"Never mind about 1066 William the Conqueror, 1087 William the Second. Such things are not going to affect ones life but 1932 the Mars Bar and 1936 Maltesers and 1937 the Kit Kat - these dates are milestones in history and should be seared into the memory of every child in the country. " Roald Dahl, author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

As well as a passion for chocolates I also have a passion for chocolate quotes. I have been collecting them for many years and will be publishing book of them soon. Most of the quotes will be my own (amusing images, definitions, and insights), but I'm also flavoring the book with quotes from others, as well as with illustrations that demonstrate the power and allure of this superb confectionery. Here's a taste of things to come:"Significantly, in pronouncing the word 'chocolate' the lips are pouted as if to kiss.""Hope that one day this ecstasy comes over you - you see the world from afar and it is a truffle.""Whoever said the best things in life are free was obviously not a lover of top quality chocolates."CHOCOMANIA: The condition of being enthralled by chocolates. the fact that it cannot be cured should not necessarily be seen as cause for concern.

I was recently sent this little-known by Alexander Pushkin. It was written shortly after he was advised to abstain from chocolate (for the sake of his health!). Perhaps he should have changed his doctor instead.Requiem for a Chocolate PralineI loved you, and I probably still do,And for a while the feeling may remain ....But let my love no longer trouble you,I do not wish to cause you any pain.I loved you; and the hopelessness I knew,The jealousy, the shyness - though in vain -Made up a love so tender and so trueAs may God grant you to be loved again.

I prefer not to think of them as "problems" but as "challenges" though I understand Art's position on this.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather a skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO-HOO, what a ride!"Anon.

Those of you who love quotable quotes may like to know I have recently published a 100-page book which is choc-full of them. Called The Language of Chocolates, it is a collection of sayings, definitions, allusions, connections and illustrations (mostly my own) on everything there is to like about chocolates. Sara Jane Stanes, one of the founders of the Academy of Chocolate in the UK, described it as utterly compelling and enjoyable; and Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat, said it was scrumptious. I think it is an ideal handbook or reference for chocophiles - a book that can be taken everywhere, and something to be reached for when in need of an elegant snack, or some sweet inspiration. If you would like to obtain a box, I mean a copy, for yourself, the book is available from www.amazon.com and other online booksellers. Here is a picture of he cover:
