“I kind of roll my eyes when people say they make music for themselves or they make art just for themselves, because, maybe in their head, what that means is that they’re making it for someone who they don’t think is real. Their audience isn’t real. But it’s still a communicative act. It’s still an outward manifestation of longing.”

― Arca

― Aristophanes

“In constructing the plot and working it out with the proper diction, the poet should place the scene, as far as possible, before his eyes. In this way, seeing everything with the utmost vividness, as if he were a spectator of the action, he will discover what is in keeping with it, and be most unlikely to overlook inconsistencies.”

― Aristotle

“Wicked thoughts and worthless efforts gradually set their mark on the face, especially the eyes.”

― Arthur Schopenhauer

“I would be remiss not to take advantage of this platform that I have, because I don’t want any other woman or girl feeling like the way that I felt: that I didn’t belong, that I would never succeed in the medium that I’m choosing to pursue because my hair isn’t straight or my skin isn’t light or my eyes aren’t bright.”

― Ashleigh Murray

― Ashley Graham

“I make up stories in my head all the time, but I’ve never written them down. But I write a lot of story songs. Any song I’m singing, I sort of see it like a movie in my head. That’s why a lot of times I close my eyes when I’m singing.”

― Ashley Monroe

“Frankly, the reason I joined MENSA is because I was dating a guy at the time who spoke five languages and could solve a Rubik’s Cube literally with his eyes closed because it’s just an algorithm.”

“Linkin Park has been a band for such a long time, for me, in my eyes. I was 16 years old when I first heard them. I heard ‘Hybrid Theory,’ and I was floored at what I was listening to. It was angry yet melodic, it had hip-hop and it had – it was just different, good. Good songwriting.”

― Austin Carlile

“When my first daughter was born, my husband held her in his hands and said, ‘My God, she’s so beautiful.’ I unwrapped the baby from her blankets. She was average size, with long thin fingers and a random assortment of toes. Her eyes were close set, and she had her father’s hooked nose. It looked better on him.”

― Ayelet Waldman

“In the CoverGirl Melting Pout Matte Lipstick ads, I am wearing this gorgeous purple color called Seismic. It’s such a different shade, but it works well with my face. I’ve got hazel eyes, and so purple kind of compliments it. It’s a nice shade to put on when I’m feeling a little sassy.”

― Ayesha Curry

“People don’t realize it hurts my feelings when someone looks at my hair or my eyes, and says, ‘But you’re not actually black. You’re black, but you’re not black black, because your eyes are green.’ I’m like, ‘What? No, no, I’m definitely black.’ Even some of my closest friends have said that. It’s been a bit touchy for me.”

― Ayesha Curry

“My wife Martha used to call me Ol’ Lemon Face because of my facial contortions when I play Lucille. I squeeze my eyes and open my mouth, raise my eyebrows, cock my head and God knows what else. I look like I’m in torture, when in truth, I’m in ecstasy. I don’t do it for show. Every fiber of my being is tingling.”

“Good fiction creates empathy. A novel takes you somewhere and asks you to look through the eyes of another person, to live another life.”

― Barbara Kingsolver

“I’ve always seen the world through the eyes of a scientist. I love the predictable outcomes that science gives us, the control over the world that that can render.”

― Barrett Wilbert Weed

“I Sellotape whole tins of sardines to my face at night, attach two squeezed lemon rinds to my armadillo-skinned elbows, and put cucumber on my eyes. By the time I’m finished, I look like a fruit salad with added fish. In the morning, the pillow is pretty much a write-off.”

― Barry Humphries

“I worked for Oprah Winfrey for two years right out of college in 2004. I was a director’s assistant on the film ‘Their Eyes Were Watching God,’ which Oprah produced.”

― Barun Sobti

“I don’t believe in an eye for an eye. I believe in two eyes for an eye.”

― Bas Rutten

“We are blind: we cannot see God with our senses, and our deductions from what we know or are thinking about the word of God itself – how little power they have to bring us to God! We are blind, and our eyes need the touch of our Lord’s hand to enable us at times to even see dimly.”

― Basil Hume

“It’s one thing to see the suffering and dying on the television screen and quite another to be there and experience it. You cannot look into the eyes of a starving child and yourself remain the same.”

― Basil Hume

“I envy those old Greek bathers, into whose hands were delivered Pericles, and Alcibiades, and the perfect models of Phidias. They had daily before their eyes the highest types of Beauty which the world has ever produced; for of all things that are beautiful, the human body is the crown.”

― Bayard Taylor

“Always trust the process. I’m a firm believer in that. You know, you keep your eyes on the destination, and of course there will always be detours, but if you’re moving towards it, you will always get there.”

― Becky G

“I know most players do, but I always keep both eyes opened. I still do it. I see two shafts, the real one and the transparent one. I look for what’s on the inside edge of the transparent one.”

― Ben Crenshaw

“Sometimes I think there ought to be a coat of arms for all of us who listen to Oberst’s band Bright Eyes past the age of twenty-six. ‘With Love and Shame,’ the motto would read. The handwriting would be the cramped and tortured scribble of a high school freshman.”

― Ben Dolnick

“I know very well that to admit to loving Bright Eyes is to admit to having an overgrown brain region devoted to self-pity, sentimentality, regret, and a handful of other not very appealing emotional states.”

― Ben Dolnick

“Conservative voters will put up with a lot of things in the culture that disagree with their views. They have proven time and again they will roll their eyes at actors and musicians saying negative things about the presidents and candidates they vote for and still consume their product.”

― Ben Domenech

“It will make a weak man mighty. it will make a mighty man fall. It will fill your heart and hands or leave you with nothing at all. It’s the eyes for the blind and legs for the lame. It is the love for hate and pride for shame. That’s the power of the gospel.”

― Ben Harper

“Going to prison is like dying with your eyes open.”

― Bernardo Bertolucci

“With a stretch belt, anything can be a dress – a dinner napkin, a tablecloth, even a towel. Just wrap and snap, and away you go in an incredible outfit. Another plus is that the belt will pull all eyes to your lovely curves, and they even look good around a coat or a jacket.”

― Beth Ditto

“Even if you’re only wearing trainers and a vest, eyeliner will instantly transform you. People always look put-together when their make-up’s on and their eyes are popping – just ask Amy Winehouse!”

― Beth Ditto

“I think that anytime that you can open your eyes and see all that you have and all that you’ve been blessed with, it’s the greatest way to connect you with God, just being grateful rather than always wanting more, wanting to be different, wanting to be better.”

― Beth Hart

“Pilot season after pilot season, I read the same part: the wife who rolls her eyes at her somewhat immature husband that she still loves. Literally.”

― Beth Littleford

“I’m not a huge fan of eye shadow. You spend 20 minutes working on it and then make one mistake and have to remove it all! I’d rather play up my eyes with winged eyeliner.”

― Bethany Mota

“A lady likes to be complimented on her looks, her eyes, her figure. But the personality comments are much appreciated.”

― Betty White

“I don’t seem to require a lot of sleep. I just – if I get four, five good hours, I’m fine. But sleeping is sort of dull. There’s a lot of other good stuff that you can do without just lying down and closing your eyes.”

― Betty White

“I was in line at a store and there was a little girl, she was standing in line next to me and some other girls had come up to me and recognized me from ‘Pretty Little Liars.’ When they walked away, this girl was staring at me, and her eyes got so big, and she started crying. It was, like, the cutest thing.”

― Bill James

“We uploaded ‘Ocean Eyes’ to SoundCloud, and it started getting a lot of plays pretty much immediately.”

― Billie Eilish

“My brother had written ‘Ocean Eyes,’ and we recorded it, basing all of the production around contemporary and lyrical dance. I think of most songs that way – if you can’t dance to a song, it’s not a song.”

― Billie Eilish

“I had such a tie with my eyes and my hands. I could look at a telephone pole 40 yards away, take out a 7-iron, and hit it 10 times in a row. I had something special. And somehow, I really understood the game, all without having a lot of guidance.”

― Billy Casper

― BJ the Chicago Kid

“The reason I do photographs is to help people understand my music, so it’s very important that I am the same, emotionally, in the photographs as in the music. Most people’s eyes are much better developed than their ears. If they see a certain emotion in the photograph, then they’ll understand the music.”

― Bjork

“We view things not only from different sides, but with different eyes; we have no wish to find them alike.”

― Brandon Stanton

“I was making projections about ‘Humans of New York,’ back when I had zero followers, that made all my friends and family roll their eyes.

― Brooke Foss Westcott

“There are some things you have to accept come with being really good at something: more attention, more eyes on you, every move you make – whether good or bad, you have to answer. If that’s the price of where I want to get, it’ll be worth it.”

― Brooks Koepka

“A mutation can create an alternative form of a phenomenon – a phenotype or trait – and we can learn a lot by seeing this alternative state. Once I saw a mouse with no eyelids.

“Our American heritage is greater than any one of us. It can express itself in very homely truths; in the end it can lift up our eyes beyond the glow in the sunset skies.”

― Carey Mulligan

“People might think I’m very hard, what with my black make-up, my hair over my eyes, etc. My innocence didn’t always help me, but it did preserve something in me that maybe others don’t have anymore. I’m inside my bubble, you could say, and thankfully so, because I don’t think daily life is always great. It protects me.”

― Carine Roitfeld

“When I set my eyes on the gold at the world championships, I was able to maintain that focus that whole day. That’s what I aim to do in Rio – my focus is gold, so I can keep in that good state; I can’t get too complacent. I can’t relax; I can’t be content. I need to be 100 per cent switched on.”

― Carmen Marton

“Writing is communication, and you don’t know how you’re doing until you put it in front of someone else’s eyes. You also learn from critiquing other writers’ work.”

― Carol Berg

“I’ve had work done on my eyes in the past. However, I think there are limits. I wouldn’t ever have too much done, as it looks unnatural, and I don’t think you should do anything to your lips, as it changes the entire shape of your face.”

― Carolina Herrera

“I put the Manuka Doctor Targeted Wrinkle Filler around my eyes – it is a great pick me up for when my eyes are tired.”

― Caroline Flack

― Caroline Flack

“When you study a dog you love, you find beauty in every small detail, and so it is with Lucille: I have become enchanted by the small asymmetrical whorls of white fur on either side of her chest, and by her tail, which she carries in a high confident curve, and by her eyes, which are watchful and intelligent, the color of chestnuts.”

― Caroline Knapp

“The first real Cassini image that brought tears to my eyes was an image of Jupiter. I didn’t expect it to look so detailed.”

― Carolyn Porco

“I just can’t stand the sound of my voice sometimes, or how my face looks. There are always a few times at every premiere when I just have to cover my eyes when I’m up there.”

― Carrie-Anne Moss

“I think you have to take each movie for its own value. There will be those you’ll roll your eyes over and others you can’t wait to see. It all has to do with the intention. If someone’s intention is just to make money and exploit something for profit, then it’s not good. If it’s thoughtfully done, the proof’s in the pudding.”

― Carrie-Anne Moss

“I love eye shadows that are shimmery and playing with colors. There’s just more you can do with your eyes.”

“When we were making Flickr, we called it the ‘Eyes of the World.’ The idea was that everybody, everywhere, is looking. It was this sense of being able to penetrate worlds that you had never been able to access before – of global, universal travel.”

― Chaka Fattah

“Two eyes are given for a reason. One eye to always look at the opportunity. The second eye to always keep looking at the challenges. Because if you don’t balance both, it’s very easy to get carried away one way or the other. And it’s when you balance the two that you find the most sustainable model.”

― Chanda Kochhar

“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.”

― Charles Horton Cooley

“As social beings we live with our eyes upon our reflection, but have no assurance of the tranquillity of the waters in which we see it.”

― Charles Horton Cooley

“I had a little insight into life that most kids probably didn’t have. My mother was a schoolteacher, and my father was a social worker. Through his eyes I saw the underside of society.”

― Charles Kuralt

“My mother was a stout woman with a man’s name – Billie. She was plain-faced with honest eyes – no black grease by the lash line, no blue powder on the lids, eyebrows not plucked up high and thin.”

“War in men’s eyes shall be A monster of iniquity In the good time coming. Nations shall not quarrel then, To prove which is the stronger; Nor slaughter men for glory’s sake; – Wait a little longer.”

“I think the process of ‘I Love It’ becoming such a big song opened my eyes to sides of the industry that I’d never been aware of, which I wasn’t so into.”

― Charli XCX

“I have walked into several pubs, and guys in there have said to me, ‘My God, you are the girl off the dancing horse.’ They have got no idea about dressage, and they said, ‘I can’t work out whether you make the horse do that or the horse does it itself – we just couldn’t tell – but it brought tears to our eyes.’”

― Charlotte Dujardin

“With injuries, every match varies. The black eyes are accidents. The broken noses are accidents. But the bumps from when we land on the mat, they’re hard. I think it looks easier, or the fans don’t really understand what’s happening, but it does take a toll.”

― Charlotte Flair

“I’m built for wrestling. I have a high pain tolerance. My nose has been broken a couple times. Black eyes.”

― Charlotte Flair

― Chelsea Handler

“Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are ridiculous-looking – especially her. They’re so strange and charismatic and weird. It’s pretty hard to take your eyes off them.”

― Chelsea Handler

“Manipulating people is what’s so fun about poker. I love that you can just look into someone’s eyes and lie – and it’s perfectly acceptable.”

― Cheryl Hines

“In my eyes, I think it’s important that if you’re doing something you’re proud of and that is genuine and authentic, you have a responsibility to bring that to as many people as possible, just for the sheer reason that there are musicians out there who are manufacturing emotions that aren’t genuine.”

― Chet Faker

“If what you do in life is perform to open up eyes and minds, to make people laugh, then it better damn well be new! It shouldn’t be just a repetitious ‘Hey, I’m still here!’”

“I live half the year in Nigeria, the other half in the U.S. But home is Nigeria – it always will be. I consider myself a Nigerian who is comfortable in the world. I look at it through Nigerian eyes.”

― Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

“What I find problematic is the suggestion that when, say, Madonna adopts an African child, she is saving Africa. It’s not that simple. You have to do more than go there and adopt a child or show us pictures of children with flies in their eyes. That simplifies Africa.”

― Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

“To write lyrics and sing stuff used to be a real chore for me, especially before this ‘Diamond Eyes’ record. I was spending years making records.”

― Chino Moreno

“I know that when I attached my sense of identity a little too closely to my work that I might be distracting myself from feelings of unworthiness. It wasn’t the number of hours I worked or how bloodshot my eyes were that defined the difference. It was something internal.”

― Chip Conley

“I’ve just tried to keep my eyes open, tried to read everything you can, and tried to see whether I see myself within it. If I do, then I can get excited about it.”

― Chiwetel Ejiofor

“I think, in the eyes of a lot of circles, especially within football, I’m the soft guy. But I’m fine with being the soft, healthy guy.”

― Chris Borland

“Being an outsider means not being heard, not having a voice. It means being treated as a second-class citizen, being diminished in the eyes of others. We have all felt this way at one time or another, but some feel it more consistently. Unfortunately, our schools often do not embrace the talents of many of their occupants.”

― Chris Crutcher

“My years as a therapist working with abuse and neglect families taught me at least one important lesson for my own life. Never judge until you can see through the eyes of that person you are judging, and then… never judge.”

― Chris Crutcher

“Kenya, being a third world country, from a young age your eyes are open to the real world. I’d like to think growing up there taught me to stand on my own two feet, make my own decisions about what I wanted to be.”

― Chris Froome

“I don’t think I’m ugly per se, but on bad days, I have been told that I look like the monster from ‘The Hills Have Eyes.’ That was extremely confidence-shattering, so I try to take care of myself.”

― Chris Gethard

“My eyes are wide open… you serve in Iraq, your eyes are wide open.”

― Chris Gibson

“I am just pitifully nostalgic. I can’t help but roll my eyes at myself frequently. I mean, I still shoot black-and-white film. And I am constantly reminiscing about the ‘good old days.’ I’m 28 years old. There haven’t even been that many ‘good old days.’ But still, I love to look back.”

― Chris Lowell

“I would love to close my eyes and see myself with my girlfriend when we’re 99 years old and I have a pipe and she’s knitting a sweater, and I hope that’s the way it goes. I think it’s a challenge every day.”

― Chris Messina

“As a species, the look of another of our species into our eyes has a great power. It can mean a lot of different things: aggression, love.”

― Chris Milk

“As a book editor, you need to pitch every one of your books again and again, dozens of times, for months on end. From a quick conversation with your boss or a letter that’ll be read by just one person, to a five-minute speech in front of 50 colleagues or cover copy that’ll be in front of millions of eyes.”

― Chris Pavone

“The mass audience doesn’t want to see you if you aren’t perfect. If you don’t look a certain way, if you don’t have big pecs and great skin and the perfect eyes. And it’s unfortunate, because kids are growing up with body image dysmorphia because not everyone is represented on the screen.”

― Chris Pine

“How can you build something for someone else if you don’t have enough familiarity with them to imagine the world through their eyes?”

― Chris Sacca

“My beauty tricks revolve around eyes. For the early morning shoots, I pop eye pads in the freezer the night before, and when I take them out in the morning they are already cold and active and are great under my eyes. I keep my eye pads right next to my red velvet Ben & Jerry’s in the freezer.”

― Chrissy Teigen

“We go to the movies to forget about time, to be in a dream state. And it’s entertainment, distraction, from the fact that everything is kind of crumbling in front of our eyes.”

― Christian Marclay

― Christian Nestell Bovee

“I still have my eyes on the prize: I want to be that old lady onstage shaking her hips and singing her greatest hits.”

“Sexiness is about confidence and individuality. I can’t keep my eyes off the women you see in cities like London, New York and Paris – the way they carry themselves and put themselves together are always so unique.”

― Christina Hendricks

“In the world’s eyes, what they know of me is from the blogs. What they know is from the media.”

― Christina Milian

“She gave up beauty in her tender youth, gave all her hope and joy and pleasant ways; she covered up her eyes lest they should gaze on vanity, and chose the bitter truth.”

― Christina Rossetti

“I might show facts as plain as day: but, since your eyes are blind, you’d say, ‘Where? What?’ and turn away.”

― Christina Rossetti

“I love a good challenge of looking with new eyes at a tried and true recipe in my recipe Rolodex.”

― Christina Tosi

― Christina Tosi

“I often close my eyes because I can’t tolerate violence.”

― Christine Baranski

“My father started out as a riveter, but he had the soul of an artist. He worshiped Shakespeare and had aspirations to be an actor. He claimed that from the first day he laid eyes on me, I was going to be this great dramatic actress.”

― Christine Ebersole

“It’s a wonderful narrative device to bring someone from the outside and look through his eyes if you want to describe the absurdity and preposterous reality that is accepted amongst the ones who are inside.”

― Christoph Waltz

“From now until the end of time no one else will ever see life with my eyes, and I mean to make the best of my chance.”

― Christopher Morley

“Denys Cowan and Dwayne Turner’s visions of Wakanda as an ersatz African Epcot Center opened my eyes to the unexploited possibilities; these men, both of whom are African American, together with writer Peter B. Gillis, created an African Asgard of sorts, and I just went, ‘Oh, my.’”

― Christopher Priest

“A time will come when men will stretch out their eyes. They should see planets like our Earth.”

“This is my greatest regret – that my music is not being played, and more people aren’t seeing Chubby Checker. That’s very painful for me. Many nights, I have tears in my eyes about that.”

― Chubby Checker

“Remember that my view, the only true view I can see with, is through the black eyes that I have.”

― Chuck Berry

“People got to understand, the fighters at the top are the fighters that are supposed to get paid because they’re the guys that are bringing people in, bringing eyes to the TV, getting pay-per-views buys, and putting people in the seats. I mean, that’s what it comes down to.”

― Chuck Liddell

“You have no idea what it is like to constantly disappoint people. You see it the moment you meet them. You see in their eyes that they expected something so entirely different, and here they are meeting… you.”

― Chuck Palahniuk

“I use Revlon waterproof mascara. And then I love a smokey eye when I perform because I think it’s important to make your eyes pop when you’re on stage.”

― Ciara

“I use Maybelline’s eye studio gel eyeliner and simply glide it onto the eyelids to shape the makeup. Then, I use brown eyeshadow to add more detail to make my eyes look deeper.”

― CL

“The big question is always, ‘Eyes or lips?’ I tend to go with the eyes because I’ve got a lot more material to work with now – and it saves me from reapplying lipstick! I’m a pretty low-maintenance person and it’s too excessive to exaggerate both the eyes and lips.”

― Claire Danes

“I want people to be inspired that I’ve always strived for excellence and I’ve always gone beyond what anybody ever thought I could do, what I thought I myself could do. And I’ve allowed myself to be inspired, kept my eyes open and my senses open to inspiration around me.”

― Clint Howard

“The sexiest part of the body is the eyes. That’s what I believe.”

― Clive Owen

― Coco Austin

“I had a habit of watching classic wrestling pretty much on repeat in the locker rooms. With the influx of talent at WWE, with guys like Kevin Owens, he was one of the first people to open my eyes up to the world that is PWG and BOLA.”

“My advice is don’t scrub your makeup off your eyes; be gentle.”

― Colbie Caillat

“I usually end up falling for one of my really good guy friends because I know everything about them, and you fall in love with their personalities, and it makes them become attractive to you in your eyes.”

― Colbie Caillat

“But we’re born as children and we look at the world with open eyes… And we don’t judge and we don’t betray. We’re not jealous. We’re not envious. We’re not even weary, which is a danger also as kids. They have to learn a certain amount of awareness.”

― Colin Farrell

“My wife is French, and so I get to see America through her eyes, which informs a lot of little moments. It means I can poke fun at very particular things about us.”

― Colin Trevorrow

“I like to feel the burn of the audience’s eyes when I’m whispering all my darkest secrets into the microphone.”

― Conor Oberst

“In many ways Bright Eyes is really a studio project. We form bands to tour, but it really is – you know, we take the songs and we figure out how to decorate them and it’s all in the studio; we build the songs that way.”

― Conor Oberst

“On every Bright Eyes record, there’s some kind of sound collage that begins it. Some of them have dialogue, some don’t. I like it because it can kind of slow down the attention span a bit. It’s a way to draw you in to the rest of the record.”

― Conor Oberst

“To outsiders it probably seems like splitting hairs, but to me, Bright Eyes is a simply the collaboration between myself and Mike Mogis and Nate Walcott. What you hear is definitely the sum of all our ideas and represents all three of us. But I still write the songs myself.”

“When you see a fish you don’t think of its scales, do you? You think of its speed, its floating, flashing body seen through the water… If I made fins and eyes and scales, I would arrest its movement, give a pattern or shape of reality. I want just the flash of its spirit.”

“I can move both of my eyes separately in different directions.”

“Wearing sunglasses at night hurts your eyes after a while.”

“I feel like a lot of the portrayals of, in particular, younger minority ethnic characters on television, a lot of their dialogue, a lot of their characteristics, a lot of their personality in a writer’s eyes, is kind of propelled through their ethnicity.”

― Corey Reynolds

“The coolest thing for me to do was listen to Pearl Jam’s ‘Ten,’ Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind,’ or Soundgarden and play along to it and think about how awesome it would be to be in one of those bands and be up on stage. When I’d close my eyes at 13 and dream of being in Pearl Jam or one of those bands, it was exactly like how it is now with the band I’m in.”

― Coy Bowles

“I have had my eyes opened to a different side to me. I’m a much happier person. There was always this Jekyll and Hyde thing with me.”

“When you look at the history of slavery in the United States, and you see the impact that ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’ had, culture sometimes is the only way that we can put people’s eyes on an emotional truth and make them feel why something has to change.”

― Craig Mazin

“There’s something about seeing somebody who thinks they’re great and is so wrapped up in their moves, voice, and performance that makes it so wonderfully charming that you can’t take your eyes off. That’s why we all remember William Hung from those first years of ‘American Idol. It’s the William Hung effect.”

― Craig Robinson

“Even with seemingly simple things like eye color, you can’t tell from my genetic code whether I have blue eyes or not. So it’s naive to think that complex human behaviors, like risk-seeking, are driven by changes in one or two genes.”

― Craig Venter

“By the time I was a teen, I was an expert at scanning people’s faces, always in search of eyes like mine. I devoured glossy magazines, ever mindful of the language we used to talk about beauty. The sections on how to apply makeup intrigued me most precisely because their audience never included me.”

― Crystal Hana Kim

“I was a fan of football. I was more of a Raiders fan, but I knew who O.J. was. I knew The Juice, and I remember the Hertz commercials with him running to the airport and whatnot. So he was a highbrow celebrity in my eyes.”

― Cuba Gooding, Jr.

“I think that each season we, as an industry, evolve more and more in such a great way, and I’m really excited about it. We’re able to put fashion into the hands of the consumer and eyes of the consumer, and I just think that there’s no filter anymore; you just put it out there. There’s an instant commentary. I think it’s so interesting.”

― Cynthia Rowley

“Design in art, is a recognition of the relation between various things, various elements in the creative flux. You can’t invent a design. You recognize it, in the fourth dimension. That is, with your blood and your bones, as well as with your eyes.”

― D. H. Lawrence

“The eyes of a poet discover in each person a unique and irreplaceable humanity. While arrogant intellect seeks to control and manipulate the world, the poetic spirit bows with reverence before its mysteries.”

― Dan Amboyer

“Fiction is a particular kind of rhetoric, a way of thinking that I think can be useful in your life. It asks you to image the world through someone else’s eyes, and it allows you to try to empathize with situations that you haven’t actually experienced.”

― Dan Chaon

“The eyes of the world are fixed on the U.S. to see if we have the political courage and moral sense to solve our debt crisis.”

― Dan Coats

“Russia’s assertiveness in global affairs is something I look upon with great concern, which we need to address with eyes wide open and a healthy degree of skepticism.”

― Dan Hill

“When you are in a growth company, you have to really open people’s eyes to the bigger possibilities so they think differently. Once they understand how to define success and what their role is in success, they make better decisions, and you can push decision-making down.”

― Dan Rosensweig

“When I was in high school I got involved in the fringe theater scene in Chicago, and I met some openly gay people. I could see that it got better, that they were happy and loved and supported. I saw with my own eyes that it got better.”

― Dan Savage

“I’m quite a reserved person, but when it comes to being on stage, something just clicks, and I sort of run around like a mad man. I find myself jumping in the crowd, climbing up on things, and dancing absolutely atrociously. I like to see the whites of everybody’s eyes, jump around with everybody.”

― Dan Smith

“The fun little proofs that you can do with algebra – they are sort of like crowd pleasers in a way. Like, the .9 repeating equaling one. It doesn’t take a lot of algebra to prove that, and it’s really fun. It kind of wows people. It’s like they’re watching magic happen right before their eyes.”

― Danica McKellar

― Daniel Day-Lewis

“Justice is always violent to the party offending, for every man is innocent in his own eyes.”

― Daniel Defoe

“Empathy is about standing in someone else’s shoes, feeling with his or her heart, seeing with his or her eyes. Not only is empathy hard to outsource and automate, but it makes the world a better place.”

― Daniel H. Pink

“When I was in my teens, Yehudi Menuhin, who was at work on his project ‘The Music of Man,’ introduced me to the great astronomer Carl Sagan. It was Sagan who first opened my eyes to the magnitude of the universe, and essentially to the notion of ‘music of the spheres.’”

― Daniel Hope

“The truth is that a campaign defines how the electorate will see their president – and this all the more true when shaping the president’s image in the eyes of the largest constituency that will actually not vote for them: the international community.”

― Daniel Ricciardo

“I had been on another procedural show, ‘Cold Case,’ for seven years, and I certainly respected the legacy of ‘Law & Order,’ even though I had only seen a handful of episodes. Being a dad meant the reality was that I probably knew more about Dora and Diego. But I saw the show with fresh eyes, and I wasn’t coming in with a bunch of baggage.”

― Darcey Bussell

“When you’re drawing something, you kind of run a movie in your head. You might close your eyes or stare into the distance and kind of see a movie unfolding and, you know, grab a certain moment or think, ‘Oh, yeah, that’s when we need just the point that he appears around the corner but just as she’s getting into the car,’ you know?”

― Dave Gibbons

“When you have kids, you see life through different eyes. You feel love more deeply and are maybe a little more compassionate. It’s inevitable that that would make its way into your songwriting.”

― Dave Grohl

― David Arquette

“Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird?”

― David Attenborough

“Apart from anything else, I am designed by evolution, like we all are: if we see a little thing like that, big eyes, tiny nose, we go ‘aaah’. That’s what evolution does. We are programmed to do that. So to find babies the most amazing, isn’t surprising, I don’t think.”

― David Attenborough

“You start out with your eyes wide open, and you’ve got dreams, and we worked really, really hard, and ours came true. So – and we’re fortunate enough to keep putting out number one records, and we’re fortunate enough to get out there and keep playing, and we truly have a blast.”

