I don't understand executives that pit women against each other, the fact that they brought in 'Body of Proof,' Dana Delaney is a friend of mine, and the two of us were just rolling our eyes, it's like, of course, you finally have two great female leads and you're going to put us on against each other. -Julianna Margulies

Mark Helprin and Lawrence Durrell, both of whom write fat and florid novels that appall me now but opened my eyes to the power of fiction when I was in my 20s. -Kevin Patterson

Bring out the eyes. -Vidal Sassoon

I don't want to be ignorant in my daughter's eyes. -Gretchen Wilson

I feel a social responsibility. We need to open people's eyes. There is a lack of education in Ethiopia. -Haile Gebrselassie

My kids are one, three, five and eight, and we are all horsey. The kids have got their ponies and can ride. Our foundation mare is special to our hearts. She was one of my first ever horses.

Work hard. Laugh when you feel like crying. Keep an open mind, open eyes and an open spirit. -Rachael Ray

I measure in my palm and use my eyes to estimate amounts; a tablespoon is a full palm of dried spices. -Rachael Ray

I'm a sensitive guy; I respond to things that make my eyes well up a little bit, or make me root for people. I find the human condition interesting. -Fred Durst

But we're born as children and we look at the world with open eyes… And we don't judge and we don't betray. We're not jealous. We're not envious. We're not even weary, which is a danger also as kids. They have to learn a certain amount of awareness. -Colin Farrell

I want people to be inspired that I've always strived for excellence and I've always gone beyond what anybody ever thought I could do, what I thought I myself could do. And I've allowed myself to be inspired, kept my eyes open and my senses open to inspiration around me. -Clara Hughes

I think one of the reasons that we like conspiracy theories is I think that we like to feel like there is a group of people who are so smart and powerful that they can pull the wool over an entire country or in fact even an entire world's eyes. That certainly makes us feel like somehow we're protected, even if it's not in our best interest. -Jason Ritter

Most food you drop is still perfectly edible. If it was in your eyesight the whole time, you can pick it up and eat it. -Mehmet Oz

There's a TV element to everything in my eyes. -Ryan Seacrest

I'm flatchested, I'm short, I'm brunette, I have droopy eyes, and so people have a hard time casting me as a 'beauty.' -Selma Blair

I like cast iron coated with enamel for longevity and forgiveness if I happen to take my eyes off the prize while pouring Chianti. -Mario Batali

Close your eyes and place your finger on a map. Wherever it lands, that's the theme of the evening. So many times we settle for routine dishes. This forces you to try new cuisines. -Mario Batali

I think I had only been working nine months when I got 'Star Trek,' and it was huge. It was very overwhelming. So that opened my eyes a bit at an early age, kind of how not be frightened when walking into a responsibility of something like that. -Tom Hardy

Going to prison is like dying with your eyes open. -Bernard Kerik

When I was in high school I got involved in the fringe theater scene in Chicago, and I met some openly gay people. I could see that it got better, that they were happy and loved and supported. I saw with my own eyes that it got better. -Dan Savage

It is quite unsettling looking into someone's eyes, especially when you aren't used to it. -Mike May

The greatest gift is our own eyes, sense of smell, and abilities to deduce. -Patricia Cornwell

I think to be – for me to be an American is – you know, it's one of the greatest things in the world for – you know, for me just because I've been able to grow up with everything. The freedom. You know, in my eyes this is the greatest country in the world. -Michael Phelps

No economic system is perfect. But the American Free Enterprise system has empowered millions of people in the past. I know, because I saw it with my own eyes. -Marco Rubio

The thing that makes reading and writing suspect in the eyes of the market economy is that it's not corrupted. -Richard Powers

Sometimes we think of a creature like a person in a suit, but then you have limitations of two eyes and two legs – they have to see and breathe. I got more into puppetry because it offered more possibilities. -Rick Baker

In baseball you train the whole body, except for the hip and eyes. -Rickey Henderson

What could make my life better? Oh, if I could only find that magic bottle that lets you never have to sleep. I have so much stuff I wanna do, but… That six or seven hours you have to be in bed with your eyes closed. What a waste! -Robert Rodriguez

Actually, 3D is really the most normal thing because it's how those of us with two eyes usually see the world. TVs are the unusual things in 2D! -Shigeru Miyamoto

When I close my eyes to draw I always think Chicago in 1975. -Daniel Clowes

I'm entirely interested in people, and also other creatures and beings, but especially in people, and I tend to read them by emotional field more than anything.

I wanted to be a bus driver when I was a kid. I look at bus driving through the eyes of a little boy. I see it as glamorous. -Jim Lehrer

The mind is a machine that is constantly asking: What would I prefer? Close your eyes, refuse to move, and watch what your mind does. What it does is become discontent with that-which-is. A desire arises, you satisfy that desire, and another arises in its place. -George Saunders

A lot of people are realizing they had the wool pulled over their eyes by Obama. -Clint Eastwood

My tactic is to make eyes at someone. -Carly Rae Jepsen

For many people, extended reading sessions on an LCD display cause eyestrain. -Jeff Bezos

Well, my type is obviously creative. Creative, with burning eyes and a pretty mouth. -Vanessa Paradis

There are pros and cons of experience. A con is that you can't look at the business with a fresh pair of eyes and as objectively as if you were a new CEO. Fire yourself on a Friday night and come in on Monday morning as if a search firm put you there as a turn-around leader. Can you be objective and make the bold change? -Andrea Jung

I mean, I come from a hippie mentality where I just think to know someone, you need to look into their eyes. Eyes are so important. Until they start melon-balling eyes out, I won't be able to get to know someone another way. -Drew Barrymore

When we take our eyes off the whirl of day-to-day activity and concentrate on honoring Him and following in His way, we find a consistent peace that carries us through both plenty and poverty. -Charles Stanley

I can't even open my eyes underwater. -Jessica Chastain

I couldn't beat people with my strength; I don't have a hard shot; I'm not the quickest skater in the league. My eyes and my mind have to do most of the work. -Wayne Gretzky

United States foreign policy, which includes national security, is literally disintegrating before our eyes. -Rush Limbaugh

I guess I'm just good at playing repressed individuals. I'm lucky because those are often the roles that catch people's eyes. -Damian Lewis

