Eyes Quotes

Silence is a lawyer who pleads with his eyes.

Malcolm de Chazal

Childhood, at its best, is a perpetual adventure, in the truest sense of that overtaxed word: a setting forth into trackless lands that might have come to existence the instant before you first laid eyes on them.

Michael Chabon

After a certain age, any new friends we make in our attempt to replace the ones we've lost are like glass eyes, false teeth and wooden legs.

Nicolas Chamfort

When your life flashes before your eyes, make sure youve got plenty to watch.

Anonymous

The great moments of life are but moments like the others. Your doom is spoken in a word or two. A single look from the eyes, a mere pressure of the hand, may decide it; or of the lips, though they cannot speak.

William Makepeace Thackeray

Clever men will recognize and tolerate nothing but cleverness; every authority rouses their ridicule, every superstition amuses them, every convention moves them to contradiction. Only force finds favor in their eyes, and they have no toleration for anything that is not purely natural and spontaneous. And yet ten clever men are not worth one man of talent, nor ten men of talent worth one man of genius. And in the individual, feeling is more than cleverness, reason is worth as much as feeling, and conscience has it over reason. If, then, the clever man is not mockable, he may at least be neither loved, nor considered, nor esteemed. He may make himself feared, it is true, and force others to respect his independence; but this negative advantage, which is the result of a negative superiority, brings no happiness with it. Cleverness is serviceable for everything, sufficient for nothing.

Henri-Frdric Amiel

Spiritual superiority only sees the individual. But alas, ordinarily we human beings are sensual and, therefore, as soon as it is a gathering, the impression changes -- we see something abstract, the crowd, and we become different. But in the eyes of God, the infinite spirit, all the millions that have lived and now live do not make a crowd, He only sees each individual.

Soren Kierkegaard

When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said "Let us pray." We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.

Desmond Tutu

Three things I want in a relationship: Eyes that won\'t cry, lips that won\'t lie, and love that won\'t die.

Wiz Khalifa

It is important for the poet not to be emotional because you cannot see the world clearly with tears in your eyes.

Billy Collins

Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor... Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.

Mother Theresa

The eyes are the mirror of the soul.

Proverb

You came out of the night, Wearing a mask in white colour. My eyes were shining On the wine, and your aura.

Kate Bush

If a man has not studied painting, or at any rate black and white drawing, his eyes are wild; learning to draw tames them. The first step towards taming the eyes is to teach them not to see too much.

Samuel Butler

In the eyes of God all men, indeed all creatures, may be equal: but the divine law of the individual is to maintain and to defend his individuality.

Houston Stewart Chamberlain

An angry man opens his mouth and shuts his eyes.

Marcus Porcius Cato

You act as if there's blinders on your eyes!

Brandon Boyd

Perspective prys her once-weighty eyes and it gives you wings.

Brandon Boyd

If we can but tear the blindfold of self-deception from our eyes and loosen the gag of self-denial from our voices, we can restore our country to greatness.

Theodore C Sorensen

Eyes exist in the state of savage.

Andr Breton

To paraphrase the great poet Dante, the heavens swirl above us and our eyes are still cast to the ground.

Vanna Bonta

Back o'er the deep I turn my longing eyes, And chide the wayward passions that rebel: Yet boots it not to think, or to complain, Musing sad ditties to the reckless main. To dreams like these, adieu! the pealing bell Speaks of the hour that stays notand the day To life's sad turmoil calls my heart away.

William Lisle Bowles

See the stone set in your eyes,see the thorn twist in your side.I wait for you

Paul David Hewson

The eyes were too intense, tortured almost. He was tall, but the body was wiry rather than powerful. Nature had gifted him with a cats grace and lethal swiftness, rather than the raw power of a bull.
