Food Quote Friday: Palme Vidar

On Iceland:

“‘This is a small country,’ he says. ‘We have always swung, between feast and famine. There have been terrible times before, too, when the sheep bubble burst and the herring fleet failed. We always hang on. And you know, we were not going in a good direction. When I was a boy, if you went to the harbour to fish and you got wet, you could not fish again until the next day, because you had only one pair of trousers. Today people have too many trousers.'”

— Palme Vidar in The Guardian
