Turtleneck quotes by Elizabeth Wurtzel
#2. The moment in The Bell Jar when Esther Greenwood realizes after thirty days in the same black turtleneck that she never wants to wash her hair again, that the repeated necessity of the act is too much trouble, that she wants to do it once and be done with it, seems like the book's true epiphany. You know you've completely descended into madness when the matter of shampoo has ascended into philosophical heights. #Quote by Elizabeth Wurtzel
Turtleneck quotes by Melissa Jensen
#3. I started to turn toward the closest bus stop. Alex turned the other way. "Suivez-moi," he commanded. So I followed. "Bon.Je pensais que nous irions-"
He stopped. "Ella."

"Mais, c'est tres important."
"Please.I know you do this with other linguistic losers, but it makes me feel like I should have a great big L lipsticked onto my forehead in some swirly French calligraphy."
"Do you often contemplate decorating yourself in such a manner?"
I took a quick look down.I was wearing Sienna's turtleneck again, but my own jeans. There was a large blue sea horse from the art museum fountain running from my knee to the crease of my thigh. "Yeah," I admitted. "I do."
"Quelle horreur!" he declared, eyes round in mock distress.
He let out a bark of laughter that sounded just like a seal. "Tres bien, Mademoiselle Marino. Got any more?"
"A couple.Frankie gave me a copy of How to Offend the French when I managed to get a B in 1B last year."
"Well,I never trade insults on a first date. Not that kinda guy. But after two or three..."
I liked that he'd said "date," instead of "tutoring session." Even if it wasn't and he totally didn't mean it. I couldn't help it. #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Turtleneck quotes by Pierre Niney

Turtleneck quotes by Harlan Coben
#5. He reached for the door handle. Fear nestled into his throat, but he did not stop. He pulled the handle, opened the door, and stepped out. It was dark. The streetlights in Soho were nearly worthless, like pen beams in a black hole. Lights drifting out from nearby windows provided more of an eerie kindle than real illumination. There were plastic garbage bags out on the street. Most had been torn open; the odor of spoiled food wafted through the air. The van slowly cruised toward him. A man stepped out from a doorway and approached without hesitation. The man wore a black turtleneck under a black overcoat. He pointed a gun at Myron. The van stopped, and the side door slid open. "Get in, asshole," the man with the gun said. Myron pointed at himself. "You talking to me?" "Now, asshole. Haul ass." "Is that a turtleneck or a dickey?" The man with the gun moved closer. "I said, now. #Quote by Harlan Coben
Turtleneck quotes by Iman Abdulmajid
#6. As a young girl, I was much more preoccupied by my flaws. Everyone teased me because of my long, skinny neck. To hide my so-called deformity, I was wearing a turtleneck when I was 3! Yet my neck is probably my best asset. At the end of the day, what counts is the entire package. #Quote by Iman Abdulmajid
Turtleneck quotes by Vonnie Davis
#7. The little woman, wearing a pink and black zigzag-striped pantsuit over a black turtleneck, resembled a skinny zebra who'd OD'd on Pepto-Bismol. #Quote by Vonnie Davis
Turtleneck quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#8. Furthermore, as is the case with so many of the younger literati, he dresses like a tramp cyclist, affecting turtleneck sweaters and grey flannel bags with a patch on the knee and conveying a sort of general suggestion of having been left out in the rain overnight in an ash can. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Turtleneck quotes by Florence King
#9. My consultants recommended several nihilists and existentialists but I rejected them all. A black turtleneck sweater does not a misanthrope make. Nihilists and existentialists tend to be bohemians, who invariably run in packs; despite their alienated stance, they have always struck me as a sociable lot who surround themselves with people because they are forever saying "Nothing matters," and they need someone to say it to. #Quote by Florence King
Turtleneck quotes by Helena Hunting
#10. It lays on his abdomen, angled slightly to the left. It's almost cute-kind of like Snuffleupagus. Well, not really. It's huge, but not hairy, and also not nearly as daunting as when it's hard. It is magical, though. I stifle a giggle because, goddamn it, I've never seen a snuffie up close. The head is tucked up inside the soft skin, an eye peering out from the turtleneck. #Quote by Helena Hunting
Turtleneck quotes by Melissa Jensen
#11. I hadn't wanted to explain the lipstick. Or the mascara. Or the skinny jeans I'd snagged from Sienna's laundrey and washed under cover of darkness and paired with a black turtleneck that a jaunt through the dryer had made, to ne honest, a size too small. But this news about the Willing Archive trumped all of that.
He gave me a careful once-over. "Well."
I sat down next to him, aiming for casual. I should have aimed my butt. I sat on his geometry book. "Well what?"
"Don't even.The day you become a good liar is the day I leave you for one of the Hannandas."
"I have an appointment at the Willing Archive."
I will say this for Frankie: He pays attention. "The utterly-off-limits, place-to-bury-your-face-in-Edward's-old-knickers archive?"
"Nice.But yes,that one.Mrs. Evers got me in."
"About time someone did." He bumped a shoulder against mine. "I really do hate to burst your bubble, Fiorella, but Edward is a century past appreciating the sight of you in tight jeans. So tell me whassup."
I squirmed a little.
"What sort of idiot do you think I am?" He sighed. "You look good, but I am concerned about the inspiration."
"It's not a big deal. It's some makeup."
"When I want a boy to look ta me, it's a day that ends in y. You, it's something else. It's a big deal. #Quote by Melissa Jensen

