I love sea salt spray but I hate being salty from the ocean, so I’ll always shower after surfing, shampoo and condition my hair and then put in the salt spray. It’s sort of a reverse cycle, but I just can’t do the natural sea salt – it just feels too crunchy to go out with.
Laura Enever
Jesus himself, as the gospel story goes on to its dramatic conclusion, lives out the same message of the Sermon on the Mount: he is the light of the world, he is the salt of the earth, he loves his enemies and gives his life for them, he is lifted up on a hill so that the world can see.

I think early on it’s important to put that at the back of your mind and make your own choices.

But any actor worth his salt makes something their own.

George Ohsawa
I’ve been more conscious of my salt intake, sugar intake, making sure I’m not eating as many processed foods.
I have this theory about words. There’s a thousand ways to say “Pass the salt”. It could mean, you know, “Can I have some salt?” or it could mean, “I love you.”. It could mean, “I’m very annoyed with you”. Really, the list could go on and on. Words are little bombs, and they have a lot of energy inside them.

I think cooking is really key because it’s the only way you’re going to take back control of your diet from the corporations who want to cook for us. The fact is, so far, corporations don’t cook that well. They tend to use too much salt, fat, and sugar – much more than you would ever use at home.
Michael Pollan
No man worth his salt, no man of spirit and spine, no man for whom I could have any respect, could rejoice in the identification of Tallulah’s husband. It’s tough enough to be bogged down in a legend. It would be even tougher to marry one.

Every great loss demands that we choose life again. We need to grieve in order to do this. The pain we have not grieved over will always stand between us and life.

‘Salt’ is like this snapshot in midair, an action shot. It’s about my relationship with the church, the classical and choral music that I dealt with in school, and my new introduction to jazz. It’s very hard for me to listen to from beginning to end, because I hear how lost I was.
Lizz Wright
Take a cup of coffee, keep adding sugar until you reach the point that you like it the most, and then when you add more sugar, you actually like it less.

Gillian Jacobs
Salt is a preservative. It really holds flavor. For example, if you chop up some fresh herbs, or even just garlic, the salt will extract the moisture and preserve the flavor.

Mickey Spillane
It’s tough. We don’t have a character-driven show so I think the fans get really frustrated because they don’t get to see any consistency in terms of what’s happening romantically. We kind of just have to take it with a grain of salt. It shows up where it shows up.
Eva LaRue

Kurt Vonnegut

Dylan Thomas

I collect old Coon Chicken Inn memorabilia. I collect black memorabilia, like old minstrel posters. It was a real place. There was one in Seattle, one in Portland, and one in Salt Lake City. They started in 1925, and then they went out of business around 1958.
Terry Zwigoff
When a person that one loves is in the world and alive and well, and pleased to be in the world, then to miss them is only a new flavor, a salt sharpness in experience. It is when the beloved is unhappy or maimed or troubled that one misses with pain.

I didn’t go into politics to tell people how much salt to put on their chips.

Country to me is living life at its simplest: Learning to appreciate a sliced vine-ripe tomato with a dash of salt, served between two slices of good bread and eaten over the kitchen sink.

Eva Zeisel
Sometimes she goes out to work as a practical nurse, and comes home and sits by the kitchen table soaking her feet in a pan of hot water and Epsom salts.

William Maxwell
I believe that sugar is just as important for our body as salt is, and other natural foods.
Adnan Sami
You should always take what I say about religion with a grain of salt, because the 7 deadly sins are more like my seven daily activities. I try to check them all off at least once a day. All of them except gluttony; my trainer keeps that under control.
Milo Yiannopoulos
You have to take all the ups and downs that come your way like a pinch of salt. Just leave everything behind. Forgive and forget.
Amruta Khanvilkar
The pamphlets going back to London telling of the violent derring-dos of the Bahamian pirates were the ones that brought infamy to the names of Charles Vane and Blackbeard. How much of that is really documented history? It carries a flavor with it, but take all this with a pinch of salt.
Ray Stevenson
Can policy be both wise and aggressively partisan? Ask any Republican worth his salt and the answer will be an unequivocal yes. Ask a Democrat of the respectable Beltway variety and he will twist himself into a pretzel denying it.

And a mother without children is not a mother at all, and if I am not a mother, than I am nothing. Nothing. I am like sugar dissolved in a glass of water. Or, I am like salt, which disappears when you cook with it. I am salt. Without my children, I cease to exist.

And the lives ye led were mine.
Rudyard Kipling
I pride myself in figuring out how to elevate a dish with a little preserved lemon or, then, a sprinkle of Maldon salt.
Meghan Markle
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.

Anything salty and crunch is a world of perfection to me. Put chips in front of me, and I will eat to the bottom of the bag. Because I have the tendency to do this, I found these amazing Eden Brown Rice Chips. They’re the perfect amount of salt and crunch, and there’s nothing in them.
Tamara Taylor

