"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.
-- Joseph Conrad
