My mother, who was a musician and a painter, used to say:

  "Des goûts et des couleurs, on ne discute pas...
   Mais il y en a de meilleurs que d'autres!"

The sentence is soft and spicy all at once!  A bit hard to translate,

  "It's not fruitful to compare tastes and colors...
   Yet, some have it better than others!"

The fun thing is that the standard proverb stops at the ellipsis.  What
follows slightly contradicts what precedes!

And the lesson, for me, is to use some bits of courage at proposing or
evaluating aspects of things which, being more on the subjective side
than the objective side, might be prone to subtler debates.
