Paula Deen
If you're dining with someone who wants the same cut, i

If you’re dining with someone who wants the same cut, it’s always better to get a 16-ounce steak and split it than to order two eight-ounce steaks. The longer something cooks, the more flavor it develops, so you’ll get a better taste with a bigger piece of meat.

Ruth Negga
Benefits should be conferred gradually; and in that way they will taste better.
Niccolo Machiavelli
For the first time in my life I tried whale. It was very chewy and quite fatty. My friend had had whale before, so I knew it would be quite blubbery. It was delicious. I loved it.

Sylvester Stallone
Everyone can guess what ‘Corn Flakes’ tastes like, even if you’ve never had them. But what, pray tell, does ‘High School Musical’ or ‘Spider-Man’ cereal possibly taste like? In this late era, we have reached the ultimate deracination between product image and what actually sits on our spoon.

The thing we call critics are not really reviewers, they are not really critics. They don’t have the discipline to write what we would term as critique – it’s really just reviewers.

Ang Lee
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are two peas in the same pod, and the American people have tasted that, and said, ‘Look, that’s not a good taste.’

I used to go with him and I’d sometimes play, take over from him. That was my first taste of the music business, I suppose, but I was also in the youth orchestra at Johnston Grammar.

Evelyn Waugh
I am perfectly willing for my music to exist with somebody else’s taste.

People should have literary and cultural taste and should not bomb hotels.

Alexandra Shipp
One of the things I do as a food writer is to take a classic recipe made with meat, look at it a whole lot, and tinker with it according to my taste.
Crescent Dragonwagon
A classic man is a distinguished man. He cares about taste and his craft. He’s all about the simple model that I live by – eat, drink, be swanky, and have fun getting the job done. He makes sure that he’s excellent in all things and that he cares about his neighborhood immensely.
Jidenna

The fame you earn has a different taste from the fame t

The fame you earn has a different taste from the fame that is forced upon you.
Gloria Vanderbilt
There seems to be a real taste for the fantastical these days. People like to get back into their imaginations. Maybe there’s something a little nostalgic about ‘Grimm’ and the fairy tales that they grew up with. And it’s a very unique approach to the procedural side of things.

I’m like a monk with a taste for hookers.

Avicii
Everybody was trying to put me in action movies and heroic roles, and I wanted to find more complex things. They just didn’t suit my taste, so I thought, ‘OK, I have to be brave enough to say no.’ And for a while, that hurt me immeasurably in the Hollywood world.

I like my coffee sweet and creamy, that’s why I drink Great Taste White.
Liza Soberano
Romance and novel paint beauty in colors more charming than nature, and describe a happiness that humans never taste. How deceptive and destructive are those pictures of consummate bliss!

Drew Barrymore
I’m a big fan of soups and stews because you can throw everything in a slow cooker and leave it there for hours. They taste great in containers, too, because they sit in the fridge, and the flavors meld overnight.

Malin Akerman
By the time of the Civil War, there were many kinds of apples growing across the United States, but most of them didn’t taste very good, and as a rule, people didn’t eat them.

John Seabrook
But I have bad taste with a deep fount of intellectuality.
Mel Brooks
People often say that videogames made by Western developers are somehow different in terms of taste for the players, in comparison with Japanese games. I think that means that the Western developers and Japanese developers, they are good at different fields.

My favorite film is ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’ My writing, and my personal taste in movies and books, tends toward works with a darker tone, and ‘Empire’ fits that the best of all the movies.

I have a certain taste, and I might be like, ‘I like this,’ when other people are like, ‘I can’t wear that.’ And in basketball, I might be able to do things other guys might not.

Steven Spielberg
I see myself as an arbiter of taste.

Maurice Sendak
My wife has her stuff and her taste, and I have my stuff and my taste.

Sue Perkins
Everyone has their own taste, and you can argue about taste.
Niko Kovac
We shall suffer no attachment to literature, no taste f

We shall suffer no attachment to literature, no taste for abstract discussion, no love of purely intellectual theories, to seduce us from our devotion to the cause of the oppressed, the down trodden, the insulted and injured masses of our fellow men.
George Ripley
My mom told us that we should have good shoes, a good suit, and a watch, so I was running around at age 10 looking like a little old man. But somehow I grew to understand that a watch is a representation of myself, of my culture, taste, awareness and aesthetic.
Aldis Hodge
While I don’t script and I don’t use other performers, I think my taste for underlying precision gives me something in common with Allan and George Brecht.
David Antin
Most of the catfish you find at the fish counter has been farmed. Though I usually prefer to buy and eat wild fish, farmed catfish taste cleaner, without the muddy taste of their wild relatives.

I drink coffee for the taste, because if I want energy I’ll just chug a Red Bull or something.

No, I’ve never competed. I did, however, train in a boxing gym with a good coach beginning in 1993. I’d been writing about the sport for a dozen years by then and wanted to know what boxers endured, what it felt like. I was too old to compete when I started, but I sparred enough to get a taste.
Katherine Dunn
The product of extraordinary wealth allied to a taste for the sumptuous.
R. W. Apple, Jr.
I should probably confess that ice cream is my favorite food, and I eat it every night. When I go grocery shopping, I try to buy a new flavor, rather than reverting back to a favorite flavor. I’m on a mission to taste every flavor of ice cream out there!
Becca Fitzpatrick
Surely it is one of the simplest laws of taste in dress, that it shall not attract undue attention from the wearer to the worn.
Elizabeth Stuart Phelps
‘Sunspring,’ the first known screenplay written by an AI, was produced recently. It is awesome. Awesomely awful. But it’s worth watching all ten minutes of it to get a taste of the gap between a great screenplay and something an AI can currently produce.
Brad Feld
My reputation was built on hostility. I had no friends and some very virulent enemies in the old-guard art scene when I began. They threw their heavy artillery against me. They were convinced I was perverting the public taste.
Betty Parsons
When I’m being funny, I try not to offend. I don’t think much of what I’ve done has been in really ghastly taste. I don’t think I have embarrassed many people or distressed them.
Kurt Vonnegut
A taste for truth at any cost is a passion which spares nothing.
Albert Camus
My taste changes radically all the time, and I listen to whatever feels good. Another thing is that I’m in the studio so much of the time, and I listen to so much loud, aggressive music for work, that for pleasure, I’ll listen to something else.

Otto Penzler
Taste is so much more important than fashion.
Hattie Carnegie
I don’t have a Madonna-sized fan base, so I can actually e-mail and talk to everyone that e-mails me because I am totally appreciative, and I like my fans! They seem to have the same interests as me. They are kind of nerdy and cool – and have good taste, obviously.
Jill Sobule
Taste as you go. When you taste the food throughout the cooking process you can make adjustments as you go.
Anne Burrell
Sid Vicious began the age of participation in which everyone could be the artist. Sid proved that you don’t have to play well to be the star. You can play badly, or not even at all. I endorsed that attitude. If you can’t write songs, no problem – simply steal one and change it to your taste.
Malcolm Mclaren
You have to approach something with indifference, as if you had no aesthetic emotion. The choice of readymades is always based on visual indifference and, at the same time, on the total absence of good or bad taste.

You have to always work against what you did before, and even against your taste.
Miuccia Prada
Whatever I write has to evolve around my taste in music at that moment, because that always changes.

Sheena Iyengar
I consider myself very lucky, essentially – I was put into a pop group even though my musical taste was very niche before.
Zayn Malik
Salt is one of the flavors that makes food taste good – salt, sugar and fat. So it’s a natural thing for all chefs and cooks to add salt, because it enhances the flavor of the food. If you go out to eat, I guarantee you’re going to be eating a lot of salted foods that you are going to have no idea.
Brett Hoebel
The line between humor and bad taste is your audience,

The line between humor and bad taste is your audience, in which some people will find everything offensive, and some people will find nothing offensive, but the truth is that most humor originates in what would be called bad taste.
Robert Mankoff
They are much to be pitied who have not been given a taste for nature early in life.

Hjalmar Branting
There is certainly a part of my filmmaking that harkens to a more simpler commercial kind of taste, but then with this there’s certainly a kind of avant-garde, abstract, existential element to it.
J. C. Chandor
I’ve had my taste of intense fame, and I’ve got it out of my system. Now I’m free to choose parts which fulfil me in different ways.

Rihanna
Rat Records in Camberwell is where most of my record collection has come from. It’s like someone with my exact taste in music has handed them all their old vinyl.

Like any traveler, I’m always looking for those experiences that are almost unique to any place, and watching films around Alaska of the skies in winter made me want to taste those unworldly showers of light in person.
Pico Iyer
Truly, from a very early age, I started distancing myself from other kids, not out of willingness, but just out of the nature of my energy. I liked to do things solely, and I already had a taste of the quest for perfection, which is unusual in a little kid.
Philippe Petit
And I liked pluralist Australia. I got a taste for pluralist Australia. I like, I like Australians and I can’t believe that they’re going to go to hell because they tell a good dirty joke, you know.
Thomas Keneally
The pocket square, properly contrived, finishes a man’s look. With good tailoring and well chosen neckwear, the look connotes power, taste, refinement, manners. The naked pocket connotes the opposite: working class, tasteless, base, crude, ignorant.
Roger Stone
Bad taste creates many more millionaires than good taste.
Charles Bukowski
The liberal professions, and in a wider sense the well-to-do classes, are certainly those with the liveliest taste for knowledge and the most active intellectual life.
Emile Durkheim
That survival instinct, that will to live, that need to get back to life again, is more powerful than any consideration of taste, decency, politeness, manners, civility. Anything. It’s such a powerful force.
Danny Boyle
They say that our sense of smell is one of the strongest triggers of memories. Of course, our sense of smell is integral to our sense of taste, so it is no surprise, then, that in a life full of moving and traveling, food has always been a source of familiar comfort for me.
Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
Give us this day our daily taste. Restore to us soups that spoons will not sink in and sauces which are never the same twice. Raise up among us stews with more gravy than we have bread to blot it with Give us pasta with a hundred fillings.
Robert Farrar Capon
The simpler the food, the harder it is to prepare it well. You want to truly taste what it is you’re eating. So that goes back to the trend of fine ingredients. It’s very Japanese: Preparing good ingredients very simply, without distractions from the flavor of the ingredient itself.
Joel Robuchon
Part of what makes a great chef is the ability to adapt, cook, and to taste. A great chef will use all their food knowledge, food memories, and senses to work with each ingredient and apply themselves to the dish they are creating.
Johnny Iuzzini
The less you do to beautiful food, the better it’s going to taste. You don’t need to mess with it all the time.
Gail Simmons
Objections to verbification in English tend to be motivated by personal taste, not clarity. Verbed words are usually easily understood. When a word like ‘friend’ is declared not a verb, the problem isn’t that it’s confusing; it’s that the protester finds it deeply annoying.
Erin McKean
I periodically realize every few years that the only person whose taste I really trust is me.
Brian Eno
Although a crisp texture is the single most prized quality in an apple – even more desirable than taste, according to one study – crispness is more a matter of acoustics than of mouth feel.
John Seabrook
My first job with a network was ‘General Hospital,’ and that was ABC. I feel like I have so much history with them, that they treat their shows well and they have good, discerning taste.

I have a very eclectic taste when it comes to music.
Priyanka Chopra
A lot of my friends hate my music. I have weird taste.

I don’t want the World Dream Orchestra to be like a dessert whose taste is instantly forgotten as soon as you leave the restaurant.
Joe Hisaishi
I want to safeguard the value of lunch. For me, it is sacred. My family and I always have lunch and dinner together. And we always sit down. Food does not taste the same if you are standing up!
Brunello Cucinelli
You never want to sound bitter about critics, because t

You never want to sound bitter about critics, because they’re entitled to do their job, too, but I place much more trust in a person who I can look in the eye and someone who I know I share some kind of taste with – so my friends, for instance. For me, a critic is unknown and therefore irrelevant.
Laura Donnelly
While soy milk is an acquired taste, I prefer almond, cashew and coconut milk.
Ayesha Takia
Yes, I was correctly quoted in saying I introduced sex into films in the 20’s, but it was sex in good taste and left a great deal to one’s imagination.
Pola Negri
If you are killing a chicken and cooking a chicken, it has to taste like chicken. Veal has to taste like veal. You have to be able to identify what you’re eating. One of my worst experiences is when I can’t tell what I’m eating. It is a waste.
Joel Robuchon
Menswear is about subtlety. It’s about good style and good taste.
Alexander McQueen
Fashion and music are two great artistic forms that can be molded by the youth culture – our taste and our passion for evolving things in our limited time on earth allows us to look at things with fresh eyes.
Virgil Abloh
I don’t mind bees and think we are all the better for having them around. I like the taste of honey.
Henry Rollins
Cooking is not difficult. Everyone has taste, even if they don’t realize it. Even if you’re not a great chef, there’s nothing to stop you understanding the difference between what tastes good and what doesn’t.
Gerard Depardieu
Sometimes sushi is just superb, and other times there’s nothing like a great big steak. It depends where your taste buds are at the time.
Francesca Annis
Most of the bad taste I’ve been accused of has been generic bad taste; it’s been making fun of an idea as opposed to a person.
John Cleese
No taste is so acquired as that for someone else’s quality of mind.
Cyril Connolly
It’s bad taste to be wise all the time, like being at a perpetual funeral.
D. H. Lawrence
I think you have to judge everything based on your personal taste. And if that means being critical, so be it. I hate political correctness. I absolutely loathe it.
Simon Cowell
Clothes have become more personal, more a matter of very individual taste.
Issey Miyake
I understand that some fans want to express their feelings with signs, and they should do so, as long as they stay within the boundaries of good taste and don’t block the view of other fans.
Daniel Snyder
Look, taste is clearly the crudest of our senses: this is scientifically, objectively factual. It is less nuanced. Eyesight is extraordinary – hearing, touch. I find people who devote their whole lives to taste a little strange.
Jonathan Safran Foer
My style can’t be held within a pixel medium. Like, it needs to be performed in a living, breathing space. People need to have all their senses ready to take on my comedy, and unfortunately, TV alienates at least their sense of touch, taste, smell.
Kristen Schaal
I want to give people a taste of the Caribbean, and show them the fun side of me.
Rihanna
In recent years, I’ve been writing because I’m fortunate enough to work in the world of food television, to travel and taste and learn about cooking from the best chefs in the business.
Ted Allen
I love things that are indescribable, like the taste of an avocado or the smell of a gardenia.
Barbra Streisand
Health food may be good for the conscience but Oreos taste a hell of a lot better.
Robert Redford
I’ve listened to Eminem rap. That’s not daily fare for me, but I can’t help but admire how vivid what he does is. My own taste goes a little more toward Norah Jones.
Lesley Gore
I hope that if you are employed full-time, you are doing it to ensure that basic needs are met and not simply to indulge a taste for an elaborate home, fancy cars, and other luxuries.
Gordon B. Hinckley
I’ve always described my taste in fashion and music as being very eclectic and uniquely based off my feelings that day. That’s the wonderful thing about style. You can be whatever you want to be. You can describe yourself however you want to describe yourself.
Hayden Panettiere
I just usually go with my own taste. If I like something, and it happens to be against the law, well, then I might have a problem.
Hunter S. Thompson
I find that Americans completely lack sensibility and good taste. They are boring, and they all have faces like unbaked rolls.
Frida Kahlo
I actually get a metallic taste in my mouth when I think about electric music.
Keith Jarrett
Ultimately, taste is so niche and so personal.
Dana Goodyear
It was so much fun to play, that I’ve now had a taste for it and want to play more villains now.
Piper Perabo
I think that style, taste, and choices in general are forged by everything that surrounds you – everything you see, taste, touch, smell and hear. So of course, my family has influenced me as a person and in my own style, but so have all the experiences that I went through as an individual.
Margherita Missoni
There’s obviously a group who enjoys what Tyler Perry is putting out there. And why fault them? And there’s a group that loves the things that Spike does. So they should enjoy that, too. Is it my taste? Maybe not, but I’m not going to fault anybody for doing what they’re doing as long as people are showing up.
Wanda Sykes
I like an English sense of humor: dry, dirty, a little

