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.

Sergei Prokofiev
During one new moon at perigee, I stood on high ground, watching salt ponds overflow, cover the beach, and meet the ocean. Because the moon was invisible, the water was black as it drowned the sand, and the event felt primal – which in fact it was, because it was nature.

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 pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain in life remains the same, exactly the same. But the amount of bitterness we taste depends on the container we put the pain in. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of thingsstop being a glass. Become a lake.
Mark Nepo
Things that become important to economies become ritualized and become deified. Because I’m Jewish, I always thought it was interesting that in Judaism, salt seals a bargain, particularly the covenant with God. Some people, when they bless bread, they dip it in salt. Same thing exists in Islam.

The salt blowing off the sea makes the air feel textured and heavy.

Sadhu Sundar Singh
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

Richard McGuire
Who ne’er knew salt, or heard the billows roar.
‘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

Dylan Thomas
My favorite record I’ve ever done is Rock Salt and Nails. It was recorded in ’68-’69 and released in ’69. There’s something about that record I really like.

When the heart is cut or cracked or broken Do not clutch it Let the wound lie open Let the wind from the good old sea blow in to bathe the wound with salt and let it sting. Let a stray dog lick it Let a bird fly in the hole and sing a simple song like a tiny bell and let it ring.
Michael Leunig
The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.
Isak Dinesen

Philip Yancey
It was necessary to organize my career to remain at the top level until Salt Lake City.

Samantha Stosur
I don’t care about the quality of the film as a whole, but I loved ‘Salt.’ I loved it!

Randy Pausch
I crave cantaloupe like a crazy person. But I put salt all over it, so I don’t know if it’s that healthy.

Paul Caponigro
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Salt. Wound. Together at last.
Maureen Johnson
Whoever you are, whatever you are, start with that, whether salt of the earth or only white sugar.

Wyndham Lewis
Knowing what I know now, any photographer worth his salt could make some beautiful things with pinhole cameras.

Scott Walker
I like interacting with fans, and I like hearing what they say, but you have to take it all with a grain of salt.

emptied of life.

Alain Ducasse
I eat only white foods: eggs, sugar, grated bones, the fat of dead animals; veal, salt, coconut, chicken cooked in white water; fruit mold, rice, turnips; camphorated sausage, dough, cheese (white), cotton salad, and certain fish (skinless).
Erik Satie
Now no joy but lacks salt That is not dashed with pain And weariness and fault; I crave the stain Of tears, the aftermark Of almost too much love, The sweet of bitter bark And burning clove.
Robert Frost
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
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
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
The biggest problem with Bill Schutz’s food is his timidity with herbs and spices and some bizarre primeval fear of salt.
Marian Burros
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.

Uesugi Kenshin

Billy Collins

Harriet Lerner
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
I played with Joey Mullen back in Salt Lake City before he got called up to St. Louis. He was the first player ever to score 20 goals in the American League and 20 in the NHL. I’ve kept in contact with him and he’s a great guy.

When the red star bleeds and the darkness gathers, Azor Ahai shall be born again amidst smoke and salt to wake dragons out of stone.

Yvonne Strahovski
I define sexy as a real salt-of-the-earth woman who knows who she is, who feels strong and powerful.

John Stuart Mill
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.

Charlotte Rae
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
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!

