—Anonymous, U.S. cook. As quoted in I Dream a World, by Leah Chase, who was quoted in turn by Brian Lanker (1989)
“From what I have said of the natives of New Holland they may appear to some to be the most wretched people upon earth; but in reality they are far happier than we Europeans, being wholly unacquainted not only with the superfluous, but with the necessary conveniences so much sought after in Europe; they are happy in not knowing the use of them.”
—James, Captain Cook (17281779)
“Theres terrific merit in having no sense of humour, no sense of irony, practically no sense of anything at all. If youre born with these so-called defects you have a very good chance of getting to the top.”
—Peter Cook (b. 1937)
