Food Overindulgence Quotes

"Those who give themselves indigestion or get drunk, do not know how to eat or drink."

Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)
‘Physiologie du gout’


"Eat Not to dullness; drink not to elevation"

Ben Franklin


“If you cannot avoid overeating at a feast, leave the table and find relief by vomiting.”

The Wisdom of Ben Sira, 2nd Century B.C.
(‘Choice Cuts’ by Mark Kurlansky, 2002)


“Gourmandism is an impassioned, considered, and habitual preference for whatever pleases the taste. It is the enemy of overindulgence; any man who eats too much or grows drunk risks being expelled from the army of disciples.”

Jean-Antheleme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)
‘The Physiology of Taste’ (1825)