― David Bryan

― David Cameron

“I look fine. I’ve had no surgery apart from an operation I had decades ago to remove the fat under my eyes. My mum looked 30 when she was 60, so I guess I owe it all to genes and hair dye.”

― David Cassidy

“People have managed to avert their eyes and hope for the best.”

― David Chalmers

― David Joseph Schwartz

“I remember that Charles Schulz, at the end of his life, had eyes full of tears for Charlie Brown. I thought about the reason for all his emotion: he had lived for 50 years with them.”

― David Mazzucchelli

“I feel that every day, all of us now are being blasted by information design. It’s being poured into our eyes through the Web, and we’re all visualizers now; we’re all demanding a visual aspect to our information. There’s something almost quite magical about visual information. It’s effortless; it literally pours in.”

― David McCandless

“By visualizing information, we turn it into a landscape that you can explore with your eyes: a sort of information map. And when you’re lost in information, an information map is kind of useful.”

― David McCandless

“Maybe it’s old-fashioned, but I’ve always preferred to see players with my own eyes than on a video or going on somebody else’s recommendation. If that means getting up early and taking a flight, then so be it. Our success at Everton came from having a great recruitment team who I made sure were out watching the players.”

― David Moyes

“One of the skills you have to master in theater is the ability to make the audience believe that things that aren’t there are there – just like when you’re acting against CGI. Also, in a theater, the people in the back row can’t see the whites of your eyes. Or your lips moving as you deliver dialogue.”

― David Oyelowo

“On April 3, 2014, Jane Goodall turned 80. The iconic blond ponytail has gone gray, but the sparkle of intelligence, sly humor, and fierce dedication still shines from her hazel eyes.”

― David Quammen

“You will ultimately be defined by the sum total of your responses to circumstances, situations and events that you probably couldn’t anticipate and indeed probably couldn’t even imagine.

― David Stern

“One of the joys of being a grandparent is getting to see the world again through the eyes of a child.”

― David Suzuki

“I read in ‘Life’ magazine that Asians had developed an operation to enlarge eyes, and I yearned to have this done. I wanted to dye my hair brown and to anglicize my name. Self-hate was the most terrible cost of the war years for me.”

― David Suzuki

“To regret fully is to appreciate how high the stakes are in even the average human life; fully experienced, it turns our eyes, attentive and alert, to a future possibly lived better than our past.”

― David Whyte

“My favorite of all time will always be Christopher Reeve. He’ll always be Superman in my eyes.”

― Dean Cain

“When we exercise, it feels like we’re really out there doing something, whereas spending a few minutes with your eyes closed in meditation may feel a little, well, wimpy.”

― Dean Ornish

“You can meditate on almost anything: a prayer, song, image or word. Close your eyes; sit in a comfortable position. Take a breath, and say the word out loud, emphasizing the humming sound at the end. When you come to the end of the breath, take another one and say the word again. And so on.”

― Dean Ornish

― Deborah Cox

“I am really rather like a beautiful Jersey cow, I have the same pathetic droop to the corners of my eyes.”

― Deborah Kerr

― Declan Rice

“I worked for a lot of candidates, in tough campaigns that lost. Most of my candidates lost until Bill Clinton. There was always a point where you look in their eyes and they knew it was over. And there was never that point with Clinton. He never quit. He never gave up.”

― Dennis Rodman

“If you close your eyes and think about where you feel the most safe, you’re probably not going to tell me it’s in a room full of police. You feel safe where you’re around people that love you, when you have food and shelter, when you’re being pushed to be your best self and learn.”

― DeRay Mckesson

“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.”

“Actors act… Their job is to become this character. And I have, in fact, seen Sam Heughan become Jamie and Caitriona Balfe become Claire right before my eyes. It was an astonishing transformation.”

― Diana Gabaldon

“I was like, ‘I’m going to win Wimbledon!’ I was crazy competitive, leg-slapping, all of that. But when I was 12, I saw ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape,’ and it just opened my eyes to what movies can do and how they change us, and I was like, ‘This is what I want to do. This is what I have to do.’”

― Diana Silvers

“I grew up loving actresses or actors who were very classy but who seemed a little bit mysterious because you couldn’t grasp what they’re really thinking. I mean, Grace Kelly always looked impossibly glamorous, yet you could always see there was something behind her eyes.”

― Diane Kruger

“What I think I sell with my clothes is confidence, so hopefully all my dresses, my accessories, are friends to the women. When you open the closet, and your eyes are swollen, and you don’t like the way you look, you go to your friends.”

― Diane von Furstenberg

“If you take 12 waters from the coconut – not the ones you buy in the store, although that’s good – but the fresh coconuts, the little brown ones with the three eyes, if you take 12 of those within 24 hours, your blood will go back to the way it was when you were born.”

― Dick Gregory

“I have kids, so I can understand the image that footballers have. They are fans of some players; I see in their eyes. They admire and try to imitate their gestures, their words, their celebrations. They love Ronaldo and Messi. Since Euro 2016, though, they have no right to pronounce the name of Ronaldo!”

― Dimitri Payet

“I was always curious about the anxiety a person would feel when you open your mouth and you have an accent. You could have a Ph.D. or be a lawyer, but as soon as you say something, you may be diminished in the eyes of someone else.”

― Dinaw Mengestu

“The only advice I would give young guys is to keep your ears and eyes open. Never see yourself as a finished product.”

― Dirk Nowitzki

“When I think about my MVP season, I will also think about the loss to Golden State. But winning the award as Most Valuable Player of the NBA is just a huge honor. I didn’t really realize how big it was until Mark Cuban had tears in his eyes at the award ceremony.”

― Dirk Nowitzki

“I want to see myself as a student. Keep learning, keep improving, keep your eyes and ears open.”

― Dirk Nowitzki

“I won twenty-eight games in thirty-five and I couldn’t believe my eyes when the Cards sent me a contract with a cut in salary. Mr Rickey said I deserved a cut because I didn’t win thirty games.”

― Dizzy Dean

“I grew up surrounded by all types of cultures – French, Indian, Arabic – a melting pot of cultures, sounds, foods, people, and religions. It opened my eyes early, and I’m grateful for that. It’s not about success in one area; it’s about exploring the world musically and spending time in those places whenever you can.”

― DJ Snake

“I have no problems with my eyes. It was because when I became big, I suddenly I found myself playing on stage with 200,000 people, and that is scary. I remember my manager told me just put on a pair of sunglasses, and that should mitigate the panic. So I tried it, and it worked.”

― DJ Snake

“I was awkward-looking with huge brown eyes, dark brown, pencil-straight hair styled into an old-school Romanian bowl haircut from the 1980s. And I was very, very small. I was always the tiniest kid on my street and in my classes at school… The gym was the one place I didn’t have to worry about feeling awkward for being so petite.”

― Dominique Moceanu

“If I had a pull on ‘One of These Nights,’ on the first high note on ‘One of These Nights,’ that was just a tiny hair flat or something, I could just feel Henley’s eyes scouring into the back of my head. No mistakes were allowed, and it really kept the quality at a high level.”

― Don Felder

“I have more of a relationship with the subject than I do with my camera equipment. To me, camera equipment is like a tin of shoe polish and a brush – I use that as a tool, but my basic camera is my emotion and my eyes. It’s not anything to do with the wonderful cameras I use.”

― Don McCullin

“I played on this soccer team, called Hollywood United, and there were a lot of old ex-international pro-players. We played this benefit match at the Rose Bowl, and the crowd streamed in. It’s so nerve-wracking to go out into a stadium, feeling a billion eyes upon you when you mess up your touches. That’s an overwhelming environment.”

― Donal Logue

“The decision is not whether or not we will ration care. The decision will be whether we ration care with our eyes open.”

― Donald Berwick

“The chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80% of the total health care bill out there. There is going to have to be a very difficult democratic conversation that takes place. The decision is not whether or not we will ration care. The decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open.”

― Donald Berwick

“And now, this is the sweetest and most glorious day that ever my eyes did see.”

― Donald Cargill

“A reader’s eyes may glaze over after they take in a couple of paragraphs about Canadian tariffs or political developments in Pakistan; a story about the reader himself or his neighbors will be read to the end.”

― Donald E. Graham

“I’ve always felt that poetry was particularly erotic, more than prose was… I say that you read poems not with your eyes and not with your ears, but with your mouth. You taste it.”

― Donald Hall

“One thing about television, it brings out personality. People are able to watch me in action. They hear my voice and see my eyes. There’s nothing I can hide. That’s me. Television brings out your flaws, your weaknesses, your strengths, and you truths. The audience either likes you or it doesn’t.”

― Donald Trump

“As a grown woman, I saw the first black president reach down a hand and touch the face of a child like I once was, lifting his eyes toward a better future. But I have never, ever, in all my years seen a leader so committed to delivering that better future to America’s children as Hillary Clinton.”

― Donna Brazile

“As a child, I lived through and survived the segregated South. I sat at the back of the bus at a time when America wasn’t yet as great as it could be. As a grown woman, I saw the first black president reach down a hand and touch the face of a child like I once was, lifting his eyes toward a better future.”

― Donna Brazile

“I think action movies bring more excitement than tears, but I always want to take it to another level. I mean, I think if one appreciates anything in life to a certain degree, it could possibly bring tears to your eyes.”

― Donnie Yen

“Going to the Combine, I had a lot of eyes on me, high praise on me, so I had to perform well at the Combine, or everything would have just went downhill.”

― Donte DiVincenzo

“In my Indian bedroom, the carved, cut-out marble jalis, or screens, which were formerly used by Indian princes to keep their wives from other eyes, have a new purpose: they are not only decorations, but a means of security, for they can be locked without shutting off the air.”

― Doris Duke

“With me, it was just a job. I never had stars in my eyes about the theatre.”

― Doris Eaton Travis

“Seeing is more than a physiological phenomenon… We see not only with our eyes but with all that we are and all that our culture is. The artist is a professional see-er.”

― Dorothea Lange

“While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.”

― Dorothea Lange

“The words that come direct from the people are the greatest… If you substitute one out of your own vocabulary, it disappears before your eyes.”

― Dorothea Lange

“I think there is a hunger for things that wake you up, something that makes you peel back your eyes, that reminds you that you are alive. Art is at its best when it is in the ‘now.’”

― Doug Aitken

“I was the only kid who anybody I knew has ever seen actually walk into a lamppost with his eyes wide open. Everybody assumed that there must be something going on inside, because there sure as hell wasn’t anything going on on the outside!”

― Douglas Adams

“I was the only kid who anybody I knew has ever seen actually walk into a lamppost with his eyes wide open. Everybody assumed that there must be something going on inside, because there sure as hell wasn’t anything going on the outside!”

“Every year I look at the ‘GQ’ Best-Dressed List and have thought what an honour it must be to be included. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw my own face in there.”

― Douglas Trumbull

“I mean, I come from a hippie mentality where I just think to know someone, you need to look into their eyes. Eyes are so important. Until they start melon-balling eyes out, I won’t be able to get to know someone another way.”

― Drew Barrymore

“When I think about it, the happiest and most successful people I know don’t just love what they do, they’re obsessed with solving something that matters to them. They remind me of a dog chasing a tennis ball: Their eyes go a little crazy, the leash snaps and they go bounding off, plowing through whatever gets in the way.”

― Drew Houston

“Undertaker, right up until his last day, was working full time constantly, even when he was beat up, had fire in his eyes. If he couldn’t walk, he was flying around, and he was The Undertaker in every way. That was such an inspiration.”

“Magic touches people in the way great art does. It lets them see the world with new eyes.”

― Duane Michals

“The only thing I know anything about are my own fantasies and anxieties. I don’t trust my eyes. I consider myself to be a short-story writer.”

― Duane Michals

“So I let them be responsible for there particular areas. Then by the time it gets to me that means that there is a problem. I have my eyes open and I need to know something about every department but you don’t want to micro manage any particular department.”

― Dusty Baker

“In fact, their eyes sort of roll around and they kind of go, ‘Hmm’- like there’s something there and they don’t want to talk about it. But they’re not that kind when they are speaking in public.”

― Dwight Schultz

“I dye my eyelashes on occasion so I don’t have to wear mascara. I find that mascara weighs on my eyes, making me sleepy, and it is a pain to take off.”

― Dylan Lauren

“When I was young, all the politicians looked like ancient Latin teachers or greengrocers. They were mumbly, stumbly men with their hair blowing in their eyes, walking into trees, opening the wrong door. They had no idea how to present themselves.”

“My education was the liberty I had to read indiscriminately and all the time, with my eyes hanging out.”

― Eberhard Arnold

“I’ve been in movies with Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson – but I was on ‘The Simpsons,’ and finally, in the eyes of my children, I was a star.”

― Ed Begley, Jr.

“Oh yea, I was a conservative. I was probably hard-line, preoccupied with how much money I would make and how far I would go. But I began seeing a lady who directs a homeless clinic in Fargo. One of our first get-togethers was to a Salvation Army dinner, where I met some jobless Vietnam veterans. It started my transition, opened my eyes.”

― Ed Schultz

“In my eyes, there’s no one better than Stevie Wonder. He’s a top dude.”

― Ed Sheeran

“When I think of character actors, I think of Spencer Tracy; I think of Gene Hackman, Robert Duvall. When I was a young lad watching films, my eyes were on them – watching ‘On the Waterfront,’ my eyes are on Rod Steiger and Karl Malden, not on Brando.”

― Eddie Marsan

“I’ve had an operation on my jaw – I don’t have the big jaw anymore – and I’ve also had an operation on my eyes.”

― Eddie the Eagle

“I feel like we have to keep our eyes on the road. Being nostalgic is like taking an offramp and getting a sandwich – and then you get back on the highway. I don’t want to be spending the rest of my life at the gas station.”

― Eddie Vedder

“When I had a child, everyone was telling me that I was going to see the world through her eyes, and everything was going to get this nice gloss to it. I kept waiting for that to happen, and thought there was a real problem with me that it wasn’t.”

― Eddie Vedder

“People say, ‘How does having kids change your writing? Do you see the world through their eyes?’ No – you just become a faster songwriter… In the old days, you’d be like, ‘Oh I’m gonna work on this song for a few days.’”

― Eddie Vedder

“The shoes and the eyes are windows to a woman’s spirit.”

― Edgardo Osorio

“You’ll never see me with a precision flick of eyeliner. Messy eyeliner became my thing by accident rather than design. If you can’t get it straight, then just work it in around your eyes.”

“Fishing gives me peace, tranquillity. And also, as a forward player, it helps me with my eyes.”

― Edinson Cavani

“The giant squid has the biggest eyes of any animal on the planet. It’s a visual predator.”

― Edith Widder

“If I had been straight, I would have been an entirely different person. I would never have turned toward writing with a burning desire to confess, to understand, to justify myself in the eyes of others… I wouldn’t have been impelled to live in New York and choose the hard poverty of bohemia over the soft comfort of the business world.”

― Edmund White

“I longed for literary celebrity even as I saw with my own eyes how little happiness it brought.”

― Edmund White

“I see things with my own eyes, just as if they were the first eyes that ever saw, and then I set about to tell, as best I can, just what I’ve seen.”

― Edna St. Vincent Millay

“The fiesta of soccer, a feast for the legs that play and the eyes that watch, is much more than a big business run by overlords from Switzerland. The most popular sport in the world wants to serve the people who embrace it.”

― Eduardo Galeano

“Even though professional soccer has become more about business and less about the game itself, I still believe football is a party for the legs that play it and for the eyes that watch it.”

― Eduardo Galeano

“Suddenly a mist fell from my eyes and I knew the way I had to take.”

― Edvard Grieg

“To die is as if one’s eyes had been put out and one cannot see anything any more. Perhaps it is like being shut in a cellar. One is abandoned by all. They have slammed the door and are gone. One does not see anything and notices only the damp smell of putrefaction.”

― Edvard Munch

“A painter may be looking at the world in a way which is very different from everyone else. If he’s a craftsman, he can get other people to see the world through his eyes, and so he enlarges our vision, perception, and there’s great value in that.”

― Edward de Bono

“True hearts have eyes and ears, no tongues to speak; they hear and see, and sigh, and then they break.”

“President Bush and his administration have tried to pull the wool over our eyes and distract the public from this possibly illegal domestic spying scandal.”

― Elvis Mitchell

“I have always thought that my ear is also very influenced by my eyes.”

― Emanuel Ax

“I sounded like a fantasist at school when you’d go round the class, and they’d say, ‘What do Mummy and Daddy do?’ I was like, ‘Mummy’s an actress, and Daddy’s a musician, and he plays his guitar with Bonnie Tyler.’ And the teachers used to, like, roll their eyes, like, ‘She’s mental!’”

― Frankie Avalon

“If I close my eyes, I can remember the first apartment where I lived with my family in Newark, N.J., in the late 1930s. The rooms were lined up like train cars – you had to go through one to get to another – and there wasn’t any heat or hot water.”

― Frankie Valli

“One day, when I was still living at home, a friend told ‘Texas’ Jean Valli about me. She was originally from Syracuse, N.Y., and lived in New Jersey but sang country. One night, she had me come up on stage where she was performing. I sang ‘My Mother’s Eyes,’ and she was knocked out.”

― Frankie Valli

“I have to believe that most people know that ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You’ is my song. But the reaction we get from the audience at ‘Jersey Boys’ is that they didn’t remember how many hits we had. A lot of ‘Oh yeah, I forgot they did that song.’ We had 20 Top 10 hits in the U.S… people forget.”

“I’ll never forget the day when a woman came up to me and said, ‘No, you could never be on a magazine cover. Your face features don’t work; your eyes are small, you have a small face but a big nose.’ I was only 14 and I had never noticed any of that stuff, you know?”

― Gisele Bundchen

“I adore art… when I am alone with my notes, my heart pounds and the tears stream from my eyes, and my emotion and my joys are too much to bear.”

― Giuseppe Verdi

“Almost all words do have color, and nothing is more pleasant than to utter a pink word and see someone’s eyes light up and know it is a pink word for him or her, too.”

― Gladys Taber

“Roger Miller opened a lot of people’s eyes to the possibilities of country music, and it’s making more impact now because it’s earthy material: stories and things that happen to everyday people. I call it ‘people music.’”

― Glen Campbell

“My job is to see the world through the character’s eyes.”

― Glenda Jackson

“Christianity asserts that God made himself human. Those are two different categories – two different levels of worthiness. God is one category, and human is another. That’s a downgrade. After that jump, there are no more categories – no more downgrades. There are no human levels of worthiness. There is no hierarchy in God’s eyes.”

― Glennon Doyle Melton

“Sometimes she wants her pacifier, and other times, she doesn’t even want it near her. She’s very strong and determined. She’s always trying to stand, and she was born with her eyes open, so she’s ready to go.”

― GloZell

“My label, my genre, my everything is happy sad – I do a smiley face with eyes on both sides. So basically to me, it’s totally okay to be happy and sad at the same time, it’s totally okay just to be sad, it’s totally okay to be happy.”

― Gnash

“My eyes are too big, my nose is too flat, my ears stick out, my mouth is too big and my face is too small… my body is thin as a clarinet and my ankles are so skinny that I wear two pairs of bobby socks because I don’t want people to see how thin they are.”

― Goldie Hawn

“Youthfulness is connected to the ability to see things new for the first time. So if your eyes still look at life with wonder, then you will seem young, even though you may not be chronologically young.”

― Goldie Hawn

“Dante himself is open to the suspicion of partiality: it is said, not without apparent ground, that he puts into hell all the enemies of the political cause, which, in his eyes, was that of Italy and God.”

― Goldwin Smith

“Do you feel gloomy? Lift your eyes. Stand on your feet. Say a few words of appreciation and love to the Lord. Be positive.”

― Gotthold Ephraim Lessing

“I feel like covering my children’s eyes when they watch television. It’s better that they spend their time doing something constructive.”

― Govinda

“Connecting with people in person is so important. To look in the eyes of our girls and let them know that you really do support them transcends the impersonal connection of technology.”

― Grace Gealey

“Human beings should stick together. Honestly, if I see a red-haired person with blue eyes now, I say, ‘Is your granny black?’”

― Grace Jones

“They used to call me Firefly when I was a little girl, and I always tried to figure out why I was being called a firefly. I was really black, black, black from the sun. After being in Jamaica for 13 years, my eyes were really beady and white, and my skin was really black. I must have really looked like a fly. My eyes looked like lights, like stars.”

― Grace Jones

“There’s something to be said for being sleepy-eyed. I love sleepy eyes – that sort of vulnerability of being slightly discombobulated because you don’t know where you are. But I like that vulnerability. It’s sexy to me.”

― Grace Potter

“I look out the window sometimes to seek the color of the shadows and the different greens in the trees, but when I get ready to paint I just close my eyes and imagine a scene.”

― Grandma Moses

“I don’t know if you know you’re funny, but you enjoy being funny. I know I’m funny because people tell me I am, but when I watch myself, it doesn’t make me laugh. Does that make sense? Because I know the jokes, and to me, I feel like I’m pulling the wool over people’s eyes. And there are probably people who do not enjoy what I do.”

― Greg Behrendt

“I think, reading about yourself through somebody else’s eyes, you’re always going to have your own story.”

― Greg Sestero

“At the end of the day, I sit down for about five minutes and review all the problems I’m working on, research problems or writing problems, and I go to sleep. Then when I wake up in the morning, I’ve trained myself to not open my eyes and to just lie there and recall the problems and see if there’s anything there.”

― Gregory Benford

“Mission makes athlete-specific products. I always use their sunscreen – it’s an anti-sting formula, which is huge for me because it doesn’t burn my eyes when I’m snowboarding in warmer temperatures.”

“Thou has a thousand eyes and yet not one eye; Thou host a thousand forms and yet not one form.”

― Guru Nanak

“We need to see, and agree that what we seek already lives within us, and we within it. Now we know our one great task: watch for whatever promises us freedom, and then quietly, consciously refuse to see ourselves through the eyes of what we know is incomplete. Then we live wholeness itself, instead of spending our lives looking for it.”

― Guy Finley

“We are all shaped by where we grow up, though that shaping takes different forms. I don’t think there’s any doubt that coming of age in Winnipeg both opened my eyes and made me hungry – if I can subvert all claims to be a real writer by mixing metaphors like that.”

― Guy Gavriel Kay

“I’ve had my eyes opened to so many things. But still, all I really want to do is my truck job. It’s like an ingrained, default setting.”

― Guy Martin

“You would like me to say that the veil will be ripped from the voters’ eyes sometime between now and November, thereby restoring the proper version of Democracy to the House and Senate. I won’t say that, of course. The simple reason is, I don’t know.”

― Gwen Ifill

“Sex in a dance is in the eyes of the beholder. I never thought my dances sexy. I suppose that’s because I see myself with my face washed, and to me I look like a rabbit.”

― Gwen Verdon

“It’s physically hard for me to work. I start to break down, physically. My joints start. I get weepy eyes. I don’t sleep well. I was never a hard worker, I guess. So the voiceover work ethic is really great for me – couple days a month, two hours a day.”

― H. Jon Benjamin

“I feel a social responsibility. We need to open people’s eyes. There is a lack of education in Ethiopia.”

― Haile Gebrselassie

“Terrorism, ladies and gentlemen, in my eyes I have a very, very, very simple explanation. Gangs of criminals, killers, used unfortunately by certain governments in the past for political purposes, who are on their own now as gangs.”

― Hamid Karzai

“On the lids, I stick to browns and golds. It doesn’t look like I’m wearing a lot on my eyes, but I don’t really know how to do a smoky eye, so I just try and keep it pretty easy.”

― Hannah Bronfman

“The way I see it, any attention I get, for whatever reason, just draws more eyes to the causes that I believe in.”

“Have I ever left the field with a broken nose, black eye? Yes, numerous times. I’ve had a broken nose and a few black eyes. It’s part and parcel of the game, really.”

― Harry Maguire

“There are two ways to go about it. You can take a compass and draw a perfect circle and make two perfect eyes as neat as can be. Or you can do it freehand and have some fun with it. Like I did. Give it character.”

― Harvey Ball

“When I decided to become a doctor, I was very, very young, when my mother, her seventh child, became pregnant, and she was feeling terrible pain, and I could not know how to help her. And my mother died in front of my eyes, without knowing why, which diagnosis. So I decided to be a doctor.”

― Hawa Abdi

“It seems like everything that we see perceived in the brain before we actually use our own eyes, that everything we see is coming through computers or machines and then is being input in our brain cells. So that really worries me.”

― Hayao Miyazaki

“People can tell when you’re happy with being you and when you’re not. It’s only cheesy because it’s true. As I’ve gotten older and grown into my body, I’ve started realizing that the way you carry yourself and that light coming out of your eyes are the most attractive things about you.”

― Hayden Panettiere

“My eyes and spirit have opened up since I found someone that I get to share my life with.”

“I can’t live without my dark plum eyeliner. I use liquid because it’s easier on my eyes.”

― Heather Morris

“The sacrifices of friendship were beautiful in her eyes as long as she was not asked to make them.”

― Hector Hugh Munro

“Your sweetheart calls you by another’s name. His eyes linger too long on your best friend. He talks with excitement about a girl at work. And the fire catches. Jealousy – that sickening combination of possessiveness, suspicion, rage, and humiliation – can overtake your mind and threaten your very core as you contemplate your rival.”

― Helen Fisher

“When the baby dies, On every side Rose stranger’s voices, hard and harsh and loud. The baby was not wrapped in any shroud. The mother made no sound. Her head was bowed That men’s eyes might not see Her misery.”

― Helen Hunt Jackson

“Above all, I craved to seize the whole essence, in the confines of one single photograph, of some situation that was in the process of unrolling itself before my eyes.”

― Henri Cartier-Bresson

“Living as we do with a veil over our eyes, we cannot remember what it was like to be with our Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, in the premortal world; nor can we see with our physical eyes or with reason alone the hand of God in our lives.”

― Henry B. Eyring

“To keep ourselves grounded in the Lord’s Church, we can and must train our eyes to recognize the power of the Lord in the service of those He has called. We must be worthy of the companionship of the Holy Ghost. And we need to pray for the Holy Ghost to help us know that men who lead us hold this power.”

― Henry B. Eyring

“A large amount of constant activity will get things going. For example, training in the morning will have everything, all the juices flowing by the time you actually get to work. So, when you’re at work, you’ve been already up for an hour or so or two hours, and you’re raring to go where everyone else is still wiping sleep out of their eyes.”

― Henry Cavill

“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?”

― Henry David Thoreau

“The light which puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star.”

― Henry David Thoreau

“Where there is an observatory and a telescope, we expect that any eyes will see new worlds at once.”

― Henry David Thoreau

“Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes shine to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait. The grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas.”

― Henry Ford

“Courage ought to have eyes as well as arms.”

― Henry George Bohn

“Travel opens eyes and perspectives.”

― Henry Golding

“My eyes don’t work, at least not fully, because they are blocked by disease. The scene around me appears through a kind of curtain, a haze.”

― Henry Grunwald

“In medicine as well as in romantic poetry, it is the heart that is the center and controlling mechanics of life. If the heart stops, life stops. The loss of sight doesn’t not mean death. Yet for ages, the eyes was believed to contain a human being’s vital essence – a not wholly irrational belief.”

― Henry Grunwald

“Eyes is the attempt to tell the story of the Civil Rights movement and to create an emotional, intellectual constituency. But what do you do after that? The black community doesn’t have institutions that pick up such moments and preserve them.”

― Henry Hampton

“We shall never be understood or respected by the English until we carry our individuality to extremes, and by asserting our independence, become of sufficient consequence in their eyes to merit a closer study than they have hitherto accorded us.”

― Henry Lawson

“99 percent of what you see is not what comes in through the eyes. It is what you infer about that room.”

― Henry Markram

“I’m a big fan of the American Tapes label. But that’s very hard to keep a grip on that because you blink your eyes and they’ve released three records, all of which are limited edition, all sold at one show. So you have to follow in drips and drops on eBay, which I do.”

― Henry Rollins

“More than 30 years ago, in Washington, D.C., I secured a copy of a single by a Los Angeles band called The Bags. The two-song 7-inch, released on Dangerhouse, had a girl on the cover who looked right at you with huge eyes. The songs, ‘Survive’ and ‘Babylonian Gorgon,’ were great and made many of my mix tapes.”

― Henry Rollins

“We are happy to get great technology from anywhere, and we have eyes and ears that are checking out companies all over.”

“Since childhood she had walked the Devon rivers with her father looking for flowers and the nests of birds, passing some rocks and trees as old friends, seeing a Spirit everywhere, gentle in thought to all her eyes beheld.”

― Henry Williamson

“Not every child learns the same way. I could not learn through my eyes. Reading was impossible. Math, to compute it in my mind, was impossible. I learned everything through listening.”

― Henry Winkler

“The eyes are more exact witnesses than the ears.”

