Top Shopper Quotes

Shopper Quotes By Edmund White

There was something stubborn in me that didn't want to lose weight to attract a man. If the right man came along, he'd be able to see my virtues magically. Once he kissed me, the frog would turn into a prince. I had become a trick question, a heavy disguise, but behind the disobliging exterior was the welcoming child I would always be. Of course, what I'd forgotten was that he was not Parsifal and I was not the Grail; the medievalism of my imagination was not sufficiently up-to-date to recognize that the lover was a shopper and I a product. — Edmund White

Shopper Quotes By Robin Williams

We used to be hunter-gatherers, now we're shopper-borrowers. — Robin Williams

Shopper Quotes By Jaime King

I'm not a big shopper. I'm very very picky about what it is that I buy, I prefer to buy vintage and then I prefer to be very selective. — Jaime King

Shopper Quotes By Dave Barry

Once again we find ourselves enmeshed in the Holiday Season, that very special time of year when we join with our loved ones in sharing centuries-old traditions such as trying to find a parking space at the mall. We traditionally do this in my family by driving around the parking lot until we see a shopper emerge from the mall, then we follow her, in very much the same spirit as the Three Wise Men, who 2,000 years ago followed a star, week after week, until it led them to a parking space. — Dave Barry

Shopper Quotes By Harold Coffin

A consumer is a shopper who is sore about something. — Harold Coffin

Shopper Quotes By Seth Meyers

I'm a terrible grocery shopper. I hardly ever do it. And if I do, there's never more than three things in the bag. — Seth Meyers

Shopper Quotes By Jon Bernthal

I'm not a big shopper. — Jon Bernthal

Shopper Quotes By Rob Sheffield

Some nights I would drive up Route 29 to the all-night Wal-Mart. I'd push a cart around with some paper towels inside to look like a real shopper, just to spy on married people. I just wanted to be near them, to listen to them argue ... Married people fight over some dumb shit when they think there aren't any widowers eavesdropping. And they never think there are widowers eavesdropping.
Rob Sheffield (Love is a Mix Tape) — Rob Sheffield

Shopper Quotes By Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann

I'm not an impulse shopper. I will wait three days after I see something. Am I still thinking about it? Then I'll get it. — Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann

Shopper Quotes By Paul Dano

I'm not a big shopper. I'm a pretty simple dresser, and that's not my pleasure go-to thing, looking for clothes. — Paul Dano

Shopper Quotes By Lexi Thompson

I'm not a huge shopper. I love looking good - obviously, on the golf course I like looking sharp, that's for sure. I'm just not into knowing brands. — Lexi Thompson

Shopper Quotes By Terry McMillan

Being a lifetime wife and mother has afforded me the luxury of having multiple and even simultaneous careers: I've been a chauffeur. A chef. An interior decorator. A landscape architect, as well as a gardener. I've been a painter. A furniture restorer. A personal shopper. A veterinarian's assistant and sometimes the veterinarian. I've been an accountant, a banker and on occasion, a broker. I've been a beautician. A map. A psychic. Santa Claus. The Tooth Fairy. The T.V. Guide. A movie reviewer. An angel. God. A nurse and a nursemaid. A psychiatrist and psychologist. Evangelist. For a long time I have felt like I inadvertently got my master's in How To Take Care of Everybody Except Yourself and then a Ph.D. in How to Pretend Like You Don't Mind. But I do mind. — Terry McMillan

Shopper Quotes By Rick Riordan

In English and Arabic. Clearly, even personal shoppers had him pegged as a complete geek. The shopper also managed to find some supplies for our magic bags - blocks of wax, twine, even some papyrus and ink - though I doubt Bes explained to her what they were for. After she left, Bes, Carter and I ordered more food from room service. We sat on the deck and watched the afternoon go by. The breeze from the Mediterranean was cool and pleasant. Modern Alexandria stretched out to our left - an odd mix of gleaming high-rises, shabby, crumbling buildings, and ancient ruins. The shoreline highway was dotted with palm trees and crowded with every sort of vehicle from BMWs to donkeys. From our penthouse suite, it all seemed a bit unreal - the raw energy of the city, the bustle and congestion below - while we sat on our veranda in the sky eating fresh fruit and the last melting bits of Lenin's head. — Rick Riordan