People can tell when you're happy with being you and when you're not. It's only cheesy because it's true. As I've gotten older and grown into my body, I've started realizing that the way you carry yourself and that light coming out of your eyes are the most attractive things about you. -Hayden Panettiere

It would be disingenuous of me to blanket-ly love everything a woman has produced simply to make a statement that we're all in this together. No. We're in Hollywood trying to be competitive, and get numbers, have our eyes on the Nielsens and things like that. -Mindy Kaling

I worked for a lot of candidates, in tough campaigns that lost. Most of my candidates lost until Bill Clinton. There was always a point where you look in their eyes and they knew it was over. And there was never that point with Clinton. He never quit. He never gave up. -Dee Dee Myers

I'm so not scary. I'm a pussycat. But what are you going to do, right? I mean, these cheekbones, and I guess these eyes, and the big nose… this is what my momma and my poppa gave to me, and that's the deal. -Kim Coates

I can't read scripts any more because of the trouble with my eyes. -Judi Dench

I feel very keenly the eyes of the foreign media on our country. And I think a lot of Japanese people feel that things are not working the way they should. When the time comes, I will put myself forward. -Yoshihiko Noda

I'm not handsome in the classical sense. The eyes droop, the mouth is crooked, the teeth aren't straight, the voice sounds like a Mafioso pallbearer, but somehow it all works. -Sylvester Stallone

I see the world through my eyes. It's sometimes a strange world. -Keira Knightley

I'm a mixture of Anglo-Saxon, a bit of Spanish and one-eighth American. I've often wondered if I have an Asiatic ancestor from the East as well because I have deep-set eyes. Make-up artists are constantly trying to shade my eyelids, and I have to point out that I don't have any! -Olivia Williams

Filming is long – you get very tired, and your skin breaks out and you get lumps and bumps. It's easier if you're allowed to have bags under your eyes. -Shirley Henderson

If there are finer beings than German short hairs, I don't know what they are. In their eyes is peace. -Ben Stein

Good fiction creates empathy. A novel takes you somewhere and asks you to look through the eyes of another person, to live another life. -Barbara Kingsolver

I've always seen the world through the eyes of a scientist. I love the predictable outcomes that science gives us, the control over the world that that can render. -Barbara Kingsolver

The day of the daredevil reporter who refuses to see obstacles to getting the truth, and seeing it with his or her own eyes, seems to have died. -Alastair Campbell

Grandchildren have taught me how important the future is. I try to look through their eyes and envision what's in their imagination. What's the world going to look like when they're my age? That really does take a huge imagination. -Richard Lugar

My mother's eyes were large and brown, like my son's, but unlike Sam's, they were always frantic, like a hummingbird who can't quite find the flower but keeps jabbing around. -Anne Lamott

I am going to try to pay attention to the spring. I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees. I am going to close my eyes and listen. -Anne Lamott

I knew people were going to see me see deteriorate before their eyes. -Arlen Specter

You can go into neighborhoods in the United States where people dress a certain way because they don't want to be out of touch, where boys wear pants down to their knees, which nobody has compelled them to do but they pick up the cultural norms, or where girls are improperly dressed by my eyes, but that's what they see in the media. -Hillary Clinton

I think we all suffer from acute blindness at times. Life is a constant journey of trying to open your eyes. I'm just beginning my journey, and my eyes aren't fully open yet. -Olivia Thirlby

When a child comes in, I believe that it's a 'multipersonhood,' and it knows it, its consciousness knows it, and it has a nuclei in the center of its consciousness that is the repository of all experience and all knowledge. And when you look in the eyes of your baby and you feel this sense that they are an old soul, I believe indeed they are. -Shirley MacLaine

This issue of border security is not about, about ethnicity. I sit there on occasion with 10 or 12 sheriffs from my district, many of which are Democrats with last names like Reyes, with last names like Herrera and Lucio. And they are crying out for border security as well. So again, this is not an issue about being anti-Mexican. -Henry Bonilla

That's the way blacks have been encouraged to think: that we got to stick together. You've got a situation today where if a black person says he thinks O.J. Simpson's guilty, other blacks will cut their eyes at him and say, 'You ought to go somewhere and sit down and shut up.' -J. C. Watts

The sharecropper may lower his eyes, but not because he's less of a man. That's just a condition of society that such things exist. -Ernest Gaines

As a member of the audience I don't like it that I can't see what's going on in the eyes and in the face and in the most subtle responses of a performer when I'm more than a few rows back. I find it very frustrating. -Daniel Day-Lewis

Parents are supposed to give the child back to herself with love. If they've got duct tape over their eyes because of narcissism, it doesn't happen. -Jane Fonda

I feel like we have to keep our eyes on the road. Being nostalgic is like taking an offramp and getting a sandwich – and then you get back on the highway. I don't want to be spending the rest of my life at the gas station. -Eddie Vedder

When I had a child, everyone was telling me that I was going to see the world through her eyes, and everything was going to get this nice gloss to it. I kept waiting for that to happen, and thought there was a real problem with me that it wasn't. -Eddie Vedder

In rising financial markets, the world is forever new. The bull or optimist has no eyes for past or present, but only for the future, where streams of revenue play in his imagination. -James Buchan

Like Andy Warhol and unlike God Almighty, Larry King does not presume to judge; all celebrities are equal in his eyes, saints and sinners alike sharing the same 'Love Boat' voyage into the dark beyond, a former sitcom star as deserving of pious send-off as Princess Diana. -James Wolcott

One reason I'm such a wayward prognosticator of rightwing trends is that I'm incapable of blacking out enough neural sectors to see the world through reptilian-brained eyes, a prerequisite for any true channeling of the mean resentments and implanted fears that drive hardcore conservatives. -James Wolcott

Maybe it's because I'm a little naive, but I do like to think that there aren't really very many truly bad people in the world. I think that everybody has their reasons for what they do, and if you really look through their eyes, you could probably understand them. -Stephenie Meyer

I'm hoping that what I am or what I'm not ethnically doesn't limit me in anyone else's eyes. I guarantee you it doesn't in mine. -Wentworth Miller

