The Girl With Many Eyes
One day in the park
I had quite a surprise.
I met a girl
who had many eyes.
She was really quite pretty
(and also quite shocking!)
and I noticed she had a mouth,
so we ended up talking.
We talked about flowers,
and her poetry classes,
and the problems she’d have
if she ever wore glasses.
It’s great to know a girl
who has so many eyes,
but you really get wet
when she breaks down and cries.
—- Tim Burton
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
I think the eyes flirt most. There are so many ways to use them.
The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.
When a woman is talking to you, listen to what she says with her eyes.
Men are born with two eyes, but with one tongue, in order that they should see twice as much as they say.
—-Charles Caleb Colton
When you are old and gray and full of sleep, and nodding by the fire, take down this book and slowly read, and dream of the soft look your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep.
—-William Butler Yeats
The hardest thing to see is what is in front of your eyes.
—-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Wicked thoughts and worthless efforts gradually set their mark on the face, especially the eyes.
So if you’re down on your luck, I know you all sympathize
Find a girl with far away eyes
And if you’re downright disgusted
And life ain’t worth a dime
Get a girl with far away eyes
—-Mick Jagger/Keith Richards
