Famous quotes containing the word dress:

    Our passions do not live apart in locked chambers but dress in their small wardrobe of notions, bring their provisions to a common table and mess together, feeding out of the common store according to their appetite.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    An orange on the table,
    Your dress on the rug,
    And you in my bed,
    Sweet present of the present,
    Cool of night,
    Warmth of my life.
    Jacques Prévert (1900–1977)

    The old coat that I wear is Concord; it is my morning robe and study gown, my working dress and suit of ceremony, and my nightgown after all. Cleave to the simplest ever. Home,—home,—home. Cars sound like cares to me.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
