Famous quotes containing the word wearing:

    it’s just that I see love as odd as wearing shoes—

    And Ingrid Bergman was always impossible
    Gregory Corso (b. 1930)

    Joan Hackett (1934–1983)

    Euphemisms are not, as many young people think, useless verbiage for that which can and should be said bluntly; they are like secret agents on a delicate mission, they must airily pass by a stinking mess with barely so much as a nod of the head, make their point of constructive criticism and continue on in calm forbearance. Euphemisms are unpleasant truths wearing diplomatic cologne.
    Quentin Crisp (b. 1908)
