Quote of the Day

Aprons are Defences; against injury to cleanliness, to safety, to modesty, sometimes to roguery. From the thin slip of notched silk, which some highest-bred Housewife has gracefully fastened on; to the thick-tanned hide, girt round him with thongs, wherein the Builder builds; or to those jingling sheet-iron aprons, wherein your otherwise half-naked Vulcans hammer and smelt in their smelt-furnace—is there not range enough in the fashion and uses of this vestment? ~ Thomas Carlyle
