Fortunes and Food Quotes

“He that waits upon fortune, is never sure of a dinner.”

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)


“This stuff tastes awful; I could have made a fortune selling it in my health-food store.”

Woody Allen, Sleeper


“Go, little one. In this world there are excellent callings. Leave us to languish; misery is our lot and we must die of misery. This is the time of fine fortunes, it only needs wit to make one, and wit you have. Go, little one, and perhaps this evening or tomorrow some fine house will open its doors to you. Go with what God has given you.”

Careme's father gave him this advice when he abandoned him in a tavern at age 15 (1799) Logo
