Salt Quotes

"With all thine offerings thou shalt offer salt."
Moses, ‘Leviticus’
 

"Salt is what makes things taste bad when it isn't in them."
Anonymous
 

“Thou hadst better eat salt with the Philosophers of Greece, than sugar with the Courtiers of Italy.”
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
‘Poor Richard's Almanac’

 

"Where would we be without salt?"
James Beard (1903-1985)
 

"Of all smells, bread; of all tastes, salt."

“Trust no one unless you have eaten much salt with him.”
Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero)  (106-43 BC)
Roman Statesman

 

“Salt is the only rock directly consumed by man. It corrodes but preserves, desiccates but is wrested from the water. It has fascinated man for thousands of years not only as a substance he prized and was willing to labour to obtain, but  also as a generator of poetic and of mythic meaning. The contradictions it embodies only intensify its power and its links with experience of the sacred.”
Margaret Visser, 20th century author
 

“Salt is the policeman of taste: it keeps the various flavors of a dish in order and restrains the stronger from tyrannizing over the weaker.”
Margaret Visser, 20th century author
“Salt is born of the purest of parents: the sun and the sea.”
Pythagoras (580 BC - 500 BC)
 

“It takes four men to dress a salad: a wise man for the salt, a madman for the pepper, a miser for the vinegar, and a spendthrift for the oil.”
unknown
 

"Many are the ways and many the recipes for dressing hares; but this is the best of all, to place before a hungry set of guests a slice of roasted meat fresh from the spit, hot, season'd only with plain, simple salt....All other ways are quite superfluous, such as when cooks pour a lot of sticky, clammy sauce upon it."
Archestratus


"An honest laborious Country-man, with good Bread, Salt and a little Parsley, will make a contented Meal with a roasted Onion."
John Evelyn (1620-1706)


"Ham: 40 days in salt, 40 days hanging, in 40 days eaten."
Joseph Delteil, French writer (1894-1978).
‘La Cuisine paleolithique’, 1964


"Wit is the salt of conversation, not the food."
William Hazlitt (1778-1830)
