Curl Quotations

Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
Maya Angelou

When my hair is curly, I use Suave coconut conditioner. It's not a leave-in, but I use it like one. It is so light and really brings out my hair's curl. A lot of leave-ins are too heavy, but this one is just perfect. When it's straight, I love Frederick Fekkai Tech Shampoo & Conditioner and their Olive Oil glossing cream.
Adrienne Bailon

For bedtime reading, I usually curl up with a good monograph on quantum physics or string theory, my specialty. But since I was a child, I have been fascinated by science fiction. My all-time favorite is 'The Foundation Trilogy,' by Isaac Asimov.
Michio Kaku

A career is wonderful, but you can't curl up with it on a cold night.
Marilyn Monroe

When I am talking to people who I feel don't like me or are mean, I get really shy, and I kind of curl up personality wise.
Taylor Swift
