A Quote by William Shakespeare on clothes, gold, justice, and vices

Through tattered clothes small vices do appear; Robes and furred gowns hide all. Plate sin with gold, And the strong lance of justice breaks; Arm it in rags, a pigmy's straw does pierce it.

A Quote by William Carlos Williams on books and clothes

No wreaths please - especially no hothouse flowers. Some common memento is better, something he prized and is known by: his old clothes - a few books perhaps.

A Quote by William Butler Yeats on body, clothes, soul, and women

I gave what other women gave That stepped out of their clothes But when this soul, its body off Naked to naked goes, He it has found shall find therein What none other knows.

A Quote by William Blake on clothes, divinity, joy, lies, soul, truth, and world

A truth that's told with bad intent Beats all the lies you can invent. It is right it should be so; Man was made for Joy and Woe; And when this we rightly know, Thro' the World we safely go, Joy and woe are woven fine, A clothing for the soul divine.

William Blake (1757 - 1827)

A Quote by unknown on clothes, mountains, and stillness

Swiftly the years, beyond recall, Solemn the stillness of this fair morning, I will clothe myself in spring-clothing, And visit the slopes of the Eastern Hill, By the mountain-stream a mist hovers, Hovers a moment, then scatters, There comes a wind blowing from the south That brushes the fields of new corn.

A Quote by unknown on automobiles, bankers, children, clothes, kindness, life, money, and world

One hundred years from now It will not matter What kind of car I drove, What kind of house I lived in, How much money I had in my bank account, Nor what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better Because I was important in the life of a child.

A Quote by unknown on cinema, clothes, ideas, imagination, justice, people, and songs

We ran out of new ideas somewhere around 1978, since then we've been repeating ourselves. Same songs, same movies, same clothes, even the same crimes. Like this Robie guy, no imagination. He's just part of the rhythm and the rhyme of all this repeating. This is 1996, here comes the millennium. But people are nervous, they're on edge, they're jumpy. This is supposed to be something new. But we can't look that in the face, can we? So what do we do? We grab a little something from one year in the fifties and a little of something else from some other year, maybe late sixties. We think we're creating something new and different, but really, all we're doing is just repeating the same old . . . nothing. We're all copycats.
