    He would see faces in movies, on T.V., in magazines, and in books....
    He thought that some of these faces might be right for him....And
    through the years, by keeing an ideal facial structure fixed in his
    mind....Or somewhere in the back of his mind....That he might, by
    force of will, cause his face to approach those of his ideal....The
    change would be very subtle....It might take ten years or so....
    Gradually his face would change its' shape....A more hooked nose...
    Wider, thinner lips....Beady eyes....A larger forehead.

    He imagined that this was an ability he shared with most other
    people....They had also molded their faced according to some
    ideal....Maybe they imagined that their new face would better
    suit their personality....Or maybe they imagined that their
    personality would be forced to change to fit the new appear-
    ance....This is why first impressions are often correct...
    Although some people might have made mistakes....They may have
    arrived at an appearance that bears no relationship to them....
    They may have picked an ideal appearance based on some childish
    whim, or momentary impulse....Some may have gotten half-way
    there, and then changed their minds.

    He wonders if he too might have made a similar mistake.
