Dinner Quotes




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

                                                                                                            -OSCAR WILDE




He may live without books, --What is knowledge but grieving ?

He may live without hope,--What is hope but deceiving ?

He may live without love,--What is passion but pining ?

But where is the man that can live without dining ?

                                                                                  -OWEN MEREDITH, Lucile, I


As the Texas darky said: "Dinner-time for some folks;

but just twelve O'clock for me !"
                                                                           
                                                                                   -IRVIN S. COBB,Paths of Glory

Quotes on GREATNESS

    For neither praise  nor pelf;

Content to know and be unknown;

  Whole in himself.
