FEASTING
[ Also see Diet Gluttony ]

Of all appeals,--although
  I grant the power of pathos, and of gold,
    Of beauty, flattery, threats, a shilling,--no
      Methods more sure at moments to take hold,
        Of the best feelings of mankind, which grow
          More tender, as we every day behold,
            Than that all-softening, overpow'ring knell,
              The tocsin of the soul--the Dinner Bell.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

But 't was 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),
        Don Juan (canto XVI)

The turnpike road to people's hearts, I find,
  Lies through their mouths or I mistake mankind.
      - Peter Pindar (pseudonym of Dr. John Wolcot) (Wolcott)

The feast of reason and the flow of soul.
      - Alexander Pope

The latter end of a fray, and the beginning of a feast,
  Fits a dull fighter, and a keen guest.
      - William Shakespeare
