Our bodies are temples of the Lord. We should earn respect and admiration for our hearts, not for showing skin to look sexy.
Carrie Prejean
She kissed me on the mouth. Her mouth tasted like iced coffee and cardamom, and I was overwhelmed by the taste, her hot skin and the smell of unwashed hair. I was confused, but not unwilling. I would have let her do anything to me.
Janet Fitch
I know that having the perfect body doesn’t fix all your problems, or make you love yourself more. To me, it’s all about being comfortable in your own skin.
America Ferrera
When I was 10 years old, we’d pick out a cow and boom! They’d hit it in the head with a hammer, lift it up by the back legs, and skin it in front of us. Then I’d take the head home and make soup
Wilmer Valderrama
The yellowfly is almost too small to see, but if you leave its egg in your skin, you will lose an arm or leg before it hatches – if it does not kill you.
Robert Jordan
To me there’s very few actresses who’ve had twenty years experience who have that cyberpunk aesthetic already baked in. Scarlett Johansson comes from such edgy films from Lost in Translation to Under the Skin – she’s got an incredible body of work and the attitude and the toughness of her really is to me, the Major.
Rupert Sanders
To put to rest any doubts you might have… I’m jealous of every man who comes within ten feet of you. I’m jealous of the clothes on your skin and the air you breathe. I’m jealous of every moment you spend out of my sight
Lisa Kleypas
I went to Brazil in 2010 and pretty much did songs about that trip. I was there just to hang out, chill with the people, and feel the vibe. It was great – tons of great women, great skin, good beaches. Cant complain; the food is great.
Theophilus London
The Bishop has a skin, God knows,
Wrinkled like the foot of a goose,
(All find safety in the tomb.)
Nor can he hide in holy black
The heron’s hunch upon his back,
But a birch-tree stood my Jack.
William Butler Yeats
The life of a dancer is not for everyone. You really have to have some thick skin. You really have to know what you’re going into and how competitive the field is.
Stephen Boss
While we appreciate our ancestry as Americans or even our ethnic ancestry and our color of skin, we believe that our real citizenship is in Heaven.
Max Lucado
The proprietor had hair so red that pigmentation had flowed out into every visible inch of his skin and even into the pinks of his eyes, as the colour of flowering cherry trees stains their leaves.
Quentin Crisp
I can not, and will not judge, by what my eyes may see. For the skin on a man shall not reveal his true identity.
Robert M. Hensel
Two people who I think have the world’s most perfect skin are Cate Blanchett and Kate Bosworth. Maybe there’s something to being named Kate, I don’t know, but those two just seem to be effortless, yet completely, ethereally gorgeous.
Sophia Bush
We have received a dog with serious eye problems and a skin disease in hopeless stage. The person who brought it here demanded we cure it for free and refused the idea of euthanasia to end its pain.
Min Zhou
The function of the prosecutor under the federal Constitution is not to tack as many skins of victims as possible against the wall. His function is to vindicate the rights of the people as expressed in the laws and give those accused of crime a fair trial.
William O. Douglas
When you a darker brunette and have pale skin like I do, it can wash you out a bit, so learning to contour is really helpful. I think you can be a bit more bold with eye makeup to define your eyes, and the same with lip colors – you can go for dark wine colors, which I love.
Olivia Wilde
I think the notion that we are different just because of skin color, and that we should be kept apart or kept from interbreeding, is very hurtful.
David Oyelowo
Law has no skin, reason has no nostrils.
Jose Rizal
As a Test cricketer you expect that at times you’re going to be heckled, and you must have a thick skin.
Brett Lee
The authority of any governing institution must stop at its citizen’s skin.
Gloria Steinem
I feel comfortable in my skin. … I used to run around my house naked when I was 13.
Britney Spears
I had gone away from Twitter because before people had been so mean to me. Talking about my lisp and my enormous forehead and all these things. I do have a lisp, I do have a forehead I know you could land a plane on, it’s no mystery to me. I just didn’t have the skin for it.
Sarah Paulson
I was never comfortable because I was always trying to wear what was trendy, but it never felt right on my body or in my skin. It felt wrong. I was finally like, hey, fashion and style can be just about self-expresession, about what makes you feel stylish.
Ariana Grande
Every woman in public life needs to develop skin as tough as rhinoceros hide.
Eleanor Roosevelt
Azazello begged her not to worry, assuring her that he had seen not only naked women but also women with their skin flayed clean off
Mikhail Bulgakov
With skin, I really believe it has a lot to do with your genes. And I’ve been really lucky.
Nina Agdal
Folks want to glow, to leave their worries and dead skin behind.
Terry McMillan
One of the great functions of art is to help us imagine what it is like to be not ourselves, what it is like to be someone or something else, what it is like to live in another skin, what it is like to live in another body, and in that sense to surpass ourselves, to go out beyond ourselves.
Adrienne Rich
Once somebody’s aware of a plot, it’s like a bone sticking out. If it breaks through the skin, it’s very ugly.
Louis Auchincloss
I know what I am fighting for. I am fighting for the most basic rights of innocent children. And that is why I never take the criticism too deep under my skin.
Waris Dirie
If the skin were parchment and the blows you gave were ink, Your own handwriting would tell you what I think.
William Shakespeare
I peeled the skin off a grape in slippery little triangles, and I understood then that I would be undressing every item of food I could because my clothes would be staying on.
Aimee Bender
Among the old Norse, it was the custom for certain warriors to dress in the skins of the beasts they had slain, and thus to give themselves an air of ferocity, calculated to strike terror into the hearts of their foes.
Sabine Baring-Gould
I hate a man who skins the land.
Theodore Roosevelt
There are two things in life that I really wanted to do: be an actress, and to be in skin care, and I’ve gotten to do both of them.
Victoria Principal
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
He smelt of the sun, as if it had seeped deep into his skin, and I found myself inhaling silently, as if he were something delicious.
Jojo Moyes
The hardened mass of liquid stones had much stronger qualities than those which had simply torn. The skin remained a recognisable part of the molten stone.
Andy Goldsworthy
The skin is no more separated from the brain than the surface of a lake is separate from its depths; the two are different locations in a continuous medium…The brain is a single functional unit, from cortex to fingertips to toes. To touch the surface is to stir the depths.
Deane Juhan
Horrible dates are when you’re with people who are immature and can’t really be comfortable in their own skin.
James Mercer
The saying that beauty is but skin deep, is but a skin-deep saying.
Herbert Spencer
The Ethiopian cannot change his skin nor the leopard his spots.
Henry David Thoreau
Her skin is pale as watermelon sucked free of its juices.
Jaclyn Moriarty
What of the old serpent who cannot shed his skin, and calls all others naked and shameless?
Khalil Gibran
I can’t get into all that physical stuff of having to have flawless skin… Sometimes you see people and it looks like someone’s got an eraser and made their face a little blurry – their traits seem to go out of focus.
Kristin Scott Thomas
I’ve always thrown myself into different kinds of experiences, sometimes into really bad things. But, you grow up. You become more of a woman and you know yourself. I think knowing yourself is a wonderful thing especially when you’re in your 40s and you’re kind of in your skin. Life is not so confusing anymore.
Lisa Edelstein
I think what makes someone pretty amazing is being comfortable in your own skin.
Brendan Dooling
I have tried all my life to look after my skin, so I never do things like go to bed with make-up on. I also always use moisturisers. But I certainly do not believe in Botox or anything like that. The thought of it just makes me think ‘urgh’.
Delia Smith
The color of a person’s skin had nothing to do with the content of their character.
Michael Jackson
I’d rather bare skin than wear skin.
Pamela Anderson
There is a sensuality about fabric. I think all materials should be inviting when they touch the skin. When I watch children stroking their mothers clothes, I feel that I have succeeded.
Azzedine Alaia
I want to get comfortable with my insecurities until I am no longer insecure. I want to be comfortable in my skin so that I do not need to dump any of my discomfort onto someone else in the form of judgment.
Damien Rice
Fashion is only different skins for different flavours of you.
Lauren Beukes
Skin was earth; it was soil. I could see, even on my own skin, the joined trapezoids of dust specks God had wetted and stuck with his spit the morning he made Adam from dirt. Now, all these generations later, we people could still see on our skin the inherited prints of the dust specks of Eden.
Annie Dillard
I’d love to do more comedy. It’d just be nice to go into work and not be crying every day. Some broad slapstick would be great. Falling over banana skins would be wonderful.
Felicity Jones
Our devil has pale skin and blue eyes
Jose Angel Gutierrez
The Stone Age gave us arrow heads and eventually knives, and that allowed us to kill animals in ways you couldn’t before, and once you had them you were able to remove the skin and bones.
Neal Barnard
How I feel about myself is more important than how I look. Feeling confident, being comfortable in your skin – that’s what really makes you beautiful.
Bobbi Brown
We are all Adam’s children – it’s just the skin that makes all the difference.
Navjot Singh Sidhu
I’m a dark blonde, yes. I dyed my hair blue, then black, when I was 14. I thought the colour was more flattering and matched my skin tone. I don’t think I’d ever change back unless it was for a film.
Eva Green
We all live in fear of cancer, but to be told you have skin cancer was terrifying.
Stephanie Beacham
I change jobs like drinking water … And as I grow accustomed to the new flavor of a drink I regard as delicious, yes, vital, something fades, life balks. So I break camp; I shed skins.
Rita Dove
The thing that binds us together is the commonality of our dreams, not our skin tone.
T. D. Jakes
When we lay the soil of our hard lives open to the rain of grace and let joy penetrate our cracked and dry places, let joy soak into our broken skin and deep crevices, life grows. How can this not be the best thing for the world? For us?
Ann Voskamp
I like monsters in general – that’s what I like to write about. Somebody was joking with me that my body was becoming a manual for a role-playing game because I’m covered in little monsters. That’s true. I could easily have more monsters on my skin.
Maria Dahvana Headley
Now each one of us, black or white, is a symbol. The war is out in the open and the skin color is a uniform. All the deep and basic similarities of the human condition are forgotten so that we can exaggerate the few differences that exist.
John D. MacDonald
Fashion is every woman’s language, and every woman’s tool. Fashion is anatomy for me, creating your second skin is one of the most intimate art forms I can think of.
Isabel Toledo
When it comes to the skin, there are two possible ways to tighten it up: surgery, or develop the muscle underneath! It is like blowing up a balloon underneath some wrinkly sheets. It eventually pulls them tight!
Chris Powell
Take control over your skin by using an acne treatment system that actually works: Proactiv+.
Adam Levine
Wearing your clothes or standing in the shower for over an hour, pretending that this skin is your skin, these hands your hands, these shins, these soapy flanks
Richard Siken
When you’ve been really beaten, you realize that you are just an envelope of skin, an easily penetrated envelope that holds together a lot of fluids and some rigid structures, which in their turn can simply be broken and invaded.
Charlaine Harris
I am here and you will know that I am the best and will hear me. The color of my skin or the kink of my hair or the spread of my mouth has nothing to do with what you are listening to.
Leontyne Price
The Bush administration is the most diverse in history because the president fills jobs on the basis of a person’s capabilities and qualifications, not on the color of his or her skin.
Alphonso Jackson
I’m trying to get a thicker skin. I like to be aware of people’s perceptions of me, but when you put it as a priority, as a means to judging your worth, that’s when it can be dangerous.
You know, I dont play the race card a lot. Im half-black, half-white, and Im proud of – my skin is brown. The world sees me as a black man, but my mother didnt raise me as a black man. She didnt raise me as a white guy.
Shemar Moore
I love a strong brow and ChapStick with glowing skin and messy hair. I’m a minimalist at heart.
Ariana Madix
I have a skin disorder that destroys the pigmentation of the skin, it’s something that I cannot help, OK?
Michael Jackson
It’s not a feminizing product; it’s designed to make your skin look better.
Tom Ford
The more popular a person thinks he is in the blogosphere, the thinner his skin and the thicker his hypocrisy. This should be exactly the opposite: the higher you go the thicker the skin and thinner the hypocrisy.
Guy Kawasaki
And yet there was something about his strength, his arrogance, his sheer size that got under my skin. He probably couldn’t even spell vanilla. He was probably selfish in the sack. Probably selfish and greedy and…unsophisticated. And hung like a horse.
Josh Lanyon
Our facial skins are thin with large pores; our back skins are thicker with small pores. One acts mainly as filter, the other mainly as barrier. And yet, it’s the same skin, no parts, no assemblies. It’s a system that gradually varies its functionality by varying elasticity.
Neri Oxman
But these weren’t the kind of monsters that had tentacles and rotting skin, the kind a seven-year-old might be able to wrap his mind around-they were monsters with human faces, in crisp uniforms, marching in lockstep, so banal you don’t recognize them for what they are until it’s too late.
Ransom Riggs
The paint has a skin to it, here taut and glossy, there wrinkled, abraded, scarred. It is pierced, abraded, scraped. A line drawn through it will go through half a dozen states, from the furry bloom of crusted charcoal to a blind furrow, cutting a channel in to soft paint below.
Andrew Forge
I just feel like this skin is mine. It’s aging every day and the tattoos are aging with me. So, I’m going to be an old piece of paper one day with a lot of work on it.
Maria Dahvana Headley
I see my sisters, my mother, my grandmother. I like the way I look. I think I have a nice face. I like my eyes, my mouth. I have a good nose. I have good skin.
Kathy Bates
I’ve worked with some actors who have such thick skins and think they are so extraordinary. I’ll think, ‘Have you stopped learning?’ They stop listening to directors or other actors and do the same thing again and again.
Eddie Redmayne
The tattoo can only exist as part of the skin, as a drawing always is an incision in the material and therefore cannot be parted from it.
Antoni Tapies
Sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck. This is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood – finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same you could not live without.
Jodi Picoult
Just recently Ive learned to be okay with myself without wearing makeup. I think it was a special someone telling me that I didnt need it. I started taking care of my skin and realized I didnt need as much as I thought I did.
Vanessa Hudgens
The skin you’re in makes choices for you…
Tom Morello
When you buy bananas all you want is the fruit not the skin, but you have to pay for the skin also. It is a waste. And you the customer should not have to pay for the waste.
Shigeo Shingo
There is a fantasy as old as the modern gay rights movement that if all our skins turned lavender overnight, the majority, confounded by our numbers and our diversity, and recognising a few of our faces, would at once let go of prejudice forevermore.
Ian Mckellen
If literature does one thing, it makes you more empathetic by making you live other lives and feel the pain of others. Ideologues don’t feel the pain of others because they haven’t imaginatively got under their skins.
Yann Martel
I was fine with that. The very idea of Death knowing my name made my skin crawl. Even if this particular Death was only one of many, and almost too pretty to look at.
Rachel Vincent
I like to let my skin breathe when I’m not shooting or working, so that’s why you’ll find me on most of my social media accounts barefaced with face masks!
Shay Mitchell
Warriorship is so tender, without skin, without tissue, naked and raw. It is soft and gentle. You have renounced putting on a new suit of armor. You have renounced growing a thick, hard skin. You are willing to expose naked flesh, bone and marrow to the world.
Chogyam Trungpa
It doesn’t ever occur to you, as you fashion your mask so carefully, that it will grow into your skin and graft itself, come to seem irremovable.
Claire Messud
This is Romney’s biggest political weakness. His policy flip-flops and the general sense that he’s not comfortable in his own skin leads voters, including many supporters, wondering about his core values.
Ron Fournier
Beat him until there’s no skin left on his back. If he passes out, wake him and beat him again. (Father) Love you, too, Father. (Acheron)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Never hesitate to imitate another writer – every person learning a craft or an art needs models. Eventually you’ll find your own voice and will shed the skin of the writer you imitated.
William Zinsser
The concept of the characters in animal skins and us satirizing modern technology made it fun. But the voices we cast and the characterization of Fred Flintstone had a lot to do with it.
William Hanna
Let me go over this again on the reclaiming the civil rights movement. People of faith that believe that you have an equal right to justice – that is the essence. And if it’s not the essence, then we’ve been sold a pack of lies. The essence is everyone deserves a shot – the content of character, not the color of skin.
Glenn Beck
the skin of moss / holds the footprints of / star-footed birds.
Nancy Willard
It is commonly a dangerous thing for a man to have more sense than his neighbors. Socrates paid for his superiority with his life; and if Aristotle saved his skin, it was by taking to his heels in time.