Henry James
Salt. Wound. Together at last.
Maureen Johnson
Like skateboarders, writers live by rejection; like writers, any skater worth his salt must have the single-minded tenacity of a wiener dog.
Bret Anthony Johnston
The night of Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao. I woke up that morning with a very, very bad case of laryngitis and couldn’t speak at all. I had no voice. And I was able, just by having chicken soup and barley and salt water, to have just enough for that one fight.
Michael Buffer
Kids. You gotta love them. I adore children. A little salt, a squeeze of lemon–perfect.
Jim Butcher
People marry with a deep longing that their partner will tend to their wounds, not throw salt in them. Honor your partner’s vulnerability.
Harriet Lerner
Potatoes are obviously a good source of potassium. Carbs, you’re burning off energy there. And salt, obviously. It’s not the breakfast or type of meal of champions, but there are quirky things for everybody.
Jason Hammel
But in answer to your question about the conspiracy angle, I think that any historian worth his salt, and this is where I fault Stephen Ambrose and a lot of these guys who attack me – not all of life is a result of conspiracy by any means! Accident occurs alongside conspiracy.
Oliver Stone
I crave cantaloupe like a crazy person. But I put salt all over it, so I don’t know if it’s that healthy.
Jessica Simpson
The salt blowing off the sea makes the air feel textured and heavy.
Lauren Oliver
I don’t know when pepper mills in a restaurant got to be right behind frankincense and myrrh in prominence. It used to be in a little jar that sat next to the salt on the table and everyone passed it around, sneezed, and it was no big deal.
Erma Bombeck
Avoid buying frozen dinners and processed foods, as they are often overloaded with salt.
Mehmet Oz
The nuclear capability of Israel has resulted from this conspiracy, which provided for the highjacking of 200 tons of ore in 1968. The rumor was widespread in the knowledgeable circles of Salt Lake City that the Mormon Church had arranged to assist Israel in bringing off Armageddon.
Mae Brussell
Just like a mountain goat climbing very steep and dangerous land to lick salt from the rocks, man also should take high risks to get what he wants!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
By nature, a storyteller is a plagiarist. Everything one comes across – each incident, book, novel, life episode, story, person, news clip – is a coffee bean that will be crushed, ground up, mixed with a touch of cardamom, sometimes a tiny pinch of salt, boiled thrice with sugar, and served as a piping-hot tale.
Rabih Alameddine
It was necessary to organize my career to remain at the top level until Salt Lake City.
Hermann Maier
A slab of bread “buttered” with lard and, if you were lucky, seasoned with salt and pepper, was a luxury.
Jimmy Hoffa
I’d like to do an action film like Angelina Jolie’s ‘Salt.’
Katrina Kaif
I think over-seasoning it is something I tend to do. If it’s a good steak, salt, pepper, and butter are the three key ingredients. But just try not to overcook it, and you’ll be happy.
Ree Drummond
You can seek clarity, you can seek warmth, you can try to make something for lasting. You can pack something in salt so that it’s well made and you can hope that it outlasts time. But, ultimately that’s not up to you.
Edward Hirsch
Before I go to meet my Maker, I want to use the salt left in my shaker. I want to find out if it’s true The Blue Danube is really blue, Before I kiss the world goodbye.
Howard Dietz
At the end of the day, you can’t compete with Mother Nature. If you’ve got a great tomato, just a pinch of sea salt is all you need.
Zac Posen
I really, really wanted to be an Olympian. My parents knew about this dream of mine, and they suggested I try my hand at bobsled. They’d seen it on TV at the Salt Lake City Games in 2002 and thought it would be a good sport for me.
Elana Meyers
At my age days dissolve like salt in water; the day’s gone and I don’t even know what I’ve done with the hours.
Isabel Allende
Today is made of yesterday, each time I steal
toward rites I do not know, waiting for the lost
ingredient, as if salt or money or even lust
would keep us calm and prove us whole at last.
Anne Sexton
Capping our SALT deduction was a deliberate attempt to punish states that value quality public services.
Tom Malinowski
The chief object of every golf architect or greenkeeper worth his salt is to imitate the beauties of nature so closely as to make his work indistinguishable from nature itself.
Alister MacKenzie
But these few are the salt of the earth; without them, human life would become a stagnant pool. Not only is it they who introduce good things which did not before exist, it is they who keep the life in those which already existed.
John Stuart Mill
I believe our differences are the little pinches of salt that can make the marriage seem more flavorful.
James E. Faust
Science is history arranged according to the superstition and taste of the moment. The vocabulary of scholars has no wit, no salt. These heavy tomes have no soul, they are filled with distress.
Blaise Cendrars
What I know about Mike Tyson, I see in the boxing ring. As far as all of the gossip stuff that I hear about him, I know first hand to take that with a grain of salt.
Gerald McRaney
My lad chewed and swallowed a dictionary. We gave him Epsom salts – but we can’t get a word out of him.
Les Dawson
Volume can vary a ton when you’re cooking, depending on how you measure. Do you carefully spoon the flour into a measuring cup, or do you scoop with the cup? Are you using chunky Morton kosher salt, or finer Diamond Crystal? There can be a 40 percent difference in volume depending on the brand.
Chris Morocco
Didn’t have Nintendo, we just poured salt on snails.
Al Yankovic
I bought a Stella McCartney jacket in Salt Lake City. It’s nice. It looks like a pea coat. I love Stella’s stuff, so wherever I go in the world, I will always go in and buy her stuff.
Chrissie Hynde
Of all smells, bread; of all tastes, salt.
George Herbert
Vegetarians are doomed in the Chilean street-food scene, though if they are willing to ingest small quantities of lard, they can enjoy the ever-popular squash, salt and lard biscuits known as sopaipillas.
Jonathan Franklin
Trade liberty for safety or money and you’ll end up with neither. Liberty, like a grain of salt, easily dissolves. The power of questioning – not simply believing – has no friends. Yet liberty depends on it.
Thomas Jefferson
People will want to say this or that about you, but take it with a pinch of salt.
Daniel Sturridge
The history of the Americas is one of constant warfare over salt.
Mark Kurlansky
Lotta people don’t know where Utah is but it in Salt Lake.
Karl Malone
When Alexander of Macedon was 33, he cried salt tears because there were no more worlds to conquer. [Eric] Bristow is only 27.
Sid Waddell
A Child will make two Dishes at an Entertainment for Friends; and when the Family dines alone, the fore or hind Quarter will makea reasonable Dish; and seasoned with a little Pepper or Salt, will be very good Boiled on the fourth Day, especially in Winter.
Jonathan Swift
To be a political poet means simply to be a poet, and any poet worth their salt will be a political animal in their own peculiar way – they have no choice: politics is one of the many fragments we thread into the tapestry of the poem.
Andre Naffis-Sahely
Someone knocks at the door of an apartment to borrow salt or sugar, people run into each other in the elevator, and in this way become inscribed in the spectator’s memory.
Krzysztof Kieslowski
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 mother persuaded me not to pluck my eyebrows when I was a teenager – right now I’m so grateful I never did! She also taught me to pour 2 kg. of salt in my bath whenever I feel swollen and tired – and to end it with a cold shower. It does wonders.
Margherita Missoni
Chlorine is a deadly poison gas employed on European battlefields in World War I. Sodium is a corrosive metal which burns upon contact with water. Together they make a placid and unpoisonous material, table salt. Why each of these substances has the properties it does is a subject called chemistry.
Carl Sagan
My mentality has always been focused around the mindset that you have to earn everything. So even if you get told that you’re going to play, I take that with a pinch of salt and respect all the comments, but for me, I have to earn my place.
Millie Bright
We got together in a few days a company of the toughest old salts imaginable–not pretty to look at, but fellows, by their faces, of the most indomitable spirit.
Robert Louis Stevenson
My dad was a big fan of comedy. He wanted to be a stand-up. He loved Lenny [Bruce]. He also loved Lord Buckley and jazz and stuff. He was a hipster. My parents were kind of beatnik-y, you know, for Salt Lake City. But my humor, I think, came from wanting to disarm people before they hit me.
Judd Apatow
You as a salt-being, made of salt, go to fathom the depth of the ocean, and in the process you yourself dissolve. A great maharishi once said that true meditation is like this.
Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche
Any writer worth his salt writes to please himself.
Harper Lee
I’ve got a couple of grays in my beard and maybe a little salt and pepper in my hair. If I let my hair down and go through it, you’d see a good bit of grays. Maybe from the stress of the road and the crazy business I’m in.
Roman Reigns
Pot Noodles are my true love because I don’t have to cook them. I have a ritual: take one pot noodle, add a teaspoon of chilli flakes and half of salt, plus all the seasoning it comes with.
Nadiya Hussain
Discretion is the salt, and fancy the sugar of life; the one preserves, the other sweetens it.
Christian Nestell Bovee
Our values are not luxuries, but necessities. They are not the salt in our bread, but the bread itself.
Jimmy Carter
Salt’s relationship to flavor is multidimensional: It has its own particular taste, and it both balances and enhances the flavor of other ingredients.
Samin Nosrat
She makes use of the soft of the bread for a napkin. She falls asleep at times with shoes on, on unmade beds. When a little money comes in, June buys delicacies, strawberries in the winter, caviar and bath salts.
Anais Nin
Salt, gathered from the tears of a thousand angels, restraining the essence of Sammael, the Hellhound. The Seed of Destruction. This I can promise, Sammael, for every one of you that falls, two shall arise.
Grigori Rasputin
It’s just as important – if not more important – to take the praise with a pinch of salt, just as you do the criticism.
I often see the materials of photography as being a type of terrain. Emulsions, liquid developers, silver salts, and fixers interact, and I construct a landscape that I need to first explore in my mind’s eye if I am to make it manifest as an artful image in silver.
Paul Caponigro
A home without a grandmother is like an egg without salt.
Florence King
The road to Manderley lay ahead. There was no moon. The sky above our heads was inky black. But the sky on the horizon was not dark at all. It was shot with crimson, like a splash of blood. And the ashes blew towards us with the salt wind from the sea.
Daphne du Maurier
From the standpoint of food production, storage, handling, and the Lord’s counsel, wheat should have high priority. Water, of course, is essential. Other basics could include honey or sugar, legumes, milk products or substitutes, and salt or its equivalent.
Ezra Taft Benson
Yesterday the flame of the Olympic torch was carried through our great state on its way to Salt Lake City.
Jane D. Hull
God has given the salt lick to the deer; and He has given to man, red-skin and white, the delicious spring at which to slake his thirst.
James F. Cooper
They always gives me bath salts,” complained Nobby. “And bath soap and bubble bath and herbal bath lumps and tons of bath stuff and I can’t think why, ‘cos it’s not as if I hardly ever has a bath. You’d think they’d take the hint, wouldn’t you?
Terry Pratchett
The Salt Lake fans are so passionate.
Gordon Hayward
I had drawn away into the salt,
myself, a shell
emptied of life.
Hilda Doolittle
Contradiction is the salt which keeps truth from corruption
John Lancaster Spalding
It’s salt. Why don’t you sprinkle some on me, honey? Aren’t I just good enough to eat?
Grant Morrison
I’m really old-fashioned. An Epsom salt bath, that’s genuinely better than any massage.
Emilia Clarke
It is terrible to die of thirst in the ocean. Do you have to salt your truth so heavily that it does not even-quench thirst any more?
Friedrich Nietzsche
The first thing you have to do is take everything with a grain of salt. You know, you’ve gotta just look at the goal, focus on what you gotta do and take one step at a time as a whole, as every performance being that’s it, that’s one objective, and let’s just move forward and work on that.
Stefano Langone
It is a true saying that a man must eat a peck of salt with his friend before he knows him.
Miguel de Cervantes
It (suicide) became a possibility like Maybe when I grow up, I will be dead. Life was a cake that looked good on the bakery shelf but turned to sawdust and salt when I ate it.
Maggie Stiefvater
I don’t think everyone should vote. If you have to be dragged into the polls, carried into the polls and smelling salts have to be used, you probably shouldn’t be voting. However, we shouldn’t be putting up barriers to voting that target certain groups.
Mo Rocca
In Mexico we have a trick – add a crystal of salt to the kettle and the tea tastes better, almost English. But after four pots, your kettle’s broken.
Gael Garcia Bernal
If men could get pregnant, abortion clinics would be like Starbucks – two on every block and four in every airport. And the morning-after pill would come in different flavors like sea salt and cool ranch.
Nasim Pedrad
Salt seasons, purifies, preserves. But somebody ought to remind us that salt also irritates. Real living Christianity rubs this world the wrong way.
Vance Havner
I am hopeful that there are three or four Harvey Milks. It would be nice to have one in California and one in New York and one in Texas and Oklahoma-it would be fantastic. Maybe even one in Salt Lake City. I would like that.
Dustin Lance Black
In reality, if there are 200 people commenting on something online, it’s less than a grain of salt in a huge beach of humanity – who cares?
Suki Waterhouse
London is my home. I miss my family so much; it’s hard being away. And I miss salt and vinegar crisps. And Marmite. And good fudge. Oh my God. Clotted cream fudge.
Felicity Jones
I eat three home-cooked meals a day, all prepared in advance. My ethos is to stay away from unsustainable low-calorie diets and aim for something balanced: loads of veg, protein and enjoy the carbs you love. Be realistic. I don’t count sugar or salt or grams of fat: it’s very restrictive and unenjoyable.
Joe Wicks
Solitude is the salt of personhood. It brings out the authentic flavor of every experience.
May Sarton
There are very few horror films that I think are worth their salt.
George A. Romero
There is one thing about Englishmen, they won’t fix anything till it’s just about totally ruined. You couldn’t get the English to fix anything at the start. No! They like to sit and watch it grow worse. Then, when it just looks like the whole thing has gone up Salt Creek, why, the English jump in and rescue it.
Will Rogers
Most people are robust. If a man puts his hand on a woman’s bottom, any woman worth her salt can deal with it. It is communication. Can’t we be friendly?
Jeremy Irons
I still feel Mormon. Those men in Salt Lake City can’t decide who’s Mormon and who isn’t.
Sonia Johnson
Modest egotism is the salt of conversation; you do not want too much of it, but if it is altogether omitted, everything tastes flat.
Henry Van Dyke
Salt Lake’s got a cool vibe.
Kim Shattuck
No American worth his salt should go looking around for a root. I advance this in all modesty, as a not unreasonable opinion.
Wyndham Lewis
One needs the invented, the spontaneous, the impromptu for ritual. Skepticism, that grain of salt, is inappropriate.
E. M. Broner
The laboratory evidence that carbohydrate-rich diets can cause the body to reain water and so raise blood pressure, just as salt consumption is supposed to do, dates back well over a century
Gary Taubes
On the night before a triathlon, I normally eat something simple like a pizza. You know where you stand with pizza. It’s not going to upset you or give you food poisoning, and it contains carbohydrates and a bit of salt, which is perfect before a triathlon.
Jonathan Brownlee
She tastes like nectar and salt. Nectar and salt and apples. Pollen and stars and hinges. She tastes like fairy tales. Swan maiden at midnight. Cream on the tip of a fox’s tongue. She tastes like hope.
Laini Taylor
Woman is the Sunday of man: not his repose only, but his joy; the salt of his life.
Jules Michelet
I don’t know why people would want to have lunch with writers. I’ve eaten with writers. We have appalling table manners, and rarely say anything other than ‘Pass the salt’ or ‘If you’re not going to eat that, can I have it?’
Neil Gaiman
I wouldn’t be worth my salt if I weren’t attracting some controversy and criticism. Everyone in the world who has done something in life has attracted criticism.
Margaret Thatcher
I really believe that a lawyer – no matter how good – if he or she is really worth their weight in salt, they will lose some cases because, after all, it is not really one of those secretive things that not everything is decided by who your lawyer is.
Floyd Abrams
I burst into tears and I cry and cry until it feels as though it is not salt and water being squeezed from my eyes, but blood.
Nick Hornby
It is easier to accept the message of the stars than the message of the salt desert. The stars speak of man’s insignificance in the long eternity of time; the desert speaks of his insignificance right now.
Edwin Way Teale
What I’ve learned is Twitter is only a bubble – take it with a pinch of salt.
Shirley Ballas
The foods that prolong life and increase purity, vigour, health, cheerfulness, and happiness are those that are delicious, soothing, substantial and agreeable… Foods that are bitter, sour, salt, over-hot, pungent, dry and burning produce unhappiness, repentance and disease.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The only reason anyone would sell salt more cheaply than usual would be because he was desperate for money. And anyone who took advantage of that situation would be showing a lack of respect for the sweat and struggle of the man who laboured to produce it.
Paulo Coelho
Wonder is the salt of the earth.
M. C. Escher
They’re the salt of the earth, those girls. They don’t sit each night and compare notes on groups, criticising lyrics, asking if it’s valid. They just play the record… yeah, and maybe they dance. I love them. I love them dearly
David Bowie
At sea a fellow comes out. Salt water is like wine, in that respect.
Herman Melville
Around 4000BC, the Mesolithic, hunter-gatherer way of life here gave way to a more settled, farming existence. Those Neolithic people built wooden trackways across the salt marshes and reed beds.
Alice Roberts
I think every actor worth his or her salt wants to do good, meaningful cinema.
Your playing is like salt water taffy. You see all the beautiful colors, red, yellow, blue, but they all taste the same.
Marcel Tabuteau
I lost 90 pounds and my blood pressure went down to a normal level and the salt in my urine disappeared. And that was when I had to make the transition from fat character actor to thin character actor.
