Food for Thought Quotes

Food for thought is no substitute for the real thing.”
Walt Kelly (1913-1973)
'creator of 'Pogo' the comic strip

 

“I carry on mental dialogues with the shoots of the grapevine, who reveal to me grand thoughts and to whom I can retell wondrous things.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) German author, natural philosopher

 

“'When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,' said Piglet at last, 'what's the first thing you say to yourself?' 'What's for breakfast?' said Pooh. 'What do you say, Piglet?' 'I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?' said Piglet. Pooh nodded thoughtfully. 'It's the same thing,' he said.”
A. A. Milne,  ‘The House at Pooh Corner’

 

“It it had been an Italian who codified the world of cuisine, it would be thought of as Italian.”
Escoffier

 

“Who can begin conventional amiability the first thing in the morning? It is the hour of savage instincts and natural tendencies; it is the triumph of the Disagreeable and the Cross. I am convinced that the Muses and the Graces never thought of having breakfast anywhere but in bed.”
Elizabeth Russell (Mary Annette Russell, Countess von Arnim) (1866-1941) English novelist,
‘Elizabeth and Her German Garden’ (1898)

 

“The thought of two thousand people crunching celery at the same time horrified me.”
George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright (1856-1950)
Explaining why he had turned down an invitation to a vegetarian gala dinner.

 

“I recollected the thoughtless saying of a great princess, who, on being informed that the country people had no bread, replied, 'Then let them eat pastry!'”
Jean Jacques Rousseau, ‘Confessions’

 

“It's difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato.”
Lewis Grizzard

 

“The corned beef is exquisitely done, and as tender as a young lady's heart, all owing to my skilful cookery; for I consulted Mrs. Hale (Sarah Hale's cookbook) at every step, and precisely followed her directions. To say the truth, I look upon it as such a masterpiece in its way, that it seems irreverential to eat it. Things on which so much thought and labor are bestowed should surely be immortal.....”
Nathaniel Hawthorne (while Mrs. Hawthorne was away)

 

“Food is about agriculture, about ecology, about man's relationship with nature, about the climate, about nation-building, cultural struggles, friends and enemies, alliances, wars, religion. It is about memory and tradition and, at times, even about sex.”
Mark Kurlansky, 'Choice Cuts' (2002)

 

“My dear boy, when curds are churned, the finest part rises upward and turns into butter. So too, dear boy, when food is eaten the choice parts rise upward and become mind.”
Chandogya Upanishad
(Choice Cuts by Mark Kurlansky, 2002)
