A vigorous temper is not altogether an evil. Men who are easy as an old shoe are generally of little worth.
No one knows whom the shoe pinches - no one.
If the shoe doesn't fit, must we change the foot?
If a man's fortune does not fit him, it is like the shoe in the story; if too large it trips him up, if too small it pinches him.
A shoe that is too large is apt to trip one, and when too small, to pinch the feet. So it is with those whose fortune does not suit them.
Don't reject a shoe because you can't run in it. It's OK not to run.
Stiletto, I look at it more as an attitude as opposed to a high-heeled shoe.
If there are kids who want to follow in my footsteps, I'd say that my shoes are too big for them to fill! But their shoe size is just perfect.
A work-room should be like an old shoe; no matter how shabby, it's better than a new one.
I mean, the shoe - there is a music to it, there is attitude, there is sound, it's a movement. Clothes - it's a different story. There are a million things I'd rather do before designing clothes: directing, landscaping.
My grandfather worked in a shoe factory - he was an Italian immigrant. My father was the first to go to college in the family.

Wearing a great shoe is essential for me.
The most outrageous shoe that I had to do was a shoe where the person gave me stones - precious stones - and say that I could do anything with precious stones.
I wanted to be a shoe designer, but I never thought it could be a profession. But what was the alternative? Doctor? Too dirty! Air-hostess? Maybe not! Then someone gave me a book on Roger Vivier, and, cheri, instantly I knew that was it!
One thing I detest, I have to say, is when a shoe is too soft, and it's molding to the foot. This is quite disgusting. And I really, really hate incredibly long shoes, where the last is very pointy, almost like Aladdin.
When you sketch a shoe but don't have the intention to do a proper shoe, it remains a curvy sketch with no detail. The shoe completely morphs to the body.
I'm obsessed with sparkle for men. It's so funny watching people's reaction to a disco-ball shoe!
When I left school, I got a job in a shoe shop and I used to save 15 quid a week and pay for my own singing and acting lessons.
I had a great shoe contract and glove contract with a company who paid me a lot of money never to be seen using their stuff.

I became the storyteller of South Side Chicago. I used an old Kiwi liquid shoe polish as a microphone. I'd go around the house interviewing everybody, telling stupid jokes, doing voices. I mimicked Sidney Poitier, Sammy Davis Jr., people on 'Laugh-In,' Flip Wilson.
