#1. I got up the nerve to ask her if she remembered that first visit and my terrible faux pas. She pretended, in true Japanese fashion, that it had never happened. - Author: Katherine Paterson
Japanese Fashion quotes by Katherine Paterson
#2. Prizing elegance, sweet emotions, and fantasy more than morals and truth; wallowing in fleeting romance rather than trying to give meaning to life, when who knows what's going to happen to you anyway; ignoring virtue and conventions to cherish only the pleasures you are definitely experiencing now: this is the Cocoro of Rococo. No matter how much deep thought, hard work, and agonizing effort went into coaxing out some insight, if that insight is boring, or not beautiful, it doesn't matter. And even if something is made just for laughs, if you find it pleasing, it has value. Other people's opinions and labor do not figure into your assessment; choosing things with your own personal sense of "I like this, I don't like that" is the ultimate individualism that sustains the very foundation of Rococo. Rococo, therefore, embodies the spirit of punk rock and anarchism more than any philosophy. Only in Rococo - elegant yet in bad taste, extravagant yet defiant and lawless - can I discover the meaning of life. - Author: Novala Takemoto
Japanese Fashion quotes by Novala Takemoto
#3. Certain dressmakers desire to pass for an artist. I have one ambition: that is to have good taste. - Author: Jean Patou
Japanese Fashion quotes by Jean Patou
#4. To a Boy

Boy,
you are a hidden watering place under the trees
where, as the day darkens, gentle beasts with calm eyes
appear one after another.

Even if the sun drops flaming at the end of the fields where grass stirs greenly
and a wind pregnant with coolness and night-dew agitates your leafy bush,
it is only a premonition.

The tree of solitude that soars with ferocity,
crowned with a swirling night,
still continues in your dark place.

-Translated from the Japanese by Hiroaki Sato - Author: Mutsuo Takahashi
Japanese Fashion quotes by Mutsuo Takahashi
#5. If Nixon is not forced to turn over tapes of his conversations with the ring of men who were conversing on their violations of the law, then liberty will soon be dead in this nation. - Author: Earl Warren
Japanese Fashion quotes by Earl Warren
#6. It's certainly a cliche to remark that a nonfiction book 'reads just like a novel,' but in the case of Jonathan Eig's 'The Birth of the Pill,' I have no other recourse, since his narrative is full of larger-than-life characters sharply limned and embarked on fascinating doings, their story told in sprightly visual fashion. - Author: Paul Di Filippo
Japanese Fashion quotes by Paul Di Filippo
#7. The blue light of the rising moon fell on the rocks and the scant forest of the taiga, revealing each projecting rock, each tree in a peculiar fashion, different from the way they looked by day. Everything seemed real but different than in the daytime. It was as if the world had a second face, a nocturnal face. - Author: Octavio Paz
Japanese Fashion quotes by Octavio Paz
#8. I don't have a huge breakfast, and I sometimes forget to have lunch, so I focus on dinner. I love Thai and Japanese food. - Author: Saffron Aldridge
Japanese Fashion quotes by Saffron Aldridge
#9. There's nothing interesting about looking perfect- you lose the point. You want what you're wearing to say something about you, about who you are. - Author: Emma Watson
Japanese Fashion quotes by Emma Watson
#10. There was a rough stone age and a smooth stone age and a bronze age, and many years afterward a cut-glass age. In the cut-glass age, when young ladies had persuaded young
men with long, curly mustaches to marry them, they sat down several months afterward and wrote thank-you notes for all sorts of cut-glass presents - punch-bowls, finger-bowls, dinner-glasses, wine-glasses, ice-cream dishes, bonbon dishes, decanters, and vases - for, though cut glass was nothing new in the nineties, it was then especially busy reflecting the dazzling light of fashion from the Back Bay to the fastnesses of the Middle West."
--from "The Glass-Cut Bowl" by F. Scott Fitzgerald - Author: Diana Secker Tesdell
Japanese Fashion quotes by Diana Secker Tesdell
#11. Style is very personal. It has nothing to do with fashion. Fashion is over quickly. Style is forever. - Author: Ralph Lauren
Japanese Fashion quotes by Ralph Lauren
#12. The D-Day fortieth-anniversary project awakened my earliest memories. Between the ages of three and five I lived on an Army base in western South Dakota and spent a good deal of my time outdoors in a tiny helmet, shooting stick guns at imaginary German and Japanese soldiers. My father, Red Brokaw, then in his early thirties, was an all-purpose Mr. Fix-It and operator of snow-plows and - Author: Tom Brokaw
Japanese Fashion quotes by Tom Brokaw
#13. As long as you wear clothes you love, which suit your body and your personality, it won't matter if you're wearing a dress that was in vogue five years ago; you'll still look amazing. Also, somebody has to START new trends, and that somebody could be you. - Author: Rosie Blythe
Japanese Fashion quotes by Rosie Blythe
#14. Working in Hollywood, it's clear the more money you have, the more technology you can get. So you can build a whole Japanese set. Only in Hollywood! - Author: Ziyi Zhang
Japanese Fashion quotes by Ziyi Zhang
#15. Let us be today's Christians. Let us not take fright at the boldness of today's church. With Christ's light let us illuminate even the most hideous caverns of the human person: torture, jail, plunder, want, chronic illness. The oppressed must be saved, not with a revolutionary salvation, in mere human fashion, but with the holy revolution of the Son of Man, who dies on the cross to cleanse God's image, which is soiled in today's humanity, a humanity so enslaved, so selfish, so sinful. - Author: Oscar A. Romero
Japanese Fashion quotes by Oscar A. Romero
#16. If you are the type who truly longs to be a Southern Belle at all times, regardless of taking twice the space available in bus, subway or elsewhere, you had best remove yourself to a large estate replete with servants. - Author: Elizabeth Hawes
Japanese Fashion quotes by Elizabeth Hawes
#17. DEINOTHERIUM, n. An extinct pachyderm that flourished when the Pterodactyl was in fashion. The latter was a native of Ireland, its name being pronounced Terry Dactyl or Peter O'Dactyl, as the man pronouncing it may chance to have heard it spoken or seen it printed. - Author: Ambrose Bierce
Japanese Fashion quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#18. Whoever we may be, whatever our immediate interest, however much we carry baggage from our past, however much we have been caught by the fashion of cynicism and loss of faith in the capacity of the people, let us err today and say - nothing can stop us now! - Author: Thabo Mbeki
Japanese Fashion quotes by Thabo Mbeki
#19. A famous Japanese Zen master, Hakuun Yasutani Roshi, said that unless you can explain Zen in words that a fisherman will comprehend, you don't know what you're talking about. Some fifty years ago a UCLA professor told me the same thing about applied mathematics. We like to hide from the truth behind foreign-sounding words or mathematical lingo. There's a saying: The truth is always encountered but rarely perceived. If we don't perceive it, we can't help ourselves and we can't much help anyone else. - Author: Jeff Bridges
Japanese Fashion quotes by Jeff Bridges
#20. The 'tail' of a comet, by the way, is a train of dust, but it is not streaming out behind the head of the comet as we might think. Instead, it is 'blown' by a stream of particles coming from the sun, which we call the solar wind. So the tail of the comet always points away from the sun, no matter which way the comet is travelling. There's an exciting proposal, once confined to science fiction stories but now being implemented by Japanese space engineers, to use the solar wind to propel spacecraft equipped with gigantic 'sails'. Like sailing yachts on the sea using real wind, solar wind space-yachts would theoretically provide a very economical way to travel to distant worlds. - Author: Richard Dawkins
Japanese Fashion quotes by Richard Dawkins
#21. The pure modernist is merely a snob; he cannot bear to be a month behind the fashion. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Japanese Fashion quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#22. Follow the fashion but don't lose your identity. - Author: Shikha Kaul
Japanese Fashion quotes by Shikha Kaul

