“Hope is a good breakfast, but it is a bad supper.”
Francis Bacon, English philosopher, statesman (1561-1626)
“We plan, we toil, we suffer -- in the hope of what? A camel-load of idol's eyes? The title deeds of Radio City? The empire of Asia? A trip to the moon? No, no, no, no. Simply to wake up just in time to smell coffee and bacon and eggs. And, again I cry, how rarely it happens! But when it does happen -- then what a moment, what a morning, what a delight!”
J. B. Priestley, British author (1894-1984)
“He that lives upon Hope, dies farting.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
Poor Richard's Almanac
“He may live without books - what is knowledge but grieving?
He may live without hope - what is hope but deceiving?
He may live without love - what is passion but pining?
But where is the man who can live without dining?”
Edward Bulwer-Lytton (1831-1891) ‘Lucile’ (1860)
When asked about his carving skills, replied: "I just yell at the bird and hope the meat will fall off."
