Carp Food Quotes

“Carp may be said to be water-sheep: herbivorous, gregarious, of a contented mind.”

Frank Buckland (1826-1880)


“Frying gives cooks numerous ways of concealing what appeared the day before and in a pinch facilitates sudden demands, for it takes little more time to fry a four-pound carp than to boil an egg.”

Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)


“The carp was dead, killed, assassinated, murdered in the first, second and third degree. Limp, I fell into a chair, with my hands still unwashed reached for a cigarette, lighted it, and waited for the police to come and take me into custody.”

Alice B. Toklas, American writer (1877-1967)


    "There was a Young Lady of Welling,
    Whose praise all the world was a telling;
    She played on the harp,
         and caught several carp,
    That accomplished Young Lady of Welling."

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