Christoph Martin Wieland
When my time comes, just skin me and put me up there on Trigger, just as though nothing had ever changed.
Roy Rogers
Why hate someone for the color of their skin when there are much better reasons to hate them?
Denis Leary
‘Skins’ was such a great platform for young actors. They had this whole thing about getting people who weren’t trained, this new generation, this new culture.
Kaya Scodelario
I don’t want to go with the smooth skin and the calm brow. I hope I end up a blithering idiot cursing the sun – hallucinating, screaming, giving obscene and inane lectures on street corners and public parks.
Henry Rollins
I got so into moisturizing, my skin started overproducing oil. That’s my story. There’s a lot to talk about, for sure.
June Diane Raphael
Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.
Theodore Roosevelt
If you’re born in America with a black skin, you’re born in prison, and the masses of black people in America today are beginning to regard our plight or predicament in this society as one of a prison inmate.
Malcolm X
As hipster chicks age, and their skin starts to sag, tramp stamps sink below waistbands, like the sun slipping into the sea.
Dana Gould
I think women don’t grow up with the harsh world of criticism that men grow up with, we are more sensitively treated, and when you first experience the world of film-making you have to develop a very tough skin.
Jane Campion
Donald Trump is a guy that’s gets stuff done. If he says he’s gonna do something, he does it. He doesn’t worry about it. He’s got thick skin. He’s gonna do it. He’s gonna bring jobs back.
Frank Stallone
A film based on a jolly good John Grisham book is fine, but I like to get a bit under the skin
Charlotte Rampling
Flying is awful, there’s nothing to do when you’re up in the air. I bloat up, my skin gets dry, and when we hit turbulence, I’m terrified.
Daniela Pestova
If your friend is critical [of your work], you have to have a very thick skin and a thick skin is something that only builds up after it’s callused for awhile.
Damon Lindelof
There wouldn’t be half as much fun in the world if it weren’t for children and men, and there ain’t a mite of difference between them under the skins.
Ellen Glasgow
My skin has turned to porcelain, to ivory, to steel.
George R. R. Martin
The joyful will stoop with sorrow, and when you have gone to the earth I will let my hair grow long for your sake, I will wander through the wilderness in the skin of a lion
Michael Ondaatje
I have six brothers and sisters. We all look totally different: blonde hair, curly hair, green eyes, dark eyes, dark skin, light skin. It’s just how it is.
Rashida Jones
The mind does not take its complexion from the skin.
Frederick Douglass
People are realizing that being gay is just as defining as the color of our skin and it’s not a choice. I’m really encouraged. I think in my lifetime we will achieve equality. I’m honored to be a part of it.
Leslie Jordan
Stanley Kubrick was brilliant at getting under the audience’s skin. He was very interested in the idea of, ‘How can I tell this with just a camera?’
Tom Cruise
In practice it is possible to determine directly the skin colour and hence the ethnic affiliations of the ancient Egyptians by microscopic analysis in the laboratory; I doubt if the sagacity of the researchers who have studied the question has overlooked the possibility.
Cheikh Anta Diop
Some people have a thick skin and you don’t. Your heart is really open and that is going to cause pain, but that is an appropriate response to this world. The cost is high, but the blessing of being compassionate is beyond your wildest dreams.
Anne Lamott
I don’t think because I hang out with enough black people, I’m gonna turn black. What kind of rationalization is that? I’m just friends with people that I like. I don’t care what skin color you are.
Khloe Kardashian
Nature has neither core nor skin: she’s both at once outside and in.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
That was probably the most important fight of my career…he was this crazy guy, who acted like most adults that I knew as a kid, and I knew right away by him being so crazy and wild and quick tempered, I was gonna get under his skin and aggravate the heck out of him. And that’s exactly what I did.
Roy Jones Jr.
We will not return No one must leave here and so carry to the world, together with the sign impressed on his skin, the evil tidings of what man’s presumption made of man in Auschwitz
Primo Levi
But this is a story, and in a story there is always someone beautiful enough.” – ‘The Girl with Two Skins’ from A Guide to Folktales in Fragile Dialects
Catherynne M. Valente
Personally, I don’t like watching violence. I’d much rather see more skin.
Cameron Diaz
You’ve got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made
And people whose skin is a different shade.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I had been gullible, naive, soft, pliable. That’s why I got taken advantage of. To survive, you have to have a tough skin.
Tia Carrere
If you listen long enough you can hear my skin grow tough love is painful to the touch must be made of stronger stuff.
Tom Petty
You still should enjoy the beach and going outside. Having a good time at the beach can still include being smart about protecting your skin because getting burned is no fun at all.
Brande Roderick
I wonder if this is how people always get close: They heal each other’s wounds; they repair the broken skin.
Lauren Oliver
But he who loveliness within Hath found, all outward loathes, For he who color loves, and skin, Loves but their oldest clothes.
John Donne
People with BPD are like people with third degree burns over 90% of their bodies. Lacking emotional skin, they feel agony at the slightest touch or movement.
Marsha M. Linehan
The spiritual life is about becoming more at home in your own skin.
Parker J. Palmer
I love you more than my own skin and even though you don’t love me the same way, you love me anyways, don’t you? And if you don’t, I’ll always have the hope that you do, and i’m satisfied with that. Love me a little. I adore you.
Frida Kahlo
I’ve worked hard to feel beautiful in my natural skin. Personally, I don’t ever want to depend on makeup to feel beautiful.
Lupita Nyong’o
I went on Skins’ when I was 23, and everyone else was about 17. It was like being back at school.
Tom Payne
True Democracy makes no enquiry about the color of the skin, or the place of nativity. Wherever it sees a man, it recognizes a being endowed by his Creator with original inalienable rights
Salmon P. Chase
It helps to think of soil as a living organism covered with skin like a human. We can live with a certain percentage of our skin damaged, but if too high a percentage is damaged, we die. So, too, does soil and thus most life
Allan Savory
What I do is sometimes – at least in Germany – met with wounding campaigns. I always face the question: should I grow myself a thick skin and ignore it, or should I let myself be wounded? I’ve decided to be wounded, since, if I grew a thick skin, there are other things I wouldn’t feel any more.
Gunter Grass
Eyes open, then,” I say, tapping the skin between my eyebrows. I don’t really need her eyes to be on mine, but I feel better when they are.
Veronica Roth
In the Bible it says God has made everything good for man to eat and to wear their skins. Whenever we eat beef, we eat chicken, we have to kill to eat. But at the same time, hunting is a sport. I think it is a great sport… I would say most hunters are Christian men.
Luke Scott
I’m mildly obsessed with skin care. I do a lot of masks at home, like Elisha Coy’s Korean Collagen masks. I also use an embarrassingly wide variety of facial creams.
Nina Arianda
Nothing’s changed except the dates on the newspapers. I’m in my same skin thinking the same old thoughts. The difference between psychedelia and digitalia ages will seem like a smooth blending in years to come and will be a mere blip on the screen.
Edward Ruscha
I said, “If I was a Negro girl-” He placed his fingers across my lips so I tasted his saltiness. “We can’t think of changing our skin,” he said. “Change the world-that’s how we gotta think.”
Sue Monk Kidd
Unhappiness is a dangerous thing, like carbon monoxide. You don’t smell it, you don’t taste it, it’s formless and colourless, but it poisons slowly. It seeps into every pore of your skin until one day your heart just stops beating.
Bella Pollen
..this feeling haunts and inhabits me, like a sickness. it covers me, like skin.
Sarah Waters
In levying taxes and in shearing sheep, it is well to stop when you get down to the skin.
Austin O’Malley
But it seems to me that if God had intended for you to cover your face then, in His wisdom, He would have provided you with a flap of skin for the purpose.
Pat Condell
Grace. I held on to that name. If I kept that in my head, I would be OK. Grace. I was shaking, shaking; my skin peeling away. Grace. My bones squeezed, pinched, pressed against my muscles. Grace. Her eyes held me even after I stopped feeling her fingers gripping my arms. Sam,” she said. “Don’t go.
Maggie Stiefvater
I don’t judge those who can’t dream, those who need to pierce their arms to create different worlds under their skin, because I am fortunate in the tools of my escapes
Rawi Hage
I knew that my hair was falling out and I had really weird skin. My face looked really weird and I was getting this fuzz on my face and I was always cold – always to the point of uncontrollably shaking. I was more scared that 85 lbs. wasn’t good enough. I wanted to be lower.
Brittany Snow
Technology has also had a big impact, especially on the bike. Now everything is tested aerodynamically, wind tunnels are used to optimize performance, and frames, wheels, water bottles are all tested. Even clothing, like my Castelli Stealth Top, is faster than skin.
Timothy O’Donnell
There are an awful lot of things in the cut of street drugs that eventually make you sick. I reached a point where the skin around the edges of my fingernails used to hurt all the time. And it would peel away easily. Now, that must have been from some poison in the cut.
George Carlin
You can only really get under anybody’s skin if you are married to them.
Agatha Christie
One more thing,” Megan said, stopping Doug in his tracks. His shoulders slumped and he turned around. “What? You want my kidney?” “I want in on the next ultimate Frisbee game,” Megan said. Doug grinned. “You’re playing skins.” Megan grinned back. “We’ll see about that.
Kate Brian
My makeup artist, Tonya Brewer, taught me the importance of moisturizing daily. Hydration is a must if you want pretty, dewy skin – which I love.
Bella Thorne
I believe that one can never leave home. I believe that one carries the shadows, the dreams, the fears and the dragons of home under one’s skin, at the extreme corners of one’s eyes and possibly in the gristle of the earlobe.
Maya Angelou
Tommy [ Lee Jones] doesn’t suffer fools easily. I think everybody knows that, but I have great respect for someone that’s very direct and very honest. I don’t have thin skin so I’m okay with that.
Charlize Theron
In the holy solipsism of the young Now I can’t walk thru a city street w/out eying each single pedestrian. I feel thier vibe thru my skin, the hair on my neck — it rises.
Jim Morrison
This is my breakfast: Two poached eggs, turkey bacon, and a half avocado. The yolks in a poached egg are alkalizing. Avocados are a great source of fat and vitamin E; great for your skin. Its super light and not too heavy. Sometimes I like a little sweet as well, so I have a cup of plain yogurt with blueberries.
April Bowlby
Is it wrong for me to love my own? Is it wicked for me because my skin is red? Because I am Sioux? Because I was born where my father lived? Because I would die for my people and my country?
Sitting Bull
What I achieve the first day can be perfectly valid, but it is not satisfying. If I can go that far spontaneously, then I must shed that result as an old skin and inquire further into the unknown, or at least the not-yet-known-to-myself.
Pablo Picasso
You have to surround yourself with really good people and have a very thick skin.
Cindy Margolis
Some people are so dry that you might soak them in a joke for a month and it would not get through their skins.
Henry Ward Beecher
Look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
It’s kind of a shock to your skin, changing climates. It’s new water, and new air quality.
Shay Mitchell
When I was being photographed, I always felt very much in my own skin. That’s probably one of the reasons why I enjoy being photographed.
Gloria Vanderbilt
She must have really loved him to leave her home for the Seam. I try to remember that when all I can see is the woman who sat by, blank and unreachable, while her children turned to skin and bones. I try to forgive her for my father’s sake. But to be honest, I’m not the forgiving type.
Suzanne Collins
Intimacy is based on shared vulnerability Nothing deepens intimacy like the experiences that we share when we feel flayed, with our skins off, scared and vulnerable, and our partner is there with us, willing to share in the scary stuff.
Dossie Easton
I’m the age I am, but my skin is in pretty good condition because I’ve been consistent with my skincare.
Cate Blanchett
I can’t wait to find out how you taste, and you won’t want me to stop even after I’ve completely exhausted you. You’ll think you were on fire, your skin will burn. I’ll suck all of your juices out of you. And then I’ll drink your blood.
Jeaniene Frost
May we continue to remember not to judge man by the color of his skin, but the content of his character.
Michael Jackson
Who can now deny the loss of natural light, of skin tones, of real place, and common but precious things in our movies, to be replaced by the gorgeous imagery of things that have never been and never will be? The most special effect in movies is always the human face when its mind is being changed.
Edward Jay Epstein
What I’m trying to describe is that it’s impossible to get out of your skin into somebody else’s…. That somebody else’s tragedy is not the same as your own.
Diane Arbus
The greatest mania of all is passion: and I am a natural slave to passion: the balance between my brain and my soul and my body is as wild and delicate as the skin of a Ming vase.
Hunter S. Thompson
I have thick skin. I’m not a baby. Nothing really offends me. If there’s something I think might offend me, I don’t listen to it.
Larry the Cable Guy
Now we really like to put people in boxes. As men, we do it because we don’t understand characters that aren’t ourselves and we aren’t willing to put ourselves in the skin of those characters and women, I think, terrify us. We tend not to write women as human beings. It’s cartoons we’re making now. And that’s a shame.
Paul Haggis
I know for some girls, tight clothes make them feel like they can take on the world-and that’s fine too. But I don’t think that sexy only means showing skin: It’s all about wearing whatever makes you feel the most badass.
Holland Roden
I went through a real punk stage-I had braids, red hair, pink hair, green hair, I cut it into a Mohawk, the lot. Then about five years ago, I dyed it dark and stayed out of the sun to get pale, because I hated looking like everyone else, all blonde hair and tanned skin.
Katie McGrath
Every human being has hundreds of separate people living under his skin. The talent of a writer is his ability to give them their separate names, identities, personalities and have them relate to other characters living with him.
Mel Brooks
When people see my makeup, they think all types of crazy things that I’m doing to my skin, but it’s makeup. It’s the weirdest thing. They’ll see contouring and think you had surgery on your nose. No. No. No. Look at ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and you’ll see… you can make your nose look… what ever shape you want it.
Nicki Minaj
Until justice is blind to color, until education is unaware of race, until opportunity is unconcerned with the color of men’s skins, emancipation will be a proclamation but not a fact.
Lyndon B. Johnson
As for my ideal type, I like girls who don’t have powerful presence, and not self-centered. I’d like her to have a light skin, and a calm personality.
Dressed in the lion’s skin, the ass spread terror far and wide.
Jean de La Fontaine
The truth was only another mask, even if it was the best fit, the closest to skin and all that lay beneath
Michelle Sagara
I think you sort of shed skins as you go along in life. You get into your 40s, and you feel like, ‘OK, no more pretending.’ You get to just be who you are.
Annette Bening
With the Internet, we can communicate instantly across the globe, but the net also makes it possible for us to shrink ever further into our own skins – a state of being that neither suits the human temperament nor provides ground for further growth.
Mariella Frostrup
A woman with opinions had better develop a thick skin and a loud voice.
Anya Seton
Whether you’re gay or straight, with a physical disability, your skin’s a different color, it’s absurd in this age to not be aware and be concerned of the inequity in rights.
Carson Kressley
I admit to having worn suede and leather pants myself for a while, but you just never feel clean, and it’s degenerate, anyway, to wear animal skins…. So I went back to bluejeans after my degenerate period.
Andy Warhol
I have always been a person who is extremely comfortable in my skin. I have always just been myself in all these years on the public platform.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
This skin is a nuisance. This skin that separates you and me…it is a nuisance.
Yun Kouga
All minorities think they’re immune, but we’re absolutely part of the one in five that gets skin cancer! It’s a myth, and myths are meant to be debunked!
Gabrielle Union
She touched the healthy folds of skin around the baby’s neck, wrists, and thighs, the dark lines crying for life made in his forehead, and thought how people start with wrinkles and end with wrinkles, grow into their skin and then live to grow out of it again.
Shannon Hale
Shave a gorilla and it would be almost impossible, at twenty paces, to distinguish him from a heavyweight champion of the world. Skin a chimpanzee, and it would take an autopsy to prove he was not a theologian.
H. L. Mencken
I come from an interracial family: My father is from Nigeria, and so he is African-American, and my mother is American and white, so I rarely see skin color. It’s never an issue for me.
Annie Ilonzeh
[Islam] is not measured by the color of his skin.
Malcolm X
The bathroom door swings open. Emma sees the blood painting my skin and the red rivers carved on my body. Emma sees the wet knife, silver and bone. The screams of my little sister shatter mirrors.
Laurie Halse Anderson
Worried about a skin condition? Leap smartly into a bath of porridge.
Terry Wogan
Litigant. A person about to give up his skin for the hope of retaining his bones.
