de gustibus non est disputandum -> there's no accounting for taste, there is no disputing about tastes

De gustibus non est disputandum is a Latin maxim. It means “there is no disputing about tastes”, and is essentially equivalent to the English expression "there's no accounting for taste". The implication is that opinions about matters of taste are not objectively right or wrong, and hence that disagreements about matters of taste cannot be objectively resolved.
