Famous quotes containing the word face:

    From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race.
    —Jean De La Bruyère (1645–1696)

    The whole bloody system is sick: the very notion of leadership, a balloon with a face painted upon it, elected and inflated by media’s diabolic need to reduce ideas to personalities.
    Kate Millett (b. 1934)

    My friend’s cold made-up face, granite among its flowers,
    Her undressed, operated-on, dressed body
    Were my face and body.
    Randall Jarrell (1914–1965)
