The next time you look into the mirror, just look at the way the ears rest next to the head; look at the way the hairline grows; think of all the little bones in your wrist. It is a miracle. And the dance is a celebration of that miracle.martha graham
Cyberspace is the funhouse mirror of our own society.Bruce Sterling
The world is a mirror into which we look, and see our own image.john lancaster spalding
Well, I will scourge those apes, And to these courteous eyes oppose a mirror, As large as is the stage whereon we act; Where they shall see the time's deformity Anatomised in every nerve, and sinew, With constant courage, and contempt of fear.Ben Jonson
In them one can see the spontaneousand often aestheticexpressionof a peoplereflected, not ina gilt- framed drawing room mirror, but in an honest glass held up to the face of a nation.Winthrop Rockefeller
You’ve never seen death? Look in the mirror every day and you will see it like bees working in a glass hive.jean cocteau
We were high above fields, and there far, far below, was a small shadow as of a great bird tearing along the neatly marked off fields. It gave me the most tremendous shock to realize for the first time the terrific speed we were going at and that that shadow meant us — us, like a mirror! That "bird" — it was us.anne morrow lindbergh
Days I enjoy are days when nothing happens,When I have no engagements written on my block,When no one comes to disturb my inward peace,When no one comes to take me away from myselfAnd turn me into a patchwork, a jig-saw puzzle,A broken mirror that once gave a whole reflection,Being so contrived that it takes too long a timeTo get myself back to myself when they have gone.vita sackville-west
"When it's over I just want to be able to look in the mirror and say, 'Well, you were a half-decent player.'" paul scholes
I know a girl who just looks at her face in the medicine cabinet mirror and never looks below her shoulders, and she's four or five hundred pounds but she doesn't see all that, she just sees a beautiful face and therefore she thinks she's a beauty. And therefore, I think she's a beauty, too, because I usually accept people on the basis of their self-images, because their self-images have more to do with the way they think than their objective-images do.Andy Warhol
I owe the discovery of Uqbar to the conjunction of a mirror and an encyclopedia.jorge luis borges

Sunlight is one and the same wherever it falls; but only a bright surface like that of water, or of a mirror reflects it fully. So is the light Divine. It falls equally and impartially on all hearts, but the pure and pious hearts of holy men receive and reflect that light well.ramakrishna
He [Cézanne] reproduced himself with so much humble objectivity, with the unquestioning, matter of fact interest of a dog who sees himself in a mirror and thinks: there’s another dog.Rainer Maria Rilke
With a bronze mirror, one can see whether he is properly attired; with history as a mirror, one can understand the rise and fall of a nation ; with men as a mirror, one can see whether he is right or wrong. Now I've lost my faithful mirror by the death of Weizheng.
As the skull of the man grows broader, so do his creeds. And his gods they are shaped in his image and mirror his needs . And he clothes them with thunders and beauty , He clothes them with music and fire , Seeing not, as he bows by their altars, That he worships his own desire .don marquis
"All your dreams are made when you're chained to the mirror and a razor blade."
One who reveals your faults to you like a mirror is your true friend, and one who flatters you and covers up your faults is your enemy.
All faith is false, all faith is true. Truth is the shattered mirror strown in myriad bits, while each believes his little bit the whole to own.
It is not true (what some people imagine) "that the common law of England made no provision for the poor": the mirror shews the contrary. How, indeed, it was done does not appear.