Ambrose Bierce
If we really feel like we’re comfortable in our own skins now, we have a longer period of time to live out that kind of third or fourth act of our life.
Anna Quindlen
She was his and he was hers. They had under-the-skin privileges.
Nalini Singh
The yellow glistens. It glistens with various yellows, Citrons, oranges and greens Flowering over the skin.
Wallace Stevens
And each stroke of his tongue ripped off skin after successive skin, all the skins of a life in the world, and left behind a nascent patina of shining hairs. My earrings turned back to water and trickled down my shoulders; I shrugged the drops off my beautiful fur.
Angela Carter
NASA space scientists have been studying giraffe skin so they can apply what they learn from it to the construction of spacesuits.
Joanna Lumley
I’ve always loved stories of animals and birds that can appear to be human, just by taking off their skins or their feathers.
Delia Sherman
I love movies that have that resonating scare, that really get under your skin and make you think.
Eli Roth
You and I don’t have the same genetics, we don’t live in the same places, but we can have the same basic attitude – being comfortable in our skin.
Mireille Guiliano
The skin of all of us is responsive to gypsy songs and military marches.
Jean Cocteau
I once loved a girl, her skin it was bronze With the innocence of a lamb, she was gentle like a fawn I courted her proudly but now she is gone Gone as the season she’s taken
Bob Dylan
Colin’s skin was alive with the feeling of connection to everyone in that car and everyone not in it. And he was feeling not-unique in the very best possible way.
John Green
I really love Penelope Cruz, because she has the tan skin. I think it’s important to look at people who resemble you and see what looks good on them, and how they are doing their makeup or hair and how they carry themselves.
Tiffany Dupont
Poetry is the skin that I have between my body and the world’s body.
Lucie Brock-Broido
The wolf must die in his own skin.
George Herbert
You cannot have a healthy body without drinking a great deal of water. But remember, you can’t just drink a glass of water and tell a glass of water to please go straight to your skin and moisturize your complexion. Water has to be there all the time, doing what it does naturally in a healthy body.
Diane von Furstenberg
‘Skins’ is actually a part of who I am as a person, so I was really focused on making sure the scripts and the story lines were right.
Kaya Scodelario
If beauty is only skin deep, look really, really hard.
Virginia Heffernan
I have a fantastic method for anti-ageing. It’s eating. Plumps out your skin beautifully.
Miranda Hart
She wasn’t happy, but then she wasn’t unhappy. She wasn’t anything. But I don’t believe anyone is a nothing. There has to be something inside, if only to keep the skin from collapsing. This vacant eye, listless hand, this damask cheek dusted like a doughnut with plastic powder, had to have a memory or a dream.
John Steinbeck
Why? You want to know why? Step into a tanning booth and fry yourself for two or three days. After your skin bubbles and peels off, roll in coarse salt, then pull on long underwear woven from spun glass and razor wire. Over that goes your regular clothes, as long as they are tight.
Laurie Halse Anderson
Some guys say beauty is only skin deep. But when you walk into a party, you don’t see somebody’s brain. The initial contact has to be the sniffing.
James Caan
It’s as important to be well informed in this area, if you’re going to do it, as it is to be well informed about procedures in skin diving and that sort of thing if you’re going to do that.
Terence McKenna
A man’s name is not like a mantle which merely hangs about him…but a perfectly fitting garment, which, like the skin, has grown over him, at which one cannot rake and scrape without injuring the man himself.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The laughter in his deep-set black eyes, the feverish heat of his big hand around mine, the flash of his white teeth against his dark skin, his face stretching into the wide smile that had always been like a key to a secret door where only kindred spirits could enter.
Stephenie Meyer
It was there, beyond the skin of this world, that a cure of ugliness could be found.
Ted Dekker
I have lots of desires – good body, nice skin, cute, beautiful, knows how to cook, concentrates on her work, a girl that’s worth the respect.
Become a worry-slapper. Treat frets like mosquitoes. Do you procrastinate when a bloodsucking bug lights on your skin? ‘I’ll take care of it in a moment.’ Of course you don’t! You give the critter the slap it deserves. Be equally decisive with anxiety.
Max Lucado
I was raised with pretty thick skin. And I think people are hungry for politicians who aren’t afraid to say what they think and mean it.
Justin Trudeau
When I meet a new person, something has to be a little off for me to consider them beautiful. It could be crooked teeth, or veins in their skin that are a little too visible, or a really dramatic lazy eye. The first guy I ever kissed had a water head.
Amy Sedaris
Be who you want to be – be free in your own skin, be liberated and feel beautiful, and do what you want to do without judgement
Adam Lambert
Life is easier when you are comfortable in your own skin.
Amy Dickinson
As Conservatives, We Don’t Care About The Color of Your Skin, We Care About The Color of Our Flag
Allen West
Life forms a surface that acts as if it could not be otherwise, but under its skin things are pounding and pulsing.
Robert Musil
I thought I am kissing pain and pain belongs to You as happiness never does. I love You in Your pain. I could almost taste metal and salt in the skin, and I thought, How good you are. You might have killed us with happiness, but You let us be with You in pain.
Graham Greene
I don’t see my skin aging. I see my skin looking as good, or better, than it did ten years ago…and that makes me smile.
Cindy Crawford
You must have to want it so badly, if there is any way you can live without it, get out of it. Being an unsuccessful actor is like having a skin disease. Make sure your passion is not misplaced.
Tom Sizemore
This is really skin privilege, the ranking of color in terms of its closeness to white people or white-skinned people and its devaluation according to how dark one is and the impact that has on people who are dedicated to the privileges of certain levels of skin color.
Toni Morrison
Latin beauty means being proud of yourself and your culture; being sophisticated and beautiful; and embracing your complexion – whether you have light or dark skin – because it’s gorgeous. We’re such a beautiful rainbow of women.
Chrissie Fit
He felt his smile slide away, melt, fold over and down on itself like a tallow skin, like the stuff of a fantastic candle burning too long and now collapsing and now blown out.
Ray Bradbury
I was interested in how we engage the world. How do we use our skin as our eyes? If you read a cityscape or a landscape with just your mind, and not your body, it becomes like a picture or representation, not something you really engage with.
Olafur Eliasson
The hostile attitude of conquering nature ignores the basic interdependence of all things and events–that the world beyond the skin is actually an extension of our own bodies–and will end in destroying the very environment from which we emerge and upon which our whole life depends.
Alan Watts
Now, personally, I am baffled by the concept of racial prejudice. Why hate someone based on the color of their skin when, if you take the time to get to know them as a human being, you can find so many other things to hate them for?
Dennis Miller
Live like a mud-fish: its skin is bright and shiny even though it lives in mud.
What’s weird about the cinema business is that you have to have a thick skin while remaining vulnerable as an artist. It comes with time. You get dumped, your heart gets broken.
Rose Byrne
Skin has become inadequate in interfacing with reality. Technology has become the body’s new membrane of existence.
Nam June Paik
Experience has taught me, when I am shaving of a morning, to keep watch over my thoughts, because, if a line of poetry strays into my memory, my skin bristles so that the razor ceases to act.
A. E. Housman
If truth were a crayon and it was up to me to put a wrapper on it and name it’s color, I know just what I would call it-dinosaur skin.
Sarah Weeks
[O]nce you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.” – The Skin Horse from The Velveteen Rabbit
Margery Williams
We have inherited a great music. This music is a holdover. It comes with us like the skin, the texture of our hair. It’s our memory banks.
Abbey Lincoln
Huts they made then, and fire, and skins for clothing, And a woman yielded to one man in wedlock… … Common, to see the offspring they had made; The human race began to mellow then. Because of fire their shivering forms no longer Could bear the cold beneath the covering sky.
You start out giving your hat, then you give your coat, then your shirt, then your skin and finally your soul.
Charles de Gaulle
That’s the ultimate goal of most turkey recipes: to create a great skin and stuffing to hide the fact that turkey meat, in its cooked state, is dry and flavorless. Does it have to be that way? No. We just have to focus on what the turkey is and what the turkey needs.
Alton Brown
You lay your hand against his skin and just rib his back. Blow into his ear. Press that baby up against your own skin and walk outside with him, where the night air will sourround him, and moonlight fall on his face. Whistle, maybe. Dance. Hum. Pray. (how to calm a crying baby)
Joyce Maynard
I keep telling everyone that I want to start a revolution but no one is taking me seriously. If I had black skin and an afro, would you take me seriously? If I was an Arab waving a hand grenade, would you take me seriously?
Madonna Ciccone
Painting is sometimes like those recipes where you do all manner of elaborate things to a duck, and then end up putting it on one side and only using the skin.
Lucian Freud
Punk, I see you as a hypocritical, manipulative waste of skin.
Wade Barrett
Sometimes you do absolutely know there’s something there. You feel it in your bones. I actually literally feel it on my skin sometimes. I do get goosebumps. There are times when you go oh God, that works that moment! But you find you take it apart again.
Oliver Parker
There are some weaknesses that are peculiar and distinctive to generous characters, as freckles are to a fair skin.
Christian Nestell Bovee
If we are not peaceful, if we are not feeling well in our skin, we cannot demonstrate real peace, and we cannot raise our children well either.
Nhat Hanh
I use Ahava skincare, which is natural line from Israel and is made from minerals from the Dead Sea. I have the most sensitive skin.
Kristin Davis
Imagine a guy. He’s a little taller than you, with perfect skin, skin that just screams “touch me!” and dark hair and gorgeous blue eyes and he looks so sweet and he is sweet. And then have him blush a little.
Elizabeth Scott
If you’re comfortable in your own skin, you will feel beautiful – and look beautiful to others, too.
Adriana Lima
This was my one brush with love. Was it love? It felt awful enough. I spent another two years crawling around in the skin of it, smoking too much and growing too thin and having stray thoughts of jumping from my balcony like a tortured heroine in a Russian novel.
Paula McLain
Beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin. It’s about knowing and accepting who you are.
Ellen DeGeneres
Gleaming skin; a plump elongated shape: the eggplant is a vegetable you’d want to caress with your eyes and fingers, even if you didn’t know its luscious flavor.
Roger Verge
Or had she always loved him? It’s likely. Restricted as she was from speaking, she wanted him to kiss her. She wanted him to drag her hand across and pull her over. It didn’t matter where. Her mouth, her neck, her cheek. Her skin was empty for it, waiting.
Markus Zusak
I love being natural. I never feel more beautiful then after I’ve been to the beach and my hair’s just a crazy mess of salt curls, or when I’ve just been outside all day hiking. I feel like my skin is at its most beautiful during those times, too – so I try not to do a lot.
Troian Bellisario
We’re all brothers and sisters. It doesn’t matter what language you speak or what color your skin is.
Shay Carl
I never felt the urge to jump off a bridge, but there are times I have wanted to jump out of my life, out of my skin.
David Levithan
Our worst pain is confined within our own skin.
Charles Frazier
The president of the United States is a pretty important position, and it’s the ideas and policies that matter to me, not the color of their skin.
Rush Limbaugh
Some of these people make my skin crawl.
Roger Ebert
In the land of my birth I cannot vote, whereas a young person of eighteen can vote. And why? Because he or she possesses that wonderful biological attribute – a white skin.
Desmond Tutu
What happens is that in each clump you’ve got the gelatinization of starches, which happens very quickly at the surface of the clump and it kind of forms a protective skin around this dry hunk of flour.
Alton Brown
He looks tired, like someone walked on his skin and left footprints.
Jennifer Egan
If this earth should ever be destroyed, it will be by desire, by the lust of pleasure and self-gratification, by greed of the green frog skin, by people who are mindful of their own self, forgetting about the wants of others.
John Fire Lame Deer
Dan instantly recognized the angry scratch that stretched from the corner of Ian’s eye all the way along the olive skin to his chin. “Have you been messing with Saladin?” “No. Saladin has been messing with me,” Ian shot back. “He isn’t big on Lucians,” Dan explained. “Animals are really good judges of character.
Gordon Korman
My characters are more like men than these real men are, see. They’re rough and rude, they got hands and they got bellies. They hate and they lust; break the skin of civilization and you find the ape, roaring and red-handed.
Robert E. Howard
I still don’t get stopped about anything else anywhere near as much as ‘Skins.’ The remarkable thing that I’ve noticed is how far that show has traveled: it’s aired all over the world.
Joe Dempsie
Fur only looks good on its original owner. Be comfortable in your own skin, and let animals keep theirs.
Tim Howard
My first rule of travel is never to go to a place that sounds like a medical condition and Critz is clearly an incurable disease involving flaking skin.
Bill Bryson
Vampires have bright eyes glistening white teeth unnaturally smooth skin and a certain animal magnetism. If they aren’t pretty they starve. It’s sort of like life in Los Angeles.
Molly Harper
When I was young, to have a big nose, big lips or dark skin was the worst. You were the wretched.
Nate Parker
Jesus resisted the temptation of outrage and the quick fix of condemnation. He spent most of his time preparing wineskins before pouring new wine into them. Our tendency is to start pouring the wine into skins that will only burst.
Ravi Zacharias
they ran in the sunlight, creating their own breeze which pressed their dresses into their damp skin. Reaching a kind of square of four locked trees which promised cooling; they flung themselves into the shade to taste their lip sweat and contemplate the wildness that had come upon them so suddenly
Toni Morrison
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream – I think it’s fantastic.В  The same girl has been doing my make-up for 12 years and she says my skin’s never looked so good.
Gaby Roslin
What is a house but a bigger skin, and a neighborhood map but the world’s skin ever expanding?
Annie Dillard
The human being is a skin-covered petrie dish.
Bruce H. Lipton
Ah, the feeling you get holding a diamond in your hand! It seems to bore into your skin, to burn, to breathe. It’s like holding a bit of the moon in your hand.
Anna Magnani
When I hit the skins they all say, ‘Damn Kane…
You knock out the Bush like a presidential campaign!’
Big Daddy Kane
I’ve always been really, really aware of my insecurities – really, really aware. I never developed that thick skin that keeps you from letting things get to you.
Taylor Swift
Being able to choose the skin I live in was the draw of fashion.
Stacy London
A lot of the exercise of embracing identity as a political affirmation is not just simply parked in the question of skin color or culture, but more it is a political affirmation with all these implications and more.
As an actor, throughout three years, I’ve become more comfortable within my own skin and confident.
Laura Vandervoort
I often have said that to be a college president, you need a thick skin, a good sense of humor, and nerves like sewer pipes.
Gordon Gee
I’m not talking ideas, or even presentation. It’s like in politics: You have to sell something to become an electric player – like your skin or your heart.
Keith Jarrett
The great thing about ‘Skins’ is that it’s not ‘90210.’ We don’t have to look stick-thin and ripped. Those shows send out the wrong messages by showing body-perfect people but not mentioning that they spend four hours a day in the gym to look that way.
Kathryn Prescott
In peace and silence, the skin of the ‘I’ dissolves and the inner and the outer become one.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
To be comfortable in your skin was the biggest topic for me because I’m somebody who’s always judged just by how I look. I wanted to get the message across that you don’t have to hide yourself or be glamorous, just be you.
Kid Ink
My skin is hard when it comes to my music. But with my movies, I’m still a virgin in a lot of ways. I’m not used to being shot down for no reason.
Will Smith
I know as actors our job is usually to shed our skins, but I think as people our job is to become who we really are and so I would like to salute the men and women who brave ostracism, alienation and a life lived on the margins to become who they really are.
Felicity Huffman
There’s something magical about a woman who feels comfortable in her own skin.
Brooke Burke
I use color as my chief guide. But I always squeeze an avocado – you want the fruit to feel close to the skin. If you can feel a separation, the avocado is past its prime. The avocado should have a little give, but not much.
Dorie Greenspan
There is no becoming, no revolution, no struggle, no path; already you’re the monarch of your own skin – your inviolable freedom waits to be completed only by the love of other monarchs: a politics of dream, urgent as the blueness of sky.
Hakim Bey
Of course, I love everyone I meet. How could I fail to! Within everyone is the spark of God. I am not concerned with racial or ethnic background or the color of one’s skin; all people look to me like shining lights! I see in all creatures the reflections of God. All people are my kinfolk – people to me are beautiful!
Peace Pilgrim
I love diving into different skins, skins that make me feel deep emotions.
