Words of Wisdom Inspired by Food

Now that the Chinese New Year festivities have ended, some of us may experience a tinge of guilt from the amount of eating that has taken place. After the 2018 Christmas season, there was the 2019 New Year celebrations, following by CNY 2019 and Valentine’s Day. There has been too many occasions (and excuses) to eat. In the course of writing our stories we have come across quite a few quotes that remind us of the happy side of eating. We have compiled some of them for your reading pleasure. We hope these food quotes will provide words of encouragement or entertainment as we continue the struggle of eating without guilt (or gaining weight).

Quote - Ralph Waldo Emerson
What satisfies hunger is good food.
