Everyone said I could be Anything. So I became Sexy!
A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks.
I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker color.
In the world, there exists no aesthetic plane, not even the aesthetic plane of goodness.
All efforts to make politics aesthetic culminate in one thing, war.
Aesthetic life is not something sophisticated – that’s a humanistic lie. Aesthetic life is as integral to being human as building sandcastles on the beach and giving your children names.
In judging of a beautiful statue, the aesthetic faculty is absolutely and completely gratified by the splendid curves of those marble lips that are dumb to our complaint, the noble modeling of those limbs that are powerless to help us.
Art has the qualities of aesthetic beauty, purity, transcendence.
Love is an aesthetic, studded with fairy tales.
It’s odd that there is a high level of appreciation of nature. There is the aesthetic side that really loves nature and beauty.
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
Life is a party. Dress for it.
My look is attainable. Women can look like Audrey Hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying the large sunglasses, and the little sleeveless dresses.
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles.
Night gives a black look to everything, whatever it may be.
I think I’ve heard somebody say that I was a well-dressed golfer. I guess that has something to do with the fact that a lot of people who play golf don’t dress very well.
In words, as fashions, the same rule will hold; Alike fantastic, if too new, or old: Be not the first by whom the new are tried, Nor yet the last to lay the old aside.
I want to keep improving, continue to help my teammates improve, make my teammates look good. Continue bringing something new to the game, never getting completely content, and always trying to get better.
Sunglasses are great, but I always feel a bit pretentious wearing sunglasses. I mean, I do love to wear them.
Personal beauty is a greater recommendation than any letter of reference.
