The Eyes Have It

If you want to know how the person in front of you really feels about you, take a good look at what happens with the pupil of her/his eyes. The eyes are the mirror of the soul. Take care of your eyes with gentleness. Here are some famous quotes about eyes… enjoy!

"There is a road from the eye to heart that does not go through the intellect." G. K. Chesterton

"The eyes are not responsible when the mind does the seeing." Publilius Syrus "The eyes indicate the antiquity of the soul." Ralph Waldo Emerson

"No eyes that have seen beauty ever lose their sight." Jean Toomer "Weak eyes are fondest of glittering objects." Thomas Carlyle

"The eyes have one language everywhere." George Herbert "The eye is the jewel of the body." Henry David Thoreau

"The eye sees a thing more clearly in dreams than the imagination awake." Leonardo da Vinci

"He had but one eye and the pocket of prejudice runs in favor of two." Charles Dickens "A wanton eye is a messenger of an unchaste heart." Saint Aurelius Augustine

"The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend." Henri Bergson

And finally, from Groucho Marx ,the man whose bushy, gesturing eyebrows are as famous as his comedy, "Who are you going to believe, me or your own eyes?"

I love your blog. Especially enjoyed the juxtiposition of visual collage with the words. My favorite is about the eyes. Took two of your comments, GK Chesterton, an old favorite of mine and Henri Bergson. l plan to write a blog about them. Chesterton is talking about the ventral vagus nervous system and Bergson perception.
Wanted to write comments about your kitties and the pig flying over the moon, much more timely than the cow, but did not want to join another email group so will say it now. I LOVE what you are doing and where you are taking it. This is exactly as you said, a fabulous way of integrating and synthersizing a life to make it one's own. Good work!
