Frivolous Quotations

Blaise Pascal

Albert Schweitzer

It is shallow people who think beauty is frivolous or excessive. If you are bringing beauty and god, you are enriching the country. Rice feeds the body, books feed the mind, beauty feeds the soul. It is one thing I can really be proud of and stand tall in the world.
Imelda Marcos

Dress is at all times a frivolous distinction, and excessive solicitude about it often destroys its own aim.
