“REMEMBER YOUR GREATNESS

Before you were born,
And were still too tiny for
The human eye to see,
You won the race for life
From among 250 million competitors.
And yet,
How fast you have forgotten
Your strength,
When your very existence
Is proof of your greatness.
You were born a winner,
A warrior,
One who defied the odds
By surviving the most gruesome
Battle of them all.
And now that you are a giant,
Why do you even doubt victory
Against smaller numbers,
And wider margins?
The only walls that exist,
Are those you have placed in your mind.
And whatever obstacles you conceive,
Exist only because you have forgotten
What you have already
Achieved.

Poetry by Suzy Kassem”

Henri Cartier-Bresson
“To photograph: it is to put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart.”
Henri Cartier-Bresson

Rachel Hawkins
“I was supposed to watch you, yeah. They thought it was weird that Atherton would send his own kid to Hecate, so we wanted to keep an eye on you. No pun intended.” (Archer)”
Rachel Hawkins, Demonglass

Robert Fanney
“In the depth a light will grow,
A silver shine no shadows know,
Like wings unfolding in the sky,
That circle 'round a gleaming eye,
Turning darkness all away,
Even depths will know their day,
For every shadow has its end,
In light!
Life will return again!”
Robert Fanney

“Having an eye for beauty isn't the same thing as a weakness.”
Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

Lord Byron

The mind, the Music breathing from her face,
The heart whose softness harmonised the whole —
And, oh! that eye was in itself a Soul!”
George Gordon Byron

Dejan Stojanovic
“When the star dies,
Its eye closes; tired of watching,
It flies back to its first bright dream.”
Dejan Stojanovic, Circling: 1978-1987

William Shakespeare
“One pain is lessened by another’s anguish. ... Take thou some new infection to thy eye, And the rank poison of the old will die.”
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Criss Jami
“In the age of technology there is constant access to vast amounts of information. The basket overflows; people get overwhelmed; the eye of the storm is not so much what goes on in the world, it is the confusion of how to think, feel, digest, and react to what goes on.”
Criss Jami, Venus in Arms

“Eyes so young, so full of pain ... Two lonely drops of winter rain ... And no tear could these eyes sustain ... For too much had they seen.”
Shaun Hick

“Nothing and no one is perfect. It just takes a good eye to find those hidden imperfections.”
Daphne Delacroix

David  Wong
“The human eye has to be one of the cruelest tricks nature ever pulled. We can see a tiny, cone-shaped area of light right in front of our faces, restricted to a very narrow band of the electromagnetic spectrum. We can’t see around walls, we can’t see heat or cold, we can’t see electricity or radio signals, we can’t see at a distance. It is a sense so limited that we might as well not have it, yet we have evolved to depend so heavily on it as a species that all other perception has atrophied. We have wound up with the utterly mad and often fatal delusion that if we can’t see something, it doesn’t exist. Virtually all of civilization’s failures can be traced back to that one ominous sentence: ‘I’ll believe it when I see it.’ We can’t even convince the public that global warming is dangerous. Why? Because carbon dioxide happens to be invisible.”
David Wong, This Book Is Full of Spiders

Dean Koontz
“Always, the eye sees more than the mind can comprehend, and we go through life self-blinded to much that lies before us. We want a simple world, but we live in a magnificently complex one, and rather than open ourselves to it, we perceive the world through filters that make it less daunting.”
Dean Koontz, Relentless

Charles Darwin
“To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I confess, absurd in the highest degree...The difficulty of believing that a perfect and complex eye could be formed by natural selection , though insuperable by our imagination, should not be considered subversive of the theory.”
Charles Darwin

“Beauty is in the heart of the beholder.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Pope John XXIII
“I have looked into your eyes with my eyes. I have put my heart near your heart.”
Pope John XXIII

Peter Carey
“She held out her hand, like a man. He hesitated, then took the hand and shook it. It was very warm. You could not help but be aware of the wild passage of blood on the other side of its wall, veins, capillaries, sweat glands, tiny factories in the throes of complicated manufacture. [He] looked at the eyes and, knowing how eyes worked, was astonished, not for the first time, at the infinite complexity of Creation, wondering how this thing, this instrument for seeing, could transmit so clearly its entreaty while at the same time—-Look, I am only an eye—-denying that it was doing anything of the sort.”
Peter Carey, Oscar and Lucinda

Malcolm de Chazal
“The glance embroiders in joy, knits in pain, and sews in boredom.
When indifferent, the eye takes stills, when interested, movies.
Laughter is regional: a smile extends over the whole face.”
Malcolm de Chazal

Shannon Celebi
“Instead, I opened my eyes to find the thing in front of my face, wafting dead horse breath across my chin and up my nose, its mouth like a gaping maw; its eyes, two giant wormholes, twisting and bending with some apparitional substance that could have been space and time if I’d known anything about physics.”
Shannon Celebi, 1:32 P.M.

Ken Ham
“To suppose that the eye, with all its inimitable contrivances . . . could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, ABSURD in the highest possible degree.”
Ken Ham, Inside the Nye Ham Debate: Revealing Truths from the Worldview Clash of the Century

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Man's eye is his imagination.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

Thomm Quackenbush
“A moose can and will murder the unwary in ways obvious to improbable. They can trample you, the pressure of tons of muscle and bone turning your own into jelly. Their antlers pose an understandable risk not merely of goring at thirty-five miles an hour but picking up your limp body and tossing it over a cliff. As though this was an insufficient threat, their nostrils may house bumblebee-like Cephenemyia ulrichii, flies unable to distinguish between moose nasal cavities and human eye sockets when spraying their larvae. You wouldn’t die, but you would need immediate medical attention to prevent significant injury and certain embarrassment when your friends found out.”
Thomm Quackenbush, Holidays with Bigfoot

Mehmet Murat ildan
“There is nothing that an eye looking at you cannot tell you, as long as you have an eye that can read what that eye says!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Lailah Gifty Akita
“The ear is never tired of hearing nor the eye tired of seeing.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Like that of the house, the all too common overuse of the neck leads to the underuse of the muscles of the eye.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Israelmore Ayivor
“Eye contact is one good skill to adopt when speaking in public. However, beware of the culture of people you are speaking to before you contact them with your eyes. Take note of their age range. In some cultures, looking into the face of an elderly person when talking is considered as disrespect. Some cultures don't have problem with it at all.”
Israelmore Ayivor
