For thirty years now I have been studying my fellow-men.
I do not know very much about them.

We draw our conclusions from the shape of the jaw, the look in the eyes, the shape of the mouth.
I shrug my shoulders when people tell me that their
first impressions of a person are always right.
For my own part I find that the longer I know people the more they puzzle me:
my oldest friends are just those of whom I can say that I don't know anything about them.
