Don’t take yourself too seriously. Always ask: will this put a smile on people’s faces?
Shells used to come bursting on my bed at midnight, even though Nancy shared it with me; strangers in daytime would assume the faces of friends who had been killed... I could not use a telephone, I felt sick every time I travelled by train, and to see more than two new people in a single day prevented me from sleeping.robert graves
The Aegean sea washes Greece on two sides: first, the side that faces towards the east and stretches from Sunium, towards the north as far as the Thermaean Gulf and Thessaloniceia, a Macedonian city...; and secondly, the side that faces towards the south, I mean the Macedonian country, extending from Thessaloniceia as far as the Strymon.
I had seven faces thought I knew which one to wear But I'm sick of spending these lonely nights training myself not to care the subway, she is a porno and the pavements they are a mess I know you've supported me for a long time somehow I'm not impressed New York Cares (got to be some more change in my life)
In the marsh pink orchid's faces, With their coy and dainty graces, Lure us to their hiding places , Laugh, O murmuring Spring!

I do not see them here; but after death God knows I know the faces I shall see, Each one a murdered self, with low last breath. 'I am thyself,what hast thou done to me?' 'And Iand Ithyself,' (lo! each one saith,) 'And thou thyself to all eternity!'Dante Gabriel Rossetti
On that Day whatever cause prompteth the believer to believe in Him, the same will also be available to the unbeliever. But when the latter suffereth himself to be wrapt in veils, the same cause shutteth him out as by a veil. Thus, as is clearly evident today, those who have set their faces toward God, the True One, have believed in Him because of the Bayán, while such as are veiled have been deprived because of it.báb

You don't change the course of history by turning the faces of portraits to the wall.jawaharlal nehru
The Aegean sea washes Greece on two sides: first, the side that faces towards the east and stretches from Sunium, towards the north as far as the Thermaean Gulf and Thessaloniceia, a Macedonian city...; and secondly, the side that faces towards the south, I mean the Macedonian country, extending from Thessaloniceia as far as the Strymon.strabo
Down in the deep, up in the sky , I see them always, far or nigh, And I shall see them till I die The old familiar faces.dinah maria mulock
What monstrosities would walk the streets were some people's faces as unfinished as their minds.Eric Hoffer
I say more, the just man justices; Keeps grace: that keeps all his goings graces; Acts in God's eye what in God's eye he is Christ for Christ plays in ten thousand places, Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his To the Father through the features of men's faces.gerard manley hopkins
And with the morn those angel faces smile Which I have loved long since and lost awhile.
Sævitque animis ignobile vulgus, Jamque faces et saxa volant.
The thing that I have learned is that vulnerability is at the center of fear and shame, but it is also at the center of joy and gratitude and love and belonging...If we continue to wake up every day and put our game faces on and think that invulnerability is the way to be ... then we pay the price, because I don't know that we would ever fully experience joy and love and belonging.
As life runs on, the road grows strange With faces new, and near the end The milestones into headstones change: 'Neath every one a friend.

Anarchism is voluntary cooperation for good , with the right of secession. A Christian anarchist is therefore one who turns the other cheek, overturns the tables of the moneychangers, and does not need a cop to tell him how to behave.
