A toast to Shakespeare and his best bready quotes…

When you take the time to read through the works of Shakespeare, you will find that he really loved his bread.  Here’s my personal favourites…

“The crust of true loaf never did run smooth.”

“Tea cake, or not tea cake, that is the question.”

“Loaf alters not with his brief hours and days,
But bears it out even to the edge of its best before date
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loaved.”

“When Loaf speaks, the voice of all the breads
Makes heaven drowsy with the fermentation.”

“Eat me or leave me
Both are in my favour…
If you eat me I will be in your digestional tract
If you leave me I will grow old and mouldy.”

“My bread is as boundless as the sea,
My loaf as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”

“Some are born bready. Some achieve breadiness, and some have bread thrust upon them.”

“No legacy is so rich as merry berry’s triple chocolate fudge gateaux supreme.”