Aaron Paul
When you see deterioration in the skin or the hair, you are having problems with the subtle body. You’re taking in too much bad energy, usually from people, or you’re thinking too many negative thoughts. You are pulling an energy that is not suitable for the human form.
Frederick Lenz
I just think fashion is about enjoying yourself and being comfortable in your skin and allowing you to be you – all the way live.
Jill Scott
When I read a script, I’ll have a very visceral gut reaction to what does this mean to me? How does she feel in my skin? Could I play this role?
Emily Blunt
My advice: Don’t waste so much time worrying about your skin or your weight. Develop what you do, what you put your hands on in the world.
Meryl Streep
You have to grow thick skin and that only comes with time and learning.
Karlie Kloss
The guitar’s still around me. I slip it off and put it down. I want to feel him. To feel his breath on my neck. The warmth of his skin. To feel something other than sadness. Hold me, I tell him silently. Hold me here. To this place. This life. Make me want you. Want this. Want something. Please
Jennifer Donnelly
The Black skin is not a badge of shame, but rather a glorious symbol of national greatness.
Marcus Garvey
The kitchen, reasonably enough, was the scene of my first gastronomic adventure. I was on all fours. I crawled into the vegetable bin, settled on a giant onion and ate it, skin and all. It must have marked me for life, for I have never ceased to love the hearty flavor of raw onions.
James Beard
The main part of the house is a deep red and I have butterscotch carpet. And I have a bathroom with leopard skin floor, wallpaper and toilet.
Macy Gray
In a subway car, my skin would typically fall in the middle of the color spectrum. On street corners, tourists would ask me for directions. I was, in four and a half years, never an American; I was immediately a New Yorker.
Mohsin Hamid
There walked warlocks in all their bat-winged, cat-eyed glory, and here, as they swung out over the river, she saw the darting flash of multicolored tails under the silvery skin of the water, the shimmer of long, pearl-strewn hair, and heard the high, rippling laughter of the mermaids.
Cassandra Clare
I think it’s just getting comfortable in New York City, comfortable in your own skin.
Alex Rodriguez
Death consists, indeed, in a repeated process of unrobing, or unsheathing. The immortal part of man shakes off from itself, one after the other, its outer casings, and – as the snake from its skin, the butterfly from its chrysalis – emerges from one after another, passing into a higher state of consciousness.
Annie Besant
My dad would call me his Cuban princess because I had really dark olive skin because I was always in the sun; but I don’t really go in the sun anymore, so that is why I am so white.
Bella Thorne
In becoming a whole person, the grateful leper was healed inside as well as on the outside. That day nine lepers were healed skin deep, but only one had the faith to be made whole. The tenth leper [was] changed eternally by [his] faith in the Savior and the healing power of his atonement.
Merrill J. Bateman
I’m very into dark colors. I try to rock the dark against the ghost white skin as much as humanly possible.
Vanessa Marano
I have a horror of the word ‘flesh’, which has become so shopworn.Why not ‘meat’whilethey’re about it? What I like is skin, a young girl’s skin that is pink and shows that she has a good circulation.
Pierre-Auguste Renoir
I hate to try to be that person in my own skin, in my own way, in my own head, not through exercises or anything else, just by, I guess, belief, concentration.
Elizabeth Taylor
I don’t think there is a need of the categorization ‘woman writing’. I think in some sense writers lost their gender when they walk into the world of words; I believe that writers ought to be able to slip under the skins of both men and women. Only then will the writing and the characters have credibility and strength.
Anita Nair
The best herb I smoke in Jamaica and Africa. African – Rasclot! Them people cure it in a banana. In a banana skin. A green banana. They wrap it up in a banana so when you get it, it compressed and, I’ll tell you, it great! Blood clot! In Nigeria and Ghana, love that herb! Good herb, mon.
Bob Marley
It is silly to go on pretending that under the skin we are brothers. The truth is more likely that under the skin we are all cannibals, assassins, traitors, liars and hypocrites.
Henry Miller
It is the sin of omission, the second kind of sin,
That lays eggs under your skin.
Ogden Nash
No, I like to wear as least amount of makeup as I can during my everyday life because I’m just all about keeping my skin healthy and hydrated and I love to laugh and have a great time and smile – that’s when I feel the most pretty so I just want to make sure that I stay happy.
Lily Collins
APHORISM, n. Predigested wisdom. The flabby wine-skin of his brain Yields to some pathologic strain, And voids from its unstored abysm The driblet of an aphorism. “The Mad Philosopher,” 1697
Ambrose Bierce
I don’t like basements, but definitely basements could be poems. Not fond of skin diseases, but again, there’s a pattern. Probably anything could be a poem.
Matthea Harvey
It takes practice to shave the skin off the light.
Anne Carson
Photography’s a case of keeping all the pores of the skin open, as well as the eyes. A lot of photographers today think that by putting on the uniform, the fishing vest, and all the Nikons, that that makes them a photographer. But it doesn’t. It’s not just seeing. It’s feeling.
Don McCullin
When you hear the word tear gas you think, well, your eyes will burn and that’s it. But that whole feeling of your whole skin burning, that you can’t breathe, you can’t inhale, you feel suffocated – it’s a very, very terrifying experience.
Haskell Wexler
I have a thick skin, which comes from being a not-really-skinny, dark-skinned Indian woman. I haven’t fit in every place, and so I’m kind of used to resistance.
Mindy Kaling
Mr. D, wearing his leopard-skin jogging suit and rummaging through the refrigerator. He looked up lazily. “Do you mind?” Where’s Chiron!” I shouted. How rude.” Mr. D took a swig from a jug of grape juice. “Is that how you say hello?” Hello,” I amended. “We’re about to die! Where’s Chiron?
Rick Riordan
Mama tied a blindfold over my eyes. The next thing I felt my flesh was being cut away. I heard the blade sawing back and forth through my skin. The pain between my legs was so intense I wished I would die.
Waris Dirie
Nothing is more American than stuffing your face with loaded potato skins while drinking loaded mudslides.
Chelsea Handler
I had an amazing experience doing ‘Skins.’ It was the first acting I’d ever done in my entire life, so I had to learn on set for those two years. I had to keep my head screwed on and learn from the other cast.
Mitch Hewer
Charlie took my hand and, in a symbol as old as the world, placed it in Edward’s. I touched the cool miracle of his skin, and I was home.
Stephenie Meyer
Science offends the modesty of all real women. It makes them feel as though it were an attempt to peek under their skin–or, worseyet, under their dress and ornamentation!
Friedrich Nietzsche
The entire ‘my art is better than your art’ thing really gets under my skin. The fact of the matter is: Your art IS better than my art… at being what it is. So what? It just so happens that my art is better than your art, at being what it is.
Derek R. Audette
A person who looks different all the time frightens me. Only one animal changes its skin: the snake.
Franz Grillparzer
I felt the breath of God go cold on my skin.
Leah Price
I think a stalwart peasant in sheep-skin coat, born on the soil, whose forefathers have been farmers for ten generations, with a stout wife and a half dozen children, is good quality
Clifford Sifton
I have olive skin, so if I get pale, I look green. I have to tan.
Nicole Richie
I owe the quality of my skin to my cosmetic surgeon.
Cindy Crawford
My wish was to finish my career at Arsenal, but there are always banana skins.
Kolo Toure
However in the world did her skin come green?” Nanny wondered, stupidly, for Melena blanched and Frex reddened, and the baby held her breath as if trying to turn blue to please them all. Nanny had to slap her to make her breath again.
Gregory Maguire
My mom always told me drinking water was the most important skin care tip. I also think the less you do to your skin the better. I’m a fan of simple and natural products.
Hailey Rhode Baldwin
Every single pore – not on the men, but on the women – is scrutinized, so I am really grateful that I feel very confident in my own skin.
Cate Blanchett
Leaders need to cultivate two things: a righteous heart and a rhinoceros skin.
Charles R. Swindoll
Recently, I kind of found that if I just step into my own skin and relax and just walk like I’m just walking down the street, it always looks better than if you try too many cool moves.
Gigi Hadid
Plastic surgery is such a displacement. If people feel good in their skin, then they’re beautiful, end of story.
Francoise Mouly
There’s more than one way to skin a cat, my father used to say; it bothered me, I didn’t see why they would want to skin a cat even one way.
Margaret Atwood
That’s a big nose,” he croaked and instantly realized he shouldn’t have said something so impolite. I must be light headed, e thought. But the face smiled. The teeth seemed inordinatley white against the dark beard and skin. The only one I have,” he said.
John Flanagan
Silk and Shadows is something else. Like brilliant. It got under my skin as very, very few books have. It’s still under my skin. Mikhal was haunting.
Loretta Chase
There’s art that I think is pretty silly, but it doesn’t get under my skin like it used to.
Joe Bradley
Beauty is only skin deep; ugliness goes all the way through.
Edward Abbey
Beauty is self-defined, perceived and understood without ambiguity. It’s the stuff that lies under the skins of our individual existences.
Terence McKenna
I keep my skin – especially on my face and neck – out of the sun. My brother died of melanoma eight years ago, and I’ve got SPF on all the time, 24-7. It makes you realize, the sun is a wonderful thing, but it can be a very devastating thing. So sunscreen is key, and a lot of laughter, too.
Giada De Laurentiis
There are technical tricks that may help you create more effective characters. My approach to characterization is not at all technical. I can’t really analyze how I do it, but I am sure of one thing. To write convincing characters, you must possess the ability to think yourself into someone else’s skin.
Juliet Marillier
Our mouths and bodies speak for us in a new language as the trees shake loose a rain of petals that stick to our slickness like skins we will wear forever. And just like that, I am changed.
Libba Bray
Peeling off my skin / leaving just my eyes behind / You see inside my head / Still know that you are mine.
Maggie Stiefvater
Some women,” Dahariel said in that same hard tone devoid of any hint of humanity, “get under a man’s skin until digging them out makes you bleed.
Nalini Singh
I don’t want people to sit there and objectively watch the film. I want them to experience it as something that’s under their skin, so you try to make the films really tactile.
Danny Boyle
I feel like the only person in the world who sees David Beckham modelling his swimming pants on the cover of Elle magazine and thinks – oh, how much better a handsome guy like you would look, David, without all those dumb ink stains stitched into your skin.
Tony Parsons
Shed your mortal skin and let me take you beneath the waves.
Janet Morris
You philosophers are lucky men. You write on paper and paper is patient. Unfortunate Empress that I am, I write on the susceptible skins of living beings.
Catherine the Great
Men should be judged not by their tint of skin, the gods they serve, the vintage they drink, nor by the way they fight, or love, or sin, but by the quality of the thought they think.
Adela Florence Nicolson
If whiteness were of no particular advantage, then having a fuller color wheel of skin tones would be purely a matter of celebration. But whiteness – just a drop of it – does still carry privilege. You learn that very young in America.
Eric Liu
Today, at Harvard, any student with the currently fashionable color of skin is given rights denied to students of the currently unfashionable color.
Al Capp
Aside from eating healthy and taking care of my body, I’ve always been passionate about skincare. It’s an essential part of my daily regimen, which is why I decided to create my own skincare line, DEVONNE by Demi. When my skin is clean, I feel my best!
Demi Lovato
I mean, when you grow up dancing, you have to become very comfortable in your own skin.
Sharni Vinson
I like Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, as its great for soothing dry skin and adding shine. I use it instead of balm, too.
Ashley Madekwe
My skin’s too white.” she said. Says who, Snow White?” he said, touching her cheek lightly with one hand.
Regina Doman
I once heard someone on a bus say that this guy had gotten under her skin. And it struck me as a remarkable thought – that someone would affect you so deeply they’d always be a part of you.
Jodi Picoult
What I do for a living means that people look at me. As an actress, you are scrutinized. You are not just dealing with your looks privately, you are on display. I have never been 100 percent comfortable in my own skin. I go through different phases. But I don’t feel beautiful all the time, no.
Sophia Myles
My type, which I didnt realize until somebody pointed out to me, apparently is brunettes with darker skin tones, but that is about it as far as aesthetically.
Derek Hough
This was what she needed… the quiet turning to the other in the middle of the night, the wordless meeting of lips, skin, breath. The trust, unfurling one pale petal at a time, that he would be there.
Eileen Wilks
Silk didn’t care if it slid over scars or smooth, untouched skin. I’d earned my right to be paranoid.
Laurell K. Hamilton
I put a What Would Jesus Do bracelet on my Jewish friend’s wrist and it burned his skin. He threw it on the ground, it turned into a serpent, we both started laughing. We left it there, we hate snakes. We think they’re slimy, even though we know they’re not.
Daniel Tosh
In Hollywood if you’re good looking, tall, have OK teeth and nice skin, the odds of being successful are great. If you’re short and fat, it’s a different story. But as long as you look like a leading man type, half your job is done already
John Corbett
I feel sexy when I get out of the tub – your skin is fresh and you’ve put up your hair without looking.
Shania Twain
Your skin’s so fair its not fair
St. Vincent
True self-esteem is realizing that you are valuable because you were born. No matter where you came from, what color your skin is, what people say about your family or what mean things people may have done to you, because you were born, you are important and you matter.
Oprah Winfrey
No person, I think, ever saw a herd of buffalo, of which a few were fat and the great majority lean. No person ever saw a flock of birds, of which two or three were swimming in grease, and the others all skin and bone.
Henry George
Nobody can claim the name of Pedro, nobody is Rosa or MarГ­a, all of us are dust or sand, all of us are rain under rain. They have spoken to me of Venezuelas, of Chiles and Paraguays; I have no idea what they are saying. I know only the skin of the earth and I know it has no name.
Pablo Neruda
If i’m going to survive, it won’t be because i have a lion-skin cloak. I’m not Hercules.
Rick Riordan
A bit of lusting after someone does wonders for the skin.
Elizabeth Hurley
Even if you’ve taken off every stitch of clothing, you still have your secrets, your history, your true name. It’s hard to be really naked. You have to work hard at it. Just getting into a bath isn’t being naked, not really. It’s just showing skin.
Catherynne M. Valente
Owning your curves means being confident – actually being confident – in your own skin.
Meghan Trainor
Don’t be polite.
Bite in.
Pick it up with your fingers and lick the juice that may run down your chin.
It is ready and ripe now, whenever you are.
You do not need a knife or fork or spoon.
For there is no core
or stem
or rind
or pit
or seed
or skin
to throw away.
Eve Merriam
I am a world-class weenie when it comes to letting people stick needles into me. My subconscious mind firmly believes that if God had wanted us to have direct access to our bloodstreams, He would have equipped our skin with small, clearly marked doors.
Dave Barry
The range of human skin colours is quite narrow when you think about it – and I do – and subtle – beige, pink, white, tan, taup.
Peter Greenaway
When you are skinning your customers, you should leave some skin on to heal, so that you can skin them again.
Nikita Khrushchev
In different hours, a man represents each of several of his ancestors, as if there were seven or eight of us rolled up in each man’s skin, – seven or eight ancestors at least, and they constitute the variety of notes for that new piece of music which his life is.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
In this movie, you have all the things you love from Tim. All the magic and the whimsy and the surreal, but he also has a fantastic story of a father and son that really gets under your skin.
Danny DeVito
Botox, I think, is poison, I would never put it into my face, and I’m needle-phobic. I spend a lot of time keeping my face out of the sun and taking care of my skin and wearing make-up.
Joan Collins
If you’re successful, acting is about as soft a job as anybody could ever wish for. But if you’re unsuccessful it’s worse than having a skin disease.
Marlon Brando
I would not be standing here today if my skin were white or my religion were Presbyterian. I am here today only because my skin is yellow and my religion is Unification Church. The ugliest things in this beautiful country of America are religious bigotry and racism.
Sun Myung Moon
Mostly, what I have learned so far about aging, despite the creakiness of one’s bones and cragginess of one’s once-silken skin, is this: Do it. By all means, do it.
Maya Angelou
We’ll squeeze every second that we can from our lives, because we’re young, and we have plenty of years to grow. We’ll grow until we’re braver. We’ll grow until our bones ache and our skin wrinkles and our hair goes white, and until our hearts decide, at last, that it’s time to stop.
Lauren DeStefano
We are all brothers under the skin – and I, for one, would be willing to skin humanity to prove it.
Ayn Rand
I keep up with everything in terms of health, fitness, nutrition, skin care, hair, nails. Really, everything. I’m an avid reader of every women’s health newsletter from every hospital in the country.
