Erst kommt das Fressen, dann kommt die Moral. Food comes first, then morals.
Food probably has a very great influence on the condition of men. Wine exercises a more visible influence, Food does it more slowly but perhaps just as surely. Who knows if a well-prepared soup was not responsible for the pneumatic pump or a poor one for a war?Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
He looked about as inconspicuous as a tarantula on a slice of angel Food.Raymond Chandler
No man will be a sailor who has contrivance enough to get himself into jail; for being in a ship is being in a jail, with the chance of being drowned? A man in a jail has moreroom, better Food, and commonly bettercompany.

More people have probably died from eating dodgy Chinese Food than contracting some form of avian flu. The last thing we want is for the Daleks from Defra to start suggesting that they want to exterminate wildlife—as is their normal response when confronted with such a problem.

Only a miracle or a disaster could restore it.William S. Burroughs

Love: A temporary insanity curable by marriage or by removal of the patient from the influences under which he incurred the disorder. This disease is prevalent only among civilized races living under artificial conditions; barbarous nations breathing pure air and eating simple Food enjoy immunity from its ravages. It is sometimes fatal, but more frequently to the physician than to the patient.
A good aphorism is too hard for the teeth of time and is not eaten up by all the centuries, even though it serves as Food for every age: hence it is the greatest paradox in literature, the imperishable in the midst of change, the nourishment which like salt is always prized, but which never loses its savor as salt does.
Pleas'd to the last he crops the flowery Food, And licks the hand just rais'd to shed his blood.Alexander Pope
If beings knew, as I know, the results of sharing gifts, they would not enjoy their gifts without sharing them with others, nor would the taint of stinginess obsess the heart and stay there. Even if it were their last and final bit of Food, they would not enjoy its use without sharing it, if there were anyone to receive it.
