Daily Food Quote: Mahatma Gandhi on Hunger and Eating

There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.–Mahatma Gandhi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, more commonly known as “Mahatma Gandhi,” was born on October 2, 1869, in Porbandar, India. He studied law and became a defender of Indian rights both in India and South Africa, where he lived and worked for some 20 years. His method of opposing British rule and treatment was through mass non-violent civil disobedience, which has made him a model for peaceful revolution around the world.

Gandhi believed in living a simple life. He wove and made his own clothes, was a vegetarian and used traditional Indian fasts both for self-purification and protests against British discriminatory legislation against Indians. His philosophy of life and political “action” remain a beacon of hope for oppressed people around the world.

On a hot day in Virginia, I know nothing more comforting than a fine spiced pickle, brought up trout-like from the sparkling depths of the aromatic jar below the stairs of Aunt Sally’s cellar.Thomas Jefferson, 3rd President of The United States of America

At the age of 33, Thomas Jefferson (1743 to 1826) drafted the Declaration of Independence. More a writer than an orator, he was elected President in 1800, serving two terms.
