John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:2047
AUTHOR:Ben Jonson (1572–1637)
QUOTATION:Give me a look, give me a face,
That makes simplicity a grace;
Robes loosely flowing, hair as free,—
Such sweet neglect more taketh me
Than all the adulteries of art:
They strike mine eyes, but not my heart.
ATTRIBUTION:Epicæne; Or, the Silent Woman. Act i. Sc. 1.
