Dress Quotes

"Christmas won't be Christmas without any presents," grumbled Jo, lying on the rug. "It's so dreadful to be poor!" sighed Meg, looking down at her old dress. "I don't think it's fair for some girls to have plenty of pretty things, and other girls nothing at all," added little Amy, with an injured sniff. "We've got Father and Mother, and each other," said Beth contentedly from her corner. The four young faces on which the firelight shone brightened at the cheerful words, but darkened again as Jo said sadly, "We haven't got Father, and shall not have him for a long time." She didn't say "perhaps never," but each silently added it, thinking of Father far away, where the fighting was.

Alcott, Louisa May

It is not given me to trace The lovely laughter of that face, Like a clear brook most full of light, Or olives swaying on a height, So silver they have wings, almost; Like a great word once known and lost And meaning all things. Nor her voice A happy sound where larks rejoice, Her body, that great loveliness, The tender fashion of her dress, I may not paint them. These I see, Blazing through all eternity, A fire-winged sign, a glorious tree!

Stephen Vincent Bent

The Catholics have it right. I love what they do. That whole "the pope's infallible" thing is tremendous. Let's face facts: If you took somebody with no religious leanings whatsoever and locked that person in a psych ward with nobody around and no stimuli, the Catholic church is exactly what he'd come up with. "Listen to this. There's this old guy in a dress, see? He wears all these great costumes and wherever he says about anything from birth control to what to watch on television, that's it, 'cause pope knows best. He can't lift his head up, but, fuck, he's a genius.

Lewis Niles Black

Give me to live with Love alone And let the world go dine and dress; For Love hath lowly haunts... If life's a flower, I choose my own 'T is "love in Idleness".

Samuel Laman Blanchard

Well I found that picture Of you in that green dress. Sure had a good time Cleanin' up that mess. He found thirty other pieces, But he'll never find them all. Tried to tape them back together. Now he knows to keep them off the wall!

Taylor Swift

With you, I'd dance In a storm, in my best dress Fearless

Taylor Swift

Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone Don't you think I was too young to be messed with, The girl in the dress cried the whole way home, Dear John, I see it all now it was wrong, Don't you think 19s too young to be played by, your dark twisted games when I loved you so.

Taylor Swift

A gaudy dress and gentle air May slightly touch the heart; But it's innocence and modesty that polished the dart.

Robert Burns

O, wad some Power the giftie gie us To see oursels as others see us! It wad frae monie a blunder free us, An' foolish notion. What airs in dress an' gait wad lea'e us An' ev'n Devotion

Robert Burns

Love must kiss that mortals eyes Who hopes to see fair Arcady. No gold can buy you entrance there; But beggared Love may go all bare No wisdom won with weariness; But Love goes in with Follys dress No fame that wit could ever win; But only Love may lead Love in.

Henry Cuyler Bunner
