Why do we prefer eating together to eating alone?
By eating together we celebrate together, (a) that we are animals who relish food, (b) that we are social and need each other and (c) that we are cultural and delight in skill and invention
Yes! All of that in there in “would you like another slice of this rather nice bread?”

She wrote: 'Love is the extremely difficult realization that something other than oneself is real. Love, and so art and morals, is the discovery of reality.' Could this be right?

Murdoch is someone who, in her novels, her philosophy and her life, makes the interest and importance of these issues vividly apparent!