Ron Perlman
I like simple food, seasoned with just salt, pepper, oil and vinegar. Complicated food and complicated lives are never good.
Sirio Maccioni
Blessed be they whose lives do not taste of evilbut if some god shakes your houseruin arrivesruin does not leaveit comes tolling over the generationsit comes rolling the black night salt up from the ocean floorand all your thrashed coasts groan
Anne Carson
The human diet, for millions of years, did not contain any added salt – only the sodium present in natural foods, adding up to only about 1000 mg sodium per day.
Joel Fuhrman
Most of my family is still active in the Mormon Church. They live in Utah and Provo and Orem and Salt Lake City.
Dustin Lance Black
Dark chocolate, and salt and vinegar chips are my weakness – but not together.
Gail Simmons
When I’m preparing for a swim, I imagine absolutely everything about it: the color of the water, how cold it is, the taste of salt in my mouth. I visualize each and every stroke.
Lewis Gordon
Salt and the center of the world have to be there, in that spot on the tablecloth.
Julio Cortazar
We have become so accustomed to hearing everyone claim that his product is the best in the world, or the cheapest, that we take all such statements with a grain of salt.
Robert Collier
Sure, you can mix the flour, baking soda, salt, shortening, and the whole nine yards, but why wouldn’t you just pull out a box of Bisquick?
Sandra Lee
“I smell fennel,” Launcelot said. “That reminds me, I should tell you I have discovered a specific for maims. You take salt, good-quality river mud, and bee urine, and slather it on the maim and hold it there for two days. Works like a charm. Gathering the bee urine is a bit of a bore.”
Donald Barthelme
When summer squash is freshly picked, all it needs is a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and maybe a hit of lemon juice.
Marcela Valladolid
A fly with a brain the size of a salt grain has the behavioral repertoire nearly as complex as a much larger animal such as a mouse. That’s a super-interesting problem from an engineering perspective.
Michael Dickinson
Being kissed by a man who didn’t wax his moustache was-like eating an egg without salt.
Rudyard Kipling
Well, you know, any defense force worth its salt has to be able to deal with uncertainty, has to be able to deal with events that we may not have planned for.
Leon Panetta
Any man worth his salt will stick up for what he believes right, but it takes a slightly better man to acknowledge instantly and without reservation that he is in error.
Andrew Jackson
I take New Years with a grain of salt and three aspirins.
Milton Berle
Take life with a pinch of salt
A shot of tequila and a wedge of lime
Do nothing at all
But take your time
John Walter Bratton
When I saw the 2010 Games and speed skating, I had a change of heart. I had always dreamed of being an Olympian, and something clicked inside of me. I knew I had to move to Salt Lake City and make this dream a reality.
Brittany Bowe
To disbelieve in marriage is easy: to love a married woman is easy; but to betray a comrade, to be disloyal to a host, to break the covenant of bread and salt, is impossible.
George Bernard Shaw
When you say you are a gamer and you are a celebrity or a former celebrity there’s a grain of salt that everybody takes that with.
Curt Schilling
A black person grows up in this country – and in many places – knowing that racism will be as familiar as salt to the tongue. Also, it can be as dangerous as too much salt. I think that you must struggle for betterment for yourself and for everyone.
Maya Angelou
Everyone has always underestimated a company headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah. The New York boys thought they could take me on, that nobody out here has any knowledge or wisdom.
Jon Huntsman, Sr.
I’m really Americanized. The only real Latina thing I do is cook rice and beans with chuletas and tostones. I do the healthier version of what my grandmother would have made: a lot less salt, a lot less fat, a lot more vegetables. Sometimes I serve it with brown rice, which is, like, sacrilegious.
Andrea Navedo
We grew up in the Rose Park section of Salt Lake City. It’s a good neighborhood but a tough one, on the poor side but proud. Sports are big. You learn to fight.
Tony Finau
For ridding oneself of faith is like boiling seawater to retrieve the salt–something is gained but something is lost.
Zadie Smith
People think because they sweat, their hair is dirty. False. It’s just salt and your natural oil.
Jonathan Van Ness
As we do not see squares in nature, I thought that it is man-made. But I have corrected myself. Because squares exist in salt crystals, our daily salt.
Josef Albers
We eat raw dough. We eat raw cookie. We eat massive buttercream in cakes that are still warm. We eat salt. We have to taste things that you will not put in your mouth. But you know what? That’s television. You have to do it.
Jacques Torres
If there are greater activities in Vesuvius or Pelee, then the southern coast of California and the areas between Salt Lake and the southern portions of Nevada, we may expect, within the three months following same, inundation by the earthquakes. But these are to be more in the Southern than the Northern Hemisphere.
Edgar Cayce
I reckon I tried everything on the old apple, but salt and pepper and chocolate sauce topping.
Gaylord Perry
I’ve never known a man worth his salt who, in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn’t appreciate the grind, the discipline
Vince Lombardi
A family is one of nature’s solubles; it dissolves in time like salt in rainwater.
Pat Conroy
Offensive linemen are like salt. Nobody ever remembers the brand they buy.
Blaine Nye
Cheese and salt meat, should be sparingly eat.
Benjamin Franklin
I’m not going to give up salt and sugar because I want to look like Adriana Lima. But I am going to work out to make myself feel good in my own body.
Zoey Deutch
They were strange books. They spoke about mercury, salt, dragons, and kings, and he didn’t understand any of it.
Paulo Coelho
As president, Nixon imposed wage and price controls, created the Environmental Protection Agency, initiated race-based hiring schemes, signed SALT I with the Soviets and instituted rapprochement with the Red Chinese. All of this resulted in liberals … despising him even more!
Ann Coulter
Of the smells, bread; of the tastes, salt.
George Herbert
In the sea of love, I melt like salt Faith, Doubt – they both dissolve. A star is opening in my heart . The worlds turn in it.
We can choose to be like the Mormon pioneers, who maintained a spirit of gratitude during their slow and painful trek toward the Great Salt Lake, even singing and dancing and glorying in the goodness of God.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Oh, God above, if heaven has a taste it must be an egg with butter and salt, and after the egg is there anything in the world lovelier than fresh warm bread and a mug of sweet golden tea?
Frank McCourt
None of Your Business.’ It’s the only Salt-N-Pepa song that I regret.
Cheryl James
The ingredients of a hamburger seldom vary. It’s a percentage of fat to lean meat, add salt and prepare and that’s it. It shouldn’t need a recipe.
Anthony Bourdain
I myself saw Yahoo become a $100 billion company and then become a $10 billion company, so you always have to look at valuations with a grain of salt and understand it is a point-in-time measure.
Brian Acton
Just as the great ocean has one taste, the taste of salt, so also this teaching and discipline has one taste, the taste of liberation.
Gautama Buddha
An umeboshi plum is a little Japensese salt plum. The best thing for motion sickness is to take one of these plums . . . and tape it to your belly button. I’m not kidding you. This really, really works.
Marilu Henner
‘Twas merry when You wagered on your angling, when your diver Did hang a salt fish on his hook, which he With fervency drew up.
William Shakespeare
Cooking for yourself is the only sure way to take back control of your diet from the food scientists and food processors, and to guarantee you’re eating real food rather than edible foodlike substances, with their unhealthy oils, high-fructose corn syrup, and surfeit of salt.
Michael Pollan
Nick’s just from this very Norman Rockwell-ish family. They’re very ‘American Gothic,’ and his parents are so kind, and they’re not brash people; they’re very soft spoken, salt of the earth.
Megan Mullally
I’m not trying to win an award for being the best vegetarian, just want to be healthy. Take a salt bath. Do things that my parents were never able to do. I’m blessed to do anything I want so I decide to take the best care of my body and my family in the same way. Holistically. Vitally.
Erykah Badu
It’s funny how the good things are all tied up with the bad. Sometimes it’s hard to tell which is which. But either way, you end up taking your sugar with your salt and your kicks with your kisses.
Kami Garcia
Time, we like to say, cures all. But maybe the old saying doesn’t mean time heals. Time cures a secret in its brine, keeping it and finally, paradoxically, destroying it. Nothing is left in that salt solution but the pain or rage, the biting shame that lodged it there. Even they are diluted or denied.
Patricia Hampl
Now and then, when I grow nostalgic about my ocean childhood – the wauling of gulls and the smell of salt, somebody solicitous will bundle me into a car and drive me to the nearest briny horizon.
Sylvia Plath
In 1847, two years before the greedy rush for gold began in California, the Mormons quietly began irrigating Utah’s Salt Lake Valley. In a sense, they were the first American irrigators of any significance. And their knowledge about the art of applying water to land has spread throughout the world.
Stuart Campbell
One should take writers’ valuations of their own work with a pinch of salt: they are likely to rank them differently tomorrow.
