The eye speaks with an eloquence and truthfulness surpassing speech. It is the window out of which the winged thoughts often fly unwittingly. It is the tiny magic mirror on whose crystal surface the moods of feeling fitfully play, like the sunlight and shadow on a still stream. - Henry Theodore Tuckerman
A lot has been said about eyes, about their ability to mirror the inner being that you are. The look that you give with your eyes, piercing or soft, flashing or calm, their size, their shape, all culminate into the beauty of your overall being. The color of your eyes, however, is known to speak a lot of your personality. Though eye color is genetically determined, and is often a combination of the color of both your parents' eyes, a lot of observations have been made about a person's personality depending on their eye color. They speak about the person you are, about how you deal with the different situations in your life, and how you endure change. Eye colors may range from jet black to a deep blue, and to a light brown. Though there may be variations in the shades of a particular color, these shades usually depict similar personalities.
