Eyes speak a universal language, and no
interpreter is needed
Where words are restrained, the eyes often talk a great deal.
These eyes tell the stories of children around the world.
They speak of war, deprivation, and loss.
There is a road from the eye to heart that does not go through the intellect.
- G. K. Chesterton
Eyes are more accurate witnesses than ears.
- Heraclitus of Ephesus, 535 – c. 475 BCE
From women’s eyes this doctrine I derive:
They sparkle still the right Promethean fire;
They are the books, the arts, the academes,
That show, contain and nourish all the world.
- William Shakespeare, Love’s Labour’s Lost
Almost nothing need be said when you have eyes.
- Tarjei Vesaas, Norwegian Poet
Could a greater miracle take place than for us to
look through each other’s eyes for an instant?
- Henry David Thoreau
The countenance is the portrait of the soul, and the eyes mark its intentions.
- Marcus Tullius Cicero, 106 – 43 BCE
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes,
but in having new eyes.