Howard Jacobson
People know me as Prakash Rai in Karnataka. Let it be so. But I’m known as Prakash Raj to the rest of India and abroad. Every actor worth his salt gets a name after coming to films.
Prakash Raj
Public posturing notwithstanding, when trash becomes a hit no filmmaker worth his salt takes it seriously.
Mahesh Manjrekar
It stinks to play terrible and your team loses. It’s like salt on the wound.
Stephen Gostkowski
If Obama wanted to make radical changes to America’s health long-term, all he has to do is treble the price of sugar and salt.
Jamie Oliver
People under-salt their food, and they think it’s bland, but salt brings out flavor.
David Burtka
There’s happens to be a volcano in the vicinity and there’s some talk about a volcano as well, so that’s the title Salt and Fire
Werner Herzog
We must infer that a plant or animal of any species, is made up of special units, in all of which there dwells the intrinsic aptitude to aggregate into the form of that species: just as in the atoms of a salt, there dwells the intrinsic aptitude to crystallize in a particular way.‎
Herbert Spencer
If salt ocean is the Great Mother from whom all life has sprung, fresh water is the Nurse entrusted to nourish life within her wanderings and around her wave-lapped margins.
Henry Williamson
Who ne’er knew salt, or heard the billows roar.
Mike Dukakis? He’s the salt of the earth.
Joe Biden
I prefer a good review. A bad review that dismisses us… I take it with a grain of salt. I go, ‘Okay, they didn’t even try.’
Benji Madden
When another editorial pops up denouncing millennials for some perceived generational flaw, I take it with a Miley Cyrus-sized grain of salt.
Neil Blumenthal
Wit, without wisdom, is salt without meat; and that is but a comfortless dish to set a hungry man down to.
George Horne
If evolution was worth its salt, by now it should’ve evolved something better than survival of the fittest. I think a better idea would be survival of the wittiest.
Jane Wagner
Millions of Millennials and Gen Zers were never exposed to the threats of the Soviet Union; they did not live through the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reforms of Mikhail Gorbachev; they do not remember the Mariel boatlift or the SALT treaties or the Cuban missile crisis.
Annie Lowrey
I’m probably borderline OCD. I insist on having all objects at right angles to each other. So a fork has to be at a right angle to the knife on the table. The salt and pepper pots have to be placed close together. Only recently have I started to notice it’s a weird way to behave.
Laura Haddock
We’re working on ways to make potable water from polluted water, whether it has organics in it or salt from the ocean, at very low energy input.
Dean Kamen
[The] whirlwind fife-and-drum of the storm bends the salt marsh grass, disturbs stars in the sky and the star on the steeple; it is a privilege to see so much confusion.
Marianne Moore
You have to take everything I say with a grain of salt.
Mark Wahlberg
So forgive me, love, if I cry in your shower. So forgive me, love, for the salt in your bed. So forgive me, love, if I cry all afternoon.
Alanis Morissette
You don’t realize how hard it is to live on your own. But there’s no mom to do your laundry, and make you dinner and to do things for you, and you don’t think about little things like buying paper towels and salt.
Emma Roberts
Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.
Stephen King
Continue to walk in the faith and, faithful to the mandate that has been entrusted to you, go out with solicitude and joy toward all creatures and pass on to them the gifts of salvation…Let yourselves be guided by the Holy Spirit to be the leaven of new life, salt of the earth and light of the world.
Pope Benedict XVI
To render aid to the worthless is sheer waste. Rain does not freshen the Dead Sea, but only enables it to dissolve more salt.
George Iles
Each horizon, each place holds its own evolutionary power be it the prairie or the plateaus, the mountains or the marshes at Great Salt Lake. For me, this is the nature of peace. Our task is to learn how to see it, feel it, hear it, and care for these places as our own home ground.
Terry Tempest Williams
My style is Edie Sedgwick meets Grace Jones, or Audrey Hepburn meets Salt ‘n’ Pepa. Strong and feisty but still classic.
Mangroves, salt marshes and sea grass lock away carbon at up to five times the rate of tropical forests.
Frances Beinecke
Whether it is salt farmers in India embracing solar power or wind companies creating tens of thousands of jobs in America, people are providing a vision for the clean energy future.
Frances Beinecke
Salt is white and pure – there is something holy in salt.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Wit – the salt with which the American humorist spoils his intellectual cookery by leaving it out.
Ambrose Bierce
Gentle reader, I was born upon the water – not upon the salt and angry ocean, but upon the fresh and rapid-flowing river.
Frederick Marryat
We should not forget that when we limp away afflicted through the spirit, it is not to the factory gates or to the corporate steps we pilgrimage. Instead we go to the sea for its salt. We find shade under the sycamores on the great avenues. Or we go to the rivers where water tells us modestly of its own sickness.
Sarah Hall
If you type ‘Salt Flats’ into YouTube, you’ll find 100 amazing videos that were shot out there, but you won’t find any that were shot in the rain.
Casey Neistat
We all indulge in the strange, pleasant process called thinking, but when it comes to saying, even to someone opposite, what we think, then how little we are able to convey! The phantom is through the mind and out of the window before we can lay salt on
Virginia Woolf
I love being natural. I never feel more beautiful then after I’ve been to the beach and my hair’s just a crazy mess of salt curls, or when I’ve just been outside all day hiking.
Troian Bellisario
One thing I’ve learned is I actually don’t like variety very much. I like having the same thing over and over: assorted lean proteins, arugula salad, quinoa or brown rice with soy sauce, olive oil, lemon, and salt. Those ingredients can pretty much get me through the week.
Lauren Graham
For lack of a few pinches of ordinary iodised table salt in the diet of a third world pregnant mother, a child can lose up to ten IQ (Intelligence Quotient) points.
Sheryl WuDunn
I think that there’s too much sugar in the world and not enough salt. Kids want to be challenged. Humans want to aspire to something. You don’t win in life and you don’t win in athletics with softness or selfishness.
Buzz Williams
The whole nature of man presupposes woman, both physically and spiritually. His system is tuned into woman from the start, just as it is prepared for a quite definite world where there is water, light, air, salt, carbohydrates etc.
Carl Jung
I use a lot of citrus for seasoning. There’s lemon or lime juice in just about everything, and that balances with salt very nicely. Things like toasted cumin seeds for the beans. The use of fresh herbs like oregano and cilantro.
Steve Ells
Salt is the policeman of taste: it keeps the various flavors of a dish in order and restrains the stronger from tyrannizing over the weaker.
Margaret Visser
I love Epsom salt and just use the inexpensive unscented ones from CVS. It’s better than oils… those make the tub so gross, and I never feel like cleaning it right before I go out.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld
I planned to stop in 2002 after the Salt Lake City Olympics. I felt able to remain competitive another four years, and I wanted to stop while I’m still at the top.
Hermann Maier
If you look at the purported dangers of salt or fat, there is no consensus of support in scientific literature. So I would ask first: ‘Is it possible to have an informed government that actually follows the science?’ From what I’ve seen, it’s not likely.
Tim Ferriss
some mornings… I sit at the kitchen table shaking salt into the hairs on my arm, and a feeling shoves up in me: it’s finished. Everything went past without me.
Jennifer Egan
As the salt flavors every drop in the Atlantic, so does sin affect every atom of our nature. It is so sadly there, so abundantly there, that if you cannot detect it, you are deceived.
Charles Spurgeon
I discovered surfing, which I absolutely fell in love with. That feels good and kind of keeps your body aligned, so does the salt water.
Anthony Kiedis
A splash of red wine vinegar can pull things together like a pinch of salt.
Alex Guarnaschelli
Every one of our 10,000 taste buds is wired for sugar. But we aren’t born liking salt – we develop a taste for it at about 6 months.
Michael Moss
I love eating clean. Like for lunch, I’ll have a wrap with hummus, avocado, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers and bell peppers with a little bit of olive oil and pink Himalayan salt.
Camille Kostek
Any actor worth his salt has a responsibility to reinvent himself from part to part.
Matt Smith
Peace is achieved with rice and salt, not with katanas and arrows
Uesugi Kenshin
If you ever go to Temple Square in Salt Lake City, if you stay there long enough, you’ll see a homeless person standing in the middle of their nice, beautiful square, holding out a cup for change. And the Mormons don’t ever ask him to leave.
Trey Parker
Even that was all consumed after two days, and the patients had to try to choke down fresh fish, just boiled in water, without salt, pepper or butter; mutton, beef, and potatoes without the faintest seasoning.
Nellie Bly
Nothing is going to happen to you if you throw salt on the floor, stand under a ladder, or see eight black cats on the street.
Penelope Cruz
