APPETITE

More than a motivator,
marker of hunger,
it drives decisions,
sometimes destiny

Herald to action,
heartbeat of life,
this humble impulse
will be heard

Embraced,
befriended,
Appetite begs
not only for food

Managed,
directed,
it offers a door
to understanding

Quotes to consider:

“A well-governed appetite is a great part of liberty” – Seneca

“Reason should direct and appetite obey” – Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Appetite comes with eating; the more one has, the more one would have.” – French Proverb

“Always rise from the table with an appetite, and you will never sit down without one.” – Horace Greeley

“As we become purer channels for God’s light, we develop an appetite for the sweetness that is possible in this world. A miracle worker is not geared toward fighting the world that is, but toward creating the world that could be.” – Marianne Williamson

“Doth not the appetite alter? A man loves the meat in his youth that he cannot endure in his age” – William Shakespeare
