Life's Little Lessons


"Some people think of dressing up or being polite as a burden. They think having to wear a tie or use the right fork or send a thank you card is a kind of shackle. To these people I say: Getting out of bed is a shackle. If you feel that way, stay in it! Invest in a hospital gurney and wheel yourself around on it when you need to go out."
- Tim Gunn


I just couldn't help but laugh at this when I spotted it on You Are My Fav.

  11. HAHA I cant wait to read this book! I love Tim Gunn..I love how he calls out designers and celebs that are rude or poorly dressed. He's too funny that way!! That quote is such inspiration to keep putting in the extra effort even when all of my other classmates dont bother. Thanks!!

  22. You know, I love Tim Gunn, but he's been being rather mean on his promotional appearances for his book. There's no need to mock others or tell nasty stories to get ahead. I really admired him before, but now I'm starting to see another side of him that I really do not like.

  23. great quote - and largely spot on - though some social conventions are just a burden, fundamentally they are signs of consideration for others, and as such more than worth the effort... xo bb
