Consolation Quotes


“When I am in trouble, eating is the only thing that consoles me. Indeed, when I am really in great trouble, as anyone who knows me intimately will tell you, I refuse everything except food and drink.”

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)

 

Chowder breathes reassurance. It steams consolation.”

Clementine Paddleford
Charles Wysocki's Americana Cookbook’

 

“It is a very poor consolation to be told that the man who has given one a bad dinner, or poor wine, is irreproachable in private life. Even the cardinal virtues cannot atone for half-cold entrees.”

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)

 

“It [soup] breathes reassurance, it offers consolation; after a weary day it promotes sociability...There is nothing like a bowl of hot soup, it's wisp of aromatic steam teasing the nostrils into quivering anticipation.”

Louis P. DeGouy (Chef at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel for 30 years) ‘The Soup Book’ (1949)
