Making Sense of Scents

A matter of taste

1.                The Universe is nothing without life, and all   that lives takes nourishment.

 

  1. 2.  Beasts feed, man eats: the man of intellect knows how to eat.

 

  1. 3.  The fate of nations hangs upon their choice of food.

 

  1. 4.  Tell me what you eat: I will tell you what you are

 

  1. 5.  The Creator, who made man such that he must eat to live, causes him to eat by means of         appetite, and, for a reward gives him the pleasure in eating.

 

  1. 6.  Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we give preference to things which are agreeable    to our     taste over those which have not that quality
