Help with finding quotes from Like Water for Chocolate?

Asked by bunnygirl50665 (80 points ) December 5th, 2012

I need quotes from the book Like Water for Chocolate to support my thesis: The recurring food motif creates an outlet for self expression, giving one a sense of freedom even in an oppressive environment.

So basically I just need 3 quotes about how food shows self expression and 3 quotes about how food makes one feel free even in a not-so-free environment.

I already have one quote for self expression, which is “Everything on the kitchen side of that door…was completely hers——it was Tita’s realm” (7).

Thanks so much to everyone who can help. It’s just hard finding quotes. :/

Have a look on Internet Movie Database. There is always a list of quotes for each film.

Well i have to write a report on a book, so I’m not sure if that would work.

I think I’ll try skimming through sparknotes chapter summaries to see if it mentions anything notable about my topic, then I’ll go try to find quotes around there.

The only other way I can think of, other than thumbing through the book, is if you have a digital copy and can do a search for food references. The film might give you some clues as to key points in the book where food was a theme. I don’t know how close to the book the film was. I haven’t read the book.

It’s a very good book, and not that long; if you have time, I recommend reading it. You’ll get a lot more out of it that way, not only for your paper, but for yourself. Good luck!

I agree with @AngryWhiteMale. When we write a report on a book, it’s kind of in the contract that we would read it, too. Ahem.