― Heraclitus

“Eyes and ears are poor witnesses to people if they have uncultured souls.”

― Heraclitus

“I am proud to have been born in Iowa. Through the eyes of a ten-year-old boy, it was a place of adventure and daily discoveries – the wonder of the growing crops, the excitements of the harvest, the journeys to the woods for nuts and hunting, the joys of snowy winters, the comfort of the family fireside, of good food and tender care.”

― Herbert Hoover

“For the Russian masses, the proletarians, knew for certain, and already saw during the war, and in part before their very eyes, that the peasants would soon be on their side.”

― Heston Blumenthal

“If the British public were shown slavery in their own society seen through the eyes of the enslaved, they would get a much better understanding.”

― Hilary Beckles

“You can go into neighborhoods in the United States where people dress a certain way because they don’t want to be out of touch, where boys wear pants down to their knees, which nobody has compelled them to do but they pick up the cultural norms, or where girls are improperly dressed by my eyes, but that’s what they see in the media.”

― Hillary Clinton

“If you have a friend or family member with breast cancer, try not to look at her with ‘sad eyes.’ Treat her like you always did; just show a little extra love.”

― Hoda Kotb

“I’m not a big eye makeup girl unless there’s a professional doing it – otherwise I look like I have two black eyes!”

― Holland Roden

“I have a different kind of experience than other girls had. I’ve had to face a lot of different styles and adjust to them. I had to face a lot of bad situations and come back. I’ve had to fight with my eyes swollen shut and my nose broken and bloody.”

― Holly Holm

“I would love to meet my soul mate. I’m always kind of keeping my eyes open for somebody.”

― Holly Madison

“All my life, everything important that had ever happened had always happened somewhere else. But Sputnik was right there in front of my eyes in my backyard… I felt that if I stretched out enough, I could touch it.”

― Homer Hickam

“You can pick wild strawberries with your eyes closed, locating them by smell, for they are two parts perfume to one part taste. An hour of searching might yield a handful if you’re lucky. Wild strawberries can’t be encouraged, nor can they be discouraged: They come to you unbidden and unearned. They appear, or do not, by the grace of the sun.”

― Hope Jahren

“A Leica camera is a camera we can keep both eyes open. You can look for the free eye that doesn’t look to viewfinder and in all directions. It’s like backwards – and sometimes also backwards, and you can look for the viewfinder and see your picture.”

― Horst Faas

“I would rise, monk-like, at 6 A.M., speak to no one, make tea, and go immediately to my desk from which I didn’t move until frills appeared around the edges of my eyes or I heard the sound of a wine bottle being uncorked. It would give the wrong impression to describe these as Writing Days.”

― Howard Jacobson

“It’s a matter of people closing their eyes and opening their ears. If people are able to do that, then music is ageless.”

― Howie Dorough

“I found the experience of falling in love or being in love was a death: a death of everything. You kind of watch yourself die in a wonderful way, and you experience for the briefest moment – if you see yourself for a moment through their eyes – everything you believed about yourself gone. In a death-and-rebirth sense.”

― Hozier

“I’m not quite used to being seen through the eyes of fans yet. Being met with squeals and screams – I haven’t gotten used to that.”

― Hozier

“My hair grows into a fuzz ball – I just wanted it to grow downwards rather than outwards – but then I realized I couldn’t play guitar with it that way. I couldn’t do anything day-to-day without my hair getting in my mouth or my eyes or my food, so I just started tying it back, long before I knew what a man bun was.”

― Hozier

“I have played a mentally challenged person, a quadriplegic – but blind, I realised, is the most difficult because eyes are the most involuntary muscles in our body. Like, our pupils and their dilations are involuntary.”

― Hrithik Roshan

“’Notting Hill?’ Does that poke fun at being British? Maybe it does. In ‘Mickey Blue Eyes,’ that’s kind of the point: the clash of worlds, the unlikely combo of a respectable Englishman and a mob guy. If you take out the Britishness, you don’t really have much.”

― Hugh Grant

“The emphasis in ‘Notting Hill’ was perhaps, I thought, slightly more on the romance than on the comedy. But I think ‘Mickey Blue Eyes’ is maybe slightly more on the comedy. And the tone on ‘Mickey Blue Eyes,’ it’s a far sillier film.”

― Hugh Grant

“As an actor, you have many tools – your body, your voice, your emotions, mentally. In film, you have your eyes because they communicate your thought process. In fact, generally in film, what you don’t say is more important than what you say. That’s not so much the case for stage.”

― Hugh Jackman

“I feel when acting, I am sometimes overly self-conscious; I think, ‘Going, no, don’t, put your eyebrow back where it was and, you know, turn to the left.’ You know, I’m sort of very consciously adopting this character. But with music, I don’t know. I found it was a question of just closing my eyes and just sort of letting things come out.”

― Hugh Laurie

“The prime minister found something hopeful in the man’s eyes and manner. The 30 or so people who run this world analyze one another that way and then make decisions of life and death for us. Scary, but true.”

― Hugh Sidey

“He’s dreaming with his eyes open, and those that dream with their eyes open are dangerous, for they do not know when their dreams come to an end.”

― Hugo Pratt

“I feel less pressure to dress for the eyes of other people now. I think that happened once I started modelling, near the end of high school.”

― Hunter Schafer

“We were led to a pediatric ophthalmologist. It’s a hard date for me, April 14, 1998. The doctor came back from the examining room and told us she had tumors in both eyes.”

― Hunter Tylo

“The idea of taking a brand that already exists and making a really poor-looking version of it, with acrylic or puffy paint, is really aesthetically pleasing to my eyes and also funny.”

― Hunx

“In my case, I take part in performance-oriented music and believe it is my call to show the audience something that both their eyes and ears can enjoy.”

― Hyuna

“I wrote a lot of lyrics in prison, but they’d all be like, ‘Crawls upon the shoulders, hatred in the eyes.’ I wrote about 50 songs in there that were all about jail. I’ve come out and thought, ‘I’ve only served eight weeks; I can’t really write a concept album about jail.’”

― Ian Brown

“The most important thing in the face is the eyes, and if you can make the eyes talk, you’re halfway there.”

― Ian Holm

“It’s ‘Sharknado,’ people. No one’s expecting a tear-jerking, gut-wrenching emotional piece. This is just wild sci-fi action/adventure at it’s finest. It’s one of those dopey movies that come on in the middle of the night, and your eyes just stay open watching it ‘cuz your glued to it, ‘cuz you’re just compelled to continue to watch it.”

― Ian Ziering

“It’s definitely the development that has changed the way Montenegro is seen in the eyes of the world.”

― Igor Luksic

“I think a big part of my faith teachings is to work together towards equality: that we’re all created equal, and under the eyes of God, we all have a right to freedom and to access our rights equally.”

― Ilhan Omar

“I was frustrated in general with the way women are always portrayed. And it’s always through a man’s eyes.”

― Iliza Shlesinger

“I have no intention of ever writing beauty tips on how to make an African-American nose look slimmer or Asian eyes look bigger. That’s degrading. Asian eyes are what’s beautiful about you and what makes you different.”

― Iman

“I was told I was going undrafted. That’s what I was told by everybody. I guess I wasn’t good enough in everybody else’s eyes.”

― Iman Shumpert

“If the world is an objective reality that exists independently of us, then humans themselves, even in their own eyes, are nothing more than objects, and their life stories merely a series of disconnected historical accidents, which they may wonder at, but which they themselves have nothing to do with.”

― Imre Kertesz

“The individualists stare into each other’s eyes and yet deny each other’s existence. We walk in circles, so limited by our own anxieties that we can no longer distinguish between true and false, between the gangster’s whim and the purest ideal.”

― Ingmar Bergman

“Being asked to support humane meat means being asked to support the suffering of animals in transport, to approve of treatment that causes them palpable fear, their bodies shaking and their eyes wide as saucers, as they are slung by their legs into crates that are slammed onto the back of a truck.”

― Ingrid Newkirk

“I get my light eyes from my mother.”

― Irina Shayk

“I think people have to sharpen their eyes and look. I always feel like a big sponge: I feel like I learn lots of things by osmosis, and I feel that I’m always absorbing. I mean, when people say, ‘What is your inspiration?’ I could throw up. I mean, I’m inspired by the fact I get up in the morning. And I’m still here.”

― Iris Apfel

“Falling out of love is very enlightening. For a short while you see the world with new eyes.”

― Iris Murdoch

“I spend several years trying to get inside the brain and heart of my subjects, listening to the interior monologues in their letters, and when I have to bridge the chasms between the factual evidence, I try to make an intuitive leap through the eyes and motivation of the person I’m writing about.”

― Irving Stone

“I have been working with UNICEF Peru a lot. I am aiming to educate children, mostly because once adults reach adulthood, your views are shaped. With children, you can really teach them, you can open their eyes to what is really going on. The only way we can open their eyes and free them is by educating them.”

― Isabela Moner

“Mauna Kea from Hilo has a shapely aspect, for its top is broken into peaks, said to be the craters of extinct volcanoes, but my eyes seek the dome-like curve of Mauna Loa with far deeper interest, for it is as yet an unfinished mountain.”

― Isabella Bird

“The secret of using makeup for fashion is to have fun with it. When people see that you are playful, that’s attractive. Sometimes people apply makeup because they have bags under their eyes or because they don’t feel good, and that just reads ‘insecure.’”

― Isabella Rossellini

“When I close my eyes, I still see things no one should ever experience: a bright red light, the black cloud soon after, people running in every direction trying desperately to escape – I remember it all.”

― Issey Miyake

“When you are in the public eye, it is really counterproductive to think about how you’re viewed in the eyes of others. You just have to be who you are.”

― Ivanka Trump

“That’s the way blacks have been encouraged to think: that we got to stick together. You’ve got a situation today where if a black person says he thinks O.J. Simpson’s guilty, other blacks will cut their eyes at him and say, ‘You ought to go somewhere and sit down and shut up.’”

― J. C. Watts

“The thing about being an artist today is you get to develop right in front of people’s eyes before you even put out an album.”

― J. Cole

“People think because I’ve got some success, I’ve made it, but in my eyes it’s like, ‘How long has Jay Z been in the business? How many albums has he got?’ Not that I’m trying to be Jay Z, but I am trying to be around for a long time.”

― J. Cole

“The first book I bought was ‘Anne of Green Gables,’ an edition that is beautiful and complete – one I hope to read with my son someday, seeing it anew through his eyes.”

― J. D. Salinger

“To my child’s eyes, which had seen nothing else, Shanghai was a waking dream where everything I could imagine had already been taken to its extreme.”

― J. G. Ballard

“I think it’s terribly important to watch TV. I think there’s a sort of minimum number of hours of TV a day you ought to watch, and unless you watch three or four hours of TV a day, you’re just closing your eyes to some of the most important sort of stream of consciousness that’s going on!”

― J. G. Ballard

“Basically, I want that relationship where we have that love. I love her so much, and she loves me so much that it’s just – you want that relationship where you look into the girl’s eyes, and you know that she’s everything you’ve ever wanted. When I find that, I’m going to get it!”

― J. J. Watt

“When you’re in the National Football League, and you get this window where all eyes are on you, you can use that. You can use that platform for good.”

“Sometimes, when I’m sitting at my desk for long hours and nothing’s coming to me, I remember my fifth-grade teacher, the way her eyes lit up when she said, ‘This is really good.’”

― Jacqueline Woodson

“My favorite emoji is definitely the sad face, like the ‘See, I’m sorry’ sad face, which I use all the time… Or the monkey face, where he’s covering his eyes.”

― Jade Thirlwall

“I have a lot of eyes on me because of basketball, a lot of young people looking up to me. It’s made me grow up faster.”

“I was able to convince my body that I could take it and nobody could hurt me. I might’ve gotten cut, stitches over my eyes. Broken nose. Broken hands. But I never really got hurt.”

― Jake LaMotta

“My nose was broken six times, my hands six times, a few fractured ribs. Fifty stitches over my eyes. But the only place I got hurt was out of the ring.”

― Jake LaMotta

“I first saw ‘They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?’ when I was very young. Its transporting qualities were so strong that I felt like I had lived it. Only recently, with adult eyes, was I able to metabolize how tragic a tale it really is.”

“You really need to be on the edge and you have to keep your eyes open.”

“I believe 3D is inevitable because it’s about aligning our entertainment systems to our sensory system. We all have two eyes; we all see the world in 3D. And it’s natural for us to want our entertainment in 3D as well. It’s just getting the technology – it’s really more the business model than the technology piece. We’ve solved the technology.”

― James Cameron

“I’m self-taught, and fake eyelashes definitely took the longest to master. I glued my eyes shut at least 15 times.”

― James S. Coleman

“I am interested in relating the things we see with the things we see with our eyes closed.”

― James Turrell

“There is an idea, first of all, of vision fully formed with the eyes closed. Of course the vision we have in a lucid dream often has greater lucidity and clarity than vision with the eyes open.”

“It is only when light is reduced that the pupil opens and feeling goes out of the eyes like touch.”

― James Turrell

“Like Andy Warhol and unlike God Almighty, Larry King does not presume to judge; all celebrities are equal in his eyes, saints and sinners alike sharing the same ‘Love Boat’ voyage into the dark beyond, a former sitcom star as deserving of pious send-off as Princess Diana.”

― James Wolcott

“One reason I’m such a wayward prognosticator of rightwing trends is that I’m incapable of blacking out enough neural sectors to see the world through reptilian-brained eyes, a prerequisite for any true channeling of the mean resentments and implanted fears that drive hardcore conservatives.”

― James Wolcott

“I saw it with my own eyes: Israelis and Palestinians, arm in arm, walking off together and clearly pricing how you could get your truck to the top of the line or get it through at all. It was an absolutely transparently corrupt system at the border – you had to buy your truck’s way across. I thought it was a disgrace.”

― Jamie Chung

“You’re only famous in the eyes of others. Inside, you’re still the same, and not a hundred million records or TV shows can change that. I think the only pitfall of fame is believing that it means something, and behaving like that.”

― Jamie Cullum

“With a creature, there’s no voice, so the eyes become the voice. When you get eye-to-eye contact, a real connection, it’s limitless – and incredibly thrilling.”

“I had ordered long legs, but they never arrived. My eyes are weird too, one is gray and the other is green. I have a crooked smile and my nose looks like a ski slope. No, I would not win a Miss contest.”

― Jane Seymour

“The raccoons, foxes, beavers, chinchillas, minks, rabbits, and yes, sometimes even dogs and cats that are killed for fur are not very different from your beloved dog or cat. They all have eyes, ears and hearts. They all experience pain when they are physically maimed. They shake with fear when they experience terror.”

― Jane Velez-Mitchell

“Does not a man physically tremble under the mere look of a wild beast or fellow-man that is stronger than himself? Does not a woman redden all over when she feels her lover’s eyes on her? How then should one doubt the mysterious power of one individual over another?”

― Jane Welsh Carlyle

“In complete darkness we are all the same, it is only our knowledge and wisdom that separates us, don’t let your eyes deceive you.”

― Janet Varney

“One of the things I’ve learned in playing a character like Becca from ‘You’re the Worst’ is that there really is such a joy and freedom in behaving badly and in being a character that you do roll your eyes at. She’s just so delicious to loathe.”

― Janet Varney

“A lot of the stuff that I do with Betty is in the eyes. A lot of the feelings that I evoke with her are unspoken, so that’s been fun to play with.”

― Jason Aldean

“When you spend time with potential customers, you get to hear about their struggles firsthand. You see their eyes light up with excitement or darken with confusion. You learn things you would never find in a survey, database, or questionnaire. You learn why people buy.”

― Jason Fried

“That’s the great irony of allowing passionate people to work from home. A manager’s natural instinct is to worry that her workers aren’t getting enough work done. But the real threat is that they will wind up working too hard. And because the manager isn’t sitting across from her worker anymore, she can’t look in the person’s eyes and see burnout.”

― Jason Fried

“When I finished performing ‘I Won’t Give Up’ for the first time, I opened my eyes, and I think there was maybe six people in there when I started, and when I finished there was about 30 people, all standing around with their jaws dropped in complete silence. I said, ‘Okay, I think this song has some power to it.’ So coffee shops work for me.”

― Jason Mraz

“Batman is like the audience’s eyes and ears in ‘Justice League Dark.’”

― Jason O’Mara

“I think one of the reasons that we like conspiracy theories is I think that we like to feel like there is a group of people who are so smart and powerful that they can pull the wool over an entire country or in fact even an entire world’s eyes. That certainly makes us feel like somehow we’re protected, even if it’s not in our best interest.”

― Jason Ritter

“Thinking so hard on her soft eyes and memories of the signs that it’s over. It’s over.”

― Jeff Jarrett

“Letting a project sit and coming back to it is just as important as working on it all the time. You need to come back to it with fresh eyes.”

― Jeff Lemire

“I have always been drawn to young characters and seeing big tapestries through the eyes of a child. It probably comes from being a father myself and having a young son and seeing the world through his eyes. I write stories that are sort of the exaggerated version of that.”

― Jeff Lemire

“There’s a reason why I use film. It’s because it’s the best representation of how our eyes work. I really believe that. I think it’s better than digital.”

― Jeffrey Dean Morgan

“In theater, the primary tool for me was voice. On-screen, it’s the eyes.”

“Too often a story is examined through biased eyes, without a sensitivity for everyone who forged it. It’s seen from the point of view of the great white savior, and rarely is the perspective of the slave a part.”

― Jeffrey Wright

“Have you ever tried to talk to a baby or a toddler? They never look you square in the eyes, they know about three words, and God forbid they ever ask you how you’re doing. It’s all about them!”

― Jen Kirkman

“But I always need to identify with a character to write about him or her – and by ‘identify,’ I mean see the world through that person’s eyes and have a strong sense of the inner logic of their acts and decisions, wacky or wrongheaded though they might be. In that sense, I think there’s some of me in all of them.”

― Jennifer Hudson

“I fall asleep feeling beautiful. Then, in the morning, before I leave the house, I say five things I love about myself, like ‘You have really pretty eyes.’ That way I can go out into the world with that little bit of extra confidence. It’s a feel-good protein shake in my back pocket in case someone messes with me that day.”

― Jennifer Love Hewitt

― Jenny Han

“The year my mom worked as a secretary at an apparel company in midtown, she would often come home in tears because she had mistakenly called her boss by another coworker’s name. ‘You know how it is,’ my father said, ‘they all look the same. It’s not your mom’s fault. There’s just no telling them apart. Same high nose and deep-set eyes.’”

― Jenny Zhang

“Where folks like Google have fallen down is in just putting a little review box up, then closing their eyes and letting the algorithm take care of itself. Yelp is a technology company, but also a company that understands how people want to connect with one another.”

― Jeremy Stoppelman

“I believe in monstrosities, and ‘I Am Abraham’ is a monstrosity of sorts, raveling out moment by moment with its contrapuntal songs, as if a band of musicians were at play, all of them with Lincoln’s beard and disturbing grey eyes.”

“I looked up at my mom, and I was like, ‘Well, Mom, uh, when you really think about it, C’s aren’t really that bad. C’s are average.’ And I’ve never seen my mom so upset, to this day. I just saw this flash of fire in her eyes, and she yelled, ‘Average? You are never allowed to be average, because you look like me.’”

― Jessica Williams

“When I got my headshots done, there was this woman screaming at me to blow my lips out. She kept saying, ‘You want to be like Scarlett Johansson, don’t you?’ In the shot, my eyes are popping out; I look terrified. I realised I’d rather not get a job than go through pain to be something I’m not.”

― Jessie Cave

“If you don’t want to put on any makeup, try some fake eyelashes. They make your eyes pop and give you a little confidence boost.”

― Jessie James Decker

“I remember being in the States a few years ago, and when I said I was from Toronto, it doesn’t really make a difference. Now you say you’re from Toronto, and people want to talk to you a little longer. Drake’s putting on and bringing a lot of eyes to the city, but I feel like the seed and the flowers have always been here.”

― Jessie Reyez

― Jillian Hervey

“Mascara, in general, is just so good if you don’t have anything else. It just makes eyes pop.”

― Jillian Hervey

― Jimmie Johnson

“There’s something about the energy and the expectations that an audience projects at you. I get up on stage and work and work, and there’s chaos all around me, then I’ll shut my eyes, and boom! I slot into the zone. It’s like the eye of the hurricane. Everything is easy, and I’m capable of doing things I didn’t know I was.”

― Jimmy Barnes

“I separated from the Southern Baptists when they adopted the discriminatory attitude towards women, because I believe what Paul taught in Galatians that there is no distinction in God’s eyes between men and women, slaves and masters, Jews and non-Jews – everybody is created equally in the eyes of God.”

― Joan D. Vinge

“I remember times when I was at shows and the person onstage locked eyes with me. And in that moment, everything was right with the world. I think that’s part of my job, to create these thousands of moments every night. And for the rest of their life, they can say, ‘You guys looked at me,’ or ‘You sweated on me,’ or ‘I got your gum.’”

― Joan Jett

“My eyes opened, and the first thing I thought of when I could put thoughts together was I want to be in show business. Never wanted anything else. I used to sneak in the costume room at my nursery school and smell the costumes.”

“I have green eyes, which are actually quite difficult to find makeup for.”

― Joanna Coles

“I’m extremely proud of being Latin; it’s a big part of my life. It’s not something I outwardly promote, just like I don’t outwardly promote that I have green eyes and blonde hair. It’s a part of who I am. I love the richness of the culture I grew up within.”

“YouTube viewers essentially curate their own content, so you could form your playlist to watch ‘H+’ through the eyes of one character, in chronological order, in reverse-chronological order, by geographic location. Our hope is that audiences take ‘H+’ into their own hands.”

― John Cabrera

“Focused, hard work is the real key to success. Keep your eyes on the goal, and just keep taking the next step towards completing it. If you aren’t sure which way to do something, do it both ways and see which works better.”

― John Carmack

“I think I probably have the philosophy of a poor man. You know, like maybe I’d steal the pennies off a dead man’s eyes.”

― John Cassavetes

“I think the way WWE Studios is going now – they’re going away from action, doing more drama, more comedy – it will open a lot of people’s eyes. Because a lot of people see big guy, big frame: action superstar. We’ve proven, especially with ‘Legendary,’ that that is not always the case.”

― John Cena

“A role like I had on ‘Parks and Rec,’ to me, is very easy to understand, and that’s something that I can do with my eyes closed.”

― John Cena

“I have a few go-to moves like jazz hands, shake the booty, stupid eyes. It was once a mating ritual, but now it’s all about looking silly and making the kids smile.”

― John Cleveland

“Anybody who knows me… when I’m tired, I sleep with my eyes open.”

“In reality, everyone is good in bed. Close eyes. Shutdown brain. Pause as necessary. Restart brain. Open eyes. What’s there to not be good at? Bed is the one place where laziness is rewarded.”

― John Dobbin

“He must pull out his own eyes, and see no creature, before he can say, he sees no God; He must be no man, and quench his reasonable soul, before he can say to himself, there is no God.”

― John Donne

“I will talk about Baker Mayfield. I like everything about his makeup. I like how his teammates really rally behind him. I like his eyes downfield. I like his accuracy with his deep throws. I like how he shows that fighter’s spirit; when it comes time to come back, he’s fighting through to come back, and I applaud those things.”

― John Dorsey

“Display advertising and the movies, though they may dull the wits, certainly stimulate the eyes.”

― John Dos Passos

“A great artist transforms our world, removes scales from our eyes, plugs from our ears, gloves from our fingertips, teaches us to perceive reality differently.”

― John Edgar Wideman

“It’s not normal that, when you close your eyes and listen to the news, too often the political back-and-forth in America sounds too much like it does in the kinds of countries that the State Department warns Americans not to travel to.”

― John F. Kerry

“Love’s tongue is in his eyes.”

― John Fletcher

“Anybody can direct a picture once they know the fundamentals. Directing is not a mystery, it’s not an art. The main thing about directing is: photograph the people’s eyes.”

― John Ford

“One’s eyes are what one is, one’s mouth is what one becomes.”

― John Galsworthy

“If I’m honest, I suppose there’s something I don’t want people to see in my eyes. They really are the window to the soul.”

― John Grant

“What we’re dealt with hopefully is two arms, two eyes, two legs, a head, a heart. The variations, the extensions, the possibilities of the human body, what that can do.”

― John Guare

“Is God a man with two arms and legs like me? Does He have eyes, a head? Does He have bowels? Well I do, and that makes me more wonderful than He is!”

― John Harvey Kellogg

“Why watch someone kissing when people really close their eyes when they kiss?”

― John Hughes

“I’ve learned how to sleep on airplanes. When I’m taking a trans-Atlantic flight or going to a different continent, I will always read because reading puts me to sleep. When you watch a movie, you have all that light coming to your eyes, but with reading, I can’t get through 15 or 20 pages.”

― John Isner

“Surrounded by all the members of my dear family, enjoying the affection of numerous friends, who have never abandoned me, and possessing a sufficient share of all that contributes to make life agreeable, I lift my grateful eyes towards the Supreme Being and feel that I am happy.”

― John James Audubon

“I think that as I had children, I have five sons, and they got into video games and were the prime ages through the development of video games. It was so much fun seeing them play the games and seeing it through their eyes.”

― John Lasseter

“Comics, in a sense, the style, the images – it’s almost like music. They say music is a universal language, but when the eyes behold something, a figure, somebody moving; it’s real, and it cannot be denied.”

― John Lewis

“To prejudge other men’s notions before we have looked into them is not to show their darkness but to put out our own eyes.”

― John Locke

“If you’re an actor, you get your eyes put out; you get everything done to you.”

― John Mortimer

“I cannot, will never, understand these couples who hate each other, who conduct open warfare in front of their children – the kind of people who have to drop the kids off at the end of the driveway in case they lay eyes on one another. At the very least, civility must reign.”

― John Niven

“Why pour shampoo into a rabbit’s eyes to see how much shampoo you can put in an adult’s eyes before they go blind? I’ll put them in my hair, in my eyes before I would give them to anyone else.”

― John Paul DeJoria

“When I see somebody being mistreated, my eyes tear up and I want to stop it. And I believe that the best thing I can do is to write about it, because if I insert myself into the equation it doesn’t really do much good, but if I write about it I think it could do more good.”

― John Pomfret

“In my songs, I try to look through someone else’s eyes, and I want to give the audience a feeling more than a message.”

― John Prine

“While some of the tales of woe emanating from the court are enough to bring tears to the eyes, it is true that only Supreme Court justices and schoolchildren are expected to and do take the entire summer off.”

― John Roberts

“I don’t think we’re at the point where most people are willing to get rid of body parts and replace them, but then again, people who shoot lasers in their eyes come out with better-than-perfect vision.”

― John Scalzi

“By the time I’m 75 and I have a new hip, and my eyes are laser cleaned of cataracts, I wont think I’m a bionic man. I think that’s just how technology works. The posthuman future of humanity will not announce itself; it will just creep up on us.”

― John Scalzi

“When the object that is produced, the photographic image has the ability to make tears come to your eyes; to inspire you to the point where you have to catch your breath, then nothing else matters.”

― John Sexton

“’Impressionism’ was the name given to a certain form of observation when Monet, not content with using his eyes to see what things were or what they looked like as everybody had done before him, turned his attention to noting what took place on his own retina (as an oculist would test his own vision).”

― John Singer Sargent

“Viewers can hate a character and at the same time can’t take their eyes off of him.”

“I’ve seen a look in dogs’ eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.”

― John Steinbeck

“When it came to choice of subjects, science was obvious – since I was uninterested in anything else – but a decision that caused consternation in some eyes was my demand to take biology for A-level.”

― John Sulston

“Watch the mouth, it reveals what the eyes try to hide.”

― John Thaw

“Some golfers, we are told, enjoy the landscape; but properly, the landscape shrivels and compresses into the grim, surrealistically vivid patch of grass directly under the golfer’s eyes as he morosely walks toward where he thinks his ball might be.”

― John Updike

“My golf is so delicate, so tenuously wired together with silent inward prayers, exhortations and unstable visualizations, that the sheer pressure of an additional pair of eyes crumbles the whole rickety structure into rubble.”

― John Updike

“The eyes of all people are upon us.”

― John Winthrop

“Material possessions, winning scores, and great reputations are meaningless in the eyes of the Lord, because He knows what we really are and that is all that matters.”

― John Wooden

“My journalistic heroes are all the guys like Peter Arnett of Vietnam, and my style in journalism is you got to stand there, and you got to see it with your own eyes.”

― Johnny Colt

“The beauty, the poetry of the fear in their eyes. I didn’t mind going to jail for, what, five, six hours? It was absolutely worth it.”

― Johnny Depp

“What I love to do is paint people’s faces, y’know, their eyes. Because you want to find that emotion, see what’s going on behind their eyes.”

― Johnny Depp

― Johnny Mercer

“I’m always going to keep my eyes open.”

