Famous quotes containing the word face:

    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)

    In the long, sleepless watches of the night,
    A gentle face—the face of one long dead—
    Looks at me from the wall,
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)