Evelyn Lauder
I support all people on earth
who have bodies like and unlike my body,
skins and moles and old scars,
secret and public hair,
crooked toes. I support
those who have done nothing large.
Naomi Shihab Nye
The color of somebody’s skin or the way he wears his hair or clothes has nothing to do with anything.
Mills Lane
A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don’t know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox’s or bear’s, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there.
Meister Eckhart
We live in an atmosphere of shame. We are ashamed of everything that is real about us; ashamed of ourselves, of our relatives, of our incomes, of our accents, of our opinions, of our experience, just as we are ashamed of our naked skins.
George Bernard Shaw
I’ve always cared about the world. That’s never been an issue. But with learning how to smile, it’s been learning how to feel comfortable within my own skin, and to feel accepted, and to feel empowered, and to feel worthy.
Art Alexakis
The smell of her hair, the taste of her mouth, the feeling of her skin seemed to have got inside him, or into the air all round him. She had become a physical necessity.
George Orwell
Mentally strong people are comfortable in their own skin.
John C. Maxwell
I’ll go to Tracie Martyn about a week before and get the Resculpting Facial. It makes you look brighter, healthier… like you got some extra rest. I’m 33 now and need to treat my skin, otherwise it doesn’t look fresh.
Kate Winslet
The success occurs in a place outside of me, and doesn’t touch me on an intimate level. I live in my own skin, I have not changed greatly, I remain the same woman.
Isabel Allende
It is a myth that style can’t be learnt. It’s all about dressing for your body shape, following the rules and wearing colours that suit your skin tone.
Susannah Constantine
Beauty is only skin deep.
Thomas Overbury
You walk off the plane in Rio, and your blood temperature goes up. The feel of the wind on your face, the water on your skin, the taste of the food, the music, the sexuality; Brazilians are very comfortable in their sexuality.
Amy Irving
It’s an odd kind of feeling because it sort of reminds me of being five again. When you’re a five-year-old, you don’t pay any attention to what anyone thinks of you. You just sort of are in your skin.
Anna Quindlen
Before the boiling of blood and the searing of skin comes the secret catastrophe: Before Life on Earth becomes finally merely impossible, it will for a long time before have become completely unbearable.
Tony Kushner
Some exfoliates have rocks in them and it makes your skin really smooth, and cat litter is a good substitute. I haven’t broke out at all yet!
Nicole Polizzi
Beauty lies mainly, above all, in personality, not in the skin.
Eva Longoria
For me especially, I travel a lot, and with the weather change and everything, my skin gets dehydrated very fast.
Gal Gadot
Cleanses and products don’t make you look more beautiful. They certainly help, but if you reach contentment, you’re set. My makeup artist, Melanie Iglesias, couldn’t figure out why my skin looks so good. I think it’s because I’m happy!
Olivia Wilde
A novelist is a person who lives in other people’s skins.
E. L. Doctorow
Women think black is the most flattering color, but they’re wrong. Pink adds a cosmetic-like radiance and warmth. Black drains the skin of color; pink delights the eye.
Oscar de la Renta
You are God’s dream with skin on
Heidi Baker
I already had three strikes against me. One, I have light skin. Two, I’m from Miami, which wasn’t getting looked at at the time. Three, I’m Cuban. But now, I’ve made everything that stacked against me into a virtue.
I say let me never be complete, I say may I never be content,I say deliver me from Swedish furniture, I say deliver me from clever arts, I say deliver me from clear skin and perfect teeth,I say you have to give up! I say evolve, and let the chips fall where they may!
Chuck Palahniuk
There`s a certain attitude toward being presidential that is now going away and I think the other thing we`re seeing is really a moment where I think Republicans are waking up to the fact that they should have been doing this a lot earlier. They should have been trying to get under Donald Trump`s skin a lot earlier.
Donald Trump
Religion and love don’t have a price, don’t have a gender, a skin color, nothing. We are all on the same plate.
Riccardo Tisci
I love the smell of a mans skin.
J. Courtney Sullivan
Because of all the cosmetic services like skin whitening and hair bleaching, there is a lot that people can do to change their appearance without having actual surgery. It’s quite common in Thailand and Korea and Japan.
Jess Row
Shedding off one more layer of skin, Keeping one step ahead of the persecutor within.
Bob Dylan
I love chicken. I love chicken products: fried chicken, roasted chicken, chicken nuggets – whatever. And going to Japan, I would see that these chicken were smoked and then grilled and then have this amazing crispy skin.
David Chang
When I was nine, I was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat and was prescribed beta blockers, which had the side effect of turning my skin green. Looking like Shrek’s little sister at school wasn’t the easiest thing.
Jessie J
People don’t associate red hair, pale skin, and freckles with beauty.
Shirley Manson
I have more energy to run after our four children. Weight loss and great skin were a bonus!
Niecy Nash
I have tough skin. I don’t really read any of the comments unless they are positive. I don’t accept that much negativity in my life. It’s not an option.
Scott Eastwood
Sometimes I worry I’m not going to be the best parent because if my baby gets a skin fungus I might sell him at a garage sale.
Sara Quin
Old people who live too long come to resemble turtles. As though time turned in a curve, and down they go to the reptiles again. Not the little wet naked frog they were born. But the tortoise. Cold eyes, sagging circles of skin, the nose becomes beak. The shell of sleep.
Josephine Winslow Johnson
I cheat my boys every chance I get. I trade with the boys and skin ’em and I just beat ’em every time I can. I want to make ’em sharp.
John D. Rockefeller
It’s important to leave your face without makeup for a while after waking up…Let your skin breathe a while before applying your makeup, even if it means waking up a bit earlier.
Diane von Furstenberg
Your skin is your largest organ, and it wants to breathe. There are so many times, like Fashion Week, when you [need to] think about all the stuff your skin and body have absorbed through makeup and products and all this stuff.
Erin Wasson
It would be about as easy for an American to become a Chinaman or a Hindoo as for him to acquire an Englishness or a Frenchness or a European-ness that is more than half skin deep.
Ezra Pound
…catching a glimpse of his rather hippyish form in a mirror, he wonders at this atavism of apparel, is it an inversion of foetal ontogeny, in which the phenotype passes through previous fashion stages? Soon there will be gaiters and gloves…I will probably die, he thinks, clad in animal skins.
Will Self
Have you ever felt really close to someone? So close that you can’t understand why you and the other person have two separate bodies, two separate skins?
Nancy Garden
Who took away the part so essential to the whole Left you a hollow body Skin and bone.
Tracy Chapman
The vertical lines that run down his forearms are the most disturbing, thick and jagged as if someone took a razor to his skin. I wish I could run my fingers along them and remove the pain and memories that are attached to them.
Jessica Sorensen
How beautiful an old woman’s skin is! All those wrinkles!
Thomas Eakins
There are people who were gay and lived the gay lifestyle and aren’t anymore. I don’t know if that’s the similar situation or that’s the case for anyone that’s black. It’s a behavioral issue as opposed to a color of the skin issue, and that’s the diff for serving in the military.
Rick Santorum
I think that we pay much more attention to fashion and our hair, skin and foreheads, our abdominal muscles and shoes than what is happening in the world. We willingly take that ‘drug’ and go along with that.
Meryl Streep
I have huge admiration for people who think like the effective altruist, who try to rationally think about how they can change the world for the better, and who try not to be swayed by irrational considerations, such as skin color or whether or not someone lives in the same neighborhood.
Paul Bloom
Those people that have hardened to rejection or hardened to life in general, it’s pretty hard to feel them. You know, to look at their eyes on screen and feel them. I guess that’s specifically talking about actors, but I think that’s probably [true] in general. You want to keep your skin thin.
Emma Stone
It will be readily admitted that brown tints have never coursed beneath our skin; it will be discovered that yellow shines forth in our flesh, that red blazes, and that green, blue and violet dance upon it with untold charms, voluptuous and caressing.
Umberto Boccioni
His mouth is on me, his hands, I can’t wait and he’s moving, already, love, it’s been so long, I’m alive in my skin, again, arms around him, falling and water softly everywhere, never-ending.
Margaret Atwood
Before you write – remember that every speech has something of ‘you’ in the writing. Don’t take that away when you write. Be yourself. Be comfortable in your own skin.
Phil Collins
Metaphors get under your skin by ghosting right past the logical mind.
Jane Hirshfield
I cannot put this poison on my skin. I do not use anything synthetic.
Gisele Bundchen
Race is a universal flaw in humanity. So yes, I’ve been in many situations where I’ve felt like the outsider because of the color of my skin.
Jordan Peele
One thing I’ve learned is be comfortable in your skin, and more importantly, be comfortable in your shoes.
Octavia Spencer
Old school new school need to learn though I burn baby, burn like Disco Inferno Burn slow like blunts with ya-yo Peel more skins than Idaho potato
The Notorious B.I.G.
Gory stuff can be shocking but it doesn’t really scare me. I’d say the kind of stuff that gets under my skin is the unknown. You hear a knock behind a wall and you don’t know what it is. Is there something there or not?
Oren Peli
I keep wanting people to realize that there needs to be a tidal wave of peace and love. People should be treated with love and respect regardless of the color of their skin or their sexual preference. We need to keep saying that as much as we can and as loud as we can.
Jim James
Self-esteem is that deep-down inside the skin feeling you have of your own self-worth.
Denis Waitley
I think our skin clears up and we’re nicer when you are in love.
Nia Vardalos
A very common thing these days is people show up and they ask us in the band to sign with a Sharpie right on their skin and they go get it tattooed the next day. Then they’ll show up at another show and they’ll have their tattoo.
Jared Leto
The extraordinary is waiting quietly beneath the skin of all that is ordinary.
Mark Nepo
I stepped closer to him and lowered my voice. ‘If you could change one thing, what would it be?’ He pulled the sheep pendant from his pocket. A question filled his eyes. I held out my hand. Riley placed it in my palm and I curled my finger around the necklace, pressing the metal into my skin.
Maria V. Snyder
I’m just skin covering coffee and some real nervous teeth.
Bill Hicks
I much condole with you on your late loss… pains and diseases of the mind are only cured by Forgetfulness;–Reason but skins the wound, which is perpetually liable to fester again.
Erasmus Darwin
On ‘Skins,’ we only ever filmed for a couple of months in the summer. When I wasn’t on set, I was doing my normal things.
Kaya Scodelario
I think now that I’m in the autumn of my life, and I’m getting a chance of having an overview and looking at the shape of how things happen, when things happen, why things happen, I think it was fitting that I spent most of my early career doing mask work, because I just don’t think I was that comfortable in my own skin.
Ron Perlman
Abandonment doesn’t have the sharp but dissipating sting of a slap. It’s like a punch to the gut, bruising your skin and driving the precious air from your body.
Tayari Jones
People’s hands fascinate me. It’s tempting to look at a businessman’s left hand and see if there’s an indentation from a missing wedding ring. Or maybe there’s a tan line and the skin is pressed down where’s he’s worked a ring off his finger.
Benedict Cumberbatch
I want to make women laugh. I want to make them feel beautiful in their own skin. I want to empower them to use their voice and not apologize.
Amy Schumer
Beyond [Barack Obama] having made history as the first African-American president, I hope that he gets re-elected for what he does while in office, not for his skin color. I certainly believe he has the capacity.
Lenny Kravitz
What’s great about ‘Skins’ is that the characters are exactly like people around you.
Daniel Kaluuya
Just because we’re sisters under the skin doesn’t mean we’ve got much in common.
Angela Carter
Most of us in the media are, by and large, sentimental about our national identity, but comfortable enough in our skins as Indians, to be deeply self-critical. The problem arises when loyalty to India gets mixed up with loyalty to the government of the day.
Barkha Dutt
We are all brothers and sisters under the skin and above it . . . it’s super important that we stop lobbing bombs over the top of the wall and start trying to dismantle it, so that we can say ‘hi’ to whoever is on the other side, whether the divide is religious or nationalistic or politic or economic.
Roger Waters
There’s such a gulf between yourself and who you were then, but people speak to that other person and it answers; it’s like having a stranger as a house guest in your skin.
Barbara Kingsolver
Life is full of banana skins. You slip, you carry on.
Daphne Guinness
Worried about dry skin? Concerned about lines and wrinkles? Then visit a burns unit and get some perspective.
Shaun Micallef
The damage was permanent; there would always be scars. But even the angriest scars faded over time until it was difficult to see them written on the skin at all, and the only thing that remained was the memory of how painful it had been.
Jodi Picoult
I tell you what, I don’t like a hostile red skin any more than you do. And when they are hostile, I’ve fought ’em, hard as any man. But I never yet drew a bead on a squaw or papoose, and I despise the man who would.
Kit Carson
I notice if I’m too fat or if I’m too ugly or there’s skin hanging or whatever. When my clothes start not fitting, I get really self-conscious about what I eat.
Marina Abramovic
I put myself out there; it’s part of my job, and I get it: people will attack me. At first I was thrown off, but now I have a pretty thick skin about it.
Zooey Deschanel
To be a good shepherd is to shear the flock, not skin it!
My shoots are very much about skin, so I’m an exfoliating and moisturizing nut. I fly so much, so I take my makeup off as soon as I get on the airplane. I look at my watch every half hour and moisturize.
Chrissy Teigen
With throbbing veins and burning skin, eyes wild and heavy, thoughts hurried and disordered, he felt as though the light were a reproach, and shrunk involuntarily from the day as if he were some foul and hideous thing.
Charles Dickens
Man is a culture, nothing but a culture! Question your culture! Just like monkeys picking lice from their skin, get rid of the stupidities in your culture!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Youth, then, once ballyhooed as the epicenter of fun, hot dogs, hot sex, and marvelous dope-smoking good times, is now defined as follows: that period before death, characterized by smooth skin and ill-formed ideas.
Marilyn Suzanne Miller
When you’re younger, you don’t believe in it, but it’s really so important to stay out the of sun as much as you can. Like if you wanna get tan, you can get a spray tan and not get skin cancer.
Nina Agdal
With the early prototypes, I held the phone to my ear and my ear [would] dial the number. You have to detect all sorts of ear-shapes and chin shapes, skin colour and hairdo… that was one of just many examples where we really thought, perhaps this isn’t going to work.
Jonathan Ive
Greatness has nothing to do with diversity, skin color, race, ethnicity, nothing to do with it.
Rush Limbaugh
Sometimes you must shed your skin to save it.
Emma Donoghue
I want her to melt into me, like butter on toast. I want to absorb her and walk around for the rest of my days with her encased in my skin. I want.
Sara Gruen
There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic.
Diane Setterfield
Well-being is how I feel in my skin, not about how other people are looking at me and what they see… its what I feel like.
Josie Loren
Anyone who tries to keep track of what is happening in China is going to end up by wearing all the skin of his left ear from twirling around on it.
Robert Benchley
We’ve got a [Canadian] prime minister who seems to be intent on destroying our health system and education system. But I have gotten a thicker skin. I can get angry about these things without feeling like vomiting, if you know what I mean.
Jane Jacobs
Your father is a fool skin deep; but you are a fool to your very marrow.
George Bernard Shaw
You’ve got to be happy in your own skin.
Jada Pinkett Smith
‘Skins’ was never about sending a message. It was showing you everything there was and letting you make a decision.
Kaya Scodelario
The Indians the needed some food, and some skins for a roof. They only took what they needed, baby, millions of buffalo were the proof.
Ted Nugent
I still wrestle with the catharsis of acting. I don’t end up playing a lot of likable characters, so I find myself living in a lot of unlikable skin. As a result of that I don’t always feel good.
James Ransone
What acting means is that you’ve got to get out of your own skin.
Katharine Hepburn
I can’t see any difference in government between Bush and Obama apart from the color of their skin.
Jesse Ventura
The older you get, the more comfortable you get in your own skin. You find yourself.
I’ll usually run an ice-cube over my skin to close all the pores. That’s pretty much my daily routine.
I’m okay in my skin, you know… I’m okay with who I am.
Dana Plato
Milk is about helping guys feel good about their skin and relaxed about taking care of it.
Michael Klim
As soon as the seal was clear of the water, it reared up and its skin slipped down to the sand. What had been a seal was a white-skinned boy
George Mackay Brown
My grandmother is basically blind, but she can make out the lighter parts, like my skin and hair. She says, ‘I can see you, because you have no pants on.’ So I’ll continue to wear no pants so that my grandma can see me.
