Work & Food Quotes

"Never work before breakfast; if you have to work before breakfast, eat your breakfast first."

Josh Billings (Henry Wheeler Shaw) (1818-1885)


    “Too much work, and no vacation,
    Deserves at least a small libation.
    So hail! my friends, and raise your glasses;
    Work's the curse of the drinking classes.”

    Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)


“Non cooks think it's silly to invest two hours' work in two minutes' enjoyment; but if cooking is evanescent, well, so is the ballet.”
Julia Child (1912-2004)


“Obesity is never found among the savages or among the classes of society where the people have to work to eat, and where they only eat to live.”
Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826)


“Work before eating, rest after eating. Eat not ravenously, filling the mouth gulp after gulp without breathing space.”
Maimonides (1135-1204)
