I’ve spent a lot on clothes. I’m not kidding when I say I could have bought several country homes with the money. I’ve also given a lot away over time. I had a lovely Yves Saint Laurent jacket that I’d only worn once or twice, but I’m one for spring cleaning rather than storing my clothes.

Jorge Luis Borges

Michael Korda
Fashion is a vampiric thing, it’s the hoover on your brain. That’s why I wear the hats, to keep everyone away from me. They say, ‘Oh, can I kiss you?’ I say, ‘No, thank you very much.

The haggard aspect of the little old man was wonderfully suited to the place; he might have groped among old churches and tombs and deserted houses and gathered all the spoils with his own hands.

I have a massive hat collection, which includes many, many fedoras I haven’t worn because of the stigma. I buy them thinking, ‘I’m going to make people accept fedoras!’ But with the way I dress, if I wore a fedora, I’d be in the camp that gives them a bad name.
Brendon Urie
Now shall I become a common tale, A ruin’d fragment of a worn-out world; Unchanging record of unceasing change. Eternal landmark to the tide of time. Swift generations, that forget each other, Shall still keep up the memory of my shame Till I am grown an unbelieved fable.
Hartley Coleridge
I’ll be having lunch with my mum and she’ll complain about the paparazzi outside. I tell her that she could have worn a beanie, but of course she never does. She loves it – it’s how she chooses to connect with people. That’s fine, I can respect that. But I’m the opposite. I always have been.
Aimee Osbourne
Eight years ago, you may remember Hillary and I were rivals for the Democratic nomination. We battled for a year and a half. Let me tell you, it was tough, because Hillary was tough. I was worn out. She was doing everything I was doing, but just like Ginger Rogers, it was backwards in heels.
Barack Obama
These are things I love, things I’ve worn. I get more compliments on accessories than anything else. I think they’re kind of like herbs and spices. They give zest and zing to an outfit.
Iris Apfel
I’ve always loved glasses. Always have. I’ve worn glasses since I was in the fifth grade.
Danny Gokey
I want to get away from couture just being done for a picture or for a single moment on the red carpet. I want to try and convince women that couture can be worn in the day and that there’s a reality and relevance there, because that’s what Mr. Christian Dior wanted.
Raf Simons
I don’t want to look old and worn, but what can you do? My real focus is being an actor. I care more about having the opportunity to play roles that I haven’t played than I care if my neck looks like someone’s bedroom curtains.
Sally Field
My ancient history teacher, Millie Lloyd, should have worn a medal for her performance at the battle of Thermopylae. She was excited and we were excited.
Kurt Vonnegut
I was tired of my lady, we’d been together too long, like a worn-out recording of a favorite song.
Rupert Holmes
It is by no means a fact that death is the worst of all evils; when it comes it is an alleviation to mortals who are worn out with sufferings.
Pietro Metastasio
I’ve been involved with Berlei for almost my whole career. I actually discovered them well over 10 years ago, probably 2002 at least. My mom introduced me. She said, “Listen, you should try these bras.” And I was like, “Really?” So I tried it and since then I’ve never worn another bra.
Serena Williams
I know you feel worn and tired. I know you’re tired of failing. Rest, but don’t stop. You can do this. You got this.
Not because you’re strong, but because He’s your strength.
Yasmin Mogahed
Marvel has a very specific MCU in-house style with the costumes, and so I thought, ‘Oh, it could be so fun to put this original Loki in an outfit that maybe Loki would have worn in a movie like 40 years ago.’
Kate Herron
People, when they say ‘streetwear,’ they miss the central component, which is that it’s real people; it’s clothes that are worn on the street.
Virgil Abloh
A fan sent me a pair of fluffy winter socks, and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s cool. I’ll wear them to bed. It’s cold; it’s winter.’ But they were worn. They were black underneath, and they stunk, and I hate feet. She was like, ‘I’m giving you my favorite pair.’
Ella Henderson
I have this old worn-out, skintight T-shirt that I love. That’s sexy.
Liz Vassey
The glory of being a carrier pilot has certainly worn off.
George H. W. Bush
I shop once in six months. My friends often point at my shoes to tell me that they’ve worn out. It’s embarrassing, but it doesn’t affect me too much. I shop when I have to.
Mithila Palkar
I’ve had to replace parts in the basses when they’ve gotten old or worn out, so everything isn’t absolutely original.
Chris Squire
I’ve worn over 6,700 gowns. They’re all borrowed gowns, designer samples.
Vanna White
I’ve always worn a hat when I work. I think it also comes from a picture of Rothko I saw with a painter’s hat on.
Brice Marden
I’m just worn down and weary of bands whose lyrics are cryptic and self-referential.
Yannis Philippakis
You can’t recall someone whose name has worn away.
Sebastian Faulks
Pa did not like a country so old and worn out that the hunting was poor. He wanted to go west. For two years he had wanted to go west and take a homestead, but Ma did not want to leave the settled country.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
There are many ways that we grow, but there are two major ways: We shed what no longer works, or we’re broken open. If we’re unwilling to shed, then we will be broken open. Through shedding, we are worn down, just as nature is eroded to its beauty. I think that through suffering, human beings are eroded to our beauty.
Mark Nepo
…his gaze met hers. It was crazy. Dressed down in worn blue jeans and a black shirt, he was the most beautiful man she’d ever seen. And the moment was sort of perfect. Even with the deer head staring over his shoulder like a total creeper.
J. Lynn
Of course I remember everything I’ve ever worn.
Mary Quant
I liked masculine fabrics: Prince of Wales checks, city pinstripes, and flannels – worn with black tights, flattish shoes.
Mary Quant
By constant dripping, water hollows stone,
A signet-ring from use alone grows thin,
And the curved plowshare by soft earth is worn.
I like the Alice in Wonderland sculpture in Central Park. I love how it’s been rained on forever and looks worn down by time.
Conor Oberst
Randalf the Wise indeed!I’ve worn wiser pairs of underpants!
Paul Stewart
I loved their home. Everything smelled older, worn but safe; the food aroma had baked itself into the furniture.
Susan Strasberg
My shoes I got to pick. I chose worn-out red flats. I figured I should make it clear from the start that I wasn’t princess material.
Kiera Cass
The world’s decay where the wind’s hands have passed, And my head, worn out with love, at rest In my hands, and my hands full of dust.
