God made food; the devil the cooks.

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.

A Room of One's Own
It's good when food tastes good, it's kind of like proof you're alive.

Norwegian Wood
I live on good soup, not on fine words
I saw few die of hunger; of eating, a hundred thousand
In general, mankind, since the improvement of cookery, eats twice as much as nature requires
Thou shouldst eat to live; not live to eat
There is no sincerer love than the love of food
The glutton is much more than an animal and much less than a man


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
