Food quotes by Paul Auster
#1. You're a dreamer, boy," he said. "Your mind is on the moon, and from the looks of things, it's never
going to be anywhere else. You have no ambitions, you don't give a damn about money, and you're
too much of a philosopher to have any feeling for art. What am I going to do with you? You need
someone to look after you, to make sure you have food in your belly and a bit of cash in your pocket.
Once I'm gone, you'll be right back where you started. #Quote by Paul Auster
Food quotes by Will Advise
#2. A poem to Raymond, whom everybody loves, originally composed on a waterproof smartphone in a sea of love, which was hidden under the pile of garbage that my bum-pals that have no pen names, or pen-pals, or names, for that matter, brought to me as an offering on the 1st of April 1877, exactly 111 years and 7 months before I was brought forth to this world, because some anonymous prophet told them this would bring luck, joy, happiness, food, and, of course – shelter from evil (he was lying):

If it's fantasy you seek,
to E. Feist then, you must speak.
All he writes is all there is,
for his words, they move the seas.
.
I would write, but I know naught.
In my heart there is a draught.
Hidden desert - golden sands.
Few my love can ever stand.

And so far I've talked to many,
a reply - will there be any?
I know - not, yet I know naught,
all to question, I was taught...

So I learn, I borrow wisdom,
from the great, the ones with vision.
They can teach, the few that grasp,
concepts from a long forgotten past. #Quote by Will Advise
Food quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#3. I am a practical girl, and a life is only so long. It should be spent in as much peace and good eating and good reading as possible and no undue excitement. That is all I am after. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Food quotes by Lysa TerKeurst
#4. If we find that certain foods are impossible to walk away from - we can't or won't deny ourselves an unhealthy choice in order to make a healthier choice - then it's a clue we are being ruled by this food on some level. #Quote by Lysa TerKeurst
Food quotes by Charlie Trotter
#5. In a time when it is common for chefs to simply reproduce the innovations of others, the few who speak for themselves through their food become the skilled artists of their time. #Quote by Charlie Trotter
Food quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#6. (Watching her) was a little like watching water lilies; rather more like smelling a dinner he was not allowed to eat. Was it possible to be starved for so long as to forget the taste of food, for the pangs of hunger to burn out like ash? It seemed so. But both the pleasure and the pain were his heart's secret, here. He was put in mind, suddenly, of the soil at the edge of a recovering blight; the weedy bedraggled look of it, unlovely yet hopeful. Blight was a numb gray thing, without sensation. Did the return of green life hurt? Odd thought. #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Food quotes by Deepak Chopra
#7. One person's enemy is another person's best friend. My favorite food might give you a rash. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Food quotes by David Ricardo
#8. But it is clear that the price of labour has no necessary connection with the price of food, since it depends entirely on the supply of labourers compared with the demand. #Quote by David Ricardo
Food quotes by Claudia Shear
#9. You talk to people who serve you the food the same way you talk to the people you eat the food with. You talk to people who work for you the same way you talk to the people you work for. It's a one-size-fits-all proposition. #Quote by Claudia Shear
Food quotes by Gary Larson
#10. Humans have changed ecosystems more rapidly and extensively than in any comparable period of time in human history, largely to meet rapidly growing demands for food, fresh water, timber, fiber and fuel. This has resulted in a substantial and largely irreversible loss in the diversity of life on Earth. #Quote by Gary Larson
Food quotes by Roberta Gellis
#11. Libraries shelter the spirit, provide food for the mind, and answer the questions raised by the problems of life. They have been the home of my heart since I was a very young child, in whatever place I happened to live. #Quote by Roberta Gellis
Food quotes by Anthony Bourdain
#12. Food, it appeared, could be important. It could be an event. It had secrets. #Quote by Anthony Bourdain
Food quotes by R.L. Mathewson
#13. If I order an appetizer is there any chance I can get it quickly? I'm two and a half months pregnant with a Bradford," she said, not mentioning it was twins because the thought was actually starting to scare her and she hadn't told Trevor yet and didn't want him finding out this way. She just hoped the woman understood because she was close to crying. Judging by the slightly startled look on the woman's face she did.
The waitress shook her head. "No, you're right. You probably won't be able to survive the wait," she said, sending Trevor, who was still trying to get the woman to leave, a glare. "I'll bring you out a bowl of clam chowder followed by chicken fingers, they'll only take a few minutes to prepare. Will that work?"
Zoe nodded solemnly. "You are my hero."
"I'll put a rush on your food," the waitress said before walking away.
"Bless you," Zoe said, fighting the urge to kiss the woman. #Quote by R.L. Mathewson

Food quotes by Drew Barrymore
#19. I've been a vegetarian for years and years. I'm not judgemental about others who aren't, I just feel I cannot eat or wear living creatures. #Quote by Drew Barrymore
Food quotes by Pliny The Elder
#20. As for the garden of mint, the very smell of it alone recovers and refreshes our spirits, as the taste stirs up our appetite for meat. #Quote by Pliny The Elder

Food quotes by Renee Carlino
#23. We walked hand in hand toward Adam's apartment building. "You don't seem lawyerly," I said.

"What's lawyerly? Like, douche-y?"

"No, like . . . disciplined. Tightly wound. High-strung. You were roaming the streets in the middle of the night, wearing flip-flops and offering Chinese food to strangers."

