A face tells you so much: it can tell of the past, show promise of the future, and make blindingly clear what is happening in the present!
I’ve often wondered if there is a reason behind the similarity in German of the word for Face = ‘Gesicht’ and Story = ‘Geschichte’.
I’m a people watcher and I’m fascinated by the nuances I see in people. I’m also lucky in that I see beauty easily and everywhere. My heart can be taken by the simplest little thing like a dimple, crooked tooth or twinkling eye. I also find that the beauty of a face can certainly grow on you…
But I’m not the only one with this face-ination, look what other have had to say:
A man finds room in the few square inches of his face for the traits of all his ancestors; for the expression of all his history, and his wants.
I've never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful. ~Author Unknown
Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty - they merely move it from their faces into their hearts. ~Martin Buxbaum
An eye can threaten like a loaded and levelled gun, or it can insult like hissing or kicking; or, in its altered mood, by beams of kindness, it can make the heart dance for joy.... One of the most wonderful things in nature is a glance of the eye; it transcends speech; it is the bodily symbol of identity. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face. ~Victor Hugo
A man's face is his autobiography. A woman's face is her work of fiction. ~Oscar Wilde
It is the common wonder of all men, how among so many millions of faces, there should be none alike. ~Thomas Browne, Religio Medici
God has given you one face, and you make yourself another. ~William Shakespeare
The countenance is the portrait of the soul, and the eyes mark its intentions.
I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that. ~Lauren Bacall
“The art of procreation and the members employed therein are so repulsive, that if it were not for the beauty of the faces and the adornments of the actors and the pent-up impulse, nature would lose the human species.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci
