[sav-wahr-fair; French sa-vwar-fer]
1. knowledge of just what to do in any situation; tact.
Savoir-faire is a French phrase literally meaning “knowing how to do.” It entered English in the late 1700s.
“The practice of any art demands more than ‘mere savoir-faire’. One must not only be in love with what one does, one must also know how to make love. In love self is obliterated. Only the beloved counts.”
- Henry Miller
