ANTHONY Bourdain was a beloved and well-respected celebrity chef, author, and television personality before his tragic death on June 8, 2018.
The chef was noted for being curious about international cuisine and interested in the human condition, so it’s not hard to understand why he’d have some pretty interesting quotes about life, travel, food, and so much more.

What are some of Anthony Bourdain’s best quotes?
Bourdain sadly died by suicide in his hotel room in Strasbourg, France while filming an episode of his show Parts Unknown.
Before his death, however, Bourdain said or wrote a number of memorable quotes that fans still remember today.
“I always entertain the notion that I’m wrong, or that I’ll have to revise my opinion,” he is quoted as saying. “Most of the time that feels good; sometimes it really hurts and is embarrassing.”
This is likely a sentiment a lot of people can relate to.

Anthony Bourdain on life and travel
In a longer quote about travel and life, Bourdain wrote in The Nasty Bits, a book published in 2006, “Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small.”
“And in return, life – and travel – leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks – on your body or on your heart – are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.”
In a quote that is now a bit haunting after his untimely passing, Bourdain wrote in No Reservations: Around the World on an Empty Stomach, “Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart.”
“But that’s okay,” he continued. “The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”

Bourdain quotes about love
As far as love goes, the late chef is attributed as having said, “You learn a lot about someone when you share a meal together.”
He also is quoted as saying, “What nicer thing can you do for somebody than make them breakfast?” which — while not strictly about love — seems romantic in its own regard.
