Rice Food Quotes

"A diet that consists predominantly of rice leads to the use of opium, just as a diet that consists predominantly of potatoes leads to the use of liquor."

Friedrich Nietzsche


"Rice is a beautiful food. It is beautiful when it grows, precision rows of sparkling green stalks shooting up to reach the hot summer sun. It is beautiful when harvested, autumn gold sheaves piled on diked, patchwork paddies. It is beautiful when, once threshed, it enters granary bins like a (flood) of tiny seed-pearls. It is beautiful when cooked by a practiced hand, pure white and sweetly fragrant."

Shizuo Tsuji


    "There was a Young Person of Bantry,
    Who frequently slept in the pantry;
    When disturbed by the mice,
           she appeased them with rice
    That judicious Young Person of Bantry."

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


"rice is the best, the most nutritive and unquestionably the most widespread staple in the world."



“Eating rice cakes is like chewing on a foam coffee cup, only less filling.”

Dave Barry, ‘Miami Herald’ Columnist