― Johnny Van Zant

“Love myself I do. Not everything, but I love the good as well as the bad. I love my crazy lifestyle, and I love my hard discipline. I love my freedom of speech and the way my eyes get dark when I’m tired. I love that I have learned to trust people with my heart, even if it will get broken. I am proud of everything that I am and will become.”

― Johnny Weir

“It’s of very little importance to me that I was born gay. It doesn’t make me a better athlete, it doesn’t make me a stronger person, it doesn’t really do anything to enhance my life. It’s just something I was born with, the same as green eyes.”

― Johnny Weir

“I have read books that are so cliched and lazy, my eyes have bled. But I also have read books marketed under the chick-lit umbrella that are so honest, clever and gritty that I’ve wanted to give up writing and paint walls instead.”

― Jojo Moyes

“’Donnie Darko’ was my first audition ever! It opened my eyes to the possibilities within camera work.”

― Jolene Purdy

“I grew up on Dilla, Timbaland, Pharrell, all these drums that are super pocketed, so all those influences come out on a song like ‘Ungrateful Eyes,’ with all the crazy drum swing.”

― Jon Bellion

“Online theft has changed the business model of filmmaking because the DVD market is very soft. So, more ambitious, compelling, character-driven narrative of a certain budget level isn’t really a viable business model in the eyes of the studios right now.”

― Jon Favreau

“I don’t think it’s fair to pinpoint Asia in terms of piracy. It’s a worldwide problem. With ‘The Expendables 3,’ piracy extended everywhere, and over 10 percent of it was in the United States. So I don’t want to put my hands over my eyes. It’s a shame there is no DVD business in a lot of Asia, certainly China and India.”

― Jon Feltheimer

“I love movin’. I was observant growing up, watching Michael Jackson and John Travolta. I’d close my eyes, see the moves.”

― Jon Heder

“I just keep my eyes open and focus on the things I’m not good at and what makes other people better than me – technique and things outside the Octagon.”

― Jon Jones

“The whole point of a bar is, I look in your eyes, you look in my eyes, we’ve never met each other before, we talk, we get to know each other, have a drink together, and the great end of that story is we get married someday.”

― Jon Taffer

“People tell you who they are. There are big neon signs going off. ‘Pay attention! This is who I am.’ And most of us put out hands a little bit over our eyes. We don’t see that.”

― Jonathan Banks

“Prison opened my eyes to so many things. It was a great time. I met interesting people. I got to understand the behaviour of the police and the media. I am an observer of the human race.”

― Jonathan King

“Portland is a place where everyone closes their eyes and crosses their fingers and hopes for a better community. They keep it small and local, and usually they think if they just make great coffee, it’s the best thing for the neighborhood.”

― Jonathan Krisel

“A mourning dove’s beauty is an understated one: the colors of its feathers ranging through various shades of gray and drab violet, often with a striking splash of turquoise around the eyes.”

― Jonathan Miles

“I’ve taught the better class of tourist both to see and not to see; to lift their eyes above and beyond the inessentials, and thrill to our western Nature in her majesty.”

― Jonathan Raban

“I usually write away from home, in coffee shops, on trains, on planes, in friends’ houses. I like places where there’s stuff going on that you can lift your eyes, see something interesting, overhear a conversation.”

― Jonathan Safran Foer

“I think the eyes are very revealing and can expose a lot about a persons mood or character.”

― Jonathan Shapiro

“Every time we go to sleep, it’s a rehearsal of the day when our eyes will ultimately close and we wake up on the side of eternity.”

― Joni Eareckson Tada

“You could write a song about some kind of emotional problem you are having, but it would not be a good song, in my eyes, until it went through a period of sensitivity to a moment of clarity. Without that moment of clarity to contribute to the song, it’s just complaining.”

― Joni Mitchell

“I can close my eyes and start walking through ‘Hamilton’ at any given time, and I’ll tear up because I remember day in and day out, eight shows a week, walking on stage, seeing everybody that I love.”

― Jordan Fisher

“’Thelma and Louise’ was a pretty important film for me and still is. It’s a social film about many things – gender, freedom – and it puts someone like me into the place of these protagonists. Watching that movie, you are living through the eyes of these women.”

― Jordan Peele

“Accept the terrible responsibility of life with eyes wide open.”

― Jordan Peterson

“Look at the putt from behind the hole. Everyday players almost never do this. They should! Your eyes will take in more information about the slope. Sometimes you’ll find that your initial read was incorrect.”

― Jordan Spieth

“I know what I want to look like. I don’t want to look trashy. I want mothers to be able to look at me and not have to close their kids’ eyes!”

― Jordin Sparks

“That’s always a cool thing to be the voice of what the eyes are seeing. It gives you the role of the Greek chorus and that’s always fun to do.”

― Jorge Garcia

“When you are listening to music it is better to cover your eyes than your ears.”

― Jose Bergamin

“My motive, and I will make it clear and look you in the eyes, is to attack major league baseball. That’s my motive.”

― Josef Albers

“Pondering, which means to weigh mentally, to deliberate, to meditate, can achieve the opening of the spiritual eyes of one’s understanding.”

― Joseph B. Wirthlin

“As an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, I testify to you this day that the time will come when every one of us will look into the Savior’s loving eyes.”

― Joseph B. Wirthlin

“Man is so muddled, so dependent on the things immediately before his eyes, that every day even the most submissive believer can be seen to risk the torments of the afterlife for the smallest pleasure.”

― Joseph de Maistre

“What I love about my work is that I’m forced to look through my character’s eyes.”

― Joseph Fiennes

“Today the eyes of orthodox Jews of earth are fixed upon Palestine.”

― Joseph Franklin Rutherford

“A reputation once broken may possibly be repaired, but the world will always keep their eyes on the spot where the crack was.”

― Joseph Hall

“Whatever my trouble had been at first, it developed into separation of the retina in both eyes. From the day on which I first consulted the oculist up to the present time, about twenty-four years, I have only been three times in ‘The World’ building. Most people think I’m dead or living in Europe in complete retirement.”

― Joseph Pulitzer

“There is no such thing as immaterial matter. All spirit is matter, but is more fine or pure, and can only be discerned by purer eyes. We cannot see it, but when our bodies are purified, we shall see that it is all matter.”

― Joseph Smith, Jr.

“Americans, the eyes of the world are upon you. How can you expect the world to believe in you and respect your preaching of democracy when you yourself treat your colored brothers as you do?”

― Josephine Baker

“Friends, to me for years St. Louis represented a city of fear… humiliation… misery and terror… A city where in the eyes of the white man a Negro should know his place and had better stay in it.”

― Josephine Baker

“I love experiencing other people’s realities, seeing the world through their eyes for a short period of time.”

― Josh Lucas

“I would play my Dungeons and Dragons songs and watch people’s eyes glaze over, and then I would start joking around between songs, and all of a sudden people were lighting up and engaging.”

― Josh Tillman

“So many times, I’ve seen conductors that, every time they have a thought, they stop the orchestra and say it, and I can see the orchestra rolling their eyes and saying, ‘Oh, God, he stopped again.’ So there’s a technique to rehearsing.”

― Joshua Bell

“Uma Thurman is one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen. She has those wicked eyes – it looks like there is such a brain behind those eyes.”

― Joshua Jackson

“I think we are fascinated and scared by evil at the same time. I think it’s important not to suppress our fascination but to walk into it with open eyes.”

― Joshua Oppenheimer

“I think there are always people that you meet in your life that scare you a little, but not because of the terror in their eyes so much as their unpredictability.”

― Joshua Sasse

“We seek true individuality and the true individuals. But we find them not. For lo, we mortals see what our poor eyes can see; and they, the true individuals, – they belong not to this world of our merely human sense and thought.”

― Josiah Royce

“I was in my late thirties when my eyes were opened to truth in God’s Word that showed me I wasn’t living the abundant life Jesus died for me to have. I had a very negative mindset and was miserable most of the time because of the abuse I had experienced throughout my childhood.”

― Joyce Meyer

“You heard it from the heart, you saw it in their eyes. Then I got used to the fact that I couldn’t feel my fingers and my feet. That for me was the essence of the battle.”

― Jude Law

“I can’t read scripts any more because of the trouble with my eyes.”

― Judi Dench

“Many of my books are set in New Jersey because that’s where I was born and raised. I lived there until my kids finished elementary school. Then we moved to New Mexico, the setting for ‘Tiger Eyes.’”

― Judy Blume

“Allegations become facts, and facts become truth in the eyes of the public, whether they are true or not.”

― Judy Smith

“I see through my eyes; the camera is just a machine to record it for me.”

― Juergen Teller

“We were alone. Where, I could not say, hardly imagine. All was black, and such a dense black that, after some minutes, my eyes had not been able to discern even the faintest glimmer.”

― Jules Verne

“It was a fantastic learning experience and OK, I got slammed because I wasn’t Audrey Hepburn but you could have predicted that, really, if you’d opened your eyes wide enough.”

― Julia Ormond

“That made me feel very disturbed, because it never seemed to be about how much hard work was involved. Ever. It was about… ‘hazel eyes’. It does help if you can brush that stuff off.”

― Julia Ormond

“For my eyes, I think an eyelash curler makes me look much more awake, even when I haven’t gotten much sleep. It’s a really important tool for a mom to have. The MAC one works for me.”

― Julia Restoin Roitfeld

“Perhaps the biggest myth about cynicism is that it deepens with age. I think what really happens is that experience painfully rips away layers of scales from our eyes, and so we do indeed become more cynical about many of the things we naively accepted when younger.”

― Julian Baggini

“I see myself out of my own eyes, which means I have no idea what’s going on the other way around. I just think I try to be a good person – and I fail.”

― Julian Casablancas

“We experience every space in five senses, so it’s strange that architects design just for the eyes.”

― Julian Treasure

“It’s time architects start designing for our ears as well as our eyes.”

― Julian Treasure

“I don’t understand executives that pit women against each other, the fact that they brought in ‘Body of Proof,’ Dana Delaney is a friend of mine, and the two of us were just rolling our eyes, it’s like, of course, you finally have two great female leads and you’re going to put us on against each other.”

― Julianna Margulies

“Rachel Cusk’s books are like pop-up volumes for grown-ups, the prose springing out of the page to bop you neatly between the eyes with its insights.”

― Julie Burchill

“I want people to understand that there are Asians born with the crease I had surgically done to my eyes, so the goal was never to look less Asian.”

― Julie Chen

“Babies, babies, babies! They’re everywhere, aren’t they? In our eyes, in our thoughts, in our arms, in our dreams. Sometimes, in our dreams, they are riding alpacas or juggling tacos – but that doesn’t mean those dreams are necessarily about babies. Look, I’m not Freud.”

― Julie Klausner

“I have never been one for musicians. I know girls are supposed to go crazy for frontmen who close their eyes when they sing and nod their heads when the drums kick in, but I’m like Shania Twain with that stuff: That don’t impress me much. I’ll take wit and brains over the ability to carry a tune any day.”

― Julie Klausner

“Every night, I will write until I’m done. Until my eyes are burning and tearing, and I can’t see the computer screen anymore, till I finish the script, till I get to the point where I’m happy stopping, till I get everything off my plate, because I hate going to bed with a full plate. It makes me very neurotic.”

― Julie Plec

“Everything can be killed except nostalgia for the kingdom, we carry it in the color of our eyes, in every love affair, in everything that deeply torments and unties and tricks.”

― Julio Cortazar

“I keep both eyes on my man. The basket hasn’t moved on me yet.”

― Julius Erving

“Shinji Kagawa is one of the best players in the world, and he now plays 20 minutes at Manchester United – on the left wing! My heart breaks. Really, I have tears in my eyes. Central midfield is Shinji’s best role.”

― Jurgen Klopp

“There’s something different about looking someone in the eyes and doing something dishonest to doing it over the phone or screen.”

― Justin Welby

“When I was in my teens and 20s, I looked to older Italian and French women. They always seemed so incredibly attractive to me because of their confidence. And because their faces had evidence of age: lines, dark circles, and half-lidded eyes, it made that confidence so rebellious. And that was incredibly attractive to me.”

― Justine Bateman

“Starting in my 20s, I couldn’t wait to look like Anna Magnani or Isabelle Huppert, all these great European actresses – Charlotte Rampling – the cheekbones and the heavy lidded eyes and the dark circles under the eyes, you know. So around 42/44, I started getting a little character on my face, and I was so glad.”

― Justine Bateman

“For women’s tears are but the sweat of eyes.”

― Juvenal

“I like visualizing a lot, so the night before a competition and right before, I will visualize myself. I’ll close my eyes, turn away from everybody, and just see myself doing exactly what I want to accomplish.”

― Kacy Catanzaro

“I was really shy and kept to the theater department. I was keeping my eyes down when I walked through the halls. So, no nemesis. Not in high school, anyway.”

― Kaitlin Olson

“If I like something, I will pick it up from anywhere and wear it. I don’t believe that only branded stuff looks good on you. If it doesn’t look good in my eyes, I’ll never wear it.”

― Kajol

“I love being American, and I love family. I love having a family, and I feel so blessed, and I feel like God gave me exactly what I wanted, so now I have to do the right thing in God’s eyes also. Just follow what God wants me to do.”

― Kanye West

“I don’t have feeling in my feet to my fingertips; I also have active lesions in my bone marrow and in my eyes.”

― Karen Duffy

“For what we want to accomplish in the future, we have to be able to view everything from the eyes of the customer.”

― Karen Katz

“The biggest battles in human history can only ever be seen through the eyes of the bloke on the front line, and that’s by definition a very focused view and one that will vary from individual to individual.”

― Karen Traviss

“A novel can do something that films and TV usually can’t – a glimpse inside the characters’ heads. I write very tight third person point of view, so the reader is right behind the eyes of each character, seeing what they see and feeling what they feel.”

― Karen Traviss

“Gerard Houllier is a great coach. He made me grow. He gave me chances in big games, which raised my confidence. It opened my eyes to what I could do. It was through him that I managed to trust myself.”

― Karim Benzema

“I always worked mostly in Quebec. I never thought of the States, somehow. I don’t know – I don’t have blue eyes or blond hair. I thought I didn’t fit with the stereotype of America.”

― Karine Vanasse

“People can drink with their eyes; I can eat with my nose.”

― Karl Lagerfeld

“Laughter and grief join hands. Always the heart Clumps in the breast with heavy stride; The face grows lined and wrinkled like a chart, The eyes bloodshot with tears and tide. Let the wind blow, for many a man shall die.”

― Karl Shapiro

“It is true that the eyes dominate the ears in our time.”

― Karlheinz Stockhausen

“I get really puffy eyes, so I’m all about a good puffy-eye mask.”

― Karrueche Tran

“I’m married to a white man, and then my daughter came out looking like the whitest white child with blonde hair and blue eyes. And I’m like, ‘Omigosh, now what am I going to do?’ She has my mom’s features and is lighter than my husband. And my boy is browner than I am. Brown eyes and really tan.”

― Karyn Parsons

“Sometimes what I think what the news is missing is the human element, the connection – the moment that you look into a little girl’s eyes or a father who has just left his family and risked everything just to try and survive.”

― Kat Graham

“I love sparkly eyes for the holidays, especially New Year’s Eve.”

― Kat Graham

“Sometimes, violent details have been eliminated from fairy tales simply because they were deemed too graphic. So one does not, at the end of Disney’s version of ‘Cinderella,’ see the stepsisters’ eyes get pecked and pecked by doves, because Disney wanted to market the story for wholesome family viewing.”

― Kate Bernheimer

“I’ve written books as acts of discovery: things I need to know and that I need to touch. And it’s very dangerous work to deal with the most toxic internal elements… I feel like Madame Curie at my computer. I feel like I should be hemorrhaging from my eyes and ears.”

― Kate Braverman

“She felt like a chess player who, by the clever handling of his pieces, sees the game taking the course intended. Her eyes were bright and tender with a smile as they glanced up into his; and her lips looked hungry for the kiss which they invited.”

― Kate Chopin

“Even after he was gone, I still loved my father. I looked Norwegian, like him, with a long face, strong jaw, thin mouth, and flashing eyes. And, like him, I was verbal, easygoing, and low-key on the surface, and, deep down, proud, socially paranoid, full of self-loathing, and prone to rage at injustice.”

― Kate Christensen

“If you want to be a writer, write a little bit every day. Pay attention to the world around you. Stories are hiding, waiting everywhere. You just have to open your eyes and your heart.”

― Kate DiCamillo

“I talked to ex-wives of musicians of the ’70s for research. They’re the funniest people in the world, yet there is this sad, beautiful thing in their eyes that says they’ve seen more than they could ever possibly tell you.”

― Kate Hudson

“I use more makeup now then I did before. I didn’t use to wear really that much, and I didn’t know how to do makeup, but now I know how to do it a bit more. I can do eyes and makeup in general more. I do like my own lipstick as well.”

― Kate Moss

“I can do a good roast with my eyes closed. I’m amazing with gravy. That’s my speciality; even other people ask me to do gravy at their house. I’m very proud of my gravy.”

― Kate Moss

“Look at life with the eyes of a child.”

― Kathe Kollwitz

“Without my husband’s costumes I wouldn’t have known how to accomplish what I saw in my own mind’s eyes for choreography. And then seeing our choreography and knowing the background of it I am sure helped my husband a great deal with what he designed for us.”

― Katherine Dunham

“I’ve gotten used to using individual lashes as well. A lot of girls will use strip eyelashes, but the glue comes out of each side and it gets messy. Individual lashes make your eyes look bigger and much more natural.”

― Katherine Webb

“We knew that for E.T. to feel real, you had to have some connection to his eyes.”

― Kathleen Kennedy

“I feel like there is something about having a copacetic world POV that helps in making a comedy. Like, David Wain has such a particular way of looking at the world. It helps when everyone can see behind his eyes, you know?”

― Kathryn Hahn

“I like vampires, tuberculosis, anything to do with blood. Then I read a biography of Rasputin and found out he’d had this daughter who had become a famous lion tamer and been billed as the daughter of the mad monk who was able to hypnotize animals with her eyes. It gave me a vision.”

― Kathryn Harrison

“So all of these things are going on that make you wake up and realize you are a mortal person. You can choose to cruise through your life, but if you do, you’re going to open your eyes at some point, and it’s gone.”

― Kathy Mattea

“For me, the thought of spaghetti and meatballs conjures up the image of that scene where ‘Lady and the Tramp’ gaze into each other’s eyes as they slurp a strand of pasta into a fateful kiss.”

― Katie Lee

“I want to be part of making sure that decent, honorable, humble, hardworking people in Pennsylvania can look their kids in the eyes. And when they put in their 40 hours, they can say to their kids, ‘I got you.’”

― Katie McGinty

“I’ve had Botox and all that – why not? There’s no cream that gets rid of wrinkles; that’s a load of rubbish in my eyes. But Botox does.”

“When you’re walking at the airport, you’re expected to smile at people because they know you… I find that tough. I’m only trying to protect myself. So I don’t take my eyes off the floor. People can take that as attitude. But it’s actually shyness. Yes, it is a bad habit. But it’s a defense mechanism.”

― Katrina Kaif

“You have to keep your eyes wide open and your head high and realize that you are going to be OK. I do this with work and with being a mom – I’m a true believer that it’s OK to fail, and that there is power in getting back up on the horse.”

― Keira Knightley

― Keke Palmer

“I have a lot of older brothers who messed up in different ways in my mother’s eyes. So I learned from all of their mistakes. I can’t go into detail, but while I was growing up, I always tried to make it a goal to relieve some of the stress my mother went through.”

― Kellan Lutz

“When you are on tour in the UK it takes a few hours to get anywhere. A lot of the time you can have a beer, close your eyes for two minutes, and then you are there. In the U.S. it is much more like a road trip as all the cities are so spread apart.”

― Kelly Jones

“Most women say ‘Please speak to me from the waist up: my brain, my eyes.’”

― Kellyanne Conway

― Kenneth Branagh

“The view of the local scene through the eyes of a native participant in that scene is a different window.”

― Kenneth L. Pike

“Nothing so enchants attorneys general, their eyes generally fixed on higher public office, as slinging accusations against successful financial executives. Preening press conferences and fawning media coverage are virtually guaranteed, whether or not the charges have substance.”

“Ebola is a humiliating disease that strips you of your dignity. You are removed from family and put into isolation where you cannot even see the faces of those caring for you due to the protective suits – you can only see their eyes.”

― Kent Brantly

“I’m a duty solicitor, so I can’t fix someone’s life; all I can do is fix the problem I’ve got in front of my eyes.”

― Kerry Greenwood

“For black people who are really dark – and a lot of black people were averse to be dark skinned – it was believed that you’d be so dark that you couldn’t see them at night unless they were smiling or you could see the whites of their eyes. At one time, it was a sharp comic barb that got levelled at some people.”

― Kerry James Marshall

“We all have that burning question about what happens if we lose somebody we love, especially if we lose them tragically. We wonder what fear was going on, we wonder if we could have reached out and touched them, held their hand, looked in their eyes, been there.”

― Kevin Costner

“Justification is God’s declaration that we, though guilty sinners, are righteous in God’s eyes.”

― Kevin DeYoung

“I think writers are observers and watchers. We always have our ears open and eyes open, so I might see something in everyday life that inspires me. And I think that’s probably more than anything else. Everyday life is where I get my inspiration.”

― Kevin Henkes

“In order for me to write a scene, it’s very important for me to see and experience everything with my own eyes, so yes, I was able to visit some remarkable houses and destinations while I was in China.”

― Kevin Morby

“I see the love in my child’s eyes when he sees me, and I know it’s gigantic. As an older person, I’ve been in love before, and I’ve loved, but this is really an immense, out-of-control-proportion amount of love that you can’t even describe.”

― Kevin Nealon

“Mark Helprin and Lawrence Durrell, both of whom write fat and florid novels that appall me now but opened my eyes to the power of fiction when I was in my 20s.”

― Kevin Patterson

“To look in the eyes of audiences and see the kind of naughty glee that they got with being on the inside, the audience becomes your co-conspirators.”

― Kevin Spacey

“There’s something about the kind of time travel that a poem can provide. It can take you to somewhere else – a culture far from you, a language far from you, but suddenly you’re there. You’re that person, seeing with that person’s eyes. I think that’s really tremendous. Even things like cinema or more traditional history can’t quite do that.”

― Kim Coates

“Sitting one seat away from Nicki Minaj at Marc Jacobs left me speechless. I couldn’t say anything – and that’s the first time that’s ever happened to me! We locked eyes for a second, but I was too scared to talk to her. She looked incredible, of course.”

― Kirstie Alley

“For the day, keep it simple, basic, minimalistic, natural. Stick to peaches and pinks. For night, you can add colour to your eyes, make them smoky, and also use shimmer and bronzer. Night make up also calls for louder lip colours.”

― Kristan Higgins

“I was really the first-line editor of the ‘House of Night’ series. I didn’t write that much of the story, and I didn’t know what was happening until my mom finished the book and sent it to me because I wanted to read it with fresh eyes as a general reader would.”

― Kristin Cast

“I like green or brown eyes. Tall but not overwhelmingly so. I like men who do yoga and meditate.”

― Kristin Davis

“That’s why I’m never happy. Every tragedy, I really feel very painful – especially about a child or old people. This is reality. We try to close eyes and ears, but it’s happening every second, and somehow, unfortunately, I feel a connection.”

― Kristine Opolais

― Krystle D’Souza

“I have always loved fashion, trends, style, make-up and hair, but yes, some sort of a transformation truly happens when I play a ‘bahu’. That’s when I have to wear brown lenses to cover my green eyes, colour my hair dark, wear saris, and surprise myself that I can pull this off, too.”

― Krystle D’Souza

“We’re always looking at this love through the eyes of the person who is suffering because of this love.”

“Discovering various economists, economic works, reading financial periodicals and keeping up on current events in geopolitics and economics around the world opened my eyes to many facets of how the extended order works.”

― Kurt Bills

“I would love to be more specific, but really, any type of bird is the funniest animal. They have to move awkwardly when walking. They have beady eyes; they are very suspicious. They can’t do anything right. They have no hands, which is inherently funny.”

― Kurt Braunohler

“We tend to accept information that confirms our prior beliefs and ignore or discredit information that does not. This confirmation bias settles over our eyes like distorting spectacles for everything we look at.”

“On the first season of ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,’ I was constantly uncomfortable with my eyes. It became annoying filming the show and having to turn away every few seconds and put drops in my eye.”

― Kyle Richards

“This past year has been something else… it’s opened my eyes to many things and many people. It’s had its ups and downs and ins and outs. And I believe we’ve all been able to take something from that and grow in our own imparticular ways. We’ve over come obstacles, and set in motion opportunities that can change our own individual lives.”

― Kyle Schmid

“The first day was memorable for me. I walked into this studio with these giant eyes, slowly met everybody and got to see the story boards and sketches of our characters. I got the see the sets and was just amazed that all this was to be something we all were going to be part of for almost a year.”

― L.A. Reid

“When the whole world has their eyes on you, if you say something that doesn’t truly come from your spirit and your soul, or if you wear something that doesn’t come from your spirit and your soul, it’s an injustice to your position. And so, I’m really myself every single day and I do it because I know my fans would want me to.”

― Lady Gaga

“When you learn how to be really attentive, you learn the importance of patience and appreciating a woman. You’re able to appreciate the softness of her skin and the look in her eyes. It’s a connection.”

― Lamman Rucker

“When you’re the only woman of color, and you walk into a room of people who don’t look like you, most of them with blond hair and blue eyes, it’s disheartening. The weirdest part is that I walk in and assume they think I’m auditioning to play a different role than them, but I’m going out for their same role.”

― Lana Condor

“F2 cars have downforce; they’re quick. But it’s difficult for your brain and eyes to keep up with everything that’s going on once you’re in an F1 car. You get used to it and you learn to stay calm, because if you react too quickly the opposite will happen. Being more relaxed is when it becomes more natural and controlled.”

― Lando Norris

“The first thing I always look at on a girl is her eyes.”

― Landon Liboiron

“The Jewish people and the Negro people both know the meaning of Nordic supremacy. We have both looked into the eyes of terror.”

― Laura Dern

“If you really want something, it’s nerve-racking, but at the same time, I try not to stress myself out about it too much because there are also so many arbitrary things that go into being cast for something – you know, like the color of your eyes, all these things that are kind of out of my control.”

― Laura Harrier

“Far worst of all, the fever had settled in Mary’s eyes, and Mary was blind.”

“Her blue eyes were still beautiful, but they did not know what was before them, and Mary herself could never look through them again to tell Laura what she was thinking without saying a word.”

― Laura Ingalls Wilder

“It’s very hard to put forth a film that’s about love and the joy of love and for it not to be patronising and not make people nauseous or make them roll their eyes.”

― Laura Linney

“For horror movies, it’s great because I know exactly what I am doing and what should be done. But for a cop drama, I can’t calm my face down, and so it’s really nice to be able to be in this genre where nothing is too much, and no one yells at me for having big eyes.”

― Lauren Ashley Carter

“I often play characters on TV shows that are more sweet and naive and just kind of puppy-dog eyes, and I don’t think I am like that as a person.”

― Laurence Olivier

“I take a simple view of life. It is keep your eyes open and get on with it.”

― Laurence Sterne

“We’re good at taking care of little kids, and spend a lot of energy teaching them things like how to read. But when kids get as tall as their parents and can look them in the eyes, we tend to drop the ball – at a time they most need a loving consistent community of adults, be it parents, aunts, uncles, or others.”

― Laurie Halse Anderson

“What she did was to open our eyes to details of country life such as teaching us names of wild flowers and getting us to draw and paint and learn poetry.”

― Laurie Lee

“I’m born originally in Toronto, and I have what I call my ‘Fame’ story. I took a Greyhound bus and went to Alvin Ailey and received Dunham, Horton, Graham technique there, but I could never take my eyes off of Balanchine doing ‘Nutcracker’; to me he’s the best who ever did it.”

― Laurieann Gibson

“Why on earth should I care whether people read me with their eyes or their ears?”

― Leandra Medine

“Next time you look in the mirror, close your eyes and ask yourself when you feel like the best version of you. When you open them, act on that.”

― Leandra Medine

“I understand that there are thick, dark circles under my eyes. I have grown to appreciate them. I have noticed that my nose grows a little hookier on a near-monthly basis. That’s fine. I know there are wrinkles ready to stake their claim as full time residents on my forehead any moment now. My dad has those, too, and I find that endearing.”

― Leandra Medine

“My eyes will never be blue; my bone structure will never allow for you to mistake me for a Scandinavian model.”

― Leandra Medine

“The mid-day sun is too much for most eyes; one is dazzled even with its reflection. Be careful that too broad and high an aim does not paralyze your effort and clog your springs of action.”

