The person who decides what shall be the food and drink

The person who decides what shall be the food and drink of a family, and the modes of its preparation, is the one who decides, to a greater or less extent, what shall be the health of that family.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
There’s a hidden sweetness in the stomach’s emptiness. We are lutes, no more, no less. If the soundbox is stuffed full of anything, no music…. When you’re full of food and drink, Satan sits where your spirit should.
I think one of the things you and I have to learn is that we have to live without the consolation of belonging to a Church…. Of one thing I am certain. The religion of the future will have to be extremely ascetic, and by that I don’t mean just going without food and drink.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
True happiness is impossible without solitude…. I need solitude in my life as I need food and drink and the laughter of little children. Extravagant though it may sound, solitude is the filter of my soul. It nourishes me, and rejuvenates me. Left alone, I discovered that I keep myself good company.
Sophia Loren

When you’re seeking after bodily pleasure of food and drink for example, this is going to prevent you from doing what you should be doing which is contemplating.
Peter Adamson
I eat very clean foods, healthy foods and drink a lot of water.
Jonathan Horton
Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what’s for lunch.
Orson Welles
Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the ‘Titanic’ who waved off the dessert cart.
Erma Bombeck
We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink.
Prose and poetry are as different as food and drink.
Franz Grillparzer
All sorrows are less with bread.
Miguel de Cervantes
It is a tragedy that religion for us means, today, nothing more than restrictions on food and drink, nothing more than adherence to absence of superiority and inferiority.
Mahatma Gandhi
For what can power give more than food and drink, To live at ease, and not be bound to think?
John Dryden
The greatest delight the fields and woods minister is the suggestion of an occult relation between man and the vegetable. I am not alone and unacknowledged. They nod to me and I to them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
There is nothing to which men, while they have food and drink, cannot reconcile themselves.
George Santayana
…words have been all my life, all my life–this need is like the Spider’s need who carries before her a huge Burden of Silk which she must spin out–the silk is her life, her home, her safety–her food and drink too–and if it is attacked or pulled down, why, what can she do but make more, spin afresh, design anew….
