Famous quotes containing the word garments:

    Our purses shall be proud, our garments poor,
    For ‘tis the mind that makes the body rich,
    And as the sun breaks through the darkest clouds,
    So honor peereth in the meanest habit.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Women are in bondage; their clothes are a great hindrance to their engaging in any business which will make them pecuniarily independent, and since the soul of womanhood never can be queenly and noble so long as it must beg bread for its body, is it not better, even at the expense of a vast deal of annoyance, that they whose lives deserve respect and are greater than their garments should give an example by which woman may more easily work out her own emancipation?
    Lucy Stone (1818–1893)

    It is principally for the sake of the leg that a change in the dress of man is so much to be desired.... The leg is the best part of the figure ... and the best leg is the man’s.... Man should no longer disguise the long lines, the strong forms, in those lengths of piping or tubing that are of all garments the most stupid.
    Alice Meynell (1847–1922)