It is natural for us, as human beings, to look forward. Our eyes naturally look ahead. In this sense, we are made for moving toward a goal. -Daisaku Ikeda

The eyes of a poet discover in each person a unique and irreplaceable humanity. While arrogant intellect seeks to control and manipulate the world, the poetic spirit bows with reverence before its mysteries. -Daisaku Ikeda

As an actor, you have many tools – your body, your voice, your emotions, mentally. In film, you have your eyes because they communicate your thought process. In fact, generally in film, what you don't say is more important than what you say. That's not so much the case for stage. -Hugh Jackman

Animal abuse is rampant in the U.S., right under everyone's eyes, for the entertainment of the public. The brutal confinement and pain of training methods of wild animals in the circus, the aquatic and theatrical shows, leads to retaliation by the animals. Eventually they find the right time to strike out, and they will. -Tippi Hedren

Drawing makes you see things clearer, and clearer and clearer still, until your eyes ache. -David Hockney

I remember times when I was at shows and the person onstage locked eyes with me. And in that moment, everything was right with the world. I think that's part of my job, to create these thousands of moments every night. And for the rest of their life, they can say, 'You guys looked at me,' or 'You sweated on me,' or 'I got your gum.' -Joan Jett

I can just sense some eyes, some people kinda stare a little bit like they recognize me but don't quite know for sure kinda thing. -Victor Cruz

I tried to take heavy metal… and balled it up and chopped it in half and really tried to create a new form of energy. I really tried to re-shape extreme music as I see it through my eyes. -Phil Anselmo

One of the joys of being a grandparent is getting to see the world again through the eyes of a child. -David Suzuki

When you drive, you are doing several things at once. You are using your eyes, ears, hands, your mind. If you have meditated for many years and have reached a lofty height in your meditation, as I have, you can meditate while running and cycling and painting. -Sri Chinmoy

If you take 12 waters from the coconut – not the ones you buy in the store, although that's good – but the fresh coconuts, the little brown ones with the three eyes, if you take 12 of those within 24 hours, your blood will go back to the way it was when you were born. -Dick Gregory

People can drink with their eyes; I can eat with my nose. -Karl Lagerfeld

I loved the idea of seeing the world through a boy's eyes. -Martin Scorsese

So for a long time I closed my eyes to the possibility of America having a white voice. -Robert Plant

It is quite widely known that I like shoes. This is not something that defines me as either a woman or a politician, but it has come to define me in the eyes of the newspapers. I wore a pair of leopard-print kitten heels to a Conservative Party Conference a few years ago and the papers have continued to focus on my feet ever since. -Theresa May

I'm trying to convey to my audience that you really can't judge a book by its cover, and there's more to the universe than you can see with your eyes. -Adam Lambert

I could meet dreadful people and end up seeing the world through their eyes, seeing their frailties, their needs. -V. S. Naipaul

So many people witness atrocities and can't take their eyes away from them, but that doesn't mean they're good. -Adam Levine

I'll close my eyes really, really tight and make you all go away. -Shannon Hoon

Particularly when you're dealing with very high ranking people, you know, you have to get their attention, they are used to, by their rank, of having their own way and doing their own thing and when it's necessary to all work together on something, sometimes you have to hit the mule between the eyes with a two by four to get its attention. -Norman Schwarzkopf

I've always thought of acting as a tool to change society. I watch a lot of actors and I see panic in their eyes because they don't know why they act and I know why I act. Whether I'm a good or a bad actor, I know why I do it. -Andy Serkis

One of the skills you have to master in theater is the ability to make the audience believe that things that aren't there are there – just like when you're acting against CGI. Also, in a theater, the people in the back row can't see the whites of your eyes. Or your lips moving as you deliver dialogue. -David Oyelowo

I want to make movies that pierce people's hearts and touch them in some way, even if it's just for the night while they're in the cinema; in that moment, I want to bring actual tears to their eyes and goosebumps to their skin. -Russell Crowe

We go to the movies to forget about time, to be in a dream state. And it's entertainment, distraction, from the fact that everything is kind of crumbling in front of our eyes. -Christian Marclay

There is a strong tendency to get used to and accept very bad things that would be shocking if seen with fresh eyes. -Ray Dalio

I'm not a tech guy. I'm looking at the technology with the eyes of my customers, normal people's eyes. -Jack Ma

I played on this soccer team, called Hollywood United, and there were a lot of old ex-international pro-players. We played this benefit match at the Rose Bowl, and the crowd streamed in. It's so nerve-wracking to go out into a stadium, feeling a billion eyes upon you when you mess up your touches. That's an overwhelming environment. -Donal Logue

Development is where my heart is focused because eating is the only thing that we do that involves all the senses. We eat with our eyes and our ears and our noses. -Heston Blumenthal

People who say they're not nervous – I would be kind of curious to see how successful you are at what you do and how long you've done it. And what is success in your eyes? Have you separated yourself from everyone else in that craft? Or have you settled amongst the pack? -Randy Johnson

I remember when my daughter, Marina, was born. The second I laid eyes on her, I was in love, and I had never felt that way before. I couldn't believe it. -Matt LeBlanc

I've been asked a lot lately if tennis is clean or not. I don't know any more how you judge whether a sport is clean. If one in 100 players is doping, in my eyes that isn't a clean sport. -Andy Murray

It's a wonderful narrative device to bring someone from the outside and look through his eyes if you want to describe the absurdity and preposterous reality that is accepted amongst the ones who are inside. -Christoph Waltz

I grew up loving actresses or actors who were very classy but who seemed a little bit mysterious because you couldn't grasp what they're really thinking. I mean, Grace Kelly always looked impossibly glamorous, yet you could always see there was something behind her eyes. -Diane Kruger

Everything I see, I now see through a mother's eyes. -Jennifer Hudson

I didn't start singing with my eyes open until I was 19 – that's how shy I was! -Jennifer Hudson

I like to do projects that challenge me, and hopefully in turn challenge the audience, or open your eyes to something you're not aware of. -Mia Wasikowska

I don't mind my eyebrows. They add… something to me. I wouldn't say they were my best feature, though. People tell me they like my eyes. They distract from the eyebrows. -Nicholas Hoult