….”we saw this big dark red leech hanging off his back. We were dancing round yelling: ‘We’ll burn it off! Get the petrol! Stay still Mr Kassar, you can trust us!’ He wimped out though, and made us use salt. Very boring.
John Marsden
Many women… have buoyed me up in times of weariness and stress. Each friend was important… Their words have seasoned my life. Influence, just like salt shaken out, is hard to see, but its flavor is hard to miss.
Pam Farrel
He’d thought he was lost, but now he recognized that eternity was around him, like salt from a shaker or stars in the sky.
Alice Hoffman
Sadness isn’t sadness. It’s happiness in a black jacket. Tears are not tears. They’re balls of laughter dipped in salt. Death is not death. It’s life that’s jumped off a tall cliff.
Paul McCartney
All the sea-gods are dead.
You, Venus, come home
To your salt maidenhead.
Allen Tate
Pork – no animal is more used for nourishment and none more indispensable in the kitchen; employed either fresh or salt, all is useful, even to its bristles and its blood; it is the superfluous riches of the farmer, and helps to pay the rent of the cottager.
Alexis Soyer
No man is worth his salt who is not ready at all times to risk his well-being, to risk his body, to risk his life, in a great cause.
Theodore Roosevelt
If you’re a social scientist worth your salt, you never do a univariate analysis.
Jordan Peterson
The biggest problem with Bill Schutz’s food is his timidity with herbs and spices and some bizarre primeval fear of salt.
Marian Burros
The Internet can be an enlightening place… you have to take it with a grain of salt.
Jim Harbaugh
Exploration was for those with a measure of peasant blood, those with big thighs and thick ankles who could take punishment as they took bread and salt, on every inch of flesh and spirit.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
There are only three questions that matter in the kitchen if you’re cooking and not baking. The first is how good are your ingredients; the second is how much salt to add; and the third is how long to cook whatever it is you’re cooking – the question of doneness.
Tom Junod
All the criticism and all of the praise, it doesn’t – it’s not worth the salt that goes on my bread, because TV is fickle. You can be loved one day and hated the next day. One day, you’re getting an award. And the next day, you’re getting a death threat.
Nancy Grace
If you consume too much salt, it can cause water retention. When this happens, your body usually responds by raising your blood pressure to push excess fluid and salt out of your system.
Michael Greger
It doesn’t seem to matter what we think…The prince will come up here and look at us as if we’re barrels in a trader’s wagon. And if I’m salt pork and he doesn’t care for salt pork, then there’s nothing I can do.
Shannon Hale
The civilization of the twentieth century cannot be universal except by being a dynamic synthesis of all the cultural values of all civilizations. It will be monstrous unless it is seasoned with the salt of negri-tude, for it will be without the savor of humanity.
Leopold Sedar Senghor
I studied every page of this book, and I didn’t find enough love to fill a salt shaker. God is not love in the Bible; God is vengeance, from Alpha to Omega.
Ruth Hurmence Green
Women are the salt of our lives. They give it flavour.
Santiago Calatrava
Sometimes we need the salt of tears to remind us how to savor the sweetness of life.
Lysa TerKeurst
The outdoors, the beautiful environment, both in fresh and salt water. And the thing that concerns me is the amount of kids that stand on street corners, or go into pinball parlours, and call it recreation.
Rex Hunt
In 2014, Utah cities Salt Lake City and Provo both surpassed Silicon Valley in per-deal venture capital averages. From large, multi-campus companies to promising start-ups, Silicon Slopes offers a promising climate for businesses. The entire tech industry has its eyes on Utah.
Gary Herbert
It’s important to salt the tomatoes before draining them because that helps pull out the water. Fresh herbs, some garlic and pepper will also enhance the flavor.
Geoffrey Zakarian
A Good School deserves to be call’d, the very Salt of the Town, that hath it.
Cotton Mather
Once I came to Salt Lake City, I didn’t want to go anywhere else. It was home sweet home for me.
John Stockton
A good way to lose weight is to put salt on your ass and go to a petting zoo. But stay away from goats because I’ve seen them fornicate with a mail box.
Gary Busey
There are in every generation those who shrink from the ultimate sacrifice, but there are in every generation those who make it with joy and laughter and these are the salt of the generations.
Patrick Pearse
Wit is the salt of conversation, not the food.
William Hazlitt
Let there be justice for all. Let there be peace for all. Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all. Let each know that for each the body, the mind and the soul have been freed to fulfill themselves.
Nelson Mandela
That was such an important time for us, as a team. It was our second gold medal in a row, following Salt Lake City, and really established ourselves as the best team in the world.
Hayley Wickenheiser
Ever since I took the plunge into active politics, I faced a fair amount of attacks and criticism from political rivals, and I had learnt to take it with a pinch of salt.
I never met a librarian worth his or her salt who didn’t perceive my passion for books.
Frank Delaney
Learn to cook brown rice with a little salt and butter or olive oil. Learn to boil noodles properly or saute onions right. Once you get those basics down, you’ll be all good and feel more confident.
Damaris Phillips
Liberty is no heirloom. It requires the daily bread of self-denial, the salt of law and, above all, the backbone of acknowledging responsibility for our deeds.
Fulton J. Sheen
I was greatly affected by a guy named Rob Briner, who died about five years ago, who wrote a book called “Roaring Lambs”, which is a book on how to be salt and light in the secular community.
John C. Maxwell
Sleeping as quiet as death, side by wrinkled side, toothless, salt and brown, like two old kippers in a box.
Dylan Thomas
A diet that is high in fat, sugar and salt makes it really hard for a body to function efficiently.
Tamra Davis
I like to take mustard baths. I combine 4 lbs Epsom salts, 3 oz mustard powder, 12 oz powdered milk, and 1/2 cup baking soda, add in 12 drops each of rosemary and eucalyptus essential oils, then whisk it and pour 1/4 cup of the mix into the tub while warm water is running.
Natalie Coughlin
With all of the holiday cheer in the air, it’s easy to overlook the ingredients in the foods. Ingredients such as salt, sugar, and fat – all of which leads to diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, strokes, heart disease, and cancer.
Lee Haney
Age is not enviable in America. It’s not applauded all that strongly. You have to take it all with a grain of salt.
Anjelica Huston
I have become an orchid
washed in on the salt white beach.
what can I make of it now
that might please you-
this life, already wasted
and still strewn with miracles?
Mary Ruefle
A wise woman puts a grain of sugar into everything she says to a man, and takes a grain of salt with everything he says to her.
Helen Rowland
I just finished touring, and I’m on a detox thing. It’s a heavy detox, so nothing in my belly except water, salt, and cayenne pepper.
Eddie Vedder
The Family is the salt of the earth and the light of the world, it is the leaven of society.
Pope Francis
The Bible says that Christians are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. On the job, in the grocery store, even among unsaved friends and family members, God’s people are there to bring seasoning to an unsavory situation.
Joyce Meyer
I had lunch with a chess champion the other day. I knew he was a chess champion because it took him 20 minutes to pass the salt.
Eric Sykes
When I was a kid it was big news when someone flew around the world in a little aeroplane, but nobody cared when I did it. Then, to rub salt into my wounds, the customs people ripped my aeroplane to pieces, looking for stuff.
Gary Numan
I left Montana in Spring of 1866, for Utah, arriving at Salt Lake city during the summer.
Calamity Jane
In terms of foods for me, I think I have more of the usual associations – foods from childhood that I associate with care and love, from relatives or special restaurants like the kind elderly man who dusted seasoning salt on French fries at the corner burger joint.
Aimee Bender
Hypertension is an important risk factor for kidney disease, but dietary sodium has other damaging effects on the kidneys. High salt intake drives the production of oxygen radicals, leading to oxidative stress in kidney tissue.
Joel Fuhrman
I had an agent in Salt Lake City, but acting was more like a hobby.
Patrick Fugit
I want to express my deepest apology to the athletes, the people of Salt Lake City in Utah and the millions of citizens worldwide who love and respect the games.
Juan Antonio Samaranch
Dry skin is unhappy, damage-prone skin, so apply a product to protect it from summertime drying agents like sunburns, salt and chlorine.
Paul Nassif
Death is the universal salt of states; Blood is the base of all things–law and war.
Philip James Bailey
It’s all in fun. I take everything with a grain of salt.
Hope Solo
Slow and steady wins the race, then wastes no time grinding salt-caked glass in your open wounds.
R. K. Milholland
New Jerseyans knew that the SALT deduction cap would hurt.
Mikie Sherrill
The cocoa-nut palm grows best near salt water, no matter how loose and sandy the soil is, and in these congenial circumstances needs neither manure nor care of any kind. It bends lovingly toward the sea and drops its ripe fruit into it.
Isabella Bird
I find it really hard to relate to the Bond women or Angelina Jolie in ‘Salt.’ And of course it’s informed by my experiences and the people I’ve met along the way and the places I’ve been.
