tidbits from the tip of the tongue // as much as I love the look of this theme, it is frustrating how it does not accept apostrophe in text

“I believe there’s nothing we can know except that we should be kind to each other and do what we can for other people.”

—Katharine Hepburn

“Insane people are always sure that they are fine. It is only the sane people who are willing to admit that they are crazy.”

—Nora Ephron

“Rei Kawakubo invented looking like you got ripped off in a thrift shop. She’s an artist and not trying to be funny exactly, but she’s using wit. My father will never get the joke; he says, “You bought that?!” I wear these things to redneck bars and people would never guess I paid a lot of money for them, It makes me chuckle. But I think it’s the youth that make high fashion pretentious. When I was young I just wore what I could get. You look silly in proper fashion when you’re young but once you’re over 40 you need all the help you can get. I basically pay too much money for clothes that poor people would be embarrassed to wear. Wearing Comme des Garçons is wearing high fashion, but without bragging. And that’s the key, that’s old money and the opposite of nouveau riche.”

—John Waters on Comme des Garçons

“No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your “religious freedom.” If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs.”

Barack Obama

“It is an impressively arrogant move to conclude that just because you don’t like something, it is empirically not good. I don’t like Chinese food, but I don’t write articles trying to prove it doesn’t exist.”

—Tina Fey

“Imitation is not always the sincerest form of flattery. Sometimes it is identity theft.”

—Overheard at work

“I need my relationship with a little bit of milk.”

—Carrie Bradshaw, Sex & the City

“Of course one worries about getting older - we are all fearful of death, let us not kid ourselves. I’m simply not panicking as my laugh lines grow deeper. Who wants a face with no history, no sense of humor?”

—Cate Blanchett

“And though she be but little, she is fierce.”

Shakespeare, from A Midsummer Night’s Dream

“Elegance is a question of personality, more than one’s clothing.”

—Jean-Paul Gaultier