Before I was ever in high school, I had dark circles under my eyes. -Benicio Del Toro

You watch a hockey game, and the hand-eye coordination and the speed is really miraculous; how those guys track the puck alone, just following it with their eyes. -Liev Schreiber

In small towns, bored teenagers turn their eyes longingly to the exciting doings in the big cities, pining for urban amenities like hipster bars and farmers' markets and indie-rock festivals. Like everyone else, they want the vibrant and they will not be denied. -Thomas Frank

I don't like to fly. What's it called when the plane shakes? Turbulence, takeoffs… I grab my chair, close my eyes, count to 30, breathe, and pray. -Chanel Iman

I just want to get through each day without the need to shut my eyes for 10 minutes. -Mark Thomas

The kindest thing a director can do is look with open eyes at everything. -Alexander Payne

I think that if you keep your eyes and your ears open and you are receptive to learning, there are skills you can get from any job at all. -Cat Deeley

I find great lighting and a squint of the eyes makes anyone look better. -Cat Deeley

Whereas I used to get depressed or neurotic or dwell on things, I see my son's bright eyes and smile in the morning, and suddenly, I don't feel like I'm depressed anymore. There's nothing to be depressed about when you've got that. -Corey Feldman

I have always worked from that place, that if you are going to inhabit someone and get under their eyes, you need to have empathy. -Dominic Cooper

I don't like juries having the wool pulled over their eyes. I don't think that's what the Constitution is about. -Nancy Grace

The old bastions of the post-communist regime collapsed before my very eyes. The monsters who had kept Ukraine in a criminal state left the stage. -Yulia Tymoshenko

I know what I want to look like. I don't want to look trashy. I want mothers to be able to look at me and not have to close their kids' eyes! -Jordin Sparks

I would love to meet my soul mate. I'm always kind of keeping my eyes open for somebody. -Holly Madison

When I was a 21-year-old intern at CBS, I was told I had crossed eyes and shouldn't try to be on air. That's when I decided I was going to be behind the scenes. -Andy Cohen

I wanted to tell a dream-come-true story about going from a closeted gay kid who loved pop culture to an out adult man making pop culture. I went from being told when I was 21 that I should never go on TV because of my crossed eyes to winding up being a 'Housewives' whisperer and talk-show host. -Andy Cohen

A lady likes to be complimented on her looks, her eyes, her figure. But the personality comments are much appreciated. -Betty White

I don't seem to require a lot of sleep. I just – if I get four, five good hours, I'm fine. But sleeping is sort of dull. There's a lot of other good stuff that you can do without just lying down and closing your eyes. -Betty White

My eyes are so big that, weirdly, I feel like an alien if my eyelashes don't match their intensity. I like to curl my lashes to the point where they're sticking straight up and then put on a ton of mascara! -Sarah Hyland

Prince is the ultimate performer. Prince is that dude that's going to get on stage by himself, if he need to, but hold you in the palm of his hand. Like, you can't take your eyes off the man when he's on stage, and he could just be sitting there playing his guitar. -Ne-Yo

Being on stage makes me come to life. When all eyes are on you, they're watching every move you make. -Joe Jonas

I don't often go to curator or artist walk-throughs of exhibitions. For a critic, it feels like cheating. I want to see shows with my own eyes, making my own mistakes, viewing exhibitions the way most of their audience sees them. -Jerry Saltz

Confronting a stadium audience, you can't see the whites of their eyes. It's just an amorphous mass of noise and, of course, you can't see the alleged billions watching at home either, so the degree to which you are intimidated is quite low. -Rowan Atkinson

I usually write away from home, in coffee shops, on trains, on planes, in friends' houses. I like places where there's stuff going on that you can lift your eyes, see something interesting, overhear a conversation. -Jonathan Safran Foer

I like simple makeup, but a bit dirty-looking around the eyes – I love a smoky look. -Arizona Muse

I came to the industry with wide eyes and an open heart thinking I was going to make a few films that really meant something that I could pour myself into. -Caleb Landry Jones

I have six brothers and sisters. We all look totally different: blonde hair, curly hair, green eyes, dark eyes, dark skin, light skin. It's just how it is. -Rashida Jones

I grew up in a predominantly Caucasian community, and most of my friends had blonde hair and blue eyes. So I was always straightening my hair, wearing colored contacts, and I never tanned, if I could help it. -Shay Mitchell

To get rid of swelling… I put green tea bags on my eyelids. Or I grab cold spoons that I leave in the freezer and put them on my eyes. -Shay Mitchell

Since we launched the original 'Pop Idol' in England, I've remained close with Simon Fuller. Working as executive producer on 'American idol' for its first seven years not only was an inspirational journey into the heart of American pop culture, it opened my eyes to the untapped potential of the incredibly dynamic young people in this world. -Nigel Lythgoe

You can almost read any emotion through someone's eyes. -Jack Huston

My producer, Michael Knox, he's kind of my eyes and ears on Music Row. While I'm out on the road, he's looking for songs, and then he and I will get together and go over songs. -Jason Aldean

In 'Beowulf,' director Robert Zemeckis uses a technique called 'motion capture' to conjure fantastical things, angles into action and sweeping vistas to stun your eyes and take your breath away. But what he hasn't mastered and what the technique can't do is this: emotion capture. -Stephen Hunter

I usually end up falling for one of my really good guy friends because I know everything about them, and you fall in love with their personalities, and it makes them become attractive to you in your eyes. -Colbie Caillat

Viewers can hate a character and at the same time can't take their eyes off of him. -John Slattery

Maybe people become bitter when they don't know what they are fighting for. But I keep my eyes open. -Eva Gabrielsson

Internet marketing entrepreneurs have truly opened my eyes to just how important a quick turnaround time can be. Often times, an interview they conduct with me today is online by the next morning. The interviewee is then able to start making money less than 24 hours after the initial interview. -Marc Ostrofsky

I don't really distinguish between sympathy and honesty when I'm writing. The two go together – I'm interested in inhabiting my characters, seeing the world through their eyes. -Tom Perrotta

I desperately miss my girls when I am working, and I often feel guilty, but also feel the journey I am on is for them too. When I am on my 16th hour of a day and can barely keep my eyes open, they drive me forward. -Mika Brzezinski

