Famous quotes containing the word wearing:

    Continued traveling is far from productive. It begins with wearing away the soles of the shoes, and making the feet sore, and ere long it will wear a man clean up, after making his heart sore into the bargain. I have observed that the afterlife of those who have traveled much is very pathetic.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Fashion is the most intense expression of the phenomenon of neomania, which has grown ever since the birth of capitalism. Neomania assumes that purchasing the new is the same as acquiring value.... If the purchase of a new garment coincides with the wearing out of an old one, then obviously there is no fashion. If a garment is worn beyond the moment of its natural replacement, there is pauperization. Fashion flourishes on surplus, when someone buys more than he or she needs.
    Stephen Bayley (b. 1951)

    bodies wrapped in elastic bands,
    bodies cased in wood or used like telephones,
    bodies crucified up onto their crutches,
    bodies wearing rubber bags between their legs,
    bodies vomiting up their juice like detergent,
    bodies smooth and bare as darning eggs.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
