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!

Oliver Goldsmith


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


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

Charles M. Schulz


One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


I'm trying to write books that taste like ice cream but have the nutrition of vegetables.

Dan Brown


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


If Marilyn is in love with my husband it proves she has good taste, for I am in love with him too.

Simone Signoret


Men whose sense of taste is destroyed by sickness, sometimes think honey sour. A diseased eye does not see many things which do exist, and notes many things which do not exist. The same thing frequently takes place with regard to the force of words, when the critic is inferior to the writer.

Saint Basil


Being happy is a matter of personal taste.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin


There is a fine line between censorship and good taste and moral responsibility.

Steven Spielberg


In 1974/75, I spent a sabbatical year with Professor Vince Jaccarino and Dr. Alan King at the University of California in Santa Barbara to get a taste of nuclear magnetic resonance. We solved a specific problem on the bicritical point of MnF2, their home-base material. We traded experience, NMR, and critical phenomena.

Heinrich Rohrer


Taste — quotes and aphorisms

Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.

William Shakespeare


My style is very inspired by both my parents, so we all have the same taste.

Zoe Kravitz


It seems odd to think of tasting without any perceptive experience, but you are doing it right now. Humans have taste receptor cells in the gut, the voice box, the upper esophagus. But only the tongue's receptors report to the brain.

Mary Roach


Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


A taste for simplicity cannot endure for long.

Eugene Delacroix


Sometimes we should express our gratitude for the small and simple things like the scent of the rain, the taste of your favorite food, or the sound of a loved one's voice.

Joseph B. Wirthlin


Beauty is the sole ambition, the exclusive goal of Taste.

Charles Baudelaire


No man can taste the fruits of autumn while he is delighting his scent with the flowers of spring.

Samuel Johnson
