No clock is more regular than the belly.
      - Francois Rabelais

Hungry bellies have no ears.
  [Fr., La ventre affame n'point d'oreilles.]
      - Francois Rabelais, Pantagruel
         (bk. III, ch. XV)

Undoubtedly the desire for food has been, and still is, one of the main causes of great political events.
      - Bertrand Arthur William Russell

A hungry people listens not to reason, not cares for justice, nor is bent by any prayers.
  [Lat., Nec rationem patitur, nec aequitate mitigatur nec ulla prece flectitur, populus esuriens.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca),
        De Brevitate Vitoe (XVIII)

They said they were anhungry; sighed forth proverbs--
  That hunger broke stone walls, that dogs must eat,
    That meat was made for mouths, that the gods sent not
      Corn for the rich men only. With these shreds
        They vented their complainings, which being answered
          And a petition granted them, a strange one,
            To break the heart of generosity,
              And make bold power look pale, they threw their caps
                As they would hang them on the horns o' th' moon,
                  Shouting their emulation.
      - William Shakespeare, Coriolanus
         (Marcius at I, i)

Come, our stomachs
  Will make what's homely savory.
      - William Shakespeare, Cymbeline
         (Belarius at III, vi)

Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look.
      - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
         (Julius Caesar at I, ii)

With this there grows
  In my most ill-compos'd affection such
    A stanchless avarice that, were I King,
      I should cut off the nobles for their lands,
        Desire his jewels, and this other's house,
          And my more-having would be as a sauce
            To make me hunger more, that I should forge
              Quarrels unjust against the good and loyal,
                Destroying them for wealth.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Malcolm at IV, iii)

I can't talk religion to a man with bodily hunger in his eyes.
      - George Bernard Shaw, Major Barbara

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
      - Mother Teresa,
        in a speech at the Awakening Conference in Colorado

Cruel as death, and hungry at the grave.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Winter
         (l. 393)

A hungry dog hunts best.
      - Lee Trevino

Hunger that persuades to evil.
  [Lat., Malesuada fames.]
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil),
        The Aeneid (VI, 276)

Starvation, not sin, is the parent of modern crime.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

Hunger does not breed reform; it breeds madness, and all the ugly distempers that make an ordered life impossible.
      - Thomas Woodrow Wilson

Hunger is the mother of impatience and anger.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
