DINNER
[ Also see Appetite Breakfast Cooking Diet Dining Eating ]

He fell upon whate'er was offer'd, like
  A priest, a shark, an alderman, or pike.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

The tocsin of the soul--the dinner bell!
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

'Twas a public feast and public day--
  Quite full, right dull, guests hot, and dishes cold,
    Great plenty, much formality, small cheer.
      And everybody out of their own sphere.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

When dinner has oppress'd one,
  I think it is perhaps the gloomiest hour
    Which turns up out of the sad twenty-four.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

A good dinner sharpens wit, while it softens the heart.
      - John Doran

Before dinner men meet with great inequality of understanding; and those who are conscious of their inferiority have the modesty not to talk; when they have drunk wine, every man feels himself happy, and loses that modesty, and grows impudent and vociferous; but he is not improved; he is only not sensible of his defects.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

This was a good dinner enough, to be sure; but it was not a dinner to ask a man to.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Dinner was made for eating, not for talking.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one's own relations.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

Their various cares in one great point combine
  The business of their lives, that is--to dine.
      - Edward Young
