Why has not man a microscopic eye?
  For this plain reason, Man is not a Fly.
    Say, what the use, were finer optics giv'n,
      T' inspect a mite, not comprehend the heav'n?
      - Alexander Pope, Essay on Man
         (ep. I, l. 193)

Bright as the sun her eyes the gazers strike,
  And, like the sun, they shine on all alike.
      - Alexander Pope, Rape of the Lock
         (canto II, l. 13)

The eye is the window of the soul, the mouth the door. The intellect, the will, are seen in the eye; the emotions, sensibilities, and affections, in the mouth. The animals look for man's intentions right into his eyes. Even a rat, when you hunt him and bring him to bay, looks you in the eye.
      - Hiram Powers

The eyes are the pioneers that first announce the soft tale of love.
      - Sextus Aurelius Propertius

Dark eyes are dearer far
  Than those that mock the hyacinthine bell.
      - John Hamilton Reynolds, Sonnet

Women read each other at a single glance.
      - Antoine de Rivarol, Comte de Rivarol

The eye is continually influenced by what it cannot detect; nay, it is not going too far, to say that it is most influenced by what it detects least. Let the painter define, if he can, the variations of lines on which depend the change of expression in the human countenance.
      - John Ruskin

A woman with a hazel eye never elopes from her husband, never chats scandal, never finds fault, never talks too much nor too little--always is an entertaining, intellectual, agreeable and lovely creature.
      - Frederick Saunders

Whatever of goodness emanates from the soul, gathers its soft halo in the eyes; and if the heart be a lurking place of crime, the eyes are sure to betray the secret. A beautiful eye makes silence eloquent, a kind eye makes contradiction assent, an enraged eye makes beauty a deformity; so you see, forsooth, the little organ plays no inconsiderable, if not a dominant, part.
      - Frederick Saunders

O, the eye's light is a noble gift of heaven! All beings live from light; each fair created thing, the very plants, turn with a joyful transport to the light.
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller

His eyebrow dark, and eye of fire, showed spirit proud, and prompt to ire.
      - Sir Walter Scott

Eyes will not see when the heart wishes them to be blind. Desire conceals truth as darkness does the earth.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

A lover's eyes will gaze an eagle blind.
      - William Shakespeare

An eye like Mars, to threaten or command.
      - William Shakespeare

But her's, which through the crystal tears gave light,
  Shone like the moon in water seen by night.
      - William Shakespeare

Eyes and ears, two traded pilots 'twixt the dangerous shores of will and judgment.
      - William Shakespeare

Faster than his tongue did make offense, his eye did heal it up.
      - William Shakespeare

Her eye in heaven
  Would through the airy region stream so bright,
    That birds would sing, and think it were not night.
      - William Shakespeare

Sometimes from her eyes I did receive fair speechless messages.
      - William Shakespeare

Stabbed with a white wench's black eye.
      - William Shakespeare

The eye sees not itself
  But by reflection, by some other things.
      - William Shakespeare

The eyes of women are Promethean fires.
      - William Shakespeare

What an eye she has! methinks it sounds a parley of provocation.
      - William Shakespeare

Where is any author in the world teaches such beauty as a woman's eye?
      - William Shakespeare

Windows, white and azure-laced with blue of heaven's own tinct.
      - William Shakespeare
