Fasting Quotes


“When the stomach is full, it is easy to talk of fasting.”

Saint Jerome (347-420)
 

 

“The capon burns, the pig falls from the spit,
The clock hath strucken twelve upon the bell;
My mistress made it one upon my cheek:
She is so hot because the meat is cold;
The meat is cold because you come not home;
You come not home because you have no stomach;
You have no stomach, having broke your fast;
But we, that know what 'tis to fast and pray,
Are penitent for your default to-day.”

William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
'Comedy of Errors'

 


“He that sups upon salad, goes not to bed fasting.”

Thomas Fuller, English clergyman (1608-1661)
