Famous quotes containing the word eyes:

    I have, indeed, even omitted facts, which, on account of their singularity, must in the eyes of some have appeared to border on the marvelous. But in the forests of South America such extraordinary realities are to be found, that there is assuredly no need to have recourse to fiction or the least exaggeration.
    —J.G. (John Gabriel)

    I might show facts as plain as day:
    But, since your eyes are blind, you’d say,
    “Where? What?” and turn away.
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    ‘Tis certain, greatness, once fallen out with fortune,
    Must fall out with men too. What the declined is,
    He shall as soon read in the eyes of others
    As feel in his own fall.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
