Money & Food Quotes

“It's more useful to have knowledge about cuts of meat than a lot of money.”
Jacques Pepin

"Money is the root of all evil, and yet it is such a useful root that we cannot get on without it any more than we can without potatoes."
Louisa May Alcott, U.S. novelist (1832-1888)

“When I get a little money, I buy books. And if there is any left over, I buy food.”
Desiderius Erasmus (1466? - 1536)

“Money brings you food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintances, but not friends.”
Henrik Ibsen, Norwegian playwright (1828-1906)

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

“There are only two things our customers have, time and money - and they don't like spending either one of them, so we better sell them their hamburgers quickly.”
James McLamore, founder of Burger King

“No one will pay good money to get from Berlin to Potsdam in one hour when he can ride his horse there in one day for free.”
King William I of Prussia, 1864, on hearing of the invention of trains.

“With money anyone can offer succulent dishes and famous wines, but curtesy and kindness cannot be bought.”
Lucien Tendret (1825-1896)

“To buy very good wine nowadays requires only money. To serve it to your guests is a sign of fatigue.”
William F. Buckley, ‘Harpers Bazaar’ (September, 1979)

Coffee leads men to trifle away their time, scald their chops, and spend their money, all for a little base, black, thick, nasty, bitter, stinking nauseous puddle water.”
‘The Women's Petition Against Coffee’ (1674)

“Food for all is a necessity. Food should not be a merchandise, to be bought and sold as jewels are bought and sold by those who have the money to buy. Food is a human necessity, like water and air, it should be available.”
Pearl Buck (1892-1973) American Nobel Prize winning author

“A fruit is a vegetable with looks and money. Plus, if you let fruit rot, it turns into wine, something Brussels sprouts never do.”
P. J. O'Rourke (1947 - )

“Maybe a person's time would be as well spent raising food as raising money to buy food.”
Frank A. Clark