Will Rogers
There is no savor more sweet, more salt than to be glad to be what, woman, and who, myself, I am.
Denise Levertov
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
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.
Thrity Umrigar
Salt represents the civilized: it requires know-how to get it, and a sophisticated combination of cooking and spoilt, jaded appetites to need it.
Margaret Visser
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
Of all smells, bread; of all tastes, salt.
George Herbert
People will want to say this or that about you, but take it with a pinch of salt.
Daniel Sturridge
… because real thoughts come from outside and travel with us like the noodle soup we take to work; in other words, inquisitors burn books in vain. If a book has anything to say, it burns with a quiet laugh, because any book worth its salt points up and out of itself.
Bohumil Hrabal
I couldn’t really take a girl from Berlin to live in Leeds. I love it here. I miss the Yorkshire sense of humor and things like bitter and Yorkshire puddings, but I can still get my hands on salt ‘n’ vinegar crisps.
Sam Riley
Wit is the salt of conversation, not the food.
William Hazlitt
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
I’m trying to take all the media attention with a grain of salt. It is nice, but you are never as great as people say you are. And you’re never as bad as others say you are.
Kelly Olynyk
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
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
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. Well, the food industry knows that, and they spend huge amounts of effort finding the perfect spot, not just for sugar, but for fat and salt, as well.
Michael Moss
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
So many car commercials are shot in the Salt Flats, and so much great imagery comes out of that place, but I’ve never been there, and I’m curious.
Casey Neistat
Before, you only had one Public Enemy and one Rakim and one Salt ‘N’ Pepa. Now, people have got the formula, and some of them are just doing it for the cheque. It’s kind of watered down.
Missy Elliott
If whisky or salt won’t cure it, then to hell with it. I worry about important things.
Florence King
The Internet can be an enlightening place… you have to take it with a grain of salt.
Jim Harbaugh
Good-quality nuts, toasted in a little butter and salt, make a magical addition to many salads.
Yotam Ottolenghi
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
What I really hoped for, no doubt, was to come upon one of those lives which begin nowhere, which lead us through marshes and salt flats, trickling away, seemingly without plan, purpose or goal, and suddenly emerge, gushing like geysers, and never cease gushing, even in death.
Henry Miller
Passion is the salt of life, and that at the times when we are under its spell this salt is indispensable to us, even if we have got along very well without it before.
Francoise Sagan
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
Stars, I have seen them fall, But when they drop and die No star is lost at all From all the star-sown sky. The toil of all that be Helps not the primal fault; It rains into the sea And still the sea is salt.
A. E. Housman
While many processed foods are full of salt, and excessive salt intake is associated with hypertension and other conditions, salt is essential to health. It can be dangerous to have too low a sodium intake.
Harley Pasternak
Every body consists of three ingredients. The names of these are Sulphur, Mercury, and Salt.
[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
When life gives you lemons, get tequila and salt.
Sanjaya Malakar
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
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
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
I’m really old-fashioned. An Epsom salt bath, that’s genuinely better than any massage.
Emilia Clarke
Any historian worth their salt should be aware of wars, conflicts, catastrophes. They happen. This is part of the panorama.
Norman Davies
No matter how you slice it, limiting the SALT deduction forces New Jersey families to spend even more to subsidize Americans in less economically productive states, which take more than they ever give back to the federal government.
Bob Menendez
“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
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
It was only when the salt water of my tears ran into my cuts and made them sting that I discovered I was crying.
Marian Keyes
What I’ve learned is Twitter is only a bubble – take it with a pinch of salt.
Shirley Ballas
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
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
I went to Salt Lake City and the Mormons tried to convert me, but when I found they forbade tea and tobacco I thought it was no religion for me.
Bertrand Russell
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
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
Business is the salt of life, which not only gives a grateful smack to it, but dries up those crudities that would offend, preserves from putrefaction and drives off all those blowing flies that would corrupt it.
Owen Feltham
In parts of Montana, salt concentrations in soil water, have reached those double those of seawater.
Jared Diamond
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
I had always been told the bible was a book about love, but I couldn’t find enough love in it to fill a salt shaker. God is not love in the bible; God is vengeance. There is no other book between whose covers life is so cheap.
Ruth Hurmence Green
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
Some of the environmental lobbyists of the Western nations are the salt of the earth, but many of them are elitists.
Norman Borlaug
I left Montana in Spring of 1866, for Utah, arriving at Salt Lake city during the summer.
Calamity Jane

