Eyes

Famous quotes containing the word eyes:

    Mrs. Van Hopper: Most girls would give their eyes for a chance to see Monte.
    Maxim de Winter: Wouldn’t that rather defeat the purpose?
    Robert E. Sherwood (1896–1955)

    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 (b. 1913)

    In the learned journal, in the influential newspaper, I discern no form; only some irresponsible shadow; oftener some monied corporation, or some dangler, who hopes, in the mask and robes of his paragraph, to pass for somebody. But through every clause and part of speech of the right book I meet the eyes of the most determined men; his force and terror inundate every word: the commas and dashes are alive; so that the writing is athletic and nimble,—can go far and live long.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
