Food Disgust Quotes

“A man must swallow a toad every morning if he wishes to be sure of finding nothing still more disgusting before the day is over.”

Nicolas Chamfort, French writer. (1741-1794)


"Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism, yet we make the same impression on Buddhists and vegetarians, for we feed on babies, though not our own."

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)


“The vine bears three kinds of grapes: the first of pleasure, the second of intoxication, the third of disgust.”

Anacharsis, Scythian philosopher (6th century B.C.)


“It is disgusting to notice the increase in the quantity of coffee used by my subjects, and the amount of money that goes out of the country as a consequence. Everybody is using coffee; this must be prevented. His Majesty was brought up on beer, and so were both his ancestors and officers. Many battles have been fought and won by soldiers nourished on beer, and the King does not believe that coffee-drinking soldiers can be relied upon to endure hardships in case of another war.”

Frederick the Great of Prussia (1777)
‘Scientific American’, June 1998


“It is only by softening and disguising dead flesh by culinary preparation that it is rendered susceptible of mastication or digestion; and tht the sight of its bloody juices and raw horror does not excite intolerable loathing and disgust.”

Percy Bysshe Shelley, 'Queen Mab' 1813.