Shopper Quotes By Michael Pollan

The fact that the nutritional quality of a given food (and of that food's food) can vary not just in degree but in kind throws a big wrench into an industrial food chain, the very premise of which is that beef is beef and salmon salmon. It also throws a new light on the whole question of cost, for it quality matters so much more than quantity, then the price of a food may bear little relation to the value of the nutrients in it. If units of omega-3s and beta-cartene and vitamin E are what an egg shopper is really after, then Joel's $2.20 a dozen pastured eggs actually represents a much better deal than the $0.79 a dozen industrial eggs at the supermarket. — Michael Pollan

Shopper Quotes By Mickey Drexler

I didn't like the name 'personal shopper.' That makes it sound like too much of a commodity and not personal enough. — Mickey Drexler

Shopper Quotes By Dave Harvey

What motivates Olympic athletes to train for years for one event - in some cases, for just seconds of actual competition? It's the same thing that kept my friend Pete nosing around old bookstores for years. It's the same thing that makes a person venture out of a comfortable job to start a new business. We see it in the artist who spends day after day in a studio chipping away at a block of stone. Look closely and you'll find it in the shopper who passes up the good deal in search of the best deal. It's one of the things that makes us most human. We consciously pursue what we value. It's not simply a matter of being driven by biology or genetics or environmental conditioning to satisfy instinctive cravings. Rather, we perceive something, prize it at a certain value, then pursue it according to that assigned value because we were created that way. This ability to perceive, prize, and pursue is part of our essential humanness, and it's the essence of ambition. — Dave Harvey

Shopper Quotes By Ben Aaronovitch

The railway hit Harrow on the Hill in 1880 and it's been downhill ever since, culminating in one of those formless red brick shopping centres which artfully combines a complete lack of aesthetic quality with a total disregard for the utilitarian function for which it is built. As a result, your average shopper has only to spend ten minutes inside to be reduced to a state of quiet desperation. Primark has the right idea, being right by the entrance so that fleeing punters would grab the closest approximation to whatever it was they wanted before running screaming into the night. I'm — Ben Aaronovitch

Shopper Quotes By Jane Rosenthal

In another life, I could be a personal shopper. — Jane Rosenthal

Shopper Quotes By Alan Davies

I'm not a great shopper but I do buy a lot of books. I'm the publishers' friend - I buy a hundred books a year and read four. — Alan Davies

Shopper Quotes By Wil Wheaton

Sorry, Vern. I guess a more experienced shopper could have gotten more for your seven cents. — Wil Wheaton

Shopper Quotes By Brad Goreski

I am a sale shopper. I love a discounted item. — Brad Goreski

Shopper Quotes By Edward Lampert

I'm not from a retail background, but I am a shopper. — Edward Lampert

Shopper Quotes By Anna Mouglalis

I'm not a great clothes shopper. I tend to get a lot from Chanel. But I do like to wear menswear. I love Martin Margiela, and I often take clothes from my boyfriend's closet. — Anna Mouglalis

Shopper Quotes By William H. Albritton Sr.

When I buy an inexpensive shirt made in a sweatshop in China, am I willing to think about the person who made it - about what kind of life he or she lives in order for me to buy a $10 garment? Or do I pat myself on the back for my skills as a bargain shopper? — William H. Albritton Sr.

Shopper Quotes By Erin O'Connor

I am the world's laziest shopper, but very rarely have I had to take anything back. — Erin O'Connor

Shopper Quotes By Lindy West

My relationship with brick-and-mortar shopping is, in general, unpleasant. I can't remember a time in my life when I could go to a physical store and find a variety of things in my size that excited me and fit my personal style. As a plus-size shopper at a typical mall, you're limited to at most five stores out of maybe 50 clothing retailers. That leaves us with very few options and, for people on a tight budget, pretty much no chance of comparison shopping. You take what you can get. — Lindy West

