Famous quotes containing the word style:

    In comedy, the witty style wins out over every mishap of the plot.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Style is the dress of thoughts; and let them be ever so just, if your style is homely, coarse, and vulgar, they will appear to as much disadvantage, and be as ill received, as your person, though ever so well-proportioned, would if dressed in rags, dirt, and tatters.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    Many great writers have been extraordinarily awkward in daily exchange, but the greatest give the impression that their style was nursed by the closest attention to colloquial speech.
    Thornton Wilder (1897–1975)