Japanese Fashion quotes by Sarah Lafleur

Japanese Fashion quotes by Carolina Herrera
#25. The worst fashion faux pas is looking in the mirror and seeing somebody else. - Author: Iris Apfel
Japanese Fashion quotes by Iris Apfel
#26. I've had a great experience in the fashion business. - Author: Andie MacDowell
Japanese Fashion quotes by Andie MacDowell
#27. ENJOY LIFE! Can't go wrong with that motto, I think.

No matter what activity one engages in, from the simple to the complex, from the mundane to the exciting, it is very worthwhile to keep a non-judgmental mindset.

Enjoy every experience for what it is - do not compare it to prior experiences, nor set it up against your expectations, or the expectations of others.

In this fashion, no matter what experience unfolds, it will be appreciated.

The key as a parent is to encourage your offspring to adopt a like mindset. As well, as a parent, do not concern yourself whether your child is getting "full-value" for your money. - Author: Rob Kozak
Japanese Fashion quotes by Rob Kozak
#28. If a man does not die of a wound, then it heals in some fashion, and so it is with loss. From the sharp pain of immediate berevement, both the Prince and I passed into the gray days of numb bewilderment and waiting. So grief has always seemed to me, a time of waiting not for the hurt to pass, but to become accustomed to it. - Author: Robin Hobb
Japanese Fashion quotes by Robin Hobb
#29. Fashion is not enough anymore. It's not just about what you wear. I mean, I don't know how many women can afford to take the time to come to Paris for three fittings. - Author: Alber Elbaz
Japanese Fashion quotes by Alber Elbaz
#30. In the ashes on the hearth Saigyo traced and retraced the word, "pity." He had yet to learn to accept life with all its good and evils, to love life in all its manifestations by becoming one with nature. And for this he had abandoned home, wife, and child in that city of conflict. He had fled to save his own life, not for any grandiose dream of redeeming mankind; neither had he taken vows with the thoughts of chanting sutras to Buddha; nor did he aspire to brocaded ranks of the high prelates. Only by surrendering to nature could he best cherish his own life, learn how man should live, and therein find peace. And if any priest accused him of taking the vows out of self-love, not to purify the world and bring salvation to men, Saigyo was ready to admit that these charges were true and that he deserved to be reviled and spat upon as a false priest. Yet, if driven to answer for himself, he was prepared to declare that he who had not learned to love his own life could not love mankind, and that what he sought now was to love that life which was his. Gifts he had none to preach salvation or the precepts of Buddha; all that he asked was to be left to exist as humbly as the butterflies and the birds. - Author: Eiji Yoshikawa
Japanese Fashion quotes by Eiji Yoshikawa
#31. Fashion is in the sky, the streets, fashion has to do with ideas, the way in which we live, the events surrounding us. - Author: Coco Chanel
Japanese Fashion quotes by Coco Chanel
#32. High heels were invented by a woman who had been kissed on the forehead. - Author: Christopher Morley
