Fashion quotes
Fashion
The man or woman who concentrated on Things can hardly be trusted to use those things for the essential good of mankind. Only those who have guided the development of their spirit as well as their mind are really; qualified to use wisely the things that man's reason has enabled him to fashion out of nature's raw materials.

- Fields, E. S.
It is difficult, if not impossible, for most people to think otherwise than in the fashion of their own period.

- Shaw, George Bernard
Fashion is for people who don't know who they are.

- Quentin Crisp
Cruelty is one fashion statement we can all do without.

- Rue McClanahan
High fashion has the shelf life of potato salad.

- Barbara Kingsolver
The beggar wears all colors fearing none.

- Lamb, Charles
Women thrive on novelty and are easy meat for the commerce of fashion. Men prefer old pipes and torn jackets.

- Anthony Burgess
Grief that is dazed and speechless is out of fashion: the modern woman mourns her husband loudly and tells you the whole story of his death, which distresses her so much that she forgets not the slightest detail about it.

- Bruyere, Jean De La
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
To live content with small means, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich, to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never, in a word to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common, this is to be my symphony.

- William Henry Channing
The average American can get into the kingdom of heaven much more easily than he can get into the Boulevard St. Germain.

- W. Somerset Maugham
FAIRY, n. A creature, variously fashioned and endowed, that formerly inhabited the meadows and forests. It was nocturnal in its habits, and somewhat addicted to dancing and the theft of children. The fairies are now believed by naturalist to be extinct, though a clergyman of the Church of England saw three near Colchester as lately as 1855, while passing through a park after dining with the lord of the manor. The sight greatly staggered him, and he was so affected that his account of it was incoherent. In the year 1807 a troop of fairies visited a wood near Aix and carried off the daughter of a peasant, who had been seen to enter it with a bundle of clothing. The son of a wealthy _bourgeois_ disappeared about the same time, but afterward returned. He had seen the abduction been in pursuit of the fairies. Justinian Gaux, a writer of the fourteenth century, avers that so great is the fairies'power of transformation that he saw one change itself into two opposing armies and fight a battle with great slaughter, and that the next day, after it had resumed its original shape and gone away, there were seven hundred bodies of the slain which the villagers had to bury. He does not say if any of the wounded recovered. In the time of Henry III, of England, a law was made which prescribed the death penalty for "Kyllynge, wowndynge, or mamynge" a fairy, and it was universally respected.

- Ambrose Bierce
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
If one considers how much reason every person has for anxiety and timid self-concealment, and how three-quarters of his energy and goodwill can be paralyzed and made unfruitful by it, one has to be very grateful to fashion, insofar as it sets that three-quarters free and communicates self-confidence and mutual cheerful agreeableness to those who know they are subject to its law.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
What a deformed thief this fashion is.

- William Shakespeare
Your rat tail is all the fashion now. I prefer a bushy plume, carried straight up. You are Siamese and your ancestors lived in trees. Mine lived in palaces. It has been suggested to me that I am a bit of a snob. How true! I prefer to be.

- Chandler, Raymond
People in America, of course, live in all sorts of fashions, because they are foreigners, or unlucky, or depraved, or without ambition; people live like that, but Americans live in white detached houses with green shutters. Rigidly, blindly, the dream takes precedence.

- Mead, Margaret
From such crooked wood as that which man is made of, nothing straight can be fashioned.

- Kant, Immanuel
The story I am writing exists, written in absolutely perfect fashion, some place in the air. All must do is find it, and copy it.

- Jules Reynard
Thou art not for the fashion of these times, where none will sweat but for promotion.

- William Shakespeare
