It can, depending on the definition in the human case, include the hair, forehead, eyebrow, eyelashes, eyes, nose, ears, cheeks, mouth, lips, philtrum, temple, teeth, skin, and chin. The face has uses of expression, appearance, and identity amongst others. It also has different senses like olfaction, taste, hearing, and vision.

Famous quotes containing the word face:

    My head gripped in bony vise
    of knees, the writhing struggle
    to wrench free, the blows, the fear
    worse than blows that hateful

    Words could bring, the face that I
    no longer knew or loved. . . .
    Robert Earl Hayden (1913–1980)

    Behold I have given you every herb bearing seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
    —Bible: Hebrew Genesis 1:29.

    But in a later context, God told the disgraced Adam, “and thou shalt eat the herb of the field” (Genesis 3:18)

    “Child,
    why do you waste your time
    on childish things alone?”
    “Clothe yourself in anger.”
    “Take courage,
    and cast off this honesty
    toward your lover.”
    When her girlfriends
    gave her such advice,
    she answered,
    her face frightened,
    “Speak softly.
    The lord of my breath
    is still in my heart.
    No doubt he’ll hear you.”
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
