Nose Quotations

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

The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

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

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

I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose.
Woody Allen
