DIET
[ Also see Appetite Bread Cooking Dinner Eating Fasting Feasting Gluttony ]

Food, improperly taken, not only produces original diseases, but affords those that are already engendered both matter and sustenance; so that, let the father of disease be what it may. Intemperance is certainly its mother.
      - Robert Burton

Give me a dozen such heartbreaks, if that would help me lose a couple of pounds.
      - Sidonie Gabrielle Colette

A chine of honest bacon would please my appetite more than all the marrow-puddings, for I like them better plain, having a very vulgar stomach.
      - John Dryden

One meal a day is enough for a lion, and it ought to suffice for a man.
      - George Fordyce

The chief pleasure (in eating) does not consist in costly seasoning or exquisite flavor, but in yourself. Do you seek for sauce by sweating.
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus)

Many dishes bring many diseases.
      - Pliny the Elder (Caius Plinius Secundus)

Simple diet is best.
      - Pliny the Elder (Caius Plinius Secundus)

If thou wouldst preserve a sound body, use fasting and walking; if a healthful soul, fasting and praying; walking exercises the body, praying exercises the soul, fasting cleanses both.
      - Francis Quarles

Unquiet meals make ill digestion.
      - William Shakespeare

Your worm is your only emperor for diet; we fat all creatures else to fat us, and we fat ourselves for maggots.
      - William Shakespeare

A fig for your bill of fare; show me your bill of company.
      - Jonathan Swift

All courageous animals are carnivorous, and greater courage is to be expected in a people, such as the English, whose food is strong and hearty, than in the half starved commonalty of other countries.
      - Sir William Temple

It was Dean Swift who ignored the bill of fare, and asked for a bill of the company.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis
