Hunger Food Quotes

“Hunger is the best pickle.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
 

“Hunger makes you restless. you dream about food -- not just any food, but perfect food, the best food, magical meals, famous and awe-inspiring, the one piece of meat, the exact taste of buttery corn, tomatoes so ripe they split and sweeten the air, beans so crisp they snap between the teeth, gravy like mother's milk singing to your bloodstream.”
Dorothy Allison (1949--)
 

“'Hey, Earthman? You hungry kid?' said Zaphod's voice.           'Er, well, yes, a little peckish, I suppose,' said Arthur.          'Okay, baby, hold tight,' said Zaphod. 'We'll take in a quick bit at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe.'”
Douglas Adams
'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' (1979)

 

“At the working man's house hunger looks in but dares not enter.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) ‘Poor Richard's Almanac’


“Hunger never saw bad bread.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) ‘Poor Richard's Almanac’


“An empty stomach is not a good political advisor.”
Albert Einstein
 

"There's no sauce in the world like hunger."
Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616)
‘Don Quixote de la Mancha’



“In 'The Republic' he [Plato] states that the enjoyment of food is not a true pleasure because the purpose of eating is to relieve pain -- hunger.”
Mark Kurlansky, 'Choice Cuts' (2002)
 

"There is a communion of more than our bodies when bread is broken and wine drunk. And that is my answer, when people ask me: Why do you write about hunger, and not wars or love?"
M.F.K. Fisher in 'The Gastronomical Me'
 

"It has been well said that a hungry man is more interested in four sandwiches than four freedoms."
Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., American diplomat
 

"True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made."
Franklin Roosevelt
 

"It seems to me that our three basic needs, for food and security and love, are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think of one without the others. So it happens that when I write of hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth and the love of it and the hunger for it; and then the warmth and richness and fine reality of hunger satisfied; and it is all one."
M. F. K. Fisher, ‘The Art of Eating’
 

"As God is my witness, as God is my witness....I'm never going to be hungry again. No, nor any of my folks. If I have to steal or kill - as God is my witness, I'm never going to be hungry again."
Scarlett O'Hara
In ‘Gone With The Wind’ by Margaret Mitchell

 

"Hunger: One of the few cravings that cannot be appeased with another solution."
Irwin Van Grove
 

"Hungry is a mighty fine sauce."
Southern folk saying
 

“The main problem in marriage is that, for a man, sex is a hunger - like eating. If a man is hungry and can't get to a fancy French restaurant, he'll go to a hot dog stand.”
Joan Fontaine
 

“That famish'd people must be slowly nurst,
And fed by spoonfuls, else they always burst.”

Lord Byron (1788-1824) ‘Don Juan’
 

“Since hunger is the most primitive and permanent of human wants, men always want to eat, but since their wish not to be a mere animal is also profound, they have always attended with special care to the manners which conceal the fact that at the table we are animals feeding.”
John Erskine, 'The Complete Life'
 

“It is not good for all our wishes to be filled; through sickness we recognize the value of health; through evil, the value of good; through hunger, the value of food; through exertion, the value of rest.”
Dorothy Canfield Fisher (1879-1958) American writer.
 

“It is not necessary to advertise food to hungry people, fuel to cold people, or houses to the homeless.”
John Kenneth Galbraith (1908 -)
 

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