Ale - Food Quotations

“Dost thou think, because thou art virtuous, there shall be no more cakes and ale?”
William Shakespeare (1564-1616) 'Twelfth Night'

I would give all my fame for a pot of ale, and safety.”
William Shakespeare (1564-1616) 'King Henry V'


"I have fed purely upon ale; I have eat my ale, drank my ale, and I always sleep upon ale."
George Farquhar (1678-1707)


“Some brewers of Ale and Beere doe put it into their drinke to make it more heady, fit to please drunkards, who thereby, according to their several dispositions, become either dead drunke, or foolish drunke, or madde drunke.”
Matthias de Lobel, Flemish botanist, 17th century


“There was an Old Man with an owl,
Who continued to bother and howl;
He sate on a rail, and imbibed bitter ale,
Which refreshed that Old Man and his owl.”

Edward Lear, English artist, writer; known for his 'literary nonsense' & limericks  (1812-1888)
