Famous quotes containing the word wink:

    Stars, hide your fires;
    Let not light see my black and deep desires!
    The eye wink at the hand; yet let that be
    Which the eye fears, when it is done, to see.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The eye is the casement at which the heart generally looks out. Many a woman who will not show herself at the door, has tipt the sly, the intelligible wink from the window.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)

    Nor do they trust their tongue alone,
    But speak a language of their own;
    Can read a nod, a shrug, a look,
    Far better than a printed book;
    Convey a libel in a frown,
    And wink a reputation down.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)
