History, as more austerely I now know it, is not romantic. But I am." - Elizabeth Bowen

Butchers still slap down prime cuts with just a little more force and noise than necessary.

Oven doors in most kitchens have to be constantly tightened because of repeatedly being kicked closed by clog-shod feet. And all of us dearly love to play with knives." - Anthony Bourdain
