“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.”

Matthew 4:4

Our staple food!

Whenever I think of bread, I think of these events:

^ When the Israelites were in the wilderness and they berated Moses for having no bread. Moses, in turn, asked God to provide bread and the Lord provided manna (bread of Heaven).

^ When the French peasants had no bread and upon learning this, Queen Marie Antoinette shouted, ‘Let them eat cake!’ This phrase was misattributed to her as there is no record of her having said this according to Jean-Jacques Rousseau in his autobiography Confessions. I’ll leave this for another time, but the Queen had supposedly said ‘Let them eat brioche.’
