Starvation Quotations

The voices of moral authority in the theatre demanded only punctuality and physical performance. In the light of continuing pressure and stress, the occasional lip service paid to moderation was meaningless. Starvation and poisoning were not excesses, but measures taken to stay within the norm.
Gelsey Kirkland

I did not feel 'evil' when I wrote advertisements for Puerto Rico. They helped attract industry and tourists to a country which had been living on the edge of starvation for 400 years.
David Ogilvy

Theodore Bikel

Bertrand Russell

Starvation and disease are the original weapons of mass destruction. When you burn fields and kill animals, people are left vulnerable.