I like an English sense of humor: dry, dirty, a little bit off. That’s kind of my taste.
Brooklyn Decker
I have a real eclectic taste for work, for movies, for characters and jobs.
Ricky Schroder
I don’t let it bother me too much if someone doesn’t like me. I just figure there’s no accounting for taste. It’s not me, it’s my acting. It’s like if someone doesn’t like someone’s food, they just don’t like my acting.
Anna Chlumsky
I don’t have bad taste; I have no taste. I wear a lot of the things I wore in high school, but not the cowl-neck sweaters. I was never tall, and I am the same size, so I still wear a lot of those clothes.
Kara Swisher
I’m not a fan of grilling meat, since that tends to dry it out, and I find grill marks leave a bitter taste. A good steak house will offer different options for preparation, and I would ask them to broil or pan-roast the steak and finish it with butter. It ends up a dark chocolate color and stays very juicy.
Tom Colicchio
My musical taste is like a 16-year-old girl’s when it comes to working out – Rihanna, Black Eyed Peas, Miley Cyrus. I love it all!
Jessica Capshaw
Eating something fresh out of the oven is like a hug you can taste.
Regina Brett
It just comes down to taste at the end of the day, and that’s something you can’t really analyze. Yeah, I think to have it all there is basically best, regardless of whether there’s hiss there as well.
Sean Booth
We know that genes shape human cultures and human societies: The DNA we inherited from our ancestors makes certain foods taste better, affects the way we care for children, influences what colors we find vibrant, and contributes to our love of socializing, among other examples.
Sam Kean
Bob Barr is not crazy enough for my taste.
Penn Jillette
Close friends contribute to our personal growth. They also contribute to our personal pleasure, making the music sound sweeter, the wine taste richer, the laughter ring louder because they are there.
Judith Viorst
I love the fact that no one’s ever bought my record because they were enamoured of the way I look. Maybe one person. There must be someone out there with compromised taste.
Moby
A pit bull is like a fighter. Every so often it needs to taste blood.
Barry McGuigan
We eat the same breakfast every day. We are like robots. I always do two eggs over easy with turkey bacon – we enjoy the taste of it more than pork – and avocado. I carve it all up into a bowl so it’s like a slop, and I load it with salt and pepper and Cholula.
Chrissy Teigen
In the sago palms, you’ll often find sago beetles which are about the size of your little finger. The Karowai put those on the fire until they’re crispy and eat them. They taste a little bit like creamy snails. But compared to sago, the sago beetle is really pretty good.
Tim Cahill
There was no relationship between a wedding dress and fashion. There was no good taste, either. I realized that I could make an impression in terms of changing and readdressing the whole industry of bridal.
Vera Wang
I imagine a child. That child is me. I can reconstruct and vividly remember portions of my own childhood. I can see, taste, smell, feel, and hear them. Then what I do is, not write about that kid or about his world, but start to think of a book that would have pleased him.
Daniel Pinkwater
You’ve got to change with the public’s taste.
Nat King Cole
Everybody has their own taste, and I allow for that, but personally, I don’t like a striped tie on a striped shirt. I don’t like brown shoes with a blue suit. Cordovan maybe, but not brown.
Alec Baldwin
My first job was scooping ice cream at Friendly’s in Albany, New York. I hated the work, most of my colleagues, and the uniform, and I more or less lost my taste for ice cream permanently.
Gregory Maguire
A lot of the other companies in the space have really left a bad taste in regulators’ mouths. It’s actually been a huge advantage when we come in and we take the time to sit down and get to know them, explain the business, explain what we do.
Logan Green
A good espresso to me is a little bit salty; you just become used to a good taste. Anytime I go into a new place and they don’t clean their machine properly or the water temperature isn’t right, it tastes awful.
Andrew Bird
Today not even a universal fire could make the torrential poetic production of our time disappear. But it is exactly a question of production, that is, of hand-made products which are subject to the laws of taste and fashion.
Eugenio Montale
Errors of taste are very often the outward sign of a deep fault of sensibility.
Jonathan Miller
I’m so in love with the United States. Not as a patriot. I’m in love with America like it’s my first girlfriend. The geography, the people, the smell, the touch, the taste, the gas stations. I’m madly in love with America.
Vincent Gallo
I try to make the songs as good as I can – the way I like it, you know? And I guess my taste sometimes happens to be what other people, particularly radio programmers, like too.
Max Martin
I think an art collection is a lot like a diary. Your taste evolves with time. I try to never sell anything, because it’s part of my journey.
Delphine Arnault
Things taste less salty when they’re cool.
Samin Nosrat
We never taste happiness in perfection, our most fortunate successes are mixed with sadness.
Pierre Corneille
I like a bit of chocolate as much as the next person, but cheese is a complete world on its own. The sheer variety is staggering and there’s always going to be a cheese to tickle your taste buds.
Ainsley Harriott
I don’t deviate – once you get validated for being you, I don’t know why you would deviate. I stick to my gut and my taste.
Russ
We have developed a culture in which we eat with our ta

We have developed a culture in which we eat with our taste buds, not our brains.
David H. Murdock
Never be tempted by water. The water tap should be sealed at lunchtime. If, for example, a sauce goes wrong, adding water doesn’t help at all; one only achieves a taste of dishwater.
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
Between good sense and good taste there lies the difference between a cause and its effect.
Jean de la Bruyere
I’m not Ang Lee who knows so much about western market and the taste of western audiences.
Zhang Yimou
I don’t have a very ‘masculine’ taste in music. I get a lot of heat from my friends about that.
Matthew Perry
The male gay community seems to be very into female singers. I think it could be the songs we sing. They’re more open with their feelings. And they have good taste!
Liza Minnelli
Narrativity presumes a special taste for plot. And this taste for plot was always very present in the Anglo-Saxon countries and that explains their high quality of detective novels.
Umberto Eco
People call things ‘vulgar’ when they are new to them. When they have become old, they become ‘good taste.’
Mary Quant
The more you pander to what is, presumably, the taste of young people, the more you corrupt.
Ruth Rendell
The great fights with your strongest rivals are always the biggest motivation. When you win easily it’s not the same taste.
Valentino Rossi
I have never, ever, had an acting partnership that was a safe, as full, and as exciting as the one I had with Tony. I didn’t want to go through life without having a chance to taste it again.
Genie Francis
Every year, my father comes by and samples the chremslach – like quality control – and tells me how they taste just like his mother’s.
Gil Marks
I guess my music taste is pretty predictable: I like new indie rock stuff, older stuff.
Aziz Ansari
I have a low taste for urban fantasy and paranormal romance.
Charles Stross
We have lost the taste for the real.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
A bad or mediocre meal is more than just an unpleasant taste, it is an unnecessary negation of one of life’s pleasures – a wasted chance to refine our palates, learn about the world, and share a rewarding experience.
Tyler Cowen
The difference with Cleveland is that the racial tension was not a casual taste of it. It was outlandish.
Terrence Howard
Taste and love are not the servants of the will. Love is and must be free. It rises from the heart like perfume from a flower.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Since the composer has said everything, if you discover everything, it will be enough and you will be a happy man. Don’t try to say it’s your taste, and because of that you are changing this or that. And I must say this respect is still there.
Kurt Masur
I have terrible taste in things: music, movies, TV shows. I love all the guilty pleasures: Bravo, ‘Real Housewives.’
Grace Helbig
On some subconscious level, I’ve been prejudiced against turnips, parsnips, swedes and other roots. Do they taste of much? Are they really special? How wrong I was.
Yotam Ottolenghi
Every drummer that had a name, had a name because of his individual playing. He didn’t sound like anybody else, So everybody that I ever listened to, in some form, influenced my taste.
Buddy Rich
Like a lot of snackers, I recognized that snacking is an indulgence and is all about taste.
Keith Belling
And so, when I was a young writer I always worked hard on imagery, and I knew that the roots of imagery were the senses – and that if my readers could feel, taste and see what I was talking about, I would be able to tell them a story.
Adriana Trigiani
I had the impression from reading English literature that British women were great beauties, and I only had seen Julie Christie, and she was gorgeous and sexy. I don’t know whether it was just my taste, but when I got to London, I went two years without seeing a truly attractive woman. A lot of near misses.
Walter Kirn
I could say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and that never changes. But the taste for art did change.
Susan Vreeland
On its self-titled debut, Happy Birthday flirts with several flavors of love, and ‘Girls FM’ is where taste gets confusing.
Anthony Fantano
The cold, mean ‘Sunset Boulevard’ – a beautiful title, though I suspect it was shot on another boulevard – is further proof of the resurgence of art in the Hollywood of super-craftsmen with insuperable taste.
Manny Farber
‘Vacation’ means titillating my taste buds.
Brett Ratner
I live in a country where music has very little success, though, exclusive of those who have forsaken us, we have still admirable professors and, more particularly, composers of great solidity, knowledge, and taste.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
I love my garlic press; in fact, it is probably my one true desert island gadget. But I’m happy to put it aside whenever the smell and sweet taste of slow-cooked garlic is called for.
Yotam Ottolenghi
Genuine good taste consists in saying much in few words

