Woe is me! The winged words on which my soul would pierceInto the heights of love's rare universe,Are chains of lead around its flight of fire--I pant, I sink, I tremble, I expire.
— Percy Bysshe Shelley

We have grown literally afraid to be poor. We despise anyone who elects to be poor in order to simplify and save his inner life. If he does not join the general scramble and pant with the money-making street, we deem him spiritless and lacking in ambition.
William James pants quote

I don't like my men to be too ornate. I like them to stand back and let their women shine, and they should really wear the pants in the relationship.
— Eva Mendes

I'm too tasteful for my pants.
— Ian Williams

I will be a president in a skirt, but I will wear the pants.
— Josefina Vazquez Mota
