Oft in the tranquil hour of night, when stars illume the sky, I gaze upon each orb of light, and wish that thou wert by.
Their gaze met for a few seconds. The exchange was as warm and friendly as a pair of automated range finders getting a mutual target lock.dan abnett
God, the Great Giver, can open the whole universe to our gaze in the narrow space of a single lane.rabindranath tagore
Nor second he, that rode sublime Upon the seraph-wings of ecstasy, The secrets of th'abyss to spy. He passed the flaming bounds of place and time: 370 The living throne, the sapphire-blaze, Where angels tremble, while they gaze, He saw; but blasted with excess of light, Closed his eyes in endless night.thomas gray
Would that I were the heaven, that I might be all full of love-lit eyes to gaze on thee.Plato
The medium's gaze is brief, intense, and promiscuous. The shelf life of the moral causes it makes its own is brutally short.Michael Ignatieff
Let me look into a human eye; it is better than to gaze into sea or sky; better than to gaze upon God.Herman Melville
Dear friends, have you begun to sing the "new song? " Loved ones are singing it in the heavenly home, and we may sing it here; and by and by we shall join them, gaze with them on the risen, glorified Lord, and our voices will mingle in the "new song" "unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood, to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever."abbott eliot kittredge
Lo these were they, whose souls the Furies steel'd,And curs'd with hearts unknowing how to yield.Thus unlamented pass the proud away,The gaze of fools, and pageant of a day!So perish all, whose breast ne'er learn'd to glowFor others' good, or melt at others' woe.Alexander Pope
Let our object be, our country, our whole country, and nothing but our country. And, by the blessing of God, may that country itself become a vast and splendid monument, not of oppression and terror, but of Wisdom, of Peace, and of Liberty, upon which the world may gaze with admiration for ever!Daniel Webster
But so fair, She takes the breath of men away Who gaze upon her unaware.
Yes, I know , we are merely empty forms of matter, but we are indeed sublime in having invented God and our soul. So sublime, my friend, that I want to gaze upon matter, fully conscious that it exists, and yet launching itself madly into Dream, despite its knowl edge that Dream has no existence, extolling the Soul and all the divine impressions of that kind which have collected within us from the beginning of time and proclaiming, in the face of the Void which is truth, these glorious lies!stéphane mallarmé
I feel in my sinews The spreading of shadows Converging together With a shiver And in solitary vigil After flights triumphal My head rise From this scythe Through a clean rupture That serves to dissever The ancient disharmony With the body As drunk from fasting It persists in following With a haggard bound Its gaze profound Up where the frozen Absolute has chosen That nothing shall measure Its vastness, O glacier But according to a ritual Illumined by the principle That chose my consecration It extends a salutation.stéphane mallarmé
We cannot be young twice; we cannot turn upon our steps, and go back to gather the garlands we gathered ten years ago. And, therefore, with a gaze over on the cross upon the distant hills, and a remembrance always of the shadow land that lies beyond, let us endeavor to be contented with small things, and to make ourselves happy in the pleasantness of simple pleasures.holme lee
Yes. Your gaze has grown strong. Now I can finally die and leave the rest to you. [Final thoughts]
Then yield thee, coward, And live to be the show and gaze o' the time.
Natural, reckless, correct skill; yesterday's clarity is today's stupidity. The universe has dark and light, entrust oneself to change. One time, shade the eyes and gaze afar at the road of heaven.
