I'm pretty sure "Hunger is the best sauce" is actually from a Moliere play; it's become an adage in lots of languages. Moliere is second only to Shakespeare in having quotes from his writing become adages nobody remembers the origin of.

It was the Puss in Boots eyes.

If you've seen the "Shrek" movies or the spin-off cartoon starring the storybook cat voiced by Antonio Banderas, you know what I'm talking about. Whenever Puss in Boots really needs something from someone, he flashes these enormous kitten eyes that melt anyone in their path. Whenever my daughter really wants something, she tries to lay them on me, and I have to say, "Stop trying to give me the Puss in Boots eyes ... you can't have chocolate cake for dinner."

I knew Barack Obama was miserable...
