Government & Food Quotes

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

 

"If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny."
Thomas Jefferson

 

"The major problem - one of the major problems, for there are several - one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.     
To summarize: it is a well known fact, that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job."

‘The Restaurant at the End of the Universe’

 

“Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.”
P. J. O'Rourke (1947 - )

 

“Food history is as important as a baroque church. Governments should recognize cultural heritage and protect traditional foods. A cheese is as worthy of preserving as a sixteenth-century building.”
Carlo Petrini

 

“The history of government regulation of food safety is one of government watchdogs chasing the horse after it's out of the barn.”
David A. Kessler, M.D. (FDA Commissioner)

 

“No government could survive without champagne. Champagne in the throats of our diplomatic people is like oil in the wheels of an engine.”
Joseph Dargent, French Vintner (1955)
