He Refuses To Starve To Live


anecdotal stories
The composer Brahms was a great devotee of culinary art, not from the creative but from the consuming standpoint. At one time his doctor ordered him on a reduced diet, and Brahms promised faithfully to follow his orders.

The very next day the doctor saw Brahms in a famous Viennese restaurant in deep communion with a very rich and very Viennese meal.

“So this is the way you obey my orders,” said the doctor reproachfully.

Brahms looked up from the table. “Oh don’t bother about it! Do you suppose I’m going to starve to death just to be able to live a few more years?”

Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built. – Luke 17:28