Ted Hughes
Believe that you can run farther or faster. Believe that you’re young enough, old enough, strong enough, and so on to accomplish everything you want to do. Don’t let worn-out beliefs stop you from moving beyond yourself.
John Bingham
I’ve worn black today, because I’ve heard so often that it’s supposed to be slimming. But instead I am this sphere of darkness submarining through the halls.
David Levithan
Don’t you think I was made for you? I feel like you had me ordered – and I was delivered to you – to be worn. I want you to wear me, like a watch-charm or a buttonhole bouquet.
Zelda Fitzgerald
Many people will say, well, clothes should be worn; but I think people can look at them in public, like seeing a film. I think museum exhibitions are very important
Issey Miyake
Most of my wardrobe is vintage, and I’ve worn dresses to the Oscars that I got for $10.
Winona Ryder
My record, Evolution, is really about me evolving as an artist and trying a few new things. There’s a song called, Road Worn, which is about spending so much time on the road and is a lot more jazzy sounding than most of my other music.
Eliot Lewis
There is a rhythm to the ending of a marriage just like the rhythm of a courtship-only backward. You try to start again but get into blaming over and over. Finally you are both worn out, exhausted, hopeless. Then lawyers are called in to pick clean the corpses. The death has occurred much earlier.
Erica Jong
Messages about money are passed down from generation to generation, worn and chipped like the family dishes.
Suze Orman
Don’t answer to sick, or broke, or worn out any longer.
Kenneth Copeland
I love black leggings with cowboy (I mean cowgirl!) boots, and other-slightly less trendy-things like my boys’ Wrangler jeans and my husband’s worn deerskin work gloves. I love most things country, because country, to me, is home.
Ree Drummond
I don’t like perfumes that are too strong or sweet. I like a fragrance that is earthy and sensual and can be worn at any time.
Angelina Jolie
The bones and flesh and legal statistics are the garments worn by the personality, not the other way around.
Robert M. Pirsig
Third box car, midnight train, destination Bangor, Maine. Old worn out suit and shoes, I don’t pay no union dues.
Roger Miller
I sometimes get worn out by the training and going into the gym, but never by the fights.
Julio Cesar Chavez Sr.
Even sound seemed to fail in this air, like the air was worn out with carrying sounds so long.
William Faulkner
It brings me no joy and not enough comfort to dwell too much on things I’ve said or written or made or worn in the past.
Tavi Gevinson
There are a couple of things that I’m sure people don’t think are important, but I do. I don’t like hair changes unless there’s a reason for it. Clothing – I don’t like to see an outfit worn more than one time in an hour – you can wear it again a few weeks later.
Aaron Spelling
It was exactly what was released two months later with the exception of a couple of reaction shots which we went back in to get. I liked the movie very much and asked him what the studio’s problem was. I felt that he was at a point where they might have worn him down.
Madeleine Stowe
I wear and have worn scarves my entire life while traveling, working out, and now sometimes while performing, and not just on my head – I wear them around my neck and on my bag.
Diamonds have an image of purity and light. They are given as a pledge of love and worn as a symbol of commitment.
Peter Singer
For anyone worn down, The Impossible Will Take a Little While is a bracing double cappuccino.
Barbara Ehrenreich
One vice worn out makes us wiser than fifty tutors.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
I’ve worn it to church before. Camouflage and the other clothes.
Si Robertson
A good aphorism is too hard for the tooth of time, and is not worn away by all the centuries, although it serves as food for every epoch.
Friedrich Nietzsche
I guess you heard about this; the U.S. Olympic Committee is coming under fire after it was revealed that the uniforms for Team USA to be worn in the opening ceremony were made in China. Turns out they were made by some of the same kids who could beat us in gymnastics. That’s the worst part.
Jay Leno
I got tired, I told him. Not worn out, but worn through. Like one of those wives who wakes up one morning and says I can’t bake any more bread.
Jonathan Safran Foer
I think bare legs in winter are idiotic. Unless your naked pins are toned, tanned and veinless, it’s best to cover up. There is nothing more elegant in winter than dark tights worn with matching knee-length boots and a belted trench coat.
Joan Collins
he looked around at the books on the walls, at their dark, worn spines, and he seemed to hear a strange, distant murmur coming from them. each of the closed books was a door, and behind it stirred shadows, voices, sounds, heading toward him from a deep, dark place.
Arturo PГ©rez-Reverte
I’ve worn stilettos since I was 12, so I have abused my feet to the point of no return.
Cobie Smulders
I really like a lot of Tom Ford. His leather sneakers are my most worn shoes.
P. J. Tucker
I love living my life in flip-flops. I met a guy in the islands a while ago who told me he hadn’t worn a pair of shoes in three years! I thought, ‘Man, that’s the life!’
Kenny Chesney
I have always worn the No.10 shirt when I played at lower levels and, obviously, my reference point was always Pele and then Ronaldinho.
Veterans Day is a time to celebrate the men and women who have worn this nation’s uniform and to honor their service.
Tammy Duckworth
Performers are the neediest people in the world. Unless you’ve been in that goldfish bowl – nobody can judge unless they’ve worn those shoes.
Olivia Hussey
The greatest part of mankind … are given up to labor, and enslaved to the necessity of their mean condition; whose lives are worn out only in the provisions for living.
John Locke
No real lady would let a dress that might have been worn by a stranger touch her skin.
Cassandra Clare
I haven’t worn one for a long time, but I look pretty good in a suit.
Taj Mahal
I know how I like my house. I like it cute and cozy and a little funky, and I like it to feel lived in and worn, and I like the things inside of it to work. That’s all. And for me, it’s fine that my house’s interior suggests that I might not spend every waking moment thinking about how it looks.
Glennon Doyle Melton
The chin a little higher, dear. Style largely depends on the way the chin is worn. They are worn very high, just at present.
Oscar Wilde
The only thing I’ve got is that the ring fingers on both my hands have a little arthritis in each. It’s a worn out joint because of too much exertion and stress. But it doesn’t affect my playing, which is good.
Roger Taylor
There was a time that I would have carried a briefcase and worn a monocle were it to even border on socially acceptable.
Maya Hawke
I’m not wearing leather shoes, and I have not worn furs since a long time ago. I have to be very conscious when I’m making decisions and saying I’m vegan because I have to be about it all the way.
I now let go of worn out things, worn out conditions, and worn out relationships. Divine order is now established and maintained in me and in my world.
Catherine Ponder
ARMOR, n. The kind of clothing worn by a man whose tailor is a blacksmith.