Genuine good taste consists in saying much in few words, in choosing among our thoughts, in having order and arrangement in what we say, and in speaking with composure.
Francois Fenelon
Every sense has the power to transport us through time, but it’s taste I find the most mysterious, and writing about it often results in tortured metaphors.
Rumaan Alam
The thing is I’m very interested in bad taste, as anyone who’s ever seen me perform or had dinner with me would know.
Tom Baker
Aside from ROH, just getting a taste of Wrestle Kingdom at the Tokyo Dome with NJPW has me really excited at the prospect of furthering and developing my career in Japan.
Adam Cole
The taste of defeat has a richness of experience all its own.
Bill Bradley
We’re in a period where society seems very attracted to flash, and that seeps into people’s musical taste.
K. D. Lang
If the FBI is now in charge of bad taste, we’re all doomed.
Jerry Della Femina
Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.
William Shakespeare
I wanted to find a way to merge my taste as an art and creative director with my new little obsessions: babies and motherhood and all of that. So I began working on my website, Romy and the Bunnies, which is named after my daughter, Romy.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld
It’s odd, because I used to see pictures, on telly or wherever, of what I now know to be Shaftesbury Avenue and I used to wonder what that amazing street with all the lights was. Well, now I know. I think when you get a wee taste of something, it maybe isn’t what you thought it was.
Shirley Henderson
Well, I’m a writer by nature, and I got a little bit – a little taste of a daily fast-paced writing job, writing career, and I loved it.
Victoria Gotti
I think things that are really, really not good are easy to see. But films that are decent can either be made good or great based on the execution. At the end of the day, it’s always a crapshoot about the execution, the level of taste, in any department.
Jason Bateman
Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness.
Rumi
I learned to surf for ‘Soul Surfer.’ Surfing is like golf: You’re always battling, and it keeps knocking you down. There are a lot of wipeouts. But when you stay with it and catch that wave, you really taste it. It’s magic.
Dennis Quaid
Nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public.
H. L. Mencken
The idea that women journalists bring a different taste in stories or sensibility isn’t true.
Jill Abramson
You walk off the plane in Rio, and your blood temperature goes up. The feel of the wind on your face, the water on your skin, the taste of the food, the music, the sexuality; Brazilians are very comfortable in their sexuality.
Amy Irving
It’s very much a piece of myself when I write a song. I don’t mean to say it’s very personal, like the lyrics mean something personal to me. When I write a song, that’s my taste in music – my taste in chord progressions and melodies.
Zooey Deschanel
I feel like everyone directs their own career according to their taste, what they migrate to emotionally and what kind of artists they want to work with. And I’m lucky enough to be in a position where I can wait six months for a project that really interests me.
Kirsten Dunst
My style is very inspired by both my parents, so we all have the same taste.
Zoe Kravitz
In the heyday of the Oscars, there were electric sparks flying. When Cher went in her fabulous Bob Mackie dress and her Mohawk, and Bjoerk with her swan dress. Then we thought it was bad taste; now I think it should have been the best dress because she stood out.
Andre Leon Talley
Designs in connection with postage stamps and coinage may be described, I think, as the silent ambassadors on national taste.
William Butler Yeats
I turned down some movies that were quite good. mainly on the basis of taste.
Dick Van Dyke
Just because you liked something as a youngster doesn’t mean you have to like it as an adult. You can change your taste a little bit on the sweets and things like that.
Mike Ditka
First, I eat healthy; it comes from the inside out. If you eat right, your skin, hair, nails will look good. The same if you have negative thoughts – they can give you a bad look, too; we reflect what we eat and think. We also taste and smell what we eat. Being happy and doing what I love really reflects.
Kate del Castillo
When I first started cooking, I was very much an intuitive cook when it came to taste, but that didn’t mean I didn’t want to know why some things worked and why others did not. My interest took me to culinary school.
Carla Hall
As a child, the person I admired most in the world was Lana Turner! She seemed the epitome of glamour, and her glitzy surroundings so enviable, the opposite of my mother’s extremely banal taste.
Lee Radziwill
I will pursue my passion of cooking every day until my hands fall off and I lose all sense of smell and taste.
Nicole Trunfio
I don’t have lavish taste.
Taylor Kinney
Definitely, as I get older and my taste buds change, I want to do different things. I’m not ready for directing yet, you know, maybe when I get my big boy voice; I don’t have that yet, but right now definitely producing for sure.
Michael B. Jordan
Fashion is here to help make people look very important. If they have good taste and choose what suits them, I give them options on how they can do that. It’s always sexy, and it’s always with the same result: making women look fantastic.
Vivienne Westwood
My musical taste has always been wide. I started out as

My musical taste has always been wide. I started out as a folky before I moved on to blues and soul.
Rod Stewart
I am an atheist. I was born a Catholic, but after I had traveled to Northern Ireland with some Catholic friends, and we had a horrible experience with the English Protestant police, I lost all taste for formal religion.
Guy Laliberte
There is no such thing as a bad beer. It’s that some taste better than others.
Billy Carter
Surfing is like golf: You’re always battling, and it keeps knocking you down. There are a lot of wipeouts. But when you stay with it and catch that wave, you really taste it. It’s magic.
Dennis Quaid
If you want to know the taste of a pear, you must change the pear by eating it yourself. If you want to know the theory and methods of revolution, you must take part in revolution. All genuine knowledge originates in direct experience.
Mao Zedong
I wanted to give people a taste of my own music through the sound and style of my covers.
Birdy
People pull away from something if it’s not of good taste. People lean into something if it’s okay.
Michael Patrick King
A graduate student who is still learning courses is not really taking a maximum advantage of a research university’s offerings. He should already be finished with course-taking, as he would then be able to shape his own taste about what is a good subject for research work in the graduate school.
Chen-Ning Yang
The great problem was the selection of the readymade. I needed to choose an object without it impressing me: that is to say, without it providing any sort of aesthetic delectation. Moreover, I needed to reduce my own personal taste to absolute zero.
Marcel Duchamp
I have a crusade against fondant, also shortening. There’s no reason why wedding cakes can’t taste good if you know what you’re doing.
Ron Ben-Israel
To possess taste, one must have some soul.
Luc de Clapiers
The main business of religions is to purify, control, and restrain that excessive and exclusive taste for well-being which men acquire in times of equality.
Alexis de Tocqueville
In this life, you should read everything you can read. Taste everything you can taste. Meet everyone you can meet. Travel everywhere you can travel. Learn everything you can learn. Experience everything you can experience.
Mario Cuomo
I love to cook, and my wife loves to cook. Sometimes it’s the appeal of the simplest of dishes – things you’ve grown up with in your life. Your emotional memory – something that not only affects your taste buds but that you’ve got an emotional attachment to.
Andy Garcia
I like an interesting movie even if it’s controversial or offensive, depending on your taste.
Adam Brody
The trick is to have my own particular taste and feel for the theater to audiences who have been used to one particular style and taste for nearly 40 years.
Michael Ritchie
When I listen to President Obama speak to and about women, he sometimes sounds too paternalistic for my taste.
Campbell Brown
Theologically, the creation of chocolate demonstrates both the unity and the diversity of humanity. Wherever you taste it, in every country of the world, it is immediately recognizable. Other things, in every cuisine, are just food, but chocolate is chocolate.
David Augsburger
It’s important for people who criticise architects – whether what they build is or isn’t to your taste – to appreciate how they devote themselves and put everything into bringing a building into existence.
Thomas Heatherwick
I have lexical-gustatory synesthesia. I can taste, and always have tasted, words. I remember when I was a kid and learning to read I mentioned to my mom that certain words I was learning tasted certain ways, thinking everyone was like that, and didn’t understand why she didn’t get what I was saying.
Kat Timpf
My first taste memory is pickle. Even as a kid, I was really weird. I liked chillis. I used to climb up the shelves in my grandmother’s pantry. The pickle jar was kept right at the top. One time, I dropped the jar and it broke. I was totally busted.
Padma Lakshmi
If you like my novels, I commend your good taste.
Rita Mae Brown
Courtship is like simmering mutton. You cook for hours and hours to taste the soft meat. It doesn’t happen in two seconds!
Nargis Fakhri
I’m a passionate Welshman. I have a culinary relationship with language: I taste what I say because I have two languages, and each informs the other.
Rhys Ifans
You know, we don’t have any decorative sprigs of rosemary; we’re not placing little matchstick radishes onto an hors d’oeuvre… The food’s gotta taste good. The concept’s gotta taste good.
Nadia Giosia
Experience teaches that when the will and imagination are in conflict, the imagination usually wins. What we imagine may defeat our reason and make us slaves to what we taste, see, hear, smell, and feel in the mind’s eye. The body is indeed the servant of the mind.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
The blueberry-soy weight-loss smoothies my son makes for me taste terrible, but my doctor says they’re good for me.
Sirio Maccioni
I remember the Neil Young brand hitting me very hard immediately. He wasn’t an acquired taste. I loved him immediately.
Jonathan Demme
The role of a museum of modern art is to make a good selection and identify what we believe to be the coming movements, and that requires taste.
David Rockefeller
When you have a life-threatening illness like cancer, and you’re faced with the alternative, it gives doing whatever it is you do a much sweeter taste.
Ronnie Montrose
You can’t legislate good taste.
George Clooney
'Under the Poppy' is the love story of Istvan and Ruper

‘Under the Poppy’ is the love story of Istvan and Rupert, lovers and friends from childhood, who’ve been parted by jealousy – and a secret betrayal by Istvan’s sister, Decca, who also loves Rupert, with whom she runs the brothel called Under the Poppy, where the floozies cater to every taste from saucy to peculiar.
Kathe Koja
I can go into a restaurant; I might have to go a few times, taste something, love it and figure out exactly what is in there, and go home and duplicate it.
Tamala Jones
Kudos to people who put themselves forward as the arbiters of taste.
Leon Max
Chocolate’s okay, but I prefer a really intense fruit taste. You know when a peach is absolutely perfect… it’s sublime. I’d like to capture that and then use it in a dessert.
Kathy Mattea
If we are going to ask for our daily bread, we’ve got to take the time to receive it and eat it. God provide, but we’ve got to slow down long enough to taste and see.
Glennon Doyle Melton
You have to build up to green smoothies. Everyone loves fruit smoothies: you can add a handful of baby spinach to a fruit smoothie and may hardly even taste it. Next, try two. Slowly, your taste buds can adapt to more greens.
Michael Greger
If a reviewer is beating me up, I just say, ‘Oh well, my writing is not to his or her taste.’ And that’s as far as it goes. Because I will simultaneously read a review where somebody says, ‘Oh my God, I had so much fun reading this book and I learned so much.’
Dan Brown
Nowhere probably is there more true feeling, and nowhere worse taste, than in a churchyard.
Benjamin Jowett
I heard ‘Get Lucky’; it’s just not my taste. It’s great what Daft Punk does and the sound quality is great, but that whole disco vibe is not really my thing.
Tiesto
What makes Harlem special is that at any given time, food seekers can not only find food deeply rooted in Southern, Latin and African traditions, but also can taste the newer Senegalese, Chinese, and Italian influences as well.
Marcus Samuelsson
Bipartisanship is really tough to achieve when everyone on both sides is left with a bad, bad taste in their mouths.
Campbell Brown
Exposing yourself to many kinds of art can only lead to amazing things. It helps you learn about your own art, your own taste, what kind of art you want to create for yourself.
Phillipa Soo
I am not a music snob. If anything, my musical taste is bad by any critical standards.
Michael Ian Black
I love to put on lotion. Sometimes I’ll watch TV and go into a lotion trance for an hour. I try to find brands that don’t taste bad in case anyone wants to taste me.
Angelina Jolie
I love judging food by its smell and feel and taste. The healthiest tomato isn’t always the perfect one that’s been covered in pesticides.
Sheherazade Goldsmith
The Nazz survived for 18 months – that was my first taste of fame on some level and of the overall experience of being in a band. There are good and bad aspects, and I got to taste some of both, and, well, it’s not as much fun as what you see in ‘A Hard Day’s Night,’ let me just say that.
Todd Rundgren
There is a diversity of thought and philosophy, diversity of languages and dialects, diversity of political spectrum, and there’s a diversity of taste for food. I don’t label or characterize Jews in any way.
John Liu
I moved to L.A. after my landlord in Brooklyn tripled my rent. I spent months looking for other places to move to in New York, then one day I was in California eating a grapefruit, and I was like, ‘This is what they taste like?’ So I decided to move to L.A. and build a studio in my house.
Dave Sitek
With food, you’re the artist; you put the colour in it, you present it to the table and it has the ability to knock out the senses. It can look fabulous, be beautifully presented and smell great and taste good as well.
Anthony Warlow
If the coffee can taste so good with nothing else in it, then that’s a good cup of coffee.
Bayley
I will never permit myself to give in to American taste and lower the standards of art.
Sholom Aleichem
By the late Nineties, we had become a more visual nation. Big-money taste moved to global standards – new architecture, design and show-off contemporary art. The Sloane domestic aesthetic – symmetry, class symbolism and brown furniture – became as unfashionable as it had been hot in the early Eighties.
Peter York
To me, food is as much about the moment, the occasion, the location and the company as it is about the taste.
Heston Blumenthal
Get excited and enthusiastic about you own dream. This excitement is like a forest fire – you can smell it, taste it, and see it from a mile away.
Denis Waitley
Much as I cared for Joseph Kennedy, he was a classic example of that person in the arts with lots of brains and drive but little taste or talent.
Gloria Swanson
Exuberance is better than taste.
Gustave Flaubert
The main thing I look for in a recipe is taste, which is different from caterers and restaurants, who first ask ‘How does it look?’
Diane Mott Davidson
High among the unpredictable variables that endanger the survival of worthy buildings are the vagaries of taste.
Martin Filler
The richness of the world, all artificial pleasures, have the taste of sickness and give off a smell of death in the face of certain spiritual possessions.
Georges Rouault
Almost any decent cook will make food by eye and taste. Virtually all of my family cooked that way.
Steve Albini
I’m kind of a mash-up of taste – Graham Greene and Jane Austen; W.G. Sebald and Alice Munro.
Amy Waldman
That's why you can't be a true Yankee without winter: b

That’s why you can’t be a true Yankee without winter: because all the best pleasures are earned – the fire, the fried oysters; the warmer seasons, too. Who knows the real worth of summer at the beach without a good taste of the seaside in winter?
Julia Glass
Everything looks nicer when you win. The girls are prettier. The cigars taste better. The trees are greener.
Billy Martin
Day-old bread? Sadly, in America a lot of day-old bread just becomes nasty. Italian day-old bread, not having any preservatives in it, just becomes harder and it doesn’t taste old. What I would warn people about is getting bread that’s loaded with other things in it, because it starts to taste old.
Mario Batali
Whether I’m making a recipe or a piece of jewelry or a white-rose-and-jasmine tea or the perfume, I like to think of myself as a happy little sorceress, and if I could just have a little general store with all that stuff and give people a sense of my taste, that would be lovely.
Padma Lakshmi
Civilization is merely an advance in taste: accepting, all the time, nicer things, and rejecting nasty ones.
Katharine Elizabeth Fullerton Gerould
As a chef, I love to travel and taste different cuisine styles and different flavours.
Jock Zonfrillo
Know why certain foods, such as truffles, are expensive. It’s not because they taste best.
Marilyn vos Savant
Cooking is about presenting flavors and other aspects of food in a way that makes best use of them and makes an engaging, satisfying meal. Taste necessarily comes into it along with technique. Some ingredients require cooking, cleaning or otherwise denaturing them, some are fine as they are.
Steve Albini
My grandmother used to make the most incredible chicken divan, and my mom has carried out that tradition. It’s my comfort food. It’s amazing how you can almost taste the memories with a dish like that! And the more leftovers, the better.
Tessa Virtue
I really don’t know why Scarlett has such appeal. When I began writing the sequel, I had a lot of trouble because Scarlett is not my kind of person. She’s virtually illiterate, has no taste, never learns from her mistakes.
Alexandra Ripley
My taste in the films I’ve taken as an actor is similar to what I’d do a director or writer: all quite odd, challenging stuff, slightly off-the-wall.
Daniel Radcliffe
I always admired very much the virtuosity in Strauss because, really, he’s a master of using the orchestra. And I like virtuosity, I must say, even if the taste of the music is not always mine.
Pierre Boulez
People wince when something is in bad taste. They laugh when it’s funny. If it’s too dirty or wrong, they won’t laugh. But if it’s a big, dirty, smart, funny laugh, they love it.
Michael Patrick King
Enantiomers often smell and taste differently.
Ryoji Noyori
How can sincerity be a condition of friendship? A taste for truth at any cost is a passion which spares nothing.
Albert Camus
I think decor says a lot about someone’s social position, their taste, their sensibility, their work – and also about the aesthetic way I have chosen to tell their story.
Pedro Almodovar
He who cannot eat horsemeat need not do so. Let him eat pork. But he who cannot eat pork, let him eat horsemeat. It’s simply a question of taste.
Nikita Khrushchev
Growing up, my dad drank a lot of wine, so I got a taste for, and learned how to enjoy it. He spoke a lot about flavors and differences in tastes of wine. Also, our manager, Rick Sales, is a big wine drinker; he goes to a lot of wine-tasting classes, and he’s taught me about the qualities of wine.
Tom Araya
Bad taste is simply saying the truth before it should be said.
Mel Brooks
One of the biggest turnoffs is being presented with an idea that’s already, to a degree, complete. That’s not an adventure, and it’s not a learning experience. It’s more of a chore. Then you become a technician with taste, as opposed to an explorer and an author.
Bennett Miller
I think peas are really nasty. I liked them when I was younger, but I guess when you get older you have different taste buds.
Rico Rodriguez
I never taste the wine first in restaurants, I just ask the waiter to pour.
Nigella Lawson
I do not follow the rules of fashion, and I don’t like to be considered a man of the world of fashion. I like to call it the ‘style industry’ because we try to work on taste.
Lapo Elkann
When I’m in a restaurant, I don’t eat red meat. It doesn’t taste like anything. But if a friend of mine is grilling stuff at his house, its almost always great.
Steve Albini
I used to tell strange, wild, improbable tales akin to ghost stories, and discovered a taste for spinning yarns.
Algernon Blackwood
I’ve been in situations where, in the midst of really hardcore events in my life, I made some ridiculous off-color joke that was in horrible taste, but made people laugh.
Samuel Witwer
For someone in my position, there’s opportunities to be anything you want to be, even if you shouldn’t be eligible, and I think that’s left a bad taste in a lots of financers’ and studios’ mouths. Just cause someone’s popular at one thing, letting them do the other isn’t always the right thing.
Fred Durst
Matters of taste are not, it turns out, moral issues.
Annie Dillard
Hospitality and cooking are my passion, and I love nothing more than seeing someone’s face when they taste an unforgettable bite.
Ayesha Curry
I started rooting – you know, sticking up joints – with some older guys. By now I had gotten a taste of what the racket world really was – the glamour, the way they dressed, the way they always had a pocketful of money.
Mickey Cohen
The danger of growing up surrounded by endless sweet and salty industrial concoctions is not that we are innately incapable of resisting them but that the more frequently we eat them, especially in childhood, the more they train us to expect all food to taste this way.
Bee Wilson
I came literally to the table with a wealth of knowledg

I came literally to the table with a wealth of knowledge by simply understanding how food should taste.
Rocco DiSpirito
I love fashion. For me, it’s always interesting because I like to be able to mix up different styles and different brands, kind of like how my music taste or personality is. There’s lots of influences.
Tinashe
I think I can capture the taste buds of the average right-wing conservative who loves barbecue.
Bobby Seale
You can’t escape the taste of the food you had as a child. In times of stress, what do you dream about? Your mother’s clam chowder. It’s security, comfort. It brings you home.
Jacques Pepin
I don’t have high standards in taste; I prefer soju over wine.
Kim Woo-bin
I’ll let the people decide what they think is good taste.
Eazy-E
I’m meticulous about tasting everything at the restaurant, so I taste all the preparations before lunch and dinner. That means tasting around 50 dishes twice. There are times when I think I can’t taste another thing.
Rick Bayless
It’s a hard thing to legislate. You can’t legislate good taste and you can’t put a number on it in terms of square footage. It’s a question of where individual rights end and community rights begin.
Ann Robinson
It is probably a very good thing for a boy to learn to live with enmity, as opposed to an atmosphere of love and affection, as it hardens him and gives him a taste of what he is going to run into later in life.
Preston Sturges
Some museum boards think that choosing an architect can be reduced to a science, but it comes down to a matter of taste, pure and simple. A shortlist of prospective designers speaks volumes about the likely outcome. If the candidates’ styles are too divergent, the search committee doesn’t know what it wants.
Martin Filler
I believe in singing to such an extent that, if I were asked to redesign the British educational system, I would start by insisting that group singing becomes a central part of the daily routine. I believe it builds character and, more than anything else, encourages a taste for cooperation with others.
Brian Eno
Taste may change, but inclination never.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
There were few people, perhaps, more passionately fond of travelling, and seeing fresh places, and new scenes, than myself; but now, since, by the grace of God, I have seen beauty in the Lord Jesus, I have lost my taste for these things.
George Muller
I just think that gay men have much better taste than any straight man I have met. I have never gotten any grief about having a good time, being unapologetic, and irreverent from a gay man.
Kesha
I don’t limit my taste. There’s some jazz that I like and there’s some opera. I’ve been listening to what was essentially country music, but it crossed over to rock.
Rick Moranis
Newspapers with declining circulations can complain all they want about their readers and even say they have no taste. But you will still go out of business over time. A newspaper is not a public trust – it has a business model that either works or it doesn’t.
Marc Andreessen
Music is how I unwind. I love going to see bands or DJs at a festival or a dive bar. My taste is pretty diverse.
Daniel Ricciardo
Strikes always leave a bad taste with everyone.
Sarah Sutton
I generally find fiction without some move to the weird, less imaginative, dull, prosaic. Not all of it, of course, but a lot of it. I suppose it’s just a question of taste.
Ellen Datlow
People think of poetry as a school subject… Poetry is very frustrating to students because they don’t have a taste for ambiguity, for one thing. That gives them a poetry hangover.
Billy Collins
I voted Republican this year; the Democrats left a bad taste in my mouth.
Monica Lewinsky
That’s the joke about confinement pigs: they taste like whatever sauce you cook them with.
Joel Salatin
The centuries last passed have also given the taste important extension; the discovery of sugar, and its different preparations, of alcoholic liquors, of wine, ices, vanilla, tea and coffee, have given us flavors hitherto unknown.
Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
We need to have a taste factor in our life. It isn’t about what’s popular; it’s about what’s really good.
Robbie Robertson
I think probably Australians have just a little more taste than most people.
Neil Diamond
My child, you are going to be a great king; do not imitate me in the taste I have had for building, or in that I have had for war; try, on the contrary, to be at peace with your neighbors.
Louis XIV
Like regular table salt, MSG can also help boost our perception of other existing flavors. Tomato soup with a pinch of MSG tastes a little more tomato-y. Add a dash to beef stew to make it taste beefier.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
You don’t have to look far to taste some of the best food the world has to offer. I’d pit my grandmother against a 3-star Michelin chef any day.
Nadia Giosia
If you grow up in a very strong religion like Catholicism you certainly cultivate in yourself a certain taste for the intensity of ideas.
Brian Eno
I don’t have very sophisticated taste in music. I listen to a lot of folk music. I like reggae.
Anne Lamott
I would describe Los Angeles as actually not having taste. In New York, there’s taste. But you have to remember that taste is censorship. It’s a form of restriction.
James Turrell
Art school can be a wonderful place if you're trying to

Art school can be a wonderful place if you’re trying to find your voice and your style and your taste.
Abbi Jacobson
There is a lot of stuff now that is in bad taste, and I don’t see the necessity for it all. We didn’t have to do it in our time, and they don’t have to do it now.
Clint Walker
I rise to taste the dawn, and find that love alone will shine today.
Ken Wilber
It’s always great to have things from France at a wedding. It’s symbolic of style, of culture, of taste.
Andre Leon Talley
People care more about being thought to have taste than about being thought either good, clever or amiable.
Samuel Butler
I’m so impressed by Jennifer Lawrence and Carey Mulligan. They have this exquisite taste. They are very gifted in their ability to make great choices.
Claire Danes
I know what my taste is, and I do like my touch on the piano.
Thomas Newman
It’s one thing to know your lines, another to be able to deliver them. The taste of the pudding is in the delivery.
Jeffrey Wright
The ones I pity are the ones who never stick out their neck for something they believe, never know the taste of moral struggle, and never have the thrill of victory.
Jonathan Kozol
I wrote a book called The Taste of New Wine because I couldn’t find a book that talked about the reality of the situation and how we were dishonest and afraid.
Keith Miller
Sometimes it’s more important to be human, than to have good taste.
Bertolt Brecht
You shall find out how salt is the taste of another man’s bread, and how hard is the way up and down another man’s stairs.
Dante Alighieri
My Ready-Mades have nothing to do with the ‘objet trouve’ because the so-called ‘found object’ is completely directed by personal taste. Personal taste decides that this is a beautiful object and is unique.
Marcel Duchamp
I have the world’s worst taste in men, so now I simply have wonderful relationships of the friend kind, but trying to settle down with somebody? No, no, no, no, no, no, no. I’m beyond that.
Harvey Fierstein
A private railroad car is not an acquired taste. One takes to it immediately.
Eleanor Robson Belmont
We have learned the lines of good taste through history and our sense of guilt, be it post-colonial or post-Holocaust.
Patrick Chappatte
What does the truth matter? Haven’t we mothers all given our sons a taste for lies, lies which from the cradle upwards lull them, reassure them, send them to sleep: lies as soft and warm as a breast!
Georges Bernanos
It’s true that obscenity is a matter of taste and in the eye of the beholder.
Christopher Hitchens
Many people think it’s in bad taste to advertise for an insane asylum… but come on down. We’re going crazy.
Colin Mochrie
I think the basic thing that home cooks can learn how to do is just season properly… If the home cook realized how little salt they use compared to what’s needed, it would make their food taste better.
David Chang
I pledge allegiance to the living, and I will defend art from history. I will rescue art from the future, from its attrition into taste, and from the speculative notion that it will become more valuable with time.
Rene Ricard
I came to all the realizations about sustainability and biodiversity because I fell in love with the way food tastes. That was it. And because I was looking for that taste I feel at the doorsteps of the organic, local, sustainable farmers, dairy people and fisherman.
Alice Waters
In terms of having a business, I wanted to let it go beyond what my personal taste is. Basically, I’m in a kilt and a white shirt every day. So, you know, I don’t have a lot of scope, and I’m really picky about what I wear.
Marc Jacobs
It is nice to know that even David Beckham doesn’t have good taste in everything.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Without sulfites, wine may smell and taste funky or re-ferment in the bottle. Many distributors and shop owners are consequently reluctant to stock wines made without sulfites.
Roger Morris
It is not actual suffering but the taste of better things which excites people to revolt.
Eric Hoffer
That’s why editors and publishers will never be obsolete: a reader wants someone with taste and authority to point them in the direction of the good stuff, and to keep the awful stuff away from their door.
Walter Jon Williams
I know I’m an acquired taste – I’m anchovies. And not everybody wants those hairy little things.
Tori Amos
It is not difficult now to make good food because we have sophisticated equipment and refined ingredients. Being innovative also helps you. It sets you apart from other chefs. But taste is king.
Alvin Leung
Every man should follow the bent of his nature in art and letters, always provided that he does not offend against the rules of morality and good taste.
Thomas Edward Brown
A difference of taste in jokes is a great strain on the affections.
George Eliot
I grew up in the same place as my mother, seeing the sa

I grew up in the same place as my mother, seeing the same trees my mother saw when she was at work; the flowers I picked were the flowers that my grandma planted. We have different styles; I wouldn’t make the same clothes that my mum made, or my grandma, but we have the same taste.
Margherita Missoni
The thing about all my food is that everything is a remembered flavor. Maybe it’s something I had as a child or maybe it’s something I had in Milan, but I want it to taste better than you ever thought.
Ina Garten
Traditionally, Seattle has been a great sports town and great football town. What the Huskies have achieved over the years has been pretty amazing. That’s how I got my first taste of football – when I went with my father to Husky Stadium.
Paul Allen
Running a start-up is like eating glass. You just start to like the taste of your own blood.
Sean Parker
If you’re older you want to tell stories about the pool of human life and living and to communicate, not only to your age group but to do an age group that can begin to understand, that has enough experience of life far beyond the taste of life.
Nick Nolte
Spanglish is a creative way also of saying, ‘I am an American, and I have my own style, my own taste, my own tongue.’
Ilan Stavans
I like army boots, I like peasant skirts – sometimes together! So I do know that I have odd taste.
Mayim Bialik
A poem generated by its own laws may be unrealized and bad in terms of so-called objective principles of taste, judgement, deduction.
A. R. Ammons
I like to take it back, cause I’m an old soul. Growing up, my brothers, I’d grow up hearing what they were playing, and that’s how my taste has evolved.
C. J. McCollum
By the time I was a teenager, my desire to be daring and taste everything got me in trouble. Too often, I was in the company of kids my parents would call ‘wild.’
Marlee Matlin
I want people to know their palate is a snowflake. We all like different things. Why should we all have the same taste in wines?
Gary Vaynerchuk
I went on to Cincinnati. I had got a taste of the big cities and them bright lights. I stayed there until I was about 18 or 19 and then I went on to Detroit.
John Lee Hooker
I’ve always felt that poetry was particularly erotic, more than prose was… I say that you read poems not with your eyes and not with your ears, but with your mouth. You taste it.
Donald Hall
Fastidious taste makes enjoyment a struggle.
Mason Cooley
I’ve never dieted in my life; I like food too much. I’m just thoughtful about what I eat, and I’m lucky that I love the taste of vegetables. I’m certainly not ‘actress skinny,’ and I never will be. I’m strong, and my body works great for me.
Sarah McLachlan
I have quite catholic taste in music.
Martin Freeman
I grew up in South Africa without a television; there was no television, and the year after I left, television arrived in South Africa, so I have never really acquired a taste for watching television.
Alice Krige
To be a member of the Communist Party is to have a taste of the police state. It is a diluted taste but is bitter and unforgettable.
Elia Kazan
We’re not big on taste. And actually, if you don’t pander to undue sensitivities, then it ends up usually not being much of a problem.
Ethan Coen
I’m not exactly in a position where I get to be super-picky about the roles I get. But I would also never want to be a part of something that I think is poor in taste or doesn’t align with what I believe in.
Tavi Gevinson
I’m not too fond of really cool design. I’ve got quite kitsch taste really, in things like tableware. I’m quite a sucker for 1930s pressed glass.
Kevin McCloud
It’s not that our family has no taste, it’s just that our family’s taste is inconsistent.
Dave Eggers
I’m wary about this thing about being in the generation of social networking where people are like, ‘I am my musical taste.’ I am not just a collection of music. Or a collection of movies. I think that’s a thing that people romanticize: ‘Oh my God, she likes this band so she is a dream.’
Zooey Deschanel
It’s rubbish to say that just because it’s organic, it’s better. There’s good organic, and there’s bad organic. We should all be thinking about taste, not some stamp on the package.
Tom Parker Bowles
Produce what you consume; draw from the native element the necessaries of life. Permit no vitiated taste to lead you into the indulgence of expensive luxuries, which can only be obtained by involving yourselves in debt.
Brigham Young
Nothing is more fearful than imagination without taste.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I make a fair amount of my food choices for environmental-type reasons than nutrition or taste. I’m trying to minimize impact, which is something most people don’t necessarily think about when they’re shopping.
Alex Honnold
If people want to invade your privacy, they want to invade your privacy. I find it chilling, and I find it awful, and it makes me really nervous. It hasn’t happened to me much, but when you have a taste of it, it’s bitter.
Ruth Negga
I do like beer, but lately I’ve started drinking non-alcoholic beer and I like the taste of it and I don’t get the alcohol, so that’s a good alternative also.
Mike Ditka
If the sensitive washout has no taste for extreme gestures, total self-destruction, then his hope for singularity rests in his voice. Tone is everything.
Darryl Pinckney
There’s a science to ordering potatoes. Are they skinny shoestring or big, fat steak fries? You just have to let your taste buds guide you when deciding what to eat.
Gayle King
My father is a visual artist, so I was influenced by hi

My father is a visual artist, so I was influenced by him, and my mother is an English teacher who forced me to read a lot of books and poetry and get involved in theatre. I developed a varied taste for different arts.
Taika Waititi
Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won’t taste good.
Joe Paterno
I was brought up on a farm in Southwest France, eating farm-fresh produce three times a day. It was paradise on Earth, and it shaped my eating habits and my sense of taste.
Alain Ducasse
I didn’t want to become a chocolatier among others, buying ready-to-use couverture. I wanted to take the same approach I follow in my cuisine: putting the product first, revealing the authentic taste of the products.
Alain Ducasse
I have a brother younger than me. My mother was a librarian, so from her, I got the taste to read.
Shimon Peres
Money? I lost all taste for it.
Taylor Caldwell
Good taste is the worst vice ever invented.
Edith Sitwell
My big thing is to make sure the lipsticks taste good when you kiss. And, well, so far they taste pretty darn good.
Patrick Dempsey
Well my taste wasn’t very good when I first started out. But later, when I began to appreciate the art of acting, I would say the actress I most admire is Vanessa Redgrave.
Ellen Burstyn
I have lots of passions – gardens, art, music and reading. I have eclectic taste and read a huge variety of books.
Zoe Wanamaker
To tell the truth I cannot call my childhood bad. In your childhood you can’t compare things: one eats carrots, one eats candy, both taste good. As a child you cannot tell the difference.
Roman Abramovich
I remember my first taste of American big movies was ‘Ghost Rider.’ I’m in two little scenes. But for those two little scenes they had 400 extras, upside-down stunt cars, and a fire brigade.
Rebel Wilson
My stylist has really great taste – Petra Flannery has really great taste. I mean, I am opinionated, and as time goes on, as I’ve gotten to see more dresses or more clothes, it’s easier to say, ‘I like that’ or ‘I don’t like that,’ but it’s nothing I would ever, you know, design.
Emma Stone
Color is a matter of taste and of sensitivity.
Edouard Manet
Live daringly, boldly, fearlessly. Taste the relish to be found in competition – in having put forth the best within you.
Henry J. Kaiser
It is good taste, and good taste alone, that possesses the power to sterilize and is always the first handicap to any creative functioning.
Salvador Dali
Hollywood, young or otherwise, is a very trend-driven town, and that can get a little out of hand at times. I just try to stay true to my own personal taste – incorporating my personality while not taking myself too seriously.
Skylar Astin
I can still memory – taste the fresh buttermilk pancakes and hot buttermilk biscuits – both made with lard! – that were cooked on the top, or in the oven, of that ancient iron stove.
Vernon L. Smith
I’m quite interested in doing a film about fashion. As someone with no fashion taste whatsoever, I think it would be good for me.
Abi Morgan
Taste is developed by the diversity of the products one can sample. I think our children today may be missing an education about food. We must teach them to know their cuisine and to know the equilibrium of nourishment. That is very important for health.
Joel Robuchon
Any dispute in matters of taste usually results in a standoff.
Joseph Brodsky
I’m a great believer in the idea of not choosing based on our taste.
Sheena Iyengar
I have a soft spot for art that, in terms of subject matter and material, is in bad taste.
Jerry Saltz
A city is a state – of mind, of taste, of opportunity. A city is a marketplace – where ideas are traded, opinions clash and eternal conflict may produce eternal truths.
Herb Caen
I did a bunch of blue-collar jobs, because I knew I’d wind up with a white-collar job at some point, and I wanted to, I don’t know, I just wanted to taste life. I dug graves for a while, I worked as a stock boy in a big department store, I worked in a bank.
Graydon Carter
I don’t know how to do the other, so I won’t even consider television until the audience’s taste changes.
Mary Tyler Moore
I just feel like they’re a network I have a good vibe with, and I’m very grateful. My first job with a network was ‘General Hospital,’ and that was ABC. I feel like I have so much history with them, that they treat their shows well, and they have good, discerning taste.
Jaime Ray Newman
When birds burp, it must taste like bugs.
Bill Watterson
I have an acquired taste for language, yet it is seldom an actual focus of mine.
Saul Williams
I am trying to work out what my taste is, comedy-wise. I look up to stand up comedians who appear to be telling the truth, but I don’t mind if they are lying.
Jessie Cave
I really prefer light-eyed models, They photograph more easily. Of course, I come from a light-eyed background, so maybe that influenced my taste.
Eileen Ford
Let's just say I have expensive taste.

Let’s just say I have expensive taste.
Nikki Sixx
It’s too bad about ‘Dark of the Sun.’ It was really about Tshombe. When I read the script, I thought it was going to be a political movie, and I thought we might even have a hassle. But the director simplified it to brutality and bad taste.
Jim Brown
I developed my taste for coffee at five, staying with my grandmother in Connecticut.
Dana Goodyear
My idea for the Jamison Project was rather like a pickup company. The idea was to give the dancers a taste of the menu. Today, dancers need to try as many companies as possible without having a drop-dead loyalty to me or anyone else. They like to have the leeway to go their own way.
Judith Jamison
As a chef, if I can taste something, I can basically figure out what’s in it.
Kelis
I don’t mind where I work, it’s really nice to be able to travel around and taste the flavours of different countries.
Toni Collette
Since I’ve been pregnant, I’ve lost my taste for fast food. I used to be the biggest McDonald’s junkie and now I don’t like it anymore. I used to be the biggest fast-food connoisseur, and now I’ve really lost my taste for it.
Holly Madison
Love making jewelry? Awesome! Find blogs that inspire you, follow people on social media who have great taste, start an Etsy store, and borrow a friend’s DSLR to take some beautiful photos of your craft. All of this costs $0.
Alexis Ohanian
If I read the small print, and I see that what I love to taste has pantonaponamene or fake smeinlioaimine, then I have to hide in my room when I eat it. I’m still gonna eat it, it’s just gonna be ‘Don’t come in here!’
Bill Cosby
I trust my taste. I trust it completely and I always have done, and I’ve always thought it isn’t that different from everybody else’s.
Brian Eno
I don’t like the idea that in music, clothes, taste or anything, we are limited to a certain style, because we need to maintain an identity, maybe between some subculture group. Hopefully, all those walls break down, and music is just music.
Sam Hunt
I pay attention to everything now – the taste of bread, the taste of water.
Grizz Chapman
Mother’s taste was eclectic and ranged from the ancient world to the contemporary from Europe to the U.S.
David Rockefeller
When you get close to the raw materials and taste them at the moment they let go of the soil, you learn to respect them.
Rene Redzepi
I have truly eclectic taste in music, and I seem to cycle through phases in terms of to what’s inspiring me. I’ll go from Beethoven to Sigur Ros; world music, Brit-pop, classic rock, blues/jazz, even the odd bit of heavy metal.
Rachel Miner
Political theatre presents an entirely different set of problems. Sermonising has to be avoided at all cost. Objectivity is essential. The characters must be allowed to breathe their own air. The author cannot confine and constrict them to satisfy his own taste or disposition or prejudice.
Harold Pinter
No man can taste the fruits of autumn while he is delighting his scent with the flowers of spring.
Samuel Johnson
I think the water dictates how food will taste in a country. In England the apples taste unlike apples grown in any other place. England is an island, there’s a lot of salt in the air and in the water. I think that has something to do with it.
Gael Garcia Bernal
My hands look terrible but I can do anything I want to do, so, you know, I just think I’m playing all around with more good taste and not dashing up and down the piano.
Marian McPartland
Any sauce whatsoever should be smooth, light (without being liquid), glossy to the eye, and decided in taste. When these conditions are fulfilled, it is always easy to digest, even for tired stomachs.
Auguste Escoffier
Advertising should always be in good taste without a question.
Jerry Della Femina
I tell everybody the same thing: You have to make every dish so when you taste it, you should remember it when you go home.
Wolfgang Puck
What is required as we travel towards full unemployment is not new legislation but a gradual change of mental attitude, a shift in values. As our taste for idling grows, we will refuse to work for old-fashioned bosses who demand a five-day, 40-hour, nine-to-five type week, or worse.
Tom Hodgkinson
When you have had a taste of excellence, you cannot go back to mediocrity.
Maximillian Degenerez
I love John Waters. There’s stuff in it that’s beyond the boundaries of my taste, but his movies have always been like that.
Tracey Ullman
Although a skillful flatterer is a most delightful companion if you have him all to yourself, his taste becomes very doubtful when he takes to complimenting other people.
Charles Dickens
I think I have a more wider scope for music, I have more taste for music.
Dennis Brown
I am only interested in bad taste if I can enjoy a gruesome tango or watch a movie that makes me cry.
Manuel Puig
I have little taste for fashionable dissipations, cards, and dancing; the theatre and tea parties are my aversion, and I look with little envy on those who find their enjoyment in such transitory delights, if delights they may be called.
Dorothea Dix
I admire my fellow judge Paul Hollywood enormously, though we often argue. He believes presentation and uniformity are paramount; I’m more interested in taste. I don’t mind if one bun is smaller than the others, or if there’s a little pastry cracking, though I don’t want a soggy bottom.
Mary Berry
Adding salt to desserts helps to balance and pronounce flavors. Almost all of my desserts have salt in them. They don’t taste salty per se, but if I gave you two of the same item – one with salt and one without – side by side, you would realize something was missing.
Johnny Iuzzini
Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, w

Well, Art is Art, isn’t it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.
Groucho Marx
But Bill Clinton had the good taste to lie about his sexual peccadillos. He had the honor and the decency to want to cover it up.
Lynn Samuels
If the work is poor, the public taste will soon do it justice. And the author, reaping neither glory nor fortune, will learn by hard experience how to correct his mistakes.
Jacques-Louis David
There is something majestic in the bad taste of Italy.
E. M. Forster

TV is tricky. You can do some stuff and people will tune out and never tune back in. It’s sort of like putting a bad taste in somebody’s mouth. Some people may not ever tune in again. And then there’s some people that will tune in just to tune in and see what’s gon’ happen.

A sense of electrical current was part of my own experience of being manic.
