A Quote by Edward Robert Bulwer-Lytton on art, books, conscience, cooking, friendship, heart, hope, knowledge, love, music, passion, and poetry

We may live without poetry, music and art; We may live without conscience, and live without heart; We may live without friends; we may live without books; But civilized man cannot live without cooks. . . . He may live without books,-what is knowledge but grieving? He may live without hope,-what is hope but deceiving? He may live without love,-what is passion but pining? But where is the man that can live without dining?