Ambrose Bierce
You feel worn down at the end of every year, regardless of whether you have power numbers or not.
Buster Posey
I’ve worn dresses from all different price ranges, and the thing that couture dresses have in common is that the fit is amazing.
Beyonce Knowles
Youth is beautiful; its friendship is precious; the intercourse with it is a purifying release from the worn and stained harness of older life.
Nathaniel Parker Willis
His face was very heavily creased, and into each crease he had tucked some worry or other, so that it wasn’t really his face any longer, but more like a tree that had nests of birds in all of the branches. He had to struggle constantly to manage it and always looked worn out from the effort.
Arthur Golden
Standing as a witness in all things means all things – big things, little things, in all conversations, in jokes, in games played and books read and music listened to, in causes supported, in service rendered, in clothes worn, in friends made.
Margaret D. Nadauld
I started my second company in 1999. BodyMedia was set up to take advantage of the future of wearables – sensors and computing worn on our bodies in any and all ways that could make our lives better.
Astro Teller
I have a collection of vintage sundresses, and I’ve never worn them because for some reason I always opt for shorts and a t-shirt. I wish I could commit to them. I will. I have a few really great pieces I’ve been holding onto for years.
Tatiana Maslany
The #18 jersey will never be worn again
Jim Irsay
Always be available to your kids. Because if you say, ‘Give me five minutes, give me ten minutes,’ it’ll be 15, it’ll be 20. And then when you get there, the shine will have worn off whatever it is they wanted to share with you.
Michael J. Fox
I’d worn Joe’s Jeans since I was young, so it was cool to be able to reinvent the brand and be able to be part of it.
Bella Hadid
If the shoe fits, it is probably worn out.
Craig Reucassel
I have never worn a sleeveless blouse ever in films or in my personal life, so there was no way that I would wear a bikini.
Waheeda Rehman
Sorry, honey, but I haven’t worn a nightgown in years.
Gregory Peck
I’ve worn jeans until they’re ripped all the way around the crotch and I can’t wear them any longer. You get so attached to jeans, they’re like old friends.
Lily Donaldson
Therefore bivouac we On this great, blond highway, unimpeded by Veiled scruples, worn conundrums. Morning is Impermanent. Grab sex things, swing up Over the horizon like a boy On a fishing expedition.
John Ashbery
I have a gorgeous coat that I found at a vintage fair – it’s just so elegant. Unfortunately, it has a massive hole underneath the arm, as I think I may have worn it to death!
Jessica Raine
When the old creeds are threadbare, and worn through, And all too narrow for the broadening soul, Give me the fine, firm texture of the new, Fair, beautiful and whole!
Henry Ward Beecher
‘Sunset Boulevard’ – the story of Hollywood movies draped on a depressing sex affair – is an uncompromising study of American decadence displaying a sad, worn, methodical beauty few films have had since the late twenties.
Manny Farber
I try to think about items that can be worn in different ways so they can be worn more than once.
Joseph Altuzarra
My worries travel around in my head on their well worn path
Mary Ann Shaffer
I have worn things that are too tight, and I’ve learned over the years that just because the size on the tag says something smaller doesn’t mean it looks good on you.
Danielle Fishel
For a moment man is a boy, for a moment a lovesick youth, for a moment bereft of wealth, for a moment in the height of prosperity; then at life’s end with limbs worn out by old age and wrinkles adorning his face, like an actor he retires behind the curtain of death.
Our bells are worn threadbare with ringing for victories
Horace Walpole
Good sense travels on the well-worn paths; genius, never. And that is why the crowd, not altogether without reason, is so ready to treat great men as lunatics.
Cesare Lombroso
If Freud had worn a kilt in the prescribed Highland manner he might have had a very different attitude to genitals.
Woodrow Wilson
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
Denis Waitley
The first suit I enjoyed was a Dior suit that I got given. I’ve never worn anything that fitted that closely – it was akin to ‘Oh my God, I had no idea that a suit didn’t have to be this wide.’ But I do intend to get one made some day.
Jamie Cullum
The Kobe 8 is about enhanced performance. It’s the most comfortable shoe I have worn. It’s simplistic but has an edge to it.
Kobe Bryant
Nature, they say, doth dote, And cannot make a man Save on some worn-out plan, Repeating us by rote.
James Russell Lowell
As great as it is, ‘Vogue’ won’t change a designer’s business. But if an unknown brand is worn by a certain person in a tabloid, it will be the biggest designer within a week.
Rachel Zoe
A review of summit day photographs will show that I was clothed in the latest, highest quality, high altitude gear, comparable, if not better, than that worn by the other members of our expedition.
Anatoli Boukreev
My guitar, it was new when I got it, but it has a hole like Willie’s where it’s just worn out from my pinky going back and forth over the wood over all these years. I got Willie Nelson to sign that spot on my guitar. I’m a huge fan of him.
Dierks Bentley
Threadbare his songs seem now, to lettered ken: They were worn threadbare next the hearts of men.
William Watson
Siblings tend not to care much about boundaries and borders. Having worn each others’ T-shirts, it’s unlikely that they’d go to war over a border.
Robert Bly
If faith itself has different dresses worn, What wonder modes in wit should take their turn?
Alexander Pope
It is almost better to be an impulse shirt-buyer than an impulse shoe-buyer. I have worn shirts that made people think I was a retired Mafia hit-man or a Yugoslavian sports convener from Split, but I have worn shoes that made people think I was insane.
Clive James
I can’t bring out something I’ve already worn. I want to make sure I don’t look down. I want people to say, ‘Man, he looks good’.
Craig Sager
Whenever someone comes up to me and says, ‘I’m having trouble shopping.’ I tell them to pull out their 10 favorite, most-worn pieces, then build a wardrobe around them. Those staples are going to be different for everybody.
Lauren Conrad
Often something more simple would be better. Sometimes I put things together – a shirt, a sweater, a jacket – and it’s too complicated. I would have worn only a v-neck sweater, it would have been better. It’s not the clothes but it’s how you wear them sometimes.
Ines de La Fressange
The worst decision, hands down, was wearing bright yellow when I was 9 months pregnant. I looked like a bumble bee. I have not worn yellow since.
Safra A. Catz
And I thought about the color and I realized what blue it was. It was the soft and changeable, essential blue of a well-worn pair of pants. Pants = Love
Ann Brashares
The body is a slave, the soul a sovereign, and therefore it is due to Divine mercy when the body is worn out by illness: for thereby the passions are weakened, and a man comes to himself; indeed, bodily illness itself is sometimes caused by the passions.