― Learned Hand

“When I was a kid, like four or five years old, I was obsessed with the ‘Batman’ TV show in the ’60s. And I took it totally seriously. At that age, I took it completely seriously. I didn’t get the fact that it was kind of played for laughs. I didn’t understand why my mom was rolling her eyes or chuckling.”

― Lee Bermejo

“I do not want to name any individual names, but I felt like when I was working in Hollywood, there were some fellow colleagues of mine who didn’t even look me in the eyes because I was Asian.”

― Lee Byung-hun

“The point of theatre is transformation: to make an extraordinary event out of ordinary material right in front of an audience’s eyes. Where the germ of the idea came from is pretty much irrelevant. What matters to every theatre maker I know is speaking clearly to the audience ‘right now.’”

― Lee Hall

“I just wanted to see China with my own eyes. I wanted to see whether North Korea was the best country in the world or China was the best. I grew up believing that China was much worse than North Kore, because that’s what the regime told us.”

― Lee Hyeon-seo

“Paris is the most beautiful city in the world. It brings tears to your eyes.”

― Lee Unkrich

“Being born with a pair of beady eyes was the best thing that ever happened to me.”

― Lee Van Cleef

“I get startled really easily, so I hate horror films. I have to close my eyes when I think something is going to make me jump, because I just scream.”

― Leigh Lezark

“You know how you’re supposed to choose between playing up your eyes or your lips? I always choose lips. I love the drama.”

― Leila Slimani

“Art is always in the eyes of the beholder. Only posterity has the right to point out our mistakes.”

― Len Wein

“Some ‘Terminator’ fans are outraged that I’m playing Sarah Connor. They think I’m not muscly enough. To be honest, I’m a little tired of the comparisons to Linda Hamilton. I know she will always be the original Sarah Connor, but when people see what I bring to the role, they will look at her with new eyes.”

― Lena Headey

“Being a black lesbian myself, I roll my eyes a little bit when I see black lesbian characters on shows where it’s purely there for decoration. You can just hear it in the writers room… ‘What if we make her a lesbian?’”

― Leonard Mlodinow

“Just as our brains fill in the details of an image our eyes record only roughly, so, too, do our brains employ tricks we are unaware of to fill in details about people we don’t know intimately.”

― Leonard Mlodinow

“You are a victim of your own neural architecture which doesn’t permit you to imagine anything outside of three dimensions. Even two dimensions. People know they can’t visualise four or five dimensions, but they think they can close their eyes and see two dimensions. But they can’t.”

― Les Dawson

“I have to say that when I first started singing, I didn’t think it was a very noble profession. I worked for people like Robert Kennedy and I thought: ‘Wow, that’s what it’s about. That’s how you change the world.’ And then I watched that disintegrate in front of my eyes, and it was very discouraging.”

― Liev Schreiber

“You watch a hockey game, and the hand-eye coordination and the speed is really miraculous; how those guys track the puck alone, just following it with their eyes.”

― Limahl

“Right after Dynasty ended I had a facelift and laser surgery to get rid of lines around my eyes.”

― Linda Evans

“There has been speculation through the years that Elvis has his eyes done or some other mystery procedure, but that mini facelift was the extent of his plastic surgery.”

― Lindsay Wagner

“You always want to go out there with the best book possible, so I listen to what my editors say, and even if they don’t know how to fix it, I always seem to find a way. ‘Trust Your Eyes’ is the best book I’ve written, and I don’t know if I can do any better.”

“Sure there is a sexy attitude, and when they say, ‘Give me a sexy look with your eyes,’ you give it to them. It doesn’t have to relate to the product. People are just drawn to it.”

“Since my dimples only appear whenever I smile, facing everything in life with that smile is a wonderful feeling. Eyes are also the window to one’s self. Just a look can reflect your identity and experiences.”

― Liu Wen

“Before I modeled, I never thought I was beautiful. Even right now, I don’t think I’m beautiful. I think it’s my personality that makes my beauty different and unique. If you look in the past, Chinese people have always considered things like big eyes, pointy nose, or big lips beautiful. I had the same thoughts as a child watching movies.”

― Liu Wen

“This above all makes history useful and desirable; it unfolds before our eyes a glorious record of exemplary actions.”

“Minneapolis just embraced me. There are a lot of weirdos here. It’s awesome, because I’m a weirdo. Thankfully, the city embraced me with open arms. A lot about Minneapolis helped carve my musicality and open my eyes. The whole town is so open-minded compared to like, you know, Texas.”

― Lizzo

“I’ve been blessed enough to have my eyes open because of music, first and foremost.”

― Logic

“Most people remember being 4 objectively, as if they’re seeing a movie of a 4-year-old. But me, if you ask me to think about when I’m 4, I can feel myself being 4, and I am there, looking out through my 4-year-old eyes.”

“I have worked with artists who are super-young and new and experiencing success, and I feel bad because I can see it in their eyes that they truly think that is it for the rest of their life. And I am like, ‘It may be, but you have to work at it, and even if you do, it may not be, so enjoy what is going on right now.’”

― LP

“My dad’s nickname was MacGyver when we were kids. He’d hijack my projects all the time. When I got older, he would not do it as much… but he would just end up hijacking the whole thing. You should see the look in his eyes when he gets to create stuff.”

― Lucas Till

“I hate failure and that divorce was a Number One failure in my eyes. It was the worst period of my life. Neither Desi nor I have been the same since, physically or mentally.”

― Lucille Ball

“At Sunderland, our kit was five times too big, and we got the local bus to games; in America, I got bags of Nike kit, flew to away games, and played in front of thousands of fans. It opened my eyes to what women’s football could – and should – be.”

― Lucy Bronze

“From the first opening of our eyes, it is the light that attracts us. We clutch aimlessly with our baby fingers at the gossamer-motes in the sunbeam, and we die reaching out after an ineffable blending of earthly and heavenly beauty which we shall never fully comprehend.”

― Lucy Larcom

“Men, when they fight in movies, it’s a very different style. Harrison Ford was so cool when he had the whip, and Bruce Lee was such an artist that you couldn’t take your eyes off of him.”

― Lucy Liu

“We made drawings the size of a whole quarter of a room ceiling, which we would then send on to the model makers. I did this every day for two years. Even now I can draw cartouches with my eyes closed.”

― Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

“Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.”

― Ludwig van Beethoven

“Nowadays it is the fashion to emphasize the horrors of the last war. I didn’t find it so horrible. There are just as horrible things happening all round us today, if only we had eyes to see them.”

― Ludwig Wittgenstein

“We cannot continue to close our eyes to the fact that we have to truly embrace green jobs, new technologies and alternative sources of energy.”

― Luis Fortuno

“Mr. Speaker, Americans want, need, and rightfully expect Congress to protect them from the prying eyes of identity thieves and give them back control of their Social Security numbers and personal health information.”

― Luis Gutierrez

“I wish we could not ever get recognised on the streets, do no selfies, and still perform music all over the world. Unfortunately I don’t think that’s going to be the case, but I’m doing my best to just keep my feet on the ground and my eyes on the prize.”

― Lukas Forchhammer

“When you look into the eyes of your people out there that came to see you, that’s when it’s like, ‘Yep, this is what it’s all about.’ This is why we don’t sleep, and this is why we write songs and try to be the best. This moment right here onstage.”

― Luke Bryan

“My blue eyes are my best feature.”

― Luke Goss

“When somebody notices me in the slightest, I can feel the eyes – boom-boom – as soon as they pass.”

― Luke James

“Because of the shape of my eyes, I can wear a lot of make-up. I can do a smoky look in the evening, but in the day I wear a lot less. Most women don’t deal with lip pencils – they have been given a bad name, but are essential, especially as we get older.”

― Lulu

“I was literally told for ‘The Show Goes On’ that I shouldn’t rap too deep. I shouldn’t be too lyrical. It just needs to be something easy on the eyes. Like a record company telling Picasso that we don’t need these abstract interpretations of life, where people have to sit down and look at it and break it down.”

― Lupe Fiasco

“I’ve seen a few wild grizzly bears, mostly in Alaska and British Columbia, and always from a distance. But each grizzly I’ve caught sight of was as fearsome and sublime as the last. You never get used to their raw power and massive bodies, or the mysterious intelligence in their dark, close-set eyes.”

― Lydia Millet

“I go to work the minute I open my eyes.”

― Lynda Barry

“To conclude that women are unfitted to the task of our historic society seems to me the equivalent of closing male eyes to female facts.”

― Lyndon B. Johnson

“Now, as a writer, the whole world is your nail polish display, and what’s more, you can help yourself. A thrilling, colourful array of gorgeous human peculiarity revolves before your eyes, and you still can’t quite believe it’s all yours for the taking.”

― Lynn Coady

“Something I’ve always written about is social expectations: that the eyes of the community are on you all the time, expecting you to line up with certain social norms, certain behaviours. Whenever you forgot about them, they’d be strongly reiterated to you, in no uncertain terms.”

― Lynn Coady

“When I sat in rooms with middle-aged white men, I heard them speaking like young black men in America. They had been solidly middle class for the majority of their working careers, but now they were feeling angry, disaffected, and in some cases, they actually had tears in their eyes.”

― Lynn Nottage

“Nothing seemed more important to me than to make the world aware of the senseless death and starvation in South Sudan. I wanted people to see through the eyes of the suffering so my photos might motivate the international community to act.”

― Lynsey Addario

“For a very long time now, we’ve seen things one way, which is through the eyes of men. Quite frankly, I’m a little bit bored by our stories and the way we perceive things.”

― Lyriq Bent

“My focus is films, and ‘Angela’s Eyes’ is one of those TV projects that has some good TV concepts behind it and good writing.”

― Lyriq Bent

“I go back to the rock n’ roll black leather jacket, red lips, smoky eyes. I like my high heels, maybe some leather pants or ripped jeans, things that have never really gone out of style. Again, it’s very reflective of who I am as a bandmate in our band.”

― Lzzy Hale

“There are a lot of things I can take, and a few that I can’t. What I can’t take is when my older brother, who’s everything that I want to be, starts losing faith in things. I saw that look in your eyes last night. I don’t ever want to see that look in your eyes again.”

― M. Night Shyamalan

“The more kids that we can meet or kids that are terminally ill, we try to do it because it’s really important, and you can see the hope in their eyes and in their families and their parents.”

― M. Shadows

“In the bathroom, having taken my make-up off and opened my eyes, I always think there’s a ghost behind me. It feels like there’s a weird presence. Maybe it’s my brain reacting to me without make-up.”

― Mabel

“I remember trying so hard to get into Bon Iver. I’d lie in bed listening with my eyes screwed up, like, ‘This is just depressing me.’”

― Mabel

“I genuinely liked all of the cast members very much. Steve had a wicked sense of humor. I remember Russell coming to my rescue, once. I watched Eric evolve before everyone’s eyes. Maurice loved what he did, so. He treated his character with respect, down to the costuming.”

― Madeleine Stowe

“When I do sultry, bronzey eyeshadow, my eyes look greener, and when I wear dark or black colors, my eyes get a lot browner.”

― Madison Beer

“If you have to be frightening, you need some actors around you to be really frightened. And if they’re not frightened, you’re not so frightening anymore. In the same way, people say, ‘I think you come in, and you’re really sexy’. But how do you play sexy? It depends on the eyes that are looking.”

― Mads Mikkelsen

“Romantic lovers require from each other at least the facade of reason: We desire to be what romantic love makes us appear in the other’s eyes. We want to imagine we are deserving of the love we inspire.”

― Maggie Gallagher

“When I was in grade school in L.A., I really loved Cyndi Lauper. I did everything I could to look like her. I had wild outfits and always wore different coloured socks. I wore loads of ribbons in my hair and let them fall in my eyes.”

― Maggie Gyllenhaal

“When I was little, my mum would take me to see the orchestra, tell me to close my eyes and think about the story the music was telling. I always spoke about colours. I’d talk about how purple the oboe was.”

― Maggie Rogers

“I close my eyes when I sing so I can feel the song better.”

― Mahalia Jackson

“In the eyes of the world, Malaysia has become a pariah state, a state where anyone can be hauled up and questioned by the police, detained, and charged through abusing laws of the country.”

― Mahathir Mohamad

“He testified that when you looked at it through the eyes of ‘let’s do it’, the costs were very small. They were less than they’d had to spend to host a convention of transportation executives. The cost was not that great.”

― Major Owens

“We sometimes laugh from ear to ear, but it would be impossible for a smile to be wider than the distance between our eyes.”

― Malcolm de Chazal

“In the government’s eyes, the Branch Davidians were a threat.”

― Malcolm Gladwell

“We’ve been doing work outside of the anthem since the beginning. Before the anthem even started, players were involved in these types of social justice issues. The anthem protests or demonstrations just brought eyes and attention to it.”

― Malcolm Jenkins

“I love doing eyes – my signature look is a cat eye. I think it’s so feminine, and it reminds me of old Hollywood.”

― Mallory Jansen

“Books allow you to see the world through the eyes of others.”

― Malorie Blackman

“Books teach children to see the world through the eyes of others and empathise with others. It’s about the story.”

― Malorie Blackman

“My eyes are too small, and they’re too close together, and I have a pointy nose. But who cares? Who cares?!”

― Mamie Gummer

“I’m minimalistic when it comes to makeup, so I’m a sucker for anything that’s multi-tasking. Aquaphor is my go-to product. It’s great for adding gloss to eyes and cheekbones, and amazing for soothing dry cuticles, too.”

― Mandy Moore

“Everything depends on whether we have for opponents those French tricksters or those daring rascals, the English. I prefer the English. Frequently their daring can only be described as stupidity. In their eyes it may be pluck and daring.”

― Manfred von Richthofen

“With directing, it’s all out there, in the moment and in real-time. The pressure and all of the eyes are on you, and you’ve gotta do it. That is the place that made me nervous.”

― Mara Brock Akil

“Here is something no real celebrity will ever tell you: film acting is not very fun. Doing the same thing over and over again until, in the director’s eyes, you ‘get it right’ does not allow for very much creative freedom… In terms of sheer adrenaline, film has absolutely nothing on theater.”

― Mara Wilson

“There’s no one I trust in show business more than Sabrina Wind. She’s my eyes and ears when I can’t be there. She weighs in on everything, from scripts to sets to advertising.”

― Marc Cherry

“Internet marketing entrepreneurs have truly opened my eyes to just how important a quick turnaround time can be. Often times, an interview they conduct with me today is online by the next morning. The interviewee is then able to start making money less than 24 hours after the initial interview.”

― Marc Ostrofsky

“I look forward to doing my part to keep our solemn vow to veterans who have served our country with pride and distinction. They are all heroes in my eyes, and they deserve no less.”

“No economic system is perfect. But the American Free Enterprise system has empowered millions of people in the past. I know, because I saw it with my own eyes.”

― Marco Rubio

“I know America’s great not because I read about it in a book but because I’ve seen it with my own eyes.”

― Marco Rubio

“Ultimately, your economy has to be measured in the real eyes of real people, not simply in statistics that appear in newspapers about the unemployment rate and so forth.”

― Marco Rubio

“The countenance is the portrait of the soul, and the eyes mark its intentions.”

― Marcus Tullius Cicero

“The eyes like sentinel occupy the highest place in the body.”

― Marcus Tullius Cicero

“You can’t be rolling into town with stars in your eyes. A lot of people get to Nashville and immediately start selling themselves: ‘Let’s go to lunch and talk about the business!’ Then you realize everyone is talented here.”

― Maren Morris

“I didn’t move to Nashville with any inkling or dreams of getting a record deal. I didn’t have those stars in my eyes. I just wanted to take a break, relax, and figure out songwriting.”

― Maren Morris

“Generally I finish a first draft in 2-6 months, then I set it aside for a while so that when I come back to it I can read it with fresh eyes and figure out how to improve it.”

― Margaret Haddix

“I was always drawing eyes, even as a child. Eyes fascinated me.”

― Margaret Keane

“In the beginning, I started doing portraits of children, and of course, children have large eyes. For some reason, they just started getting bigger and bigger. Then, when I started painting imaginary children rather than real ones, they became bigger still.”

― Margaret Keane

“We kept my middle schooler home from school for three days before we turned in our final draft because she was so mean and so brutal at editing out all the cheesy bits. She would roll her eyes and make fun of us, and it was what we needed.”

― Margaret Stohl

“I’ve had so many rich, rich, beautiful things happen to me in my life because I do have energy, and I do reach out, and I stretch my eyes.”

― Margaret Trudeau

“I, I am my own woman. I have not been, quote, ‘bred’ to look the other way. I look at that man back there in the green room straight on, eyes wide open, and I look at him with an open heart.”

― Maria Shriver

“As I get older the stars have gone from my eyes more, and I see that life is just something that has to be lived with, that it’s better not to struggle.”

― Marian Keyes

“You are in the back of your head somewhere and you want to close your eyes and go away.”

― Marie Osmond

“When I look in the mirror, I see my late mother: I have her nose, her dark eyes – I call them chocolate eyes – I have her colouring, and my hair is greying the same way, although I use colour and she didn’t.”

― Marie Osmond

“Normally, the thin-skinned have an endless array of excuses for why their workaday interactions are so much harder to bear for them than for the rest of us. In the eyes of the self-suffering, they are being victimised, used and always abused, when they’re actually experiencing exactly the same body blows as the rest of us.”

― Mariella Frostrup

“The real lover is the man who can thrill you just by touching your head or smiling into your eyes – or just by staring into space.”

― Marilyn Monroe

“Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn’t that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you.”

― Marilyn Monroe

“If I close my eyes and think of Hollywood, all I see is one big varicose vein.”

― Marilyn Monroe

“Consider the fellow. He never spends his time telling you about his previous night’s date. You get the idea he has eyes only for you and wouldn’t think of looking at another woman.”

― Marilyn Monroe

“Have you ever noticed that when you must struggle to hear something, you close your eyes?”

― Marilyn vos Savant

“When I’m writing fiction, I’m sort of interested by the fact that somehow or other I can have the feeling of actually seeing things through someone else’s eyes.”

― Marilynne Robinson

“Oddly enough, my favorite genre is not fiction. I’m attracted by primary sources that are relevant to historical questions of interest to me, by famous old books on philosophy or theology that I want to see with my own eyes, by essays on contemporary science, by the literatures of antiquity.”

― Marilynne Robinson

“Close your eyes and place your finger on a map. Wherever it lands, that’s the theme of the evening. So many times we settle for routine dishes. This forces you to try new cuisines.”

― Mario Batali

“I like cast iron coated with enamel for longevity and forgiveness if I happen to take my eyes off the prize while pouring Chianti.”

― Mario Batali

“My pictures are my eyes. I photograph what I see – and what I want to see.”

― Mario Testino

“No matter how fast or how slow you get to the quarterback, it all goes to slow motion when you get there. Everything just stops. You don’t see anything but the quarterback. You don’t hear anything but the quarterback’s breath. It’s almost like you’re a shark. Your eyes get real big and everything’s just quiet.”

― Mario Williams

“You don’t sleep anymore, but at the same time, you have this strength that comes from this life that has just arrived. It’s a big cliche how your priorities change, but every parent knows that sometimes there’s a thunderstorm, and you look at his eyes, and everything is all right. It is a revolution of everything you feel.”

― Marion Cotillard

“I do think I learned to accept myself through the eyes of others when I was young because I wasn’t brought up to think that I was beautiful or told I was beautiful.”

― Marisa Berenson

“My first trimester I was so exhausted. I could sleep 10 hours, then wake up, look in the mirror and still have eyes like a hound dog! I felt like the life was sucked out of me, no matter how much sleep I got. It was obvious that my body was really busy doing something else and ‘beauty sleep’ didn’t exist anymore!”

― Marisa Miller

“I can bring Rain with me everywhere I go, but when she’s in school, I don’t know what I’ll do. The longest I’ve been away from her is three days, and I cried my eyes out. The first day of school will be so hard.”

― Marisol Nichols

“I can honestly say – not proudly, but honestly – before I had a child, I would see things on TV or hear the news, feel sad for the people and move forward with my day. Now I see everything through a mother’s eyes.”

― Marissa Jaret Winokur

“No matter how poor my eyes are I can still talk.”

― Marjory Stoneman Douglas

“Whenever people ask where I get my sick and twisted ideas from, I reply, ‘Just open your eyes.’”

― Mark Billingham

“As a father, you immediately become uncool, especially the older they get. The older you get, it’s inevitable that, as cool as you think you are, you’re probably just as lame in your kids’ eyes.”

― Mark Consuelos

“’I Get Around’ came on one day. I’d never heard the Beach Boys before. The sound was so fresh to me. That was the first time when I truly was gripped by the power of music. It opened my eyes to the heights that music can achieve.”

― Mark Foster

“Art is observing society around you, representing it through your eyes.”

― Mark Foster

“One of the pleasures of the original ‘Grimm’s Fairy Tales’ is how incredibly ghastly they are. The ugly sisters have their eyes pecked out by crows.”

― Mark Gatiss

“You may have heard the saying, ‘When you’re in love, smoke gets in your eyes.’ Well when you’re talking, smoke gets in your eyes and ears. Once you’re on a roll, it’s very easy to not notice that you’ve worn out your welcome.”

― Mark Goulston

“The greatest fight is when you are fighting in the smoke and cannot see with your eyes.”

― Mark Helprin

“A few months before my dad died, his eyes had started to go, and his skin was turning green. When he finally went to hospital, he was diagnosed with late-stage pancreatic cancer. None of us kids knew why the old man ignored the doctors and refused their help, but none of us were surprised, either.”

― Mark Hunt

“’Ugly Betty’ has opened my eyes to the world of fashion journalism – I’m looking forward to going to college for that. Until then, I don’t know. Will I appear on ‘Glee?’”

― Mark Indelicato

“The decision to go to war is the most important decision that I can make as a representative in Congress. As a veteran, I see any potential military action first through the eyes of the young men and women who volunteered to wear the uniform and would carry out such a mission.”

― Mark Kirk

“The American system is a beautiful and durable thing, but flawed. I would like to think that this decadence is not sustainable, whether in the eyes of the electorate or the eyes of whatever the local economy is built on; that would bring me hope.”

― Mark Leibovich

“He was a psychotic. He was a borderline psychotic. He was a terrific, sensational actor, with a magical screen presence, you couldn’t keep your eyes off him, but he was paranoid. He was sure everybody was out to get him.”

― Mark Rydell

“I just want to get through each day without the need to shut my eyes for 10 minutes.”

― Mark Thomas

“You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.”

― Mark Twain

“I have eyes like those of a dead pig.”

― Marlon Brando

“Basic human contact – the meeting of eyes, the exchanging of words – is to the psyche what oxygen is to the brain. If you’re feeling abandoned by the world, interact with anyone you can.”

― Martha Beck

“Between his eyes, there were four lines, the marks of such misery as children should never feel. He spoke with that wonderful whisky voice that so many Spanish children have, and he was a tough and entire little boy.”

― Martha Gellhorn

“An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.”

― Martin Buber

“As soon as you get two actors in a room and they’re locking eyes, they’re doing a scene.”

― Martin Freeman

“We still insist, by and large, in thinking that we can understand China by simply drawing on Western experience, looking at it through Western eyes, using Western concepts. If you want to know why we unerringly seem to get China wrong… this is the reason.”

― Martin Jacques

“I’ve always felt, pound for pound, I’m one of the best guys around; but you get stuck in people’s eyes in a certain way, and it takes an imaginative director who will look at you and realize you can play different kinds of parts because you are an actor.”

― Martin Landau

“I prefer the night to the day and always stay up very late. Darkness is more peaceful, and I don’t like sunshine – it hurts my eyes. When I used to live in more communal circumstances, I had to wait until everyone had gone to bed before I had the peace to write, and I still find I can get on with my writing much better at night.”

― Martin Millar

“If we do find ET, we will at least have something in common with them. They may live on planet Zog and have seven tentacles, but they will be made of the same kinds of atoms as us. If they have eyes, they will gaze out on the same cosmos as we do. They will, like us, trace their origins back to a ‘Big Bang’ 13.8 billion years ago.”

― Martin Rees

“I loved the idea of seeing the world through a boy’s eyes.”

― Martin Scorsese

“I look very different on camera compared with how I do in real life. On camera, I look my best when everything is enhanced, especially my eyes – I like a smoky eye. In real life, I like myself best in tinted moisturiser, lip balm and mascara.”

― Martine McCutcheon

“The Relation we bear to the Wisdom of the Father, the Son of His Love, gives us indeed a dignity which otherwise we have no pretence to. It makes us something, something considerable even in God’s Eyes.”

― Mary Astell

“If you say to a group of women professors, ‘Close your eyes and think of a professor,’ what they will see is a guy. I will. And I’ll stop myself and think, ‘Hey, hang on, what am I doing here?’”

― Mary Beard

“There is no way, absolutely no way, that I would want people to stop reading the ‘Odyssey.’ But I want them to read it with their eyes open. To notice it and then to think what it says about us.”

― Mary Beard

“I usually wear only a bit of pink lippy, but for TV, they add a few extra lashes to brighten my eyes and some colour to my face, as without it, I look pale and uninteresting.”

― Mary Berry

“I roll my eyes at the grandstanding blowhards who have ‘fixed’ themselves, but I keep up with the gizmos and apps that track people’s various rhythms. I’m no lifelogger or body-hacker, but I’m curious, and I want to be in-tune enough to know what’s really the matter so I can level up and be at my most awesome.”

― Mary H.K. Choi

“The American character looks always as if it had just had a rather bad haircut, which gives it, in our eyes at any rate, a greater humanity than the European, which even among its beggars has an all too professional air.”

― Mary McCarthy

“I absolutely adore cows. They’re the most fascinating, gentle and beautiful animals. Their eyes are so amazing. I have ten that live on the land around my house. I love to talk to them. There are few things better than falling asleep in a field and being woken up by an inquisitive cow.”

― Mary Quant

“Most of us pass our lives never once laying eyes on our own organs, the most precious and amazing things we own. Until something goes wrong, we barely give them thought. This seems strange to me. How is it that we find Christina Aguilera more interesting than the inside of our own bodies?”

― Mary Roach

“I’ve had problems with my eyes, and my legs hurt if I walk a great deal. That’s due to very bad circulation. It’s called claudication, and it’s painful. So I have to stop if I’m walking, and pretending I’m looking in the window, so that I can rest them a little bit and then start off again.”

― Mary Tyler Moore

“While I’ve got all my arms and legs and my eyes working at the same time, I’ve got to make as much stuff as I can.”

― Matt Berry

“I think there is a certain charm to the hand drawn image that I like. My problem with CGI is that it’s so rich in texture that my eyes actually get tired. Everything is in focus down to the littlest leaf.”

― Matt Groening

“The moment our daughter was lifted up and we laid eyes on her was incredible.”

― Matt Lanter

“I remember when my daughter, Marina, was born. The second I laid eyes on her, I was in love, and I had never felt that way before. I couldn’t believe it.”

― Matt LeBlanc

“I’m a first-time father, and it was amazing to me to learn that my son could actually use sign language before the spoken word. I could see this intelligence in his eyes before he could speak: how he could understand what was going on around him and was frustrated by that.”

― Matt Reeves

“I remember a kid throwing an orange at the back of my head in Spanish class and calling me four-eyes, and I remember saying, I said, ‘That’s true, and I have two more eyes than you.’ I felt like it was better. If I have four eyes, I’m twice as good as you.”

― Matthew Gray Gubler

“I know it’s cheesy, but if you listen to the universe, it gives you pointers. I strongly believe if you keep your ears open and eyes open, your path will become clear. You just have to make sure you don’t ignore it.”

― Matthew James Thomas

“Eric Schmidt looks innocent enough, with his watercolor blue eyes and his tiny office full of toys and his Google campus stocked with volleyball courts and unlocked bikes and wheat-grass shots and cereal dispensers and Haribo Gummi Bears and heated toilet seats and herb gardens and parking lots with cords hanging to plug in electric cars.”

― Maureen Dowd

“Audiences in London called me the girl with the black cherry eyes.”

― Maureen O’Hara

“I need no dictionary of quotations to remind me that the eyes are the windows of the soul.”

― Max Beerbohm

“A hundred eyes were fixed on her, and half as many hearts lost to her.”

― Max Beerbohm

“All things are in a state of vibration. Vibrations from objects in our surroundings are constantly impinging upon us and carry to our senses a cognition of the external world. The vibrations in the ether act upon our eyes so that we see, and vibrations in the air transmit sounds to the ear.”

― Max Heindel

“I grew up in front of everyone’s eyes in the UFC.”

― Max Holloway

“It is Leistikow’s lasting achievement – and will always remain so – that he found a style that can express the melancholy charm of the surroundings of Berlin. We see the Grunewald lakes and those on the upper Spree through his eyes; he has taught us to see their beauty.”

― Max Liebermann

“Would not the child’s heart break in despair when the first cold storm of the world sweeps over it, if the warm sunlight of love from the eyes of mother and father did not shine upon him like the soft reflection of divine light and love?”

