Banana, one of the most loved fruits ever, is as compatible with any dessert as it is with beverages. Bananas are the fruity add-ons into a cereal bowl that can help fuel one's morning. The fruit also provides the body with an instant burst of energy as a post-workout bite.

Banana is also a quick hunger savior with a number of health benefits ranging from aiding digestion, fighting depression, to even tending to smaller issues such as mosquito bites. In short, the superhero of fruit has made us so dependent on it that it has become a key part of everyone's basic grocery list.

While bananas are the best fruit to add to anything, the cult banana bread has us always salivating over it. The fruit also has a trail of beverages credited to it including smoothies, cocktails, milkshakes, among others.

Considering the utility value of the delicious fruit, it has a day dedicated in its honor which falls on Aug. 27 every year. The day, called National Banana Lovers Day, celebrates the fruit and the people who wholeheartedly love it.

To mark this occasion, here are some quotes about bananas that you can completely relate to. (Courtesy: Brainyquote)
