One of the most wonderful things in nature is a glance; it transcends speech; it is the bodily symbol of identity.

Say, what other metre is it
  Than the meeting of the eyes?
    Nature poureth into nature
      Through the channels of that feature
        Riding on the ray of sight,
          Fleeter far than whirlwinds go,
            Or for service, or delight,
              Hearts to hearts their meaning show.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Some eyes threaten like a loaded and levelled pistol, and others are as insulting as hissing or kicking; some have no more expression than blueberries, while others are as deep as a well which you can fall into.

The eyes indicate the antiquity of the soul.

When a man speaks the truth in the spirit of truth, his eye is as clear as the heavens. When he has base ends, and speaks falsely, the eye is muddy, and sometimes asquint.

An eye can threaten like a loaded and levelled gun, or can insult like hissing or kicking; or, in its altered mood, by beams of kindness, it can make the heart dance with joy.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson,
        Conduct of Life--Behavior

Eyes are bold as lions,--roving, running, leaping, here and there, far and near. They speak all languages. They wait for no introduction; they are no Englishmen; ask no leave of age or rank; they respect neither property nor riches, neither learning nor power, nor virtue, nor sex, but intrude, and come again, and go through and through you in a moment of time. What inundation of life and thought is discharged from one soul into another through them!
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson,
        Conduct of Life--Behavior
