Famous quotes containing the word dress:

    Hardly ever can a youth transferred to the society of his betters unlearn the nasality and other vices of speech bred in him by the associations of his growing years. Hardly ever, indeed, no matter how much money there be in his pocket, can he ever learn to dress like a gentleman-born. The merchants offer their wares as eagerly to him as to the veriest “swell,” but he simply cannot buy the right things.
    William James (1842–1910)

    We give lovely parties that last through the night,
    I dress as a woman and scream with delight,
    We wake up at lunch time and find we’re still tight.
    What could be duller than that?
    Noël Coward (1899–1973)
