A Quote by John Ruskin on art, cooking, economics, hospitality, knowledge, media, niceness, and science

What does cooking mean? It means the knowledge of Media and of Circe, and of Calypso, and Sheba. It means knowledge of all herbs , and fruits. and balms and spices. . . . I means the economy of your great-grandmother and the science of modern chemistry, and French art, and Arabian hospitality. It means, in fine, that your are to see imperatively, that everyone has something nice to eat.

John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
