Check out this cool list of great quotes and sayings about food and drink that have been designed specifically as desktop backgrounds and mobile wallpapers, so you can add ’em to your device to brighten up your day (simply click on the image to go to the download page).

If you’re like me then you love food; whether it’s enjoying a Sunday roast around a big fire on a cold winter’s day, or having a picnic on a green lawn in the shade of a big tree. And, of course, what would food be without drink? I’m not sure I could get through a full day’s work without my morning coffee.. oh yes, and the early afternoon booster cup too. Not to mention the occasional sneaky glass of vino in the evenings with dinner.

But food and drink isn’t only about sustenance. There’s a lot of humour and wisdom to be found in what you eat so have fun checking out these beautifully designed wallpapers and let me know if you’ve got other funny sayings about food so we can add ’em to this list.

Coffee; Chocolate; Men…

Coffee; chocolate; men. The richer the better.

Coffee, chocolate, men

    Prim and proper, but with a touch of devilish attitude. A great wallpaper for anyone who loves a touch of retro.

    Depresso…

    Depresso: That feeling you get when you’ve run out of coffee.

    Depresso; that feeling when you've run out of coffee

      Well, I guess this one goes without saying. As someone who runs out of coffee on a regular basis I like to keep a box of teabags handy – not quite the same thing but it’ll do in a pinch.

      Donut talk to me…

      Donut talk to me.

      Donut talk to me

        Of course, not; I’m busy eating my donut. Talk later.

        Not all girls are made of…

        Not all girls are made of sugar & spice and everything nice. Some girls are made of sarcasm and wine and everything fine.

        Not all girls are made of sugar and spice

          The trick is not to be completely made out of wine. Everything in moderation as they say.

          When life hands you lemons…

          When life hands you lemons grab the salt and tequila.

          When life hands you lemons

            I love this one. A good attitude can help you go far in this life. But go easy on the tequila.

            Tonight’s forecast…

            Tonight’s forecast: 99% chance of wine.

            99% chance of wine

              That’s been the forecast for quite some time now. Nothing like a relaxing glass of vino in the evenings.

              Women are like teabags…

              Women are like teabags. You never know how strong they are until you put them in hot water.

              Women are like teabags

                I’m not particularly surprised this saying comes from Eleanor Roosevelt. She’s right of course. But I guess this saying applies to anyone. We don’t really know our own strength until it’s really put to the test.

                Time to drink champagne…

                Time to drink champagne and dance on the table.

                Time to drink champagne

                  Ok, so not every saying has to be filled with deep meaning. Sometimes you just gotta let your hair down and have a good party with a couple of your best friends. No harm in having a bit of bubbly at the same time, right?

                  So that’s my list of favourite sayings. Hopefully I’ve managed to get a decent balance between funny and serious, deep and silly. There’s a world of great quotes out there to choose from, but these, for me, are the best and most attractive options for wallpapers on my PC.

                  What are your favourite quotes about food and drink (any drink, it doesn’t have to be about coffee or wine)? Share ’em in the comments and we’ll hopefully be able to convince the good people at Strange Fox to design a new bunch of free downloadable wallpapers.

                  Why Is Goal Setting Important to a Truly Fulfilling Life?

                  Why Is Goal Setting Important to a Truly Fulfilling Life?

                  In Personal Development-speak, we are always talking about goals, outcomes, success, desires and dreams. In other words, all the stuff we want to do, achieve and create in our world.

                  And while it’s important for us to know what we want to achieve (our goal), it’s also important for us to understand why we want to achieve it; the reason behind the goal or some would say, our real goal.

                  Why is goal setting important?

                  1. Your needs and desire will be fulfilled.

                  Sometimes when we explore our “why”, (why we want to achieve a certain thing) we realize that our “what” (our goal) might not actually deliver us the thing (feeling, emotion, internal state) we’re really seeking.

                  For example, the person who has a goal to lose weight in the belief that weight loss will bring them happiness, security, fulfillment, attention, popularity and the partner of their dreams. In this instance, their “what” is weight-loss and their “why” is happiness (etc.) and a partner.

                  Advertising

                  Six months later, they have lost the weight (achieved their goal) but as is often the case, they’re not happier, not more secure, not more confident, not more fulfilled and in keeping with their miserable state, they have failed to attract their dream partner.

                  After all, who wants to be with someone who’s miserable? They achieved their practical goal but still failed to have their needs met.

                  So they set a goal to lose another ten pounds. And then another. And maybe just ten more. With the destructive and erroneous belief that if they can get thin enough, they’ll find their own personal nirvana. And we all know how that story ends.

                  2. You’ll find out what truly motivates you

                  The important thing in the process of constructing our best life is not necessarily what goals we set (what we think we want) but what motivates us towards those goals (what we really want).

                  The sooner we begin to explore, identify and understand what motivates us towards certain achievements, acquisitions or outcomes (that is, we begin moving towards greater consciousness and self awareness), the sooner we will make better decisions for our life, set more intelligent (and dare I say, enlightened) goals and experience more fulfilment and less frustration.

                  Advertising

                  We all know people who have achieved what they set out to, only to end up in the same place or worse (emotionally, psychologically, sociologically) because what they were chasing wasn’t really what they were needing.

                  What we think we want will rarely provide us with what we actually need.

                  3. Your state of mind will be a lot healthier

                  We all set specific goals to achieve/acquire certain things (a job, a car, a partner, a better body, a bank balance, a title, a victory) because at some level, most of us believe (consciously or not) that the achievement of those goals will bring us what we really seek; joy, fulfilment, happiness, safety, peace, recognition, love, acceptance, respect, connection.

                  Of course, setting practical, material and financial goals is an intelligent thing to do considering the world we live in and how that world works.

                  But setting goals with an expectation that the achievement of certain things in our external, physical world will automatically create an internal state of peace, contentment, joy and total happiness is an unhealthy and unrealistic mindset to inhabit.

                  What you truly want and need

                  Sometimes we need to look beyond the obvious (superficial) goals to discover and secure what we really want.

                  Sadly, we live in a collective mindset which teaches that the prettiest and the wealthiest are the most successful.

                  Some self-help frauds even teach this message. If you’re rich or pretty, you’re happy. If you’re both, you’re very happy. Pretty isn’t what we really want; it’s what we believe pretty will bring us. Same goes with money.

                  When we cut through the hype, the jargon and the self-help mumbo jumbo, we all have the same basic goals, desires and needs:

                  Joy, fulfilment, happiness, safety, peace, recognition, love, acceptance, respect, connection.

                  Advertising

                  Nobody needs a mansion or a sport’s car but we all need love.

                  Nobody needs massive pecs, six percent body-fat, a face lift or bigger breasts but we all need connection, acceptance and understanding.

                  Nobody needs to be famous but we all need peace, calm, balance and happiness.

                  The problem is, we live in a culture which teaches that one equals the other. If only we lived in a culture which taught that real success is far more about what’s happening in our internal environment, than our external one.

                  It’s a commonly-held belief that we’re all very different and we all have different goals — whether short term or long term goals. But in many ways we’re not, and we don’t; we all want essentially the same things.

                  Now all you have to do is see past the fraud and deception and find the right path.