I like guys with a nice smile. I know it's cliche, but it's so true! I like a guy with a nice smile and nice eyes. -Rebecca Black

Hedi Slimane told me I was boyish in his eyes. For him femininity and masculinity are the same thing, the difference is not so interesting, he said. -Saskia de Brauw

George Clooney sort of lost his 'George Clooney-ness' the first day I met him. He's not George Clooney in my eyes – he's George from Kentucky with an awesome, awesome heart. -Shailene Woodley

Look your significant other in the eyes, make that connection. -Kendall Schmidt

The deepest and most sincere feeling I get is when I meet an artist and they have that steel in their eyes and they have that fire and that passion and all they want is to be a star and to hear themselves on the radio. -L.A. Reid

Why on earth should I care whether people read me with their eyes or their ears? -Lawrence Block

I'm born originally in Toronto, and I have what I call my 'Fame' story. I took a Greyhound bus and went to Alvin Ailey and received Dunham, Horton, Graham technique there, but I could never take my eyes off of Balanchine doing 'Nutcracker'; to me he's the best who ever did it. -Laurieann Gibson

What you see with your eyes when you're making music is going to have a profound effect on what you hear. -Andrew Bird

Grief is a bad moon, a sleeper wave. It's like having an inner combatant, a saboteur who, at the slightest change in the sunlight, or at the first notes of a jingle for a dog food commercial, will flick the memory switch, bringing tears to your eyes. -Meghan O'Rourke

Consider the fellow. He never spends his time telling you about his previous night's date. You get the idea he has eyes only for you and wouldn't think of looking at another woman. -Marilyn Monroe

The thing about being an artist today is you get to develop right in front of people's eyes before you even put out an album. -J. Cole

Every year I look at the 'GQ' Best-Dressed List and have thought what an honour it must be to be included. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw my own face in there. -Douglas Booth

Being asked to support humane meat means being asked to support the suffering of animals in transport, to approve of treatment that causes them palpable fear, their bodies shaking and their eyes wide as saucers, as they are slung by their legs into crates that are slammed onto the back of a truck. -Ingrid Newkirk

I've taught the better class of tourist both to see and not to see; to lift their eyes above and beyond the inessentials, and thrill to our western Nature in her majesty. -Jonathan Raban

The real lover is the man who can thrill you just by touching your head or smiling into your eyes – or just by staring into space. -Marilyn Monroe

Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn't that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you. -Marilyn Monroe

The most important thing is to live an interesting life. Keep your eyes, ears and heart open. Talk to people and visit interesting places, and don't forget to ask questions. To be a writer you need to drink in the world around you so it's always there in your head. -Michael Morpurgo

Only the best books are special. Why? Because they open our eyes, touch us, excite us, extend us. -Michael Morpurgo

One of our ancestors came over on the Mayflower, and we had family in Jamestown as well… I was raised where service was a part of the fabric of life. It wasn't one-upmanship. No one bragged about their medals, but you could see the look in the eyes, the tip of the hat. You served your country first, then you went to work and had a family. -Steve Daines

I film quite a bit of footage, then edit. Changes before your eyes, things you can do and things you can't. My attitude is always 'let it keep rolling.' -Terrence Malick

There is this miraculous thing I heard Hugh Grant talking about – the thing about screen acting is that you can read people's thoughts. You are trying to register something inside and usually the eyes in cinema are where you will register that. -Toby Jones

I don't want to look at myself – ever. All I see is that my face is a problem. It's asymmetrical. I get terrible bags under my eyes. -Whitney Cummings

The eyes get lost in 3-D. With 3-D, your eyes are looking for the plane of focus, right? And the problem is, when you do quick cuts, your eyes can't find it. -Zack Snyder

I would love to close my eyes and see myself with my girlfriend when we're 99 years old and I have a pipe and she's knitting a sweater, and I hope that's the way it goes. I think it's a challenge every day. -Chris Messina

It seems like everything that we see perceived in the brain before we actually use our own eyes, that everything we see is coming through computers or machines and then is being input in our brain cells. So that really worries me. -Hayao Miyazaki

I have scary eyes. I look like the guy in 'American History X,' yes. I remember coming home from school and asking my mum if I could get an eye transplant, and of course she declined. -Tim Ferriss

For my first wedding, I cried all the way down the aisle. My fake eyelash came off. My nose was red. My eyes were swollen. I'm not one of those pretty criers. -Sherri Shepherd

Even if you're only wearing trainers and a vest, eyeliner will instantly transform you. People always look put-together when their make-up's on and their eyes are popping – just ask Amy Winehouse! -Beth Ditto

With a stretch belt, anything can be a dress – a dinner napkin, a tablecloth, even a towel. Just wrap and snap, and away you go in an incredible outfit. Another plus is that the belt will pull all eyes to your lovely curves, and they even look good around a coat or a jacket. -Beth Ditto

Language is a more recent technology. Your body language, your eyes, your energy will come through to your audience before you even start speaking. -Peter Guber

When somebody is enthusiastic about a job opportunity – but gives off the feeling that this is not the only one they have on the table – they become more seductive in the employer's eyes. You become more desirable because it shows that you're making a conscious and thoughtful decision for the right reasons. -Peter Guber

If you have a friend or family member with breast cancer, try not to look at her with 'sad eyes.' Treat her like you always did; just show a little extra love. -Hoda Kotb

I like that 3D is based on the fact that you look with two eyes, so two cameras imitate that. -Bernardo Bertolucci

Loving oneself isn't hard, when you understand who and what 'yourself' is. It has nothing to do with the shape of your face, the size of your eyes, the length of your hair or the quality of your clothes. It's so beyond all of those things and it's what gives life to everything about you. Your own self is such a treasure. -Phylicia Rashad

Change begins with understanding and understanding begins by identifying oneself with another person: in a word, empathy. The arts enable us to put ourselves in the minds, eyes, ears and hearts of other human beings. -Richard Eyre

As a lawyer who has dealt in defamation, I know that someone's reputation has to be lowered in the eyes of right-thinking people to sue. -David Hunt

Given the choice of Hollywood or poking steel pins in my eyes, I'd prefer steel pins. -Mike Leigh

