The religious and superstitious feeling attached to bread

is stronger in some countries than in others.

To some it is, more than any other food, a direct gift from God.

The New Book of Middle Eastern Food

A book of verses underneath the bough

A flask of wine, a loaf of bread and though

Beside me singing in the wilderness

And wilderness is paradise now.

Omar Khayyam

The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

There is an Arabic proverb that says:

She makes you feel like a loaf of freshly baked bread.

If I really think that I'm the greatest thing

since sliced bread, it's probably because I've

never eaten the sandwich.
