Spinach Quotes

“Fortunately I am not one of those beings who when they smile are apt to expose remnants, however small, of horrible and degrading spinach clinging to their teeth.”

Salvador Dali, 'The Secret Life of Salvador Dali' (1942)

 

“I detest spinach because of its utterly amorphous character....the only good, noble and edible thing to be found in that sordid nourishment is the sand.”

Salvador Dali, 'The Secret Life of Salvador Dali' (1942)

 

“Wouldn't it be awful if spinach hain't really healthful after all the th' trouble it takes t'git the sand out of it?”

Kin Hubbard, 'Abe Martin's Wisecracks' (1930)

Delia Ephron, ‘How To Eat Like A Child’

 

On spinach: "I dislike it, and am happy to dislike it because if I liked it I would eat it, and I cannot stand it."

Le Prudhomme

    "There was a Young Lady of Greenwich,
    Whose garments were border'd with Spinach;
    But a large spotty Calf,
           bit her shawl quite in half,
    Which alarmed that Young Lady of Greenwich."

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

 

"Spinach is susceptible of receiving all imprints: It is the virgin wax of the kitchen."