I have a talent for happiness. I look with the eyes of a painter, and I see beauty. -Sylvia Kristel

What I get from my study of the Bible is that we're all in Christ, that we're all the same in God's eyes. -Ernie Hudson

I played football for Leeds United under-18s, but at 17 my eyes started to go and I had to wear glasses. The football had to go – there were no contact lenses in 1957. -Geoffrey Boycott

Prison opened my eyes to so many things. It was a great time. I met interesting people. I got to understand the behaviour of the police and the media. I am an observer of the human race. -Jonathan King

When my first daughter was born, my husband held her in his hands and said, 'My God, she's so beautiful.' I unwrapped the baby from her blankets. She was average size, with long thin fingers and a random assortment of toes. Her eyes were close set, and she had her father's hooked nose. It looked better on him. -Ayelet Waldman

I'm constantly pitching one episode where we see life through Castle's eyes. I think Castle's just a little off as far as his perception goes. A very, very clever man, but I want to see the world as Castle sees it – kind of a rose-colored glasses, all the women find him irresistible, all the guys find him super cool and do whatever he says. -Nathan Fillion

Manipulating people is what's so fun about poker. I love that you can just look into someone's eyes and lie – and it's perfectly acceptable. -Cheryl Hines

More than anything else, my mother wanted to be an actress – a famous actress – which in the 1950s was all about being young, sexy, and available. She was all that, and more. She had big blue eyes, alabaster skin, a heart-shaped face, a beautiful figure. She was just a knockout. -Meredith Baxter

Rachel Cusk's books are like pop-up volumes for grown-ups, the prose springing out of the page to bop you neatly between the eyes with its insights. -Julie Burchill

I look fine. I've had no surgery apart from an operation I had decades ago to remove the fat under my eyes. My mum looked 30 when she was 60, so I guess I owe it all to genes and hair dye. -David Cassidy

I have an enormous appetite to see life as I know it presented in front of my eyes. -Wallace Shawn

The most moving scene for me in 'Pride and Prejudice' is the Pemberley music room scene: Elizabeth has just saved Darcy's sister from embarrassment and confusion, and as the music plays on, Darcy's look of gratitude becomes a look of love, which we see reciprocated in Elizabeth's eyes. -Andrew Davies

I prefer love scenes to be shot up close with a lot of focus on eyes and mouths. Otherwise it can feel uncomfortable and voyeuristic. -Andrew Davies

Do people really believe there's something different about the eyes of murderers? -Bill James

When you make documentaries or short films, you have to have eyes and ears in the back of your head and on the sides and all around you. I like that in my films. -Bruce Weber

There was a point – when I was a kid – where I said I wanted to be like Luke Skywalker, with blond hair and blue eyes. My mom right there told me to never be ashamed of who I am. -Chaske Spencer

What people call serendipity sometimes is just having your eyes open. -Jose Manuel Barroso

I love watching amazing actors and actresses that you can't take your eyes off of because everything they are doing – even if it is just twiddling their thumbs or scratching their eye – it's just interesting. -Sara Paxton

I have a lot of older brothers who messed up in different ways in my mother's eyes. So I learned from all of their mistakes. I can't go into detail, but while I was growing up, I always tried to make it a goal to relieve some of the stress my mother went through. -Kellan Lutz

I write my books in my head, and not in a specific study with a view. The view is from my inner eyes. -Wilbur Smith

I used to own an island in the Seychelles and had a big boat there and one day I came across some Somali pirates who were passing by on their way to re-provision their boat. They didn't even acknowledge me – which is unheard of among sailors – and it was like looking into the eyes of a black mamba. -Wilbur Smith

You wind up creating from silence, like painting a picture on a blank canvas that could bring tears to somebody's eyes. As songwriters, our blank canvas is silence. Then we write a song from an idea that can change somebody's life. Songwriting is the closest thing to magic that we could ever experience. That's why I love songwriting. -Rodney Atkins

What I've become convinced makes a writer are the days you hate it, the days you'd rather stick those pencils in your eyes. Sometimes I almost punish myself – if I'm not going be able to write, I'm not going be able to do anything else. I just sit there and wait. -Ron Rash

Any film featuring Bradley Cooper's gorgeous blue eyes is automatically on my must-see list and they did not disappoint in 'The Words,' which is so intense and confusing that I was pretty lost by the end! -Gayle King

I can't live without my dark plum eyeliner. I use liquid because it's easier on my eyes. -Heather Morris

Peppers, garlic, hazelnuts and brazil nuts make my mouth, tongue and eyes swell and itch within minutes of eating them. -Andrea McLean

I've eaten sheep's eyes, the still hot meat from a zebra killed by a lion, and maggots which give you 70 calories to the ounce. -Bear Grylls

We need to see, and agree that what we seek already lives within us, and we within it. Now we know our one great task: watch for whatever promises us freedom, and then quietly, consciously refuse to see ourselves through the eyes of what we know is incomplete. Then we live wholeness itself, instead of spending our lives looking for it. -Guy Finley

As a father, you immediately become uncool, especially the older they get. The older you get, it's inevitable that, as cool as you think you are, you're probably just as lame in your kids' eyes. -Mark Consuelos

Frankly, the reason I joined MENSA is because I was dating a guy at the time who spoke five languages and could solve a Rubik's Cube literally with his eyes closed because it's just an algorithm. -Ashley Rickards

I don't like labels, but I do have blue eyes and I'm soulful, so what am I going to do? -Robin Thicke

The eyes are the windows of your soul, and when you're acting, they're one of your most important instruments. Especially for close-ups! -Jacki Weaver

I don't wear any make-up on normal days and at school. But, if I'm going somewhere, I always do something with my eyes – crazy colors, sparkles. I'm all for it. I love experimenting. -Elle Fanning

I like to be very girly, with bows and ruffles on the red carpet. I love pastel colours, especially blue. Me and my sister both because of our eyes look good in blues. -Elle Fanning

Every parent has those moments where they look at their child and think, 'There's a demon in those eyes and no one can see it but me!' -Emma Donoghue

A world-class playboy once told me that the key to mesmerising women is to listen to them and look deeply into their eyes. -George Hamilton

I'm a big illustration and comic book fan. In my eyes, comic books and illustration are the same kind of art forms. -Mika

Anyone who supports terrorism, anyone who sees terrorism as a legitimate means, anyone who uses terrorism to cause the death of innocent people is a terrorist in my eyes. -Milos Zeman

It's true about the eyes being the window to the soul. Your face can be etched with worry, and twisted by ageing, but the eyes tell the true story of who you are. -Naomie Harris

Reality seems so simple. We just open our eyes and there it is. But that doesn't mean it is simple. -Teller

I've been in movies with Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson – but I was on 'The Simpsons,' and finally, in the eyes of my children, I was a star. -Ed Begley, Jr.

