Twelfth Night, said by Orsino, Act I, scene I.
When poets — write about Food it is usually celebratory. Food as the thing-in-itself, but also the thoughtful preparation of meals, the serving of meals, meals communally shared: a sense of the sacred in the profane.joyce carol oates
Food for powder, Food for powder; they’ll fill a pit, as well as better.

Minnesota is a state of public-spirited and polite people, where you can get a good cappucino and eat Thai Food and find any book you want and yet live on a quiet tree-lined street with a backyard and send your kids to public school.

In his anti-Darwinian book... (and eponymously named The Neck of the Giraffe ), Francis Hitching tells the story... "The need to survive by reaching ever higher for Food is, like so many Darwinian explanations of its kind, little more than a post hoc speculation." Hitching is quite correct, but he rebuts a fairy story that Darwin was far too smart to tell - even though the tale later entered our high school texts as a "classic case" nonetheless.stephen jay gould
This Food-and-shelter theory concerning man's efforts is without insight. Our most persistent and spectacular efforts are concerned not with the preservation of what we are but with the building up of an imaginary conception of ourselves in the opinion of others. The desire for praise is more imperative than the desire for Food and shelter.Eric Hoffer
To the well-fed it seems cowardly to complain of tight boots, because the well-fed live in a different world-a world where, if your boots are tight, you can change them; their minds are not warped by petty discomfort. But below a certain income the petty crowds the large out of existence; one's preoccupation is not with art or religion , but with bad Food , hard beds, drudgery and the sack. Serenity is impossible to a poor man in a cold country and even his active thoughts will go in more or less sterile complaint.george orwell
He tires betimes that spurs too fast betimes; With eager feeding Food doth choke the feeder.william shakespeare

When no Food is given to the ear, Then let a little be given to the stomach.
The body of Benjamin Franklin, Printer, (Like the cover of an old book, its contents torn out and stript of its lettering and gilding), Lies here, Food for worms; But the work shall not be lost, for it will (as he believed) appear once more in a new and more elegant edition, revised and corrected by the author.
The philosophic spirit of inquiry may be traced to brute curiosity, and that to the habit of examining all things in search of Food. Artistic genius is an expansion of monkey imitativeness.william winwood reade
The problem is when that fun stuff becomes the habit . And I think that's what's happened in our culture . Fast Food has become the everyday meal.