Valerie Plame
Earnestness is the salt of eloquence.
Victor Hugo
Risk is the salt and sugar of life.
Freya Stark
I love a good, old-fashioned sliced apple sprinkled with salt and cinnamon, and sometimes cayenne, to enhance the flavor and give it a kick.
Mandy Ingber
“Do you know a cure for me?” Why yes,” he said, “I know a cure for everything. Salt water.” Salt water?” I asked him. Yes,” he said, “in one way or the other. Sweat, or tears, or the salt sea”.
Isak Dinesen
I thought I am kissing pain and pain belongs to You as happiness never does. I love You in Your pain. I could almost taste metal and salt in the skin, and I thought, How good you are. You might have killed us with happiness, but You let us be with You in pain.
Graham Greene
Salt has a greater impact on flavor than any other ingredient. Learn to use it well, and food will taste good.
Samin Nosrat
I always tried to move up the food chain. I started with cement and then moved into textiles and banking. When I was trading sugar, I added salt and flour so that then we could do pasta. And then I thought, why not make the bag for it, too? So, we started making packaging.
Aliko Dangote
Be not affronted at a joke. If one throw salt at thee, thou wilt receive no harm, unless thou art raw.
Oliver Goldsmith
When it comes to salt, what was really staggering to me is that the industry itself is totally hooked on salt. It is this miracle ingredient that solves all of their problems. There is the flavor burst to the salt itself, but it also serves as a preservative, so foods can stay on the shelves for months.
Michael Moss
Too few of us, perhaps, feel that breaking of bread, the sharing of salt, the common dipping into one bowl, mean more than satisfaction of a need. We make such primal things as casual as tunes heard over a radio, forgetting the mystery and strength in both.
M. F. K. Fisher
I don’t order take-out sushi for the fish. Unless I’m spending a lot of money to eat at a phenomenal sushi restaurant, I eat it for the rice, which is perfectly seasoned with a mixture of salt, sugar, and rice vinegar.
Chris Morocco
They say that Salt Lake is a great place to raise a family – and I know that sounds like something people just say. But you spend enough time here… and you realize that it’s true.
Gordon Hayward
things that have cost more than they’re worth leave a bitter taste. A taste of salt and sweat.
Josephine Winslow Johnson
Salt is like good-humor, and nearly every thing is better for a pinch of it.
Louisa May Alcott
Whoever you are, whatever you are, start with that, whether salt of the earth or only white sugar.
Alice Walker
My dirty little secret is that I hate running. I don’t like cardio. I also really like food, and all kinds of food – bread, chocolate, all of the yummy stuff. I up my cardio quite a bit and I start cutting out carbs, sugar, and salt just to try to get as lean as I can.
Christopher Gorham
I’m not nearly the saint some of my fans imagine and I’m nowhere near the devil my detractors wish, so you simply take both of those with a grain of salt.
Ken Wilber
It is a common saying that many pecks of salt must be eaten before the duties of friendship can be discharged.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Any writer worth his salt writes to please himself…It’s a self-exploratory operation that is endless. An exorcism of not necessarily his demon, but of his divine discontent.
Harper Lee
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
I have yet to find a man worth his salt in any direction who did not think of himself first and foremost.
George Jean Nathan
But after all, the villains are the salt in the soup of a story.
Cornelia Funke
I’m a very un-excitable person. I always take things with a grain of salt, I’m always very even-keeled, and I’m always waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Mike Colter
If you have older children who avoid you like the plague, buy yourself some expensive bath salts, run a hot tub, and settle in for a long soak. Teenagers who haven’t talked to you since their tenth birthday will bang on the door, demanding your immediate attention.
Teresa Bloomingdale
Maxims and aphorisms, let us remember that wisdom is the true salt of literature, and the books that are most nourishing are richly stored with it, and that is the main object to seek in reading books.
John Morley, 1st Viscount Morley of Blackburn
The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.
Isak Dinesen
Salt is so, so, so important. If that’s the one thing everyone remembers, every step of the way, whenever I cook, I try to incorporate salt.
Antoni Porowski
A good apology is like antibiotic, a bad apology is like rubbing salt in the wound.
Randy Pausch
Like any organizer worth their salt, I’m open to critique, but I won’t be bullied or treated badly. I’m an imperfect human, and as such, I have a proclivity to make mistakes. And while I make mistakes, I am not my mistakes.
Patrisse Cullors
Salt is born of the purest parents: the sun and the sea.
You [Robespierre] will follow us soon. Your house will be beaten down and salt sown in the place where it stood.
Georges Danton
The media, is media. You always have to take the media with a grain of salt. You can’t believe everything you read.
Katy Perry
I’ve got a song called ‘Salt Skin’ because when you run in the heat it evaporates and you’ve got salt crystals on your face. I love that, because it means you’ve worked really hard.
Ellie Goulding
Knowing what I know now, any photographer worth his salt could make some beautiful things with pinhole cameras.
Ansel Adams
Grief rolled across the space between us like a wash of salt water.
Sue Grafton
When I was a kid, my idea of heaven on a hot summer day was fresh cut-up watermelon, Breakstone’s cottage cheese, and a sprinkle of salt.
Claire Saffitz
Kosher salt, eggs and flour. These are the building blocks of everything. Kosher salt, above and beyond everything.
Graham Elliot
What is life worth without trials and tribulations which are the salt of life.
Mahatma Gandhi
Now the great winds shoreward blow Now the salt tides seaward flow Now the wild white horses play Champ and chafe and toss in the spray.
Matthew Arnold
Fattier, expensive cuts like prime rib or New York strip are celebratory centerpieces that do best when simply roasted with salt and pepper and served straight away.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
Any entrepreneur worth their salt knows that their brand is worthless if it doesn’t somehow contribute to society or the overall good of the planet.
Lynda Resnick
Any historian worth their salt should be aware of wars, conflicts, catastrophes. They happen. This is part of the panorama.
Norman Davies
What’s special about Salt Lake, it’s a small, tight-knit, close community.
Donovan Mitchell
I rub a mixture of honey and salt all over my body to moisturise and exfoliate. You wash it off and your skin is gorgeous.
Catherine Zeta-Jones
There was a fantastic old shack I used to go to. It didn’t look much from the outside but this man was selling the best stuff ever. He’d just take the catch and cook it up with butter, lemon and salt and then bung some chips with it and it was delicious.
Rick Stein
I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt.
Cormac McCarthy
When I got to Salt Lake City, in the summer of 2010 – I know it’s a cliche, but man, it’s the truth: I was just a kid.
Gordon Hayward
First, the avid student must be aware that when the world was young it knew only seven things: water, life and death, salt, night, birds and the length of an hour.
Catherynne M. Valente
We all know what the moon does to the ocean in the form of tides. Well, we are about 85% salt water; don’t you think it is also affecting you? Maybe you cannot quantify that effect along with zillions of other effects, but certainly you are being affected.
Bryan Kest
The truth is like salt. Men want to taste
a little, but too much makes everyone
Joe Abercrombie
For an Apple is in it self a little Universe; the Seed, hotter than the other parts thereof, is its Sun, which diffuses about it self that natural Heat which preserves its Globe: And in the Onion, the Germ is the little Sun of that little World, which vivifies and nourishes the vegetative Salt of that little mass.
Cyrano de Bergerac
I have a wonderful family: My parents are churchgoing, salt-of-the-earth Southern people. They gave me a lot of love and are so unaffected by fame.
Faith Hill
Gravy is the simplest, tastiest, most memory-laden dish I know how to make: a little flour, salt and pepper, crispy bits of whatever meat anchored the meal, a couple of cups of water or milk and slow stirring to break up lumps.
Dorothy Allison
I come from a family of screamers. If they are trying to express any emotion or idea beyond pass the salt, it comes in shrieks.
Elizabeth Wurtzel
I could fall in love with a cruel desert that kills without passion, a canyon full of scorpions, one thousand blinding arctic storms, a century sealed in a cave, a river of molten salt flowing down my throat. But never with you.
Henry Rollins
If the Internet is worth its salt, it has to help arrest the forces that promote inequality, monopoly, hypercommercialism, corruption, depoliticization and stagnation.
Robert Waterman McChesney
To struggle when hope is banished! To live when life’s salt is gone! To dwell in a dream that’s vanished! To endure, and go calmly on! The brave man is not he who feels no fear, For that were stupid and irrational; But he, whose noble soul its fear subdues, And bravely dares the danger nature shrinks from.
Joanna Baillie
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
A woman without paint is like food without salt.
I am fairly tired–bored beyond endurance–by the world we live in, and its ideals, and am ready to say so, not violently, but kindly, as one rubs salt into the back of a flogged sailor as though one loved him.
