There are so many ways of posturing that people associate with being a writer. They imagine you wearing a beret and drinking only red wine and being full of yourself, and so, for a long time, the way I felt about writing was too private. I felt it too important and didn't want to be teased about it. So I lied about it.
Eleanor Catton

10 QUOTES WITH «WEARING»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word wearing.
1
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I am a bit of a fundamentalist when it comes to black women's hair. Hair is hair - yet also about larger questions: self-acceptance, insecurity and what the world tells you is beautiful. For many black women, the idea of wearing their hair naturally is unbearable.
2
Steve Aoki
When I'm at a show, I'm there to have fun. Let's just not care for a moment. So this cake in your face is to make you lose your mind. And it's not about caring about whatever you are wearing and caring what other people are thinking about you. Out of the context, I'm trying to develop something else.
3
B.o.B
You have to feel good in what you're wearing; if you don't feel good it's not going to look good. You ever see someone wear something that's crazy and say, 'That's so crazy!' But they look good in it, because they feel good in it - you can just tell.
4
Kylie Bax
I'm not a hat person. I really don't like wearing things on my head.
5
Troian Bellisario
I like wearing my dad's sweaters because I knew that he wore them when he held me when I was a baby.
6
Alana Blanchard
It's funny because looking back at my first contest, I was 15 and surfing the Haleiwa contest wearing this tiny bikini. I remember not even thinking twice about wearing it - I just thought it was normal.
7
Thom Browne
If you saw me every day, you would actually think I am wearing the exact same gray suit.
8
Emma Bunton
I don't think I will ever get tired of wearing pink.

Eleanor Catton
There are so many ways of posturing that people associate with being a writer. They imagine you wearing a beret and drinking only red wine and being full of yourself, and so, for a long time, the way I felt about writing was too private.

Rich Cohen
The person who should really write an appreciation of the late great Dom DeLuise is Burt Reynolds, who, even more than Mel Brooks, made of the jolly, beanie wearing fat man a side-kick and a legend.
