“Many have eaten here—few have died”

"Many have eaten here—few have died” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many wall plaques. The saying has been cited in print since at least 2008.

Red, white, green, or black — tea is universal
Margaret Harris makes the perfect cup of tea, educates on the medicinal values of the beverage

Carolyn Supinka Oct 11, 2009
Last Wednesday, a group of people gathered in the front of Margaret’s Fine Imports in Squirrel Hill — young and old, male and female, tea connoisseurs, and newcomers to the art of brewing the world’s second-most consumed beverage — to learn about tea from a master. At 7 p.m., Margaret Harris, the owner of the shop, stood behind the register, which served as a teacher’s desk, in an apron bearing the phrase: “Many have eaten here; few have died,” and began class.
