Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving.
A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety. - Aesop
Life is a banquet, and most poor bastards are starving to death.
At the banquet table of nature, there are no reserved seats. You get what you can take, and you keep what you can hold. If you can't take anything, you won't get anything, and if you can't hold anything, you won't keep anything. And you can't take anything without organization. - A. Philip Randolph
Life resembles the banquet of Damocles; the sword is ever suspended. - Voltaire
