Tears are nature’s lotion for the eyes. The eyes see better for being washed by them.
—Christian Nestell Bovee (1820–1904) American Writer, Aphorist
Fear has big eyes.
If you weep for all the sorrows in this world, in the end you will have no eyes.
A beautiful eye makes silence eloquent, a kind eye makes contradiction an assent, an enraged eye makes beauty deformed. This little member gives life to every other part about us; and I believe the story of Argus implies no more than that the eye is in every part; that is to say, every other part would be mutilated were not its force represented more by the eye than even by itself.
—Joseph Addison (1672–1719) English Essayist, Poet, Playwright, Politician
The dead open the eyes of the living.
Eyes lie if you ever look into them for the character of the person.
—Stevie Wonder (b.1950) American Singer, Songwriter
The eye is easily frightened.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–82) American Philosopher
Seeing is poison for the eyes.
Absence is a foe to love; away from the eyes, away from the heart.
Of all the senses, sight must be the most delightful.
—Helen Keller (1880–1968) American Author
Eyes, that displaces The neighbor diamond, and out-faces That sun-shine by their own sweet graces.
—Richard Crashaw (c.1613–1649) English Religious Poet
In her eyes a thought Grew sweeter and sweeter, deepening like the dawn, A mystical forewarning.
—Thomas Bailey Aldrich (1836–1907) American Writer, Poet, Critic, Editor
It is better to trust the eyes rather than the ears.
The eyes are the mirror of the soul
If you are dancing with your rivals, don’t close your eyes.
Tears come more often from the eyes than from the heart.
Who are you going to believe, me or your own eyes?
—Groucho Marx (1890–1977) American Actor, Comedian, Singer
Only through the eyes of others can we really see our own faults.
Let him speak who has seen with his eyes.
Better to be guilty in the eyes of men than in the eyes of God.
Blue eyes say, Love me or I die; black eyes say, Love me or I kill thee.
In our eyes the neighbor’s chicken is a goose.
If the eyes didn’t see, the hands wouldn’t take.
A beetle is a beauty in the eyes of his mother.
An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.
—Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869–1948) Indian Hindu Political leader
The eyes of the lord are in every place seeing the evil and the good.
—The Holy Bible Scripture in the Christian Faith
He had but one eye and the pocket of prejudice runs in favor of two.
—Charles Dickens (1812–70) English Novelist
Not in mine eyes alone in Paradise.

Keep your mouth shut and your eyes open.
There are whole veins of diamonds in thine eyes, Might furnish crowns for all the Queens of earth.
—Philip James Bailey (1816–1902) English Poet
