Famous quotes containing the word eat:

    Such was life in the Golden Gate:
    Gold dusted all we drank and ate,
    And I was one of the children told,
    “We all must eat our peck of gold.”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I who was a house full of bowel movement,
    I who was a defaced altar,
    I who wanted to crawl toward God
    could not move nor eat bread.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Wherever there’s a fight so hungry people can eat, I’ll be there. Wherever there’s a cop beating up a guy, I’ll be there. I’ll be in the way guys yell when they’re mad. I’ll be in the way kids laugh when they’re hungry and they know supper’s ready. And when the people eat the stuff they raise, and living in the houses they build, I’ll be there, too.
    Nunnally Johnson (1897–1977)