Lady Gaga
I realize that I live on the bubble of insanity. I feel the weight of human suffering, loneliness and despair on me all the time. It’s not getting easier; if anything, it’s always right on the edge of my skin.
Erwin McManus
I bite the skin on the side of my fingernails.
Sienna Miller
As a teen, I had no idea what the self was. Changing skin like a chameleon came naturally to me, but the self felt like a plastic chair in an airport where I’d have to sit and wait for the next radical character to define who I’d be that season. Acting grabbed me by the gut.
Julie Carmen
We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come. –
Joseph Campbell
Landscape is my religion. …God in a green legend, I lean over the pool In a testament of leaves. I dangle my twinkling mood Before me in a cool cave roofed with branches And floored with a skin of water.
Norman MacCaig
Evie didn’t mind yelling, but she hated feeling judged. It got under her skin and made her feel small and ugly and unfixable.
Libba Bray
Bosnia is under my skin. It’s the place you cannot leave behind. I was obsessed by the nightmare of it all; there was this sense of guilt, and an anger that has become something much deeper over these last years.
Paddy Ashdown
Making films is about having absolute and foolish confidence; the challenge for all of us is to have the heart of a poet and the skin of an elephant.
Mira Nair
When she listened to songs that she loved on the radio, something stirred inside her. A liquid ache spread under her skin, and she walked out of the world like a witch.
Arundhati Roy
Can anything good come of a backward way of thinking like judging someone based on skin color? No way.
Adam McKay
What comfort there is in the skin of someone you love!
Erich Maria Remarque
Comedy is helping a lot at the moment. It also seems to be getting under Trump’s skin and revealing a lot about the kind of thin-skinned fool that he is.
Sharon Horgan
The earth has a skin and that skin has diseases; one of its diseases is called man.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Old Camels carry young Camels skins to the Market.
George Herbert
I admit it: I am louder than the average human being and have no fear of speaking my mind. These traits don’t come from the color of my skin but from an unwavering belief in my own intelligence.
Michelle Obama
I feel weird if I can’t move my face, and that one time I overdid it, I felt trapped in my own skin.
Courteney Cox
I have campaigned all over the state of South Carolina. It is the friendliest state in the country. And truly here people judge you by the content of your character not the color of your skin.
Tim Scott
We feel cold, but we don’t mind it, because we will not come to harm. And if we wrapped up against the cold, we wouldn’t feel other things, like the bright tingle of the stars, or the music of the aurora, or best of all the silky feeling of moonlight on our skin. It’s worth being cold for that.
Philip Pullman
Less is more. I think that if you try to put too many beauty products on, you’re probably gonna get used to it. Your skin is not supposed to be covered with a bunch of stuff, so I think that less is definitely more.
Nina Agdal
‘Skins’ is about a group of teenagers in Bristol, and it’s all about what they get up to and all the different things they do. I think it’s a good show because it’s come from a very real place, and there’s a lot of young people involved in the writing.
Hannah Murray
I might have lost some skin, but I got kissed by a beautiful woman who was happy to see me. I gotta say that’s pretty epic in my book. Definitely not a worst-case day here.” – Sundown
Sherrilyn Kenyon
You are your father’s daughter,’ he said, the skin around his eyes tightening. ‘Trent is his father’s son. Apart, you are annoying. Together…you have the potential to be a problem.
Kim Harrison
The vampire bible, bound in human skin, written in blood, and full of prophecies that were never wrong. Trouble was, if you read the thing too long, it drove you nuts. Not “I’m having a bad day and feel bitchy” nuts or PMS nuts. “I think I’ll commit felony assault on my friends and rape my boyfriend” nuts.
MaryJanice Davidson
I like to dry brush which is really detoxifying for the skin. Exercise is also really important for me for balance and to get those endorphins going.
Gwyneth Paltrow
I try and stay out of the sun for the most part. I wear a hat. I play golf. And I wear a hat. But I’ve had no problem – no major problem – but certainly no problem with skin.
Donald Trump
Musically, he was like an old man in a boy’s skin.
Eric Clapton
My respect for human beings is based not on the colour of a man’s skin nor authority he may wield, but purely on merit.
Nelson Mandela
Sometimes when I travel from climate to climate, my skin can change very drastically because I go from hot to cold. I get dry like everybody else – from planes.
Shay Mitchell
Suddenly I had a flash of insight: I am a monster, I realized, a monster that wants to stalk through the woods, free and alone, and cannot even bear so much as the touch of a branch on its skin.
Marlen Haushofer
In a sense, my grandmother was living in the Iron Age. There was no system of writing among the nomads. Metal artifacts were rare and precious…. The first time she saw a white person my grandmother was in her thirties: she thought this person’s skin had burned off.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Wonder in everything No matter how great or small… Same thing that’s scrawled across the stars Is written under our skin… There’s a time to search for understanding Sometimes you just got to sing New horizons, new horizon within
David Gray
My tattoos are like a scrapbook of my life. Sometimes you don’t feel comfortable in your own skin, so covering it up with pictures helps
Frank Iero
No, not like this, when I have not seen you without your skin on, when I know nothing, when I am not safe. Not you, whose name all my nightmares know.
Catherynne M. Valente
guileless and without vanity,we were still in love with ourselves then. We felt comfortable in our own skins, enjoyed the news that our senses released to us, admired our dirt, cultivated our scars, and could not comprehend this unworthiness.
Toni Morrison
The Stormlight rising from his exposed skin was enough to illuminate the chasm, and it cast shadows on the walls as he ran. Those seemed to become figures, crafted by the bones and branches stretching from the heaps on the ground. Bodies and souls. His movement made the shadows twist, as if turning to regard him.
Brandon Sanderson
Other animals ran only when they had a reason, but the horse would run for no reason whatever, as if to run out of his own skin
Rabindranath Tagore
Part of you is the wind,” he murmured. “Oui, that is true. But even the wind sometimes rests.” Shaking her head, she slid her hand around the back of his neck, soaking in the intrinsically male heat of his skin. “Then consider me an endless storm.
Nalini Singh
My skin doesn’t look as good when I’m not eating enough fruits and vegetables, so I try to eat plenty.
Joanne Froggatt
I hardly wear any makeup. TV and film makeup is very heavy, so it’s nice to give my skin a break when I’m not filming. And I’m really grungy, probably too much so. Although when I go out, I love to dress very glamorous and quite sexy.
Nell Hudson
What do you want?” “You,” he said, his voice lowering an octave. “I want you, Dutch, body and soul. I want you in my bed every night. I want you there when I wake up in the morning. I want your clothes strung across my apartment and your scent on my skin.
Darynda Jones
All the beauty of the world, ’tis but skin deep.
Ralph Venning
How could someone possibly be that beautiful? She wondered for the hundred thousandth time. What higher power orchestrated such a perfect union of genes? Who decided that one single solitary soul deserved skin like that? It was so fundamentally unfair.(Chasing Harry Winston)
Lauren Weisberger
… all ugliness passes, and beauty endures, excepting of the skin.
Edith Sitwell
It is not so much light that falls over the world extended by your body its suffocating snow, as brightness, pouring itself out of you, as if you were burning inside. Under your skin the moon is alive.
Pablo Neruda
I think great acting is about inhabiting a skin and transforming yourself.
David Ayer
How is it right to slip free of an old skin and walk away from the scene of the crime? We came, we saw, we took away and we left behind, we must be allowed our anguish and our regrets.
Barbara Kingsolver
Scrape the surface of language, and you will behold interstellar space and the skin that encloses it.
Velimir Khlebnikov
Painted faces, sun burnt skin, fixed expressions, smiles worn thin.
Chaka Khan
The mirror of your health is your skin. If you drink, it shows in your face; if you eat the wrong foods, you have pimples. If you take care of your food and you lead a healthy life, your skin will look wonderful.
Sophia Loren
I was turned down by every record label in L.A. Perseverance is three quarters of the game. Talent’s only a quarter. Being able to withstand the word ‘no’ over and over can build you a pretty tough skin. I knew if I just kept at it, at the very least I’d get better at my craft.
Sheryl Crow
It’s hard… to shake off something that’s already under your skin.
Thomas Harris
The central attitudes driving the Water Torturer are:
You are crazy. You fly off the handle over nothing.
I can easily convince other people that you’re the one who is messed up.
As long as I’m calm, you can’t call anything I do abusive, no matter how cruel.
I know exactly how to get under your skin.
Lundy Bancroft
Desiring another person is perhaps the most risky endeavor of all. As soon as you want somebody—really want him—it is as though you have taken a surgical needle and sutured your happiness to the skin of that person, so that any separation will now cause a lacerating injury.
Elizabeth Gilbert
These stories about my intellectual capacity really get under my skin. You know, for a while I even thought my staff believed it. There on my schedule first thing every morning it said, ‘Intelligence Briefing.’
George W. Bush
When the shriveled skin of the ordinary is stuffed out with meaning, it satisfies the senses amazingly.
Virginia Woolf
I’m not one of those James Joyce intellectuals who can stand back and look at the whole edifice… It was a slow process for me to just crawl out of it, like a snake leaving his skin behind.
Frank McCourt
That’s what I do. I get in and get under people’s skin and all that stuff. But you will remember me – and that’s all that matters.
Shaquille O’Neal
The existing phrasebooks are inadequate. They are well enough as far as they go, but when you fall down and skin your leg they don’t tell you what to say.
Mark Twain
My skin is more beautiful than yours. I would be quite more popular in jail if I so chose.
Gene Simmons
I slather Egyptian Magic cream all over my face on overnight flights to keep my skin hydrated.
Kate Hudson
Her skin was white as leprosy.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
With the red hair, you get the white skin; it’s a package deal. The cons are that you never look particularly attractive on the beach. The pros are in a softly lit room, you look pretty.
Marcia Cross
If zipper catches skin, I’ll know I had it out when I should a kept it in.
Alice Cooper
Through music you learn not to care about the color of someone’s skin.
Vince Gill
The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die. As well the minds which are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be mind.

Kaya Scodelario
Years wrinkle the skin. Giving up wrinkles the soul.
Douglas MacArthur
Race and sexual preferences are two different things. One is a behavior-related and preference-related and one is something inherently – skin color, something obvious, that kind of stuff.
James Lankford
Teen Moms! I started watching them like the first two seasons, and I stopped. I stopped because they are too young. I feel sorry for them. And I didnt watch that show Hoarders. That thing would made my skin crawl.
NeNe Leakes
And tonight our skin, our bones, that have survived our fathers, will meet, delicate in the hold, fastened together in an intricate lock. Then one of us will shout, “My need is more desperate!” and I will eat you slowly with kisses even though the killer in you has gotten out.
Anne Sexton
It was just the sort of yatch you’d expect a rock promoter to have. Mirrored ceilings, marble, Jacuzzis and leopard-skin everything, it made the merely vulgar seem commonplace.
Pamela Anderson
As if you could pick in love, as if it were not a lightning bolt that splits your bones and leaves you staked out in the middle of the courtyard. (…) You don’t pick out the rain that soaks you to the skin when you come out of a concert.
Julio Cortazar
Sure, being good at your job is really important, but in acting, so much of the decision’s already made the minute you walk in the room because they’re like, ‘His hair’s good or she’s got the right skin color’ or whatever. It’s so random, but it’s so physically oriented.
Rashida Jones
‘Skins’ was a fun role and I enjoyed it.
John Bishop
… Rebel against the flesh and bone,
The word of the blood, the wily skin,
And the maggot no man can slay.
Dylan Thomas
My skin still crawls if you call me a movie star. I get embarrassed. I think, don’t be ridiculous. Maybe it’s because I’m British. To me, Julia Roberts, that’s a movie star. But when people do call me one, that, I think, is an enormous compliment but, my God, is that a responsibility!
Kate Winslet
Actions speak louder than words, and a smile says, ‘I like you. You make me happy. I am glad to see you.’ That is why dogs make such a hit. They are so glad to see us that they almost jump out of their skins. So, naturally, we are glad to see them.
Dale Carnegie
When she looked in the mirror these days, she saw someone she didn’t recognize…She saw an old woman trying to be beautiful, her skin dry and her wrinkles like cracks. She looked like a very well-dressed winter apple.
Sarah Addison Allen
When a child is born into this world it has no concept of the tone the skin is living in.
Neneh Cherry
A great Dermalogica facial every few weeks, and lots of sleep over the weekend are essentials. I also drink lots of water which really helps to hydrate the skin and keep it looking fresh.
Poppy Delevingne
Breaking out is following your bliss pattern, quitting the old place, starting your hero journey, following your bliss. You throw off yesterday as the snake sheds its skin.
Joseph Campbell
I have had wrinkles on my forehead and my smile line since I was a kid. I see them in my own kids. I know what they’re going to look like. So it’s kind of like that’s my personality. I feel the older you get, too, the more confident you become just in your own skin.
Faith Hill
I use products from my dermatologist but the best things you can do for your skin, are not smoke always use sunscreen and drink a lot of water.
Sela Ward
You know, when you go to high school or, you know, when kids are younger and there’s not an understanding of differences. But I built up a very strong, thick skin.
Alexander Wang
Above us, the wind blew and the branching shadows rearranged themselves on our skin. Gus squeezed my hand. “It is a good life, Hazel Grace.
John Green
There’s a power that comes with silence. I had grown to fear the unsaid thing. So it felt like a release to say it-to admit that the risk wasn’t just inside our walls-it was inside my skin. I was willing to claw, scratch, and bleed until I’d found it.
Ally Carter
My act is sort of improvisational. I have a skeleton in my head, but no fat or skin on it.
Paula Poundstone
Our skin is what stands between us and the world.
Diane Ackerman
The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births.
John Holdren
That’s good advice for any young person to remember who aspires to leadership in corporate or public life. Develop a thick skin when it comes to the press. Remember you’re never as bad-or as good-as the press says you are.
William Schreyer
In order to achieve victory you must place yourself in your opponent’s skin. If you don’t understand yourself, you will lose one hundred percent of the time. If you understand yourself, you will win fifty percent of the time. If you understand yourself and your opponent, you will win one hundred percent of the time.
Tsutomu Ohshima
But this is Miami, you can’t come to Miami and not show any skin. You gotta show something. If you’re all covered up in this heat, you’re gonna make me pass out out just to look at you. It’s sweaty in Miami – but the diamonds will keep me cool.
Lil’ Kim
Feel the rain on your skin, no one else can feel it for you.
Natasha Bedingfield
…and the lamp having at last resigned itself to death. There was nothing now but firelight in the room, And every time a flame uttered a gasp for breath It flushed her amber skin with the blood of its bloom.
Charles Baudelaire
I have two Filipino nannies who have British passport and not me. I don’t need British passport. When you were running around in an animal skin, my ancestors were building the pyramids.
Mohamed Al-Fayed
I’m not the classic type – fair skin, very beautiful women of a classic type, I’m talking about now.
Debra Wilson
I would say I spend about an hour a day cleansing and moisturising after all of the make-up I’ve worn on jobs, and on weekends I tend to go bare-faced to give my skin a bit of a break.
Poppy Delevingne
Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly lies to the bone. Beauty dies and fades away, but ugly holds its own! Create and cultivate Inner Beauty that never fades away but grows and matures with Time!
Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Mark Twain
Forensics had taught her that scars left tissue much tougher than skin.
Alane Ferguson
You would think that Freddy Couples-Nick Price would be the team to beat, but I’ll tell you in skins, it’s a matter of just hitting it at the right time.
Fuzzy Zoeller
Each of us is a tiny being, permitted to ride on the outermost skin of one of the smaller planets for a few dozen trips around the local star.
Carl Sagan
The heart never knows the colour of the skin
Chief Dan George
Is it my fault if I do not look like an English girl and I do not talk like a Nigerian? Well, who says an English girl must have skin as pale as the clouds that float across her summers? Who says a Nigerian girl must speak in fallen English…?
Chris Cleave
Then I placed the blade next to the skin on my palm. A tingle arched across my scalp. The floor tipped up at me and my body spilled away. Then I was on the ceiling looking down, waiting to see what would happen next.
Patricia McCormick
If the nature of human experience changes with the color of a man’s skin, then the racists have been right all along.
Athol Fugard
You have to work out where your place is. And who you are. But we’re all spirit. That’s all we are, we’re just walking dressed up in a suit of skin, and we’re going to leave that behind.
