Gluttony Quotations

Gluttony is not a secret vice.
Orson Welles

Dave Mustaine

Gluttony is an emotional escape, a sign something is eating us.
Peter De Vries

The flesh endures the storms of the present alone; the mind, those of the past and future as well as the present. Gluttony is a lust of the mind.

Gluttony might be innocuous were it not for the fact that gluttons tend to disregard whether their self-serving behaviors harm anyone else. We don't need to look far and wide to find examples of gluttonous behavior, as they are numerous throughout the history of capitalism.
Simon Mainwaring