Seraphim of Sarov
God is not worn out running the galaxy. He’s not taxed at all guiding every dust particle all the time.
John Piper
All clothes are worn on the street, but ‘streetwear’ had once described T-shirt brands and skate-inspired brands, and now it’s just a lazy innuendo used to describe clothing made by designers that the establishment deems ‘less than.’
Kerby Jean-Raymond
My overcoat is worn out; my shirts also are worn out. And I ask to be allowed to have a lamp in the evening; it is indeed wearisome sitting alone in the dark.
William Tyndale
Sometimes you have to be worn out and burnt out to become authentic and original.
Michael Eisner
Back in the NBA’s pre-mask era, ballers with busted noses or orbital bones had two unappealing options: Sit out and heal, or strap on a Michael Myers-looking opaque face shield closely related to that worn by hockey goalies.
Brendan I. Koerner
There are clothes which keep rejuvenating themselves instead of getting worn out.
Roberto Juarroz
Surely it is one of the simplest laws of taste in dress, that it shall not attract undue attention from the wearer to the worn.
Elizabeth Stuart Phelps
There was a Saint Laurent dress that I actually had to hide from my manager. I DJ’d for part of the money, did a shoot and got a discount, and it was still one of my most extravagant purchases. I’ve worn it loads, even to do chores around the house, so surely that makes it ok?
Daisy Lowe
The sap of Spring in the young wood a-stir Will celebrate with green the Mother, And every song-bird shout awhile for her; But we are gifted, even in November Rawest of seasons, with so huge a sense Of Her nakedly worn magnificence We forget cruelty and past betrayal, Heedless of where the next bright bolt may fall.
Robert Graves
We shared a doctor in Harley Street, and it turned out Axl Rose was a huge fan of mine, which was cool because Im a bit of a rocker – I should have worn spandex and grown my hair long but instead I joined a pop band.
Tony Hadley
I met this homeless man who had never owned a shirt in his life. He had taken his pants and worn them as a shirt and I thought it was so creative. He was liberated from the conventions of fashion.
Julia Stiles
It is reasonable to think that the more readers put into the Bible app in the form of small investments, the more it becomes a repository of their history of worship. Like a worn dog-eared book, full of scribbled insights and wisdom, the app becomes a treasured asset not easily discarded.
Nir Eyal
Ballet is quite unnatural on the joints. My body is just worn. My joints are 10 years older than me.
Darcey Bussell
I had a replica of a red outfit that Karisma Kapoor wore in some movie. I have worn that outfit on many occasions.
Bhumi Pednekar
The true poetry of life: the poetry of the commonplace, of the ordinary man, of the plain, toil-worn woman, with their loves and their joys, their sorrows and their griefs.
William Osler
When I started on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ I had the choice of wearing contact lenses, which I had never worn before, or glasses, in order to be able to read the cue cards.
Tina Fey
Many a green isle needs must be In the deep wide sea of Misery, Or the mariner, worn and wan, Never thus could voyage on.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Saying yes all the time won’t make me Wonder Woman. It will make me a worn out woman.
Lysa TerKeurst
Between saying and doing, many a pair of shoes is worn out.
Iris Murdoch
Some people are so worn down by the yoke of oppression that they give up.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I think Instagram made me more aware that there’s actually people that care about what we do, and that we have fans. So that kind of showed me that maybe the people that follow me every day, and are commenting on my pictures, would want to wear the dress I’ve worn.
Toni Garrn
I have twenty years of training like a spartan behind me. It has caught up with me. My body is broken down. I’ve been worn out.
Mirko Cro Cop
Even though I was still able to make some All-Star teams, mentally I was worn out. And once I wore out mentally, physically I started to wear down.
Jermaine O’Neal
To see my country lose a football match is very hard for someone who has worn the shirt.
Diego Maradona
Every day of my adult life, I have worn at least one piece of jewelry from my maternal grandmother’s collection, all of which were manufactured by famed Danish silversmith Georg Jensen. To the naked eye, I am either a Jensen loyalist or a grandmother loyalist. Really I am just a Pretty Things loyalist.
Sloane Crosley
Human nature will not flourish, any more than a potato, if it be planted and replanted, for too long a series of generations, in the same worn-out soil. My children have had other birthplaces, and, so far as their fortunes may be within my control, shall strike their roots into unaccustomed earth.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Just as we outgrow a pair of trousers, we outgrow acquaintances, libraries, principles, etc., at times before they’re worn out and times – and this is the worst of all – before we have new ones.
Georg C. Lichtenberg
I have worn myself thin trying to find out about this comet, and I know very little now in the matter.
Maria Mitchell
Perhaps not as badly applied and not as obvious, but for thousands of years, people have worn makeup on stage.
Robert Smith
I’ve not worn a dress since about 1985. It always amazes me how there is still a fascination for it in England. The rest of the world doesn’t seem to care. I’m not sure whether they don’t remember or whether they’ve just moved on from it. I was brought up in the glam era.
Martin Gore
To the eyes of a miser a guinea is more beautiful than the sun, and a bag worn with the use of money has more beautiful proportions than a vine filled with grapes.
William Blake
In the past, the biggest mistake I’ve made has been trying to treat election night like the first and last time anyone will ever see me on TV. I’ve worn dresses that were more prom time than primetime.
Harris Faulkner
White pants should be worn on two occasions: One, never. And two, if you’re selling ice cream.
Greg Proops
Oscar Wilde turned the world upside down and was able to laugh at it, and hopefully by the time I’m 120 and worn out, that’s what I will achieve. I love being alive so much.
John Lydon
Stepan Arkadyevitch had not chosen his political opinions or his views; these political opinions and views had come to him of themselves, just as he did not choose the shapes of his hat and coat, but simply took those that were being worn.
Leo Tolstoy
I prefer to leave a little room in my bag to grab goodies when I’m travelling, but otherwise you need one good pair of shoes that can be worn day or night, a pair of black jeans, and a nice dress.
Dree Hemingway
I think any songwriter or record, no matter how good it is, can become tedious if it’s the same person’s point of view. After four tracks, you start to get worn down no matter how good it is. It can be relentlessly good, but it’s still going to wear you out.
Andrew Bird
I admit to having worn suede and leather pants myself for a while, but you just never feel clean, and it’s degenerate, anyway, to wear animal skins…. So I went back to bluejeans after my degenerate period.
