Famous quotes containing the word worn:

    What we have worn out our iron-soled shoes searching for in vain may come to us without the slightest effort.
    Chinese proverb.

    Designer clothes worn by children are like snowsuits worn by adults. Few can carry it off successfully.
    Fran Lebowitz (20th century)

    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. And also the only real tragedy in life is being used by personally minded men for purposes which you recognize to be base.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