"You must not know very many lawyers. Anyway, now I'm roaming the streets in the middle of the night, wearing flip-flops, carrying Chinese food, and holding your hand. I win. And there's nothing more lawyerly than winning. #Quote by Renee Carlino
Food quotes by Jennifer Lee
#24. When a dish really hits a nerve with the American palate, it can really take off across the entire country, facilitated by food vendors' freedom to copy good ideas. #Quote by Jennifer Lee
Food quotes by Seneca
#25. [I]ndulge the body just so far as suffices for good health. It needs to be treated somewhat strictly to prevent it from being disobedient to the spirit. Your food should appease your hunger, your drink quench your thirst, your clothing keep out the cold, your house be a protection against inclement weather. #Quote by Seneca
Food quotes by Nora Roberts
#26. Sex might satisfy, food might fuel, love might sustain, but without coffee, what is the point? #Quote by Nora Roberts
Food quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#27. I hold flesh-food to be unsuited to our species. We err in copying the lower animal world if we are superior to it. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Food quotes by Milly Taiden
#28. That's the first time you picked me over food since you've been pregnant." She raised her brows. "Who said I was picking you over food. I'm picking you and the food. There's a difference. #Quote by Milly Taiden
Food quotes by Guy Laliberte
#29. My first dream was to travel. I was attracted to different places, different colors of skin, different food. When I was 18 in 1977, I went to Europe with my accordion and discovered the pleasure of entertaining people. #Quote by Guy Laliberte
Food quotes by Karen Salmansohn
#30. Every food I choose to eat helps me become more conscious of how it either moves me forward to my fab weight or backward to my flab weight. #Quote by Karen Salmansohn
Food quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#31. The environmentalists say capitalism is killing our oceans, air, land, and forests. Capitalists argue that they provide food, fuel, and building materials for a growing world. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Food quotes by Stephen Colbert
#32. Science attacks our most cherished opinions. Opinions which come straight
from our collective gut. Oh, wait, according to gastroenterologists, the only thing that comes from the gut is waste left from the digestion of food. That's right, "waste." I guess that means that scientists literally think our opinions should be flushed down the toilet! #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Food quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#33. Together with an elderly artist (I regret that I don't remember his name) he occupied a separate room in the barracks. And there Yuri painted for nothing schmaltzy pictures such as Nero's Feast and the Chorus of Elves and the like for the German officers on the commandant's staff. In return, he was given food. The slops for which the POW officers stood in line with their mess tins from 6 a.m. on, while the Ordners beat them with sticks and the cooks with ladles, were not enough to sustain life. At evening, Yuri could see from the windows of their room the one and only picture for which his artistic talent had been given him: the evening mist hovering above a swampy meadow encircled by barbed wire; a multitude of bonfires; and, around the bonfires, beings who had once been Russian officers but had now become beastlike creatures who gnawed the bones of dead horses, who baked patties from potato rinds, who smoked manure and were all swarming with lice. Not all those two-legged creatures had died as yet. Not all of them had yet lost the capacity for intelligible speech, and one could see in the crimson reflections of the bonfires how a belated understanding was dawning on those faces which were descending to the Neanderthal. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Food quotes by Jared Padalecki
#34. I'm a little self-conscious about my body. I love to wear hoodies because you can get cozy and eat some food and your belly doesn't show! #Quote by Jared Padalecki
Food quotes by Rachel Weisz
#35. Every new mother wonders, 'what will I pass on to my child'? Hunger is one inheritance no mother wants to give her child, yet millions of poor women have for generations. Help the World Food Programme break this cycle. No child should inherit hunger. #Quote by Rachel Weisz
Food quotes by Leonard Mlodinow
#36. If someone were to ask about your taste in fine dining and you were to say, "I lean toward food served with vivid adjectives," you'd probably get a pretty strange look; #Quote by Leonard Mlodinow
Food quotes by Cynthia Lynden
#37. untrained dogs and they will urinate over them. Purchase a crate or cage that is big enough for your pup to lie down, turn around, and stand up in. Create a food and potty schedule. It should include: Meal Potty Time Play Time Training Time Sleep in Crate Repeat from A Every Four Hours No matter what, don't leave your poor pup in the crate all the time. At the same time, though, the crate should give it time to relax and nap between potty and play sessions. Walk the dog about 15-30 minutes after every meal. Always praise the dog for going outside. Never ever use hitting or yelling if the dog has an accident in the house. Now, as far as behavior training, you will need to follow a schedule to make sure neither you nor the pup gets too tired or frustrated. That's what we are going to talk about next. #Quote by Cynthia Lynden
Food quotes by Janet Autherine
#38. Good food and good love are cultivated the same way - plant a seed in fertile soil, water it, care for it daily, protect it from negative elements and watch it rise up to nourish your body and soul. #Quote by Janet Autherine
Food quotes by Sylvia Plath
#39. In Plaster

I shall never get out of this! There are two of me now:
This new absolutely white person and the old yellow one,
And the white person is certainly the superior one.
She doesn't need food, she is one of the real saints.

At the beginning I hated her, she had no personality --
She lay in bed with me like a dead body

And I was scared, because she was shaped just the way I was 


Only much whiter and unbreakable and with no complaints.
I couldn't sleep for a week, she was so cold.
I blamed her for everything, but she didn't answer.

I couldn't understand her stupid behavior!

When I hit her she held still, like a true pacifist.

Then I realized what she wanted was for me to love her:
She began to warm up, and I saw her advantages.



Without me, she wouldn't exist, so of course she was grateful.

I gave her a soul, I bloomed out of her as a rose

Blooms out of a vase of not very valuable porcelain,
And it was I who attracted everybody's attention,

Not her whiteness and beauty, as I had at first supposed.

I patronized her a little, and she lapped it up --

You could tell almost at once she had a slave mentality.



I didn't mind her waiting on me, and she adored it.