Shopper Quotes By Ben Rehder

the past year or so that make me think Leigh Anne might be having an affair." "What kind of things?" "She's always been a big shopper, but now she's going several times a week. Always going to Austin or San Antone. I know she does actually go shopping sometimes, because she comes home with bags of stuff. Other times, nothing. She says she was just looking." "Well, you know, women do that. They can shop for ten hours and come home with one item that — Ben Rehder

Shopper Quotes By Kristin Davis

I'm not really much of a shopper. I have to say that I'd definitely prefer good sex. What makes good sex? Oh my god. I think you need to feel free and you have to really trust the other person. And you have to have that strange, mysterious chemical connection. — Kristin Davis

Shopper Quotes By Paul David Tripp

So many of our prayers are self-centered grocery lists of personal cravings that have no bigger agenda than to make our lives a little more comfortable. They tend to treat God more as our personal shopper than a holy and wise Father-King. Such prayers forget God's glory and long for a greater experience of the glories of the created world. They lack fear, reverence, wonder, and worship. They're more like pulling up the divine shopping site than bowing our knees in adoration and worship. They are motivated more by awe of ourselves and our pleasures than by a heart-rattling, satisfaction-producing awe of the Redeemer to whom we are praying. — Paul David Tripp

Shopper Quotes By Lynn Jurich

There is a huge market for products and services aimed at what I like to call the Pocketbook Environmentalist: a shopper who's savvy enough to know things don't necessarily have to cost more just because they're good for the environment. — Lynn Jurich

Shopper Quotes By Mark Cuban

If you can, you will quickly find that the greatest rate of return you will earn is on your own personal spending. Being a smart shopper is the first step to getting rich. — Mark Cuban

Shopper Quotes By Christopher McDougall

But there's a problem," Dr. Bramble said. He tapped his forehad. "And it's right up here." Our greatest talent, he explained, also created the monster that could destroy us. "Unlike any other organism in history, humans have a mind-body conflict: we have a body built for performance, but a brain that's always looking for efficiency." We live or die by our endurance, but remember: endurance is all about conserving energy, and that's the brain's department. "The reason some people use their genetic gift for running and others don't is because the brain is a bargain shopper. — Christopher McDougall

Shopper Quotes By Amit Chaudhuri

He has a traditional shopper's DNA, an eye for freshness and appearance, and a consistent sense of a home to go back to. — Amit Chaudhuri

Shopper Quotes By T. Boone Pickens

I don't go cheap on anything, but I'm not a shopper. If I want something, I look at it, decide what it is, but it will usually be the best product. I've got a pair of loafers that I still wear that I got in 1957. — T. Boone Pickens

Shopper Quotes By Richard O'Connor

Avoid triggers. If you're an alcoholic, stay out of bars. If you're a depressed or impulsive shopper, don't go shopping. When you have to, go in with a list, rush in, and rush out. If you watch too much television, don't sit in your favorite chair. In fact, move it (or the TV) to another room. — Richard O'Connor

Shopper Quotes By John Scalzi

Even then, retailers learned early that shoppers prefer their shopping suggestions not be too truthful. One of the great unwritten chapters of retail intelligence programming featured a "personal shopper" program that all-too-accurately modeled the shoppers' desires and outputted purchase ideas based on what shoppers really wanted as opposed to what they wanted known that they wanted. This resulted in one overcompensatingly masculine test user receiving suggestions for an anal plug and a tribute art book for classic homoerotic artist Tom of Finland, while a female test user in the throes of a nasty divorce received suggestions for a small handgun, a portable bandsaw, and several gallons of an industrial solvent used to reduce organic matter to an easily drainable slurry. — John Scalzi

Shopper Quotes By Mike Barlow

It's about the ability to make better decisions and take meaningful actions at the right time. It's about detecting fraud while someone is swiping a credit card, or triggering an offer while a shopper is standing on a checkout line, or placing an ad on a website while someone is reading a specific article. It's about combining and analyzing data so you can take the right action, at the right time, and at the right place. — Mike Barlow

