Dupriest Antiques quotes by E. Lockhart
#1. Antiques and Oriental rugs tell people that my mother may be a dog breeder who dropped out of Bryn Mawr, but she's got power - because she's got money. #Quote by E. Lockhart
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Malcolm Cowley
#2. A man rising in the world is not concerned with history; he is too busy making it. But a citizen with a fixed place in the community wants to acquire a glorious past just as he acquires antique furniture. By that past he is reassured of his present importance; in it he finds strength to face the dangers that lie in front of him. #Quote by Malcolm Cowley
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Nate Berkus
#3. It's my job to know what's available from every retailer, catalog, website, antiques mall, and craftsperson. A good designer or decorator has to have an almost encyclopedic knowledge. #Quote by Nate Berkus
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Nicole Krauss
#4. These valuable thing produced in us a feeling of intimidation. We knew that no matter how far we got in life, we would never really be meant for such fineness, that the few expensive antiques we did have had fallen to us from a higher life and now condescended to live among us. #Quote by Nicole Krauss
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Jonathan Gash
#5. Every inch of space was used. As the road narrowed, signs receded upwards and changed to the vertical. Businesses simply soared from ground level and hung out vaster, more fascinatingly illuminated shingles than competitors. We were still in a traffic tangle, but now the road curved. Shops crowded the pavements and became homelier. Vegetables, spices, grocery produce in boxes or hanging from shop lintels, meats adangle - as always, my ultimate ghastliness - and here and there among the crowds the alarming spectacle of an armed Sikh, shotgun aslant, casually sitting at a bank entrance. And markets everywhere. To the right, cramped streets sloped down to the harbor. To the left, as we meandered along the tramlines through sudden dense markets of hawkers' barrows, the streets turned abruptly into flights of steps careering upwards into a bluish mist of domestic smoke, clouds of washing on poles, and climbing. Hong Kong had the knack of building where others wouldn't dare. #Quote by Jonathan Gash
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Tom Hoover
#6. Japanese would never 'restore' an antique. The signs of age and wear are to them its most beautiful qualities. #Quote by Tom Hoover
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Ellen Read
#7. The spicy sweet fragrance of the large full blooms, which rambled over the side and top of an arched metal framework, welcomed them as they walked beneath them. Shafts of sunlight pierced the canopy, dust motes floating languorously in the golden beams that spotlighted clumps of wayward snowdrops growing in the lawn. #Quote by Ellen Read
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Tina Fey
#8. Whenever you see me, I'm on antique quaaludes. #Quote by Tina Fey
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Kathleen Robertson
#9. I'm really into antiques. But really into it because of my father, who got me into them in the first place. He's an interior designer and he's really into going to antique shows and getting up really early on Sundays and driving out to these weird little towns north of Hamilton. #Quote by Kathleen Robertson
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Abigail Roux
#10. She turned and looked at Deuce, giving him a helpless gesture. "What the hell is going on?" "Livi, you remember my brother, Ty. This is his partner, Zane Garrett."
"Hi," Zane offered in a low voice that sent a shiver up Ty's spine.
"And these are their… friends, Julian and Cameron," Deuce said as he waved at the other two men.
"Nice to meet you," Cameron mumbled. She greeted them each, overwhelmed by the surprise, then looked at the doorknob and the string of straws, shaking her head.
"What is all this?"
"It was a security measure. We're running from the CIA," Ty told her, not even attempting to spare her. "They're trying to kill us."
"Well, kill him, specifically," Zane added as he pointed at Julian.
"I sell antiques," Julian said, monotone.
She narrowed her eyes, looking amongst them and then at Deuce.
"Is this some sort of boys' weekend that I'm not supposed to intrude on? Because I can totally leave before they hurt themselves trying to lie convincingly."