In the morning she woke me early, reflecting the sun

From her amazingly white torso, and I couldn't help but notice

Her tidiness and her calmness and her #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Food quotes by Robert Orben
#40. Older people shouldn't eat health food, they need all the preservatives they can get. #Quote by Robert Orben
Food quotes by Elizabeth Berg
#41. I like to do things in bed. I fold the laundry on the bed. Food tastes better to me when I'm under the covers. Bed is the only place to read, the best place to talk on the phone. #Quote by Elizabeth Berg
Food quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#42. A man may esteem himself happy when that which is his food is also his medicine. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Food quotes by Brandon Stanton
#43. Being a doctor, lawyer in war-torn countries isn't easy when the infrastructure isn't there. The money, the food and education is not always accessible to achieve those dreams. #Quote by Brandon Stanton
Food quotes by Steven Magee
#44. You would not want to be in a state of malnutrition during a COVID-19 infection. #Quote by Steven Magee
Food quotes by Michael Pollan
#45. [From a typical McDonald's meal] this is how the laboratory measured our meal: soda (100%), milk shake (78%), salad dressing (65%), chicken nuggets (56%), cheeseburger (52%), and French fries (23%). #Quote by Michael Pollan
Food quotes by Dick Van Patten
#46. I may eat nine bowls of dog food, because eight isn't enough. #Quote by Dick Van Patten
Food quotes by Cameron Ahonpaa
#47. When you go outside, you become the food. #Quote by Cameron Ahonpaa
Food quotes by Michelle Rowen
#48. No ... I ... I had this spicy Mexican food last night. It's only a bad case of heartburn. I don't need an exorcism. i need some Pepto-Bismo! #Quote by Michelle Rowen
Food quotes by Tessa Dare
#49. But he hadn't appeared that night. Not the next morning, either. By the time she finally crossed paths with him the following afternoon, his mumbled "Merry Christmas" was the extent of their exchange.
It seemed they were back to silence.
I don't want you.
She tried to ignore the words echoing in her memory. They weren't true, she told herself. She was an expert at deceit; she knew a lie when she heard one.
Still. What else to believe, when he avoided her thus?
Although he rarely spoke to her over the next two days, Sophia frequently overheard him speaking of her. Even these remarks were the tersest of commands: "Fetch Miss Turner more water," or "See that her canopy doesn't go slack." She felt herself being tended, not unlike a goat. Fed, watered, sheltered. Perhaps she shouldn't complain. Food, water, and shelter were all welcome things.
But Sophia was not livestock, and she had other, more profound needs. Needs he seemed intent on neglecting, the infuriating man. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Food quotes by William J. Bernstein
#50. You have to ask yourself, what are the things that matter to you most in your life? If you have to have a latte every day that'snice to have right now, but if you take that latte every day right now, you may wind up eating cat food when you are 70. And you have to decide which is worse. #Quote by William J. Bernstein
Food quotes by Marcus Samuelsson
#51. Cooking with your kids and engaging them in hands-on activities are two ways to begin to educate children about the healthy eating, and kick start the important task to help change how the younger generation looks at food and nutrition. #Quote by Marcus Samuelsson
Food quotes by David Lynch
#53. So much of what happened to me is good fortune. But I would say: Try to get a job that gives you some time; get your sleep and a little bit of food; and work as much as you can. There's so much enjoyment in doing what you love. Maybe this will open doors, and you'll find a way to do what you love. #Quote by David Lynch
Food quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#54. Technological innovation has done great damage ... to eating habits. Food is now available in such unpleasant forms that one frequently finds smoking between courses to be an aid to digestion. #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Food quotes by Marilyn Johnson
#55. Bone grease with dried meat and berries to make pemmican, the energy bars of a thousand years ago, and with a pouch of pemmican, the Native Americans were good to travel far and wide. (If you can't pack portable food, you spend most of your time hunting and foraging). #Quote by Marilyn Johnson
Food quotes by Eric Schlosser
#56. Today the U.S. government can demand the nation-wide recall of defective softball bats, sneakers, stuffed animals, and foam-rubber toy cows. But it cannot order a meatpacking company to remove contaminated, potentially lethal ground beef from fast food kitchens and supermarket shelves. #Quote by Eric Schlosser
Food quotes by Suzanne Whang
#57. Supporting local farmers is important to me, which is not only good for the local economy and better for the environment, there is evidence that eating locally grown food strengthens your immune system. #Quote by Suzanne Whang
Food quotes by Terence McKenna
#58. The creative act is a letting down of the net of human imagination into the ocean of chaos on which we are suspended, and the attempt to bring out of it ideas.
It is the night sea journey, the lone fisherman on a tropical sea with his nets, and you let these nets down - sometimes, something tears through them that leaves them in shreds and you just row for shore, and put your head under your bed and pray.
At other times what slips through are the minutiae, the minnows of this ichthyological metaphor of idea chasing.
But, sometimes, you can actually bring home something that is food, food for the human community that we can sustain ourselves on and go forward. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Food quotes by George Gilder
#59. The fundamental fact in the lives of the poor in most parts of America is that the wages of common labor are far below the benefits of AFDC, Medicaid, food stamps, public housing, public defenders, leisure time and all the other goods and services of the welfare state. #Quote by George Gilder
Food quotes by Tim Allen
#60. Dogs will eat till they die. Cats will leave food in the dish, incomprehensible to a dog. #Quote by Tim Allen
Food quotes by Chelsea Clinton
#61. What's important to recognize is that in the U.S. today, tens of millions of kids start life on a uneven playing field. Imagine having to try to run a race if you started ten yards behind everyone else, hadn't eaten breakfast that morning, or maybe even dinner the night before, had slept in your third homeless shelter that month and didn't have shoes that fit right. Catching up would be really, really hard. With almost 32 million American kids living in low-income families, that means four out of ten runners are starting far back. #Quote by Chelsea Clinton
Food quotes by Carlos Bulosan
#62. We do not take democracy for granted. We feel it grow in our working together - many millions of us working toward a common purpose. If it took us several decades of sacrifice to arrive at this faith, it is because it took us that long to know what part of America is ours.
Our faith has been shaken many times, and now it is put to question. Our faith is a living thing, and it can be crippled or chained. It can be killed by denying us enough food or clothing, by blasting away our personalities and keeping us in constant fear. Unless we are properly prepared the powers of darkness will have good reason to catch us unaware and trample our lives. #Quote by Carlos Bulosan
Food quotes by Cole Alpaugh
#63. The monkey liked most humans. They left food cans outside their homes for his family to rummage through in the morning
sun. Some yelled and threw sticks, but were slow and didn't bite. Humans were mostly harmless. #Quote by Cole Alpaugh
Food quotes by Alton Brown
#64. Cooking is an observation-based process that you can't do if you're so completely focused on a recipe. #Quote by Alton Brown
Food quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#65. The size of the tree you cut determines the weight with which you have to throw the axe. #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Food quotes by Beth Anderson
#66. Everything is just better in California - the wine, the food, fruits and vegetables, the comforts of living. Even the instrumentalists are generous and curious. Everything is wonderful. #Quote by Beth Anderson
Food quotes by Mark McClellan
#67. Food choices affect health outcomes, and consumers need to have the latest, most up-to-date scientific information in making their food choices. #Quote by Mark McClellan
Food quotes by Mark Twain
#68. I prefer milk because I am a Prohibitionist, but I do not go to it for inspiration. #Quote by Mark Twain
Food quotes by George Orwell
#69. We make you pay for the water you drink, for the food you eat, for the wars we need, for the crimes we commit. We make you dedicate the most important part of your life to us, but we give you wages and tell you they allow you to buy stuff and pay for your needs to make us richer. We call this freedom. #Quote by George Orwell
Food quotes by Jacques Chirac
#70. You cannot trust people who have such bad cuisine. It [Great Britain] is the country with the worst food after Finland. #Quote by Jacques Chirac
Food quotes by Rinker Buck
#71. The pioneers and their new Indian partners amply displayed the American penchant for technological prowess, developing shore-to-shore windlasses and flatboat ferries to cross the rivers, innovations as vital to the country's progress as the steam engine and the telegraph. America's default toward massive waste and environmental havoc was also, and hilariously, perfected along the trail. Scammed by the merchants of Independence and St. Joe into overloading their wagons, the pioneers jettisoned thousands of tons of excess gear, food, and even pianos along the ruts, turning vast riverfront regions of the West into America's first and largest Superfund sites. On issue after issue - disease, religious strife, the fierce competition for water - the trail served as an incubator for conflicts that would continue to reverberate through American culture until our own day. #Quote by Rinker Buck
Food quotes by Kal Penn
#72. I was a vegetarian when we shot the first film(Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle), and I generally eat organic as much as possible. I know this is so disappointing to the audience, which is why I don't talk about it a lot, but I don't smoke weed, I don't eat fast food. #Quote by Kal Penn
Food quotes by Bryant McGill
#73. Food is a part of our contract with life. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Food quotes by Jodi Picoult
#74. Is there any place on earth that smells better than a Laundromat? It's like a rainy Sunday when you don't have to get out from under your covers, or like lying back on the grass your father's just mowed--comfort food for your nose. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Food quotes by Jaquelle Crowe Ferris
#75. Jesus was worth it. Jesus was better than safety. Jesus was better than health. Jesus was better than food. Jesus was better than friends... Jesus was so much better than everything. #Quote by Jaquelle Crowe Ferris
Food quotes by Nathan Myhrvold
#76. I've been on a team that won the world championship of barbecue. But barbecue's interesting, because it's one of these cult foods like chili, or bouillabaisse. Various parts of the world will have a cult food that people get enormously attached to - there's tremendous traditions; there's secrecy. #Quote by Nathan Myhrvold
Food quotes by Alistair Cooke
#77. Texas does not, like any other region, simply have indigenous dishes. It proclaims them. It congratulates you, on your arrival, at having escaped from the slop pails of the other 49 states. #Quote by Alistair Cooke
Food quotes by Gary Taubes
#78. Which of us would not be preoccupied with thoughts of food if we were suffering from internal starvation? Hunger is such an awful thing that it is classically cited with pestilence and war as one of our three worst burdens. Add to the physical discomfort the emotional stresses of being fat, the taunts and teasing from the thin, the constant criticism, the accusations of gluttony and lack of "will power," and the constant guilt feelings, and we have reasons enough for the emotional disturbances which preoccupy the psychiatrists. #Quote by Gary Taubes
Food quotes by India Lee
#79. We all miss her, and also, tears of love evaporate into the sky to become unicorn food. #Quote by India Lee
Food quotes by Ernst Engel
#80. The poorer is a family, the greater is the proportion of the total outgo which must be used for food ... The proportion of the outgo used for food, other things being equal, is the best measure of the material standard of living of a population. #Quote by Ernst Engel
Food quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#81. Philadelphia was the smell of the summer sun, of burnt asphalt, of sizzling meat from food carts tucked into street corners, foreign brown men and women hunched inside. Ifemelu would come to like the gyros from those carts, flatbread and lamb and dripping sauces, as she would come to love Philadelphia itself. It did not raise the spectre of intimidation as Manhattan did; it was intimate but not provincial, a city that might yet be kind to you. Ifemelu #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Food quotes by Dhanush
#82. Music is my breath, blood and food - without music I would perish; the actor in me would die. #Quote by Dhanush
Food quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#83. She had come to understand that American parenting was a juggling of anxieties, and that it came with having too much food: a sated belly gave Americans time to worry that their child might have a rare disease that they had just read about, made them think that they had the right to protect their child from disappointment and want and failure. A sated belly gave Americans the luxury of praising themselves for being good parents, as if caring for one's child were the exception rather than the rule. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Food quotes by Kimberly Schlapman
#84. I have so many just precious, fond memories that revolve around food, and that's why I have such a passion for it. #Quote by Kimberly Schlapman
Food quotes by Harper Sloan
#85. After making sure I have everything, I waddle over to the sidewalk, my flip-flops slapping loudly against the pavement. Seeing Sway in the window has me lifting my arm and waving wildly. The second I go to put my arm down, I feel this tremendous pain in my stomach. Sway cocks his head at me, clearly puzzled with my actions. I look down from his eyes and try to figure out what just happened.

