"What is a face, really? 
Its own photo? Its make-up? 
Or is it a face as painted by such or such painter? 
That which is in front? Inside? Behind? 
And the rest? 
Doesn't everyone look at himself 
in his own particular way? 
Deformations simply do not exist."

-- Pablo Picasso

 "No man for any considerable period 
can wear one face to himself 
and another to the multitude, 
without finally getting bewildered 
as to which may be true." 

-- Nathaniel Hawthorne

"Facing it, always facing it, 
that's the way to get through. 
Face it."

-- Joseph Conrad
