Hospitality quotes

Proverb
Who practices hospitality entertains God himself

Henry David Thoreau
Nowadays the host does not admit you to his hearth, but has got the mason to build one for yourself somewhere in his alley, and hospitality is the art of keeping you at the greatest distance.

Robert Lynd
Coleridge says that to bait a mouse-trap is as much as to say to the mouse, 'Come and have a piece of cheese,' and then, when it accepts the invitation, to do it to death is a betrayal of the laws of hospitality.

Vanna Bonta
There is no hospitality like understanding.

Robert Herrick
And with our broth, and bread, and bits, sir friend, You've fared well : pray make an end Two days you've larded here a third, ye know, Makes guests and fish smell strong pray go

William Shakespeare
We'll teach you to drink deep ere you depart.

William Wycherley
I have heard people eat most heartily of another man's meat, that is, what they do not pay for.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us. 'Tis good to give a stranger a meal, or a night's lodging. 'Tis better to be hospitable to his good meaning and thought, and give courage to a companion. We must be as courteous to a man as we are to a picture, which we are willing to give the advantage of a good light.
