Text Quotes
One real thing is closer to God than all the diagrams in the world  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) At the root of many a woman’s failure to become a great cook lies her failure to develop a workmanlike regard for knives.  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Older women are like aging strudels - the crust may not be so lovely, but the filling has come at last into its own  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Even to this day, grace remains hard to swallow. Religiosity and moralism go down easier than free forgiveness  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Give us this day our daily taste. Restore to us soups that spoons will not sink in and sauces which are never the same twice. Raise up among us stews with more gravy than we have bread to blot it with Give us pasta with a hundred fillings  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) I like a cook who smiles out loud when he tastes his own work. Let God worry about your modesty; I want to see your enthusiasm  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Do you seriously envision St. Paul or Calvin or Luther opening bottles of Welch’s Grape Juice in the sacristy before the service? Luther at least would turn over in his grave  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) God makes the world not out of necessity but by a divine Whim, and the world he makes is a whimsically romantic place. We’re all crazy about each other because we’re made in the image of Someone who’s been crazy about us  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Salvation is not some felicitous state to which we can lift ourselves by our own bootstraps after the contemplation of sufficiently good examples. It is an utterly new creation into which we are brought by our death in Jesus’ death and our resurrection in his. It comes not out of our own best efforts, however well-inspired or successfully pursued, but out of the shipwreck of all human efforts whatsoever  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Perhaps you see, therefore, why I think taste must come before nutrition? Our infatuation for the quasi-scientific has left us easy marks for con men and tin fiddle manufacturers  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Older women are like aging strudels - the crust may not be so lovely, but the filling has come at last into its own.  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) In the Bible, the opposite of Sin, with a capital ‘S,’ is not virtue - it’s faith: faith in a God who draws all to himself in his resurrection.  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) If you take all your meals seriously, none of them gets a chance to matter  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Salvation is a gift given, not a bargain struck  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Christianity is not a religion; it is the announcement of the end of religion  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) A good time occurs precisely when we lose track of what time it is  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) However much we hate the law, we are more afraid of grace  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Heaven is populated entirely by forgiven sinners  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) A silent lover is one who doesn’t know his job  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) What is good is difficult, and what is difficult is rare  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) What are you going to do with your freedom?  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Why do we marry, why take friends and lovers? Why give ourselves to music, painting, chemistry or cooking? Out of simple delight in the resident goodness of creation, of course; but out of more than that, too. Half earth’s gorgeousness lies hidden in the glimpsed city it longs to become  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Only miracle is plain; it is in the ordinary that groans with the weight of glory  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Every real thing is a joy, if only you have eyes and ears to relish it, a nose and tongue to taste it  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) The world is by no means averse to religion. In fact, it is devoted to it with a passion. It will buy any recipe for salvation as long as that formula leaves the responsibility for cooking up salvation firmly in human hands. The world is drowning in religion. But it is scared out of its wits by any mention of the grace that takes the world home gratis  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Man was made to lead with his chin; he is worth knowing only with his guard down, his head up and his heart rampant on his sleeve  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) We were given appetites, not to consume the world and forget it, but to taste its goodness and hunger to make it great  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Your stew, so long deferred, stands finally extra causas. Greet it as your fellow creature. It is as deliciously unnecessary as you are  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) The reason for not going out and sinning all you like is the same as the reason for not going out and putting your nose in a slicing machine: its dumb, stupid, and no fun. Some individual sins may have pleasure still attached to them because of the residual goodness of the realities they are abusing: adultery can indeed be pleasant and tying one on can amuse. But betrayal, jealousy, love grown cold, and the gray dawn of the morning after are nobody’s idea of a good time  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes) Jesus came to raise the dead. He did not come to teach the teachable; He did not come to improve the improvable; He did not come to reform the reformable. None of those things works  (Robert Farrar Capon Quotes)
