Beards of Time

The beard, being a half-mask, should be forbidden by the police. It is, moreover, as a sexual symbol in the middle of the face, obscene: that is why it pleases women.

(Arthur Schopenhauer)

Lord, I could not endure a husband with a / beard on his face: I had rather lie in the woollen.

(Beatrice in Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, II.i)
