Famous quotes containing the words heels and/or wearing:

    And there were present
    the Picninnies,
    and the Jobillies,
    and the Garyulies,
    and the great Panjandrum himself,
    with the little round button at top;
    and they all fell to playing the game
    of catch-as-catch-can,
    till the gunpowder ran out at the heels of their boots.
    Samuel Foote (1720–1777)

    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)
