Famous Pig Quotes

I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it. George Bernard Shaw

Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22 year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? here’s an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage! Frank Kaiser

We are Jesus Christ’s; we belong to him. But even more, we are increasingly him. He moves in and commandeers our hands and feet, requisitions our minds and tongues. We sense his rearranging debris into the divine, pig’s ear into silk purse. He repurposes bad decisions and squalid choices. Little by little, a new image emerges.  Max Lucado

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals. Winston S. Churchill

These are bagpipes. I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man made sound never equalled the purity of the sound achieved by the pig. Alfred Hitchcock

Never wrestle with pigs. You both get dirty and the pig likes it. George Bernard Shaw

Fame is like a shaved pig with a greased tail, and it is only after it has slipped through the hands of some thousands, that some fellow, by mere chance, holds on to it! Davy Crockett              

I will never deny that life isn’t fair. It seems as though when a woman leaves a man she is strong and independent, but when a man leaves a woman he is a pig and a jerk. Criss Jami

Anything that got to do with a pig, I ain’t eatin. Ice Cube

Surely, comrades, you don’t want Jones back? George Orwell

I do love Italian food. Any kind of pasta or pizza. My new pig out food is Indian food. I eat Indian food like three times a week. It’s so good. Jennifer Love Hewitt

It’s just the way things are. Take a moment to consider this statement. Really think about it. We send one species to the butcher and give our love and kindness to another apparently for no reason other than because it’s the way things are. When our attitudes and behaviors towards animals are so inconsistent, and this inconsistency is so unexamined, we can safely say we have been fed absurdities. It is absurd that we eat pigs and love dogs and don’t even know why. Many of us spend long minutes in the aisle of the drugstore mulling over what toothpaste to buy. Yet most of don’t spend any time at all thinking about what species of animal we eat and why. Our choices as consumers drive an industry that kills ten billion animals per year in the United States alone. If we choose to support this industry and the best reason we can come up with is because it’s the way things are, clearly something is amiss. What could cause an entire society of people to check their thinking caps at the door and to not even realize they’re doing so? Though this question is quite complex, the answer is quite simple carnism. Melanie Joy

I am not a pig farmer. The pigs had a great time, but I didn’t make any money. Willie Nelson

If I say you’re a goatherd’s son, you say, Yes, Lord Ralon. Alanna gasped with fury. I’d as soon kiss a pig! Is that what you’ve been doing kissing pigs? Or being kissed? Tamora Pierce

One day, I hope to have a pot bellied pig and a wombat as pets. Dylan Lauren

He lifts her breasts, which fit perfectly into his hands, though he knows this is no promise that he gets to keep them. A million things you can’t have will fit in a human hand. Barbara Kingsolver

There really is no ethical difference between eating a cat or a chicken, a dog or a pig. Steve O

I never met a pig I didn’t like. All pigs are intelligent, emotional, and sensitive souls. They all love company. They all crave contact and comfort. Pigs have a delightful sense of mischief; most of them seem to enjoy a good joke and appreciate music. And that is something you would certainly never suspect from your relationship with a pork chop. Sy Montgomery

I love food. I’m a huge food addict. I think in my past life I was a pig or something like that, but I love eating; I never stop eating. Justin Lee

All the inane, meaningless noises people make that pass for intelligent conversation. They might as well be pigs grunting in the pen. Norma Fox Mazer

For me, you can’t be a big fat pig up there, slovenly and singing croaky and whatnot. You have to work. Dolores O’Riordan

Tom Friedman says China is so awesome they make kosher pigs. Jonah Goldberg

You know, in our culture today, our Western, reductionist, Roman, linear, fragmented culture, we don’t ask how to make a pig happy. We ask how to grow it faster, fatter, bigger, cheaper, and that’s not a noble goal. Joel Salatin

I was in the play Fat Pig in the West End, which is a comedy but has dramatic moments. Robert Webb

It’s a pretty blokey magazine Bacon Busters, Australia’s only magazine dedicated to pig hunting, but they have women in it too. There’s a Boars and Babes section women in bikinis sitting on big old pigs. Andrew Symonds

