The pinpoints of starlight we see with the naked eye are photons that have been streaming toward us for a few years or a few thousand.
Normal is in the eye of the beholder.
I've watched with a kind of wary eye how gaming has progressed. I was there at the beginning with Pong in the arcade, and a lot of my great childhood memories were around a 'Tempest' machine.
Corporate America cannot afford to remain silent or passive about the downward spiral we are undergoing. It cannot turn a blind eye to how difficult the experience of life is for so many of their customers.
Some people have told me that I'm grumpy; it's not something that I'm aware of. It's not like I walk around poking children in the eye... not very small ones, anyway.
When things are difficult, awful, stressful, the thing that always gets you through is a sense of humour. I don't mean - well, maybe I do - laugh at the hangman as he puts the noose around your neck. But an eye, an ear, for the ridiculous, the absurd in life, can get you through a lot.
I think with anybody who's doing well in the public eye or whatever, there's always gonna be a shift because people don't wanna see somebody happy all the time. And they're gonna try to take shots at people.
There's a certain amount of freedom involved in cycling: you're self-propelled and decide exactly where to go. If you see something that catches your eye to the left, you can veer off there, which isn't so easy in a car, and you can't cover as much ground walking.
Our material eye cannot see that a stupid chauvinism is driving us from one noisy, destructive, futile agitation to another.
My learning process is by eye alone; it's not at all scientific.

In truth, to know oneself seems to be the hardest of all things. Not only our eye, which observes external objects, does not use the sense of sight upon itself, but even our mind, which contemplates intently another's sin, is slow in the recognition of its own defects.
I try to live my life every day in the present, and try not to turn a blind eye to injustice and need.
Standing on soil feels so much different than standing on city pavement; it lets you look inward and reflect and see who you really are, while you see a beautiful, unspoiled land as far as the eye can see. It allows your inner life to grow.
What we have now is doctors who are actually better technically at what they're doing in their specialty than 30 or 40 years ago, but we lost the relationship, when the doctor would look people in the eye and say, 'I care about you. We can do this together.'
Just as Pollock used the drip to meld process and product, Richter 'found' and used the smudge and the blur to ravish the eye, creating works of psychic and physical power.
Successive American presidents have turned a blind eye to piles of evidence that Saudi money is being used to foment holy war against America.
The objects of the present life fill the human eye with a false magnification because of their immediacy.
The eye of genius has always a plaintive expression, and its natural language is pathos.
Lydia M. Child
Don't forget that the only two things people read in a story are the first and last sentences. Give them blood in the eye on the first one.
Herbert Bayard Swope
Threat is in the eye of the beholder.
If you're in the public eye, people are going to take shots at you.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
