Famous quotes containing the word face:

    He is no mystic, either, more than Newton or Arkwright or Davy, and tolerates none. Not one obscure line, or half line, did he ever write. His meaning lies plain as the daylight.... It has the distinctness of picture to his mind, and he tells us only what he sees printed in largest English type upon the face of things.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Panting, begging I clutched childlike, clutched to the hot sides of
    death.
    Now I am dry bones and my face a stony skull staring in yellow
    surprise at the sun. . . .
    Richard Wright (1808–1860)

    It’s worth living abroad to study up on genteel and delicate manners. The maid smiles continuously; she smiles like a duchess on a stage, while at the same time it is clear from her face that she is exhausted from overwork.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)
