“It is scandalous—all we seem to live for and think of now is food. I have never in my life taken half such an interest in food as I do now—and we are all alike…We are ready to eat anything, especially cooked blubber which none of us would tackle before. Probably living totally in the open and having to rely on food instead of fire for body heat makes us think so much of food…”

— Frank Worsley
