The Young House-keeper’ by William Andrus Alcott (1846)
 

"Playwrights are like men who have been dining for a month in an Indian restaurant. After eating curry night after night, they deny the existence of asparagus."
Peter Ustinov
Christian Science Monitor’, 11/14/62
 

"Pray how does your asparagus perform?"
John Adams, in a letter to his wife Abigail
 

"You needn't tell me that a man who doesn't love oysters and asparagus and good wines has got a soul, or a stomach either. He's simply got the instinct for being unhappy."