Henry Adams
I never understood that if you sweat as much as I used to every night, you drain your body of salts. So I got very, very, seriously ill. I got to the stage where I was almost hospitalized with serious problems.
Roger Daltrey
We wish to discuss a structure for the salt of deoxyribose nucleic acid. D.N.A. This structure has novel features which are of considerable biologic interest.
Rosalind Franklin
The flavour of life is love. The salt of life is also love.
Mariama BГў
Wit is the salt of conversation, not the food, and few things in the world are more wearying than a sarcastic attitude towards life.
Agnes Repplier
I don’t love you as if you were the salt-rose, topaz or arrow of carnations that propagate fire: I love you as certain dark things are loved, secretly, between the shadow and the soul.
Pablo Neruda
Just as the Salt Lake Temple took 40 years to build, stone by stone, you are building a virtuous life, step by step.
Mary N. Cook
Salt, when dissolved in water, may disappear, but it does not cease to exist. We can be sure of its presence by tasting the water. Likewise, the indwelling Christ, though unseen, will be made evident to others from the love which he imparts to us.
Sadhu Sundar Singh
I think a lot of education has to be involved. If they would have alternative items, so that, say, for a dollar more, you can get breakfast tacos stuffed with egg whites, and olive oil, and avocado; not guacamole, because they put the salt in it. Just ask for fresh avocado slices, and you could have that.
Sandra Cisneros
I actually don’t get massages very much. But Epsom salt baths are better than any massage.
Emilia Clarke
Growing up in a Jewish matriarchal world inside the patriarchal paradise of Salt Lake City, Utah, gave me increased perspective on gender issues, as it also did my gay brother and my lesbian sister. Our younger sister is the perfect Jewish-American wife and mother, and is fiercely proud of that fact.
Roseanne Barr
I had always dreamed of being an Olympian, and something clicked inside of me. I knew I had to move to Salt Lake City and make this dream a reality.
Brittany Bowe
Fish without wine is like egg without salt.
Auguste Escoffier
If you salt a chicken the day before cooking, it starts to break down the cell structure of the meat and allows it to take on more flavor and actually helps it to stay more moist. Same goes for a steak, a pork chop. A lot of people brine; we preseason.
Michael Symon
The British cook, for her iniquities, is a foolish woman who should be turned into a pillar of salt which she never knows how to use.
Oscar Wilde
Why? You want to know why? Step into a tanning booth and fry yourself for two or three days. After your skin bubbles and peels off, roll in coarse salt, then pull on long underwear woven from spun glass and razor wire. Over that goes your regular clothes, as long as they are tight.
Laurie Halse Anderson
Each year, food companies use an amount of salt that is every bit as staggering as it sounds: 5 billion pounds.
Michael Moss
I would say that I mostly use Kosher Salt for seasoning my water and flour. I love sea salt, too. I think both are just fine, as long as it’s not iodized salt.
Wolfgang Puck
I love Twitter, but some people use profanity so much that at some point it’s like saying, ‘Pass the salt.’
Bill Cosby
When it comes to your personal life, such as love and romance, girls should take a tip from the men and keep their affairs to themselves. Any man worth his salt regards his private life as his own. To kiss a girl and run and tell would mark him as a cad. Why doesn’t that apply to girls also?
Carole Lombard
Oh salty sea, how much of your salt Is tears from Portugal?
Fernando Pessoa
We love salt, fat and sugar. We’re hard-wired to go for those flavors. They trip our dopamine networks, which are our craving networks.
Michael Pollan
Salt Lake City gave me a lot of surprises. How progressive the city actually is, for instance, compared to the rest of Utah – it’s like this purple dot in a sea of red. And the government there is kind of a mix of conservative values and progressive ideas.
Larry Wilmore
A consultant to be worth his salt must give honest judgments not necessarily those which he thinks the clients would like to hear.
Andrew Thomas
Women? I’m still working on the subject. I haven’t finished my studies. I would say I’m so happy that they’re around. This is the salt and pepper of life. This is what makes me wake up in the morning – even more than work, really.
Vincent Cassel
I really dislike flavoured potato chips, and so I always insist on just potatoes and salt, y’know? But that’s not weird.
Joe Satriani
Holy is the dish and drain, the soap and sink, and the cup and plate and the warm wool socks, and the cold white tile, showerheads and good dry towelsand frying eggs sound like psalms, with bits of salt measured in my palm. It’s all a part of a sacrament, as holy as a day is spent.
Carrie Newcomer
This is kind of weird, but I eat lemons with salt as snack. They’re so good!
Becky G
Talent is a dreadfully cheap commodity, cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work and study; a constant process of honing. Talent is a dull knife that will cut nothing unless it is wielded with great force.
Stephen King
As Christians continue to be vilified let us continue to rejoice and be exceedingly glad. It means we are salt, light and with Him.
R. C. Sproul, Jr.
I don’t like lakes generally. It’s a glorified pond, isn’t it? I live by the sea, so for me I need to taste salt. I prefer the mystery, the majesty of the sea.
Gino D’Acampo
A time will come, when fields will be manured with a solution of glass (silicate of potash), with the ashes of burnt straw, and with the salts of phosphoric acid, prepared in chemical manufactories, exactly as at present medicines are given for fever and goitre.
Justus von Liebig
Bread without love is like grass without salt — the stomach may be filled, but it leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
Leonid Andreyev
In Physic, things of melancholic hue and quality are used against melancholy, sour against sour, salt to remove salt humors.
John Milton
Salt is the only rock directly consumed by man. It corrodes but preserves, desiccates but is wrested from the water. … It preserves things from corruption – even as it corrodes other things with its bite. A little of it fertilizes the land; a lot sterilizes it.
Margaret Visser
Retrospectively, I would agree with Luis Bunuel that sex without sin is like an egg without salt.
Carlos Fuentes
Presidents and presidential assassins are like Las Vegas and Salt Lake City. Even though one city is all about sin and the other is all about salvation, they are identical, one-dimensional company towns built up by the sheer will of true believers.
Sarah Vowell
Most smoked salts are made with liquid smoke, which is a condensate, but really, really good smoked salt is literally smoked.
Grant Achatz
We are the salt of the earth, mind you, not the sugar. Our ministry is to truly cleanse and not just to change the taste.
Vance Havner
Sugar is my friend, not my love. I always season sugar with a bit of acid or salt. Listen to your tongue.
Sherry Yard
If you put butter and salt on it, it tastes like salty butter.
Terry Pratchett
New York City is like the appetizer table at a Jewish wedding, loaded with salt and spice and cholesterol and flavor, with a waiter holding out pleasure in his right hand and indigestion in his left. If you’ve got the bucks, this burg has the bangs.
Leonore Fleischer
I like the hot-cold, the sugar-salt, being able to play over-the-top and dramatic things – in the same film. Just as in my life, I can be very funny and at other times almost extinguished.
Jean Dujardin
Before you know what kindness really is you must lose things, feel the future dissolve in a moment like salt in a weakened broth.
Naomi Shihab Nye
In a crisis, the man worth his salt is the man who meets the needs of the situation in whatever way is necessary.
Theodore Roosevelt
Pluto’s warm-up is a reminder that no matter where you are climate happens. It always has, it always will – with or without SUVs. And it should remind us to continue taking with an ever-increasing grain of salt these claims that your car acts as a weather machine.
Chris Horner
Stay away from iodized table salt. It’s just bad and doesn’t help food taste good.
Wolfgang Puck
I define sexy as a real salt-of-the-earth woman who knows who she is, who feels strong and powerful.
Andie MacDowell
Any man worth his salt loves a feminist. Only men who are afraid of the feminine in themselves are afraid of women.
Brit Marling
Of course I have used dissonance in my time, but there has been too much dissonance. Bach used dissonance as good salt for his music. Others applied pepper, seasoned the dishes more and more highly, till all healthy appetites were sick and until the music was nothing but pepper.
Sergei Prokofiev
I went to a restaurant with my friend, and he said, “Pass the salt.” I said, “Screw you! Sit closer to the salt.”
Mitch Hedberg
It is what we imagine knowledge to be:
dark, salt, clear, moving, utterly free,
drawn from the cold hard mouth
of the world, derived from the rocky breasts
forever, flowing and drawn, and since
our knowledge is historical, flowing, and flown.
Elizabeth Bishop
I’ve been more conscious of my salt intake, sugar intake, making sure I’m not eating as many processed foods.
Monica Denise Brown
I’m very sensitive to salt. I always see and feel a big difference in my body when I eat it, so I try to consume salt in moderation.
Mary Helen Bowers
Don’t bring the ocean if I feel thirsty, nor heaven if I ask for a light; but bring a hint, some dew, a particle, as birds carry only drops away from water, and the wind a grain of salt.
