Hunger
 
  Hunger is sharper than the sword.
Beaumont and Fletcher.    
  1
  Cruel as death, and hungry as the grave.
Thomson.    
  2
  Hunger was the best seasoning for meat.
Cicero.    
  3
  They that die by famine die by inches.
Matthew Henry.    
  4
        Famished people must be slowly nursed,
And fed by spoonfuls, else they always burst.
Byron.    
  5
  Hunger is the teacher of the arts, and the bestower of invention.
Persius.    
  6
  Hunger is the mother of impatience and anger.
Zimmermann.    
  7
  A hungry people listens not to reason, nor cares for justice, nor is bent by any prayers.
Seneca.    
  8
            Man is a carnivorous production,
And must have meals, at least one meal a day;
He cannot live, like woodcocks, upon suction,
But, like the shark and tiger, must have prey.
Although his anatomical construction
Bears vegetables, in a grumbling way,
Your laboring people think beyond all question,
Beef, veal, and mutton better for digestion.
Byron.    
  9
