Eyes of gentianellas azure,
  Staring, winking at the skies.

Her eye (I am very fond of handsome eyes),
  Was large and dark, suppressing half its fire
    Until she spoke, then through its soft disguise
      Flash'd an expression more of pride than ire,
        And love than either; and there would arise,
          A something in them which was not desire,
            But would have been, perhaps, but for the soul,
              Which struggled through and chasten'd down the whole.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

In woman's eye the unanswerable tear.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

  Soft as her clime, and sunny as her skies.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Beppo (st. 45)

Her eye (I'm very fond of handsome eyes)
  Was large and dark, suppressing half its fire
    Until she spoke, then through its soft disguise
      Flash'd an expression more of pride than ire,
        And love than either; and there would arise,
          A something in them which was not desire,
            But would have been, perhaps, but for the soul,
              Which struggled through and chansten'd down the whole.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto I, st. 60)

With eyes that look'd into the very soul--

        Hist. of the French Revolution
         (vol. I, p. 5), (People's ed.)

There are eyes half defiant,
  Half meek and compliant;

This little member can behold the earth, and in a moment view things as high as heaven.
      - Stephen Charnock

What a curious workmanship is that of the eye, which is in the body, as the sun in the world; set in the head as in a watch-tower, having the softest nerves for receiving the greater multitude of spirits necessary for the act of vision!