Andy Warhol
I used to sort of consider myself a feminist, an environmentalist, and I still have some of that in me, but I’ve done so many offensive comedies, I’m now worn down to a little nub of… nub of an activist.
Anna Faris
I want to send a very clear message to the men and women who are wearing – or who have worn – our country’s uniform and to their spouses: when you have finished your service to our nation, you’ve got 2,000 great American companies ready and waiting to bring you on board
Michelle Obama
It’s no one’s fault to be born ugly, but, honestly, must it be worn as a symbol of pride?
Joan Collins
People have always worn Cleveland shirts and supported Cleveland no matter how bad the teams were or how close we were. It didn’t matter. That’s really all about the city. We’re just hardworking people that love the city and don’t care how the teams do.
Stipe Miocic
My life is like my shoes, worn out by service.
Spencer W. Kimball
Whoever makes love grow boundless, and sets his mind for seeing the end of birth, his fetters are worn thin. If he loves even a single being, Good will follow. But the Noble One with compassionate heart for all mankind, generates abounding good.
Gautama Buddha
I think women want to feel beautiful. They want to feel seductive. I also try to think about items that can be worn in different ways so they can be worn more than once. If you’re going to buy a $2,000 jacket, you are going to want to wear it over and over.
Joseph Altuzarra
Not a ray is dimmed, not an atom worn; nature’s oldest force is as good as new.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The problem was that I’d never worn a bikini before. My dad doesn’t allow them. He thinks even one-pieces show too much skin and constantly suggests that Jane and I wear wet suits.
Janette Rallison
My overcoat is worn out my shirts also are worn out. And I ask to be allowed to have a lamp in the evening it is indeed wearisome sitting alone in the dark.
William Tyndale
An intemperate, disorderly youth will bring to old age, a feeble and worn-out body.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
The lines on your face are your medals. You’ve earned them, so why shouldn’t they be worn with honour?
Cherie Lunghi
I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.
Henry David Thoreau
A stair not worn hollow by footsteps is, regarded from its own point of view, only a boring something made of wood.
Franz Kafka
If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thru chinks of his cavern.
William Blake
I’ve worn a 100% polyester cheerleading outfit in stadiums full of people – it is pretty hard to embarrass me.
Jonathan Van Ness
The citizen who sees his society’s democratic clothes being worn out and does not cry it out, is not a patriot, but a traitor.
Mark Twain
My husband has a wife who is happy to wander round in old leggings held up with worn elastic. I’m happy with who I am and I’m more concerned with other issues and trying any way I can to make a better world for our children.
Konnie Huq
I’m trying to not follow fashion. I don’t even like the word. But I do like clothes, and I like nicely cut clothes that last and that are built to be worn for the next 30 years.
Robbie Williams
Everything was in stark and dreadful contrast with the trivial crises and counterfeit emotions of Hollywood, and I returned to England deeply moved and emotionally worn out.
C. S. Forester
I really want to get into designing my own business suit. I’ve designed a couple suits for myself that I’ve worn in the past, and I have a good idea of what I want and need to use.
Ryan Lochte
I think “waste of your brain” is something that my mother would say to me occasionally – I think it’s usually when I’m telling her something like that I can remember every outfit I’ve ever worn.
Florence Welch
All things uncomely and broken, all things worn out and old The cry of a child by the roadway, the creak of a lumbering cart, The heavy steps of the plowman, splashing the wintry mold, Are wronging your image that blossoms a rose in the deeps of my heart.
William Butler Yeats
I am worn out by the insults and vexations that this work brings down on us.
Jean le Rond d’Alembert
Social Security was designed to give a few years of modest benefits to people whose bodies were worn out through coal mining, factory work and other physically demanding labor.
Louis Navellier
I’ve worn a chainmail suit to swim with sharks, glided over Cirencester with a James Bond-style paramotor strapped to my back, eaten hippo steaks and had a bat dive down my bra. And all the while, I had to face the camera and smile.
Konnie Huq
How you die out in me: down to the last worn-out knot of breath you’re there, with a splinter of life.
Paul Celan
I have walked a stair of swords, I have worn a coat of scars. I have vowed with hollow words, I have lied my way to the stars -Songs of Sapphique
Catherine Fisher
Next to clothes being fine, they should be well made, and worn easily; for a man is only the less genteel for a fine coat, if, in wearing it, he shows a regard for it, and is not as easy in it as if it was a plain one.
Lord Chesterfield
Truth is a point, the subtlest and finest; harder than adamant; never to be broken, worn away, or blunted. Its only bad quality is, that it is sure to hurt those who touch it; and likely to draw blood, perhaps the life blood, of those who press earnestly upon it.
Walter Savage Landor
Our life is what we make it. An insignificant game or a noble trial; a dream or a reality; a play of the senses worn out in selfish use, and flying “swifter than a weaver’s shuttle,” or an ascension of the soul, by daily duties and unfaltering faith, to more spiritual relations and to loftier toils.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
It is monstrous that custom should force us to display our faces ostentatiously, however worn and wrinkled and mean they may be, whilst carefully concealing all our other parts, however shapely and well preserved.
George Bernard Shaw
Makeup isn’t something I’ve worn a lot of in my life.
Lupita Nyong’o
I am a woman now! It‘s true. No, honestly, I‘ve never worn a bra in my life, ever!
Kate Moss
And how much better to die in all the happy period of undisillusioned youth, to go out in a blaze of light, than to have your body worn out and old and illusions shattered.
Ernest Hemingway
This is the true joy of life-the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one, the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown to the scrap-heap; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish clod of ailments and grievances.
George Bernard Shaw
The soil of friendship is worn out with constant use. Habit may still attach us to each other, but we feel ourselves fettered by it. Old friends might be compared to old married people without the tie of children.
William Hazlitt
We don’t have to know,only to be:let go the jumble of worn words,reason and vanity.
Hilda Doolittle
I thought everyone must know that a short jacket is always worn with a silk hat at a private view in the morning.
Edward VII
I’m not interested in creating a book that is read once and then placed on the shelf and forgotten. I am very happy when people have worn out my books, or that they’re held together by Scotch tape.
Richard Scarry
Spirituality for the most part is a mask worn by idleness, arrogance and greed.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Oh, how I regret not having worn a bikini for the entire year I was twenty-six. If anyone young is reading this, go, right this minute, put on a bikini, and don’t take it off until you’re thirty-four.
