“At age 50 every man has the face he deserves.”
“At 50, everyone has the face he deserves.”
The Orwell quote specifying every “man” is how I first remember reading the sentence in the last of his four volumes of Collected Essays – In Front of Your Nose. It appeared as the last line of the volume, as Orwell himself died at age 50. (If that’s in fact where I saw it.) The squishy alternative/substitute of “everyone” is from a search result. Both forms are presented as the exact quote. And I suspect the second fey version was written by a Pajama boy. But if my memory fails me, and the second squishy version is the correct one, it’s mostly because I have the face I deserve.
