Favorite Banquets Quotes

1. "Sometimes, the simple things are more fun and meaningful than all the banquets in the world ..."
Author: E.A. Bucchianeri
2. "In the midst of this utopia, which only your fellow lone voyagers would perceive, you used to transgress society's rules unknowingly, and no one would hold you accountable for it. You would mistakenly enter private residences, go to concerts to which you had not been invited, eat at community banquets where you could only guess the community's identity when they started giving speeches. Had you behaved like this in your own country, you would have been taken for a liar or a fool. But the improbable ways of a foreigner are accepted. Far from your home, you used to taste the pleasure of being mad without being alienated, of being an imbecile without renouncing your intelligence, of being an impostor without culpability."
Author: Édouard Levé
3. "We two make banquets of the plainest fareIn every cup we find the thrill of pleasure... For us life always moves with lilting measureWe two, we two, we make our world, our pleasure"
Author: Ella Wheeler Wilcox
4. "The queen who mended her stockings in prison must have looked every inch a queen and even more a queen than at sumptuous banquets and levees."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
5. "To be Queen Elizabeth within a definite area, deciding sales, banquets, labours, and holidays; to be Whitely within a certain area, providing toys, boots, cakes and books; to be Aristotle within a certain area, teaching morals, manners, theology, and hygiene; I can imagine how this can exhaust the mind, but I cannot imagine how it could narrow it. How can it be a large career to tell other people about the Rule of Three, and a small career to tell one's own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone and narrow to be everything to someone? No, a woman's function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
6. "From this arid sphere every discourse and every poem sets forth; and every journeythrough forests, battles, treasures, banquets, bedchambers, brings us back here, to the centerof an empty horizon."
Author: Italo Calvino
7. "And so it was settled. Sam Gamgee married Rose Cotton in the spring of 1420 (which was also famous for its weddings), and they came and lived at Bag End. And if Sam thought himself lucky, Frodo knew that he was more lucky himself; for there was not a hobbit in the Shire that was looked after with such care. When the labours or repair had all been planned and set going he took to a quiet life, writing a good deal and going through all his notes. He resigned the office of Deputy Mayor at the Free Fair that Midsummer, and dear old Will Whitfoot had another seven years of presiding at Banquets."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
8. "Growing up doing those Kiwanis Clubs, doing those Cub Scout banquets, doing those church shows, I learned to find that sensibility that most people could laugh at - that all ages and demographics could laugh at."
Author: Jeff Dunham
9. "Without the book business it would be difficult or impossible for true books to find their true readers and without that solitary (and potentially subversive) alone with a book the whole razzmatazz of prizes, banquets, television spectaculars, bestseller lists, even literature courses, editors and authors, are all worthless. Unless a book finds lovers among those solitary readers, it will not live . . . or live for long."
Author: John McGahern
10. "Ask for a valiant heart which has banished the fear of death, which looks upon the length of days as one of the least of nature's gifts; which is able to suffer every kind of hardship, is proof against anger, craves for nothing, and reckons the trials and gruelling labours of Hercules as more desirable blessings than the amorous ease and the banquets and cushions of Sardanapallus. The things that I recommend you can grant to yourself."
Author: Juvenal
11. "The mare on which the traitor had been seated at the time of his death was, obviously, no longer considered the best horse in Parthia. It was amazing that she had not been served as stew at one of the banquets."
Author: M.C. Scott
12. "A revolutionary career does not lead to banquets and honorary titles, interesting research and professorial wages. It leads to misery, disgrace, ingratitude, prison and a voyage into the unknown, illuminated by only an almost superhuman belief."
Author: Max Horkheimer
13. "Today's breakfast consist of rice and a piece of bread fried in a bit of salt pork grease. At least I have my memories of grand banquets and fine foods, but this is all the children have ever known. I suppose it is best not to have anything to compare."
Author: Nancy B. Brewer
14. "Lord Foulgrin: "You must not let him see Charis as a place of learning, exploration, duties, travel, companionship, banquets, celebrations, and productive work. A low view of heaven is our ace in the hole." (conspiring to bring Fletcher down after salvation)"
Author: Randy Alcorn
15. "I can trace every romance of my life back to a meal. My memories are enhanced by the tender morsels had at tables across from lovers, on blankets with friends who'd eventually become more, in banquets, barbecues, and breakfasts."
Author: Stephanie Klein
16. "I'm to attend balls and banquets without my squire?" demanded Raoul, all innocence. "I can't handle things like requesting water to shave with, or getting my clothes pressed. I need Kel."
Author: Tamora Pierce
17. "He'd noticed that sex bore some resemblance to cookery: it fascinated people, they sometimes bought books full of complicated recipes and interesting pictures, and sometimes when they were really hungry they created vast banquets in their imagination - but at the end of the day they'd settle quite happily for egg and chips. If it was well done and maybe had a slice of tomato."
Author: Terry Pratchett
18. "Some minds corrode and grow inactive under the loss of personal liberty; others grow morbid and irritable; but it is the nature of the poet to become tender and imaginitive in the loneliness of confinement. He banquets upon the honey of his own thoughts, and, like the captive bird, pours forth his soul in melody."
Author: Washington Irving

Today's Quote

Burlington, Vermont, Nouvelle-Angleterre, était considéré par le reste du pays comme un trou perdu.Charmant, mais tellement ennuyeux. Ça me convenait plutôt bien au début, du moins jusqu'à ce que je réalise que ce paisible petit bled abritait en secret l'une des plus vieilles communautés surnaturelles du pays. Vous me direz, rien n'est parfait... peut être, mais si j'avais su, j'y aurais regardé à deux fois avant de de venir m'y installer six mois plus tôt. Les humains de l'office du tourisme auraient dû le mentionner dans leurs prospectus. Ça aurait donné un truc du genre :"Venez visiter Burlington, l'été, vous pourrez pratiquer les sports nautiques ou pêcher sur le lac Champlain et l'hiver, vous pourrez faire du ski ou de la randonnée en raquettes, ah, au fait, n'oubliez pas d'amener avec vous quelques fusils munis de balles d'argent, un ou deux pieux, trois ou quatre lance-flammes, les habitants du coin sont du genre irritable..."
