Dine In, Dine Out

CF Payne

"Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast."

- William Shakespeare


Ricardo Martinez

"Shared dining fortifies us."

- Deng Ming-Dao


Leonard Peng

"Take time enough for your meals, and eat them in company whenever you can. There is no need for hurry in life-least of all when we are eating."

- Edward Everett


David Johnson

"There is a difference between dining and eating. Dining is an art. When you eat to get the most out of your meal, to please the palate, just as well as to satiate the appetite, that, my friend, is dining."

- Yuan Mei


Maria Corte Maidagan

"Food is one part of the experience. And it has to be somewhere between 50 to 60 percent of the dining experience. But the rest counts as well: The mood, the atmosphere, the music, the feeling, the design, the harmony between what you have on the plate and what surrounds the plate."

- Alain Ducasse


Tim Bower

"There is no sincerer love than the love of food."

- George Bernard Shaw


Michal Lisowski

"Dining should be something that isn't always taken extremely seriously."

- Graham Elliot


Rudy Gutierrez

"One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well."

- Virginia Woolf


Douglas Smith

"Food is our common ground, a universal experience."

- James Beard


Jack Daly

"To eat well, I always disagree with critics who say that all restaurants should be fine dining. You can get a Michelin star if you serve the best hamburger in the world."

- David Chang


James Bennett

"After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relatives."

- Oscar Wilde


Goni Montes

"Dinner is not what you do in the evening before something else. Dinner is the evening."

- Art Buchwald


Piotr Jablonski

"A good conscience is a continual feast."

- Robert Burton


Gary Kelley

"All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind."

- Khalil Gibran


Gregory Manchess

"First we eat, then we do everything else."

- M.F.K Fisher


Michal Dziekan

"Everything I eat has been proved by some doctor or other to be a deadly poison, and everything I don't eat has been proved to be indispensable for life. But I go marching on."

- George Bernard Shaw


Bill Sanderson

"Our happiness depends on the habit of mind we cultivate. So practice happy thinking every day. Cultivate the merry heart, develop the happiness habit, and life will become a continual feast."

- Norman Vincent Peale


Mark Elliot

"Edible, adj.: Good to eat, and wholesome to digest, as a worm to a toad, a toad to a snake, a snake to a pig, a pig to a man, and a man to a worm."

- Ambrose Bierce


Chris Gall

"My weaknesses have always been food and men - in that order."

- Dolly Parton


Paul Cox

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend."

- Melody Beattie


Oscar Ramos

"I’ve long believed that good food, good eating, is all about risk..."

- Anthony Bourdain


Thomas Ehretsmann

"A lot of people don't have much food on their table. But they got a lot of forks 'n knives. And they got to cut somethin'."

- Bob Dylan
