That Accidental and Unrepeatable Combination of Features

“The serial number of a human specimen is the face, that accidental and unrepeatable combination of features. It reflects neither character nor soul, nor what we call the self. The face is only the serial number of a specimen”

  1. I love this idea that the face is just the serial number of the specimen… people need to “get” that more and not judge so much on appearances because it’s a shallow method of summing someone up, deciding on their worth etc.
