A Quote by George Burns on clothes, good, ideas, and niceness

Be sure to wear a good cologne, a nice aftershave lotion, and a strong underarm deodorant. And it might be a good idea to wear some clothes, too.

George Burns (1896 - 1996)

A Quote by G. F. Simmons on clothes, freedom, and style

Mathematical rigor is like clothing; in its style it ought to suit the occasion, and it diminishes comfort and retrains freedom of movement if it is either too loose or too tight.

A Quote by Elsa Schiaparelli on clothes, facts, fashion, politics, and trying

Fashion is born by small facts, trends, or even politics, never by trying to make little pleats and furbelows, by trinkets, by clothes easy to copy, or by the shortening or lengthening of a skirt.

A Quote by Dr. Albigence Waldo on body, certainty, clothes, death, despair, devil, fatigue, food, luck, reward, senses, soldiers, time, and weather

Of conditions at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, a certain Dr. Albigence Waldo wrote: Poor food hard lodging cold weather fatigue nasty clothes nasty cookery vomit half my time smoked out of my senses the devil's in it I can't endure it. A pox on my bad luck. There comes a bowl of beef soup full of burnt leaves and dirt, sickish enough to make a Hector spew away with it boys I'll live like the chameleon upon air!. . . There comes a soldier, his bare feet are seen through his worn-out shoes, his legs nearly naked from the tattered remains of an only pair of stockings, his breaches not sufficient to cover his nakedness, his shirt hanging in strings; his hair disheveled; his face meager. . . . He comes and cries with an air of wretchedness and despair, 'I am sick, my feet lame, my legs are sore, my body covered with this tormenting itch . . . and all the reward I shall get will be "Poor Will is dead!"'

Dr. Albigence Waldo

A Quote by Donna Karan on clothes, fashion, needs, sensuality, and women

Today, fashion is really about sensuality-how a woman feels on the inside. In the eighties women used suits with exaggerated shoulders and waists to make a strong impression. Women are now more comfortable with themselves and their bodies-they no longer feel the need to hide behind their clothes.
