A woman is as old as she looks before breakfast.
E. W. Howe
East Yorkshire, to the uninitiated, just looks like a lot of little hills. But it does have these marvelous valleys that were caused by glaciers, not rivers. So it is unusual.
My only books were woman's looks, and folly's all they've taught me.
I've never had any illusions about being a lead actor in films, because lead actors have to be of a certain kind. Apart from the beauty of looks and figure, which I cannot claim to have, there's just a particular kind of ordinary-Joe quality that a film star needs to have.
I don't understand American football at all. It looks like all-in wrestling with crash helmets.
I like the way black looks. I think I look better in darker clothes. And maybe the fact that I wear black so much makes me more aware of putting people at ease. The black is sort of the bad-guy guise, so I work overtime to make people comfortable.
I think the term poet is a very exalted term and should be applied to a man at the end of his work. When he looks back over the body of his work and he's written poetry then let the verdict be that he's a poet.
Now, it's true I married my wife for her looks... but not the ones she's been givin' me lately.
I believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work.
I like the Alice in Wonderland sculpture in Central Park. I love how it's been rained on forever and looks worn down by time.
Somehow, magically, I've become an electronic musician, and I have a recording studio that looks like the bridge of the Enterprise.
What looks like enjoyment is the sneer of contempt. That's not a smile.
I must be an anorexic because an anorexic looks in the mirror and sees a fat person.
Art has a double visage: it looks before and after. Romance is its forward-looking face. The germ of growth is in romanticism. Formalism, on the other hand, consolidates tradition; gleans what has been gained and makes it facile to the hand or the mind; economizes the energy of genius.
George Edward Woodberry
I absolutely don't care about my looks and I'm so used to them that I wouldn't change a thing. I would end up missing my defects.
I like when a girl knows what she looks like and dresses to accentuate those features.
Every life of a character is within a context. If I write detached from a social and political background, my story looks like a soap opera where everybody is indoors, not working and living off their emotions.
I always wear bronzer because I love the way my skin looks when it's tan.
If you're playing somebody who is not you, then you can imagine that you are that person. You can feel like he feels, move like he moves, look like he looks - in your own mind.
I'm not obsessed by looks. I think you can become a prisoner of your own image.
I don't want a wig that looks like a wig; I want one that could pass for a weave.
We all lose our looks eventually. Better develop your character and interest in life.
I prefer the smaller acting than big histrionics. It's about reacting and looks, which is often underestimated.
People expect a lot more from someone they think looks interesting. It's a burden.
I think there's a danger that we're moving towards a state where the people we are expected to admire are almost not human anymore, and I don't like that. I prefer it when someone looks like a nice person, and you think, 'I could have a laugh with them in the pub.'
John F. Kennedy
