Written by Emma Walsh, 29th June 2016

A man with a beard was always a little suspect anyway." - John Steinbeck, Cannery Row

Beard

He that hath a beard is more than a youth, and he that hath no beard is less than a man. He that is more than a youth is not for me, and he that is less than a man, I am not for him.- William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing
