Eye - Quotes


What the eye doesn`t see and the mind doesn`t know, doesn`t exist.

D. H. Lawrence

Discovery often means simply the uncovering of something which has always been there but was hidden from the eye by the blinkers of habit.

Arthur Koestler

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

Gilbert Keith Chesterton

I feel my heart glow with an enthusiasm which elevates me to heaven, for nothing contributes so much to tranquillize the mind as a steady purpose - a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.

Mary Shelley

If you build a person without any bones in him he may look fair enough to the eye, but he will be limber and cannot stand up; and I consider that evidence is the bones of an opinion.

Mark Twain

Math is like water. It has a lot of difficult theories, of course, but its basic logic is very simple. Just as water flows from high to low over the shortest possible distance, figures can only flow in one direction. You just have to keep your eye on them for the route to reveal itself. That’s all it takes. You don’t have to do a thing. Just concentrate your attention and keep your eyes open, and the figures make everything clear to you. In this whole, wide world, the only thing that treats me so kindly is math.

Haruki Murakami

The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason.

Benjamin Franklin

To women who please me only by their faces I am the very devil when I find out they have neither souls nor hearts when they open to me a perspective of flatness, triviality, and perhaps imbecility, coarseness, and ill-temper: but to the clear eye and eloquent tongue, to the soul made of fire, and the character that bends but does not break - at once supple and stable, tractable and consistent - I am ever tender and true.

Charlotte Bronte

Electricity is actually made up of extremely tiny particles called electrons, that you cannot see with the naked eye unless you have been drinking.

Dave Barry

The world is so empty if we think of it just as a collection of mountains, rivers and cities; but to find someone somewhere who sees eye to eye with us, someone with whom we can continue to commune in silence, makes the whole world into a populated garden.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.

Ivan Panin

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. What is essential is invisible to the eye.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The mind of a bigot is like the pupil of the eye. The more light you shine on it, the more it will contract.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

That which your heart disguises
open your eyes and see;
that which your eye surmises
let your heart wait to be.

Attila József

All looks yellow to the jaundiced eye.

Alexander Pope
