"The windows were ajar and gleaming white against the fresh grass outside that seemed to grow a little way into the house. A breeze blew through the room, blew the curtains in at one end and out the other like pale flags, twisting them up toward the frosted wedding-cake of the ceiling, and then rippled over the wine-colored rug, making a shadow on it as wind does on the sea (8)."
"The eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg are blue and gigantic---their retinas are one yard high. They look out of no face, but, instead, from a pair of enormous yellow spectacles which pass over a non-existent nose... But his eyes, dimmed a little by many paintless days under sun and rain, brood on over the solemn dumping ground (23-24)."
