hunger

A Quote by Captain Edward "Eddie" Vernon Rickenbacker on business, day, drinking, experience, facts, food, hunger, meetings, organize, prayer, and water

. . . we saw nothing in the way of searching planes or ships. . . . the second day out we organized little evening and morning prayer meetings. . . . Frankly and humbly we prayed for our deliverance. After the oranges were gone, we experienced terrific pangs of hunger, and we prayed for food. We had a couple of little fish lines with hooks about the size of the end of my little finger, but no bait. Were it not for the fact that I have seven witnesses, I wouldn't dare tell this story because it seems so fantastic. Within an hour after prayer meeting on the eighth day, a sea gull came out of nowhere and landed on my head. I reached up my hand very gently and got him. We wrung his head, feathered him, carved up his carcass and ate every bit, even the little bones. We distributed and used his innards for bait. Captain Cherry caught a little mackerel about six or eight inches long and I caught a little speckled sea bass about the same size, so we had food for a couple of days. . . . That night we ran into our first rainstorm. Usually you try to avoid a black squall, but in this case we made it our business to get into it and catch water for drinking. . . . Later we were able to catch more water and build up our supply. . . .

A Quote by General Dwight David Eisenhower on hunger and theft

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

If only it was as easy to banish hunger by rubbing the belly as it is to masturbate.

A Quote by Dave Sim on body and hunger

I think the more rational explanation is that the excision of a five-to-six-foot leech from the surface of a human body means that that body is going to have more of its own blood in its own veins. Unless the leech finds another body, it is going to go hungry.

Dave Sim (1957 -)

A Quote by Daniel H. Wells on blessings, charity, dependence, direction, god, hunger, independence, and path

You may give a piece of bread to a hungry person, and when the cravings of hunger return some one else must administer to his wants again; to put that person in a position to earn his own subsistence is true charity; in this way you direct his feet in the path of true independence, he is then only dependent on his own exertions and on the blessings of his God.

A Quote by C.W. Hulme on animals, conventionality, day, fear, hunger, literature, suffering, words, and writing

To this day the more conventional biologists suffer from an obsessional fear of anthropomorphism, and even put such words as "hunger" and "fear" between quotes (a literary solecism in any case) when writing about animals. The quotes are a way of saying "I cannot get on without Anthropomorphism, but I am ashamed to be seen with her in public".

A Quote by Bodhidharma on death, future, hunger, past, present, uncertainty, and worry

When mortals are alive, they worry about death. When they're full, they worry about hunger. Theirs is the Great Uncertainty. But sages don't consider the past. And they don't worry about the future. Nor do they cling to the present. And from moment to moment they follow the Way.