Shopper Quotes By Dorothee Solle

To he "over-choiced" with thirty different kinds of bread does indeed develop the shopper's awareness of differentiation and sense of taste. However, from the ego that is becoming dependent on such a surplus of choice, it also takes away the time and energy for other life pursuits. The ego is diverted and, with the help of the world of consumer goods, "turned in on itself" (bomo incur-vatus in se ipsum), as the tradition used to depict the sinner.
The least to he learned from the tradition of mysticism is that becoming empty in a world of surplus, learning to switch off, and limiting oneself are small steps in the liberation from consumerism, and that perhaps freedom cannot he imagined without letting go. — Dorothee Solle

Shopper Quotes By Joseph Roth

The escalator seems to me to typify this: It leads us up, by climbing on our behalf. Yes, it doesn't even climb, it flies. Each step carries its shopper aloft, as though afraid he might change his mind. It takes us up to merchandise we might not have bothered to climb an ordinary flight of steps for. — Joseph Roth

Shopper Quotes By Malin Akerman

I'm such a bad shopper for myself. I love fashion and all that kind of stuff, but that's sort of the last thing I want to do when I'm done with a film is go shopping. I want to just chill. — Malin Akerman

Shopper Quotes By Bitsie Tulloch

Portland is a really great city, especially because I'm a shopper and there's no sales tax! That really adds up so fast, because in California, a $1000 pair of shoes ends up costing another $100. — Bitsie Tulloch

Shopper Quotes By Sarah Jessica Parker

I feel funny saying this, I'm not really a shoe shopper. I'm not going to go out and buy hundreds of pairs of shoes. I'm much more thoughtful than [Carrie] is, which is also one of the treats of playing her all these years. — Sarah Jessica Parker

Shopper Quotes By Keith Taylor

And frankly, if you find yourself trapped by a creature blessed with the coordination of Stephen Hawking and the intelligence of a Black Friday midnight shopper you almost deserve to die. No, — Keith Taylor

Shopper Quotes By Michael Moss

The playing field is anything but level when you walk into the grocery store. So much government subsidy goes into processed foods. Even when you're well-meaning as a parent or a shopper for yourself, you can't help but be pulled toward the highly processed food. — Michael Moss

Shopper Quotes By Leigh Lezark

I'm more of a window-shopper; if anything catches my eye, I drop in. — Leigh Lezark

Shopper Quotes By Charles Stross

I was Computer Shopper's linux columnist for more than half a decade, from the late 90s onwards. Yes, I know about Linux. (My first review of a Linux distro in the press was published in late 1996.) — Charles Stross

Shopper Quotes By Ted Rubin

Start thinking about a consumer's "Path to Purpose" along her "Path to Purchase. — Ted Rubin

Shopper Quotes By Craig Stone

Stale beer sticks to wobbling tables. The cigarette machine flashes in the corner, mocking smokers who never have any change on them. There's no natural light in this pub, so it's dark and gloomy. The pain on the face of the staff tells its own story: overworked, underpaid, exploited and treated as expendable. I feel at home with them. They're so scared they will be fired from their terrible jobs, every time I order a beer they ask me if I want any peanuts or crisps, in case between drinks I've turned into the dreaded mystery shopper. The air is chewy and weighs heavy on the skin. The fruit machines in the corners don't make a sound, aware this is the last stop saloon for the drunk few who can't afford to gamble properly. Everyone here is down to their last pint and pound. — Craig Stone

Shopper Quotes By Deborah Fallows

One day, in a grocery store, I swept clean a shelf of microbrew beer for my husband and three giant jars of mustard, leaving none for future shoppers. It was victory tinged with guilt. What would the next expat shopper think, when looking for beer or mustard? I couldn't afford to think about them. Every man for himself, in modern China! — Deborah Fallows

Shopper Quotes By Rita Rudner

While I do occasionally order items on the Internet, it's hard to teach an old shopper new tricks. I'm convinced that the catalogue will eventually disappear, but not until the last baby boomers have kicked off their smelly Nikes and been buried in mulch. — Rita Rudner

Shopper Quotes By Natalie Morales

I learned what looked good on my petite frame, and to this day, I'm a great bargain shopper. — Natalie Morales