Sway bursts through the door to his salon about the same time that I realize that my water just broke. Of all places to have my water break, it's the damn golden sidewalk. I love this sidewalk. Now all I'm going to think about is my pregnancy water leaking out of my vagina.

"Sway! My vagina broke the happiness!" I cry when he runs over. He grabs the food and my purse before helping me walk the few steps left to take me inside Corps Security. "Sway!" I pant. "Are you listening to me? My vagina broke it! #Quote by Harper Sloan
Food quotes by Alan Alda
#86. I love oatmeal. To me, it's not boring. I agree that ordinary oatmeal is very boring, but not the steel-cut Irish kind - the kind that pops in your mouth when you bite into it in little glorious bursts like a sort of gummy champagne. #Quote by Alan Alda
Food quotes by Nicholas Day
#87. While everyone was screaming in italics, the babies themselves seem to have done just fine. Despite their inability to do almost anything on their own, infants are far more flexible than they get credit for: within a few obvious parameters - food, shelter, love - they are astonishingly adaptive. #Quote by Nicholas Day
Food quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#88. I had to do something about my longing, so I got up, went to the kitchen in my nightgown, peeled a pound of potatoes, boiled them up, sliced them, fried them in butter, salted them generously and ate every bite of them - asking my body the whole while if it would please accept the satisfaction of a pound of fried potatoes in lieu of the fulfillment of lovemaking.
My body replied, only after eating every bite of food: No deal, babe. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Food quotes by Mark Schatzker
#89. Can these foods [low-fat, vitamin-enriched, etc] even be called "healthy"? Perhaps we should think about it this way: If you cut a batch of pharmaceutical-grade cocaine with chai, you could say with some degree of honesty that it is "healthier," "less addictive," and "now with chai!" But would you say it's "good for you"? #Quote by Mark Schatzker
Food quotes by Salma Hayek
#90. When I feel stressed, I turn to food for comfort, but I don't like to diet and I'm not good at it. #Quote by Salma Hayek
Food quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#91. We can think of our atmosphere as a budget and our emissions as expenses: because methane and nitrous oxide are significantly larger greenhouse expenses than CO2 in the short term, they are the most urgent to cut. Because they are primarily created by our food choices, they are also easier to cut. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Food quotes by Derek Hough
#92. AN ALKALINE DIET