Vance Havner
A woman without paint is like food without salt.
Trust no one unless you have eaten much salt with him.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
We have fewer troops in Afghanistan than we had law enforcement [officers] at the Olympics in Salt Lake City.
Hillary Clinton
For ridding oneself of faith is like boiling seawater to retrieve the salt–something is gained but something is lost.
Zadie Smith
Julia looked back at Hadassah on the bloodstained sand. A great emptiness opened within her as she looked at the still form. Gone, too, was the salt that had kept her from completely corruption.
Francine Rivers
There’s folks as make bad butter and trusten to the salt t’ hide it.
George Eliot
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. I feel like my skin is at its most beautiful during those times, too – so I try not to do a lot.
Troian Bellisario
The history of the Americas is one of constant warfare over salt.
Mark Kurlansky
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
Any fighter worth his salt wants to be the best and to be the best you have to fight the best.
Chris Eubank Jr.
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
One thing I like about Argentina, they only cook with salt; that’s it.
Robert Duvall
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
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
Both my mom and my grandma were really big influences on me not only by being strong and teaching me to be strong but also owning their salt as well.
Miranda Lambert
There was a brisk northern wind, heavy and wet with the salt of the sea, and he felt, as he turned his face to it, fresh life and strength surging in his blood and bracing his limbs.
Arthur Conan Doyle
Oh salty sea, how much of your salt Is tears from Portugal?
Fernando Pessoa
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
This is kind of weird, but I eat lemons with salt as snack. They’re so good!
Becky G
Mangroves, salt marshes and sea grass lock away carbon at up to five times the rate of tropical forests.
Frances Beinecke
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
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
Salt has a greater impact on flavor than any other ingredient. Learn to use it well, and food will taste good.
Samin Nosrat
The usage of proper salt is really just a small piece of education. However, I want people to really get the proper nutrition from food for them and their family.
Wolfgang Puck
People in America are addicted to sugar and to fat and to salt.
John Mackey
Everything on our dinner table-the meat, cheese, salad, bread, and soft drink-requires carbon dioxide to be there. For those of you who believe that carbon dioxide is a pollutant, we have a special diet: water and salt!
Joanne Nova
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
And I definitely do that very British thing of, take things with a pinch of salt, stiff upper lip, you know what I mean?
Jessie J
I love nuts and popcorn with olive oil and sea salt.
Mary Helen Bowers
Once I came to Salt Lake City, I didn’t want to go anywhere else. It was home sweet home for me.
John Stockton
Risk is the salt and sugar of life.
Freya Stark
My biggest nightmare is that something doesn’t have enough salt.
Antoni Porowski
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
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
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
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
When I go gray, I’m not going to be able to see it that much. I won’t be salt and pepper: I’ll be like salt and the white pepper you can buy.
Emilie de Ravin
New Jerseyans knew that the SALT deduction cap would hurt.
Mikie Sherrill
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
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
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
When my son was little, he asked me: ‘Daddy, which is worser, sugar or salt?’ I still don’t know the answer.
Tom Frieden
Freedom requires religion like a slug requires salt
Pat Condell
Bread without love is like grass without salt — the stomach may be filled, but it leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
Leonid Andreyev
Any opinion writer worth his salt would have rejected the quaint notion that certain eternally aggrieved identity groups have exclusive linguistic rights to words in the English language.
Ilana Mercer
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. When we don’t grieve, a part of us becomes caught in the past like Lot’s wife who, because she looked back, was turned into a pillar of salt.
Rachel Naomi Remen
The shape of the meat and the taste of it starting from the top down is a part of me. All of my feelings are coming from inside of the meat down to when I put the salt onto the meat.
Salt Bae
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
The negativity will always be there. I think that’s for any actress or actor. But I think you’ve got to take it with a pinch of salt.
Amy Jackson
All Southern cooks have tried their hands at shrimp and grits, and each one has his or her own version of the dish. My mom used to season her shrimp with garlic and onion and just prepare the grits with a little salt and pepper.
Gina Neely
Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all.
Nelson Mandela
The naive was only a part of my fairy tales; humour was the real salt in them.
Hans Christian Andersen
I have eaten your bread and salt.
I have drunk your water and wine.
The deaths ye died I have watched beside
And the lives ye led were mine.
Rudyard Kipling
The good and the bad, the sugar and the salt, the kicks and the kisses—what’s come before and what will come after, you and me—
Kami Garcia
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
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.
Tallulah Bankhead
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 Pugh
the feet should have more of the acquaintance of earth, and know more of flowers, freshness, cool brooks, wild thyme, and salt sand than does anything else about us. … It is only the entirely unshod that have lively feet.
