Famous quotes containing the word face:

    Then to the third—a face nor child nor old, very calm,
    as of beautiful yellow-white ivory,
    Young man I think I know you—I think this face is the
    face of the Christ himself,
    Dead and divine and brother of all, and here again he lies.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    Each of us, face to face with other men, is clothed with some sort of dignity, but we know only too well all the unspeakable things that go on in the heart.
    Luigi Pirandello (1867–1936)

    Let’s face it, writing is hell.
    William Styron (b. 1925)
