"Not all men who drink are poets. Some of us drink because we aren't poets."
unknown

G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936)

 

“Chameleons feed on light and air: Poets' food is love and fame.”
Percy Bysshe Shelley, ‘An Exhortation’

 

    “For nothing keeps a poet
    In his high singing mood
    Like unappeasable hunger
    For unattainable food.”

Joyce Kilmer (1866-1918)

     

    “But I will place this carefully fed pig    
    Within the crackling oven; and, I pray,    
    What nicer dish can e'er be given to man.”

Aeschylus, ancient Greek poet

     

“When poets write about food it is usually celebratory. Food as the thing-in-itself, but also the thoughtful preparation of meals, the serving of meals, meals communally shared: a sense of the sacred in the profane.”
Joyce Carol Oates, American writer. (1935 - )