The pH level measures how acid or alkaline something is. Your blood is slightly alkaline, with a pH between 7.35 and 7.45, and your stomach is very acidic, with a pH of 3.5 or below, so it can break down food. Most of the foods we eat release either an acid or an alkaline base in the blood. Acidified body cells become weak, which can lead to unhealthy conditions and diseases. They are robbed of the oxygen and energy needed to support a strong and healthy immune system.
I incorporate alkaline foods into my diet every day, and I feel like my energy is soaring. Food literally acts like a battery for the body. Every living thing on this planet is made up of energy, and this includes your food. This energy can be measured in megahertz. Chocolate cake only provides 1 to 3 MHz of energy, while raw almonds have 40 to 50 MHz and green vegetables have 70 to 90 MHz. So if you need 70 MHz of energy on a daily basis to function and you live off junk food and soda, you are creating an energy-deficit crisis in your body.
People say it's expensive to eat healthily. Here's how I see it: you're going to pay either way. Either you're going to pay now for the good foods and feel alive and have a clear mind. Or you'll save some money now and pay for medicine and hospital bills later. I used to make excuses: I'm getting older, that's why I feel so tired all the time. But now I know it doesn't have to be that way. You have to make the conscious decision to nour #Quote by Derek Hough
Food quotes by Jodi Picoult
#93. You know, that was what we missed most. Not our beds, not our homes, not even our mothers. We would talk about food. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Food quotes by Holly Lisle
#94. Dan had begun working his way around the room starting at the food wall. "Here's a little wheel to twist" he said, and an instant later, "Genna, it has water in it. Good sweet water. And when you twist the wheel, it stops and starts." And a moment later, "A little room with a privy! But" echoing noises. "Oh," he said, sounding elated, "when you press a handle, water wahses the inside of the privy. You should see this! #Quote by Holly Lisle
Food quotes by Laura Hillenbrand
#95. Seabiscuit took to stomping and bellowing for food day and night. His moans rang off the barn walls and worked on everyone's nerves, but no one gave in. "The whole ranch became centered on the job," Howard said. "Even the pigs quit grunting at him and the chickens kept out of his way. #Quote by Laura Hillenbrand
Food quotes by Jeffery Russell
#96. Cheese, where you takes liquid from a cow lady's business parts, mix it with a bit o' juices from a baby cow's fourth stomach and then let it grow all fuzzy-moldy for a few years, eh? #Quote by Jeffery Russell
Food quotes by H. Jon Benjamin
#97. I need to lose some weight. I'm getting really fat. But I'm getting older, and I just can't stop eating wonderful food. Rich, wonderful food. #Quote by H. Jon Benjamin
Food quotes by Levy Mwanawasa
#98. Simply because my people are hungry, that is no justification to give them poison, to give them genetically modified food that is intrinsically dangerous to their health. #Quote by Levy Mwanawasa
Food quotes by Paige Britt
#99. The steam was thicker than expected and surprisingly easy to scoop up. Inside her mouth it swelled twice its original size and then burst into a series of delicate favors: savory cream sauce, then toasted cheese, and finally vanilla ice cream with a tinge of hazelnut. #Quote by Paige Britt
Food quotes by Bill Bryson
#100. The people are immensely likable - cheerful, extrovert, quick-witted, and unfailingly obliging. Their cities are safe and clean and nearly always built on water. They have a society that is prosperous, well ordered, and instinctively egalitarian. The food is excellent. The beer is cold. The sun nearly always shines. There is coffee on every corner. Life doesn't get much better than this. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Food quotes by Anthony T. Hincks

Food quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#109. Stealing regular stuff was no fun. She wanted a real challenge. Over the last two years, she'd picked the most difficult places to enter. Then she'd snuck in.
And eaten their dinners. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Food quotes by Andy Weir
#110. Everyone would die but me," she said. "They'd all take pills and die. They'll do it right away so they don't use up any food. Commander Lewis picked me to be the survivor. She told me about it yesterday. I don't think NASA knows about it. #Quote by Andy Weir

Food quotes by Emily Franklin
#112. or maybe love is summed up in moments - that day in the park, the time you had chinese food by candlelight, when the boy you liked left a message, finally, on your machine. maybe the telling of those moments is even better than the moments themselves. #Quote by Emily Franklin
Food quotes by Margaret M. Wittenberg

Food quotes by Harper Lee

Food quotes by Jill Shalvis

She stared at it like it was a brick of gold. "I'm on a diet." But she took it. "A see-food diet, apparently. I see food and I eat it. #Quote by Jill Shalvis
Food quotes by Kate Forsyth
#117. Huge tureens of puréed chestnut soup with truffles were carried in and served to each guest, filling the air with a rich earthy small. Then the servants brought in ballotine of pheasant, served with cold lobster in aspic and deep-sea oysters brought up the river by boat that morning. Our own foie gras on tiny rounds of bread was followed by 'margret de canard,' the breast meat of force-fed ducks, roasted with small home-grown pears and Armagnac. There was a white-bean cassoulet with wild hare, a haunch of venison cooked in cinnamon and wine, eel pie, and a salad of leaves and flowers from the garden, dressed in olive oil and lemon. #Quote by Kate Forsyth
Food quotes by Laura Esquivel
#118. Look ma'am, those narcos that mutilate, torture, and kill others are no longer a part of us. They're no longer part of any family or community; they act against everyone. They are worth nothing. But when you bury a narco, you allow him to be a part of you again. He becomes dust, food, our brother once more. His body - dissolved in the earth - now sustains life again, instead of destroying it. #Quote by Laura Esquivel
Food quotes by Jenny Han
#119. Let's not go home yet," I say. "Let's go somewhere."
Peter thinks about it for a minute, tapping his fingers on the steering wheel, and then he says, "I know where we can go."
"Where?"
"Wait and see," he says, and he puts the windows down, and the crisp night air fills the car.
I lean back into my seat. The streets are empty; the lights are off in most of the houses. "Let me guess. We're going to the diner because you want blueberry pancakes."
"Nope."
"Hmm. It's too late to go to Starbucks, and Biscuit Soul Food is closed."
"Hey, food isn't the only thing I think about," he objects. Then: "Are there any cookies left in that Tupperware? #Quote by Jenny Han
Food quotes by Obert Skye
#120. [Clover] secretly hitched a ride with a nice German couple and their new baby ... Clover appeared to the baby, so as to be a delightful, soothing surprise. Well, the child did like Clover. In fact, she held him and cooed. When the parents turned around to look at her and saw their child holding a furry, living creature, they needlessly panicked. #Quote by Obert Skye
Food quotes by Amy E. Spiegel
#121. Single life shouldn't be a diet of junk food, aiming only to please one's lower appetites. It should be a time of preparation, the veggies that earn our dessert. #Quote by Amy E. Spiegel
Food quotes by Thomas Malthus
#122. The prodigious waste of human life occasioned by this perpetual struggle for room and food, was more than supplied by the mighty power of population, acting, in some degree, unshackled, from the constant habit of emigration. #Quote by Thomas Malthus