Deuce gave her a warm smile and shook his head. "I think the only one lying is him," he said, pointing at Julian. #Quote by Abigail Roux
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Mimi Sheraton
#11. Swirls of antique stained glass, blazes of brass, forests of carved wood and waterfalls of crystal combine to make up the city's most fabulously festive interior. #Quote by Mimi Sheraton
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Bonnie Tyler
#12. I collect traditional Aubusson tapestries that you can hang on a wall. The last lot I bought were from an antiques fair in London. #Quote by Bonnie Tyler
Dupriest Antiques quotes by H.L. Mencken
#13. All the benefit that a New Yorker gets out of Kansas is no more than what he might get out of Saskatchewan, the Argentine pampas, of Siberia. But New York to a Kansan is not only a place where he may get drunk, look at dirty shows and buy bogus antiques; it is also a place where he may enforce his dunghill ideas upon his betters. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Dupriest Antiques quotes by K. Ford K.
#14. She [Bernice] didn't like anything that had an adult theme, with only one exception, her collection of erotic female memorabilia. They were all antiques, fragments of other women's sexuality that was somehow easier to deal with than her own. #Quote by K. Ford K.
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Nora Roberts
#15. [She] knew there were women who worked successfully out of the home. They ran businesses, created empires and managed to raise happy, healthy, well-adjusted children who went on to graduate magna cum laude from Harvard or became world-renowned concert pianists. Possibly both.
These women accomplished all this while cooking gourmet meals, furnishing their homes with Italian antiques, giving clever, intelligent interviews with Money magazine and People, and maintaining a brilliant marriage with an active enviable sex life and never tipping the scale at an ounce over their ideal weight ...
She knew those women were out there. If she'd had a gun, she'd have hunted every last one of them down and shot them like rabid dogs for the good of womankind. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Pankaj Mishra
#16. I am a secularist in the Gandhian sense of the word, not the Nehruvian one. Nehru thought religion was an antique superstition which stood in the way of rational modern politics. I side with Gandhi, who wanted religious figures out of politics but also was suspicious of purely rational politics. #Quote by Pankaj Mishra
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Joseph Fink
#17. The antiques in the window were especially cute, wrestling with each other and playfully snapping at each other's tails. #Quote by Joseph Fink
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Ursula Andress
#18. Even if you have $20,000 to buy an item, you still try to get a good price at antique stores. I collect furniture, rugs, paintings, frames. It's my hobby to go around to shops and markets. #Quote by Ursula Andress
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#19. The subliminal depths of radio are charged with the resonating echoes of tribal horns and antique drums. This is inherent in the very nature of this medium, with its power to turn the
psyche and society into a single echo chamber. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Pope Francis
#20. This is precisely the reason for the dissatisfaction of some, who end up sad - sad priests - in some sense becoming collectors of antiques or novelties, instead of being shepherds living with 'the odor of the sheep.' This I ask you: Be shepherds, with the 'odor of the sheep,' make it real, as shepherds among your flock, fishers of men. #Quote by Pope Francis
Dupriest Antiques quotes by John Milton
#21. But let my due feet never fail To walk the studious cloisters pale, And love the high embowed roof, With antique pillars massy proof, And storied windows richly dight; Casting a dim religious light. #Quote by John Milton
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Kenneth Clark
#22. Antique art has come down to us in a fragmentary condition, and we have virtuously adapted our taste to this necessity. Almost all our favorite specimens of Greek sculpture, from the sixth century onward, were originally parts of compositions, and if we were faced with the complete group in which the Charioteer of Delphi was once a subsidiary figure, we might well experience a moment of revulsion. We have come to think of the fragment as more vivid, more concentrated, and more authentic. #Quote by Kenneth Clark
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Howard Mansfield
#23. We may talk of saving antique linens, species, or languages; but whatever we are intent on saving, when a restoration succeeds, we rescue ourselves. #Quote by Howard Mansfield
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Mark Shand
#24. My flat is a bit like an oriental bazaar. It's filled with the oddest objects from all my travels, and you can't really move in it. I love collecting antiques and often spend weekends driving around bric-a-brac markets. #Quote by Mark Shand
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Martha Plimpton
#25. I like cluttered, old, dark-wood antiques. I like character. #Quote by Martha Plimpton
Dupriest Antiques quotes by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
#26. Remember that the most valuable antiques are dear old friends. #Quote by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Thorstein Veblen
#27. The superior excellence imputed to the book, which imitates the products of antique and obsolete processes, is conceived to be chiefly a superior utility in the aesthetic respect; but it is not unusual to find a well-bred book-lover insisting that the clumsier product is also more serviceable as a vehicle of printed speech. #Quote by Thorstein Veblen
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Jonathan Gash
#28. The Theory of Sexual Understanding is mine. I created it. It works between a man and a woman. It's this: Everything's up to her. #Quote by Jonathan Gash
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Lindsey Wixson
#29. I love hats! I collect vintage ones - I find them at antique shops in Kansas. #Quote by Lindsey Wixson
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Ted Hughes
#30. You could become internationally famous - you're Gemini, and according to antique authority have a literary talent, which of course your letters prove. #Quote by Ted Hughes
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Abigail Roux
#31. Grady and Preston were both after the same mark in Paris a few years ago," Julian said to
Zane. "They met during what I hear was a drunken, debauched night of ... selling antiques. That's how
I knew Ty had been there. I never saw him."
