The Quotable Conrad

Recently, I bought a 1961 paperback copy of an Italian cookbook (for only 75¢!). Inside I found this quote from Joseph Conrad, author of "Heart of Darkness" and "Lord Jim":

"The intention of every other piece of prose may be discussed and even mistrusted, but the purpose of a cookery book is one and unmistakable. Its object can conceivably be no other than to increase the happiness of mankind."