Food quotes by Jim Gaffigan
#124. That time period is clearly a season of holidays. A holiday season. No matter what faith you belong to or what tradition you follow, everyone is partying. You're shopping, you're cooking, you're getting together with family, you're eating food that's bad for you, you're eating more food that's bad for you, and of course you're eating food that's bad for you. #Quote by Jim Gaffigan
Food quotes by Rajneesh
#125. Encounter every situation with your total consciousness, without any guilt. Enjoy music, enjoy food, enjoy love - enjoy everything that is natural. #Quote by Rajneesh
Food quotes by Margaret Visser
#126. One can never be too rich or too thin' is an aphorism attributed to the Duchess of Windsor. Being both rich and thin is a difficult enterprise, indeed almost unprecedented as an ideal. Into the paradoxical gap between the capacity to spend money and the need to eat less steps a brilliant solution: 'light' food. In buying 'light' food we can pay more for what costs less to produce in the first place ... #Quote by Margaret Visser
Food quotes by Rand Paul
#127. To put everyone in government housing and food stamps and bring them in from around the world I think is a mistake. To give of your own money, I've given to my church. My church has helped people that came from Bosnia. That's a good thing. #Quote by Rand Paul

Food quotes by Lindsay Wagner
#129. As I got older and more educated about things like chemicals in food and how beef is processed, I simply stopped eating certain things because it felt like the right thing to do. #Quote by Lindsay Wagner
Food quotes by Kate Christensen
#130. When I was younger, I read all the great food memoirs, by M.F.K. Fisher and Laurie Colwin and Julia Child and Nicolas Freeling and Ruth Reichl, and felt flooded with a sense of comfort and safety. #Quote by Kate Christensen
Food quotes by Willa Cather
#131. There was a basic harmony between Antonia and her mistress [Mrs. Harling]. They had strong, independent natures, both of them. They knew what they liked, and were not always trying to imitate other people. They loved children and animals and music, and rough play, and digging in the earth. They liked to prepare rich, hearty food and to see people eat it; to make up soft white beds and to see youngsters asleep in them. They ridiculed conceited people and were quick to help unfortunate ones. Deep down in each of them there was a kind of hearty joviality, a relish of life, not over-delicate, but very invigorating. I never tried to define it, but I was distinctly conscious of it. I could not imagine Antonia's living for a week in any other house in Black Hawk than the Harlings. #Quote by Willa Cather
Food quotes by Devdutt Pattanaik
#132. Like animals that seek food for their survival, humans yearn for meaning for their sanity: what is our value, our purpose and our identity in this world? As long as we seek validation from the world around us, we are entrapped by aham. As soon as we realize that all meaning comes from within, that it is we who make the world meaningful, we are liberated by atma. #Quote by Devdutt Pattanaik
Food quotes by Amos Van Der Merwe
#133. However like all little animals, it has to be nurtured and fed. It needs humour, interest, joy, love, compassion and a healthy bit of charity. It loves the unexpected and the unpredictable. It enjoys new challenges and experiences. Good wine makes it jump around a bit, good food makes it happy. Soft light make it dewy-eyed, happy memories light up its eyes. Good champagne is its preferred liquid. #Quote by Amos Van Der Merwe
Food quotes by Geneen Roth
#134. I feel like it's been important for me to use my own personal experiences with food and money to help people to not feel ashamed. I felt so much shame about my own experiences. #Quote by Geneen Roth
Food quotes by Allan Savory
#135. Almost all the knowledge required to produce more food than eroding soil is available today - we just need to use that knowledge within a holistic paradigm - managing agriculture holistically, forming the policies that undergird it holistically. #Quote by Allan Savory
Food quotes by Stacey Ballis
#136. A chilled pea soup of insane simplicity, garnished with creme fraiche and celery leaves. Roasted beet salad with poached pears and goat cheese. Rack of lamb wrapped in crispy prosciutto, served over a celery root and horseradish puree, with sautéed spicy black kale. A thin-as-paper apple galette with fig glaze. Everything turned out brilliantly, including Patrick, who roused himself as I was pulling the lamb from the oven to rest before carving. He disappeared into the bathroom for ten minutes and came out shiny; green pallor and under-eye bags gone like magic. Pink with health and vitality, polished and ridiculously handsome, he looked as if he could run a marathon, and I was gobsmacked. He came up behind me just as I was finishing his port sauce for the lamb with a sprinkle of honey vinegar and a bit of butter, the only changes I made to any of his recipes, finding the sauce without them a bit one-dimensional and in need of edge smoothing. #Quote by Stacey Ballis
Food quotes by Emilie De Ravin
#137. I'm kind of a homebody. I like to sit at home and watch movies and eat good food. #Quote by Emilie De Ravin
Food quotes by Erling Kagge
#138. When you've invested a lot of time in being accessible and keeping up with what's happening, it's easy to conclude that it all has a certain value, even if what you have done might not be important. This is called rationalization. The New York Review of Books labeled the battle between producers of apps "the new opium wars," and the paper claims that "marketers have adopted addiction as an explicit commercial strategy." The only difference is that the pushers aren't peddling a product that can be smoked in a pipe, but rather is ingested via sugar-coated apps.

