Famous quotes containing the word elegance:

    I am not able to instruct you. I can only tell that I have chosen wrong. I have passed my time in study without experience; in the attainment of sciences which can, for the most part, be but remotely useful to mankind. I have purchased knowledge at the expense of all the common comforts of life: I have missed the endearing elegance of female friendship, and the happy commerce of domestic tenderness.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    For me, elegance is not to pass unnoticed but to get to the very soul of what one is.
    Christian Lacroix (b. 1951)
