Table Food Quotes

"The table is the only place where one is never bored during the first hour."
Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)
‘The Physiology of Taste’ (1825)

 

"The dinner table is the center for the teaching and practicing not just of table manners but of conversation, consideration, tolerance, family feeling, and just about all the other accomplishments of polite society except the minuet."
Judith Martin

 

“In our opinion food should be sniffed lustily at table, both as a matter of precaution and as a matter of enjoyment, the sniffing of it to be regarded in the same light as the tasting of it.”
E.B. White (1899-1985) American essayist

 

“A host at a table where a guest is obliged to ask, is a host dishonored.”
La Petite Cuisine du baron Brisse (1870)

 

“A man is in general better pleased when he has a good dinner upon the table than when his wife talks Greek.”
Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)

 

“A man who can dominate a London dinner table can dominate the world.”
Oscar Wilde

 

“Be not angry or sour at table; whatever may happen put on the cheerful mien, for good humor makes one dish a feast.”
From a Shaker manual, 'Gentle Manners'

 

“Being set at the table, scratch not thyself, and take thou heed as much as thou canst not to spit, cough and blow at thy nose; but if it be needful, do it dexterously, without much noise, turning thy face sidelong.”
Francis Hawkins, ‘Youth's Behaviour’ (1663)

 

“I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not; and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.”
Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)

 

“I went to this restaurant last night that was set up like a big buffet in the shape of an Ouija board. You'd think about what kind of food you want, and the table would move across the floor to it.”
Steven Wright
