"Dish" Quotes from Famous Books



... the others were rushing for the happy pair she was in the kitchen with her apron on dishing up the wedding supper. Well might the Sycamore Ridge Weekly Banner declare that the "tables groaned with good things." There were not merely a little piddling dish of salad, a bite of cake, and a dab of ice-cream. There were turkey and potatoes and vegetables and fruit and bread and cake and pudding and pie—four kinds of pie, mark you—and preserves, and "Won't you please, Mrs. Culpepper, try some of that piccalilli?" and "Oh, Mrs. Ward, if you just ...

The vast and bad desire Of wealth and power at a bloody rate Is wicked,—better bread and water eat With peace; a wooden dish doth seldom hold A poison'd draught; glass is more safe than gold; But for this theme a larger time will ask, I must betake me to my former task.

On the vessel being immediately withdrawn, a very neat soldering was evident. The operation was repeated several times, till ...
