The dark unfathom'd caves of ocean bear:

And waste its sweetness on the desert air.”

Robert Goolrick, The End of the World as We Know It: Scenes from a Life

J.R.    Miller
“Everyone carries an atmosphere about him. It may be healthful and invigorating, or it may be unwholesome and depressing. It may make a little spot of the world a sweeter, better, safer place to live in; or it may make it harder for those to live worthily and beautifully who dwell within its circle.”
J.R. Miller

Donna Goddard
“We love with all our heart but we also keep our heart light and pliable. It has space. It breathes. It waits on life to give instructions. It sings with sweetness when the winds are soft and warm. It stands with calm patience when the storm is brewing. It lets go when endings have left their irrefutable mark. It moves. It heals. It hopes.”
Donna Goddard

Eden Finley
“If my hands grip hard enough, they could brand his body. If I kiss him gently, his heart could know I’m his. And if I love him long enough, his head could tell him to stay.

But deep down, I know he won’t.”
Eden Finley, Fandom

Tamerlan Kuzgov

“I guess you’ll have to keep visiting me then,” I said playfully.
He nuzzled his face into my neck, and I giggled quietly.
“Do you mean that?” He asked, searching my face for answers shortly after.
“If I didn’t, would I have even offered? Also, if I said no, would that really stop you?”
I smirked, and he smiled playfully.
“True, but if I knew you really meant it, I would leave you alone even if it went against all my instincts.”

Riley Sager
“There’s no such a thing as too much sweetness, Quincy”, he told me. “All the best bakers know this. There needs to be a counterpoint. Something dark. Or bitter. Or sour. Unsweetened chocolate. Cardamom and cinnamon. Lemon and lime. They cut through all the sugar, taming it just enough so that when you do taste the sweetness, you appreciate it all the more.”
Riley Sager, Final Girls

Ana Claudia Antunes
“Everybody says
She's got
a heart of stone
and a head of steel,
Yet her sweetness,
Believe it or not,
No one
could ever steal!”
Ana Claudia Antunes, Dearer Mirror

“The loss of love
smells like all the sweetness of life
slowly fades away.”
Srinivas Mishra

“Lower your sugar, if you're too sweet.”
Tamerlan Kuzgov

Donna Goddard
“We all want sweetness, beauty, harmony, exhilaration, and happiness in our lives. Don't search for it, endlessly and fruitlessly, in other people and circumstances. Become it yourself. Become it with total commitment and in full force. Your life will flower with tremendous potential.”
Donna Goddard, Touched by Love

“Amongst the obvious, yes, you are shorter than me, but not all. Ever since I first saw you, you reminded me of a bird trying to break free from a cage. Yet, how can a Little Bird break free when she doesn't have the tools or means to do so?
I knew from the start you were guarded. You could do whatever you wanted physically, and it wouldn’t affect you, but emotionally was an entirely different story. Birds are often frightened at the first approach of someone new or new experiences, even if that person was simply trying to help or aid in opening that cage door. It’s up to the bird to fly out of there and into freedom."-Hyder”

Tetsu Kariya
“I rubbed some salt into the turnip and then pickled it in wild grape juice."
"Wild grape juice!"
"The scent, the sweetness...
It surely is wild grapes!"
"Once the turnips were pickled, I sliced them...
... and put some ground Japanese walnuts on top."
"So the paste on the top is walnuts! "
"Hmm, slightly bitter, with a rich taste that's also sweet..."
"It's wonderful! "
"Its bringing tears to my eyes..."
"This flavor makes us recall the things we had long forgotten about...
That mountain where I chased after the rabbits... that river where I went fishing for carp...
It's the taste of the homeland of all the Japanese people..."
"There are three kinds of sweetness in it too! The sweetness of the wild grapes, the walnuts and the turnip..."
"The trio of flavors is wonderful...
... but I'm very impressed that you remembered that turnips taste better with fat or oil!!”
Tetsu Kariya, Vegetables

“The lemons I used were pickled in salt for over two weeks!"
"I knew it! You used preserved lemons!"
A North African condiment, salted lemons are made by pickling whole lemons in salty brine for weeks or months. Because the entire lemon, including the peel, is pickled parts of it can be used to emphasize just about any flavor...
... be it tartness, saltiness, bitterness, freshness or mellowness!

"I added the zest and pickling brine in my sponge cake, pralines and even the sauce! Its mild tartness should make the sweetness of the semifreddo stand out even more!”
Yūto Tsukuda, 食戟のソーマ 10 [Shokugeki no Souma 10]

The cream sauce has a rich, full-bodied bitterness to it that makes the tongue tingle...
Its spicy freshness lightens up the thick, heavy flavor of the roast beef to exactly the right degree! The wallop the meat's juice packs is no joke, but I feel I could keep eating this forever!
Sure, he shoved a mountain of artichokes into this dish...
... but how did he manage to make their uniquely fresh, vibrant and astringent flavor stand out this much?!

"This, too, is the result of Mr. Eizan's highly skilled use of cynarine. Any unnecessary source of sweetness has been removed, which makes the taste of the cream sauce stand out even more starkly."
"Whoa, Whoa! Slow down. I'm totally lost here!"
"I get that cynarine's supposed to make stuff taste sweet, but how does that even work?"

"Is it so bitter that anything tasted afterwards seems sweet by comparison?"
"No, it isn't anything as simple as that. Cynarine directly affects the taste buds."
Yep! When you eat food that contains cynarine, the compound spreads across your tongue as you chew, covering up and thereby blocking the taste buds for sweetness.
That's what's happening with Yukihira and the judges right now. Their tongues can't taste sweet, so bitter flavors really stand out. As they eat other food, the act of chewing gradually wipes the cynarine off the tongue. Slowly, their taste buds resume their normal functions. But here's where the important bit happens...
Since the tongue has been blocked from tasting sweet flavors for a time...
... even a tiny bit of sweetness will now stick out like a sore thumb!

"When there's a ton of cynarine smeared on the tongue, even a cup of water will taste supersweet.”
Yūto Tsukuda, 食戟のソーマ 27 [Shokugeki no Souma 27]

“Sweetness in marriage is what you make while bitterness is what is created”

Will Advise
“May every morning for us carefree be,
may every morning make us feel free,
our dreams with us to be for life,
like fleets of ships, in skies to sail, running rife…

Our smiles to bring to others joy,
hearts with sweetness filling every ploy,
our life - lifelike, like on ancient tapes,
to live in the moment, from youth to not escape…”
Will Advise, На чист Български...: Pristine Bulgarian sayings...
