Olive Food Quotes

“I drink too much. The last time I gave a urine sample it had an olive in it.”

Rodney Dangerfield (1921-2004)
American comedian, actor. 


"Except the vine, there is no plant which bears a fruit of as great importance as the olive."

Pliny (AD 23-79)


    “A toast to the Cocktail Party   
    Where olives are speared    
    And friends are stabbed.”



“Happiness is.....finding two olives in your martini when you're hungry.”

Johnny Carson, ‘Happiness is a Dry Martini’


“The whole Mediterranean, the sculpture, the palm, the gold beads, the bearded heroes, the wine, the ideas, the ships, the moonlight, the winged gorgons, the bronze men, the philosophers -all of it seems to rise in the sour, pungent taste of these black olives between the teeth. A taste older than meat, older than wine. A taste as old as cold water.”

Lawrence Durrell (1912-1990) ‘Prospero's Cell’ (1945)
