Francis Quarles – In thy apparel avoid singularity

Share this quote:
Francis QuarlesIn thy apparel avoid singularity, profuseness, and gaudiness. Be not too early in the fashion, nor too late. Decency is half way between affectation and neglect. The body is the shell of the soul, apparel is the husk of that shell; the husk often tells you what the kernel is.

Carl Jung – Coming to consciousness without pain
