For the adult, all the world is a stage and the personality is the mask one wears to play the assigned role.
He may be more potent than any other man. The damnable iteration dayafter day of earnest conviction wears like the dropping of the water upon the stone.William Thomas Stead
No radiant pearl, which crested Fortune wears, No gem that twinkling hangs from Beauty's ears, Not the bright stars which Night's blue arch adorn, Nor rising suns that gild the vernal morn, Shine with such lustre as the tear that flows Down Virtue's manly cheek for others' woes.erasmus darwin
Learning and enjoyment are the secret to a fulfilled life. Learning without enjoyment wears you down, enjoyment without learning dulls you.richard david precht
Where refugees seek deliverance that never comesAnd the heart consumes itself as if it would live,Where children age before their timeAnd life wears down the edges of the mind,Where the old man sits with mind grown cold,While bones and sinew, blood and cell, go slowly down to death,Where fear companions each day's life,And Perfect Love seems long delayed.CHRISTMAS IS WAITING TO BE BORN:In you, in me, in all mankind.howard thurman
Constant dropping wears away the stone.
The Philippines is where Asia wears a smile. Beautiful products can only be made by happy people.imelda marcos
United States, your banner wears Two emblems one of fame; Alas! the other that it bears Reminds us of your shame. Your banner's constellation types White freedom with its stars, But what's the meaning of the stripes? They mean your negroes' scars.thomas campbell
Boy, I got vision. The rest of the world wears bifocals.
Bring the rathe primrose that forsaken dies, The tufted crow-toe, and pale gessamine, The white pink, and the pansy freaked with jet, The glowing violet, The musk-rose, and the well attir'd woodbine, With cowslips wan that hang the pensive head, And every flower that sad embroidery wears: Bid amaranthus all his beauty shed, And daffadillies fill their cups with tears, To strew the laureate hearse where Lycid lies.john milton
She wears a artful bonnet, feathers stuck upon it,Coverin' a fringe all curled;She's just about the sweetest, prettiest and neatestDoner in the wide, wide world!And she'll be Missis 'Awkins, Missis 'En'ry 'Awkins,Got 'er for to name the day;Settled it last Monday, so to church on Sunday,Off we trots the donkey shay!albert chevalier
He has a woman's name and wears makeup. How original.alice cooper
Like any child, I slid into myself perfectly fitted, as a diver meets her reflection in a pool. Her fingertips enter the fingertips on the water, her wrists slide up her arms. The diver wraps herself in her reflection wholly, sealing it at the toes, and wears it as she climbs rising from the pool, and ever after.Annie Dillard
The past and future are veiled; but the past wears the widow's veil; the future, the virgin's.jean paul
No one knows where the shoe pinches, but he who wears it.
Ideas matter. Legislative proposals matter. Slick campaigns and dazzling speeches can work for a while, but the magic always wears off.charles krauthammer
He that respects himself is safe from others; he wears a coat of mail that none can pierce.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The only faith that wears well and holds its color in all weathers, is that which is woven of conviction and set with the sharp mordant of experience.james russell lowell
Who knows what true loneliness is not the conventional word, but the naked terror? To the lonely themselves it wears a mask. The most miserable outcast hugs some memory or some illusion.joseph conrad
Modern civilization is so complex as to make the devotional life all but impossible. It wears us out by multiplying distractions and beats us down by destroying our solitude, where otherwise we might drink and renew our strength before going out to face the world again. “The thoughtful soul to solitude retires,” said the poet of other and quieter times; but where is the solitude to which we can retire today? Science, which has provided men with certain material comforts, has robbed them of their souls by surrounding them with a world hostile to their existence.aiden wilson tozer
I love the American Apparel long-sleeve waffle shirt. You can't do it too much. If you wear a long-sleeve black T-shirt every single day, nobody's going to say, "That guy wears a long-sleeve black T-shirt too much." If you're wearing a sweatshirt that says "Gap Est. 1969" on it, you've got a couple days of wearing that before someone goes, "Why don't you do some laundry?"
The seed ye sow, another reaps; The wealth ye find, another keeps: The robes ye weave, another wears: The arms ye forge another bears.Percy Bysshe Shelley
A crown golden in show, is but a wreath of thorns. Brings dangers, troubles, cares, and sleepless nights to him who wears the regal diadem.john milton
She wears her clothes as if they were thrown on her with a pitchfork.jonathan swift
Tell him, he wears the rose Of youth upon him.
The serpent that did sting thy father's life Now wears his crown.
