The features of our face are hardly more than gestures which have become permanent
After a certain age every man is responsible for his face
There's no art to find the mind's construction in the face
God has given you one face, and you make yourself another
False face must hide what the false heart doth know
A beautiful face is a mute recommendation
A man's face as a rule says more, and more interesting things, than his mouth, for it is a compendium of everything his mouth will ever say, in that it is the monogram of all this man's thoughts and aspirations
A man's face is his autobiography. A woman's face is her work of fiction


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