Shopper Quotes By Lisa Ling

I am a crazy online shopper. My husband always jokes, 'Another box arrived!' Airplanes used to be my sanctuary for reading books, but now I have to peruse Gilt sales. — Lisa Ling

Shopper Quotes By Zac Posen

I am a compulsive and concise shopper. — Zac Posen

Shopper Quotes By Sophie McShera

I'm a massive shopper. Topshop, Urban Outfitters - I'm pretty at home on the high street. — Sophie McShera

Shopper Quotes By Gail Simmons

I would not say I'm an aggressive shopper. I want to be; I aspire to be an aggressive shopper. I am a meek, meek shopper. — Gail Simmons

Shopper Quotes By Deirdre O'Kane

I'm a shopper but not a big money/label-y shopper. It makes me a nervous wreck. — Deirdre O'Kane

Shopper Quotes By Gabor Mate

Not all addictions are rooted in abuse or trauma, but I do believe they can all be traced to painful experience. A hurt is at the centre of all addictive behaviours. It is present in the gambler, the Internet addict, the compulsive shopper and the workaholic. The wound may not be as deep and the ache not as excruciating, and it may even be entirely hidden - but it's there. As we'll see, the effects of early stress or adverse experiences directly shape both the psychology and the neurobiology of addiction in the brain. — Gabor Mate

Shopper Quotes By Nicole Richie

I do love to shop. But I'm a social shopper. I like to do it while hanging out with my friends. Some of them hate shopping because they treat it like something you have to plan, like a grocery list. But if I'm out and I pass a store, I just pop in. — Nicole Richie

Shopper Quotes By Roosh V

How does a retail security guard tell a shopper from a shoplifter? Answer: a shoplifter doesn't look at tags. — Roosh V

Shopper Quotes By Katrina Kaif

I'm not a big spender or shopper. Neither am I extravagant, nor do I have big expenses. I mainly spend on travel. I don't buy overpriced clothes, as I feel such expenses are unnecessary. I probably wouldn't buy expensive watches or jewellery either. — Katrina Kaif

Shopper Quotes By Oscar Wilde

Liberty is the chosen
resort of the artistic
shopper. — Oscar Wilde

Shopper Quotes By Sloane Stephens

I'm an online shopper, so that's what I do in my free time. A lot of online shopping, and I just like to see new styles and new people. — Sloane Stephens

Shopper Quotes By Cheyenne Kimball

I'm a bargain shopper. — Cheyenne Kimball

Shopper Quotes By Erma Bombeck

I am always behind the shopper at the grocery store who has stitched her coupons in the lining of her coat and wants to talk about a 'strong' chicken she bought two weeks ago. The register tape also runs out just before her sub-total. In the public restroom, I always stand behind the teen-ager who is changing into her band uniform for a parade and doesn't emerge until she has combed the tassels on her boots, shaved her legs, and recovered her contact lens from the commode. — Erma Bombeck

Shopper Quotes By Aerin Lauder

I used to be a shopper before I had children. I'd go to Bergdorf and Barneys all the time. But now my weekends are spent differently. I go to the skating rink or the park, not the stores. — Aerin Lauder

Shopper Quotes By Brad Paisley

I'm a last-minute shopper. I end up at the mall or somewhere on Christmas Eve. It's a shame. — Brad Paisley

Shopper Quotes By John Scalzi

One of the great unwritten chapters of retail intelligence programming featured a "personal shopper" program that all-too-accurately modeled the shoppers' desires and outputted purchase ideas based on what shoppers really wanted as opposed to what they wanted known that they wanted. This resulted in one overcompensatingly masculine test user receiving suggestions for an anal plug and a tribute art book for classic homoerotic artist Tom of Finland, while a female test user in the throes of a nasty divorce received suggestions for a small handgun, a portable bandsaw, and several gallons of an industrial solvent used to reduce organic matter to an easily drainable slurry. After history's first recorded instance of a focus group riot, the personal shopper program was extensively rewritten. — John Scalzi

Shopper Quotes By Jemaine Clement

I'm a real pawn-shopper. — Jemaine Clement
