The siege of the Alamo began (1836)


ON CHARACTER & THE FACE

Straight lips, firmly closed: RESOLUTION.
Large ears denote GENEROSITY.
Thick lips indicate GENIUS & CONSERVATISM.
Large dilating nostrils are a sign of POETIC TEMPERAMENT & A SENSITIVE NATURE.
A long forehead denotes LIBERALITY.
Arched eyebrows, GOOD ANCESTRY & AMIABILITY.
A bold, projecting Roman nose indicates ENTERPRISE.
Delicate nose, GOOD NATURE.
A large nose, STRENGTH OF WILL & CHARACTER.
Lips slightly curved upward at the ends indicate a FINE SENSE OF HUMOR.
Soft round cheeks denote GENTLENESS& AFFECTION; dimples in the cheeks, ROGUERY; in the chin, one who EASILY FALLS IN LOVE.
A broad chin denotes FIRMNESS.
An eye that looks one cheerfully and frankly in the face shows HONESTY & FAITHFULNESS.
[Anonymous, c.1830?]
