The face of a man gives us fuller and more interesting information than his tongue; for his face is the compendium of all he will ever say, as it is the one record of all his thoughts and endeavours. - Arthur Schopenhauer (Religion: A Dialogue and Other Essays Quotes)

The face of a man gives us fuller and more interesting information than his tongue; for his face is the compendium of all he will ever say, as it is the one record of all his thoughts and endeavours.[Das Gesicht eines Menschen in der Regel mehr und Interessanteres als sein Mund: denn es ist das Kompendium alles dessen, was dieser je sagen wird; indem es das Monogramm alles Denkens und Trachtens dieses Menschen ist.]
