Man is most firm – woman the most flexible.
Man is the straightest – woman the most bending.
Man stands steadfast – woman gently trips.
Man surveys and observes – woman glances and feels.
Man is serious – woman is gay.
Man is the tallest and broadest – woman less and taper.
Man is rough and hard – woman smooth and soft.
Man is brown – woman is fair.
Man is wrinkly – woman is less so.
The hair of man is more strong and short – of woman more long and pliant.
The eyebrows of man are compressed – of woman less frowning.
Man has most convex lines – woman most concave.
Man has most straight lines – woman most curved.
The countenance of man, taken in profile, is more seldom perpendicular than that of woman.
Man is most angular – woman most round.
J.C. Lavater (1775)
