There are women who do not let their husbands see their faces until they are married. Not to keep you in suspense, I mean that part of the sex who paint.
      - Sir Richard Steele

Her cheeks so rare a white was on,
  No daisy makes comparison;
    (Who sees them is undone);
      For streaks of red were mingled there,
        Such as are on a Cath'rine pear,
          (The side that's next the Sun).
      - Sir John Suckling, A Ballad Upon a Wedding
         (st. 10)

Her face is like the Milky Way i' the sky,--
  A meeting of gentle lights without a name.
      - Sir John Suckling, Brennoralt (act III)

White rose in red rose-garden
  Is not so white;
    Snowdrops, that plead for pardon
      And pine for fright
        Because the hard East blows
          Over their maiden vows,
            Grow not as this face grows from pale to bright.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne,
        Before the Mirror

For my soul prays, Sweet,
  Still to your face in Heaven,
    Heaven in your face, Sweet.
      - Francis Thompson

We are all sculptors and painters, and our material is our own flesh and blood and bones. Any nobleness begins at once to refine a man's features, any meanness or sensuality to imbrute them.
      - Henry David Thoreau

Keep your face to the sun and the shadows will fall behind.
      - Unknown

Quite the ugliest face I ever saw was that of a woman whom the world called beautiful. Through its silver veil the evil and ungentle passions looked out, hideous and hateful. On the other hand, there are faces which the multitude, at first glance, pronounce homely, unattractive and such as "Nature fashions by the gross," which I always recognize with a warm heart-thrill. Not for the world would I have one feature changed; they please me as they are; they are hallowed by kind memories, and are beautiful through their associations.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

Her closed lips were delicate as the tinted penciling of veins upon a flower; and on her cheek the timid blood, had faintly melted through, like something that was half afraid of light.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis

A face with gladness overspread!
  Soft smiles, by human kindness bred!
      - William Wordsworth, To a Highland Girl

Fire burns only when we are near it, but a beautiful face burns and inflames, though at a distance.
      - Xenophon

My face. Is this long strip of skin
  Which bears of worry many a trace,
    Of sallow hue, of features thin,
      This mass of seams and lines, my face?
      - Edmund H. Yates, Aged Forty
