Quote of the Day

Is there any wonder why I appreciate the following quote from the German scientist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799)?

"Food probably has a very great influence on the condition of men. Wine exercises a more visible influence, food does it more slowly but perhaps just as surely. Who knows if a well-prepared soup was not responsible for the pneumatic pump or a poor one for a war?"