Alice Meynell
If acorns start growing into theologians, or if women begin turning into pillars of salt, then we may wish to hypothesize about a supernatural influence. But until such time as nature becomes hopelessly unintelligible and unpredictable, we need look no further than nature itself for explanations.
George H. Smith
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
Each of us from the seance stood alone. Like so many pillars of salt, we had tried to look back and failed. And in the eyes of the others who shared the pale, flat sky with us, there was sometimes suspicion, sometimes a little fear.
Joan Lowery Nixon
They may have salt, sugar, and fat on their side, but we, ultimately, have the power to make choices. After all, we decide what to buy. We decide how much to eat.
Michael Moss
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
I am grateful my own eternal companion served a mission in Hawaii before we were married in the Salt Lake Temple, and I am pleased that I have had three granddaughters serve full-time missions.
Ezra Taft Benson
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
Healthy populations of predatory crabs and fish protect the carbon in salt marshes, as they prevent herbivorous crabs and snails wiping out the plants that hold the marshes together.
George Monbiot
Ask me, it’s a sin to pervert faith with religion. Despite every church, mosque, & synagogue in it, this is not the world any God worth his salt would have created.
Ellen Hopkins
Religious people should be very active if they believe that the world belongs to God, and politics is a very important part of the world, then they must participate in political affairs because they are alive. And if they don’t act neither as the leaven or the salt or the light, then things can go horribly badly wrong.
Desmond Tutu
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 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
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
Your classic guacamole is just avocados, lime juice, and salt.
Guy Fieri
I always listen to records that I’ve been a part of with a grain of salt.
Jeff Tweedy
You end up taking your sugar with your salt and your kicks with your kisses.
Kami Garcia
If I apply a magnetic pulse on salt water – that’s your brains by the way – it’ll generate electric currents, and the electric current in the brain can erase a migraine headache.
Robert Fischell
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
I’m an angel. I kill firstborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. I even, when I feel like it, rip the souls from little girls, and from now till kingdom come, the only thing you can count on in your existence is never understanding why.
Christopher Walken
Hemingway hated me. I sold 200 million books, and he didn’t. Of course most of mine sold for 25 cents, but still… you look at all this stuff with a grain of salt.
Mickey Spillane
Contradiction is the salt which keeps truth from corruption
John Lancaster Spalding
People are conditioned to just you know, like, you know we’re like little birdies going to the bird feeder you know, or the little cows going to the salt lick. We just like what we’ve seen before.
Ethan Hawke
I believe that sugar is just as important for our body as salt is, and other natural foods.
Adnan Sami
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.
We have had significant success in the reduction of salt in food, but it has to be understood that this can only be achieved working with the industry on a voluntary basis… and it can only be done on an incremental basis.
Andrew Lansley
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
I think you just have to take everything that happens on a TV show with a grain of salt. You sign up for a show for six years having zero idea where they’re going to go with the character, so you just have to get on the ride of the show and go with wherever they take you.
Gillian Jacobs
Slow and steady wins the race, then wastes no time grinding salt-caked glass in your open wounds.
R. K. Milholland
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
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
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, 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
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
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
A little truth seasons a lie like salt.
Jacqueline Carey
If you’re in a company, you’re dancing from 9 a.m. till 7 in the evening, and then you go home and get in a hot tub and get some Epsom salts and try to get your body goin’ again. There’s no social life, no anything.
Neve Campbell
I take New Years with a grain of salt and three aspirins.
Milton Berle
In my position, I’m always going to get a bit of flak. I take it with a grain of salt.
Karen Bardsley
Of the smells, bread; of the tastes, salt.
George Herbert
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
Stay away from iodized table salt. It’s just bad and doesn’t help food taste good.
Wolfgang Puck
Patriotism is a salt against rottenness, a glorious spur to high endeavour; it recovers the half-obliterated virtue of loyalty, calls every man to service, and ennobles great and small alike.
Percy Dearmer
The Family is the salt of the earth and the light of the world, it is the leaven of society.
Pope Francis
It formed into small drops on his weather beaten features, drops that rolled down his cheeks. Strangely, some of them tasted like salt.
John Flanagan
later down the road of life, i made the discovery that salt water was also good for the mental abrasions one inevitably acquires on land.
Jimmy Buffett
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
Your playing is like salt water taffy. You see all the beautiful colors, red, yellow, blue, but they all taste the same.
Marcel Tabuteau
Any coach worth his salt will take a look at that and say, ‘I’ll take my chances with that’
Joe Dumars
