The other night I ate at a real nice family restaurant. Every table had an argument going.
He was the kind of man who kept a diagram showing where you sat when you dined with him and what you ate, lest he serve you the same dish when you came again.alexander woollcott
They dined on mince, and slices of quince , Which they ate with a runcible spoon; And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, They danced by the light of the moon.
What is patriotism but love of the good things we ate in our childhood? I have said elsewhere that the loyalty to Uncle Sam is the loyalty to doughnuts and ham and sweet potatoes and the loyalty to the German Vaterland is the loyalty to Pfannkuchen and Christmas Stollen. As for international understanding, I feel that macaroni has done more for our appreciation of Italy than Mussolini... in food, as in death, we feel the essential brotherhood of mankind.lin yutang
The trenchant blade, Toledo trusty, For want of fighting was grown rusty, And ate into itself, for lack Of somebody to hew and hack.Samuel Butler

The trenchant blade Toledo trusty, For want of fighting was grown rusty, And ate into itself for lack Of somebody to hew and hack.Samuel Butler

Her rash hand in evil hour Forth reaching to the fruit, she plucked, she ate: Earth felt the wound, and nature from her seat Sighing through all her works gave signs of woe, That all was lost.john milton
A census taker once tried to test me, I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.Ted Tally
I can remember what I ate. Coconut squares dipped in chocolate, wrapped in gold paper.fenella fielding
Having seen how many follow and have followed false religions, and having our reason utterly against many of the principal points of the Bible, we require the most perfect evidence of facts, before we can believe. If you can prove to me that one miracle took place, I will believe that he is a just God who damned us all because a woman ate an apple; and you can't expect greater complaisance than that to be sure.Edward Fitzgerald
For wine, they drank the ocean – for bread, they ate their own despairs; counsel from the moon was theirs – for the foolish contention - Murder is not a pretty thing – yet seas do raucous everything to make it pretty – for the foolish or the brave, a way seas have.marsden hartley
And the priests looked down into the pit of injustice and they turned away their faces and said Our kingdom is not as the kingdom of this world Our life on earth is but a pilgrimage The soul lives on humility and patience at the same time screwing from the poor their last centime They settled down among their treasures and ate and drank with princes and to the starving they said Suffer Suffer as he suffered on the cross for it is the will of Godpeter weiss
Rats! They fought the dogs and killed the cats, And bit the babies in the cradles, And ate the cheeses out of the vats, And licked the soup from the cooks' own ladles, Split open the kegs of salted sprats, Made nests inside men's Sunday hats, And even spoiled the women's chats By drowning their speaking With shrieking and squeaking In fifty different sharps and flats.Robert Browning
Late in the winter of my seventeenth year, my mother decided I was depressed, presumably because I rarely left the house, spent quite a lot of time in bed, read the same book over and over, ate infrequently, and devoted quite a bit of my abundant free time to thinking about death.john green
The service was of great array, That they were served with that day. Thus they ate, and made them glad, With such service as they had When they had dined, as I you say, Lordis and ladies yede to play; Some to tables and some to chess, With other games more and less.
'Tis not her coldness, Father, that chills my labouring breast. It's that confounded cucumber I've ate and can't digest.
As soon as Eve ate the apple of wisdom, she reached for the fig leaf.Judson K. Cornelius
The world knows that to quell the belly-fire, I ate crumbs and morsels given by men of caste , high-caste, low-caste or no cast.
