Fashion quotes
Fashion
The fashion wears out more apparel than the man.

- William Shakespeare
SYMBOLIC, adj. Pertaining to symbols and the use and interpretation of symbols. They say'tis conscience feels compunction; I hold that that's the stomach's function, For of the sinner I have noted That when he's sinned he's somewhat bloated, Or ill some other ghastly fashion Within that bowel of compassion. True, I believe the only sinner Is he that eats a shabby dinner. You know how Adam with good reason, For eating apples out of season, Was "cursed." But that is all symbolic: The truth is, Adam had the colic. G.J.

- Ambrose Bierce
Fashion is general. Style is individual.

- Edna Woolman Chase
Humor is a drug which it's the fashion to abuse.

- W.S. Gilbert
Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but religiously follows the new.

- Thoreau, Henry David
True love is night jasmine, a diamond in darkenss, the heartbeat no cardiologist has ever heard. It is the most common of miracles, fashioned of fleecy clouds, a handful of stars tossed into the night sky.

- Jim Bishop
Fashions fade, but style is eternal.

- Saint-Laurent, Yves
In an age when the fashion is to be in love with yourself, confessing to be in love with somebody else is an admission of unfaithfulness to one's beloved.

- Russell Baker
A fashion is nothing but an induced epidemic.

- George Bernard Shaw
Fashion is more powerful than any tyrant.

- Proverb, Latin
There is a level of cowardice lower than that of the conformist: the fashionable non-conformist.

- Ayn Rand
What were once vices are the fashion of the day.

- Seneca
You couldn't tell if she was dressed for an opera or an operation.

- Cobb, Irvin S.
It is [the] belief in absolutes, I would hazard, that is the great enemy today of the life of the mind. This may seem a rash proposition. The fashion of the time is to denounce relativism as the root of all evil. But history suggests that the damage done to humanity by the relativist is far less than the damage done by the absolutist - by the fellow who, as Mr. Dooley once put it, "does what he thinks th'Lord wud do if He only knew th'facts in th'case."

- Arthur Schlesinger Jr.
The hell to be endured hereafter, of which theology tells, is no worse than the hell we make for ourselves in this world by habitually fashioned our characters in the wrong way.

- James, William
My weakness is wearing too much leopard print.

- Collins, Jackie
You know, one had as good be out of the world, as out of the fashion.

- Cibber, Colley
Fashion can be bought. Style one must possess.

- Edna Woolman Chase
LEXICOGRAPHER, n. A pestilent fellow who, under the pretense of recording some particular stage in the development of a language, does what he can to arrest its growth, stiffen its flexibility and mechanize its methods. For your lexicographer, having written his dictionary, comes to be considered "as one having authority," whereas his function is only to make a record, not to give a law. The natural servility of the human understanding having invested him with judicial power, surrenders its right of reason and submits itself to a chronicle as if it were a statue. Let the dictionary (for example) mark a good word as "obsolete" or "obsolescent" and few men thereafter venture to use it, whatever their need of it and however desirable its restoration to favor -- whereby the process of improverishment is accelerated and speech decays. On the contrary, recognizing the truth that language must grow by innovation if it grow at all, makes new words and uses the old in an unfamiliar sense, has no following and is tartly reminded that "it isn't in the dictionary" -- although down to the time of the first lexicographer (Heaven forgive him!) no author ever had used a word that _was_ in the dictionary. In the golden prime and high noon of English speech; when from the lips of the great Elizabethans fell words that made their own meaning and carried it in their very sound; when a Shakespeare and a Bacon were possible, and the language now rapidly perishing at one end and slowly renewed at the other was in vigorous growth and hardy preservation -- sweeter than honey and stronger than a lion -- the lexicographer was a person unknown, the dictionary a creation which his Creator had not created him to create. God said: "Let Spirit perish into Form," And lexicographers arose, a swarm! Thought fled and left her clothing, which they took, And catalogued each garment in a book. Now, from her leafy covert when she cries: "Give me my clothes and I'll return," they rise And scan the list, and say without compassion: "Excuse us -- they are mostly out of fashion." Sigismund Smith

- Ambrose Bierce
Time is like a fashionable host That slightly shakes his parting guest by the hand, And with his arm outstretch'd, as he would fly, Grasps in the comer.

- William Shakespeare
