Famous quotes containing the words dress and/or ceremonial:

    Let us not deny it up and down. Providence has a wild, rough, incalculable road to its end, and it is of no use to try to whitewash its huge, mixed instrumentalities, or to dress up that terrific benefactor in a clean shirt and white neckcloth of a student of divinity.

    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)
