Appetite is Craving; Hunger is Desire. Craving is never satisfied; but Desire is relieved when Want is Supplied.
Eating without Hunger, or pandering to Appetite at the expense of Digestion, makes Disease inevitable.
Some, as thou saws't, by violent stroke shall die, By fire, flood, famine; by intemperance more In meats and drinks, which on the Earth shall bring Diseases dire, of which a monstrous crew Before thee shall appear, that thou mays't know What misery the inabstinence of Eve Shall bring on men.
If thou well observe - The rule of "Not too much" by temperance taught In what thou eat'st and drink'st, seeking from thence Due nourishment, not gluttonous delight. Till many years over thy head return; So may'st thou live, till, like ripe fruit, thou drop Into thy mother's lap, or be with ease Gathered, not harshly plucked, for death mature. John Milton, "Paradise Lost." xv
