International Women's Day 2011

Passenger from USA



Livingston, Guatemala


Women's words on faces...

The mind, the tongue, soon learn to dissemble,
to guard a secret well, but the human face
is a window.
(Lawrence Lynch, 1883)

I have not learned happily
to live with my face.
(Diane Wakowski)

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty;
it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.
(Coco Chanel, 1956)

The facial contours of youth were deceptive... It
was only when age began to write on the face that
the signature could no longer be forged.
(Marjorie Carleton, 1955)

He had a face like a buttered scone,
dripping complacency.
(Helen Hudson, 1968)

A face that has the marks of having lived intensely,
that expresses some phase of life, some dominant
quality or intellectual power, constitutes for me an
interesting face. For this reason, the face of an older
person, perhaps not beautiful in the strictest sense,
is usually more appealing than the face of a
younger person who has scarcely been touched
by life.
(Doris Ulmann, 1930)
