Indigestion Quotes

 

“....oysters are the only food that never causes indigestion. Indeed, a man would have to eat sixteen dozen of these acephalous molluscs in order to gain the 315 grammes of nitrogen he requires daily.'”
Jules Verne, 'Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea' (1870)

 

"Indigestion: A disease which the patient and his friends frequently mistake for deep religious conviction and concern for the salvation of mankind. As the simple Red Man of the Western Wild put it, with, it must be confessed, a certain force: 'Plenty well, no pray; big belly ache, heap God.'"
Ambrose Bierce (American writer)
‘The Devil's Dictionary’, 1906
 

"Indigestion is charged by God with enforcing morality on the stomach."
Victor Hugo, French writer (1802-1885)

 

“There is nothing so conducive to indigestion as a face of woe and anxiety at the head or foot of the table. If anything goes wrong, do not notice it, unless it is shockingly glaring; in this case, if possible, pass it off with a jest.”
‘The Family ABC, Containing Indispensable Advice for Every Home’ (1911)

 

“Those who give themselves indigestion or get drunk, do not know how to eat or drink.”
Jean-Antheleme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)

 

“The cold truth is that family dinners are more often than not an ordeal of nervous indigestion, preceded by hidden resentment and ennui and accompanied by psychosomatic jitters.”
M.F.K. Fisher (1908-1992)

 

“I pray that death may strike me
In the middle of a large meal.
I wish to be buried under the tablecloth
Between four large dishes.
And I desire that this short inscription
Should be engraved on my tombstone.
Here lies the first poet
Ever to die of indigestion.”
Marc Antoine D├ęsaugiers
French songwriter & poet (1772-1827)