― Max Muller

“All children are born with stars in their eyes, and they are curious. It is important for teachers to be careful not to kill this curiosity. A lot can go wrong. Children can be teased, even by teachers.”

― May-Britt Moser

“Children need teachers who have stars in their eyes themselves and who treat them with respect.”

― May-Britt Moser

“I love smokey eyes and glossy lips.”

― Maye Musk

“I’m not such a huge hater of anti-aging things because when I put makeup on, I look younger. You can brighten up your eyes and look more glamorous and more confident.”

― Maye Musk

“I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun doing anything in my life than trading verses with Daryl Hall on ‘Private Eyes.’ That’s as fun as it gets.”

― Mayer Hawthorne

“If you meet people who have been successful in Hollywood, or look a their photographs, you see a haunted look in their eyes, you sense a trapped feeling.”

― Meg Tilly

“When I talk about my husband, I feel as if people roll their eyes. It’s like when you’re 16 and order a martini, and the waiter says, ‘Do you think I’m stupid?’. They can’t grasp that I’m old enough to be married.”

― Megan Fox

“I always have to have mascara; otherwise, I feel like I don’t look awake enough. It’s like, ‘I have eyes now!’”

― Megan Nicole

“Everyone who has a pair of eyes in this country understands the racial tensions and the issues we have are very serious and they’re not going away. Just because we had Barack Obama as our president and, on paper, everything looks equal, it’s very clearly not.”

― Megan Rapinoe

“Curl the lashes, concealer under the eyes, blush, ChapStick, and highlight in the inner corner of the eye.”

― Meghan Markle

“My mother was a free-spirited clinical therapist, and I had the most hard-working father, a television lighting director by trade. My mum raised me to be a global citizen, with eyes open to sometimes harsh realities.”

― Meghan Markle

“Grief is a bad moon, a sleeper wave. It’s like having an inner combatant, a saboteur who, at the slightest change in the sunlight, or at the first notes of a jingle for a dog food commercial, will flick the memory switch, bringing tears to your eyes.”

― Meghan O’Rourke

“I’m definitely bigger than a Rihanna. Pop stars nowadays are all perfect Barbie-doll bodies, and they talk about how they keep their bodies up with hard work, so in my eyes, it’s good to have a regular, average body type in the charts.”

― Meghan Trainor

“When people talk about fake news, you know, a lot of folks just roll their eyes, like ‘Oh, you know, whatever; people will figure it out.’ The truth is, they don’t always figure it out.”

― Megyn Kelly

“I know that one of my difficulties as an actor is to try to do too much, from all those years ago when my acting took place live on a stage. It was just my shiny face there, so you’ve gotta be super careful how much over-expressing you’re doing with your eyes and nose and so on.”

― Melissa Leo

“More than anything else, my mother wanted to be an actress – a famous actress – which in the 1950s was all about being young, sexy, and available. She was all that, and more. She had big blue eyes, alabaster skin, a heart-shaped face, a beautiful figure. She was just a knockout.”

“My father was a jazz tenor sax player. He played in a lot of big bands. So I had that sound around me all the time. The first record that really caught my ear was Clifford Brown’s ‘Brownie Eyes.’ I grew up listening to John Coltrane and Illinois Jacquet. This is where I come from… I love improvisational music.”

― Meshell Ndegeocello

“I like to do projects that challenge me, and hopefully in turn challenge the audience, or open your eyes to something you’re not aware of.”

― Michael Arden

“I’m always much more inspired by random people on the street. I live down by NYU and The New School, and I’d almost say close your eyes and pull a student out, and they’re gonna be a little bit cooler than the average celebrity.”

― Michael Bastian

“But sequence comparisons simply can’t account for the development of complex biochemical systems any more than Darwin’s comparison of simple and complex eyes told him how vision worked.”

― Michael Behe

“Imitation is flattery, and The Hills Have Eyes is a classic.”

― Michael Berryman

“It is difficult, but intriguing, to imagine seeing the world as a fly might. First, flies don’t have nearly the same visual resolution that we do… so you have to imagine a fuzzier image. Second, fly eyes are faster than our own and are very sensitive to motion.”

― Michael Dickinson

“We discovered that fruit flies alter course in less than one one-hundredth of a second, 50 times faster than we blink our eyes, which is faster than we ever imagined.”

― Michael Dickinson

“One of the fastest things a fruit fly does is take information from its eyes and react accordingly.”

― Michael Dickinson

“Politics is intensely physical: your hands touch, clasp and hold, and your eyes are always reaching for contact. None of this came naturally to me. I’d always put my trust in words and let the words do the work, but in politics, the real message is physical.”

― Michael Ignatieff

“The best evaluation I can make of a player is to look in his eyes and see how scared they are.”

― Michael Jordan

“All good art is seditious, but the people in authority can never recognise it. I think when you mention sedition, artists are the ones whose eyes light up thinking, ‘Oh, yes, I want some of that!’”

― Michael Leunig

“Only the best books are special. Why? Because they open our eyes, touch us, excite us, extend us.”

― Michael Morpurgo

“The most important thing is to live an interesting life. Keep your eyes, ears and heart open. Talk to people and visit interesting places, and don’t forget to ask questions. To be a writer you need to drink in the world around you so it’s always there in your head.”

― Michael Morpurgo

“I look at it somewhat as a way – when you learn juggling, what you learn is how to feel with your eyes and see with your hands because you’re not looking at your hands, you’re looking at where the balls are, or you’re looking at the audience.”

― Michael Moschen

“In God’s eyes, there’s not before and after. Every moment of time is simultaneous to God.”

― Michael Novak

“My kids are one, three, five and eight, and we are all horsey. The kids have got their ponies and can ride. Our foundation mare is special to our hearts. She was one of my first ever horses. She was my first ever winner at Chester, which is also special, and she’s just the apple of our eyes, really.”

― Michael Owen

“The way I look at myself, the biggest achievement in my eyes – forget winning trophies or scoring in World Cups – is that I’m still at a top club playing at a really high standard having been almost two different players.”

― Michael Owen

“Roja Dove – who, at 58, is a stock-straight six feet and handsome with lantern jaw, blue eyes, and impeccably combed silvering hair on the sides of an otherwise tanned bald head – may possess the finest nose in the world.”

― Michael Paterniti

“I think to be – for me to be an American is – you know, it’s one of the greatest things in the world for – you know, for me just because I’ve been able to grow up with everything. The freedom. You know, in my eyes this is the greatest country in the world.”

― Michael Phelps

“When you look into someone’s eyes, it may be like your connection to self. Two intuitive people, at the right moment, at the right time, could know they’re in love at that moment.”

― Michael Pitt

“My eyes are at different levels, and my right ear’s a bit bigger than my left – which showed up particularly in school photographs – so my mother used to call me her ‘little Picasso.’”

― Michael Portillo

“We think of our eyes as video cameras and our brains as blank tapes to be filled with sensory inputs.”

― Michael Shermer

“The intelligence community does not have complete ‘eyes on’ the totality of the Iranian nuclear program, nor can it guarantee that we have identified all of Iran’s nuclear facilities and processes.”

― Michael T. Flynn

“President Obama is an inspiration of mine, and interning with his administration in the White House opened my eyes to the possibilities of making change at the local level.”

― Michael Tubbs

― Michel de Montaigne

“It is necessary to keep one’s compass in one’s eyes and not in the hand, for the hands execute, but the eye judges.”

― Michelangelo

“We’re seeing the fulfillment of the Book of Judges here in our own time – every man doing that which is right in his own eyes.”

― Michele Bachmann

“The clock has been turned back on racial progress in America, though scarcely anyone seems to notice. All eyes are fixed on people like Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey who have defied the odds and achieved great power, wealth, and fame.”

― Michelle Alexander

“Anyone can wear glitter, even a woman in her 60s. It’s all about techniques. Instead of applying glitter all over the face, you can just add a little to the inner corner of your eyes or on your brow bone, or even on your Cupid’s bow. It just adds this magical element to your makeup.”

― Michelle Phan

“Just like hair frames our face, brows frame our eyes. I see so much potential in harmonized beauty whenever I see a woman who’s not filling in her brows, and I just want to go in with my brow pencil and just be like, ‘Filling in eyebrows, OK, done – look in the mirror and be inspired.’ That’s one of my pet peeves, but beauty is subjective.”

― Michelle Phan

“Western beauty is considered the dominant beauty in the world. Tall, blond, blue eyes. I always felt a little self-conscious because I wanted to be more Caucasian. I tried to get bigger eyes… I would dress preppy.”

― Michelle Phan

“Beauty shouldn’t be superficial and should come from within, and your eyes will tell the story.”

― Michelle Yeoh

“It was like baptism by fire. There was no school for studying acting. You just have to take it upon yourself to learn from your peers. It’s about opening your eyes, listening, and watching.”

― Michelle Yeoh

“I’m a big illustration and comic book fan. In my eyes, comic books and illustration are the same kind of art forms.”

“Anything with Soros, I lay low. People kind of just roll their eyes when you bring him up.”

― Mike Cernovich

“I continually ask myself if a decision I’m about to make falls short in the eyes of God or my family or my colleagues. It’s actually a pretty simple litmus test: am I doing the right thing or not? The answer is generally an easy one.”

― Mike Gallagher

“Last tour my bass rig was breaking down every other night. That was a pain. We would get on stage and Trey would count off the song, and I’d play the first note and nothing would be there. Those guys would just roll their eyes.”

― Mike Schultz

“A fresh pair of eyes can often find problems.”

― Mike Simpson

“As I approach my 88th birthday, it’s become apparent to me that my eyes and ears, among other appurtenances, aren’t quite what they used to be. The prospect of long flights to wherever in search of whatever are not quite as appealing.”

― Mike Wallace

“Dullness is more than a religious issue, it is a cultural issue. Our entire culture has become dull. Dullness is the absence of the light of our souls. Look around. We have lost the sparkle in our eyes, the passion in our marriages, the meaning in our work, the joy of our faith.”

― Mike Yaconelli

“Anyone who supports terrorism, anyone who sees terrorism as a legitimate means, anyone who uses terrorism to cause the death of innocent people is a terrorist in my eyes.”

― Milos Zeman

“It would be disingenuous of me to blanket-ly love everything a woman has produced simply to make a statement that we’re all in this together. No. We’re in Hollywood trying to be competitive, and get numbers, have our eyes on the Nielsens and things like that.”

“I love to accentuate my eyes, so I’ll wear eyeshadow and mascara.”

― Ming Xi

“For any victim, particularly us Americans, it is difficult to see ourselves through the eyes of our offender. But for any victim it is the most salutary thing to do.”

“Bologna is a deli meat for people with eyes.”

― Mitch Hedberg

“I’m not looking for anything more than any other guy. I like a good smile. Pretty eyes. She has to be active, like not play-sports active, but she’ll play air hockey, do some pool, go for rides on the Santa Monica Pier. I would much rather have fun with her than do the cool thing.”

― Mitchel Musso

“If I am elected President of these United States, I will work with all my energy and soul to restore that America, to lift our eyes to a better future. That future is our destiny. That future is out there. It is waiting for us. Our children deserve it, our nation depends upon it, the peace and freedom of the world require it.”

― Mitt Romney

“I fear that the day I die, I am going to die without accomplishing what I have in my mind. Life is too short, and a lot of things can happen, and I am really keen to see it with my own eyes – and that is why I am in a hurry.”

― Mohammad bin Salman

“I’ve been acting since I was 10. At age 14, 15 and 16, it’s difficult to find roles and to find yourself, even, and when everyone’s eyes are on you, it’s difficult.”

― Moises Arias

“One of the main reasons I write fiction is to try to understand what life is like for people other than myself, to try to see the world through my characters’ eyes. I often find that I’m able to understand certain emotional truths about my own life by exploring things from different vantages.”

― Molly Antopol

“I approach everything, including sobriety, with the same mentality I approached sports with. You’re going to put in the time. You’ve got to suit up, show up, and keep your eyes on the win.”

― Molly Bloom

“My body is so important to me… my face, my arms, my legs, my hands, my eyes, everything. I use everything I have.”

― Monica Bellucci

“I used to get stuck trying to find the first sentence of a story, then I realised that it was often because I didn’t know what problem a character was facing in the story. As soon as I did, I could have the character trying to do something about it or have the problem whack him between the eyes.”

― Morris Gleitzman

“Everything’s got space between it, the planets, trees, your eyes. Your eyes get too close together, it’s a whole different world. You can lose perspective.”

― Muhammad Yunus

“If there were a being in the world whose eyes could look into other people’s hearts, very few men or women would be able to face up to it.”

― Munshi Premchand

“Now judicial review, beloved by conservatives, can, of course, fulfill the excellent function of declaring government interventions and tyrannies unconstitutional. But it can also validate and legitimize the government in the eyes of the people by declaring these actions valid and constitutional.”

― Murray Rothbard

“I can’t believe what’s happening visually, in front of my eyes.”

― Murray Walker

“I don’t portray a terrorist. The American fans label me a terrorist. It doesn’t matter what I claim to be: in their eyes, I am whatever they say I am despite the fact that I’m not committing any ‘acts of terror.’ I ask you, how am I portraying a terrorist? Because I look like a Muslim?”

― Mustafa Ali

“I do this maneuver, my finishing maneuver. It’s called the 054, and it’s a 450 splash, but it’s going backwards. I know my opponents aren’t going to be thrilled to hear this, but I don’t know what I’m doing up there. I literally close my eyes, and I just jump, and my body just takes over, and thankfully I haven’t hurt anybody.”

― Mustafa Ali

“I think that the greatest gift God ever gave man is not the gift of sight but the gift of vision. Sight is a function of the eyes, but vision is a function of the heart.”

“When genocide is committed, it must be seen. People must look at it with open eyes, not minimize its impact.”

“I am inspired by anything beautiful. Sometime it’s a pair of eyes or flowing gorgeous hair, other times it’s the sky or a sunset. I’ve been inspired by supple skin or the texture of a soft shirt.”

“To my young friends out there: Life can be great, but not when you can’t see it. So, open your eyes to life: to see it in the vivid colors that God gave us as a precious gift to His children, to enjoy life to the fullest, and to make it count. Say yes to your life.”

― Nancy Reagan

“For millennia, human beings have been finding new ways to look at the world through each others’ eyes: from projecting ourselves onto the characters in novels or movies to dressing up in costume to devouring the details of some celebrity’s life in ‘Hello’ or ‘OK.’”

― Naomi Alderman

“The way in which people talk about climate is just so wonky and so abstract and such a boys’ club that it makes a lot of women just roll their eyes or feel that they are somehow not qualified. I certainly had to fight that feeling in myself in order to write about it.”

― Naomi Klein

“I needed more stuff that glowed so when the lights went out, you could actually see me the whole time. So I slowly built it from there. I wanted everything to glow. I want my hair to glow, I want my nails to glow, I want my eyes to glow, I want my lips to glow, you know?”

― Naomi

“It’s true about the eyes being the window to the soul. Your face can be etched with worry, and twisted by ageing, but the eyes tell the true story of who you are.”

“Being a fighter is no joke. Year in and year out. Especially as a world champion. All eyes are on you, and you can’t go where you want, eat what you want.”

― Naseem Hamed

“Famously, Anne Boleyn was not a beauty: she was more about quirkiness and an innate sensuality, and there are a lot of references to her eyes. Which sends out a great message for women, because life is not about the aesthetic all the time.”

― Natalie Dormer

“You could pack for a trip to Europe with the bags under my eyes!”

― Natalie Morales

“I’m constantly pitching one episode where we see life through Castle’s eyes. I think Castle’s just a little off as far as his perception goes. A very, very clever man, but I want to see the world as Castle sees it – kind of a rose-colored glasses, all the women find him irresistible, all the guys find him super cool and do whatever he says.”

― Nathan Fillion

“I don’t even think I’ll see all of ‘The Mist’ until I’m 18. I’m going to the premiere, but I’ll close my eyes during the scarier scenes.”

― Nathan Gamble

“Prince is the ultimate performer. Prince is that dude that’s going to get on stage by himself, if he need to, but hold you in the palm of his hand. Like, you can’t take your eyes off the man when he’s on stage, and he could just be sitting there playing his guitar.”

― Ne-Yo

“In any restaurant, my eyes alight first, as if by an atavistic pull, on the meat dishes on the menu. In any dinner party I throw, I think of the non-vegetarian dish as central. I view this as a combination of weakness, greed and moral failure. Someone please help.”

― Neel Mukherjee

“The other day at a drive-through, I reminded the teenage girl serving me that she forgot my drinks. She looked at me, hissed, rolled her eyes, and then took her sweet time getting me the sodas.”

― Neil Cavuto

“I’ve always enjoyed seeing the world through the eyes of my grandchildren.”

― Neil Sedaka

“I’ve begun to look at the world through apocalypse eyes. Our society, which seems so sturdily built out of concrete and custom, is just a temporary resting place, a hotel our civilization checked into a couple hundred years ago and must one day check out of.”

― Neil Strauss

“Back then people closed their eyes and listened to music. Today there’s a lot of images that go with the music. A lot of music is crap and it’s all commercial and the images are all trying to sell the record.”

― Neil Young

“When blue-eyed Donald Trump married hazel-eyed Ivana Zelnickova, he probably figured his broad-shouldered DNA would dominate her girly alleles. But genetics played a cruel trick on Trump: Of the couple’s three children, only the youngest, Eric, wound up with his father’s fishy blue eyes.”

― Nell Scovell

“In March 2010, I attended an art opening for Kimberly Brooks’s show ‘The Stylist Project’ in Los Angeles. It was a starry celebration hosted by Dior and ‘Vanity Fair’ to benefit P.S. Arts. But even as fun-to-gape-at actresses like Christina Hendricks arrived, I couldn’t take my eyes off the oil portraits.”

― Nell Scovell

“Then you’ve got Georgetown, and I really just like everything about them. When I went down there with my mom, it really opened my eyes to what they were all about. I have to factor in what a school like that can do for me, even away from being a basketball player.”

― Nerlens Noel

“We were so unprepared that when my husband took off to get groceries, and we’d adopted a 3-year-old, he came back with baby formula, a steak and a teething ring. We had no idea what we were doing. But you learn. There’s no way to fully prepare. Just eyes wide open – jump.”

“Katy Perry still gets me every time. She’s very funny in person! We met at the Teen Choice Awards and she pulled my cheeks apart and told me how cute I was. My life was literally flashing before my eyes!”

― Niall Horan

“I don’t mind my eyebrows. They add… something to me. I wouldn’t say they were my best feature, though. People tell me they like my eyes. They distract from the eyebrows.”

― Nicholas Hoult

“I know when I sit with my band members and we’re playing back a song that we’ve done, I know that they’re experiencing it in a completely different way and hearing stuff that they’re alerted to because the way the interpret the world is through their ears. Mine is through my eyes.”

― Nick Cave

“I can weep pretty easily. I can get tears in my eyes from a beautiful work of art.”

― Nick Flynn

“During Seattle’s successful campaign for a $15 an hour minimum wage, our opponents would sometimes roll their eyes and snort, ‘If $15 is so good, why not $50?’ It was a straw man argument: Nobody was proposing a $50 minimum wage; it would have been too high, and we said so.”

― Nick Hanauer

“I think the game in general is changing so fast right before our eyes.”

― Nicolas Malebranche

“For me the most important thing to do in a selfie is to have an opinion and to say something with the picture. Don’t just take a picture of yourself like, ‘Here I am.’ It’s what are you thinking? Are you happy? Are you angry? Do you like it? Do you not like it? Think an emotion and apply it to your eyes.”

― Nigel Barker

“Since we launched the original ‘Pop Idol’ in England, I’ve remained close with Simon Fuller. Working as executive producer on ‘American idol’ for its first seven years not only was an inspirational journey into the heart of American pop culture, it opened my eyes to the untapped potential of the incredibly dynamic young people in this world.”

― Nigel Lythgoe

“I just want to open people’s eyes to different things.”

― Nikki Glaser

“You have to age gracefully. And that’s what I love about Keith Richards. That’s what I love about the Rolling Stones. They are aging gracefully. They are falling apart at the seams right before our eyes, and they are doing it gracefully. And that’s the most beautiful thing that we can do.”

― Nikki Sixx

“The real meaning of enlightenment is to gaze with undimmed eyes on all darkness.”

― Nikos Kazantzakis

“A weak soul does not have the endurance to resist the flesh for very long. It grows heavy, becomes flesh itself, and the contest ends. But among responsible men, men who keep their eyes riveted day and night upon the Supreme Duty, the conflict between flesh and spirit breaks out mercilessly and may last until death.”

― Nikos Kazantzakis

“Since we cannot change reality, let us change the eyes which see reality.”

― Nikos Kazantzakis

“To me, having a good brow is very important because it is what frames the most important feature on you: your eyes.”

“Don’t overdo it. If you’re doing a strong lip, keep the eyes simple, and the other way around.”

― Nina Agdal

“I have a giant baking book, so I close my eyes and pick a random page. Whatever it is, I try to bake it!”

― Nina Dobrev

“It wasn’t fun to go to school, because we had to wear these blue things around our necks. We had to join the Pioneer Society, and we had to salute with our hands over our eyes. Even then, I was thinking for myself. I thought this wasn’t so different from the way the Nazis had conditioned people.”

― Nina Hagen

“I’m often asked how I portray the roles I play so convincingly and express so much through my eyes. Quite frankly, I don’t know how to explain that. I guess it’s about who I’m as a person; I radiate it through my eyes.”

“My dad was a great movie companion. He wouldn’t diminish ‘The Jerk.’ If I liked it, he liked it. He could see it through my eyes.”

“I like how food can look incredible more than I like eating it. I started moving food around the plate to make it appear I’d eaten more but then enjoyed making faces on the plate – peas for eyebrows, Yorkshire puddings for eyes.”

― Noel Fielding

“I don’t feel 70. I am still looking out from 14-year-old eyes.”

― Nolan Bushnell

“There’s something known as the Uncanny Valley where things look a little too real and you’re not quite sure what you’re looking at. It becomes weird like it did in ‘The Polar Express,’ where the eyes seem so realistic, and yet you know it’s animated.”

― Nolan North

“And some poets are far better read off the page because they’re very bad speakers. I’m thinking of one in particular whom I won’t name, a good poet, and he reads in such a dry, boring way, your eyes start drooping.”

― Norman MacCaig

“When I go to farms or little towns, I am always surprised at the discontent I find. And New York, too often, has looked across the sea toward Europe. And all of us who turn our eyes away from what we have are missing life.”

― Norman Rockwell

“Particularly when you’re dealing with very high ranking people, you know, you have to get their attention, they are used to, by their rank, of having their own way and doing their own thing and when it’s necessary to all work together on something, sometimes you have to hit the mule between the eyes with a two by four to get its attention.”

“When I was 7 and went to the zoo with my second-grade class, I saw chimpanzee eyes for the first time – the eyes of an unhappy animal, all alone, locked in a bare, concrete-floored, iron-barred cage in one of the nastier, old-fashioned zoos. I remember looking at the chimp, then looking away.”

― Octavia E. Butler

“In each verse, a decision awaits us, and we can’t choose to close our eyes and let instinct work on its own. Poetic instinct consists of an alert tension.”

― Olivia Thirlby

“When you a darker brunette and have pale skin like I do, it can wash you out a bit, so learning to contour is really helpful. I think you can be a bit more bold with eye makeup to define your eyes, and the same with lip colors – you can go for dark wine colors, which I love.”

― Olivia Wilde

“I’m a mixture of Anglo-Saxon, a bit of Spanish and one-eighth American. I’ve often wondered if I have an Asiatic ancestor from the East as well because I have deep-set eyes. Make-up artists are constantly trying to shade my eyelids, and I have to point out that I don’t have any!”

― Olivia Williams

“There are two smells that I can recognize right away. The smell of the boxing ring and the smell of a garage. That’s where I grew up. I can recognize these places with my eyes closed.”

“To be honest, busking was a massive part of becoming aware of homelessness. I used to run into a lot of ‘Big Issue’ sellers and a lot of people on the street. It really opened my eyes to the kind of life that they live and the options that are open for them – or not, actually.”

― Passenger

“Love and pain become one in the same in the eyes of a wounded child.”

― Pat Benatar

“For blue eyes, use warm browns, peaches, and yellows to compliment the eyes. Brown and hazel eyes sparkle in blue and purple shades, which flatters the orange undertone of brown eyes. Green eyes stand out in burgundy and plum shades like CoverGirl Queen Collection Vivid Impact Eyeliner in Cabernet.”

― Pat McGrath

“Use colors on eyes that contrast with the iris to make eyes appear more vibrant.”

― Pat McGrath

“Both liquid and pencil eyeliner can be used on the top and bottom eyes. I then use eye shadow over the pencil to blend evenly to ensure there’s no skipping and patchiness. With pencil as a base, it’s easier to get a seamlessly blended effect. If a stronger line is desired, trace over the pencil line with liquid eyeliner.”

― Pat McGrath

“I like to pour my wines for people. I watch their eyes, I can see what they’ll like. Most people say they don’t like dry wine because they haven’t had a dry wine that’s clean and fruity, instead of a big, oaky thing.”

― Pat Paulsen

“The greatest gift is our own eyes, sense of smell, and abilities to deduce.”

― Patricia Cornwell

“I don’t believe being gay is something you can change, no more than you can change the color of your hair or your eyes. Well, I dye my hair, so maybe that’s not the best example. But your eyes!”

― Patrick Vieira

“I’m a good listener, and I take into consideration everything people tell me, but at the same time, I believe my eyes as well as the experience I had as a player. So players who underperform? There has to be a reason why… my job is for them to perform.”

― Patrick Vieira

“Decades later I would look into my father’s eyes and try to reach past the murkiness of Alzheimer’s with my words, my apology, hoping that in his heart he heard me and understood.”

― Patti Davis

“I don’t know why Alzheimer’s was allowed to steal so much of my father before releasing him into the arms of death. But I know that at his last moment, when he opened his eyes, eyes that had not opened for many, many days, and looked at my mother, he showed us that neither disease nor death can conquer love.”

― Patti Davis

“I come from a real working class background, and I didn’t know anyone sophisticated – except I saw Edie Sedgewick once at the Art Museum in Philly. She had these black leotards and little black pumps and this big ermine cape and all these white dogs and black sunglasses and black eyes. She was classy!”

― Patti Smith

“A sympathetic parent might see the spark of consciousness in a baby’s large eyes and eagerly accept the popular claim that babies are wonderful learners, but it is hard to avoid the impression that they begin as ignorant as bread loaves.”

― Paul Bloom

“Perhaps looking out through big baby eyes – if we could – would not be as revelatory experience as many imagine. We might see a world inhabited by objects and people, a world infused with causation, agency, and morality – a world that would surprise us not by its freshness but by its familiarity.”

― Paul Bloom

― Paul Gosar

“When America’s early pioneers first turned their eyes toward the West, they did not demand that somebody take care of them if they got ill or got old. They did not demand maximum pay for minimum work, and even pay for no work at all.”

― Paul Sparks

“I’m a gamer, and I became obsessed with ‘Resident Evil.’ I played the first two games back to back. It took me, like, 10 days. I disappeared from view. Stayed in my apartment. Didn’t return anyone’s calls. After 10 days, I emerged with 10 days’ worth of stubble and kind of bloodshot eyes going, ‘I love this! We have to turn it into a movie.’”

― Paul W. S. Anderson

“I like to work long-term on projects. It’s fun to go in and out and get in there and do something and leave it behind, but to me, the real satisfaction is doing five years on a show, where you’re really just up to your eyes in it. It’s part of your life. That’s what makes me the happiest.”

“There is a saying, ‘Eyes are the windows to the soul.’ It means, mostly, people can see through someone else by eye contact in seven seconds. I have a habit that if I meet someone I don’t know, I’d like to look at her or his eyes on purpose. When my eyes lay on them, I can immediately see their true color.”

― Peng Liyuan

“All are essentially equal in the eyes of God.”

― Penn Badgley

“I think one of the things about Donald Trump that’s interesting is he lives in a rarified atmosphere where it’s possible that he doesn’t get enough feedback, enough people rolling their eyes at him. It’s a danger more in show business than it is with wealth.”

― Peter Guber

“When somebody is enthusiastic about a job opportunity – but gives off the feeling that this is not the only one they have on the table – they become more seductive in the employer’s eyes. You become more desirable because it shows that you’re making a conscious and thoughtful decision for the right reasons.”

― Peter Guber

“Forty-eight frames per second is a way, way better way to look at 3D. It’s so much more comfortable on the eyes.”

“Our function as playwrights to some extent is to make audiences see with their ears, because films make us see with our eyes much better.”