I have no one at my side except God and His angels. I pray to God that He will turn my enemies into pillars of salt.
Miriam Defensor-Santiago
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
I like real people – salt-of-the-earth men.
Tanit Phoenix
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
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
There are two kinds of ham: raw and cooked. Raw ham is cured with salt and/or smoke over time; cooked ham is boiled. Every culture that makes ham has its own unique and various methods.
Kate Christensen
Families in my community have seen their taxes go up because of the SALT deduction cap and as a result are questioning whether or not they can afford to live in New Jersey. The loss of the full SALT deduction puts an undue hardship on them.
Mikie Sherrill
In time we grow older, we grow wiser, we grow smarter, and we’re better. And I feel like I’m becoming more seasoned, although I don’t have my salt-and-pepper hair.
The sea drives truth into a man like salt.
Hilaire Belloc
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
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 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
A restaurant is a compendium of choices that the owner has made. If you look around a restaurant, everything represents a choice: the kind of salt shaker that’s on the table, the art on the walls, the uniforms on the waiters.
Danny Meyer
You [Robespierre] will follow us soon. Your house will be beaten down and salt sown in the place where it stood.
Georges Danton
Salt Lake’s got a cool vibe.
Kim Shattuck
I’ve been stocking up on dry shampoo. We don’t have dry shampoo in the Philippines yet. I notice that here in the U.S., there are a lot of volumizing products, like salt spray. In the Philippines, the humidity can make your hair a bit flat, so I’m wondering, how come we don’t have this back home?
Pia Wurtzbach
By constantly keep one’s attention on the Source, the ego is dissolved in that Source like a salt-doll in the sea.
Ramana Maharshi
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
If you put a spoonful of salt in a cup of water it tastes very salty. If you put a spoonful of salt in a lake of fresh water the taste is still pure and clear. Peace comes when our hearts are open like the sky, vast as the ocean.
Jack Kornfield
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.
Art Smith
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
It is a grand thing to rise in the world. The ambition to do so is the very salt of the earth. It is the parent of all enterprise, and the cause of all improvement.
Anthony Trollope
Seriously though, most films worth their salt will have something to say about the world we live in. Even ‘Avatar’ claimed that!
Helen Baxendale
Chestnuts are my favorite ingredient to use in the fall, especially for the holidays. I always find that they are meaty, hearty and have a mysterious refinement when cooked or roasted over sea salt.
Geoffrey Zakarian
High salt intake is a risk factor for osteoporosis because excess dietary sodium promotes urinary calcium loss, leading to calcium loss from bone and therefore decreased bone density.
Joel Fuhrman
I’ve been more conscious of my salt intake, sugar intake, making sure I’m not eating as many processed foods.
Monica Denise Brown
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
Business is the salt of life.
Jeff Rich
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
Offensive linemen are like salt. Nobody ever remembers the brand they buy.
Blaine Nye
Salt is like good-humor, and nearly every thing is better for a pinch of it.
Louisa May Alcott
I never met a librarian worth his or her salt who didn’t perceive my passion for books.
Frank Delaney
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
A kiss without a mustache is like an egg without salt.
Rose Wilder Lane
I like simple food, seasoned with just salt, pepper, oil and vinegar. Complicated food and complicated lives are never good.
Sirio Maccioni
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
But after all, the villains are the salt in the soup of a story.
Cornelia Funke
The Salt Lake fans are so passionate.
Gordon Hayward
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
Fame comes and fame goes, but you have to be able to laugh about yourself and to take it with a grain of salt.
Khloe Kardashian
Peace is achieved with rice and salt, not with katanas and arrows
Uesugi Kenshin
Samsaric pleasures are like salt water, the more we indulge, the more we crave.
Sonam Rinchen
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
I have the biggest sweet tooth, and just recently a doughnut shop in Portland called Pip’s Original introduced a doughnut inspired by me called the ‘Dirty Wu.’ It is a cinnamon-sugar doughnut with sea salt, drizzled with honey and Nutella.
Reggie Lee
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
In Physic, things of melancholic hue and quality are used against melancholy, sour against sour, salt to remove salt humors.
John Milton
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
Any Democrat worth their salt that doesn’t unequivocally say Medicare-for-all is the way to go? To me, there’s something wrong with them.
Nina Turner
We must pay greater attention to keeping our bodies and minds healthy and able to heal. Yet we are making it difficult for our defences to work. We allow things to be sold that should not be called food. Many have no nutritive value and lead to obesity, salt imbalance, and allergies.
David Suzuki
Being kissed by a man who didn’t wax his moustache was-like eating an egg without salt.
Rudyard Kipling
Death is the universal salt of states; Blood is the base of all things–law and war.
Philip James Bailey
Any supervisor worth his salt would rather deal with people who attempt too much than with those who try too little.
Lee Iacocca
My music is roots music: it’s a combination of growing up on the coast and mucking around with wood and wooden tones and sounds, salt, sand, fire, dogs, and heaps of brothers.
Xavier Rudd
