John Steinbeck: “A Man with a Beard Was Always a Little Suspect Anyway”

Photographer Unknown, (A Man with a Beard)

“A man with a beard was always a little suspect anyway. You couldn’t say you wore a beard because you liked a beard. People didn’t like you for telling the truth. You had to say you had a scar so you couldn’t shave.”
― John Steinbeck, Cannery Row
