I'm agree with this sentence.
Our eyes usually say true. If we are sad, are eyes are sad.
In the world there are a lot of people who can talk everythink about ourselves. Probably, in our eyes can look our nature and soul.
During communicate, eyes have a great role. They help us to fully understand other person, because they express all feelings.

I don't really know if we communicate more with our eyes, but I think that we communicate other things with our eyes, or in general, with our body or with the nonverbal communication. There are so many things that we lose when we have a written conversation, in chats or forums, because we can't know what intonation is using the other person or, most important, which are the feelings that the other person are feeling in that moment. That's one of the biggest inputs of nonverbal communication, without words, another person can tell what is happening to you only by looking at you.

I attended a sales presentation about 20 years ago, and what I still remember from that is this statistic: 93% of communication is non-verbal. I think of how many times I meet people and they tell me their name, and I forget it the next second. But I can remember the person's eye color. I think there is more to communication than words, but what percent I am not sure,

It depends on your daily activities.

If you work as a telephone operator, you communicate more with words than your eyes.
We're all friends, right?

Hi,
Generally , those who can speak usually communicate with a language. We speak and write to pass our massages.When speaking is involved, the nonverbal signs such as hand gestures,eye-contact, body posture and so forth are too helping to express . Thus , we don't use eyes more than words. But , it helps to express the messages more effectively .
In some situations where speaking are not possible, such as in the library, hospital, run into a pretty girl with a partner beside her.... and so forth, we do try to use eyes and hand gestures to communicate.
Even those who are mute do not communicate with eyes only ,instead they use signs language. Babies who can't speak too don't use eyes to communicate, they cry, laugh, babbling , cooing and body language....
Those who are in love maybe experiencing communicating with eyes more than words??? Ha! Ha! Ha!!!{-: :lol: :roll:
what is sign language exactly?
