"Physiognomy, whether understood in its most extensive or confined signification, is the origin of all human decisions, efforts, actions, expectations, fears, and hopes; of all pleasing and unpleasing sensations, which are occasioned by external objects, nor is there a man to he found who is not daily influenced by Physiognomy; not a man who has not figured to himself a countenance exceedingly lovely, or exceedingly hateful; not a man who does not more or less, the first time he encounters a stranger, observe, estimate, compare, and judge him, according to appearances, although he might hitherto have been a stranger to the science of Physiognomy; it is, therefore, a manifest truth, that whether or not sensible of it, all men are daily influenced by Physiognomy; and as Sultzer has affirmed, every man, consciously or unconsciously, understands something of Physiognomy. The most simple and inanimate object has its characteristic exterior, by which it is not only distinguished as a species, but individually; and shall the first, noblest, best harmonized, and most beauteous of beings, be denied all characteristic? But whatever may be opposed to the truth and certainty of the science of Physiognomy, it must be admitted that there is no object, thus considered, more important, more worthy of observation, more interesting than man, nor any occupation superior to that of disclosing the beauties and perfections of human nature"--Book.