We’re going to be focusing our science on things that will take us farther and longer into space. For many of those experiments, the crew members are human guinea pigs, which is fine; that’s part of my job. I don’t mind being a human guinea pig. John L. Phillips

While Alice craved sweets, her brother loved meat. Chops and ribs and butt and bacon. Sausage sizzling in its own fat, the key ingredient in the white gravy Mother fixed, which she poured over biscuits, made tender and flaky by a lacing of lard through the flour. Susan Rebecca White

Down South, even our vegetables have some pig hidden somewhere in it. A vegetable isn’t a vegetable without a little ham hock. Paula Deen

Irie serves me three ramens, including a bowl made with a rich dashi and head on shrimp and another studded with spicy ground pork and wilted spinach and lashed with chili oil. Both are exceptionally delicious, sophisticated creations, but it’s his interpretation of tonkotsu that leaves me muttering softly to myself. The noodles are firm and chewy, the roast pork is striped with soft deposits of warm fat, and the toppings white curls of shredded spring onion, chewy strips of bamboo, a perfect square of toasted seaweed are skillfully applied. Here it is the combination of tare, the culmination of years of careful tinkering, and broth, made from whole pig heads and knots of ginger, that defies the laws of tonkotsu a soup with the savory, meaty intensity of a broth made from a thousand pigs that’s light enough to leave you wanting more. And more. And more. Matt Goulding

I once gave someone a self help book for their birthday, called something like stop being such a lazy pig. And you know what, they didn’t even thank me! Lou Sanders

It was a good sized trout, opened out, salted, pressed, floured and fried. The entrails had been cooked with some vinegar and mint, mashed up and spooned onto the plate as a sort of afterthought. It was delicious simple and honest. I ate it all, and didn’t give a single thought for what it might do to my humors. I sucked every bone, washed it down with some thick, spicy red wine peasants wine from the hills above the town. I knew that I was tasting the place itself the fish from the river I had crossed on my way into the town, the pig that had rooted in the woods I had ridden through, olives grown a short walk away. The pig had snuffled under the pine trees whose nuts had adorned its sausages. I had eaten the land. The town itself will always be nameless in my memory, but even now I can assemble it from its flavors, because I have never forgotten any of them. A meal of pigs liver and fish, served with apologies. Philip Kazan

You can put wings on a pig, but you don’t make it an eagle. William J. Clinton

For most women as for most men links between sexism and speciesism are not readily apparent. We have been conditioned not to see exploitation. For example, men generally have no idea how patriarchy affects women unless they go out of their way to learn. The same is true for women with regard to cows and pigs and chickens and turkeys. Lisa Kemmerer

You can’t fatten the pig on market day. John Howard

In one corner of the large bar room I saw a pit filled with mud and a pig. I watched a buxom, mature woman as she rolled around in this soup, trying to catch a pig that seemed to be more elusive than expected. Squealing the pig escaped from the pit and ran for his life. Everyone joined in trying to catch the critter and eventually some guys did return him to the pit he called home. Picking him up with a mud covered towel the woman and her pig disappeared behind a curtain, only to be replaced by two other women who started wrestling each other. It was an expected typically crude performance that everyone seemed to enjoy. After finishing my overpriced beer I hightailed out of there and took the city rapid transit back to the ship. Captain Hank Bracker

Theer’s no use saying pigs conner fly, when you see them catching swallows. Alan Garner

The pig is not just pork chops and bacon and ham to us. The pig is a co laborer in this great land healing ministry. Joel Salatin

We only ever got pig blood. This wasn’t because it was the only type of animal blood the butcher had. Pigs are dirty, my mum said once. It’s what your body deserves. But it turns out that pigs aren’t naturally dirty. Rather, humans keep pigs in dirty conditions, feeding them rotten vegetables, letting the mud in their toosmall pens mix with their feces; the filth of the pig is just symptomatic of the sins of the human. Wild pigs eat plants. They’ve even been shown to clean fruit in creeks before eating it, and they never eat or roll around in their own feces. I told my mum this, but she was adamant that the pig was the filthiest animal and was what we deserved. Claire Kohda

I have no desire to maintain a lifestyle. I am a horrible celebrity. If I am out in public I dress like a pig. Sandra Bullock