I’ve became a coffee drinker since I gave up boxing. I also love to eat anything cooked by a Jamaican. Carbs like rice, yellow yam, Renta yam, sweet yam. Also salt fish fried with onions.
Chris Eubank Sr.
Just as the great oceans have but one taste, the taste of salt, so too there is but one taste fundamental to all true teachings of the way, and this is the taste of freedom.
Gautama Buddha
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 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
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
We don’t “crave” animal-based meat, dairy, and eggs, but we do crave fat, salt, flavor, texture, and familiarity.
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
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.
The British people are good all through. You can test them as you would put a bucket into the sea and always find it salt.
Winston Churchill
It is like what we imagine knowledge to be: dark, salt, clear, moving, utterly free.
Elizabeth Bishop
Fish without wine is like egg without salt.
Auguste Escoffier
Every time I feel like something is missing from a dish, I think, ‘Oh, I know, I’ll add a pinch of dry ginger.’ If it’s not salt and it’s not vinegar, it’s probably missing dry ginger.
Alex Guarnaschelli
What is life worth without trials and tribulations which are the salt of life.
Mahatma Gandhi
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
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
If people say something rude or off-color, you have to take it with a grain of salt, because they don’t know you.
Chris Daughtry
The salt of any interesting civilization is mixture.
Antonio Tabucchi
The fact is: America’s obsession with meat and dairy has pretty much destroyed our sense of taste. The average burger and milkshake meal is so overloaded with fat, salt and sugar that it has numbed our taste buds to virtually anything else.
Jane Velez-Mitchell
Love can smack you like a seagull, and pour all over your feet like junkmail. You can’t be ready for such a thing any more than salt water taffy gets you ready for the ocean.
Daniel Handler
Retrospectively, I would agree with Luis Bunuel that sex without sin is like an egg without salt.
Carlos Fuentes
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
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
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
Salt is an unusual food product because it is almost universal – all human beings need salt, and most choose to eat more than is necessary.
Mark Kurlansky
I’ll cook a batch of brown rice or quinoa and keep it in the fridge, so when I get hungry, I can easily dress it up with olive oil, lemon, and salt and pepper, and then add veggies.
Marisa Miller
Pressed by the Obama administration and consumers, Kraft, Nestle, Pepsi, Campbell and General Mills, among others, have begun to trim the loads of salt, sugar and fat in many products.
Michael Moss
One should take writers’ valuations of their own work with a pinch of salt: they are likely to rank them differently tomorrow.
Howard Jacobson
Caviar used to be my drug of choice, but since my husband is on a no-salt diet, I’ve kind of given it up. I still have dreams of sitting down and gorging, though. I love it with a good vodka; I don’t like it with champagne.
Iris Apfel
What am I, Life? A thing of watery salt Held in cohesion by unresting cells, Which work they know not why, which never halt, Myself unwitting where their Master dwells?
John Masefield
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
We talk about America as a melting pot, where you can’t turn salt into pepper. Then you got too much pepper. You need the salt. You need the paprika. You need the broth.
Jonathan Majors
I try to eat healthily, but I love fried food and bad things. Give me a plate of bread, some oil and salt and I’m happy. But you can’t eat like this all the time.
Penelope Cruz
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
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
I love Twitter, but some people use profanity so much that at some point it’s like saying, ‘Pass the salt.’
Bill Cosby
Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed.
Gautama Buddha
And pray what more can a reasonable man desire, in peaceful times, in ordinary noons, than a sufficient number of ears of green sweet corn boiled, with the addition of salt?
Henry David Thoreau
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
Kosher salt, eggs and flour. These are the building blocks of everything. Kosher salt, above and beyond everything.
Graham Elliot
If I had a shoot the next day, I would definitely try to cut down on the salt because that’s really bad for bloating, and you want to look fresh.
Nina Agdal
Old friends call me Sea Salt, because my last name is Salter. Or Cocoa, cause my real first name is Courtney.
Ari Lennox
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
It’s always good to be back in Salt Lake City.
Jimmer Fredette
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 usually have about 16 pills a day of various descriptions – I also have minerals from Salt Lake City and amino acids that get sent to me from Australia.
June Brown
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
Ere yet the salt of most unrighteous tears Had left the flushing of her gallГЁd eyes, She married. O, most wicked speed, to post With such dexterity to incestuous sheets!
William Shakespeare
It’s salt. Why don’t you sprinkle some on me, honey? Aren’t I just good enough to eat?
Grant Morrison
The purpose of the salt in the steak is to do its work so quietly that it changes the nature of what it invades without calling attention to itself. Salt must get into something in order to have effect, where it indelibly stamps its own character upon what it invades.
George O. Wood
Though they live far from the coast, they retain a great fascination and passion for the ocean. The sound of crashing waves, the smell of salt air, it affects them deeply and has inspired many of their lovliest songs. There is one that tells of this love, if you want to hear it.
