Quotes about God & Food

“Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.”
Voltaire (Pen name of Francois Marie Arouet, French writer and philosopher, one of the leaders of the Enlightenment)

“We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage in Cana as of a miracle. But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with the grapes, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

“Any fool can count the seeds in an apple. Only God can count all the apples in one seed.”
Robert Schuller, evangelist
‘How to Be an Extraordinary Person in an Ordinary World’

 

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)

 

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, author of 'Lord of the Rings' (1892-1973)