Nora Ephron
I also think he is given to disguises…Sometimes he wears spectacles and sometimes he does not. And twice he has worn an extremely peculiar hat. Inside.
Julia Quinn
One dress I love – for me, it’s a little edgy – it’s sleeveless. It’s black and it’s leather. I’ve worn it on TV.
Dana Bash
A bear remains a bear – even when most of him has fallen off or worn away.
Charlotte Gray
I’ve always just worn bows. They just got bigger and better and sparklier – and then I became ‘JoJo with the bow bow,’ and it became a thing.
JoJo Siwa
Moon, worn thin to the width of a quill,/ In the dawn clouds flying,/ How good to go, light into light, and still/ Giving light, dying.
Sara Teasdale
You can’t staple me to the Brooklyn hipster. I don’t buy skinny jeans and $50 T-shirts. I wear the same clothes I’ve always worn, from Target.
Brian Fallon
Painted faces, sun burnt skin, fixed expressions, smiles worn thin.
Chaka Khan
I’d worn the same Carhartts and hoodies for years, and only bought clothes when the ones I had tore too many holes.
Stephanie Land
Among the southern tribes, on the contrary, hats were sometimes worn in the dance, although this was not considered in strict accordance with the doctrine.
James Mooney
Sometimes, when we dress celebrities, there are always loads of Twitters and things like that. When I wake up, I think, ‘Oh right, she wore it.’ You kind of always know where it’s going to be worn.
Jenny Packham
Worn out places, worn out faces.
Gary Jules
A lot of stuff happens daily when you’re running a company like Subway. If you get too happy about some things or too unhappy about others, you get worn out. It’s best if you can pace yourself a little bit more.
Fred DeLuca
Let others, worn with living / And living’s aftermath, / Take Sleep to heal the heart’s distress, / Take Love to be their comfortress, / Take Song or Food or Fancy Dress, / But I shall take a Bath.
Phyllis McGinley
I’ve always loved the rustic, slightly worn style of Canvas and that element of an artisanal hand. It’s so inherently chic.
Jason Wu
I take things that are worn out through overuse, that have become cliches – like the shed, a traditional place of rest and retreat – and I give them a more incandescent future.
Cornelia Parker
We all have scars […] Better by far for them to be worn on the outside.
David Gemmell
We ought not to treat living creatures like shoes or household belongings, which when worn with use we throw away.
I usually like loud T-shirts and band shirts, so I just try to keep it as simple as possible with jeans and white kicks that are worn in and, like, a simple jacket.
Antoni Porowski
I think I would like to have lived in the 1930s and worn beautiful bias cut dresses all the time.
Nanette Lepore
Every few weeks, I’d really be worn down. The doctor said just take time off, but it became apparent that the exercise you need to be a top-level athlete brought the symptoms on.
Tucker Halpern
That was my way of putting it-not very satisfactory: A periphrastic study in a worn-out poetical fashion, Leaving one still with the intolerable wrestle With words and meanings.
T. S. Eliot
Films go into vaults, art into museums, and music into halls of fame. Most fashion is worn for a few seasons and off-loaded into the recycling bin or, worse, some landfill.
Robin Givhan
There are those who believe justice and dignity are reserved only for some people. Young men have died in police custody, and the growing heel of poverty has worn down harder on children of color…We must fight back.
Elizabeth Warren
He that humbles himself shall be preserved entire. He that bends shall be made straight. He that is empty shall be filled. He that is worn out shall be renewed. He who has little shall succeed. He who has much shall go astray.
As a girl, she was a legal prey, especially if she was dressed in a worn black leather jacket and had pierced eyebrows, tattoos, and zero social status.
Steig Larsson
I’ve never worn costume jewelry in my life. It’s really very self-defeating. Why should a man buy a woman real jewelry when she wears false pieces?
Gloria Guinness
I feel the sexiest in my husband’s t-shirts, especially after he’s worn it all day.
Tia Mowry
I love Louboutins and Jimmy Choos, but I’ve got pairs I’ve never worn, because I’m still waiting to find the outfit that will go with them.
Laila Rouass
A successful lawsuit is the one worn by a policeman.
Robert Frost
Reality is only a term, based on values and well worn principles, whereas the dream goes on forever.
Ian Curtis
Why should not the camera artist break away from the worn out conventions and claim the freedom of expression which any art must have to be alive.
Alvin Langdon Coburn
I lay there in my black slip dress and wondered if I ought to have worn pants. I mean, who knew what I was going to find up there? What if I had to do some climbing? People might see my underwear.
Meg Cabot
I’ve never worn the same pair of shoes twice, ever. That’s a fact.
Enzo Amore
A suit is just a suit: a practical garment, not a ceremonial robe; it can be worn out to dinner with friends or for a visit to an art gallery. Its beauty and craftsmanship are utterly wasted if you think of it as something magical and symbolic.
Russell Smith
Buonaparte has often made his boast that our fleet would be worn out by keeping the sea and that his was kept in order and increasing by staying in port; but know he finds, I fancy, if Emperors hear the truth, that his fleet suffers more in a night than ours in one year.
Horatio Nelson
American closets are filled with once-worn clothes that got a bad review from a friend on their first appearance.
Andy Rooney
Science fiction is an amazing literature: plot elements that you would think would be completely worn out by now keep changing into surprising new forms.
Connie Willis
Manet did not do the expected. He was a pioneer. He followed his individual whim. Told the public what he wanted it to know, not the time worn things the public already knew and thought it wanted to hear again. The public was very much offended.
Robert Henri
O, Men’s vows are women’s traitors! All good seeming, By thy revolt, O husband, shall be thought Put on for villainy, not born where’t grows, But worn a bait for ladies.
William Shakespeare
In daily terms, the work of listening is to be constantly worn free of our preconceptions and preferences so that nothing stands in the way of our direct experience of life.
Mark Nepo
Of course you can still paint landscape – it’s not been worn out.
David Hockney
O Earth, O Earth, return! Arise from out the dewy grass; Night is worn; And the morn Rises from the slumbrous mass.
William Blake
I thought, as a kid, that I was The Doctor’s biggest fan, so my mum and dad bought me a battery-operated Dalek. I must have worn it out, I played with it so much.
Bradley Walsh
I have worn my white and purple, colors of the Suffragettes, in honor of the fact that we have our first woman president, soon to be, Hillary Clinton, elected president of the United States.
