Famous quotes containing the word faced:

    Plain women he regarded as he did the other severe facts of life, to be faced with philosophy and investigated by science.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    All night I’ve held your hand,
    as if you had
    a fourth time faced the kingdom of the mad—
    its hackneyed speech, its homicidal eye—
    and dragged me home alive. . . .
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    To be faced with what so-and-so’s mother lets him do, or what the teacher said in class today or what all the kids are wearing is to be required to reexamine some part of our belief structure. Each time we rethink our values we reaffirm them or begin to change them. Seen in this way, parenthood affords us an exceptional opportunity for growth.
    Ruth Davidson Bell (20th century)
