Pear Food Quotes

"It is, in my view, the duty of an apple to be crisp and crunchable, but a pear should have such a texture as leads to silent consumption."
Edward Bunyard, 'The Anatomy of Dessert'

"Eating pears cleans the teeth."
Korean proverb

"There are only ten minutes in the life of a pear when it is perfect to eat."
Ralph Waldo Emerson


    "There was an Old Man of Girgenti,
    Who lived in profusion and plenty;
    He lay on two chairs,
         and ate thousands of pears,
    That susceptible Man of Girgenti."

    Edward Lear, English artist, writer; known for his 'literary nonsense' & limericks  (1812-1888)


(A Comice pear is) "sweetly and subtly soft it is best eaten with a spoon, a tenderness more appealing to gourmets than to those who have to pick, ship, handle and store it in constant fear of ruinous spoilage."
Waverley Root, 'Food'

"The pear is the grandfather of the apple, its poor relation, a fallen aristocrat, the man-at-arms of our domains, which once, in our humid land, lived lonely and lordly, preserving the memory of its prestige by its haughty comportment."
Francois Pierre de la Varenne
