Great Pavarotti quote on eating

Pavarotti was, and still is, often quoted. One of Pavarotti’s best and most quoted passages is the one about eating. No wonder, the man loved food! The particular quote that I have in mind is:

One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.

The quote is from Pavarotti’s first autobiography “My Own Story” that was written by William Wright (1981, Doubleday).


More quotes by Pavarotti sometime in the future. And more about Pavarotti and food as well. So many blog post to look forward to! 🙂

I end this post with a very funny scene from the only movie Pavarotti made, Yes, Giorgio, from 1982. In this scene Pavarotti is together with his co-star Kathryn Harrold in a very food-related scene!

More about Yes, Giorgio in another post. But not today. Let’s eat! 🙂
