Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.
Objects close to the eye shut out much larger objects on the horizon; and splendors born only of the earth eclipse the stars. So a man sometimes covers up the entire disk of eternity with a dollar, and quenches transcendent glories with a little shining dust.edwin hubbell chapin
Slip inside the eye of your mind / don't you know you might find / A better place to playSo I'll start a revolution from my bed / Because you said the brains I had went to my head.Please don't put you're life in the hands / Of a rock 'n' roll band / Who'll throw it all away"Noel Gallagher
I feel convinced that every man has given him of God much more than he has any idea of, and that he can help on the world's work more than he knows of. What we want is the single eye that will see what our work is, the humility to accept it, however lowly, the faith to do it for God, the perseverance to go on till death.norman macleod
Pyramiding instructions appear on dollar bills. Add smaller and smaller amounts on the way up. Keep your eye open at the top.ed seykota
Well, God knows he don't need any brains to buck barley bags. But don't you try to put nothing over, Milton. I got my eye on you.john steinbeck
It is easier to love humanity as a whole than to love one's neighbor. … Some of the worst tyrannies of our day genuinely are "vowed" to the service of mankind, yet can function only by pitting neighbor against neighbor. The all-seeing eye of a totalitarian regime is usually the watchful eye of the next-door neighbor. In a Communist state love of neighbor may be classed as counter-revolutionary.
Truly the eye was… …made to cast a lineament, a conducting wire between the most heterogeneous things. Such a wire, of maximum ductility, should allow us to understand, in a minimum of time, the relationship which connect, without possible discharge of continuity, innumerable physical and mental structures… …the key (of the mental prison, ed.) lies in a free unlimited pay of analogies… …one can admire today a canvas signed by Gorky , “The liver is the Cock’s Comb”, which should be considered the great open door to the analogy world.andré breton
The young watch television twenty-four hours a day, they don't read and they rarely listen. This incessant bombardment of images has developed a hypertrophied eye condition that's turning them into a race of mutants. They should pass a law for a total reeducation of the young, making children visit the Galleria Borghese on a daily basis.Federico Fellini
I leant upon a coppice gate When Frost was spectre-gray, And Winter’s dregs made desolate The weakening eye of day The tangled bine-stems scored the sky Like strings of broken lyres, And all mankind that haunted nigh Had sought their household fires.thomas hardy
“Go back to Earth with a lip unsealed go back with an open eye, “And carry my word to the Sons of Men or ever ye come to die: “That the sin they do by two and two they must pay for one by one “And the God that you took from a printed book be with you, Tomlinson!”rudyard kipling
A watchful eye must be kept on ourselves lest while we are building ideal monuments of Renown and Bliss here we neglect to have our names enrolled in the Annals of Heaven.james madison
You are a particularly clever girl: almost as clever as you are appealing to the eye.jack vance
It is still her use To let the wretched man outlive his wealth, To view with hollow eye and wrinkled brow An age of poverty.william shakespeare
The Chinese say that we Europeans have one eye, they themselves two, all the world else is blinde.robert burton
Thine eye was on the censer, And not the hand that bore it.
She was a good deal shock'd; not shock'd at tears, For women shed and use them at their liking; But there is something when man's eye appears Wet, still more disagreeable and striking.lord byron
Athens, the eye of Greece , mother of arts and eloquence, native to famous wits.john milton
Natya Shastra was the root for both Bharata Natyam and Kathak, and both are of the same period. Kathak, which flourished in the North , was in the direct eye of the typhoon of invasions.
It is a basilisk unto mine eye, Kills me to look on't.william shakespeare
Care keeps his watch in every old man's eye, And where care lodges, sleep will never lie; But where unbruised youth with unstuff'd brain. Doth couch his limbs, there golden sleep doth reign.william shakespeare
The Greeks elaborated several theories of vision. According to the Pythagoreans , Democritus , and others vision is caused by the projection of particles from the object seen, into the pupil of the eye. On the other hand Empedocles , the Platonists , and Euclid held the strange doctrine of ocular beams, according to which the eye itself sends out something which causes sight as soon as it meets something else emanated by the object.
"Whether two molecules are (dis)similar is in the eye of the beholder. Scientists look to fool the receptor - but you really want to fool the patent office."
Art thy not content that thou hast done something conformable to thy nature, and dost thou seek to be paid for it? Just as if the eye demanded recompense for seeing, or the feet for walking. For as these members are formed for a particular purpose … so also is man formed by nature to acts of benevolence.
I wrote The Green eye of the Little Yellow God in five hours, but I had it all planned out. It isn't poetry and it does not pretend to be, but it does what it sets out to do. It appeals to the imagination from the start: those colours, green and yellow, create an atmosphere.