I feel like there is something about having a copacetic world POV that helps in making a comedy. Like, David Wain has such a particular way of looking at the world. It helps when everyone can see behind his eyes, you know? -Kathryn Hahn

I had been on another procedural show, 'Cold Case,' for seven years, and I certainly respected the legacy of 'Law & Order,' even though I had only seen a handful of episodes. Being a dad meant the reality was that I probably knew more about Dora and Diego. But I saw the show with fresh eyes, and I wasn't coming in with a bunch of baggage. -Danny Pino

I was literally told for 'The Show Goes On' that I shouldn't rap too deep. I shouldn't be too lyrical. It just needs to be something easy on the eyes. Like a record company telling Picasso that we don't need these abstract interpretations of life, where people have to sit down and look at it and break it down. -Lupe Fiasco

I have very poor eyesight, and I can't imagine a world without my glasses or contacts. -Ellen Hollman

There's a strength to being able to look at products through a customer's eyes, but it is also dangerous. -Francois-Henri Pinault

I lived in Wisconsin for a while, so I keep my eyes on the Packers. I grew up in San Diego, so there's the Chargers, but outside of that, I'm really kind of lame because I don't have a specific team I pull for. -Jimmie Johnson

There's something different about looking someone in the eyes and doing something dishonest to doing it over the phone or screen. -Justin Welby

I look very different on camera compared with how I do in real life. On camera, I look my best when everything is enhanced, especially my eyes – I like a smoky eye. In real life, I like myself best in tinted moisturiser, lip balm and mascara. -Martine McCutcheon

If you keep your eyes fixed on Christ, He's going to reward you. -Steve Alford

Empathy is about standing in someone else's shoes, feeling with his or her heart, seeing with his or her eyes. Not only is empathy hard to outsource and automate, but it makes the world a better place. -Daniel H. Pink

Fiction is a particular kind of rhetoric, a way of thinking that I think can be useful in your life. It asks you to image the world through someone else's eyes, and it allows you to try to empathize with situations that you haven't actually experienced. -Dan Chaon

I live half the year in Nigeria, the other half in the U.S. But home is Nigeria – it always will be. I consider myself a Nigerian who is comfortable in the world. I look at it through Nigerian eyes. -Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

What I find problematic is the suggestion that when, say, Madonna adopts an African child, she is saving Africa. It's not that simple. You have to do more than go there and adopt a child or show us pictures of children with flies in their eyes. That simplifies Africa. -Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Being an outsider means not being heard, not having a voice. It means being treated as a second-class citizen, being diminished in the eyes of others. We have all felt this way at one time or another, but some feel it more consistently. Unfortunately, our schools often do not embrace the talents of many of their occupants. -Chris Crutcher

But I always need to identify with a character to write about him or her – and by 'identify,' I mean see the world through that person's eyes and have a strong sense of the inner logic of their acts and decisions, wacky or wrongheaded though they might be. In that sense, I think there's some of me in all of them. -Jennifer Egan

The thing about villains is most people play them with the shifty eyes and all that, whereas I play them as good guys. 'Cos everyone thinks they're a goodie, don't they? -Ray Winstone

Well, for me, my favourite 'Indiana Jones' is 'The Last Crusade,' because you get tears in your eyes when you see the old guard standing at the end, so that's my favourite one. -Ray Winstone

Famously, Anne Boleyn was not a beauty: she was more about quirkiness and an innate sensuality, and there are a lot of references to her eyes. Which sends out a great message for women, because life is not about the aesthetic all the time. -Natalie Dormer

I needed the 'Chuck' phase to appreciate the 'Captain Awesome' phase because otherwise I don't think I would have realized the flip side of that coin. I think I needed to see the world through Chuck's eyes before becoming Captain Awesome. -Ryan McPartlin

I like using snapshot cameras because they're idiot-proof. I have bad eyesight, and I'm no good at focusing big cameras. -Terry Richardson

When I'm writing fiction, I'm sort of interested by the fact that somehow or other I can have the feeling of actually seeing things through someone else's eyes. -Marilynne Robinson

Oddly enough, my favorite genre is not fiction. I'm attracted by primary sources that are relevant to historical questions of interest to me, by famous old books on philosophy or theology that I want to see with my own eyes, by essays on contemporary science, by the literatures of antiquity. -Marilynne Robinson

Going to Europe as a budding cook opened my eyes to food in a different way. When I got to Italy, the first thing I did was put my little basil plants in the ground and watch them turn into big, healthy bushes. -Frances Mayes

Celebrity poverty, that's the hidden scandal in Blair's Britain. You can't help but worry for them. A girl I knew developed X-ray eyes for celebrity sorrows. She taught me to read the subtext of the down-market celebrity interview, she knew all the Hollywood codes, and followed the deep backgrounds. -Peter York

I don't feel 70. I am still looking out from 14-year-old eyes. -Nolan Bushnell

While some of the tales of woe emanating from the court are enough to bring tears to the eyes, it is true that only Supreme Court justices and schoolchildren are expected to and do take the entire summer off. -John Roberts

Discovering various economists, economic works, reading financial periodicals and keeping up on current events in geopolitics and economics around the world opened my eyes to many facets of how the extended order works. -Kurt Bills

One of my main weaknesses is a good movie. I'll just bawl my eyes out. -Randy Houser

When fans of mine meet me, I can see the disappointment in their eyes. Every artist knows of this phenomenon. -John Banville

I'd rather give up my ears than my eyes, which might sound unusual for a musician. -John Lydon

Every time we go to sleep, it's a rehearsal of the day when our eyes will ultimately close and we wake up on the side of eternity. -Joni Eareckson Tada

