Famous quotes containing the words dishes, vegetarian and/or main:

    First there’s the children’s house of make believe,
    Some shattered dishes underneath a pine,
    The playthings in the playhouse of the children.
    Weep for what little things could make them glad.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
