“I'll make you feed on berries and on roots,
And feed on curds and whey, and suck the goat,
And cabin in a cave, and bring you up
To be a warrior, and command a camp."
William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
'Titus Andronicus' Act IV Scene II
“My dear boy, when curds are churned, the finest part rises upward and turns into butter. So too, dear boy, when food is eaten the choice parts rise upward and become mind.”
(‘Choice Cuts’ by Mark Kurlansky, 2002)
“Perfectly prepared lobster are "not unlike hot curds, juicy and tender, and sweet as scorched honey from ocean depths."
Kenneth Robert, ‘Northwest Passage’
Little Miss Muffet,
She sat on a tuffet,
Eating of curds and whey:
There came a big spider,
Who sat down beside her.
And frightened Miss Muffet away!
Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider, who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.
