Famous quotes containing the word face:

    No face which we can give to a matter will stead us so well at last as the truth. This alone wears well.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The middle years are ones in which children increasingly face conflicts on their own,... One of the truths to be faced by parents during this period is that they cannot do the work of living and relating for their children. They can be sounding boards and they can probe with the children the consequences of alternative actions.
    Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)

    Nor now the long light on the sea—
    And here face downward in the sun
    To feel how swift how secretly
    The shadow of the night comes on . . .
    Archibald MacLeish (1892–1982)
