When a soldier is hit by a cannonball, rags are as becoming as purple.
      - Henry David Thoreau

Dress changes the manners.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

We sacrifice to dress, till household joys
  And comforts cease. Dress drains our cellar dry,
    And keeps our larder clean; puts out our fires,
      And introduces hunger, frost and woe,
        Where peace and hospitality might reign.
          Dress changes the manners.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

A majority of women seem to consider themselves sent into the world for the sole purpose of displaying dry goods, and it is only when acting the part of an animated milliner's block that they feel they are performing their appropriate mission.
      - Abba Goold Woolson

Women overrate the influence of fine dress and the latest fashions upon gentlemen; and certain it is that the very expensiveness of such attire frightens the beholder from all ideas of matrimony.
      - Abba Goold Woolson

That the women of the Old Testament were dressed with oriental richness there is no doubt, nor are they censured for so arraying themselves.
      - Charlotte Mary Yonge

Gay mellow silks her mellow charms infold, and nought of Lyce but herself is old.
      - Edward Young

Beauty gains little, and homeliness and deformity lose much, by gaudy attire. Lysander knew this was in part true, and refused the rich garments that the tyrant Dionysius proffered to his daughters, saying "that they were fit only to make unhappy faces more remarkable."
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
