M.F.K. Fisher

Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly.

Probably one of the most private things in the world is an egg before it is broken.

Wine and cheese are ageless companions, like aspirin and aches, or June and moon, or good people and noble ventures.

There is a communion of more than our bodies when bread is broken and wine drunk.

War is a beastly business, it is true, but one proof we are human is our ability to learn, even from it, how better to exist.

- M.F.K. Fisher
