Our eyes have been inspiring authors and philosophers for thousands of years. Some claim they can tell quite a bit about a person just by looking into their eyes, even peering into the depths of their soul. But we’ll leave all the deep talk to the experts.

“The soul, fortunately, has an interpreter – often an unconscious but still a faithful interpreter – in the eye.”

― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“The face is the mirror of the mind, and eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart.“

—St. Jerome

“For she had eyes and chose me.”

― William Shakespeare, Othello

“The face is a picture of the mind with the eyes as its interpreter.”

― Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Almost nothing need be said when you have eyes.”

― Tarjei Vesaas, The Boat in the Evening

“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again.”

—Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

“Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms.”

—Alfred Hitchcock

“The light, that lies In woman’s eyes, Has been my heart’s undoing.”

—Thomas More

“Men trust their ears less than their eyes.”


“Eyes lie if you ever look into them for the character of the person.”

—Stevie Wonder

“Who can blind lover’s eyes?”


“Curiosity is gluttony. To see is to devour.”

― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
