Writings on the wall

First
impressions
are the most
lasting
what you see
is what you
get
the clothes
make the man
the leopard
does not
change its
spots

------------------

if the shoe fits
wear it
don't go near
the water
unless you
know how to
swim
there are
more than one
side to every
question
nine tailors
make a man

Found these as part of an exhibition at MoMA. The work was a collection of charcoal drawings of wigs, with taglines that reflected the color divide in America in the 1950's and suppression of women, both black and white.
