"We may live without poetry, music and art; We may live without conscience and live without heart; We may live without friends; we may live without books; But civilized man can not live without cooks. 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"
