Examples of savor in a Sentence

  1. Kate Clinton:

    A friend told me that each morning when we get up we have to decide whether we are going to save or savor the world. I don't think that is the decision. It's not an either or, save or savor. We have to do both, save and savor the world.

  2. Frederick Buechner, Wishful Thinking, 1973:

    Of the Seven Deadly Sins, anger is possibly the most fun. To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back--in many ways it is a feast fit for a king. The chief drawback is that what you are wolfing down is yourself. The skeleton at the feast is you.

  3. Lawana Blackwell:

    Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.

  4. Luis Buñuel:

    If alcohol is queen, then tobacco is her consort. It's a fond companion for all occasions, a loyal friend through fair weather and foul. People smoke to celebrate a happy moment, or to hide a bitter regret. Whether you're alone or with friends, it's a joy for all the senses. What lovelier sight is there than that double row of white cigarettes, lined up like soldiers on parade and wrapped in silver paper? I love to touch the pack in my pocket, open it, savor the feel of the cigarette between my fingers, the paper on my lips, the taste of tobacco on my tongue. I love to watch the flame spurt up, love to watch it come closer and closer, filling me with its warmth.

  5. Susan Albers:

    I always recommend the 5 S's of mindful eating: sit down, smell, savor, slowly chew and smile, more is not better, even with food. It's all about experiencing and enjoying what you eat. That's what makes it truly satisfying.
