Nose Quotations

A smile is happiness you'll find right under your nose.
Tom Wilson

It is clear I was never the Pretty Girl. I had my two front teeth knocked out when I was 10 and didn't fix them until I was 19. I have a crooked smile and a nose that looks like it's been broken 12 times but never has been. My nose was always red, so people called me Rudolph. My whole face is off-center.
Ellen Barkin

Keep your nose out the sky, keep your heart to god, and keep your face to the raising sun.
Kanye West

Smoking is hateful to the nose, harmful to the brain, and dangerous to the lungs.
King James I

For every successful actor or actress, there are countless numbers who don't make it. The name of the game is rejection. You go to an audition and you're told you're too tall or you're too Irish or your nose is not quite right. You're rejected for your education, you're rejected for this or that and it's really tough.
Liam Neeson
