|I have no doubt that it is a part of the destiny of the human race, in its gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals, as surely as the savage tribes have left off eating each other when they came in contact with the more civilized.
– Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
|If you told me that I would live one year longer if I ate only broccoli or asparagus or whatever . . . I’d rather eat what I like and enjoy eating what I like than eat something I don’t and live another year. And I do think that choice should be mine. Maybe sugar is harmful and maybe you’d encourage the government to ban sugar … But I think Coca-Cola has been a very positive factor in the country and the world. And I really don’t want anyone telling me I can’t drink it. I think there’s something in longevity of feeling happy about your life.
– Warren Buffett
|I don’t like food that’s too carefully arranged; it makes me think that the chef is spending too much time arranging and not enough time cooking. If I wanted a picture I’d buy a painting.
– Andy Rooney (1919-2011)
