Hair Quotations

The most important thing I can tell you about aging is this: If you really feel that you want to have an off-the-shoulder blouse and some big beads and thong sandals and a dirndl skirt and a magnolia in your hair, do it. Even if you're wrinkled.
Maya Angelou

When I write, I tend to twist my hair. Something for my small mind to do, I guess.
Maya Angelou

And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
Khalil Gibran

When red-haired people are above a certain social grade their hair is auburn.
Mark Twain

Whenever something went wrong when I was young - if I had a pimple or if my hair broke - my mom would say, 'Sister mine, I'm going to make you some soup.' And I really thought the soup would make my pimple go away or my hair stronger.
Maya Angelou
