Wheat Food Quotes


“Wheat, n.  A cereal from which a tolerably good whiskey can with some difficulty be made, and which is used also for bread. The French are said to eat more bread per capita of population than any other people, which is natural, for only they know how to make the stuff palatable.”

Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)
'The Devil's Dictionary' (1911)

 

“Gratiano speaks an infinite deal of nothing, more than any man in all of Venice. His reasons are as two grains of wheat hid in two bushels of chaff: you shall seek all day ere your find them, and when you have them, they are not worth the search.”

William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
'The Merchant of Venice'

 

“The peasants of Sicily, who have kept their own wheat and make their own natural brown bread, ah, it is amazing how fresh and sweet and clean their loaf seems, so perfumed, as home-made bread used all to be before the war.”

D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930)

 

“He dreamed he was eating shredded wheat and woke up to find the mattress half gone.”

Fred Allen (1894-1956)