― Peter Shaffer

“Celebrity poverty, that’s the hidden scandal in Blair’s Britain. You can’t help but worry for them. A girl I knew developed X-ray eyes for celebrity sorrows. She taught me to read the subtext of the down-market celebrity interview, she knew all the Hollywood codes, and followed the deep backgrounds.”

― Philip Pullman

“It is always right to detect a fraud, and to perceive a folly; but it is very often wrong to expose either. A man of business should always have his eyes open, but must often seem to have them shut.”

― Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield

“It’s part of my life to feel like a criminal, to have eyes in my back and see if I’m being followed. It’s a feeling that comes from street juggling because I have been arrested so many times.”

― Philippe Petit

“There were a couple Aborigines in my primary school, but we never spoke to them. They kept to themselves, and we never really even locked eyes. They weren’t acknowledged officially either.”

― Phoebe Waller-Bridge

“Loving oneself isn’t hard, when you understand who and what ‘yourself’ is. It has nothing to do with the shape of your face, the size of your eyes, the length of your hair or the quality of your clothes. It’s so beyond all of those things and it’s what gives life to everything about you. Your own self is such a treasure.”

― Phylicia Rashad

“Mugabe had a very strange quality about him. He was dapper. He had the strangest skin – it looks very shiny, but it’s not oily. It’s stretched very finely over his flesh. His eyes have layers of cyan crystals in them. It was a quiet, dark moment when I took his picture.”

“The eyes are not responsible when the mind does the seeing.”

― Publilius Syrus

“I grew up doing a lot of traveling. My mom left home when she was 15 and traveled to 48 different countries and speaks six different languages. So I grew up with my eyes open. She raised me so that if my heart says something is wrong, I have to go help. What’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong.”

“When I was 14, I would sit up in my room and write till my eyes would bleed.”

― Rafael Nadal

“Apart from being celebrities, there’s a huge amount of respect associated with being cricketers and a certain amount of reverence and honour associated with representing India.

― Randy Johnson

“People miss those who they love. It brings tears to my eyes to see the longing for me. But it’s my decision to do fewer films and more protagonist-based roles. For me to take up something, it has to make a lot of sense to me.”

― Rani Mukerji

“Everyone has a mobile phone with a camera; every phone can record video. You have to be prepared to be captured. It’s very easy to be misconstrued and presented in ways that you wouldn’t prefer. If I take a selfie with bags under my eyes, it becomes a hashtag.”

― Rey Mysterio

“At one point, I left Mexico to continue my career globally, and a new star came about. He is known now as Myzteziz, but back then he was known as Mistico, and then Sin Cara when he joined WWE. I would have to say the fans, in their eyes, see a lot of similarities between us.”

― Rey Mysterio

“Here’s my take on Andy Kaufman… For Kaufman, comedy was a skill that was open for examination. He didn’t just do comedy, he deconstructed it like it was a transistor set. He pulled out all the wires and switched them around, often in front of our very eyes.”

― Rhys Darby

“I love that feeling you get once you leave a cinema having just watched a movie during the day. Your eyes slowly adjust to the natural light, and your mind, being a little slower, takes its time to separate the images of film from the reality you are suddenly facing.”

“Ethnically, Tuareg describe themselves as white. And they don’t look Arab or black. Many Tuareg have light skin, light eyes and sharp angular noses and cheekbones. They are cousins of the Berbers of North Africa. Some legends say the Tuareg are the decedents of an ancient Roman legion that disappeared into the desert two millennia ago.”

― Richard Engel

“Change begins with understanding and understanding begins by identifying oneself with another person: in a word, empathy. The arts enable us to put ourselves in the minds, eyes, ears and hearts of other human beings.”

― River Viiperi

“The camera or the microphone in the booth is merciless. If you don’t believe what you’re saying, it hears it. If you don’t believe it, it sees it in your eyes, it hears it in your voice that there isn’t the conviction there.”

― Riz Ahmed

“Reshoots are par for the course on any film. For me, I kind of love it because, as an actor, you always feel that there was a way you could have done it differently. Being able to go back and do some stuff again is always a blessing in my eyes.”

― Riz Ahmed

“Am I ever going to be able to play football again? What’s going on with my career? I was just thinking things like that. You’ve got tears going down your eyes. You’ve got your trainers right there and my parents right there. I was just thinking, “Is this it?” I didn’t know what a knee injury was. I’d never felt pain like that.”

― Rob Gronkowski

“Ninety percent of people’s nightmares is standing in front of 1,000 people. Did you know that? And having to speak. You would have thought it would have been a madman tying you up and taking your eyes out.”

― Robert Carlyle

“Stunted varieties were generally chosen, particularly if they had the side branches opposite or regular, for much depends upon this; a one-sided tree is of no value in the eyes of the Chinese.”

― Robert Fortune

“Junipers are generally chosen for the latter purpose, as they can be more readily bent into the desired form; the eyes and tongue are added afterwards, and the representation altogether is really good.”

― Robert Fortune

― Robert Horry

“If you want to be a poet, you can just write it on a napkin, and it’s the length of the napkin, I guess. But usually you decide you’ll rhyme it, or you’ll have a formula. In radio, that’s something called, ‘Close your eyes and listen.’”

― Robert Krulwich

“Keep your eyes open to your mercies. The man who forgets to be thankful has fallen asleep in life.”

― Robert Louis Stevenson

“You can forgive people who do not follow you through a philosophical disquisition; but to find your wife laughing when you had tears in your eyes, or staring when you were in a fit of laughter, would go some way towards a dissolution of the marriage.”

― Robert Schumann

“There are instances where, in my mid to late 20s, I very often found myself going for roles that they didn’t want to cast me in, because I’d done good work, but in a producer’s eyes, I wasn’t high enough status. So I lost out.”

― Robert Sheehan

― Robert Smith

“When I look in the mirror, I see the ageing process at full pelt, the hairline in retreat, the bags under the eyes growing and darkening, that kind of thing. I suppose it would be easier if I weren’t an actor, but I am fairly philosophical about it.”

― Robert Webb

“Usually in theater, the visual repeats the verbal. The visual dwindles into decoration. But I think with my eyes. For me, the visual is not an afterthought, not an illustration of the text. If it says the same thing as the words, why look? The visual must be so compelling that a deaf man would sit though the performance fascinated.”

― Robert Wilson

“So see every opportunity as golden, and keep your eyes on the prize – yours, not anybody else’s.”

― Roberta Flack

“A certain rough-around-the-edges improvisational looseness – a sense of something coming together before your eyes, or not quite – may be one of the things that distinguishes performance art from theater.”

― Roberta Smith

“When you tell people you’re a playwright, their eyes sort of glaze over. But when you say you write the ‘Fantastic Four’ or ‘Spider-Man,’ they perk up. It’s a touchstone that has gained more credibility as artistic expression.”

― Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

“I always had that joy of the game in my eyes everywhere I played, because it was the best thing, but Brescia probably had less pressure. Maybe people might perceive more enjoyment because the pressure was different, but it was the same. I enjoyed the pressure, no problem!”

“Your eyes are very important as a professional footballer.”

― Roberto Firmino

“I think of myself as the eyes and ears and voice of the reader.”

― Robin Givhan

“As the character talks and moves, the world around him is slowly revealed, just like dollying a camera back for a wider look at things. So all my stories start with a character, and that character introduces setting, culture, conflict, government, economy… all of it, through his or her eyes.”

― Robin Hobb

“I never slept when I lost. I’d see the sun come up without ever having closed my eyes. I’d see those base hits over and over and they would drive me crazy.”

― Robin Van Persie

“If to the viewer’s eyes, my world appears less beautiful than his, I’m to be pitied and the viewer praised.”

― Rockwell Kent

“It was 1995, the year Ben Crenshaw won the Masters. I was watching on TV, and I remember watching him sink his final putt on the 18th hole. He broke down in tears because his coach, Harvey Penick, had just died. I sat there watching with a box of Kleenex, wiping tears from my eyes and going, ‘OK, this is crazy – I’m crying over golf!’”

― Rocky Carroll

“When you make a movie like ‘Straw Dogs,’ your goal is to have people’s eyes remain glued to the screen. It serves you no purpose to turn away from the screen.”

― Rod Lurie

“You wind up creating from silence, like painting a picture on a blank canvas that could bring tears to somebody’s eyes. As songwriters, our blank canvas is silence. Then we write a song from an idea that can change somebody’s life. Songwriting is the closest thing to magic that we could ever experience. That’s why I love songwriting.”

― Rodney Atkins

“You start creating art through the people that are looking at you, trying to route it through their sensibilities or their eyes, and then it’s not you anymore.”

― Rodney Crowell

“The focus is on the Middle East, so there are a lot of eyes on the battlefield. But there are other things that are happening around the world, in Northern Africa, things happen in the Southern Hemisphere and in Central and South America.”

― Rodney Frelinghuysen

“Any eyes on me – a late-night street sweeper, some dude texting in his parked car, the homeless guy talking to himself – make me feel uncomfortable when I skate. Everyone expects me to do certain things.”

― Rodney Mullen

“You can have a movie with hardly any cuts, or very few cuts, that is fascinating, you can’t take your eyes away from it… Look at some of the long takes in Citizen Kane.”

― Roger Ebert

“I want to play King Lear, Macbeth, Benedict, Coriolanus. I wouldn’t mind doing Hamlet again. Well, I’m a little old. Perhaps I can rub Vaseline on the audience’s eyes.”

“Whatever brief delights it provides, mere strangeness in poetry and prose eventually leaves us cold, especially when we suspect the writer is stretching for effect to avoid the actual life before his eyes.”

― Roger Rosenblatt

“It was not a friendly game, and Jerry certainly did not have friendliness in his eyes. He had an extra mean streak that day. He was out of control and probably should have been ejected.”

― Roger Staubach

“To play my father, his struggles, and how he overcame it all would require you to bring tears to my eyes. It has to be one of his sons. And we’re not, none of us, in Hollywood.”

“My friends call me an owl. Apparently, it’s a combination of being wise and having big eyes.”

― Romy Madley Croft

“What I’ve become convinced makes a writer are the days you hate it, the days you’d rather stick those pencils in your eyes. Sometimes I almost punish myself – if I’m not going be able to write, I’m not going be able to do anything else. I just sit there and wait.”

― Ron Rash

“That was part of David Duke’s agenda, is to turn the Klan from a racist organization in the eyes of the public into something that is respectable and acceptable.”

“When the eyes are on you for the first time, you can’t believe that people aren’t criticising you.”

― Rosamund Pike

“When sighted people cover their eyes or find themselves in a dark place, this is something that’s very terrifying for us. And so in general, we assume that this is what blindness means. But of course, it isn’t. For people who were born blind or who go blind at a very young age, that’s not at all what blindness means.”

― Rosemary Mahoney

“Most of us who have healthy eyesight are extremely attached to our vision, often without being conscious that we are. We depend heavily on our eyes, and yet we rarely give them a second thought. I, at least, am this way. The physical world is almost hyper-vivid to me.”

― Rosemary Mahoney

“We are not born with effective vision. The human infant has to learn how to see. The eyes gather information, they transmit it to the brain, but the brain doesn’t know how to process it yet. We learn how to see in a way that’s very similar to the way we learn how to speak. It takes a couple of years.”

― Rosemary Mahoney

“I’m allergic to cats, so I’m psychologically wired to associating kittens with itchy eyes and popping Claritin.”

― Ross Butler

“For too many families, the aftershock of the war in Afghanistan will be felt every day, most probably for the rest of their lives. I know because I’ve looked into the eyes and the faces of grieving mothers.”

― Ross Kemp

“Confronting a stadium audience, you can’t see the whites of their eyes. It’s just an amorphous mass of noise and, of course, you can’t see the alleged billions watching at home either, so the degree to which you are intimidated is quite low.”

― Rowan Atkinson

“Keeping our eyes on journey’s end is what we need – the place where we see at last the world that is greater than the world, the new creation that cannot be contained in present thought or social order or piety.”

― Rowan Williams

“If I were ever to grace the pages of ‘Vogue,’ I would want my image retouched because the audience is so vast. There is great vulnerability in being exposed to that many judging eyes. I feel no small amount of guilt over this willingness to surrender my ideals.”

― Roxane Gay

“A visual image is a simple thing, a picture that enters the eyes.”

― Roy H. Williams

“I close my eyes, then I drift away, into the magic night I softly say. A silent prayer, like dreamers do, then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you.”

― Roz Chast

“And uh, I’m glad that I still have my hands and my eyes to work with.”

― Rube Goldberg

“I remember the first time seeing myself on TV, when my family was watching the documentary ‘Eyes on the Prize’ for the first time. There were pictures of people going up the school stairs, and Mom said, ‘Oh, that’s you!’ I said, ‘I can’t believe this. This is important.’”

“Heavy pillars, carved from the rock, bear the roof. Slowly, one’s eyes become accustomed to the dim light; then they can make out marvelous representations from Indian mythology carved on the walls.”

― Rudolf Steiner

“It should not be expected that what is spiritual can be brought before the eyes, before the senses. It must be experienced inwardly and spiritually.”

― Rudolf Steiner

“The vision of the human being is confined today to the physical body. One regards this as a reality; one cannot raise oneself to what is spiritual. The souls who now look upon their own physical bodies with their eyes, and are unable to rise to what is spiritual, were incarnated among earlier peoples as Greeks, as Romans, and as ancient Egyptians.”

― Rudolf Steiner

“An American may speak love with his lips; the Italian must say it with his eyes.”

“United States foreign policy, which includes national security, is literally disintegrating before our eyes.”

“The Nehru years were rather very peaceful years. A lot happened in those years: dams were built, five-year plans were made, Chandigarh was built in front of my eyes. Those were the years I grew up in.”

― Ruskin Bond

“I want to make movies that pierce people’s hearts and touch them in some way, even if it’s just for the night while they’re in the cinema; in that moment, I want to bring actual tears to their eyes and goosebumps to their skin.”

― Russell Crowe

“An idea is an eye given by God for the seeing of God. Some of these eyes we cannot bear to look out of; we blind them as quickly as possible.”

― Ruud Gullit

― Ryan Guzman

“I’m a sucker for a woman with beautiful eyes.”

― Ryan Guzman

“Without audiences, artists would be doing something else, and their creative and technical skills would fall on absent eyes.”

― Ryan McPartlin

“There’s a TV element to everything in my eyes.”

― Ryan Seacrest

“I actually have eyes that irritate easily, so I wear the glasses to keep stuff out of my eyes. If you see me in shades indoors, you might be like, ‘RZA is wearing shades inside. What the hell is going on?’ I’m protecting my eyes, and I’m looking cool.”

― Rza

“Growing new limbs, copying internal organs like a Xerox machine, exponential increases in computing power, better eyes and ears – I could read stories like this endlessly.”

― S. Jay Olshansky

“In fantasy and science fiction, world-building is an essential part of the story. But as a reader, I don’t just want descriptions of food, clothing, and places. I want to understand the world to its core, through the eyes of those who live in it.”

― Sabaa Tahir

“The universal practice of closing the eyes of the dead may be thought to have originated in the desire that he might be prevented from seeing his way.”

― Sabine Baring-Gould

“In France, successive waves of Gaul, Visigoth, and Frank have swept over the land and have dominated it. But the fair hair and blue eyes and the clear skin of the conquering races have been submerged by the rising and overflow of the dusky blood of the original population.”

― Sabine Baring-Gould

“I like to emphasize my eyes because if I do it well enough, then they look very blue.”

― Sabrina Carpenter

“I like smudgy black eyes and pale lips for evening. Red lipstick looks great on other girls, but it’s too much on me.”

― Saffron Aldridge

“If you look at the Qur’an with the eyes of a sound heart, you will see that its six aspects are so brilliant and transparent that no darkness, no misguidance, no doubt or suspicion, no trickery could enter it or find a fissure through which to enter and violate its purity.”

― Said Nursi

“It’s very difficult for me to look at politics with clear eyes. I’ll read a story in the paper and the first thing that pops into my head is, what would my dad say about that? Then I try to break out of that and think, ‘What would Said say about that,’ and then it gets complicated.”

― Said Sayrafiezadeh

“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.”

― Saint Ignatius

“I plainly told them, ‘Be ye sincerely converted, and with your whole heart, to the Lord our God, for nothing is impossible to Him, that He may today send you food on your road, even until you are satisfied, because He has everywhere abundance.’ And, with God’s help, it was so done: Behold!

Let us strive to keep this always before our eyes and to rouse ourselves to love Him.”

― Saint Teresa of Avila

“My good works, however wretched and imperfect, have been made better and perfected by Him Who is my Lord: He has rendered them meritorious. As to my evil deeds and my sins, He hid them at once. The eyes of those who saw them, He made even blind; and He has blotted them out of their memory.”

― Saint Teresa of Avila

― Sarah Hyland

“It’s a great story for us whenever an entrepreneur makes a crazy amount of money and we get to tell the world about it. For the entrepreneur? Not so much.

― Sarita Choudhury

“My mom was like, ‘What did I do as a mom for you to want to become a wrestler?’ They just didn’t understand, and it’s really hard to explain what made me love wrestling so much. There’s something about it that made me fall in love, and ever since I laid my eyes on it, I knew I wanted to be a professional wrestler in the WWE.”

“If you give the boss all the decision-making power, they see the world through their eyes. The big innovations are generally such a shift that they won’t see it. For a long time, it looked like it was just inevitable that you would get slow and bureaucratic.”

― Scott Cook

“If I were talking to someone, I’d look at their eyes, not at the blemish on the side of their face. But as soon as you open up that photo on a 30-inch monitor, you’d say, ‘Oh my gosh, where did that come from?’”

― Scott Kelby

“There’s an alchemy that happens in my eyes when you mix it up, when you have a seasoned actor on set and your first-timer.”

― Sean Baker

“I think most of our eyes are trained to background being completely out of focus, but you can’t do that with an iPhone unless you manipulate it quite a lot in post. You have to accept the fact that your film is going to look a little different on the big screen. Even though the resolution holds up, it does have something very different about it.”

“The kids are fixing their eyes on social media, and the stories they’re looking at may not be the most important things. I’m guilty of that, too. Do you want to look at Instagram or the news? It’s a difficult, and weird, situation.”

― Selena Gomez

“I’m flatchested, I’m short, I’m brunette, I have droopy eyes, and so people have a hard time casting me as a ‘beauty.’”

― Selma Blair

“I think that the memory of Armenia’s genocide opened my eyes at an early age to the existence of political cynicism.”

― Serj Tankian

“The mission of NASA’s Kepler telescope is to lift the scales from our eyes and reveal to us just how typical our home world is. Kepler operates by measuring the dimming of stars as planets pass (‘transit’) in front of them. It has found thousands of previously unknown worlds.”

― Seth Shostak

“Heads are a good deal, and I think they would be a common feature. It’s hard to think of species that don’t have heads, although there are some. It’s good to have a head because it puts some of the sensory organs – eyes, ears, whiskers or whatever – next to the CPU, the brain.”

― Seth Shostak

“Are two eyes, four appendages and an upright posture really essential for any creature that can ace the galactic SAT’s? Maybe not. In fact, I’d venture that any aliens we ever detect or (less likely) encounter will look quite different than this self-referential stereotype.”

― Seth Shostak

“The biggest thing I take away from the Army is that work ethic and being able to focus and put your eyes on a goal.”

― Shailene Woodley

“I like to see people’s eyes when I’m singing to them.”

― Shakira

“Being raised in a developing country opened my eyes to so much I cannot tolerate. In Colombia, education is sometimes considered a luxury, not a human right. And it’s not a priority in the agendas of many leaders.”

― Shakira

“When two people marry they become in the eyes of the law one person, and that one person is the husband.”

― Shana Alexander

“I’ll close my eyes really, really tight and make you all go away.”

“Though the euphoria surrounding Barack Obama’s election last week as President-elect has not yet begun to subside, it is already time to recognise that the most important challenge facing the next U.S. president is to restore America’s standing in the eyes of the world.”

― Shashi Tharoor

“I can kind of picture what I want to do and my body just does it. You feel your way through a trick. I close my eyes sometimes.”

― Shaun White

“Having all eyes on me at all times is hard to deal with, but it’s great. It feels like you’ve already accomplished something. It’s already predetermined that you’re going to do well.”

― Shaun White

“When I started, you didn’t focus so much on production, certainly not – gosh – down to the finest little detail of how you shifted your eyes or how you turned to somebody. A lot of the shots were far away from a still camera. There weren’t as many close-ups and intimacy.”

― Shawn Michaels

“I grew up in a predominantly Caucasian community, and most of my friends had blonde hair and blue eyes. So I was always straightening my hair, wearing colored contacts, and I never tanned, if I could help it.”

― Shay Mitchell

“To get rid of swelling… I put green tea bags on my eyelids. Or I grab cold spoons that I leave in the freezer and put them on my eyes.”

― Shay Mitchell

“I wouldn’t consciously pursue trying to make something for the charts. It’s just not in my scope now. I’d rather stick needles in my eyes.”

― Sheena Easton

“We women are the same: I am always more attracted to the dangerous mystery man with piercing eyes and stubble rather than the clean-shaven ‘puppy dog’ type who is probably much better for me in the long run.”

― Shenaz Treasury

“For my first wedding, I cried all the way down the aisle. My fake eyelash came off. My nose was red. My eyes were swollen. I’m not one of those pretty criers.”

― Sherri Shepherd

“Actually, 3D is really the most normal thing because it’s how those of us with two eyes usually see the world. TVs are the unusual things in 2D!”

― Shigeru Miyamoto

“If you saw me without concealer, you would see that I have raccoon eyes. And I think my forehead is too small. I am not quintessentially beautiful. I am photogenic, but that’s only because I have learned how to make the best of what I’ve got from the make-up artists I have worked with.”

― Shilpa Shetty

“Filming is long – you get very tired, and your skin breaks out and you get lumps and bumps. It’s easier if you’re allowed to have bags under your eyes.”

― Shirley Henderson

“When a child comes in, I believe that it’s a ‘multipersonhood,’ and it knows it, its consciousness knows it, and it has a nuclei in the center of its consciousness that is the repository of all experience and all knowledge. And when you look in the eyes of your baby and you feel this sense that they are an old soul, I believe indeed they are.”

― Shirley MacLaine

“Studio chief Winfield Sheehan wanted me to remain a little girl. If I lost my innocence, he said, it would show in my eyes.”

“When the heart is full, the eyes overflow.”

― Sholom Aleichem

“He that has eyes to see and ears to hear may convince himself that no mortal can keep a secret. If his lips are silent, he chatters with his fingertips; betrayal oozes out of him at every pore.”

― Sigmund Freud

“I don’t think an alien will be a blob. If aliens are out there they should have evolved just like us. They should have eyes and be walking on two legs. In short if there is any life out there then it is likely to be very similar to us.”

― Simon Conway Morris

“In October, 1865, occurred what was, in my eyes, the greatest event in the history of the observatory. The new transit circle arrived from Berlin in its boxes.”

― Simon Newcomb

“The U.S. Constitution protects our privacy from the prying eyes of government. It does not, however, protect us from the prying eyes of companies and corporations.”

― Simon Sinek

“My height was not a deterrent, and it did not make me the person I am. It was like my long brown hair or my brown eyes – a physical characteristic that differentiated me from quite a percentage of the population.”

― Sinead Burke

“Sigmund Freud makes people irritable. Whenever someone mentions Freud, say, at a dinner party, I see eyes roll and listen to the nasty remarks that follow.”

― Siri Hustvedt

“What’s the classical moment that every actor or actress deals with? A tragic thing. They get that blank, faraway look in their eyes. But in life, it’s not that way.”

“My character from ‘Panda Eyes,’ Fay, is the character I see myself in a lot.”

― Sophie Turner

“I can’t watch ‘Titanic’ without breaking down within the first 10 minutes. You know, when it got re-released in 3D, I went to see it again. My mom came to pick me up from the cinema, and I was just bawling my eyes out.”

― Sophie Turner

“Truthfully, I think anything involving Tebow opens people’s eyes.”

― Spencer Paysinger

“As a parent, your perspective of childhood is through the eyes of this person that you care so much about and you just want the world to be great for them. You want their life to be easy and happy.”

― Spike Jonze

“When you drive, you are doing several things at once. You are using your eyes, ears, hands, your mind. If you have meditated for many years and have reached a lofty height in your meditation, as I have, you can meditate while running and cycling and painting.”

― Sri Chinmoy

“The face is the mirror of the mind, and eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart.”

― St. Jerome

“The name came about from me just closing my eyes and sticking a pen on a map of South Africa. St. Lucia was the fifth place that the pen landed on.”

― St. Lucia

“I think the more I learn, the more I see, and what you see makes your eyes and talent evolve.”

― Stacey Bendet

“Reading ‘The Third Sex’ feels a bit like flying in a veering helicopter over a rain forest that is disappearing before one’s eyes.”

― Stacey D’Erasmo

“Your self-esteem won’t come from body parts. You need to step away from the mirror every once in a while, and look for another reflection, like the one in the eyes of the people who love you and admire you.”

― Stacy London

“You can close your eyes to reality but not to memories.”

― Stanislaw Jerzy Lec

“I read. I order books from the States. I literally go into bookstores, close my eyes, and take things off the shelf. If I don’t like the book after a bit, I don’t finish it. But I like to be surprised.”

― Stanley Kubrick

“When something hasn’t been around much for a while, and one example of it turns up and catches people’s eyes, they go looking for more like it – until they get tired of it again.”

― Stanley Schmidt

“If you look at Kirsten Dunst’s performance in ‘Melancholia,’ which I think is absolutely wonderful – it’s not even in the text, because she doesn’t say much; it’s all in her eyes. She doesn’t have to explain what she’s feeling. You just feel it.”

― Stellan Skarsgard

“Michael Owen’s wonder goal against Argentina in 1998 was one defining memory, and as a Sunderland supporter, I remember crying my eyes out after they lost that play-off final against Charlton. Much as that hurt, it made me realise how much I wanted to play the game.”

― Steph Houghton

“Weird stuff, for me, is not that weird. I guess if it were other people, they’d think it was weird. I eat nutritional yeast. And sometimes I take clay shots to help pull toxins out of my body. I eat weird L.A. food, so I guess that’s probably weird in other people’s eyes.”

― Stephanie Beatriz

“I can’t stand people who look into the camera and look into the eyes of millions of people and wax political correctness.”

― Stephen A. Smith

“Maybe, instead of putting our standards on other people, we should be very reticent, apprehensive, and deliberate and methodical in choosing whom we choose to elevate in the eyes of the public as role models.”

― Stephen A. Smith

“Eisenhower had the clearest blue eyes. He would fix them on you. In my every interview with him, he would lock his eyes on to mine and keep them there.”

― Stephen Ambrose

“I had a dog I raised for many years. He was a Pekingese with big eyes and a flat face, very cute.”

― Stephen Chow

“I would say laughter is the best medicine. But it’s more than that. It’s an entire regime of antibiotics and steroids. Laughter brings the swelling down on our national psyche and then applies an antibiotic cream. You gotta keep it away from your eyes.”

― Stephen Colbert

“The first Bond movie I saw at cinemas was ‘For Your Eyes Only’ when I was almost 10. I got into the Fleming books after watching ‘A View To A Kill’ a few years later.”

― Stephen Cole

“Listen with your eyes for feelings.”

― Stephen Covey

“Pat Boone is an icon in this country. He’s not a guy who’s going to pull the wool over people’s eyes. He’s going to tell them the truth.”

― Stephen Fincher

“I like how TV used to be – ‘Boys from the Blackstuff’ and ‘Play for Today’, instead of ‘Stars in Your Eyes’ and ‘Celebrity Come Cook With Me’ or whatever. I hate all that stuff.”

― Stephen Graham

“In around 2000, I became aware of a recurring problem of the ‘tightness’ around my cueing action, which somehow stops me believing that I can play the shot – even shots I could previously play with my eyes shut.”

― Stephen Hendry

“I drew these natural sponges for a while and gave them googly eyes, and it didn’t come together until I drew a sink sponge one day. I thought, ‘This is the guy.’ He’s the square peg, literally, in this world of animals.”

― Stephen Hillenburg

“In ‘Beowulf,’ director Robert Zemeckis uses a technique called ‘motion capture’ to conjure fantastical things, angles into action and sweeping vistas to stun your eyes and take your breath away. But what he hasn’t mastered and what the technique can’t do is this: emotion capture.”

― Stephen Hunter

“I’m very opinionated about movie musicals when they’re adapted from live shows. You’ll sit still for a three-minute song in a theater. But in movies, a glance from someone’s eyes will tell you the whole story in a few seconds.”

― Stephen Sondheim

“A man with a mouth like a mastiff, a brow like a mountain, and eyes like burning antracite – that was Dan’l Webster in his prime.”

― Stephen Vincent Benet

“When you close your eyes to tragedy, you close your eyes to greatness.”