In a way, silence is the opposition to all of this. It's about getting inside what you are doing. Experiencing rather than overthinking. Allowing each moment to be big enough. Not living through other people and other things. Shutting out the world and fashioning your own silence whenever you run, cook food, have sex, study, chat, work, think of a new idea, read or dance. #Quote by Erling Kagge
Food quotes by John T. Sonne
#139. They needed a date. They had been saying that for months. He would give her a date. He imagined grandiose affairs with fine clothes and elaborate food in luxurious surroundings. A film of her choice or a couple hours in a bookstore would have suited her, and him. This weekend would pass like all the others. Time would steadily work its way past them. Monday would bring another airplane. #Quote by John T. Sonne
Food quotes by Carrie Ann Ryan
#140. They sat down to eat after Honor set the table. He knew she wanted to help in some way, but there was no way he'd let her near the stove. "Stop grinning at me like that," she said after she swallowed her first bite. "Yes, you're an amazing cook, and I love eating your food, but that smile means you're thinking about how I'm not allowed near your stove. It was one time, Jacks. One time." "You burned the pot, Honor. Boiling water. Water, Honor. #Quote by Carrie Ann Ryan
Food quotes by Tommy Wallach

#143. When we eat plants, food takes on a different quality. We take from the earth food that is ready for us and does not fight against us as we take it. #Quote by Peter Singer
Food quotes by George Ellwanger

Food quotes by Mario Batali
#146. Shop often, shop hard, and spend for the best stuff available - logic dictates that you can make delicious food only with delicious ingredients. #Quote by Mario Batali
Food quotes by Paul Cornell
#147. People call love sickness heartache, but that's not where you feel rejection. Your heart only responds to excitement and fear - racing, pounding, skipping beats. You feel rejection in the pit of your stomach. It's like the moment you realise you've eaten bad food, and you know that all you've got to look forward to is a night of twisted torment and twisted sheets. #Quote by Paul Cornell
Food quotes by Cassandra Clare
#148. Emma had been given her own room and so had Julian, but he was hardly ever in it. Drusilla and Octavian were still waking up every night screaming, and Julian had taken to sleeping on the floor of their room, pillow and blanket piled up next to Tavvy's crib. There was no high chair to be had, so Julian sat on the floor opposite the toddler on a food-covered blanket, a plate in one hand and a despairing look on his face. Emma #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Food quotes by Joan Bauer
#149. It's like getting an extraordinary meal after you've been eating junk food for a long time. The taste just sweeps through your sensibilities, bringing all-out contentment, and the sheer goodness of it makes up for every bad meal you ever had. #Quote by Joan Bauer
Food quotes by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Food quotes by Adam Richman
#151. Now you can get artisanal everything - pickles, coffees, house-cured meats, mustard. The pendulum has swung back to this kind of food, and it gives me the greatest hope for the future, especially because we're living in a time with issues like polluted Gulf Coast seafood and food labeled organic that may not really be organic. #Quote by Adam Richman

Food quotes by Nichole Chase
#154. A group of older women walked past, wearing fanny packs and large cameras around their necks.

...

"I think I'm going to get one of those." Weylin's voice was thoughtful as he watched the women jaywalk.

"One of what?" Ree cocked an eyebrow and smiled at her friend.

"I don't know, Wey-mand. I think they might be too much woman for you." Paden flashed a crooked grin.

"Har, har. I meant a fanny pack." Looking thoughtful, Weylin ignored thier expressions of disbelief.

"A...fanny pack?" Sophie was looking at Weylin as if he had lost his mind, but Ree noticed the corners of her mouth twitching.

"Yeah. Think about all the cool things I could carry in one." Completely unperturbed, Weylin stopped at the crosswalk and hit the button on the light post. "I could carry knives and some of those collapsible swords that Roland uses. Oh and snacks!"

Unable to control her laughter anymore, Ree leaned over and clutched her sides. "Snacks? Weylin, I think you might need to lie down. You obviously have a fever or something."

"You won't be saying that the next time we're out and you get a hankering for a pizza or some popcorn. I could even carry bottled water and little sanitizer wipes."

"How big of a fanny pack are you planning on getting? Paden raised an eyebrow.

...

Food quotes by Shane Claiborne
#164. For the church as we know it is a tragically dysfunctional family, in which some children are starving while others have food stashed in their closets. Some of us are living on the street while others have empty rooms in our homes. And, of course, there are all sorts of things being done that bring great dishonor and embarrassment to the family name. #Quote by Shane Claiborne

Food quotes by Takeru Kobayashi

Food quotes by Leonard Peltier
#171. At this writing I can't even shut my lower jaw because of inadequate health care. I can't chew my food, I have trouble walking ... the list goes on. But more than anything I want to go home. If you follow the laws at the time of my conviction I should have been released already. #Quote by Leonard Peltier
Food quotes by Yasmine Bleeth

Food quotes by Ree Drummond
#173. In the meantime, I tried my best to acclimate to my new life in the middle of nowhere. I had to get used to the fact that I lived twenty miles from the nearest grocery store. That I couldn't just run next door when I ran out of eggs. That there was no such thing as sushi. Not that it would matter, anyway. No cowboy on the ranch would touch it. That's bait, they'd say, laughing at any city person who would convince themselves that such a food was tasty. #Quote by Ree Drummond
Food quotes by Anthony Burgess
#174. Every grain of experience is food for the greedy growing soul of the artist. #Quote by Anthony Burgess
Food quotes by Kristen Ashley
#175. But that light that shone in Mitch's eyes told me he loved it more. Not because he liked roller coasters and crappy food.

No, because he liked to see us happy, he liked to make us that way and he didn't mind us knowing it.

From the beginning, he'd demonstrated generosity, selflessness and protectiveness, but there was something beautiful about sensing his contentment grow as the hours passed and he got more out of giving something to us than we got out of having it.

I knew before that Mitch would make a great dad.

But I knew right then that he'd build a beautiful family. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Food quotes by Jamie Oliver
#176. Just because the Americans are so good at rattling out accessible and cheap junk food, nobody looks twice when it comes to their food. But there are golden nuggets everywhere. #Quote by Jamie Oliver
Food quotes by Rick Bass
#177. Buried him next to my cabin door, in that sunken, blissful spot where he had napped, always waiting for the next hunt: beneath the wild rose bushes. I buried him, as I had Ann, with bones and antlers and venison and dog food and a wreath of cedar and lupine. I buried him with shells, both 12- and 20-gauge, for whenever we went hunting again, and I put in extras because I knew I'd miss some shots. The bones and wings of his quarry. A whistle, a brass bell. Then the earth back in over him, and new grief in over old grief, like a mountain eroding to bury with its disintegrating sediments, disintegrating heart and body, something bright and valuable below. #Quote by Rick Bass
Food quotes by G.S. Johnston