I've written books as acts of discovery: things I need to know and that I need to touch. And it's very dangerous work to deal with the most toxic internal elements… I feel like Madame Curie at my computer. I feel like I should be hemorrhaging from my eyes and ears. -Kate Braverman

We need to walk into the future, no matter how unnerving, with open eyes if society is to keep pace with technology. -Lawrence M. Krauss

I went grey at 12, my eyesight went at 17. I've been a crock from very early on. -Marian Keyes

As I get older the stars have gone from my eyes more, and I see that life is just something that has to be lived with, that it's better not to struggle. -Marian Keyes

You have to find some way to not become a cynical or negative person, a person who keeps walking around and opening your eyes in the outside world but inside you close down, a person who stops expecting tomorrow to be better than today. -Richard Rohr

As much as we sometimes roll our eyes at the ivory-tower isolation of universities, they continue to serve as remarkable engines of innovation. -Steven Johnson

Wonder blasts the soul – that is, the spiritual – and the skeleton, the body – the material. Wonder interprets life through the eyes of eternity while enjoying the moment, but never lets the moment's revision exhaust the eternal. -Ravi Zacharias

I always tell my students, 'If you walk around with your eyes and ears open, you can't possibly live long enough to write all the novels you'll encounter.' -Jill McCorkle

A lot of people say, 'I always knew Lucky Luciano as a very smooth, very elegant, very powerful man.' All the accounts of him as an older man were that he was very genteel but he still had the look of smothered violence behind his eyes. -Vincent Piazza

All through my life, I didn't really consider my eyes at all, and then I became an actress. It's great, I guess. They're just in my face, and one is green and one is blue. It's different, and I'm definitely a proponent of being different in any way you can in life, so I guess if you're born a bit different that's a good thing. -Alice Eve

Why pour shampoo into a rabbit's eyes to see how much shampoo you can put in an adult's eyes before they go blind? I'll put them in my hair, in my eyes before I would give them to anyone else. -John Paul DeJoria

It was difficult being a neutral broadcaster – in the people's eyes – because of my association with the Celtics. -Tom Heinsohn

The majority of photographers focus on the obvious. They believe and accept what their eyes tell them, and yet eyes know nothing. -Duane Michals

For any victim, particularly us Americans, it is difficult to see ourselves through the eyes of our offender. But for any victim it is the most salutary thing to do. -Miroslav Volf

I've begun to look at the world through apocalypse eyes. Our society, which seems so sturdily built out of concrete and custom, is just a temporary resting place, a hotel our civilization checked into a couple hundred years ago and must one day check out of. -Neil Strauss

I hate cameras. They interfere, they're always in the way. I wish: if I could work with my eyes alone. -Richard Avedon

Instead of looking outside of ourselves and counting potential enemies, fasting summons us to turn our glance inward, and to take the measure of our greatest challenge: the self, the ego, in our own eyes and as others see us. -Tariq Ramadan

Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones. -Thich Nhat Hanh

The mistakes we make when we try to imagine our personal futures are also lawful, regular, and systematic. They, too, have a pattern that tells us about the powers and limits of foresight in much the same way that optical illusions tell us about the powers and limits of eyesight. -Daniel Gilbert

Your self-esteem won't come from body parts. You need to step away from the mirror every once in a while, and look for another reflection, like the one in the eyes of the people who love you and admire you. -Stacy London

You're put in certain situations and it kind of opens up those doors and it opens up your eyes to realize what your true calling was. -Rico Love

In a way, 'On the Road's greatest victory is that nobody's eyes will be opened any longer by reading it; the last time I met any young people who were actually 'on the road' was when I covered Occupy St. Louis. Those few, dirty kids were fighting a battle even they couldn't articulate. -Tony D'Souza

One of the things I regret is that too often in our society a person's whole identity is shaped by their sexuality, or by their sexual orientation. In good Catholic eyes, a person's sexual orientation does not matter. -Vincent Nichols

In the eyes of the Catholic Church, abortion is a tragedy. Our principle objective must be to try and win greater sympathy for that perspective and for the value of human life from its beginnings. -Vincent Nichols

You write to become immortal, or because the piano happens to be open, or you've looked into a pair of beautiful eyes. -Robert Schumann

Why should the eyes be denied what delights them most? -Pietro Aretino

Over the years, myths were built up about my relationship with Fred Astaire. The general public thought he was a Svengali, who snapped his fingers for his little Trilby to obey; in their eyes, my career was his creation. -Ginger Rogers

From the first opening of our eyes, it is the light that attracts us. We clutch aimlessly with our baby fingers at the gossamer-motes in the sunbeam, and we die reaching out after an ineffable blending of earthly and heavenly beauty which we shall never fully comprehend. -Lucy Larcom

'Impressionism' was the name given to a certain form of observation when Monet, not content with using his eyes to see what things were or what they looked like as everybody had done before him, turned his attention to noting what took place on his own retina (as an oculist would test his own vision). -John Singer Sargent

A person with normal eyesight would have nothing to know in the way of 'Impressionism' unless he were in a blinding light or in the dusk or dark. -John Singer Sargent

People who look down never get much of an idea of the sky where the stars are set. And the fellow who doesn't hitch at least one or two of his wagons to a star never gets very high up. Get your eyes off the ground. Look ahead. -George Matthew Adams

God requires his servants to walk in the light, and not cover their eyes that they may not discern the working of Satan. -Ellen G. White

If you are interested in writing, get out and live your life! Do a lot. See a lot. Keep your eyes and ears open. Pay attention to the different ways people speak. Read lots of different kinds of books. And then try writing in different voices and styles – don't be afraid to experiment. -Wendelin Van Draanen

Life, it is true, can be grasped in all its confused futility merely by opening one's eyes and sitting passively, a spectator on the stands of history – but to understand the social processes and conflicts, the interplay between individual and group, even the physicality of human experience, we have need of small-scale models. -Will Self

If we bought everything on the Internet, our eyes and mouths and nostrils would probably begin to film over with a tegument – one initially tissue-thin and capable of being removed each morning, but which gradually thickened and hardened until we were imprisoned in our own tiny minds. -Will Self