― Stephen Vizinczey

“Maybe it’s because I’m a little naive, but I do like to think that there aren’t really very many truly bad people in the world. I think that everybody has their reasons for what they do, and if you really look through their eyes, you could probably understand them.”

― Stephenie Meyer

“Sarah Paulson doesn’t lie. Like, in life. But she doesn’t lie onscreen, and you can’t take your eyes off somebody who always tells the truth. She’s the most honest person I’ve ever met.”

― Sterling K. Brown

“If you keep your eyes fixed on Christ, He’s going to reward you.”

― Steve Alford

“It’s all about persevering. You know you’re going to be tested. If you keep your eyes fixed on Christ, He’s going to reward you.”

― Steve Alford

“One of our ancestors came over on the Mayflower, and we had family in Jamestown as well… I was raised where service was a part of the fabric of life. It wasn’t one-upmanship. No one bragged about their medals, but you could see the look in the eyes, the tip of the hat. You served your country first, then you went to work and had a family.”

― Steve Daines

“The 1988 biopic of bebop immortal Charlie Parker, ‘Bird,’ was the film that opened my eyes to Clint Eastwood’s potential as a filmmaker.”

― Steve Erickson

“Typing with your fingers or thumbs is sooooo 2012. I tweeted that earlier in the year. I type with my eyes. Not only that, I navigate my computer, create and play music, keep a calendar, conference call, lead web X meetings, text and, obviously, tweet with my eyes.”

― Steve Gleason

“ALS does not affect cognitive process. Stephen Hawking, one of smartest people on the planet, has ALS. It rarely affects the eyes. It doesn’t affect senses like hearing, taste and touch.”

― Steve Gleason

“I’m not a great actor – let’s face it. I don’t have a great deal of scope. There are certain things I can do, but when I’m bad, I stink. There’s something about my shaggy dog eyes that makes people think I’m good. I’m not all that good.”

― Steve McQueen

“You have more independent eyes scrutinizing the decision-making and financial statements of companies.”

― Steve Odland

“On the morning of September 11th, I was literally about 18 blocks from the World Trade Center. I witnessed in person what a lot of people witnessed in person, but what the world really saw on the television screen, I saw it with my own eyes that morning.”

― Steve Tisch

“British culture loves the image of itself in the mirror; it doesn’t want to look deep inside, behind the eyes, inside the brain, inside where those shivers and nightmares lie.”

― Steven Berkoff

“When I see out-of-shape, overweight people huffing and puffing in the gym, my eyes well up with tears of pride. I want to walk over to them, hug them, and say, ‘Good on you for getting in here. It gets better!’ You know why? Because they’re challenging themselves.”

― Steven Crowder

“As much as we sometimes roll our eyes at the ivory-tower isolation of universities, they continue to serve as remarkable engines of innovation.”

― Steven Johnson

“Every year, I come to TED prepared to roll my eyes a lot at the beginning, but knowing that at some point in the intellectual marathon, my brain will buckle to the cascade of ideas and bend to the painstakingly rehearsed presentations.”

― Steven Levy

“One of the reasons why I think virtual reality, as a narrative format, is never going to go beyond the short-form immersion space is because the bedrock of visual storytelling is the reverse angle. If you can’t look into the eyes of the protagonist, you cannot hold people’s attention for more than 15 minutes.”

― Steven Soderbergh

“When we opened our eyes, we saw bedrock exposed in the walls of the crater.”

― Steven Squyres

“One of the pleasures of looking at the world through mathematical eyes is that you can see certain patterns that would otherwise be hidden.”

“Just because a man lacks the use of his eyes doesn’t mean he lacks vision.”

“All the people on the Flickr team are committed to what we’re doing, which is to be the eyes of the world.”

― Stewart Butterfield

“When I see things through my eyes, I don’t want to ever just be really negative towards someone’s performance. There are many ways to skin a cat. Sometimes I watch the guys, and they’re doing different things than I would have done, but I don’t ever want to be too critical.”

― Stone Cold Steve Austin

“I wear decent shades, but if I lose them, I’ll go right to the store and get cheap ones because my eyes are that sensitive.”

― Stone Cold Steve Austin

“I’m blind in my left eye. Contrary to what people say, it is not a glass eye, so I have to protect my eyes at all cost.”

― Stuart Scott

“Empathy is the most mysterious transaction that the human soul can have, and it’s accessible to all of us, but we have to give ourselves the opportunity to identify, to plunge ourselves in a story where we see the world from the bottom up or through another’s eyes or heart.”

― Sue Monk Kidd

“I read usually in the morning, in my kitchen at breakfast – a short reading time, usually poetry. I read in bed every night. I usually get in bed pretty early with a book, and I read until I can’t prop my eyes open anymore – sometimes rather late.”

― Sue Monk Kidd

“I am happier with my face since I started wearing glasses at 27, because they punctuate it. They also hide one of my biggest defects, my baggy eyes.”

― Sue Perkins

“Let us not be bitter about the past, but let us keep our eyes firmly on the future.”

― Sukarno

“The first lesson my kids got about the ocean was to respect it. You can never turn your back on the ocean when you’re dealing with tides and currents – factors beyond your control. You have to be the CEO of your family on the water. CEO stands for ‘constant eyes on,’ and it’s something I never forget.”

― Summer Sanders

“When a baby is in the room with two women, and one is considered more beautiful than the other, the infant’s eyes will go to the more beautiful one.”

― Susan Anton

“I think ‘Gatsby’ is hobbled, in part, by its status as a Great American Novel. People kind of roll their eyes before they’ve even opened it, treat it with a ‘been there, done that’ attitude. I know I did. It took me years to re-open the novel and see how much I’d missed.”

― Susan Choi

“I guess I strongly feel that we cannot pretend that the Third World is not part of our world. We cannot say ‘OK, there’s that problem over there, let’s just close our eyes’ – we cannot do that.”

― Susanne Bier

“When you are on stage, you don’t see faces. The lights are in your eyes and you see just this black void out in front of you. And yet you know there is life out there, and you have to get your message across.”

― Suzanne Farrell

“At one of the games I broadcast at Florida State a few years back, the mercury soared to 105 degrees, and you try attempting to look composed and professional, providing insight from the benches, while sweat pours into your eyes.”

― Suzy Shuster

“I’ve been searching for a genre that would be most adequate to my vision of the world to convey how my ear hears and my eyes see life. I tried this and that, and finally, I chose a genre where human voices speak for themselves. But I don’t just record a dry history of events and facts; I’m writing a history of human feelings.”

― Svetlana Alexievich

“All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.”

― Swami Vivekananda

“I have had to answer questions like, ‘But you don’t look like lead material.’ Now, I still don’t know what ‘lead material’ looks like because everyone has eyes, a nose, and a face.”

― Swara Bhaskar

“As a student, I was a total jhalli who used to wear torn denims, faded kurtis, kohled eyes and thought that I was the coolest girl ever! We were a bunch of students who used to do social-issue-based street plays and believed that we could bring about a change in the world.”

― Swara Bhaskar

“At some point during the filmmaking process, you lose objectivity, and you need the eyes of someone who understands the process and has been in the trenches.”

― Sydney Pollack

“I love working with an actress that you can just look at them and be able to react with your eyes and not have to do much else.”

― Sydney Sweeney

“The song ‘Wolf Eyes,’ I wrote because I felt like I was such a kitten. I want to be more of a wolf. I want to be stronger and more independent. I sort of wrote the song for that.”

― Sydney Wayser

“I’m not handsome in the classical sense. The eyes droop, the mouth is crooked, the teeth aren’t straight, the voice sounds like a Mafioso pallbearer, but somehow it all works.”

― Sylvester Stallone

“You know what I think happened? After ‘Rocky,’ I was almost set up in the eyes of the media to make a flop.”

― Sylvester Stallone

“I have a talent for happiness. I look with the eyes of a painter, and I see beauty.”

― Sylvia Kristel

“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again.”

“I looked on my stomach and saw Frieda Rebecca, white as flour with the cream that covers new babies, funny little dark squiggles of hair plastered over her head, with big, dark-blue eyes.”

― Sylvia Plath

“I think the only regret I have is not to have opened my eyes sooner to aspects of life like the relationship of man with nature and animals.”

― Sylvie Guillem

“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.”

― T. E. Lawrence

“The hottest look for a night out is a deep side part. If that part is not at least three inches in length, then start over. The wider the part, the more open your eyes appear. It is an alluring and seductive look that will keep your date’s attention the entire night.”

― Tabatha Coffey

“Growing up, I was always in normal public school which is very important in my eyes.”

― Tahj Mowry

“My wide eyes make me look much younger without make-up, and although it’s fun to have a line in innocence corrupted, I doubt I’ll get to play the vampy vixen or a Hedda Gabler or Lady Macbeth.”

― Talulah Riley

“I do not have PTSD, but if I watch part of a movie like ‘The Hurt Locker,’ or when I spend time around Blackhawk helicopters, I will close my eyes that night and live an entire day in Iraq, flying my missions. I remember the smell and the feel and the heat and everything about it. Then I wake up in Illinois, and I’m exhausted.”

― Tammy Duckworth

“Everybody has ways in which they’ve been lucky in life, and everybody also has ways in which they’ve definitely rolled snake eyes.”

― Tana French

“I’m very proud that I was always able to be myself and didn’t really care what people thought when I wanted bangs with my little Con-Air curling iron, and I wanted to wear glitter on my eyes and rings on every finger and charm necklaces that look like I was wearing baggage while I skated. But I do look back, and man, those ’90s bangs.”

― Tara Lipinski

“I can make a scene that’s not supposed to be sexy, very sexy. It’s a power you’re born with. It’s not a physical thing, it comes from inside. It’s all in the eyes.”

― Tara Reid

“In my eyes, a patriot is little more than an international blackleg.”

― Tariq Ali

“Instead of looking outside of ourselves and counting potential enemies, fasting summons us to turn our glance inward, and to take the measure of our greatest challenge: the self, the ego, in our own eyes and as others see us.”

― Tariq Ramadan

“It’s easy to forget history or give it a cliff notes. The cliff notes of history. But mainly, so much of what happens in ‘Eyes on the Prize’ happened in Jackson, Mississippi. Jackson, Mississippi isn’t really known for any other touchstone to the movement, other than Medgar Evers being killed. There were sit-ins and riots and atrocities.”

“Reality seems so simple. We just open our eyes and there it is. But that doesn’t mean it is simple.”

― Teller

“’The Cosby Show’ changed America’s opinion on so many different topics and opened so many people’s eyes, and so you really learned immediately the power of what you were doing, that there was a power in portraying a role, and you were made aware of the effect that it could have on people, so it does raise the bar.”

― Tempestt Bledsoe

“I film quite a bit of footage, then edit. Changes before your eyes, things you can do and things you can’t. My attitude is always ‘let it keep rolling.’”

“One Roman Catholic School I will never forget. They sang a song to receive me. Part of the words were, ‘Thank you, Lord, for giving us Terry.’ It was beautiful; it really brought tears to my eyes.”

― Terry Fox

“Evolution was far more thrilling to me than the biblical account. Who would not rather be a rising ape than a falling angel? To my juvenile eyes, Darwin was proved true every day. It doesn’t take much to make us flip back into monkeys again.”

― Terry Pratchett

“It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It’s called living.”

“When you read, I’m sure you don’t realize that your eyes are going backwards and forwards and to this place and that place. Mine don’t do that.”

― Terry Pratchett

“My kids are my No. 1 priority. They’re the light in my everyday life. The sunshine. The miracle. Those eyes. Those smiles. At the same time, I have an extended, amazing family that is my audience. All these people have been with me for such a long time. I have these two responsibilities.”

― Thalia

“Tell a story with your eyes when you face the camera – it makes all the difference. My best tip for making skin look good in photographs is to go easy on the make-up. You don’t want it to look heavy and mask-like.”

“Eyes so transparent that through them the soul is seen.”

― Theophile Gautier

“It is quite widely known that I like shoes. This is not something that defines me as either a woman or a politician, but it has come to define me in the eyes of the newspapers. I wore a pair of leopard-print kitten heels to a Conservative Party Conference a few years ago and the papers have continued to focus on my feet ever since.”

― Theresa May

“I’d watch Edwin van der Sar and try and steal things with my eyes from how he played, because he wasn’t all muscles and was a similar build to me.”

― Thibaut Courtois

“Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay.

“I do enjoy a bit of the fantasy world that anime provides, but at the same time, I need the reality in it. I’m very much a stickler about the actual animation. I’m not into the cutesy, stereotypical animation with big eyes and a small chin. That annoys the hell out of me.”

― Thundercat

“Sometimes, I can be crying my eyes out, wanting to die, and then I’ll walk by a mirror and see myself and just bust out laughing.”

― Tierra Whack

“I did this movie called ‘Their Eyes Were Watching God,’ and I was an extra, and it was a movie that Oprah was producing. She had walked by, and I was making all the other extras laugh, and she said, ‘You’re a very funny young lady.’ I was like, ‘Eeeee!’”

― Tiffany Haddish

“As I grew older, I realised that Bruce Lee was an actor first and a martial artist second. If he wasn’t a convincing actor and didn’t have the emotion in his eyes before delivering a kick or a punch, it wouldn’t have made that much of an impact.”

― Tiger Shroff

“If you’re with me, you’ll know if I want to kiss you or not. There will be no question. When it comes to that stuff, I’m pretty bold with the eyes.”

― Tika Sumpter

“The human eye has long fascinated lovers, artists and physicians. The ancient Greeks dissected eyes, but struggled to understand how they worked, unclear as to whether they received or emanated light.”

― Tim Birkhead

“Compared with mammals, birds have relatively large eyes. In simple terms, a bigger eye means better vision, and excellent vision is essential for avoiding collisions in flight, or for capturing fast-moving or camouflaged prey. Birds’ eyes, however, are deceptive – they are bigger than they look.”

― Tim Birkhead

“I wanted to know what it would be like to get on a horse and ride all the way west to Europe and take a look back at my own culture through the eyes of a nomad.”

― Tim Cope

“I have scary eyes. I look like the guy in ‘American History X,’ yes. I remember coming home from school and asking my mum if I could get an eye transplant, and of course she declined.”

― Tim Ferriss

“Place is so important to me. The Midwest is like a ghost in my life. It’s present as I look out the window now. I see Texas, but if I close my eyes and look out the same window, I’m back in my hometown in Worthington, Minnesota, and I cherish those values and that diction.”

― Tim O’Brien

“In a war without aim, you tend not to aim. You close your eyes, close your heart. The consequences become hit or miss in the most literal sense.”

― Tim O’Brien

“While the willingness of the ancient Greeks to sacrifice their lives for glory brings tears to my eyes, I cannot ultimately condone the choice of Achilles.”

― Tim O’Reilly

“There is something about the way I photograph. People often say, ‘Are you cross with me?’ My eyes can look sort of… like a wall.”

― Tim Pigott-Smith

“If you have suffered from trauma, one of the most healing things that can happen to you is being seen. Being seen doesn’t have to mean that someone actually lays their eyes on you, although that certainly helps.”

― Timothy Morton

“Animal abuse is rampant in the U.S., right under everyone’s eyes, for the entertainment of the public. The brutal confinement and pain of training methods of wild animals in the circus, the aquatic and theatrical shows, leads to retaliation by the animals. Eventually they find the right time to strike out, and they will.”

― Tippi Hedren

“There is this miraculous thing I heard Hugh Grant talking about – the thing about screen acting is that you can read people’s thoughts. You are trying to register something inside and usually the eyes in cinema are where you will register that.”

“I think I had only been working nine months when I got ‘Star Trek,’ and it was huge. It was very overwhelming. So that opened my eyes a bit at an early age, kind of how not be frightened when walking into a responsibility of something like that.”

― Tom Hardy

“The politicians of New York have everything that is necessary to make proper decisions and they will have to live with what happens afterwards. The worst scenario is the politicians covering their eyes and turning it over to the FBI.”

― Tom Hayden

“It was difficult being a neutral broadcaster – in the people’s eyes – because of my association with the Celtics.”

― Tom Heinsohn

“I don’t really distinguish between sympathy and honesty when I’m writing. The two go together – I’m interested in inhabiting my characters, seeing the world through their eyes.”

― Tom Perrotta

“’The Secret Agent’ remains the most brilliant novelistic study of terrorism as viewed from the blood-spattered outside. But ‘Under Western Eyes’ dares to leap inside – not only into the terrorist mind, but also into the troubled zone that divides West from East, ‘the autocracy in mystic vestments.’”

― Tom Reiss

“In the period before the arrival of Mrs. Thatcher, politics had been in such low esteem. Everything was so hedged, so mealy-mouthed. Then along came this woman who seemed to have no manners at all and said exactly what she thought. Everyone’s eyes were popping and their jaws were dropping, and I really enjoyed that.”

― Tom Stoppard

“Radical Islam’s principles are out there for all to see if they open their eyes. But what are our principles? In truth, they are up for grabs.”

― Tom Tancredo

“Audiences have become so much more sophisticated, and they’re looking for different eyes and different ways to tell a story. And ‘Scandal’ certainly gives us the freedom to take those chances.”

― Tom Verica

“Sometimes my life opened its eyes in the dark. A feeling as if crowds drew through the streets in blindness and anxiety on the way towards a miracle, while I invisibly remain standing.”

― Tomas Transtromer

“In a way, ‘On the Road’s greatest victory is that nobody’s eyes will be opened any longer by reading it; the last time I met any young people who were actually ‘on the road’ was when I covered Occupy St. Louis. Those few, dirty kids were fighting a battle even they couldn’t articulate.”

― Tony D’Souza

“What did you have the potential to do? And if you came close to that, if you maximized that, then you were a success in God’s eyes. So many of us do things that the world would say is successful, but we have so much more potential.”

― Tony Dungy

“Every four years, the eyes of America become riveted on the national election returns. But God’s first concern during any political season is not the same as our first concern – it is not about what is happening, or going to happen, in the White House. God’s first concern is what is happening, or not happening, in His house.”

― Tony Evans

“The Greek tragic mask is one of my main metaphors for the role of the poet. The eyes of the tragic mask are always open to witness even the worst, and the mouth is always open to make poetry from it. Neither ever close.”

― Tracy Morgan

“When I was 25, people used to say to me that having kids would change you, and I’d roll my eyes.”

― Trent Reznor

“I’ve attended many concerts where I felt let down and I was wishing it would be something else. Not that it’s their duty to please me, but at the same time, I think a lot about what it’s like through the eyes of the consumer, the fan. I want not to pander to the audience, but to be aware of them.”

― Trent Reznor

“I really don’t think art is good at answering questions. It’s much better at posing questions – and even better at simply asking people to open their eyes.”

― Trevor Paglen

“I don’t really do glasses. It’s a good look, but I’m not big on wearing clear glasses for fashion. And I don’t wear too many shades because my fans love to see my eyes.”

― Trey Songz

“I was about 14 when I became a Christian. I had been going to youth group, and I’d heard the Gospel preached, and then suddenly it all started to click. God opened my eyes to see Jesus for who He really was. After I trusted Christ, the Lord changed my entire perspective on everything.”

“When I walked in on ‘Drag Race’ and saw Katya, I had no idea she was gonna be funny, because she was stunning. She had this perfect red lip, I remember looking into her eyes and being like, ‘This is a woman!’ Then she was really funny. She kind of presents normal, and it’s a one-two punch with the comedy.”

― Trixie Mattel

“I used to do my own make-up. I used to have this doll that had those big eyelashes on the top and bottom, and I think I copied her when I was doing my eyes, putting false eyelashes on the bottom as well as the top. So I came up with that look myself.”

― Twiggy

“I have never had a facial in my life. I use a facewash, a sunblock, and then I am set, with some kohl pencil around my eyes.”

― Twinkle Khanna

“I was embarrassed when a businessman friend asked, ‘What’s the yearly budget of your talk show? What’s the per-episode budget?’ And I looked at him with these blank, typical-model eyes and said, ‘I don’t know.’ I call myself a businesswoman, and I don’t know that?”

― Tyra Banks

“On ‘America’s Top Model,’ I’ve always told my girls to smile with their eyes. We call it ‘smizing.’ Over the years, it’s actually become part of pop culture. I would be walking down the street, and girls would say, ‘Smize!’”

“My eyes aren’t special, my nose isn’t special, my mouth isn’t special.”

― Valerie Bertinelli

“When you are in local government, you are on the ground, and you are looking into the eyes and hearts of the people you are there to serve. It teaches you to listen; it teaches you to be expansive in the people with whom you talk to, and I think that that engagement gives you political judgment.”

― Victor Cruz

“When a woman is talking to you, listen to what she says with her eyes.”

― Victor Hugo

“Love, in the eyes of the world, is either a carnal appetite or a vague fancy, which possession extinguishes or absence destroys. That is why it is commonly said, with a strange abuse of words, that passion does not endure.”

― Victor Hugo

“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.”

― Victor Hugo

“Strange to say, the luminous world is the invisible world; the luminous world is that which we do not see. Our eyes of flesh see only night.”

― Victor Hugo

― Victoria Abril

“I have these big brown eyes, so ever since I was a baby, you could tell what I was feeling and thinking based on my eyes.”

― Victoria Arlen

“Nature made your eyebrows like that for a reason. I don’t know the reason. Some people say it’s to do with keeping rain out of monkeys’ eyes. Whatever. The point is, if you try to redesign your eyebrows with tweezers and pens, it will look terrible.”

― Victoria Coren Mitchell

“Insomniacs will be familiar with that disastrous moment as you lie there in the dark, with your eyes shut, when you think, ‘What does my brain actually have to do to make me become asleep? What is the difference between that state and this? Why is the weird, invisible change not happening tonight?’”

― Victoria Coren Mitchell

“Once, when I was driving my bike with my helmet on, two girls recognized me by just looking at my eyes.”

― Vijay Sethupathi

“The first five minutes in Gramacho is really overwhelming because all of your senses are being attacked. Visually, too, because your eyes move and see fragments of things you recognize, but not quite, so it’s very artistic. Your eyes are moving, then there’s the smell, and the noise is unbearable.”

― Vik Muniz

“A very beautiful honey blonde, Sharon Tate, looked into the eyes of the man who the evidence shows just four and a half months later would order her tragic and violent death.”

“Many players win the league for the first time, and they come back, and it’s something you have to feel, to see in their eyes if things have changed or not.”

“In the eyes of the Catholic Church, abortion is a tragedy. Our principle objective must be to try and win greater sympathy for that perspective and for the value of human life from its beginnings.”

― Vincent Nichols

“One of the things I regret is that too often in our society a person’s whole identity is shaped by their sexuality, or by their sexual orientation. In good Catholic eyes, a person’s sexual orientation does not matter.”

― Vincent Nichols

“A lot of people say, ‘I always knew Lucky Luciano as a very smooth, very elegant, very powerful man.’ All the accounts of him as an older man were that he was very genteel but he still had the look of smothered violence behind his eyes.”

― Vincent Piazza

“I think all of the directors I’ve worked with are mostly curious about the time I had on ‘Eyes Wide Shut.’ They really just want to know about it. They’re all fans of Kubrick.”

― Vinessa Shaw

“It’s a dangerous world, man. You’ve gotta keep your eyes and ears peeled and be on the alert all the time.”

― Vinnie Paul

“Your internal dialogue has got to be different from what you say. And, you know, in film, hopefully that registers and speaks volumes. It’s always the unspoken word and what’s happening behind someone’s eyes that makes it so rich.”

― Viola Davis

“Tyler Perry’s ‘Madea Goes to Jail!’ Which, I have to tell you, of everything that I’ve ever done in my career, that’s the only thing that’s perked up the ears of my nieces and nephews. That is it, that’s done it for them. That made me a bona fide star in their eyes!”

― Viola Davis

“At the age of five, of six, at the age of seven, I used to begin weeping sometimes without warning, simply for the sake of weeping, my eyes open wide to the sun, to the flowers… I wanted to feel an immense grief inside me, and it came.”

“Fashion and music are two great artistic forms that can be molded by the youth culture – our taste and our passion for evolving things in our limited time on earth allows us to look at things with fresh eyes.”

― Virgil Abloh

“Who can blind lover’s eyes?”

“The eyes of others our prisons; their thoughts our cages.”

― Virginia Woolf

“I don’t often wear mascara in real life, but on-set or backstage, if I’m crying or even if my eyes get watery, I get a Q-Tip, and I wet it with a few drops of water. Then I go lash by lash and clean it up.”

“It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity.”

― W. E. B. Du Bois

“I once did a film in which I was being chased by wolves. I had a scene where the Alpha of the pack leapt on the hood of my car and stared me down through the windshield. I will never forget staring into those eyes; this wasn’t a dog – not even a tough, bad-ass dog – no, this was a wolf.”

― W. Earl Brown

“People’s ability to forget what they do not want to know, to overlook what is before their eyes, was seldom put to the test better than in Germany at that time.”

“What our eyes behold may well be the text of life but one’s meditations on the text and the disclosures of these meditations are no less a part of the structure of reality.”

― Wallace Stevens

“Blinking is some way of tabulating – a kind of carriage return, click, or save to disk – that helps the process of ‘Okay, now change the subject.’ Every time you move your eyes, there’s an interruption in the visual field – you go momentarily blind when your eyeballs are moving.”

― Walter Murch

“The half hour between waking and rising has all my life proved propitious to any task which was exercising my invention… It was always when I first opened my eyes that the desired ideas thronged upon me.”

“Dude, I turn into a six-year-old when I come to Disneyland. It’s amazing. My eyes glass over and my blood pressure goes down. I’m just like everybody else. I turn into a big kid when I come here. It’s the happiest place on earth, right?”

― Warren Spector

“Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.”

“Lend your ears to music, open your eyes to painting, and… stop thinking! Just ask yourself whether the work has enabled you to ‘walk about’ into a hitherto unknown world. If the answer is yes, what more do you want?”

― Wassily Kandinsky

“I couldn’t beat people with my strength; I don’t have a hard shot; I’m not the quickest skater in the league. My eyes and my mind have to do most of the work.”

― Wayne Rogers

“If you are interested in writing, get out and live your life! Do a lot. See a lot. Keep your eyes and ears open. Pay attention to the different ways people speak. Read lots of different kinds of books. And then try writing in different voices and styles – don’t be afraid to experiment.”

― Wesley Morris

“I wrote a ‘Lenny Letter’ on a whim, and it felt indulgent, but people came up to me with tears in their eyes saying, ‘Thank you.’ There’s so much shame about mental illness in our country and so many stereotypes about women being ‘crazy’ or ‘psycho.’”

― Whitney Cummings

“I don’t want to look at myself – ever. All I see is that my face is a problem. It’s asymmetrical. I get terrible bags under my eyes.”

― Whitney Cummings

“My children, as long as you live, the shadow of the Hiss Case will brush you. In every pair of eyes that rests on you, you will see pass, like a cloud passing behind a woods in winter, the memory of your father – dissembled in friendly eyes, lurking in unfriendly eyes.”

― Whittaker Chambers

“I’m fighting the label of ‘Black’ actress simply because it’s very limiting in people’s eyes, especially people who are making movies.”

― Whoopi Goldberg

“I write my books in my head, and not in a specific study with a view. The view is from my inner eyes.”

― Wilbur Smith

“I used to own an island in the Seychelles and had a big boat there and one day I came across some Somali pirates who were passing by on their way to re-provision their boat. They didn’t even acknowledge me – which is unheard of among sailors – and it was like looking into the eyes of a black mamba.”

― Wilbur Smith

“To attempt this would be like seeing without eyes or directing the gaze of knowledge behind one’s own eye. Modern science can acknowledge no other than this epistemological stand-point.”

― Wilhelm Dilthey

“What’s the fun in approaching something closed-minded? I’m very specific; if dialogue is too on-the-nose, or there’s a lot of telling and not showing, I’ll talk to my manager and let them know the problems I have with it. But, I always go in with fresh eyes. The first pass just needs to be about figuring out little things here and there.”

― Will Rothhaar

“Life, it is true, can be grasped in all its confused futility merely by opening one’s eyes and sitting passively, a spectator on the stands of history – but to understand the social processes and conflicts, the interplay between individual and group, even the physicality of human experience, we have need of small-scale models.”

― Will Self

“If we bought everything on the Internet, our eyes and mouths and nostrils would probably begin to film over with a tegument – one initially tissue-thin and capable of being removed each morning, but which gradually thickened and hardened until we were imprisoned in our own tiny minds.”

― Will Self

“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.”

“Adapting a Judy Blume book is something I really wanted to do, and you couldn’t grow up in the ’90s without knowing about ‘Tiger Eyes’ and reading it. It should’ve been assigned to all teenage girls.”

― Willa Holland

“All I need is my brains, my eyes and my personality, for better or for worse.”

― William Albert Allard

“For children to take morality seriously they must be in the presence of adults who take morality seriously. And with their own eyes they must see adults take morality seriously.”

― William Bennett
