Pablo Neruda
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Oscar Wilde
“After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one's own relations.”
Oscar Wilde, A Woman of No Importance

M.F.K. Fisher
“Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly.”
M.F.K. Fisher

“In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since.
"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
