appetite comes with eating

views updated

appetite comes with eating desire or facility increases as an activity proceeds; first recorded in this form in English in a mid 17th-century translation of Rabelais' Gargantua. A similar idea is indicated in Shakespeare's Hamlet (1600–1), ‘She would hang on him As if increase of appetite had grown By what it fed on.’