Christopher Paolini
You’re not worth the salt in my tears or the brain power it would take me to even conjure your face. (Aiden)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
History shows that any attempt by government to interfere in the consumption of salt is always extremely unpopular.
Mark Kurlansky
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
Soup is really easy to make: you can take basil, celery, acorn squash and boil them and then put them in the blender with sea salt. It’s delicious and only takes about 15 minutes. You can make it the night before. It’s kind of like making baby puree, and there are a ton of super easy recipes.
Anna Kaiser
My style is Edie Sedgwick meets Grace Jones, or Audrey Hepburn meets Salt ‘n’ Pepa. Strong and feisty but still classic.
Kids. You gotta love them. I adore children. A little salt, a squeeze of lemon–perfect.
Jim Butcher
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
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
A valiant man Ought not to undergo, or tempt a danger, But worthily, and by selected ways, He undertakes with reason, not by chance. His valor is the salt t’ his other virtues, They’re all unseason’d without it.
Ben Jonson
I think any actor worth their salt wants to show as much versatility as they possibly can.
Daniel Radcliffe
A dressing is not a compote A dressing is not a custard It consists of pepper and salt, Vinegar, oil and mustard.
Ogden Nash
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
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
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
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
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
A feast not profuse but elegant; more of salt [refinement] than of expense.
Lord Byron
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
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
Growing up, I thought salt belonged in a shaker at the table and nowhere else.
Samin Nosrat
We are taught not to trust our own experiences. Great Salt Lake teaches me experience is all we have.
Terry Tempest Williams
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
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
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
A marine protozoan is an aqueous salty system in an aqueous salty medium, but a man is an aqueous salty system in a medium in which there is but little water and most of that poor in salts.
John Zachary Young
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
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 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
Unfortunately, nature is very much a now-you-see-it, now-you-don’t affair. A fish flashes, then dissolves in the water before my eyes like so much salt. Deer apparently ascend bodily into heaven; the brightest oriole fades into leaves.
Annie Dillard
A Good School deserves to be call’d, the very Salt of the Town, that hath it.
Cotton Mather
I have a home in Salt Lake, and I have a home in Malibu, at the beach.
Roma Downey
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
Salt is added to dried rose petals with the perfume and spices, when we store them away in covered jars, the summers of our past.
Wallace Stegner
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
It stinks to play terrible and your team loses. It’s like salt on the wound.
Stephen Gostkowski
In Alien, Sigourney Weaver’s role was written for a man. In Salt, Angelina Jolie’s role was written for Tom Cruise. These things, when reversed, do prove to be just as exciting and entertaining with women in leading roles.
Olivia Wilde
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
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
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 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
I love the sun and salt water, which is not good for your skin and therefore not good for your image. I’m terrible about protecting my skin as well.
Julia Stiles
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.
N. T. Wright
In a building with apartments, of course, you want to make connections. Life is easier that way. There’s salt if you don’t have salt; you can knock at someone’s door, like in any city. But you know, you can hear the others, and you want to sleep, you get annoyed.
Juliette Binoche
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
Wit – the salt with which the American humorist spoils his intellectual cookery by leaving it out.
Ambrose Bierce
I daily disconnect and read a good book or listen to a good sermon or call a friend or my mom and talk on the phone with my feet up. I also take baths with bath salts that I make myself.
Kim Alexis
My favorite is Steamfresh broccoli with just a hint of garlic salt.
Jennette McCurdy
I think that going to the beach as a child, being in the water and smelling that salt air and hearing the seagulls, it had a real calming effect. But also, it was a mysterious thing – I remember wondering what was under those dark New England seas.
Brian Skerry
I prepare my style of biriyani by sauting sliced onion, tomato, green chilli, ginger garlic and add required water and rice. If I end up adding a tad too much of salt, I used to add curd to balance it.
Vijay Sethupathi
Salt and the center of the world have to be there, in that spot on the tablecloth.
Julio Cortazar
I would say the best trick I’ve pulled was putting salt instead of sugar in Phil Neville’s tea.
Nikita Parris
I had an agent in Salt Lake City, but acting was more like a hobby.
Patrick Fugit
People who are the salt of the earth get up and go to a job that they hate.
Gene Simmons
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
Field offices are evaluated in part based on their success in following through on leads and making cases that result in arrests and convictions. No case agent worth their salt would remain quiet if their cases were closed in the face of a continuing threat.
Asha Rangappa
