Rudeness is a sauce to his good wit, Which gives men stomach to digest his words, With better appetite.
'Tis not the meat; but 'tis the appetite Makes eating a delight.Sir John Suckling
I take it to be axiomatic that people are revolted by witnessing the shameless gratification of an appetite they do not share.Quentin Crisp
The nineteenth century will colonize; so, in its fantasies, did the nineteenth century soul. When Emma [Bovary] turns spendthrift and buys curtains, carpets and hangings from the draper, the information takes on something from the theme of the novel itself: the material is a symbol of the exotic, and the exotic feeds the Romantic appetite. It will lead to satiety, bankruptcy and eventually to nihilism and the final drive towards death and nothingness.v. s pritchett
I usually work in a direction until I know how to do it, then I stop. At the time that I am bored or understand — I use those words interchangeably — another appetite has formed.Robert Rauschenberg
I have a healthy appetite for solitude. If you don't, you have no business being a writer.will self
Desire , to know why, and how, CURIOSITY; such as is in no living creature but Man ; so that Man is distinguished, not only by his Reason; but also by this singular Passion from other Animals ; in whom the appetite of food, and other pleasures of Sense, by predominance, take away the care of knowing causes; which is a Lust of the mind, that by a perseverance of delight in the continual and indefatigable generation of Knowledge, exceedeth the short vehemence of any carnal Pleasure.thomas hobbes
In regard to propaganda the early advocates of universal literacy and a free press envisaged only two possibilities: the propaganda might be true, or it might be false. They did not foresee what in fact has happened, above all in our Western capitalist democracies the development of a vast mass communications industry, concerned in the main neither with the true nor the false, but with the unreal, the more or less totally irrelevant. In a word, they failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distraction.aldous huxley
Barring love and war, few enterprises are undertaken with such abandon, or by such diverse individuals, or with so paradoxical a mixture of appetite and altruism, as that group of avocations known as outdoor recreation. It is, by common consent, a good thing for people to get back to nature. But wherein lies the goodness, and what can be done to encourage its pursuit?aldo leopold
After any disturbance (such as two world wars coinciding with a period of growing economic and monetary incomprehensibility) we find our old concepts inadequate and look for new ones. But it unfortunately happens that the troubled times which produce an appetite for new ideas are the least propitious for clear thinking.rebecca west
Sinful and forbidden pleasures are like poisoned bread:;; they may satisfy appetite for the moment, but there is death in them at the end.
A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.leo tolstoy
How frighteningly few are the persons whose death would spoil our appetite and make the world seem empty.
Who riseth from a feast With that keen appetite that he sits down?william shakespeare
Doth not the appetite alter? A man loves the meat in his youth, that he cannot endure in his age.william shakespeare
The sweetest honey Is loathsome in his own deliciousness, And in the taste confounds the appetite.william shakespeare
Each tree Laden with fairest fruit, that hung to th' eye Tempting, stirr'd in me sudden appetite To pluck and eat.john milton
Epicurean cooks sharpen with cloyless sauce his appetite.william shakespeare
It is saying less than the truth to affirm that an excellent book (and the remark holds almost equally good of a Raphael as of a Milton) is like a well-chosen and well-tended fruit tree. Its fruits are not of one season only. With the due and natural intervals, we may recur to it year after year, and it will supply the same nourishment and the same gratification, if only we ourselves return to it with the same healthful appetite.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Epicurean cooks Sharpen with cloyless sauce his appetite.
Existence is appetite: the gnaw of being; the one attempt of all things to assimilate to some higher attempt.charles fort
An Unsatisfied appetite for Knowledge Means Progress and Is the State of a Normal Minddavid o. mckay
For appetite with an opinion of attaining, is called HOPE. The same, without such opinion, DESPAIRE.thomas hobbes
appetite comes with eating, says Angeston. But the thirst goes away with drinking.françois rabelais