Turtleneck quotes by Tina Fey
#14. People sat in small groups, talking about the other small groups that were just out of earshot. My ex and the dancer made a brief appearance, but I held my head high. I was wearing my best Gap turtleneck and my dates were two adult lesbians, so yeah, I was pretty cool. #Quote by Tina Fey
Turtleneck quotes by Neil Strauss
#15. Marko looked as if he could use a makeover himself. A big-boned six foot three, he was much stockier than most Serbians, with an olive complexion and the out-of-proportion head of a Peanuts character. He wore an overcoat that was one size too big, a thick gray Brooks Brothers sweater with flecks of white, and a cream-colored turtleneck that actually made him look like a turtle. Marko #Quote by Neil Strauss
Turtleneck quotes by Tina Fey
#16. I was wearing my best Gap turtleneck and my dates were two adult lesbians, so yea, I was pretty cool. #Quote by Tina Fey

Turtleneck quotes by J.R. Ward
#19. You are so beautiful," he said as he stared at her, "standing there in the light like that."
She glanced at her Gap black pants and her two-year-old knit turtleneck. "You must be blind."
"Why?" he asked, coming over to her.
"Well, I feel like such an ass for saying this." She smoothed the front of her off-the-rack-and-then-some slacks. "But I wish I had better clothes. Then I'd be beautiful."
Rehvenge paused.
And then shocked the crap out of her by kneeling before her.
As he looked up, he had a slight smile on his lips. "Don't you get it, Ehlena." With gentle hands, he stroked down her calf and brought her foot forward, balancing it on his thigh. As he undid the laces on her cheapo Keds sneaker, he whispered, "No matter what you wear…to me, you will always have diamonds on the soles of your shoes."

-Rehv & Ehlena #Quote by J.R. Ward

Turtleneck quotes by David Wong
#24. Falconer was wearing his street clothes - jeans, a black turtleneck and an empty shoulder holster under his armpit. Cowboy boots. Little bit of beard stubble. John wondered if the guy would walk from one end of the street to the other without winding up covered in bitches. #Quote by David Wong
Turtleneck quotes by Emo Philips
#25. In college I was one of six males who auditioned for five male roles in a comedy play. I was the one rejected. At that moment I made up my mind never to place myself at the mercy of some pompous, goateed, black-turtleneck-shirted "should I yay him or nay him?" pantywaist ever again. #Quote by Emo Philips

Turtleneck quotes by Katie Delahanty
#28. Honey, were you trying to be a 1950s beatnik from Funny Face or something?" He guesses, correctly. "It is one thing to channel your inner Audrey Hepburn, but it is quite another to wear a mock turtleneck and capris to a Hollywood event. This is the big time, sweetheart; you best check your costume at the door. #Quote by Katie Delahanty
Turtleneck quotes by Kim Addonizio
#29. Intimacy