People never know each other until they have eaten a certain amount of salt together.
A splash of red wine vinegar can pull things together like a pinch of salt.
Alex Guarnaschelli
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
Our American values are not luxuries but necessities, not the salt in our bread, but the bread itself. Our common vision of a free and just society is our greatest source of cohesion at home and strength abroad, greater than the bounty of our material blessings.
Jimmy Carter
If you’re a social scientist worth your salt, you never do a univariate analysis.
Jordan Peterson
Sugar is my friend, not my love. I always season sugar with a bit of acid or salt. Listen to your tongue.
Sherry Yard
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 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
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
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
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
I don’t pay much mind to politricks. Never met a politician who wouldn’t try to convince you that salt was sugar.
Nalo Hopkinson
And Lot’s wife, of course, was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human. So she was turned into a pillar of salt. So it goes.
Kurt Vonnegut
People under-salt their food, and they think it’s bland, but salt brings out flavor.
David Burtka
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
I guess it’s just another one of life’s little mysteries.” “I’m tired of mysteries.” “Yeah? I think they add a kind of zest to the world. Like salt in a stew.
Neil Gaiman
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 love the Mexican chapulines. These little crickets are beautifully roasted with salt and lime.
Andrew Zimmern
Fast food is inexpensive, convenient, and it tastes good. I’m all in favor of that. My problem is how heavily processed it is – how full of salt, fat, and sugar it is.
Eric Schlosser
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
Many foreigners imagine that Latin American cuisine is spicy, but Chilean food, on the whole, is extremely bland: salt, vinegar, mayonnaise, and more salt are the four basic condiments. Black pepper is conspicuously absent, and not only from the food – it is also rarely available even on request.
Jonathan Franklin
Any writer worth his salt knows that only a small proportion of literature does nore than partly compensate people for the damage they have suffered in learning to read.
Rebecca West
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
If we cry more tears we will ruin the land with salt; instead let’s praise that which would distract us with despair. Make a song for death, a song for yellow teeth and bad breath
Joy Harjo
For a long time Christianity has sewn its teachings into the fabric of Western culture. That was a good thing …. But the season of sewing is ending. Now is a time for rending, not for the sake of disengaging from culture or retreating from the public square, but so that our salt does not lose its savor.
R. R. Reno
I was elected to fight for the people of New Jersey, to win federal investment in our infrastructure, to strengthen our health care, to address gun violence, and get back our SALT deductions.
Tom Malinowski
In many parts of the world the people are searching for a solution which would link the two basic values: peace and justice. The two are like bread and salt for mankind.
Lech Walesa
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
How much salt water thrown away in waste/ To season love, that of it doth not taste.
William Shakespeare
Roasting fish that’s encased inside a salt crust is a centuries-old method of ensuring moist, ultra-flavorful flesh.
Jonathan Miles
I have had my dance with Folly, nor do I shirk the blame; I have sipped the so-called Wine of Life and paid the price of shame; But I know that I shall find surcease, the rest my spirit craves, Where the rainbows play in the flying spray, ‘Mid the keen salt kiss of the waves.
Eugene O’Neill
I do enjoy the dressing up. I like to have fun with fashion, and while the cameras can be a bit intense, I love the final result… I tend to treat the whole process with a pinch of salt!
Alesha Dixon
It isn’t true that the laws of nature have been capriciously disturbed; that snakes have talked; that women have been turned into salt; that rods have brought water out of rocks.
Arthur Conan Doyle
Didn’t have Nintendo, we just poured salt on snails.
Al Yankovic
On and on we seal the pages with salt water and promises to live well to make their deaths count.
Suzanne Collins
Fix yourself something to drink,” she said. “I don’t have any Mr. Pepper.” “You mean Dr. Pepper?” “For the love of God!” She exploded. “People expect everything from a psychic! ‘Doctor,’ ‘mister,’ I was close enough. I didn’t call it ‘Mrs. Salt,’ did I?
Elizabeth Chandler
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 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
I live in Salt Lake City, and I don’t have a lot of gay friends.
Tan France
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
Yesterday the flame of the Olympic torch was carried through our great state on its way to Salt Lake City.
Jane D. Hull
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
For a while every commercial was a dancing one. Remember when girls were dancing around salt and coffee cans?
Cyd Charisse
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
Capping our SALT deduction was a deliberate attempt to punish states that value quality public services.
Tom Malinowski
People don’t enjoy salt. They enjoy what is salted. We are the salt of the earth. We do not exist for ourselves.
John Piper
Love is the salt of life.
John Sheffield, 1st Duke of Buckingham and Normanby
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
“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
Before you make a friend, eate a bushell of salt with him.

M. C. Escher
I’ve truly grown up in Salt Lake. I’ve become a man, and I’ve become a professional.

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
