Patricia Volk

  • 'Are you sick?' my mother would ask if I left a scrap from a 12 ounce Delmonico. You weren't considered fed unless you were in pain. The more somebody loved you, the more they wanted you to eat.

  • Home ec has gone the way of health class, where we learned you could get it from a doorknob.

Patricia Volk, U.S. writer

(1943)
