January 28: Thoughts for the Day

Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es.
~Anthelme Brillat-Savarin~
Physiologie du Gout, ou Meditations de Gastronomie Transcendante, 1826

This translates, roughly, into “Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are.”

Today, we say “You are what you eat.”  And you are.  And I am.  And I should always remember that.
