"Indeed, when I am in really great trouble, as any one who knows me intimately will tell you, I refuse everything except food and drink." ~ The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde "After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one's own relations." ~ A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde "Kissing don't last: cookery do!" ~ The Ordeal of Richard Feverel by George Meredith "I like breakfast-time better than any other moment in the day," said Mr. Irwine. "No dust has settled on one's mind then, and it presents a clear mirror to the rays of things." ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot One can say everything best over a meal. ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot People who love downy peaches are apt not to think of the stone, and sometimes jar their teeth terribly against it. ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot Such young unfurrowed souls roll to meet each other like two velvet peaches that touch softly and are at rest; they mingle as easily as two brooklets that ask for nothing but to entwine themselves and ripple with ever-interlacing curves in the leafiest hiding-places. ~ Adam Bede by George Eliot "Fan the sinking flame of hilarity with the wing of friendship; and pass the rosy wine." ~ The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens Mr. Tulkinghorn, sitting in the twilight by the open window, enjoys his wine. As if it whispered to him of its fifty years of silence and seclusion, it shuts him up the closer. More impenetrable than ever, he sits, and drinks, and mellows as it were in secrecy, pondering at that twilight hour on all the mysteries he knows. ~ Bleak House by Charles Dickens The host had gone below to the cellar, and had brought up bottles of ruby, straw-coloured, and golden drinks, which had ripened long ago in lands where no fogs are, and had since lain slumbering in the shade. Sparkling and tingling after so long a nap, they pushed at their corks to help the corkscrew (like prisoners helping rioters to force their gates), and danced out gaily. ~ The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens
