Taste Quotes

Happiness is a wine of the rarest vintage, and seems insipid to a vulgar taste.

Logan P. Smith

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

It had the taste of an apple peeled with a steel knife.

Aldous Huxley

There are no standards of taste in wine, cigars, poetry, prose, etc. Each man's own taste is the standard, and a majority vote cannot decide for him or in any slightest degree affect the supremacy of his own standard

Mark Twain

This wine is too good for toast-drinking, my dear. You do not want to mix emotions up with a wine like that. You lose the taste

Ernest Hemingway

God knows what you have unleashed on the unsuspecting South. It will be wine, women, and song all the way with Ringo when he gets the taste for it.

Norm

Some must be great. Great offices will have Great talents. And God gives to every man The virtue, temper, understanding, taste, That lifts him into life, and lets him fall Just in the niche he was ordain'd to fill.

William Cowper

The preservationist is not an elitist who wants to exclude others, notwithstanding popular opinion to the contrary; he is a moralist who wants to convert them. He is concerned about what other people do in the parks not because he is unaware of the diversity of taste in the society, but because he views certain kinds of activity as calculated to undermine the attitudes he believes the park can, and should, encourage.

Joseph Sax

Taste is the intermediate faculty which connects the active with the passive powers of our nature, the intellect with the senses; and its appointed function is to elevate the images of the latter, while it realizes the ideas of the former.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

All luxury corrupts either the morals or the taste.

Joseph Joubert

Every moment there is a possibility to be total. Whatsoever you are doing, be absorbed in it so utterly that the mind thinks nothing, is just there, is just a presence. And more and more totality will be coming. And the taste of totality will make you more and more capable of being total. And try to see when you are not total. Those are the moments which have to be dropped slowly, slowly. When you are not total, whenever you are in the head--thinking, brooding, calculating, cunning, clever--you are not total. Slowly, slowly slip out of those moments. It is just an old habit. Habits die hard. But they die certainly--if one persists, they die.

Osho

What will not luxury taste? Earth, sea, and air, Are daily ransack'd for the bill of fare. Blood stuffed in skins is British Christians' food, And France robs marshes of the croaking brood.

John Gay

Fish, to taste right, must swim three times - in water, in butter, and in wine

Polish Proverb

English usage is sometimes more than mere taste, judgment and education -- sometimes it's sheer luck, like getting across the street.

E. B. White

To achieve harmony in bad taste is the height of elegance.

Jean Genet

Now, Halford, I bid you adieu for the present. This is the first instalment of my debt. If the coin suits you, tell me so, and I'll send you the rest of my leisure: if you would rather remain my creditor than stuff your purse with such ungainly heavy pieces tell me still, and I'll pardon your bad taste, and willingly keep the treasure to myself.

Anne Bront

Still don't know what I was waiting for And my time was running wild. A million dead-end streets and Every time I thought I'd got it made It seemed the taste was not so sweet. So I turned myself to face me But I've never caught a glimpse Of how the others must see the faker I'm much too fast to take that test.

David Robert Jones

No one can ever heap enough insults upon me to suit my taste. I think we all really thrive on hostility, because it's the most intense kind of massage the ego can undergo. Other people's indifference is the only horror.

Paul Bowles

A taste for irony has kept more hearts from breaking than a sense of humor for it takes irony to appreciate the joke which is on oneself.

Jessamyn West

A little learning is a dangerous thing; Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring: There shallow Draughts intoxicate the Brain, And drinking largely sobers us again

Alexander Pope

Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.

Charlie Brown

Where there is no religion, hypocrisy becomes good taste
