Sinclair Lewis, 'Main Street' (1920)


“The least developed of all in Tarzan was the sense of taste, for he could eat luscious fruits, or raw flesh, long buried with almost equal appreciation; but in that he differed but slightly from more civilized epicures.”

Edgar Rice Burroughs, 'Tarzan of the Apes' (1914)


"An epicure is one who gets nothing better than the cream of everything but cheerfully makes the best of it."

Oliver Herford


“Serenely full, the epicure would say, Fate cannot harm me, I have dined today.”

Sydney Smith (1771-1845) quoted in ‘Lady Holland's Memoir’


“(The pig) hath a fair sepulchre in the grateful stomach of the judicious epicure - and for such a tomb might be content to die.”

Charles Lamb (1775-1834)
