Famous quotes containing the word wearing:

    Why do you ever mend your clothes, unless that, wearing them, you may mend your ways. Let us sing.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    When children dress like adults they are more likely to behave as adults do, to imitate adult actions. It is hard to walk like an adult male wearing corduroy knickers that make an awful noise. But boys in long pants can walk like men, and little girls in tight jeans can walk like women.
    David Elkind (20th century)

    Kings and queens who wear a suit but once, though made by some tailor or dressmaker to their majesties, cannot know the comfort of wearing a suit that fits. They are no better than wooden horses to hang the clean clothes on.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
