Brain Food Quotes

“....every one knows that some young bucks among the epicures, by continually dining upon calves brains, by and by get to have little brains of their own, so as to be able to tell a calf's head from their own heads; which, indeed, requires uncommon descrimination.”

Herman Mellville, 'Moby Dick' (1851)

 

“He has not so much brain as earwax.”

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) 'Othello'

Alcohol is a good preservative for everything but brains.”