Food quotes by Kevin Hearne
#181. Drug addicts perplex me. They're a relatively recent development, historically speaking. Everyone has their theories - monotheists like to blame it on godlessness - but I think it was a plague that developed in the sooty petticoats of the Industrial Revolution and its concomitant division of labor. Once people specialized their labors and separated themselves from food production and the daily needs of basic survival, there was a hollow place in their lives that they did not know how to fill. #Quote by Kevin Hearne
Food quotes by Sri Chinmoy
#182. The meditation that gives you immediate joy or continuous joy is the best meditation for you. Everyone will not have the same meditation. Your meditation will not suit me, my meditation will not suit you. You like a certain food, I don't like it. You are right in your own way I am right in my own way. But once you know what your best meditation is, please stick to it. #Quote by Sri Chinmoy
Food quotes by Kristin Cashore
#183. And she would protect him as fiercely, if it were ever his need- if a fight ever became too much for him or if he needed shelter, or food, or a fire in the rain. Or anything she could provide. She would protect him from anything. #Quote by Kristin Cashore
Food quotes by Angela Panayotopulos
#184. Hell and Heaven are states of being, not destinations. They are worlds we carry within. Don't expect to find angels and demons -- not in the way you've envisioned them. As God is called Allah, so Man is called Monster. Don't be fooled by titles. Call a skunk a rose and it will continue to reek.

Hydras do not crawl out from between the weatherworn pages of fairytale anthologies. On the contrary, they ride the subway and order food at the local drive-through and enjoy stolen kisses at the cinema. Only one head is visible to the naked eye. They tend to avoid reflective surfaces.

Each head is a sin: each belch of fire is a sin put to action. But you should know that the shadows differ. There may be seven heads, or three, or one. Those with one head are particularly tricky. Who's to say if they're human or hydra? You'd have to kiss them, bite them. You would know them by their mouth. The name of their sin is tattooed on the inside of their bottom lip, so they can lick and taste its sweetness. #Quote by Angela Panayotopulos

#185. Where your food comes from is as important as how you smoke it. #Quote by Steven Raichlen
Food quotes by Marion Nestle
#186. I would require every producer of food to follow and have enforced a standard safety plan. We know how to produce safe food. It has a horrible name; it's called HACCP - Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point - and this was a food safety system that was developed for NASA so that astronauts wouldn't get sick in outer space. If you just think about what it might be like to have food poison under conditions of zero gravity, you don't even want to think about it. #Quote by Marion Nestle

Yes, it did. Any pun related to a weapon's destructive capabilities or final disposition of a victim's body is a Schwarzenegger pun, by definition. That's negative twenty sausages according to the sanctions outlined in Section Four, Paragraph Two.
My hound whined. No! Not twenty sausages! Twenty succulent sausages I'll never snarf? You can't do that - it's cruelty to animals!
You can't argue with this. Your pawprint is on the treaty, and you agreed that Schwarzenegger puns are heinous abominations of language that deserve food-related punishments for purposes of correction and deterrence.
Auggh! I still say it's your fault for renting Commando in the first place! You started it! #Quote by Kevin Hearne

Food quotes by Colin M. Turnbull
#189. The forest is a father and a mother to us," he said, "and like a father or mother it gives us everything we need - food, clothing, shelter, warmth … and affection. #Quote by Colin M. Turnbull
Food quotes by Jalina Mhyana
#190. I cut our paper dinner with a pair of scissors borrowed from the front desk of the hotel. I cooked with a spice rack box of crayons – sixteen colors. I seasoned the pumpkin pie with orange crayon, and basted the turkey's crisp skin in brown. I was remorseless with my sketchbook abattoir, playing the part of carnivore just as surely as I was play-acting the role of wife. I may as well have been a wax figure in a dollhouse eating the wax-scented food. #Quote by Jalina Mhyana
Food quotes by Durga Chew-Bose
#191. What tethers me to my parents is the unspoken dialogue we share about how much of my character is built on the connection I feel to the world they were raised in but that I've only experienced through photos, visits, food. It's not mine and yet, I get it. First-generation kids, I've always thought, are the personification of déjà vu. #Quote by Durga Chew-Bose
Food quotes by Suzy Becker
#192. Eat when you're hungry. When you're not hungry, play with your food. #Quote by Suzy Becker
Food quotes by Desi Arnaz
#193. The Spanish and Cuban people have the same kind of wakes the Irish do. They go on for two or three days and drink a lot of booze and eat a lot of food. #Quote by Desi Arnaz
Food quotes by Alice Walker
#194. (a womanist)
3. Loves music. Loves dance. Loves the moon. Loves the Spirit. Loves love and food and roundness. Loves struggle. Loves the Folk. Loves herself. Regardless. #Quote by Alice Walker
Food quotes by Chloe Neill
#195. Catcher pulled out his phone,rose,and walked away from the table to make the call.
"I'm going to advise Chuck of our little breakthrough. Good job, Mallocake."
We all looked at Mallory.
"Did he just call you Mallocake ?"
She blushed to the roots of her blue hair, shrugged one shoulder.
"It's a nickname"
It was also my all-time favorite snack food- a log-shaped chocolate cake with a marshmallow center. They were absolutely delectable. And that was kind of adorable, especially for someone like Catcher, who made Eeyore seem like an optimist. #Quote by Chloe Neill
Food quotes by Paul Celan
#196. Your hair waves once more when I weep. With the blue of your eyes
you lay the table of love: a bed between summer and autumn.
We drink what somebody brewed, neither I nor you nor a third:
we lap up some empty and last thing.

We watch ourselves in the deep sea's mirrors and faster pass food to the other:
the night is the night, it begins with the morning,
beside you it lays me down.

("The Years From You To Me") #Quote by Paul Celan
Food quotes by Amy Reed
#197. This place has its own mini version of a cafeteria, complete with a couple of old ladies in hairnets dishing out tasteless gruel from behind a counter. The food looks like it's been sitting out for days, and there's always a weird smell like floor wax and soggy vegetables. #Quote by Amy Reed
Food quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#198. All "months" work together for the good of those who love the Lord! ... all the days of this month will work together for your goodness! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Food quotes by Ron Rash
#199. She realized that being starved for words was the same as being starved for food, because both left a hollow place inside you, a place you needed filled to make it through another day. Rachel remembered how growing up she'd thought living on a farm with just a father was as lonely as you could be. (130) #Quote by Ron Rash
Food quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#200. (Happiness smelled like Park's house. Like Skin So Soft and all four food groups.) #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
