The Glance Barely moved, the eye display diverse emotions, conveys in brief exposure what would take volumes to describe. Spoken words could do no better. A squint discloses polite disbelief when some braggart expounds ignorance. A glare lends strength to disapproval of noisy argument, or crude behavior. Eyes lifted in thoughtful surprise may also look up in supplication. Tears shed in shame, chagrin, confess to error, guilt, deserving criticism. Open wide, disguising guile, childlike innocence. may be a ruse to deceive. Down cast shut out ugly scenes, fright shocking views of cruelty or violence. Sidelong, the glance is a seductive invitation to explore romantic rewards for a prospective suitor. They say eye contact is an open door.