The woman in the cafe making my cappuccino - dark eyes, dyed
red hair,
sleeveless black turtleneck - used to be lovers with the man I'm
seeing now.
She doesn't know me; we're strangers, but still I can't glance at her
casually, as I used to, before I knew. She stands at the machine,
sinking the nozzle
into a froth of milk, staring at nothing - I don't know what she's
For all I know she might be remembering my lover, remembering
whatever happened
between them - he's never told me, except to say that it wasn't
important, and then
he changed the subject quickly, too quickly now that I think about
it; might he,
after all, have been lying, didn't an expression of pain cross his
face for just
and instant? I can't be sure. And really it was nothing, I tell myself;
there's no reason for me to feel awkward standing here, or
as though there's something significant between us.
She could be thinking of anything; why, now, do I have the sudden
that she knows, that she feels me studying her, trying to imagine
them together? -
her lipstick's dark red, darker than her hair - trying to see him
kissing her, turning her over in bed
the way he likes to have me. I wonder if maybe
there were things about her he preferred, things he misses now
that we're together;
sometim #Quote by Kim Addonizio
Turtleneck quotes by Janet Evanovich
#30. To celebrate our partnership I dressed up like Ranger. Black boots, black jeans, black turtleneck, small silver hoop earrings.
He gave me the once-over when I opened the door to him.
'Smart ass,' he said. #Quote by Janet Evanovich

Turtleneck quotes by Melissa Jensen
#32. Will that be cash or charge?" he asked.
I looked down at my hands. I was still holding the stripy turtleneck. "Cash, I guess." Beside me, Frankie gave a smug little grunt. "We can live without you, I know," I told him.
"Of course you can. But why would you? I am here for youse, Marino, forevah and evah. #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Turtleneck quotes by J.D. Robb
#33. Great sweater, by the way. Cashmere?" Baffled, Eve looked down at her navy turtleneck. "I don't know. It's blue. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Turtleneck quotes by Melissa Jensen
#34. I might have stood there for a long time, hand halfway up like a religious statue,if Frankie hadn't gently pulled it down and held on.
He stood behind me, vibrating with anger. "That is not an honorable man, Fiorella."
Without thinking, I lifted my free hand toward my neck.But I was wearing a turtleneck and my hair was down. There was nothing to see,and all my fingertips found was the rigid peak under my jaw.
"Don't do that," Frankie hissed. "Don't you dare. It's not the scar and it's abso-freakin-lutely not you."
I dropped my hand. "Yeah,right." I sagged against him a little. For being skinny as he is, Frankie's really solid. "It's never me."
I felt his sigh against my shoulder blades. "We are young; heartache to heartache we stand."
"Let me guess," I said. "Old Korean proverb."
"As if.Pat Benatar. 'Love is a Battlefield.'"
I laughed.I had a feeling I might cry, but not there and then. "Thanks."
"Don't mention it." Frankie wrapped his free arm around me so my chin rested on his forearm. "Enough,right? That was enough of Alex Bainbridge-for all of us. Promise?"
"Yeah.Promise? #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Turtleneck quotes by Adrienne Bailon
#35. I honestly really, really love Topshop. I've bought a lot of booties from there. I think they have a great selection of really funky booties at Topshop. My splurge would be a pair of leather Christian Louboutin over-the-knee boots. They're sick! I would do a really stretchy skinny jean under a black turtleneck and call it a day! #Quote by Adrienne Bailon
Turtleneck quotes by Steve Martin
#36. I love money. I love everything about it. I bought some pretty good stuff. Got me a $300 pair of socks. Got a fur sink. An electric dog polisher. A gasoline powered turtleneck sweater. And, of course, I bought some dumb stuff, too. #Quote by Steve Martin
Turtleneck quotes by Shailene Woodley
#37. I feel like a turtleneck dress that's long-sleeved and covers your entire body but is tight fitting is so much sexier than boobs spilling out, you know? So I guess I'm more into being classy sexy versus apparent sexy. #Quote by Shailene Woodley
Turtleneck quotes by Ilona Andrews
#38. No, I promised him I wouldn't fight a giant." "So you obey the letter of the law and not the spirit," she said. "Yes." My teeth finally stopped chattering. I loved my turtleneck. I loved my jacket. I loved my boots. Mmm, wonderful warm boots. "How come when I do that, you chew me out?" "Because you don't do it well enough to get away with it." Julie blinked. "What kind of move was that, at the end?" "It's from Escrima, a Filipino martial art. I'll show you when we get a minute, but you will have to practice, because it has to be done really fast for it to work. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