Nancy Pelosi
With anything you do in life, there are days where you’re worn out and you don’t want to do it for a second.
Charles Kelley
I am all for trying out various kinds of hair styles. I have even worn a wig earlier in a film where I essayed the part of a woman.
Riteish Deshmukh
Sometimes I feel… that my cross is heavy beyond endurance… My heart seems worn out and bruised beyond repair, and in my deep loneliness I often wish to be gone, but God knows best, and I want to do every ounce of work He wants me to do.
Charles Studd
It is very difficult to be learned; it seems as if people were worn out on the way to great thoughts, and can never enjoy them because they are too tired.
George Eliot
There were details like clothing, hair styles and the fragile objects that hardly ever survive for the archaeologist-musical instruments, bows and arrows, and body ornaments depicted as they were worn… No amounts of stone and bone could yield the kinds of information that the paintings gave so freely
Mary Leakey
I was worn out, broken: He had taken almost everything. But he’d been all I’d had, all this time. And when the police led him away, I pulled out of the hands of all these loved one, sobbing, screaming, everything hurting, to try and make him stay.
Sarah Dessen
I may seem to have worn a lot of tights in films, but actually, those are just the films that have been most visible or worked best. I have worn jeans a lot, too, but those ones haven’t tended to work so well.
Joseph Fiennes
It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life.
Priscilla Shirer
A few days after 9/11, I put the old cassette of ‘Born in the U.S.A.,’ twisted and worn, on the car deck as I drove past West Point, across the Bear Mountain Bridge, along the Hudson River. It was the perfect moment to hear it.
David Means
He who can curb his wrath as soon as it arises, as a timely antidote will check snake’s venom that so quickly spreads, – such a monk gives up the here and the beyond, just as a serpent sheds its worn-out skin.
Gautama Buddha
The crazy thing is I got all of these shoes, and probably 80 percent of them I’ve never worn before. I’ve worn all the glasses. I sleep in them, bend them up a little bit. Glasses are on all the time except when I’m at practice or at work.
Von Miller
Horror is the badge of humanity, worn proudly, self-righteously, and often falsely.
Poppy Z. Brite
This club needs an impetus of energy – but I just feel tired to be honest. I’m worn out.
Ian Holloway
And then we ease him out of that worn-out body with a kiss, and he’s gone like a whisper, the easiest breath.
Mark Doty
I hadn’t bargained for this. I didn’t think it would be like this – shabby clothes, worn-out shoes, circles under your eyes, your hair getting straight and lanky, the way people look at you. … I didn’t think it would be like this
Jean Rhys
Sunset Boulevard’ – the story of Hollywood movies draped on a depressing sex affair – is an uncompromising study of American decadence displaying a sad, worn, methodical beauty few films have had since the late twenties.
Manny Farber
In old age our bodies are worn-out instruments, on which the soul tries in vain to play the melodies of youth. But because the instrument has lost its strings, or is out of tune, it does not follow that the musician has lost his skill.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I’m tempting you with fine gifts until your girlish ideals are quite worn away and you are at my mercy.
Margaret Mitchell
My brain’s gone, my soul’s worn and my spirit is torn The rest of my body’s still bein operated on.
Tired faith all worn and thin, for all we could have done, and all that could have been.
Trent Reznor
I am very happy when people write that they have worn out my books, or that they are held together by Scotch tape. I consider that the ultimate compliment.
Richard Scarry
I believe crop tops can be worn with literally anything, but I think it’d be really cool to pair them with track pants.
Ananya Panday
I kind of just roll up on stage. I realize that as soon as I find myself wearing something that I haven’t worn ten times in the past, I’m like, “Who am I right now? I don’t recognize myself!”
Martina Sorbara
I don’t want to talk about methods of killing. But what is the difference between a bomb worn on the body and one dropped from an airplane? Both of them kill people.
Bashar al-Assad
I want to thank all the women who have worn my clothes, the famous and the unknown, who have been so faithful to me and given me so much joy.
Yves Saint Laurent
Nature, they say, doth dote,
And cannot make a man
Save on some worn-out plan
Repeating us by rote:
For him her Old World moulds aside she threw
And, choosing sweet clay from the breast
Of the unexhausted West,
With stuff untainted shaped a hero new.
James Russell Lowell
The flood subsides, and the body, like a worn sea-shell
emerges strange and lovely.
D. H. Lawrence
Where is the world whose people don’t prefer a comfortable, warm, and well-worn belief, however illogical, to the chilly winds of uncertainty.
Isaac Asimov
A handbag is only one item to be worn with a complete outfit. Add a peony pink leather handbag to a charcoal gray suit, for instance, and the impact is chic with a touch of wit.
Kate Spade
No greater tragedy exists in modern civilization than the aged, worn-out worker who after a life of ceaseless effort and useful productivity must look forward for his declining years to a poorhouse. A modern social consciousness demands a more humane and efficient arrangement.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
To witness that calm rhythm of life revives our worn souls and recaptures a feeling of belonging to the natural world. No one can return from the Serengeti unchanged, for tawny lions will forever prowl our memory and great herds throng our imagination.
George Schaller
‘When I’m Sixty-Four’ hasn’t worn well, but George Harrison’s ‘Within You Without You’ is awesome.
Paul Rodgers
You can’t really hit on grass. There are lots of bad bounces, so when the guy plays deep into the spot where the grass has been worn down and he doesn’t leave you the time to play, you don’t have time to play fast yourself.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Knitwear can play a vital part in layering. The simplicity of a lightweight cardigan makes it one of the best ways to layer outfits. I love granddad cardis for winter, worn over a vintage lace shirt, waistcoat and full skirt with slouchy boots.
I no longer want to walk on worn soles.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Except in this ignorant and material century, men have always worn precious stuffs and beautiful colours as well as women.
Wilkie Collins
The Sacred isn’t housed in a building or worn around your neck or something in the sky. The Sacred is the here and now we reside in, all breathing the same air, all imbibing the same water and made of the same earth with ‘the life force’ flowing through all living things.
Jaune Quick–to–See Smith
It is impossible to be completely abstract about clothes because they have no life unless they are worn. They must fit onto a body or they do not exist.
Elizabeth Hawes
I’m really interested in the idea of anomynity and familiarity. And sunglasses, you know, are so indicatitve of that. I mean, they’re worn by some people to hide themselves. But they’re also a fashion statement, meant to be noticed. So there’s a dichotomy there.
