Famous quotes containing the words jacket, dress and/or blue:
“Old age begins in the nursery, and before the young American is put into jacket and trowsers, he says, I want something which I never saw before and I wish I was not I.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“Hardly ever can a youth transferred to the society of his betters unlearn the nasality and other vices of speech bred in him by the associations of his growing years. Hardly ever, indeed, no matter how much money there be in his pocket, can he ever learn to dress like a gentleman-born. The merchants offer their wares as eagerly to him as to the veriest swell, but he simply cannot buy the right things.”
—William James (18421910)

from the weight of blue bees,

—Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)