"Such unnecessary details," Preston murmured.
"Ty, seriously," Zane grunted.
"How is this my fault?" Ty asked in exasperation.
"Do you have a history with every guy with a gun in the Northern hemisphere?"
"Oh, like you don't have some winners back there you hope we never run into. Let's head to
Miami and see what comes out of the woodwork."
"I like guys with guns!"
"Oh my God," Julian muttered as he rubbed at his eyes. #Quote by Abigail Roux
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Sarah Jio
#32. I wanted to take a photo of his face just then. That boyish grin. That look of love, of contentedness. Couldn't he see? We didn't need children to complete us. We were already complete. I had my flowers and plants, and he had his writing. Wasn't that enough? Didn't he love the ebb and flow of our life together just as it was? The way I'd race home for dinner with a basket brimming with vegetables from the market or a handful of herbs from a garden project, eager to read the pages he'd written that day. Didn't he love, as I did, the quiet mornings we spent in our garden, sipping espresso and discussing our latest venture to a flea market in Queens or an antiques shop in Connecticut? Once we carted an enormous painted dresser to a taping of 'Antiques Roadshow' only to find that the piece was made in China. I grinned at the memory. #Quote by Sarah Jio
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Jonathan Gash
#33. The risks in antiques fraud are relative. Other criminals risk the absolute. You've never heard of a fraudster involved in a shoot-out, of the "Come and get me, copper!" sort. Or of some con artist needing helicopter gunships to bring him. No, we subtle-mongers do it with the smile, the promise, the hint. And we have one great ally: greed. And make no mistake. Greed is everywhere, like weather. #Quote by Jonathan Gash
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Thomas Hardy
#34. The yard was a little centre of regeneration. Here, with keen edges and smooth curves, were forms in the exact likeness of those he had seen abraded and time-eaten on the walls. These were the ideas in modern prose which the lichened colleges presented in old poetry. Even some of those antiques might have been called prose when they were new. They had done nothing but wait, and had become poetical. How easy to the smallest building; how impossible to most men. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Theo Rossi
#35. I jog at the Rose Bowl, and I collect antique and vintage furniture, so I'm there every few weeks for the flea market. #Quote by Theo Rossi
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Atticus Shaffer
#36. I've always been homeschooled, so doing it on set is kind of the same thing. My mom makes it very interactive - we'll get a book on chocolate and learn how to make it, or she will buy antique items. I love military history, the mechanics and strategy of it. #Quote by Atticus Shaffer
Dupriest Antiques quotes by William Robertson Smith
#37. In all the antique religions, mythology takes the place of dogma; that is, the sacred lore of priests and people ... and these stories afford the only explanation that is offered of the precepts of religion and the prescribed rules of ritual. #Quote by William Robertson Smith
Dupriest Antiques quotes by Jane Cleland
#38. Actually, the first thing I do is choose the antique that will be featured in each book. I try to find unusual objects with great stories. I am fascinated by the stories. #Quote by Jane Cleland