Bob Dylan
Against Him those women sin who torment their skin with potions, stain their cheeks with rouge and extend the line of their eyes with black coloring. Doubtless they are dissatisfied with God’s plastic skill. In their own persons they convict and censure the Artificer of all things.
My biggest advice for girls – and this is something that I wish I could have known when I was younger – is to have thick skin. It’s something that you definitely develop when you get older, but when I first started, I was so obsessed with pleasing everybody. I wanted everybody to like me and to like my songs.
Kate Voegele
It is very important not to become hard. The artist must always have one skin too few in comparison to other people, so you feel the slightest wind.
Shusha Guppy
‘Skins’ was the university for me. It was the best years of my life, really. We were all just a bunch of friends.
Kaya Scodelario
You gotta be comfortable in your own skin, man. I am, yaknow. Like I said, I am what I am, b. I’m not a gangster, namean. I ain’t no killer. Have I used a gun before? Yeah but, just because you use a gun, don’t mean you a killer or a gangster. It means you a man.
Sean Price
[As an actor] you’re looking to crawl into an anonymous fictional person’s skin, but then you have the ironic obligation to promoting the movie in such a public way that it almost undermines the initial intention of going under the radar.
Jesse Eisenberg
It is still your work or role that finally gives you your definition in our society, and the thousands upon thousands of people who I believe are like me are those who have never found the professional skin to fit the riot in their souls .
Seymour Krim
Behind you swiftly the figure comes softly,
The spot on your skin is a shocking disease.
W. H. Auden
On vacations: We hit the sunny beaches where we occupy ourselves keeping the sun off our skin, the saltwater off our bodies, and the sand out of our belongings.
Erma Bombeck
A question I often get is, “How do you maintain your sanity with so much happening all around you?” I think I developed a certain mental toughness that is required in the business. You have to have a thick skin and a brass bottom, because you’re going to kicked a lot.
Jim Clyburn
My great grandma always told me to drink a lot of milk because it’s good for the skin.
Barbara Palvin
and her skin shone luminous and impossibly pale, as if it drank light from the moon.
Madeline Miller
I really do. I don’t see it as a kind of elite experience – it’s our biggest organ. We need to see a dermatologist and have them really look at our skin and figure out what’s going on.
June Diane Raphael
The best fragrance is the scent of water, the fragrance of dew and rain falling on plants. Water is the essential element, a source of life and energy. A perfume that, like a garment, moves to suit the woman, her skin. A perfume that embraces a woman.
Issey Miyake
My whole life, I’ve wanted to feel comfortable in my skin. It’s the most liberating thing in the world.
Drew Barrymore
The mercury light doesn’t show red. It makes the blood in your skin look blue-black. But see how splendidly it brings out the green in the plants.
Charles Proteus Steinmetz
From a writer’s standpoint, each character and story presents its own unique challenges and delights. I’m deeply curious about all of my characters, and I love peeling away their layers to see what’s underneath their skin, or secreted deep within their hearts.
Tina St. John
Even if you can sing or even if you can write a song, it takes a lot of determination, it takes some kind of thick skin, because you got to persevere despite the fact that people tell you you shouldn’t do this or you shouldn’t do that or you’re not good enough or your style’s too different. I’ve heard all of that stuff.
John Legend
my poems covered the bare places in my childhood like the fine, new skin under a scab that hasn’t yet fallen off completely.
Tove Ditlevsen
In the future, we will play games while floating naked in a tank of warm, sensory-depriving gelatin. Games will be distributed chemically, into the gelatin, and absorbed into the player’s skin. The gelatin will be Lingonberry-flavored, and the games will encourage good citizenship.
Tim Schafer
Through many afflictions we must enter into the kingdom of God … It is folly to think to steal to heaven with a whole skin.
Samuel Rutherford
The term ‘celebrity’ makes my skin crawl.

She has enough black eyeliner on to outline a corpse, and her skin’s so pale she looks like she’s just broken dawn.
John Green
A thick skin is a gift from God.
Konrad Adenauer
We do not know and cannot tell when the spirit is with us. Great talent or small, it makes no difference. We are caught within our own skins, our own sensibilities; we never know if our technique has been adequate to the vision.
Madeleine L’Engle
It’s funny that all these goths paint their faces with such white make-up and that is the actual colour of my skin, I am that pale!
Kelly Osbourne
One of the amazing things about Spider-Man is that you don’t see skin colour when he’s in the suit. You don’t see any religious beliefs. A hero is a hero, whether you’re a man, woman, gay, lesbian, straight, black, white or red all over ― it doesn’t matter.
Andrew Garfield
If the lot of you survives, Curran will fray the skin off your backs,’ Doolittle said. ‘That’s what I always love about you, Doctor.’ Raphael grinned. ‘You’re a cup-halfway-full kind of guy. All flowers and sunshine.

Khalil Gibran
Something stirred beneath my skin, some being inside I’d only suspected existed, demon or angel, I couldn’t say.
Ellen Hopkins
There is nothing better than picking up sun-warmed tomatoes and smelling them, feeling them and scrutinizing their shiny skins for imperfections, dreaming of ways to serve them.
Jose Andres
There are two things that really get under Gary Neville’s skin: scousers and policemen.
Rio Ferdinand
I hate skin; I hate bones and bodies. I want to curl up inside of him and be carried there forever.
Lauren Oliver
The fact is that the British Museum had a complete specimen of a dodo in their collection up until the 18th century – it was actually mummified, skin and all – but in a fit of space-saving zeal, they actually cut off the head and they cut off the feet and they burned the rest in a bonfire.
Adam Savage
He laughed. The laugh could strip the skin off an elephant in seconds.
Lilith Saintcrow
If one wants to be an ox one can easily turn one’s back on hum suffering and look after one’s own skin.
Karl Marx
As I get older, my skin shows more of how I am feeling, like a mirror. If I am stressed, or not getting enough sleep, I see it in my face right away.
Joanne Froggatt
Caffeine dehydrates the body and speeds up the aging of the skin and kidneys.
Ann Louise Gittleman
There’s blood beneath every layer of skin.
Alexander McQueen
An Indian’s dress of deer skins, which is wet a hundred times upon his back, dries soft; and his lodge also, which stands in the rains, and even through the severity of winter, is taken down as soft and as clean as when it was first put up.
George Catlin
Caleb and Tris exchange a look. The skin on his face and on her knuckles is nearly the same colour, purple-blue-green, as if drawn with ink. This is what happens when siblings collide – they injure each other in the same way.
Veronica Roth
Staph lives on skin. Thats the reason why many infections start as a boil.
Anthony S. Fauci
I have believed for a long time that human nature is a reciprocity of what is inside the skin and what is outside: that it is definitely not “rolled up inside us” but our way of being one with our fellows and our world. I call this field theory.
Gardner Murphy
Everything that belonged to her husband made her weep again: his tasseled slippers, his pajamas under the pillow, the space of his absence in the dressing table mirror, his own odor on her skin. A vague thought made her shudder: “The people one loves should take all their things with them when they die.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
I’m mesmerized by the way his fingers move confidently along her skin, as though her body is his to reat and touch and tend to. She was mine before she was yours: The words are there, unexpectedly, surging from my throat to my tongue. I swallow them back.
Lauren Oliver
We think that diamonds are very important, gold is very important, all these minerals are very important. We call them precious minerals, but they are all forms of the soil. But that part of this mineral that is on top, like it is the skin of the earth, that is the most precious of the commons.
Wangari Maathai
In ‘Futurama,’ the skin color is no longer yellow. They have actually evolved to cartoon skin tone. But they still have four fingers.
Matt Groening
What I do not like, the kind of high-resolution cameras, 4K, 6K, for shooting dialogue, for having faces and close-ups of actors, and you see every single pore in the skin.
Werner Herzog
We all have a lot of people inside us, yet we get to live only one life. Fiction lets us slip into someone else’s skin, so to speak. That’s why we read novels, and also why we write them – to experience more life, through imagination.
Steven Saylor
The body does not end with our skin – it extends into time, into space, and into other people.
Stanley Krippner
If I describe a person’s physical appearance in my writing, which I often do, especially in fiction, I never say someone is “black” or “white.” I may describe the color of their skin – black eyes, beige skin, blue eyes, dark skin, etc. But I’m not talking about race.
Jamaica Kincaid
Fox is notorious for having a very thick skin about taking shots at themselves.
Seth MacFarlane
People are like lice – they get under your skin and bury themselves there. You scratch and scratch until the blood comes, but you can’t get permanently deloused.
Henry Miller
Try to get inside the skins of others. Think how they feel, how they react, and guide your own conduct by that.
Helen Valentine
In some parallel universe, there was a Gansey who could tell Blue that he found the ten inches of her bare calves far more tantalizing than the thirteen cubic feet of bare skin Orla sported. But in this universe, that was Adam’s job. He was in a terrible mood.
Maggie Stiefvater
Rents once sais, thirs nothin like a darker skin tone tae increase the vigilance ay the police n the magistrates: too right.
Irvine Welsh
I had been with a guy for seven years and I was done with that. I wanted to reinvent my whole life and change my hair – I’d had brown, straight extensions forever – and I just wanted to get rid of that, to shed skin, and really just be independent.
Jillian Hervey
The colors of living things begin to fade with the last breath, and the soft, springy skin and supple muscle rot within weeks. But the bones sometimes remain, faithful echoes of the shape, to bear some last faint witness to the glory of what was.
Diana Gabaldon
The sad truth is that mass migration, whatever the colour of the skins of those involved, upsets and worries indigenous people, especially the poorest.
Peter Hitchens
It is not our sexual preferences, the color of our skin, the language we speak, nor the religion we practice that creates friction, hatred and wars amongst in society. It is our words and the words of our leaders that can create that disparity.
Yehuda Berg
I’m lying in my bed, blanket is warm, this body will never keep me safe from harm. I still feel your hair, black ribbons of coal. Touch my skin to keep me whole. If only you’d come back to me. To feel you at my side, wouldn’t need no Mojo Pin to keep me satisfied.
Jeff Buckley

One hundred years ago, the slave was freed. One hundred years later, the Negro remains in bondage to the color of his skin.
Lyndon B. Johnson
The finest clothing made is a person’s own skin, but, of course, society demands something more than this.
Mark Twain
It makes me furious to hear haters of all skin colors – especially Christian, Jewish, and Muslim fundamentalists – deride other people because of their different beliefs and lifestyles.
Rita Dove
The majority of Latin actresses in Hollywood were always playing either spitfires or maids. Now here is a woman who comes in and does leads opposite white people and black people and other Spanish people, and she’s comfortable in her skin? Gasp! How dare she?
Rosie Perez
I had an idea for a story about a young woman who was living with people who were different, not just superficially different – such as hair colour, or eye colour, or skin colour – but different in some significant way.
Jean M. Auel
The night is a skin pulled over the head of day that the day may be in torment.
Djuna Barnes
You hold on to old experiences: injuries, injustices, and great love affairs, too. And you hold them in your joints and your organs, and wear them on your skin.
Ann Brashares
A thug is someone who stands on his own. He lives by the decisions he makes and accepts the consequences. A thug is comfortable in his own skin. I wear mine like a glove.
Trick Daddy
The way he kissed me felt like a brand. Like he was tattooing himself under my skin.
Tammara Webber
Care not what they say about the color of your skin let the brilliant light of your soul blind them.
Michael Dolan
I imagined that if the surface of the package imitated the colour and texture of the fruit skin, then the object would reproduce the feeling of the real skin.
Naoto Fukasawa
Barack and I have been in the public eye for many years now, and we’ve developed a thick skin along the way. When you’re out campaigning, there will always be criticism. I just take it in stride, and at the end of the day, I know that it comes with the territory.
Michelle Obama
The snake that cannot shed its skin perishes.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Be patient. Your skin took a while to deteriorate. Give it some time to reflect a calmer inner state. As one of my friends states on his Facebook profile: “The true Losers in Life, are not those who Try and Fail, but those who Fail to Try.”
Jess C Scott
After claws and feathers, he took skin and bone, shaped it like an hour glass and made the angels moan.
Elton John
A church that doesn’t provoke any crises, a gospel that doesn’t unsettle, a word of God that doesn’t get under anyone’s skin, a word of God that doesn’t touch the real sin of the society in which it is being proclaimed — ​what gospel is that?
Oscar Romero
Where people really base their principles has nothing to do with the color of someone’s skin, it has to do with money and their class.
Zoe Saldana
It’s not difficult for me to stay healthy. I like healthy food. It’s also become a lifestyle for me and I need a certain fitness level to be able to travel and have good skin and nails. If I ate worse then it would be difficult for me to keep up and it also wouldn’t be so good for my looks either.
Heidi Klum
Ezra Klein gets under my skin. He seems to spout the party line.
Mickey Kaus
I don’t think about being beautiful or not being beautiful. … It’s more about feeling confident inside your own skin really and thinking about yourself as little as possible.
Cate Blanchett
Beauty is but skin deep, ugly to the bone. And when beauty fades away, ugly claims its own.
Dorothy West
That’s what I mean by being bilingual: comfortable in your skin, comfortable with all parts of who you are.

Jeaniene Frost

Maryam d’Abo
My style is streamlined, sophisticated and simple, so I usually go for a dress. No matching involved. I am bad at matching! I like easy and when you’re done, it looks like a second skin. I wear dresses every day for that reason. It’s easy!
Hoda Kotb
The revolution has overthrown the monarchy, true! But perhaps this means that the revolution simply has driven the skin disease inside the organism.
Maxim Gorky
They tied me back together, but they didn’t use double knots. My insides are draining out of the fault lines in my skin, I can feel it, but every time I check the bandages, they’re dry.
Laurie Halse Anderson
Depending on the season, between 20 and 30 percent of my collections contain some sort of eco or sustainable element, whether it’s a beautiful organic fabric or a natural dye. And obviously I don’t use animal skins or fur of any kind.
Stella McCartney
I want to be inside you so badly, Grace,” he whispered. “I want to feel your legs wrapped around me, feel your breasts against my chest, hear you moaning as I make slow, sweet love to you. I want your smell on my body, your breath on my skin.
Sherrilyn Kenyon
You can shear a sheep a hundred times, but you can skin it only once.
Amarillo Slim
I distinguish sentiment from sentimentality. Sentimentality makes your skin crawl. It’s like too much sugar. But, sentiment is a great feeling.
Josh Radnor
You have to develop a very thick skin.
“Godling? Demigod?” Lysis nearly howled. “You’d be beaten black and blue in Thebes, and staked out overnight for claims like that. In Sparta, the secret police would ambush you, violate you, skin you alive and use your skull for a drinking cup.”
Janet Morris
Could people be trained to be less gullible? Or are you as stuck with gullibility as you are with skin colour?
Keith Henson
The heart lies and the head plays tricks on us, but the eyes see true. Look with your eyes. Hear with your ears. Taste with your mouth. Smell with your nose. Feel with your skin. Then comes the thinking, afterward, and in a way knowing the truth.
George R. R. Martin
It’s a sin problem, not a skin problem.
Benjamin Watson
I see blindness more as an ability and sight more as a disability because there are some people with sight who tend to judge others by what they see on the outside but I don’t see that. I don’t see the skin color, the hair style or the clothing people wear; I only see that which is within a person.
Patrick Henry Hughes
My all-time favorite skin cream is from Poland. Its called Eva Natura with Polish herbs, including rosemary. It smells wonderful and is soothing and comforting.
Dagmara Dominczyk
My mom didn’t use face cream, like, nothing at all. She’s got great skin and looks very youthful.
Lara Stone
Mars still remains the astrobiology community’s number one choice for ‘nearest rock with life,’ but there are many researchers who argue that the moons of Jupiter are better bets. In particular, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto are all thought to hide vast oceans of liquid water beneath their icy, outer skins.
Seth Shostak
every move of his body sent ripples along those lean muscles. his flawless crystal skin practically dared people to see ifit felt as good as it loked – which it did.
Jeaniene Frost
President George W. Bush won reelection in 2004 largely because he was seen as comfortable in his own skin, while rival John Kerry was viewed as a flip-flopping opportunist.
Ron Fournier
Being a mom changes your life. It actually has made me become more comfortable in my own skin and my own body because it’s such a growth and a learning lesson.
Christina Aguilera
I want people to feel happy in their own skins and feel accepted by society.
