Attire Quotations

Humility and knowledge in poor clothes excel pride and ignorance in costly attire.
William Penn

Great men are seldom over-scrupulous in the arrangement of their attire.
Charles Dickens

Even from their infancy we frame them to the sports of love: their instruction, behavior, attire, grace, learning and all their words azimuth only at love, respects only affection. Their nurses and their keepers imprint no other thing in them.
Michel de Montaigne

Sisters, when about their work, should not put on clothing which would make them look like images to frighten the crows from the corn. It is more gratifying to their husbands and children to see them in a becoming, well-fitting, attire, than it can be to merely visitors or strangers.
Ellen G. White

When the sappy boughs Attire themselves with blooms, sweet rudiments Of future harvest.
