eyes

When I read a book I seem to read it with my eyes only, but now and then I come across a passage, perhaps only a phrase, which has a meaning for me, and it becomes part of me.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

What a wretched lot of old shrivelled creatures we shall be by-and-by. Never mind - the uglier we get in the eyes of others, the lovelier we shall be to each other; that has always been my firm faith about friendship.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity... and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

There are few things more dreadful than dealing with a man who knows he is going under, in his own eyes, and in the eyes of others. Nothing can help that man. What is left of that man flees from what is left of human attention.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are becoming like cats, slyly parasitic, enjoying an indifferent domesticity. Nice and snug in the social, our historic passions have withdrawn into the glow of an artificial coziness, and our half-closed eyes now seek little other than the peaceful parade of television pictures.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As the end of the century approaches, all our culture is like the culture of flies at the beginning of winter. Having lost their agility, dreamy and demented, they turn slowly about the window in the first icy mists of morning. They give themselves a last wash and brush-up, their oscillated eyes roll, and they fall down the curtains.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Perhaps our eyes are merely a blank film which is taken from us after our deaths to be developed elsewhere and screened as our life story in some infernal cinema or dispatched as microfilm into the sidereal void.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I have eyes like those of a dead pig.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts, the circle of Creation is completed inside us, the doors of our souls fly open and love steps forth to heal everything in sight.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I have seen gleams in the face and eyes of the man that have let you look into a higher country.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The miracles of the church seem to me to rest not so much upon faces or voices or healing power coming suddenly near to us from afar off, but upon our perceptions being made finer, so that for a moment our eyes can see and our ears can hear what is there about us always.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The eyes those silent tongues of love.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Would you convey my compliments to the purist who reads your proofs and tell him or her that I write in a sort of broken-down patois which is something like the way a Swiss waiter talks, and that when I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split, and when I interrupt the velvety smoothness of my more or less literate syntax with a few sudden words of bar-room vernacular, that is done with the eyes wide open and the mind relaxed but attentive.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Fix your eyes on perfection and you make almost everything speed towards it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are ashamed to seem evasive in the presence of a straightforward man, cowardly in the presence of a brave one, gross in the eyes of a refined one, and so on. We always imagine, and in imagining share, the judgments of the other mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My importance to the world is relatively small. On the other hand, my importance to myself is tremendous. I am all I have to work with, to play with, to suffer and to enjoy. It is not the eyes of others that I am wary of, but of my own. I do not intend to let myself down more than I can possibly help, and I find that the fewer illusions I have about myself or the world around me, the better company I am for myself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The eyes see only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The path of least resistance and least trouble is a mental rut already made. It requires troublesome work to undertake the alternation of old beliefs. Self-conceit often regards it as a sign of weakness to admit that a belief to which we have once committed ourselves is wrong. We get so identified with an idea that it is literally a pet notion and we rise to its defense and stop our eyes and ears to anything different.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are flood and drought over the eyes and in the mouth, dead water and dead sand contending for the upper hand. The parched eviscerate soil gapes at the vanity of toil, laughs without mirth. This is the death of the earth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When the eyes say one thing, and the tongue another, a practiced man relies on the language of the first.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Welcome evermore to gods and men is the self-helping man. For him all doors are flung wide: him all tongues greet, all honors crown, all eyes follow with desire. Our love goes out to him and embraces him, because he did not need it. We solicitously and apologetically caress and celebrate him, because he held on his way and scorned our disapprobation. The gods loved him because men hated him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
She learned to say things with her eyes that others waste time putting into wordsMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

What makes a church great in the eyes of God? Participation, proclamation, preservation, and propagation. Every church ought to exhibit all four.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Learning is, in too many cases, but a foil to common sense; a substitute for true knowledge. Books are less often made use of as spectacles to look at nature with, than as blinds to keep out its strong light and shifting scenery from weak eyes and indolent dispositions. The learned are mere literary drudges.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Friendship Never explain -- your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe it anyway. A real friend never gets in your way, unless you happen to be on the way down. A friend is someone you can do nothing with and enjoy it. However much we guard ourselves against it, we tend to shape ourselves in the image others have of us. It is not so much the example of others we imitate, as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their words.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not so much the example of others we imitate as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their words.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
They seldom looked happy. They passed one another without a word in the elevator, like silent shades in hell, hell-bent on their next look from a handsome stranger. Their next rush from a popper. The next song that turned their bones to jelly and left them all on the dance floor with heads back, eyes nearly closed, in the ecstasy of saints receiving the stigmata.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What a comfort a dull but kindly person is, to be sure, at times! A ground-glass shade over a gas-lamp does not bring more solace to our dazzled eyes than such a one to our minds.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
But who would rush at a benighted man, and give him two black eyes for being blind?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Although gold dust is precious, when it gets in your eyes it obstructs your vision.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Those who do unlawful acts are no more sinners in the eyes of God than we who think them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One is not idle because one is absorbed. There is both visible and invisible labor. To contemplate is to toil, to think is to do. The crossed arms work, the clasped hands act. The eyes upturned to Heaven are an act of creation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Justice should remove the bandage from her eyes long enough to distinguish between the vicious and the unfortunate.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The superior man is the providence of the inferior. He is eyes for the blind, strength for the weak, and a shield for the defenseless.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The real meaning of enlightenment is to gaze with undimmed eyes on all darkness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