Sarah Dessen
I’ve never worn incredible clothes – I’m not used to playing someone so put together and fashionable.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
If those who hold influence over others fail to lead toward the spiritual uplands, then surely the path to the lowlands will be well worn.
J. Oswald Sanders
I really wish you hadn’t worn that sweater,’he muttered into her ear. ‘It’s good practice for you,’ she replied,her lips moving against his skin. ‘Tomorrow,fishnets.’ Against her side,warm and familiar,she felt him laugh.
Cassandra Clare
Judge [Samuel] Alito should see criticism as a badge of honor worn by many past and present members of the Court.
Chuck Grassley
I am disgusted and worn out with the system that seems to prevail.
John Buford
Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God be for you, who can be against you? Are all of them together stronger than God? O be not weary of well doing!
John Wesley
By the mid-1990s, nearly everything in North Korea was worn out, broken, malfunctioning. The country had seen better days.
Barbara Demick
I’ve worn a dress at my wedding. I’ve worn 6-inch Louboutins. I’ve got no fear and no shame.
A. J. McLean
Sunglasses are a bit like watches for me – a real obsession. My favourites are Oakleys, Ray-Bans and Wileys, which are worn by the U.S. military.
Ross Kemp
‘The New York Times’ is inherent in what we are, but not worn as ‘what we are’; it’s important and crucial to all of us, but not something that was drilled in, in any specific ways.
Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr.
The pleasure in lovers’ gifts is that they are often covert and secretive, worn next to the skin, hidden under pillows.
A. A. Gill
The character we exhibit in the latter half of our life need not necessarily be, though it often is, our original character, developed further, dried up, exaggerated, or diminished. It can be its exact opposite, like a suit worn inside out.
Marcel Proust
I don’t think I have ever worn more outfits over the course of four days than I did Emmy weekend. You barely sleep. You don’t eat.
Allison Tolman
I like hair that’s been ‘worn in’ because it’s much easier to deal with…. I actually don’t like it when [models] come in with this beautiful, thick, glossy hair. I think, Oh, no! I can’t do a thing with this!
Guido Palau
Art is like baby shoes. When you coat them with gold, they can no longer be worn.
John Updike
High in the North in a land called Svithjod there is a mountain. It is a hundred miles long and a hundred miles high and once every thousand years a little bird comes to this mountain to sharpen its beak. When the mountain has thus been worn away a single day of eternity will have passed
Hendrik Willem van Loon
There’s no point having something worn on your body – that’s a big ask – unless you can give people something they really couldn’t get otherwise. It has to be qualitatively better for it to be worn.
Astro Teller
I would say I spend about an hour a day cleansing and moisturising after all of the make-up I’ve worn on jobs, and on weekends I tend to go bare-faced to give my skin a bit of a break.
Poppy Delevingne
The Ballon d’Or presentation will be the first time I’ve ever worn black tie!
Mason Mount
I think it’s real important to show style now. The majority of style right now is to act like you don’t have style at all, so most companies are getting rich off clothes that look torn, clothes that look worn.
Andre Benjamin
It is different for us mortals. We are the ones who become old and grey. We are the ones who become worn at the seams and disappear. But not our dreams. They can live on in other people even after we have gone.
Jostein Gaarder
Albertans have always worn their passions on their sleeves.
Ralph Klein
My memories of them had rubbed thin with overuse, worn to frail color transparencies flickering on the walls of my mind…
Tana French
It was just great to wear the Brazil shirt in the senior team for the first time. I’d already worn it before playing for various age groups in the youth teams but it’s very different playing for the Brazilian first team.
‘Ready’ is dedicated to young people who are not yet jaded and worn down by the realities of this world.
I have never worn a watch. I did at 17 and it annoyed me.
Eve Best
The brightest crowns that are worn in heaven have been tried, and smelted, and polished and glorified through the furnaces of tribulation.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
I believe that anything can be for men or women. I mean, I’ve worn a lace dress before!
Marc Jacobs
Even though it was the 70s, we found old stocks of clothes that had never been worn from the 50s and took them apart. I started to teach myself how to make clothes from that kind of formula.
Vivienne Westwood
The question before me, now that I am old, is not how to be dead, which I know from enough practice, but how to be alive, as these worn hills still tell, and some paintings of Paul Cezanne, and this mere singing wren, who thinks he’s alive forever, this instant, and may be.
Wendell Berry
It was a pleasant cafe, warm and clean and friendly, and I hung up my old water-proof on the coat rack to dry and put my worn and weathered felt hat on the rack above the bench and ordered a cafe au lait. The waiter brought it and I took out a notebook from the pocket of the coat and a pencil and started to write.
Ernest Hemingway
In the first weeks I had occasionally worn clothes in the morning before the sun began its ascent, but very soon I abandoned this habit, and the only bit of material I ever wore was the strip of sari cloth around my hips, which was so useful for making into a bag to collect coconuts on walks.
Lucy Irvine
You’re making the grant of affection, forbearance, mercy, out of your own experience and, of course, out of cultural tradition. You’re saying, to use the well-worn analogy, if I love my children, that puts me under obligation to assume that other people love theirs.
Wendell Berry
Provenance is something very important in jewelry. You want to know who has worn a piece of jewelry and who it has belonged to – it’s part of its history, part of its aura.
Simon de Pury
I feel like I’m stepping into a place of spiritual contemplation every time I enter a studio; it’s always had a certain magic to me that has never worn off with familiarity.
David Knopfler
Stephen Jones’ hats are what we used to call ‘creations’; extravagant, odd things for extravagant, odd people like Madonna or Lady Gaga. They’re worn in a parallel universe.
Peter York
Books were like old friends, with their worn covers and well-thumbed pages.
Naomi Ragen
To put it mildly, nothing can be turned and worn inside out with greater ease than one’s notion of social justice, public conscience, a better future, etc.
Joseph Brodsky
I wonder why there is a designated hitter in baseball after all these years? As an experiment, it seemed like a swell enough idea, but you would think the novelty would have worn off by now and everyone would get back to playing baseball.
Jay Mohr
I haven’t worn make-up since my wedding, and my husband loves me a lot.
Leandra Medine
Let’s embrace more of life, not less. Balanced people don’t change the world, and I’d rather spend my time feeling worn out from meaningful activities and projects.
Chris Guillebeau
Being a part-time pop star was perfect, really, when I wasn’t worn out by the partying.
Phil Daniels
