An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
QUOTES AND APHORISMS ON APPETITE
The most violent appetites in all creatures are lust and hunger; the first is a perpetual call upon them to propagate their kind, the latter to preserve themselves.
Joseph Addison (1672-1719, British essayist, poet, statesman)
Appetite is essentially insatiable, and where it operates as a criterion of both action and enjoyment (that is, everywhere in the Western world since the sixteenth century) it will infallibly discover congenial agencies (mechanical and political) of expression.
Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980, Canadian communications theorist)
'Tis not the meat, but 'tis the appetite makes eating a delight.
Sir John Suckling
