Men seldom make passes, at girls who wear glasses.
Friends To borrow my books and set wet glasses on them.Edwin Arlington Robinson
Famous people come up to me, but I don't know who they are because my sight is so bad. It's always at the pool of the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills when I don't have my lenses in and my glasses are in my room. ... With the number of people I ignore, I'm lucky I work at all in this town.helena bonham carter
Fill all the glasses there, for whyShould every creature drink but I?Why, man of morals, tell me why?Abraham Cowley
We meet neath the sounding rafter,And the walls around are bare;As they shout back our peals of laughterIt seems that the dead are there.Ho! stand to your glasses steady!'T is all we have left to prize.A cup to the dead already,—Hurrah for the next that dies!bartholomew dowling

Ho! stand to your glasses steady! 'Tis all we have left to prize. A cup to the dead already, Hurrah for the next that dies.bartholomew dowling
I switched glasses when your back was turned! Ha ha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - the most famous is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line"! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!Vizzini
Trade hardly deems the busy day begun Till his keen eye along the sheet has run; The blooming daughter throws her needle by, And reads her schoolmate's marriage with a sigh; While the grave mother puts her glasses on, And gives a tear to some old crony gone. The preacher, too, his Sunday theme lays down To know what last new folly fills the town; Lively or sad, life's meanest, mightiest things, The fate of fighting cocks, or fighting kings.charles sprague