One time I took my knife and sliced off the end of a hog’s nose, just like a piece of salami. The hog went crazy for a few seconds. Then it sat there looking kind of stupid. So I took a handful of salt and rubbed it on the wound. Now that hog really went nuts. It was my way of taking out frustration. Another time, there was a live hog in the pit. It hadn’t done anything wrong, wasn’t even running around. It was just alive. I took a three foot chunk of pipe and I literally beat that hog to death. It was like I started hitting the hog and I couldn’t stop. And when I finally did stop, I’d expended all this energy and frustration, and I’m thinking what in God’s sweet name did I do. Gail A. Eisnitz

I have a pig valve. Barbara Bush

Critics are like pigs at the pastry cart. John Updike

The first thing I heard when I got in the business not from my mentor  was, Bulls make money, bears make money, and pigs get slaughtered. I’m here to tell you I was a pig.

All those who have vantage points in their spirit ; all those who are masters of their language; all those for whom words have a meaning; all those for whom there exist sublimities in the soul and currents of thought; all those who are the spirit of the times, and have named these currents of thought  and I am thinking of their precise works, of that automatic grinding that delivers their spirit to the winds are pigs. Antonin Artaud

In interior decorating, the pig’s actually quite there. It’s used in paint for the texture, but also for the glossiness. In sandpaper, bone glue is actually the glue between the sand and the paper. And then in paintbrushes, hairs are used because, apparently, they’re very suitable for making paintbrushes because of their hard wearing nature. Christien Meindertsma

Hell, a pig had most humans beat, smarter than small children, and we didn’t eat those but maybe we should. Kelly J. Cogswell

Americans! They want to go 600 miles an hour, and they don’t know how to walk! Look at them in the street. Bent over. Coughing! Young men with gray faces! Why can’t they look at the animals? Look at a cat. Look at any animal. The only animal that doesn’t hold its stomach in is the pig. Joseph Pilates

Allegedly, allegedly I say, the R.G.A. were extremely miffed of portrait painted of their monarch, King Tingaling XX, by Master.

I’m obsessed with working out. I eat like a pig, so it kind of makes up for that. Millie Bobby Brown

Farmers today keep themselves in ignorance of the needs and true nature of pigs precisely because to know would put their conscience in a terrible bind. Wilful ignorance of this kind is no better than complicity. Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson

Our trademark asymmetrical hairstyle came about by accident. My sister was trying to get her beautician’s licence, and I was her guinea pig. She permed my hair and didn’t wash out one of the sides properly, so the whole right side of my hair was eaten out. After she washed it, I was half bald. Pepa

More often than not, expecting to lose weight without first losing the diet that made the weight loss necessary is like expecting a pig to be spotless after hosing it down while it was still rolling in mud. Mokokoma Mokhonoana

In the 80s, I did two hours of cardio every day, split between running and the stationary bike. It was a trap afterward I’d feel starving but also bulletproof, so I’d pig out. I slid into what I call exercise bulimia, when you’re running more and more miles so you can eat worse and worse food. Skip Bayless

Then the geese replaced themselves with six pigs and vanished. Diana Wynne Jones

The labs were happy that I was brave enough to attempt to program it and the $5 million computer was left entirely to my use. I was their human guinea pig. Philip Emeagwali

The difference might seem like just a rounding error, he told me, but if you ever had to kill an extra hundred thousand pigs and dispose of their bodies in bulldozed pits, you’d remember the difference as significant. David Quammen

There’s nothing as useful as the truth, in terms of ruining anyone’s day, week, month, year, decade, or life. Unless, of course, you own a remotely operated automatic flamethrower drone tower and have some marinated pork chops on your person, to lure unsuspecting dogs in close proximity to it, but since dogs don’t really have lives by using this specific method of torture, you can only improve the remaining few seconds of their existence. Will Advise

I am the people, I’m not the pig. You got to make a distinction. And the people are going to have to attack the pigs. The people are going to have to stand up against the pigs. That’s what the Panthers is doing, that’s what the Panthers are doing all over the world.Fred Hampton

Really, Wizard Derk, this place is like a pigsty! she said. Derk settled more comfortably among the pigs.It is a pigsty, he said. Diana Wynne Jones
