Bursting Food Quotes

“That famish'd people must be slowly nurst,
And fed by spoonfuls, else they always burst.”

Lord Byron (1788-1824) ‘Don Juan’


“...steam was generated beyond the power of the canister to endure. As a natural consequence, the canister burst, the dead turkey sprang from his coffin of tinplate and killed the cook forthwith.”

1852 news report of an early canning industry accident


“It is a curious fact that no man likes to call himself a glutton, and yet each of us has in him a trace of gluttony, potential or actual. I cannot believe that there exists a single coherent human being who will not confess, at least to himself, that once or twice he has stuffed himself to bursting point on anything from quail financiere to flapjacks, for no other reason than the beastlike satisfaction of his belly.”

M.F.K. Fisher (1908-1992)
'An Alphabet for Gourmets' (1949)
