Quotes About Salad Dressings

Yes, I told her, those are all of our dressings. Dont you have any other dressings? he says. I mean, what the hell? What does she think? That Im holding out? I was tempted to say, "No, we actually have an entirely different assortment of dressings that I dont tell people about the first time they ask, because they dont deserve these great secret dressings.

Quotes About Beauty Salons

"First, we think all truth is beautiful, no matter how hideous its face may seem. We accept all of nature, without any repudiation. We believe there is more beauty in a harsh truth than in a pretty lie, more poetry in earthiness than in all the salons of Paris. We think pain is good because it is the most profound of all human feelings. We think sex is beautiful even when portrayed by a harlot and a pimp. We put character above ugliness, pain above prettiness and hard, crude reality above all the wealth in France. We accept life in its entirety without making moral judgments. We think the prostitute is as good as the countess, the concierge as good as the general, the peasant as good as the cabinet minister, for they all fit into the pattern of nature and are woven into the design of life!" - Author: Irving Stone
