotes

“Mozzarella has to be perfect and impeccably sourced or it's like eating a blind whale's eyeball.”

Adrian Anthony (A.A.) Gill, British writer. (1954- )


“Like the whale who swallowed Jonah, we have engulfed all national dishes known to civilized man and made them in delight, if not in name our own.”

Louis P. De Gouy, ‘The Soup Book’ (1949)


“The fact is, that among his hunters at least, the whale would by all hands be considered a noble dish, were there not so much of him; but when you come to sit down before a meat-pie nearly one hundred feet long, it takes away your appetite.”

Herman Mellville, 'Moby Dick' (1851)


“It is upon record, that three centuries ago the tongue of the Right Whale was esteemed a great delicacy in France, and commanded large prices there.”

Herman Mellville, 'Moby Dick' (1851)


“Agassiz does recommend authors to eat fish, because the phosphorus in it makes brains. But I cannot help you to a decision about the amount you need to eat. Perhaps a couple of whales would be enough.”

Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens)
