I run because I love food


Quotes

A selection of quotes that make me smile…

“There is no sincerer love than the love of food,” George Bernard Shaw

“If you worried about falling off the bike, you’d never get on.” another one from Lance Armstrong. Relevant in view of my recent little tumble.

“Pain is only temporary, failure lasts forever,” attributed to several people, including Lance Armstrong. (Reminds me of the 2004 London Marathon, where I saw it written on a poster held by a spectator. It helped at the time.)

“Life’s too fucking short to be a size zero,” Janet Street-Porter

“There’s a lot of nonsense talked about ‘detoxing’ and most people seem to forget that we are born with a built-in detox mechanism. It’s called the liver.” Andrew Wadge, Food Standards Agency’s Chief Scientist

“If you had three minutes left to live, what would you do? I know what I’d do: I’d have a peanut butter sandwich,” Stephen Fry, America

“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention to arrive safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow!! What a ride!” I haven’t managed to track down who actually said this, but I got it from Warriorwoman.

I think it was Bear Grylls, unless he was just quoting someone else!

I read it in ‘Ultramarathon Man’ by Dean Karnazes.
