There are mystically in our faces certain characters which
carry in them the motto of our souls, wherein he that cannot
read A, B, C may read our natures.
Sir Thomas Browne
An eye can threaten like a loaded and levelled gun,
or it can insult like hissing or kicking; or,
in its altered mood, by beams of kindness,
it can make the heart dance for joy....
One of the most wonderful things in nature
is a glance of the eye;it transcends speech;
it is the bodily symbol of identity.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