Jazz Jennings
The sky is dark. But to understand something is to give light. Those who deny liberty to the slaves may have white skins, but their consciences are blacker than the skin of the Negro.
Roman Baldorioty de Castro
The girl dreams she is dangerously ill. Suddenly birds come out of her skin and cover her completely … Swarms of gnats obscure the sun, the moon, and all the stars except one. That one start falls upon the dreamer.
Carl Jung
My thoughts took frantic flight, wanting to escape this prison, and seek out the wind so it could fan my hair and sting my skin, and make me feel alive again.
Virginia C. Andrews
In Kamby Bolongo Mean River damage and delusion walk hand in hand, and everything we think we know is gradually called into question. Reading like a cross between Samuel Beckett’s ‘The Calmative’ and Gordon Lish’s Dear Mr. Capote, Robert Lopez’s new novel gets under your skin and latches on.
Brian Evenson
Skins may differ, but affection
Dwells in white and black the same.

Eddie Murphy
I’m not too big on moisturisers and fancy skin products. I keep my grooming regime nice and simple.
Shaun White
Through the dark days of legalized segregation and on into the civil rights era, jazz shone as a beacon for achieving interracial respect and understanding. It seemed as if the dream of a color-blind society was within reach in the jazz world, where musicians were judged on merit and not skin color.
Randy Sandke
She was battered and beaten up, and not smiling this time. Liesel could see it on her face. Blood leaked from her nose and licked at her lips. Her eyes had blackened. Cuts had opened up and a series of wounds were rising to the surface of her skin. All from the words. From Liesel’s words.
Markus Zusak
Now that I am an adult, I’m very comfortable in my own skin. I’m a lot more settled down and I learnt to just be comfortable with where I’m at, rather than always wanting to be somewhere ahead of where I am.
Brooke Fraser
Without hurting anybody, we all tend to laugh at others’ discomfort. When someone slips on a banana skin and falls it’s funny.
Shahrukh Khan
One must know the so-called ‘lesson of a downpour. A man, caught in a sudden rain en route, dashes along the road not to get wet or drenched. Once one takes it for granted that in rain he naturally gets wet, he can be in a tranquil frame of mind even when soaked to the skin. This lesson applies to everything.
Yamamoto Tsunetomo
Basting is evil. Basting does nothing for the meat. Why? Skin. Skin is designed to keep stuff out of the bird, so basting just lets heat out of the oven. That means the turkey will take longer to cook… so don’t touch that door!
Alton Brown
As readers, we have gone from learning a precious craft whose secret was held by a jealous few, to taking for granted a skin that has become subordinate to principles of mindless financial profit or mechanical efficiency, a skill for which governments care almost nothing.
Alberto Manguel
The skin is a true symbol of our health because it’s the last place to get nutrition and if you can drive all those nutrients all the way through to the skin then you know it’s gotten everywhere else too and that’s something that we all recognise.
David Wolfe
I think just having smooth skin is so great because when you get your summer tan, you don’t have to do anything. It’s just soft and smooth.
Gigi Hadid
I love new cities, and if I haven’t travelled for a month, the need to go somewhere starts to gets under my skin.
Adelaide Clemens
I protect my skin with sunscreen and am religious about keeping my face moisturized and properly protected all day, so I also use a face lotion with SPF 30.

He finds his fellow guilty of a skin
Not color’d like his own, and having pow’r
T’ enforce the wrong, for such a worthy cause
Dooms and devotes him as his lawful prey.
William Cowper
Those who have never worked nude outdoors just can’t imagine how much better a breeze feels on their skin than an item of sweaty clothing.
Ben Miller
I’m not a dermatologist, but I had someone explain it to me, and I’ve seen the effect on my own skin over the years. So I feel like we need to protect our faces, especially those of us who live in Southern California, from this goddamn sun that’s on us all day.
June Diane Raphael
Folklore is the perfect second skin. From under its hide, we can see all the shimmering, shadowy uncertainties of the world.
Jane Yolen
If any man claims the Negro should be content… let him say he would willingly change the color of his skin and go to live in the Negro section of a large city. Then and only then has he a right to such a claim.
Robert Kennedy
The self is an oral society in which the present is constantly running a dialogue with the past and the future inside of one skin.
David Antin

Kiera Cass
You’re my change of skin / my summer-winter-fall / I spring to follow you / this loss is beautiful.
Maggie Stiefvater
I’m pretty blessed when it comes to clear skin. I owe that to being Cape Verdian. My whole family has great skin. My grandfather is 80 but doesn’t look a day over 50. And we all love the sun, too, so blessed is an understatement!
Amber Rose
What price would God demand from the churches for having the audacity to lighten the color of his son’s skin, and straighten out his nappy hair?
Dick Gregory
Fiction is a sort of inter-human magic, allowing you to travel into a scene and feel it tingle on your skin.
Barbara Kingsolver
As from a star I saw, coldly and soberly, the separateness of everything. I felt the wall of my skin; I am I. That stone is a stone. My beautiful fusion with the things of this world was over.
Sylvia Plath
I want to kiss her without counting the seconds. I want to hold her so long that I get to know her skin. I want, I want, I want.
David Levithan

Natalie Portman
Her skin tasted expensive.
Jenny Downham
I couldn’t see who swam in the darkness, who wore shadows like a second skin.
Rachel Vincent
Hollywood is ten million dollars worth of intricate and high ingenious machinery functioning elaborately to put skin on baloney.
George Jean Nathan
I suddenly remember something I’ve been told about fear. That amid a hail of machine gun fire you notice the existence of your skin.
Marguerite Duras
Life is just like a book. Only after you’ve read it do you know how it ends. It is when we are at the end of life that we know how our life ran. Mine, until now, has been black. As black as my skin. Black as the garbage dump where I live.
Carolina Maria de Jesus
the darkness is a cresting wave. It sweeps me up out of my body until I float among the stars, those tine bright pores on the sky’s skin. If only I could pass through them, I would end up on the other side, the right side, shadowless, perfectly illuminated, beyond the worries of this mundane world
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Personal prejudice: Hispanic and Latino women with blond hair look like hookers to me, no matter how clean or cute they are. Somehow those skin tones that look so good with dark, dark hair just don’t work for me with lighter shades.
John Byrne
I have the thickest skin of anyone you’ll ever meet. No one can say anything about me I haven’t heard a million times before.
Kelly Brook
Not everything about me is cute.” “That’s true, some things are cute. The rest are sexy. Astonishing, agonizingly sexy. It’s a wonder I can get anything done at all, when all I ever think about is the way your lips taste or how your fingertips feel on my skin or how your legs are…” “Adrian, shut up.
Richelle Mead
we shed the skins of who we used to be!
Eric Jerome Dickey
It rubs the lotion on its skin. It does this whenever it is told.
Thomas Harris
I’m not going to play a racial game. With me, you’re going to meet a guy named Shelby Steele, and you will have to get to know me as an individual. The color of my skin won’t tell you anything. I think there’s more and more of that in America.
Shelby Steele
I was looking for someone to formulate a skin care line I could use.
Connie Sellecca
The Japanese are a disease of the skin. The Communists are a disease of the heart.
Chiang Kai-shek
Filming is long – you get very tired, and your skin breaks out and you get lumps and bumps. It’s easier if you’re allowed to have bags under your eyes.
Shirley Henderson
The Lord has never indicated that black skin came because of being less faithful. Now, the Indian; we know why he has changed, don’t we? The Book of Mormon tells us that; and he has a dark skin, but he has promise there that through faithfulness, that they all again become a white and delightsome people.
LeGrand Richards
On TV people look at your hair and then they look at your skin, and then they look at your clothes, and by the time they’re listening to what you’re saying, you’re off the screen.
Douglas Coupland
If a car comes past me in a traffic jam with a boom box going, I jump out of my skin. Those big booming basses. I’m just more sensitive to noise these days.
George Harrison
The metaphysics of substance. The strange feeling which comes over us when we sense: this is skin – this is bone – all in a single vision that is completely unearthly. The dreaminess of our existence mixed at the same time with the indescribably sweet illusion of reality.
Max Beckmann
[On journalists:] … however lyingly libellous they may be: nobody can seriously hurt the reputation of a Great person. If he is hurt: he is not Great. They can but scratch at his skin with their mice nails.
Caitlin Thomas
I grew up around hunters. I love guns, bows, arrows, compasses and binoculars. I don’t do any of that stuff, I just like the stuff. I shot one animal, in my life, and I didn’t like it. If I had to skin an animal to eat it, I’d probably eat vegetables.
Tim Allen
First, I eat healthy; it comes from the inside out. If you eat right, your skin, hair, nails will look good. The same if you have negative thoughts – they can give you a bad look, too; we reflect what we eat and think. We also taste and smell what we eat. Being happy and doing what I love really reflects.
Kate del Castillo
The small seed of despair cracks open and sends experimental tendrils upward to the fragile skin of calm holding him together.
Judith Guest
A hundred yards away, Mike Newton was lowering Bella’s limp body to the sidewalk. She slumped unresponsively against the wet concrete, her skin chalky as a corpse. I almost took the door off the car.
Stephenie Meyer
Every religion lies. Every moral precept is a delusion. Even the stars are a mirage. The truth is darkness, and the only thing that matters is making a statement before one enters it. Cutting the skin of the world and leaving a scar. That’s all history is, after all: scar tissue.
Stephen King
When I won the Cesar, I was, first of all, an actor. I have to say, it’s humanity first. That’s the future. We have to stop seeing the skin color. I believe that’s the most powerful way to change mentalities and behavior.
Omar Sy
The Hermit was known to be pretty sniffy about disciples who returned in failure. There was a wall of the institute layered with their skins- an ingenious display that encouraged vigor in his students, as well as nicely keeping out the drafts.
Jonathan Stroud
You have to realize, when you’re a comedian, that you have to have a thick skin. And trust me, being onstage in front of people is already difficult enough. Somebody’s personal attack in an email is not as hard as getting onstage.
Dane Cook
I don’t consider myself a pessimist. I think of a pessimist as someone who is waiting for it to rain. And I feel soaked to the skin.
Leonard Cohen
What I do in the writing of any character is to try to enter into the mind, heart and skin of a human being who is not myself. It is the act of a writer’s imagination that I set the most high.
Eudora Welty
I’m sorry to say I’m very lizard-like. My skin is dry, so covering my face in greasy antioxidants is a better alternative.
Sally Phillips
Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.
Joyce Carol Oates
I don’t think you can come into your wisdom until you have made mistakes on your own skin and felt them in reality of your own life.
Elizabeth Gilbert
That’s the beauty of the cure. No one mentions those lost, hot days in the field, when Thomas kissed Rachel’s tears away and invented worlds just so he could promise them to her, when she tore the skin off her own arm at the thought of living without him.
Lauren Oliver
My kids have to maintain good grades. They have to be involved in activities. They have to report to me how thing are going. I watch for any activity that would steer them wrong – drinking, drugs, etc. So their skin in the game is knowing the money won’t be there if they don’t do their part.
Michelle Singletary
He was the mightiest of Puritans no less than of philistines who first insisted that beauty is only skin deep.
Louis Kronenberger
You can put in a curl or put on a lip color or mascara, but the important thing is that the health of your skin and hair is shining through.
Erin Heatherton
I am just mystified by these people telling me I would think Obama was doing a great job if his skin contained less melanin.
Jonah Goldberg
What ever beauty may be it has for its basis order and for its essence unity Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone.
Dorothy Parker
So now I’m rollin’ down Rodeo wit a shotgun, These people ain’t seen a brown skin man, Since their grandparents bought one
Zack de la Rocha
Gravy is persistently plagued by two problems. Problem number one – skin. And problem number two – lumps.
Ari Shapiro
… people misunderstood death, they died not of too little life but of too much life, that as the skin withered and the future grew short it was the past that took on flesh, until ultimately the sheer accumulation of experience and memory became too heavy to carry.
Dorothy Gilman
When beholding the tranquil beauty and brilliancy of the ocean’s skin, one forgets the tiger heart that pants beneath it; and would not willingly remember that this velvet paw but conceals a remorseless fang.
Herman Melville
Like most people, I’ve grown a lot more sophisticated in my style choices. I know myself and what suits me better now than I did when I was much younger and feel more comfortable in my own skin.
Nina Garcia
I would never want to write a character who was not thoroughly herself or himself. She’s a very specific creature in my mind, and she has her thoughts, which range from skin to American history, philosophy, and the arts.
Lynne Tillman
Skin heads are doing an awful job of promoting racism. You guys need to loosen up, and for god’s sake would it kill you to smile.
Dov Davidoff
Grape juice at the communion table symbolizes the historical impotence of Christ’s blood, Christ’s gospel, Christ’s church, and Christ’s expanding kingdom. Grape juice stays ‘bottled up’, confined to the historical skins of Palestine.
Gary North
My skin may have wrinkles but it’s because I’m smiling so much. That might sound like some terrible American greetings card, but I feel it’s immoral for me to castigate my body for getting older, when it does everything I ask of it.
Olivia Williams
Beauty may be skin deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone.
Redd Foxx
I have learned that real angels don’t have gossamer white robes and Cherubic skin, they have calloused hands and smell of the days’ sweat.
Richard Paul Evans
In the middle of a wrist's suicide slash-line, below th

In the middle of a wrist’s suicide slash-line, below the layered skin and above the pulse, there’s an acupuncture point that says, “Get back to who you were meant to be.”
Monica Drake
Sage?” Adrian lightly touched my arm, and I jumped at the feel of his fingertips against my skin. “You okay?” “I don’t know,” I said softly. “I just thought of something crazy.” “Welcome to my world.
Richelle Mead
There are a lot of signs. One of the things that makes me most nervous is the disappearance of the frogs. They’re going downhill all over the planet. Frogs are susceptible to all kinds of problems, because they require water to breed and their skin is very porous. Their condition is nerve racking.
Paul R. Ehrlich
The skin of everyday appearances stretched over such shamelessness, such consuming explosions of lust.
Alice Munro
The slow rejection of the foreign skin grafts fascinated me. How could the host distinguish another person’s skin from his own?
Joseph Murray
What an occupation! To sit and flay your fellow men and then offer their skins for sale and expect them to buy them.
August Strindberg
I recommend Avon Skin-So-Soft. It’s a bath product. It smells like someone fed a Disney Princess through a juicer, but it works better than anything else on the market.
Mira Grant
I’m lucky with my skin – it doesn’t require a lot of attention, so I keep things simple. And I drink a lot of water.
Arizona Muse
God, make me a man with thick skin and a soft heart. Make me a man who is tough and tender. Make me tough so I can handle life. Make me tender so I can love people. God, make me a man.
Darrin Patrick
Why are people afraid of getting older? You feel wiser. You feel more mature. You feel like you know yourself better. You would trade that for softer skin? Not me!
Anna Kournikova
I want to make movies that pierce people’s hearts and touch them in some way, even if it’s just for the night while they’re in the cinema; in that moment, I want to bring actual tears to their eyes and goosebumps to their skin.
Russell Crowe
Water is essential to life! It’s also great for keeping your skin looking good and healthy, which is an added bonus.
Josie Ho
Good skin makes me feel pretty, and it makes me feel healthy, and it makes me feel happy.
Cara Santa Maria
Throughout my life, I’ve had different metaphors for freedom. At one time, it was skin diving. In the ocean you feel weightless; you escape from gravity.
Sam Keen
I’m trying to get under people’s skin in a way. I don’t like films that go in one ear and out the other.
Julia Leigh
I have sensitive skin, so I don’t use regular razors. The Yankees make us stay cleanly shaven!
Mark Teixeira
And in addition to its practical uses, it would seem to work for cosmetic purposes. This powder would make my very skin glimmer for eternity.” Henry frowned. “Not eternity,” he said, but then he brightened. “But I could make you up another batch whenever you please!” “I could shine at will!” Magnus grinned at Henry.
Cassandra Clare
Low levels of vitamin D in the population as a whole suggest that most people need to take a vitamin D supplement. This may be especially true for seniors, as the ability to synthesize vitamin D in the skin declines with age.
Andrew Weil
I have always regarded historical fiction and fantasy as sisters under the skin, two genres separated at birth.
George R. R. Martin
European standards of beauty are something that plague the entire world – the idea that darker skin is not beautiful, that light skin is the key to success and love. Africa is no exception.
Lupita Nyong’o
